When i plug it in there is no display is it broken ?


Reset timer using reset button, and see if functionality begins.
Plug timers into different outlets.
Test outlets for correct polarity and that they deliver at least 80% rated value, 115 volts x 80% = 92 volts.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#Timex

Most timers have 1 year limited warranty through manufacturer.
Timex timers are not made by or display on Timex website.
Unknown where warranty is honored.
Suggest GE, Woods, Intermatic timers since these have specific web links for warranty coverage, but you have to send timer in.
This is why I suggest buying timers at local box store, then if problem occurs, buy another timer and return defect in new package, thus giving convenient extended warranty coverage.

The "F" LED remains on and I'm unable to get it to change states by depressing the settings button. This has happened on two of the units that are both less than 6 months old. Any ideas?


Copy following link to identify timer, and find comparable product that might last longer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#2001

Check output voltage at outlet using multimeter. Should be minimum 80% rated value or 110Volt outlet = 88 volts
Check outlet with circuit analyzer for correct polarity and grounding.
All timers come with 1 year limited warranty, in this case it will be through seller because first alert does not show timers on their website.
Don't buy First Alert products.
They are generally cheaply made promotional grade timers.
I recommend Intermatic HB61RC or Woods 49103 or Intermatic HB65R because their products are good, and warranty policy is direct from company.

How do i set this time to come on and go off daily


I believe the First Alert timer is same as GE 15151 vacation timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#vacation

If this is not your timer, then add a comment.
Also look at Woods timers on link below to help identify timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html

A vacation timer turns on-and-off randomly to give the appearance that somebody is home
This timer cannot be set for daily on-off schedule.

GE markets a number of timers for daily repeat programming:
When buying a timer, note that some are for 2-prong plugs and some for 3-prong plugs

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002HEY300/?tag=picc-20

Woods makes daily timers and a weekly timer

I have a Tork 806A timer, but no instructions on how to set the on/off cycles.


Tork 806A: There are 6 outlets. Bottom two outlets are always on. Top four outlets controlled by timer all four outlets turn on and off at same time.

Load: Total load on all 6 plugs cannot exceed 1500 Watts, which is typical for 15A circuits. Indoor wall plugs are 15A. Don't add more load to timer than you would put on ordinary wall plug.

Set Time: Rotate dial clockwise to set time. On face of dial, Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} push tabs down to turn on loads, pull them up to turn off loads.

Reset: Timer has reset button in top left corner.
