Lost instruction for operation of woods indoor digital 24 hour timer (59203)

1) Copy following link for possible manual:

2) Don't forget to reset timer to clear traces of prior programming.
Timer has internal rechargeable battery that eventually gives out, rendering timer useless.
Timer has 1 year limited warranty through Coleman.

3) Suggested replacement timer: Woods 59009, 59008, 59007.
Two prong and 3-prong outlets, rated for CFL LED incandescent etc

4) Or buy timer locally for ez return if timer does not work.

5) Jan 2013: Best brands for warranty support are probably Woods, Intermatic, GE, Tork, Sylvania, Leviton.
Promotional-grade timers from First Alert, Timex, Brinks, Stanley-Westinghouse, Utilitec etc may not have clear on-line warranty support.

I have two new TM106/1D timers. I have followed the instructions but cannot get either one to even advance the time to reach the first light colored pin to start the timing cycle. I have placed the start...

Remove any pins that you put in.
If the pins do not remove, pull them out away from the center.
Plug the timer into an outlet.
Test the outlet with some other device like the light to ensure it is working.
If the timer clock does not rotate, the device is defective.

How to program residential timer mod no 49750/tm261a

49750 sounds like a Woods timer number, but I can't identify for sure
Woods makes timers for many other brands that are sold under different numbers

Amazon shows First Alert tm261 random vacation timer
If this is not your timer, then add a comment.

First Alert tm261 random vacation timer is similar to GE 15151 shown on following page.
GE 15151 has a manual
First Alert appears just below GE 15151

A vacation timer cannot be programmed.
Look closely at outer edge of dial and see that dial has small plastic protrusions that stick out.
These protrusions are trippers that cause timer to turn lights on-off at random times so home looks occupied when on vacation.

I don't know how to set it and can't find my manual

You posted under First Alert timers.
I believe these timers are another brand packaged under First Alert name.

Yesterday, a fellow posted at fixya and said his First Alert timer was a Woods timer product.
You can see Woods timers and manuals and compare photos and see if your timer is shown. Link has manuals for each timer shown.

I e-mailed First Alert asking for clarification and support because so many folks are at fixya looking for First Alert timer manuals and instructions.
Searching for First Alert timers, top results give fixya, which promises solutions and manuals.
We fixya folks have lots of information not available elsewhere.
Right now, the web does not show any manuals or instructions for First Alert timers.
First Alert website does not list timers as one of their products.
When I find these manuals, I will add a comment to this post and keep you advised.
