The timer has 8 programs that will run. This will give 4 ON/OFF cycles if all are used. Set program 1 as the ON time, program 2 as the OFF time. Use each odd program # as the ON time and each even program # as the off time. Do this in PROGRAM mode then switch to RUN with the upper switch set to TIMER to actually start the program running. ON will turn it ON during the OFF cycle and OFF will turn it OFF during the ON cycle.

Timer programs disappear on my Brinks Digital Timer 44-1041. I believe home power failures are the cause but I'm not sure.


Look at electrical rating of timer to make sure it matches the air conditioner.
Often an air conditioner is too heavy a load for ordinary programmable timer... even if timer is rated for inductive load,,, because motor pulls a lot of initial amps that eventually overheat timers.

-Suggest buying another or the same timer, and using intermediate relay ... like a solid state relay... or miniature relay... and so the timer turns on the relay, and the relay handles the high amp switching ... and this means the timer lasts longer
http://waterheatertimer.org/H230A.html#solid


-Or buy 17 program CN series timer, and use relay or contactor
http://waterheatertimer.org/Programmable.html#PB

-Or buy several of the Brinks timers and replace when they go bad.

-Also consider surge protection... because simple power outage will blow out electronic circuit boards. Check household grounding also.

I need a wiring diagram for an intermatic timer model et70215c


Add a comment and say what voltage you are working with and what you are controlling with timer. Example wiring:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Intermatic-et70215cr-wiring-900.jpg

ET70215C timer is a 2-channel timer that can be wired MANY different ways, to control multiple voltages in different ways.
Each channel can be programmed separately to control 2 different loads with different schedules for each load.

Clock terminals are 1 and 2, and default clock voltage is 120Volts, but can be set for 208, 240 or 277Volts.

The switching terminals 3 4 5 6 7 8 are 'dry.' Max load rating is 20 amps per terminal
Dry terminals receive no power when voltage is applied to clock terminals 1 and 2.
This lets you to have 120Volt clock, but control 240Volt circuit with one of the channels, and 24volt with other channel.
Or you can jumper from the clock terminals and put power to terminals 3 and 6 as shown in illustration above.
The timer ALSO has NO and NC terminals that reverse the circuit each time the program turns the switch on-and-off. So when timer program is OFF then power travels from terminal 3 to terminal 5. When program is ON, power travels from terminal 3 to terminal 4.

I have a Utilitech In Wall Digital Timer Lowes Item #: 141224 | Model #: LW60418, purchased from Lowes. I've lost the instructions and can't figure out how to set the timer after a power...


Open following link for Utilitec timer manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-LW60418.html

This timer should have a back-up capacitor so that programming is kept in memory during power outage.
Power outage is known cause of timer failure. When power turns on, the surge knocks out electronics.
People writing to fixya report electronic timers and electronic water heater controls stop working after power outage. Probably many other electronic devices are affected too, but that would be out of my specialty.
Troubleshoot says 'in case of operational failure, press reset button to clear all settings and restart.'
If timer has failed, buy another from Lowes and return defect in new package.

How do I set in Automatic mode, seems to only work manually since loss of power?


1) Power outage is major cause of timer failure. Power surge occurs when power is restored, and electronics are susceptible to surge. This includes water softerer, treadmill, electronic water heater, timers, etc.
Timers should be unplugged when power goes off.
Of all timers on market today, only one instruction manual says to unplug timer with power loss. However many people write fixya saying their timer, and electronic water heater control etc stopped functioning after power loss. Probably other products have same problem, but I work with timers and water heaters and see only that slice of the world.

2) Question posted under Woods 59377.
Several timers look identical or similar.
59377 timer has non-replaceable rechargeable battery, some similar timers have AA battery.
If timer has battery, change battery.
Then reset timer to restore functionality. Press reset button for a few seconds with paper clip.

3) If timer function does not restore after reset, then timer is bad.
Buy similar timer at Lowes or Target, and return defective timer in new package.

4) If function is restored, then re-program timer

Outdoor light timer by Intermatic in house when we bought it. Trying to program it after changing batteries, but there are no directions for it. how would I get some instructions for it?


1) Model number is unknown.

2) You have outdoor programmable Intermatic timer, and replaced battery.

3) Open following link to help identify timer and download possible manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#hb88

4) If timer does not show on link above, add a comment with clear description of timer and buttons for possible identification and manual.

