Yellow outlets are controlled for 12 hours (approx).
Your schedule is 8 hours.
To solve problem: The timer does not know what time it is until you set current time. So set current time so your 8 hour schedule falls within the 'daytime' hours.

I have the timer set, all 7 cycles to come on at 6am go off at 6pm. set and checked. put mode on auto but light did not come on. it only came on when set on the on mode. please help, thank you


You are having problem programming zilla digital power strip timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#zilla

Either timer is defective, or programming has conflicts that cause timer to ignore programming, or blue-yellow outlets are not understood, or combination of these problems.

Zilla yellow outlets are for daytime hours.
Blue outlets for nighttime.
The instruction manual does NOT specify what hours are for daytime. 6 am to 6 pm? Or 12 am to 12pm?
The zilla analog timer divides day and night at 12 and 12.

If digital timer is also 12 and 12, then you cannot set ON at 5:59am and OFF at 5:59pm without fudging the current time setting. For example offset current time by exactly 6 hours.

Open following link for Zilla timers
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#zilla

Zilla timers are unique for home-type timers.
They are two-channel timers, which means that timer has 2 independent programs.
In the case of Zilla, 1 program controls yellow outlets for daytime hours (6am to 6pm). Once daytime hours are over, the yellow outlets are OFF.
The other program controls blue outlets for nighttime hours (6pm to 6am). Once nighttime hours are over, the blue outlets are OFF.

So if you have a light for example, and light is plugged into yellow outlet, then you can program light to turn on-off during the daytime hours only. You cannot also set a nighttime program for the same light unless you plug light into blue outlet.

Zilla timers are for aquariums, where day and night plays important role in life cycle and activity of different types of aquatic beings.

Add a comment and say exactly which Zilla timer you have, and say what specifically you have done so far, and where you are stuck, and what loads you want to control.

Try moving time back to 7:30 and see if that works.

You posted under dual analog timer.
You can experiment with analog timer by manually rotating the dials using fingers. Unplug all yellow daytime outlets, but but leave blue nighttime outlets plugged-in and then rotate dial.
Try same thing with digital, except you have to wait for hours to pass.

Line noise can affect electronic timers. Use cheap circuit analyzer from home center to check outlets.
Try different load on blue outlets and then yellow outlets to see if specific fan-light-motor is causing problems for timer.
It is also possible that timer is defective.
After discovering exactly what problem is, add a comment here so your work will carry forward to others with same-similar question.

Cant change time on coralife power bar. how do i do this?


It depends on which Zilla product you have.
Resourceful do-it-yourselfer can add a comment after identifying product on following link and downloading manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#zilla

1) Digital timer has to be programmed.
If timer worked correctly before, and stopped working you might need AG13 replacement battery.
Or take battery out for several minutes to reset timer.
If timer will not reset or program with new battery, timer might have gone bad.
You can also use cheap circuit analyzer and check that circuit is clean and not interfering with timer electronics.
Programming manual on link above is best place to start for programming steps, and then add a comment if you are stuck on particular part of manual.

2) Analog timer has segments located on dial.
These segments are lifted up or pushed down to control on-off functions.
You can pull a few segments up and leave others down and then manually rotate dial clockwise to observe when power turns on-off. This will tell you exactly how to set segments.

3) All models of Zilla power strips are 2-channel.
Each have blue and yellow outlets, and each color correspond strictly to day or night.
Daytime outlets are blue.
Nighttime outlets are yellow.

1) View Zilla product and manuals at following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#Zilla

2) Zilla is aquarium timer, and astronomic-type timer, and 2-channel timer, that breaks 24-hour day into strict night and day settings.

3) Manual says: both yellow and blue outlets cannot be on at the same time
Yellow outlets are daytime hours.
Blue outlets nighttime hours.
If you have analog timer, daytime hours show on dial with dark background.

4) You need to plug into both blue and yellow outlets to set times that run continuously from 5am to 11pm.

5) To solve problem might require different timer altogether.
Link posted above shows different Utilitec, Woods, Westek, and GE power strips models that might suit your exact purpose better.

I am having problems setting up coralife aqualight power center


You need to plug them into the two yellow outlets, not the blue ones. The blue outlets are for night lights if you have them. Set the timer for 6 and stop at 12am. If you plug them into the two yellow outlets they should go on at 6 and turn off at 12, however If you also plug something into the blue outlets they will turn on as soon as the yellow outlets turn off, it's sopposed to switch from your day lights to your night moon lights automatically provided you got the moon lights plugged in the blue outlets. Hope this helps....

The yellow outlets are controlled for 12 hours, and you can determine when those hours occur when setting current time.

Timer is set properly, but, the daytime lights never switch off


The timer doesn't know what time it is until you set current time.

If you want timer to control one lamp with both day and night schedules, you have to adjust current time setting so lamp schedule falls within a 12 hour period. If that schedule doesn't fit, then buy a second timer.
