Go through the normal setup. Year, month, day, time, DST and the location (north, center, south).

Hit program and make sure all events are clear. Program the first (ON) event, press the TIME button and press /- (with the hour segment blinking) until you see the Sun/Moon symbol indicating the sunset time. Press PROG and program the (OFF) event. Press the /- buttons until you see the Sun/Moon symbol indicating the sunrise time.

Hitting resume clears events if you accidentally entered them.

Make sure you display shows AUTO and you're good to go.

    I should also add that you will have to set the days of the week that you want when programming the timer. It's difficult to see them as they are small and at the top of the LCD. If you do not set them it won't work.

    Phil, I am going to give this a shot, as soon as I have had enough coffee and my eyes are wide open. Yes, all is in very small letters and hard to see. If I had known it was going to be this much trouble, I would have left well enough alone with the manuel switch.

    nearly 4 years later, I want to thank Phil Godfrey for giving me the clue to getting mine (0141224) working correctly. I didn't realize the days needed to be set too - was going nuts trying to figure out why mine wasn't working.

Operating Utilitech #tm-029mitem #0192773 what is the button on right (next to on/off button)


The first press of the button to the right of the On/Off button on the Utilitech TM-029 will display the current Sunrise time. You can then adjust this time with the +/- buttons. A second press will display the Sunset time and allow you to adjust that.

This is useful if you want a light to come on at sunset (or a time near sunset) and go off at sunrise every day.

I found the manual for the TM-029 here: http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-LW60419.html . Look in the right hand column under Resource. The direct link to the manual is http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Utilitec-TM-029-timer.pdf .

I hope this helps.

How do I set the time?


S E T U P
SET UP is performed once during
installation to set the internal CLOCK, ASTRO (sunrise/sunset)
times and HOLIDAY references. After entering and okaying the
ASTRO Zone, the timer will display calculated "center of time
zone" times when prompting for sunrise and sunset entries. You
may OK these, enter actual sunrise/sunset times or enter offset
times for early or late ASTRO operation. Sunrise time must be
before noon; sunset time must be after noon. Sunset must not be
within 5 hours of sunrise. Both sunrise and sunset must be
entered, even if only one is used for switching. If neither is
required, you may skip ahead by pressing HLDY or PROG keys.
(See map pp. 24-25 for details.) Holidays are entered with 2-digit
reference numbers; a chart for recording the date(s) is located on
page 22. Leap years are preset through the year 2094


PROGRAM is used for entering or
changing the switching schedule for loads wired into the time
switch. You can program circuits separately or concurrently. Each
entry affects loads whose Enable switches are in the enable
position at the time of data entry (2 circuit models only). The
time switch is shipped in a 12-hr. AM/PM mode; you can change
to 24-hr. by removing a jumper on the circuit board (see Special
Instructions). It can store a minimum of 400 events, depending
on the data type entered.
The time switch prompts you through SET UP and PROGRAM
with LEDs that advance after each entry. There are five important
points to remember:
1) The RUN/SET switch must be in the SET position to enter,
review or change data.
2) You must press "OK" after each entry, before starting the next.
3) You must press AM or PM after entering time (unless
programming Sunrise and Sunset or in 24-hour mode).
4) When in PROGRAM you must select the loads you want to
control with the Enable switches (2 circuit models only).
5) RUN/SET switch must be returned to RUN position to enable
automatic control and to save changes to data.

These keys are used for most data entry. Note dual functions,
numeric or day specific. Using the day group keys WKDY,
WKND and ALL (for all 7 days) greatly speeds the process.
The keypad keys are only functional when the RUN/SET switch is
in the SET position. Pressing keys when in the RUN position will
cause a message to scroll, explaining the function of that key. Press
any key once to stop any of the scrolling error or help messages