5) Most battery operated timers require 'reset' after battery change.
Manuals usually say, the battery is replaced and programs remain intact, and then current time has to be set again.
In typical situation however, most timers lose functionality with battery change. That's why timer is reset, and then reprogrammed.

6) If functionality is not restored after battery change and reset, then timer has gone bad.

7) Newer Intermatic timers have 'lifetime' warranty against workmanship defect.
Older timers have 1 year warranty.

8) Electronic timers, low voltage power packs, plus electronic water heaters, and electronic water softeners and treadmills etc are each susceptible to power surge from nearby lightning and also from simple power outage.
Not always necessary, but safest to unplug outdoor timer during storm event and with circuit breaker trip, or power outage. Plug back in after power is restored or storm is over. This is true also if timer is on GFCI, and breaker trips. Unplug timer and then reset GFCI.
Add a whole house surge protector to main breaker panel. This gives 1-time protection from surge event.

I misplaced my instructions for my timer and need to re-set it after a power outage. Can you please send me the instructions? Thanks.


Question posted under Intermatic ST01C, but Timer is not 100% identified since ST01C is battery powered, and should not lose programming or stop working with ordinary power outage.
Most digital timers have a battery or capacitor back-up for power outage.
Add a comment with description of timer buttons, or open link below to see most brands of in-wall timer.

Open following link for to identify Intermatic ST01C and Ei600 and download instructions:
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#battery
ST01C timer has a battery backup. Power outage will NOT cause battery-powered display to fail, but power outage and power surge can cause any electronic timer to fail.
So either the battery went dead, or power surge ruined timer, or you don't have ST01C timer.

If ST01c display is not showing, then replace battery and then reprogram current time -or- manually re-set timer and then reprogram timer.

Hi I have decora 24 hour programmable timer 6124h. Its display seems to be working just fine and I can change the settings on this. But its not turning the load on. Any idea? Much appreciate the help on...


I don't have repair for defective timer.
Check wire nut connection going to load.
Confirm that load is operable and turned on.
See if timer is producing output on blue wire.
Try timer in place of a different switch to see if problem is load or wire going to load, or if timer is defective.
Make sure there are both ON and OFF times programmed.

Check wiring:
Timer blue wire to load.
Timer black wire to hot.
Timer white wire to neutral.
Green to ground.

I have completed the setup of my Day-Timer Mwave Tx12626x Timex Electronic 7 Day Timer. I turned on my television, then plugged it from the outlet, then plugged it into the timer. The TV will not turn on...


Open following link to identify your timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#Timex

1) Don't expect the timer to turn on the TV picture.
I have my TV plugged into power strip.
Each night the power strip is off. When power strip resumes next day, the TV is READY to be turned on with the remote control. The picture does not pop up when the power strip goes on.
Same is true for timer.
Try your power strip and see if picture turns on after power strip is turned off-on.
Timer will work same as on-off switch on power strip.

2) Is the power strip interfering with timer?
Plug timer directly into wall outlet and see what happens.
Add a comment and let others know what happened.

3) Battery: Timer requires 2-hours for initial battery charge.
Battery back-up protects programs when power is off.
I don't know if battery is made for repeated on-offs if you turn off power strip each night.
These batteries are not replaceable however timer has 1 year limited warranty.

4) Plug lamp into timer and see if timer operates lamp. This will say if TV electronics are interfering with timer operation.

5) Load: This timer says it is for appliances, which implies it should be rated typical 15A 1800 watt

My intermatic pool tmer will not set time or let me auto. turn to on so I can't filter or backwash pool


Problem points to electric power.

1) For best possible free answer, please add a comment and give model number that shows inside timer door.
This will give expert access exact manual for the equipment you have, and show what voltage you are working with.

2) You can also review Intermatic pool timer sell sheet, and pool timer site to help identify product:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Pool-and-spa-catalog.pdf
http://www.poolandspacontrols.com/products.aspx

3) If you have mechanical dial timer, see if manual override works.
And then check electric power.
Check circuit breaker.
Check if manual override works.

4) If you have P1353 digital electronic timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/P1353ME-digital-time-clock-mechanism.jpg
P1353 digital electronic timers have auto setting.
Check programming.
Programming for P1353 is complicated, and longer than space allowed for free answer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Intermatic-P1353-manual.pdf
Programming starts on page 25, and you can add a comment about any specific part of manual that is confusing.
