Problem with timer on Thomson DTI1000 after power cut

I have owned a Thomson DTI1000 for many years and use the timer function regularly. It is set to switch on, together with my vcr, two times each weekday and this work fantastically until there is a power cut. After a power cut the timed event remains in the box but the date reverts to an old date which means that the box then doesn't switch on at the appointed time. I have version 3.4 of the software. Any ideas please as it is driving me crazy!

Need to set clock on oxo timer

I also own this model, and the manual isn't availble on OXO's site. But this is what I've learned over the years:

To set clock:

  1. Press and hold clock/timer button for 3 seconds (clock icon will appear on left side of screen).
  2. Input time using keypad then quickly press clock/timer button to save.

To set timer:

  1. Press and release clock/timer button.
  2. If necessary, press clear/memory so timer reads all zeroes.
  3. Enter desired time using keypad (to a maximum of 99hrs:99mins:99secs).
  4. Press stop/start to begin countdown.
  5. Pause countdown by pressing stop/start; resume by pressing button again.
  6. When countdown is complete, timer will beep continuously for 30 seconds and display will flash. Timer will then beep every 10 seconds for 10 minutes until the stop/start button is pressed.
  7. Press clock/timer button to return to clock function.

To time activities:

  1. Press and release clock/timer button.
  2. If necessary, press clear/memory so timer reads all zeroes.
  3. Press stop/start and plus (+) sign will appear on right side of screen as timer begins counting up.
  4. Pause count-up by pressing stop/start; resume by pressing button again.
  5. When you're finished timing, press stop/start to end timing function.
  6. Press clock/timer to return to clock function.

I'm looking for a timer to replace the thermostats for 2 furnaces in a riding arena.

1) Yes a spring-wound timer will work.
Woods 59717, Intermatic FD60, etc
There are other models depending on length of time, and color of timer

2) How to wire to 24 volts
24 volt circuit has 2 wires going to load.
Cut one of the wires and then connect cut wire to timer.

3) Buy Woods 59717 or Intermatic FD60 timers at in home improvement.
Both products have 1 year warranty, and both are strong companies.
Spring-wound timers last many years, and set-times are approximate.

Is the sunvic sp2 a 2channel timer please

Yes. It appears the Sunvix SP2 is 2-channel timer.

Two-channel means CH central heat and WH water heater can be programmed separately, and each can have its own timing program.
pg 3

The timer offers pre-programmed options for both CH and WH, which can be used, or program your own schedule. chart pg 5 and steps pg 3

Limitations: both channels operate on same clock time, and dip switch setting. pg 6. So the WH cannot be programmed for 5-2 weekdays-weekends and CH programmed for 24 hour.
As a convenience for varied work schedules, Sometimes people use the 5-2 weekday-weekend option so 2 days of week can have different programming, and then fudge current day setting during the set-current-time step pg2 so the 'weekend days' are actually moved to wedsday-thursday instead of sat-sun.

Option: both CH and WH timer programs can be linked and follow same programming by using copy button. pg 5

Using advance button on either side of timer, pg 3-4, WH and CH timing schedules can be overridden temporarily until next set point is reached. Then regular programming automatically resumes.
If override or Advance button is pushed for either CH or WH, it reverses whatever programming is in effect. On becomes off, or off becomes on. However if CH thermostat is satisfied and room temperature has not fallen below thermostat set point, then override will not turn CH on, but override will turn CH off. Same for WH override: If cylinder thermostat is satisfied with internal water temperature, the water heater will not turn on and heat more water, but the override can turn water cylinder off.

Unit requires Cr2033 lithium button battery. Pg 6. Probably lasts 3-5 years. Programming is protected for 30 days from power outage.
If programming is lost, change battery, the reset timer and reprogram to restore functionality.

How do I turn off completely the intermatic 3 circuit timer P1353ME, not only in between cycles?

Manual for P1353:
Programming instructions for P1353 start page 30

The on-off button is merely an override of existing program, and then programming resumes at next event setting.
I have read this manual looking for a simple way to turn off timer functions so no pool equipment operates, and it appears that you have to turn off circuit breaker.

This is the same as any mechanical timer such as T104 or T101, and is not brand-specific as all mechanical box timers follow same pattern. Mechanical timers have override button, but the timer reverts to regular schedule at next tripper, just as the P1353 does.

Keep in mind that each load on timer can be wired separate from the timer clock. So you can turn off the load wire going to each load, and still have power to clock.
If you cut power to each load, then it is not necessary to reset current time. Programs remain inside timer even if power is completely cut to timer.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.