You must press AM or PM after entering time data (except Sunrise
or Sunset) unless in 24-hr. mode. Programming fixed times for
ON and OFF events does not require PULSE, INTVL or ASTRO
keys. Multiple ONs or OFFs can be entered by pressing OK
without programming the alternate OFF or ON. Multiple OFF
times are frequently used to "sweep" off loads which have been
manually switched on after normal occupancy hours.
PULSE and INTVL (Interval) are length-of-time based options.
Maximum Pulse is 127 sec.; minimum is 1 sec. Maximum Interval
is 6 days, 23 hrs., 59 min.; minimum is 1 min. To program Pulses
or Intervals, press the PULSE or INTVL key after entering a Switch
On or Switch Off time; then enter the required duration and press
OK. Note after ON Pulses or Intervals have timed out the load
will be OFF, and after OFF Pulses or Intervals have timed out the
load will be ON, regardless of the load state prior to the start of
the Pulse or Interval. The INTVL and PULSE keys include a
temporary override function with a maximum length of 6 days, 23
hrs. and 59 min. for the interval or 127 seconds for the pulse. To
program an interval or pulse for override, select SET, enable the
circuit, press PROG, press INTVL
or PULSE (without selecting a
day), key in the interval or pulse

Utilitech #0192773 setting the timer for not working


I do not have repair for defective timer.
Open following link for clear large-print instructions.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html

Add a comment about part of manual that does not work, for possible additional help.
1) Timer replaces single-pole light switch only.
2) Timer does not have a battery and must be wired correctly before programming can take place.
3) Choose either dawn-dusk or programmable on-off:
Timer can be set for dawn-dusk operation
-OR-
Timer can be set with 7-day on-off functions of your choice

http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html

I have been testing the 0192773, and other timers, for wire and program difficulties.
Good news: your timer is wired correctly. This timer will not operated lights with incorrect wiring.

programming steps are long, but same as other programmable timers.
The 0192773 is a 7-day or sunrise/sunset timer

1) Most programmable timers will not 'work as expected' if there is a conflict in programming.
They suggest you make a schedule of times before programming

2) One of the things this timer offers are individual days -or- groups of days > for example weekend only -or- weekdays only -or- all days of week -plus- individual days. For me, it was a bit confusing keeping that straight while programming

3) Each Program has ON time and OFF time
So Program1 ON has to be set same days as Program1 OFF

4) The other difficulty was how fast the display shifted back to current time when I was programming. If I looked at the instructions for a moment, my display would change before I could catch up. So it's possible that an ON or OFF time could be missed easily.

5) Finally, if you are using the timer as a sunrise/sunset, you need to enter Sunrise or Sunset with program1 ON and program1 OFF

I think the problem is in your programs:
You can use paperclip and hold in reset button for a few seconds and start over
Or
You can press PROG button and and re-check and re-set each program.

By the way, when setting current time, I noticed the timer let you chose a year up to the year 2099. I thought that was an optimistic outlook for both operator and timer.

http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html

1) I am going to guess you have the Utilitec 0192773 in-wall timer that replaces a switch
I say this because you are controlling outdoor lights -and- because you have the dusk-to-dawn feature.

2) Short answer: I think you have selected your days incorrectly when programming timer
To review your programs:
Press PROG button once and program1 ON displays
Press PROG again and program1 OFF displays
Press PROG third time, program2 ON displays >> a fourth time progrom2 OFF displays
And so on..

3) I suggest you write out a schedule of your times
Press PROG button and then press TIME button to see your programming: Review the days carefully, review if you have sunrise-sunset selected for each program. You can change the setting while going by using the +- button.

4) As a general rule, programmable timers do not 'operate as expected' if there is a conflicting program. For example program1 says on at 7 and off at 8, and program2 says the opposite.
Suggested solution is make a chart of your settings before programming.

5) Long answer: write out the manual instructions that seem unclear to you

6) To reset everything and start over, push & hold reset button with a paperclip.

Here I am testing the Utilitec timers for wiring and programming difficulties

I have a utilitech 0192773 self adjusting timer that will not program. Only works with manual on / off switch. How do you adjust to dusk to dawn


Do not go to Utilitech.com; it's a different company. It's actually at place called TheNCC and is in tiny, tiny print at the bottom of the instructions.

Instead, go to:
http://thencc.com/ncc/support_results.asp?criteria=192773&Submit=Go&SearchRun=RunGo

You should find a PDF for the product and then zoom in to be able to read the instructions. I was not able to read instructions that came in packaging.
