SOURCE: intermatic outdoor can't reprogram. display reads NoOp

Les, First thing to do is to change the battery and see if the timer will allow you to reprogram it. Sometimes these timers will fail, as some models have a known history of failing fairly often.

NoOp, means non operating within the Intermatic line of electronic timers, so in order to see if the unit has failed or is just malfunctioning, due to a weak battery, remove the existing battery and install a fresh, new one.

You can remove the existing battery by flipping down the front switch panel and removing the battery tray with either your fingernail or a small flat bladed screwdriver. As your timer is showing the NoOp, you don't have to worry about losing your programmed on/off cycles, so you can take your time. Normally, if you're changing the battery, you get about 30 seconds to do this with some models of Intermatic timers, or you'll lose the settings. The newer models store the program regardless of how long it takes to change the battery.

Once you've replaced the battery, press the Reset button on the timer and allow it to refresh. If the NoOp is gone, just reprogram the timer with your on/off cycles and days and you're back in action. If the timer doesn't clear, you'll likely need to replace it, as it could be damaged and will not be able to be programmed again.

Usually, changing the battery and resetting the timer works about 60% of the time for me, as I've installed thousands of the various Intermatic timers in customer's homes over the years.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Let's review your wiring. There's probably something miswired when you get symptoms like that. Let's work one circuit at a time.

For circuit #1, the incoming (LINE) black (hot) wire is connected to the #3 terminal. The white (neutral) is connected to the "A" terminal. The bare equipment grounding wire is connected to the "GR" terminal (the green screw on the case).

The outgoing (LOAD) black wire to the first set of lights is connected to terminal #4 and the outgoing white (neutral) wire connects to the "A" terminal. The outgoing bare wire to the lights goes to the "GR" terminal. It's best to twist the wires together with a pigtail, wirenut them and connect the pigtail to the "GR" terminal.

Now for separate circuit #2. The incoming (LINE) black (hot) connects to terminal #1. The incoming white (neutral) connects to terminal "A". The incoming bare wire connects to the "GR" terminal.

The outgoing (LOAD) black wire to the 2nd set of lights connects to the #2 terminal. The outgoing white (neutral) goes to the "A" terminal. It's OK to twist all the white neutral wires (incoming _and_ outgoing for _both_ circuits) together with a pigtail that goes to the "A" terminal. Use a red wirenut.

As long as you don't load the 15 amp breaker over 12 amps (this is considered a continuous circuit and it cannot be loaded over 80% per NEC), you don't have to have two circuits if you don't want too. Figure about 1 amp per light as long as the lights aren't over 100 watt. (100 watt lamp/120 volts = 0.83 amps (round to one amp)

How do you program a Tork 602A timer? I can't get mine to cycle on and off at a desired time.


The Tork 602A mechanical outdoor timer with 2 grounded outlets.
Tork 601A and 602A manual
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Tork-601A-Manual.pdf
Manual has images of timer that will help.

Plug timer into outdoor outlet.
To set current time, rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Dial is divided into light and dark sections that represent day or nighttime hours.
Reset time after power outage.

96 pins located around timer dial are used to set on-off times.
Each pin represents 15 minutes in 24 hour day
Move pins in-or-out with fingernail or ink pen to set timer on-off functions.
With Tork timers, usually when pins are out, timer is ON.
When pins are in, timer is OFF.
To double-check pin setting, manually rotate timer to watch when lights turn on-off.

Set multiple ON/OFFs each day.
Change on-off times by resetting a pin or two.
Timer repeats every 24-hours.

Manual ON/TIMER switch is located on inner dial.

Set Manual switch to TIMER for programs to operate.
To override time and turn on Load, move override to ON position.

My intermatic time HB51R flashes on and off when on the timer position (2,4,6, hours) it keeps the lights lit on the "on" position and "off" on the off position


I think the timer's photoelectric eye is getting too much light from the Load it turns on.
To check this, set timer at 2 hours, and then put black tape over the photoelectric eye so timer senses that it is dark and turns ON.
If timer does not blink with black tape, then problem is too much light with will cause on-off cycling of the timer.
If timer blinks with black tape over the eye, then timer is suspect. Exchange timer for another one.

Need instructions for setting Globe outdoor timer photocell model one button on/off #16UL/PC-24222


Use the on/off button to cycle through in the following order:

F = off

0 = on

1-9 = Number of hours unit stays on after detecting 15 seconds of low light

R = Random. After detecting low lux for 15 seconds, unit will select random number of hours to stay on. Will repeat randomization cycle in 24 hrs

d = On from dusk til dawn

1.-9. = (number followed by period) On now and will shut off after the indicated number of hours elapses.

Neat little timer. Have fun with it.

Hi i have a timer outdoors running xmas lights its remote after i turn them off the lights are very dim i have to pull plug out before they go off ive had three timers so far the lights r led


This sounds like load leakage current through the timing device. The timers shown in the picture use electronic control components and do not turn the power all the way off like a light switch, especially if not grounded properly. This can cause issues with LED lights since they are basically diodes and can "leak" power in reverse bias.

Most of these timers have a three-prong plug - they should be plugged into a grounded, three prong outlet so the residual current is shunted off during the "off" cycle.

In plain English, the circuit should be grounded.

You could try another type of timer, like one meant for air conditioners or lamps - they use a basic on/off switch. However, these devices may not be rated for outdoor use so be careful.

Lights continue to go off


Maybe the lights are causing photoelectric eye to sense that it's no longer dark.
This is called feedback.
To check this, set timer for 2 hours.
Put black tape over photoeye.
Check if timer turns on-and-off.

If timer continues to blink, then timer is suspect. Return it for another one.
If feedback is causing the problem, then turn timer away from lights or place obstruction between timer and lights.
