Question about General Electric GE 24-Hour Timer, 2-Pin #15004

I need a plug-in timer that I can turn something ON for 5 minutes every hour. What can you suggest? Henry

1 Answer

You need a 60 minute cycle timer capable of running 12 cycles per hour.
Usually this type of timer is heavier duty for commercial applications like garden irrigation or misting, stock feeding, or cattle barn ventilation. Commercial applications require reliable long-term product with higher price.
Average mass market plug-in timer is lighter duty, and is used for turning on indoor lamp or outdoor christmas lights a few times per day. These timers are inexpensive 'corner store' items priced at 6-15$. There would be no mass market for for a plug-in cycle timer as specific as your requirement.

Intermatic makes a panel-mount digital cycle timer you could wire to short extension cord.

Tork ACT cycle timer is less precise, but could be wired to short extension cord:

I have intermatic TN311 MODEL TIMER IDK HOW 2 WORK I WANT IT TO COME ON AND OFF FOR 15 MIN EVERY HOUR FOR 12 ORS A DAY IS THAT POSSIBLE AND HOW


Open following link to identify TM311 timer:
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-TN311C-Heavy-Grounded-Timer/dp/B00002N5FO

1) First of all, you would need more turquoise 107TN222 ON and red 107TN221 OFF trippers.

2) BUT big problem is that TN311 time dial is divided into half-hour segments, so minimum on-off is probably 1 hour since it takes 2 trippers for on-off cycle, and width of 2 trippers is same width as 1 hour.

3) Open following link for plug-in timers with 15 minute segments shows Woods 49664 & Stanley 31192 & Sylvania SA110
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#49664

4) Notice the 49664 dial, that each hour is represented by 4 segments. This says timer on-off period is 15 minutes.

To set this timer, you would pull up all segments around the dial, and then push down 1 segment for each hour that you want timer to turn on for 15 minutes.

5) TN311 has 3 prong grounded outlet, Woods 49664 has 2-prong outlet.

6) Stanley 31192 timer and Sylvania SA110 have 3-prong grounded outlets and 15 minute intervals.

7) You cannot accomplish 15 minutes intervals for 12 periods a day with programmable digital timer.
Most digital timers allow 1 minute program times, but are limited to 6 or 7 programs, and not the 12 separate on-off periods needed for your project.

How do I program the timer to turn on and off at specified times?


You need to program the timer so it turns on-off at specified times.

But first we need to identify your timer for sure.
Have a look at link below.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59203
If your timer does not show, then add a comment with description of timer.
I have extensive files on timers.

Intermatic DT300, GE 15091, and Woods 59203 are the same timer.

Here are instructions for Woods 59203:
Plug timer in until battery is recharged.
If display will not show, then timer battery needs to be plugged into outlet for 1 hour until internal battery is recharged, or timer is bad, or electric circuit is tripped off, or electric circuit heeds to be tested with circuit analyzer.

Once display shows, then unplug timer for programming.
Set current time:
Press and hold CLOCK button.
Press HOUR and MINUTE to set correct time with am and pm.
Press Day button to set current day.
Release clock button.

Program timer:
Press PROGRAM button until "1 ON" displays. This is program1 ON.
Press MINUTE and HOUR buttons to set ON time for program1
Press DAY button to choose day or group of days for program1 ON

Press PROGRAM button until "1 OFF" displays. This is program1 OFF
Press MINUTE and HOUR buttons to set OFF time for program1
Press DAY button to choose day or group of days for program1 OFF

Press PROGRAM button until "2 ON" displays. This is program2 ON.
Repeat steps above to set ON and OFF time for 5 programs.

When programming is completed, press CLOCK button to exit programming.
Press ON/AUTO/OFF button until Auto displays.

Make sure lamp is turned on.
Make sure bulb is good.

If instructions don't fit your timer, then add a comment with model number or full description and I'll post those instructions.
Also you can take advantage of Fixya phone service where expert speaks with you over the phone for a price.

The hot water recirc pump in my new house was equippped w/ this timer. There was no user manual, but it was set by the installer to run the pump during awake hours and shut it off during sleep hours. ...


1) Open link below so we are talking about same type of household system
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-recirculation-system.html

2) 15 minute interval is misleading.
Pins located on timer dial divide 24-hour day into 15 minute intervals.
You set timer pins and decide which 15 minute intervals you want ON-or-OFF. Do this by moving pins inward or outward with your thumb or ink pen. To check settings, manually rotate timer dial clockwise and listen for pump turning on-off..
Set timer pins for 4 consecutive 15 minute intervals, then timer runs for 1 hour.
After pins are set, then manually rotate dial to set current time.
Dial rotates as time passes, and pins click a lever that turns pump on-off.

3) 5-year Life span. Like all things plumbing, if you have hard water or sand-n-dirt in water lines, then pipes clog. And pumps clog.
Once motor begins to slow down, it overheats and burns out.
Water softener can keep sediment out of lines, but shortens life of water heater.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Clean-sediment-out-of-water-heater.html

4) Real question: do you need a circulation pump? Do you need hot water at your faucet? Can you schedule hot water use, or does recirculation pump have to run several hours per day?
Recirculation pumps causes water heater to run more, the pump consumes 25+ watts depending on pump, and water savings claims of 15,000 gallons per year are fabrication.
Realistic water savings is 700-2000 gallons per year, assuming several folks in the home use water sporadically across a full day, and each time water is used people are waiting for hot water. It also assumes that you never want cold water at the tap and that refrigeration ice maker line prefers hot water to cold.

5) Add a comment for more free help.
Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, fixya expert speaks with you over phone while you work on pump/timer or any do-it-yourself project.
