Quick answer:
1) Programming steps say 'press clock key to return to current time and day'
2) Use mode button and change between AUTO & RND >> try manual override in each mode
3) Does timer turn lights on-and-off with program, or do they blink too?
4) Swap Black and Red wires
5) Try timer on light in different room, on different circuit breaker
6) Timer might be defective

Longer answer:
Woods 59018 manual does not show troubleshooting steps except 'check wiring; switch Red and Black leads; and/or reset programming'

Seems unlikely you could program timer unless timer is wired correctly ... unless there is a short of some kind.

To review wiring.
Green goes to bare ground wire.
White goes to Neutral white wire (neutral is usually 2 or 3 white wires twisted together and shoved to back of box)
Black must connect to Hot from circuit breaker
Red must connect to Load (light, fan, motor etc)

How to test wiring
:
Disconnect timer and set aside.
Mark each wire
Separate wires in box so they don't touch
Use ordinary tester (you can tape tester leads to wood sticks)
Turn on power
You should have two black wires that were originally connected to switch
Test black wires to bare ground > when tester lights up, that is the Hot wire.
The other black wire goes to Load

Now you want to find the neutral.
Test the Hot black wire to white wires in box.
When tester lights up, that is neutral.

If everything checks out, I guess timer is defective.

I hope I am stating my problem clearly: I just purchased a Woods 59377 indoor timer that I'm about ready to return to the place I purchased it because of the manual override button. What I didn't...


I have 59377 timer in my office.
Here is copy of manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Woods-59377.pdf

What job do want the timer to do?
It sounds like you want a programmable timer at night, and simple on-off switch at day.
Add a comment if answer below misses the mark.

YES, the manual override can be used as on-off switch.
Press manual override until Manual ON or Manual OFF display.

The manual override button has 4 states:
Auto ON, turns lamp ON immediately and programming resumes at next set time.
Auto OFF, turns lamp OFF immediately and programming resumes at next set time.
Manual ON to choose permanent ON.
Manual OFF to choose permanently OFF.

Timer is not identified.
If digital timer does not function as before, try resetting timer and then re-program.
If timer has battery, then change battery and reset timer.
If reset does not restore functionality, then timer has gone bad. Most in-wall timers have 1 year limited warranty.

Below are common 7-day timers, but there are many different brands:

You posted under Woods 7-day timer: except Woods timer does not astronomic dawn dusk function. Woods 7-day is same as Tork 7-day and GE 7-day, and they do not have astronomic function.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Woods-59018-59028.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59028
Reset button is small round button.
Push in reset with toothpick or paper clip.
Then reprogram timer.

If you have Intermatic ST01C or EJ500 battery operated timer: Replace battery, then to reset timer: push-and-hold ON_OFF button, and then push reset button. Keep holding on-off button until display changes. Release on-off button and display will flash 12:00. Then reprogram timer.

If you have Utilitec astronomic timer, then press reset button and reprogram:

Just installed a in-wall digital timer model 59018 and when we try to program it when we hit the clock button the unit shuts off so we are unable to set the time (or anything)


Woods 59018 single-pole 7-day 7-program timer, color white:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59028

I test timers and 3-5% arrive defective, and they never work. Some stop working within 1 year, and some last quite a while.
Timers are affected by line interference and polarity issues. So wiring in home has to be correct before timer will operate as expected.
Timer has to be installed correctly with each wire correctly connected.
Press manual override button and see if lights turn on-off. This will indicate if your timer is wired correctly. If lights do not turn on-off with manual override, the open link above for wiring instructions.
To begin programming, reset timer by pushing in the round reset button with toothpick or paper clip.
12:00 am Mon should display.
If the above items are all correct, then defective timer is suspect.
If you try multiple timers, and each timer has same problem, then line interference or bad wiring is suspect, or you are buying from somebody who has a bad batch of timers.
Try wiring same timer at neighbor's house and see if it works there.

On my Woods 24 Hour Mechanical Heavy Duty Timer (59382) there is a slide switch on upper right of face--set to left, switch is adjacent to a circle with a check mark in it; to the right, it is a vertical...


Switch settings are 'Override' and 'Timer'
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#1702

The manual is unclear which is which.
Pull up a few of the segments located around edge of timer dial.
Segments UP for timer off, segments down for timer ON
Plug timer into wall, and plug lamp into timer.
Lamp is ON and bulb is good.
Move timer switch back and forth to see if lamp turns on.
Manually rotate dial to observe if timer segments are correct for ON-OFF.

Unplug timer and set segments, and rotate dial until current time lines up with black triangle.
Plug timer in.

Wood timer 59108. We do not have manual and don't know how it works.


I don't have 59108 timer listed for Woods.

1) Woods makes 59018 White-colored in-wall digital 7-day timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Woods-59018-59028.pdf

2) Photo that you posted question with is Woods outdoor 59204 or Woods outdoor 49109
These timers have a dial on face of timer.
Rotate dial until current time lines up with arrowhead.
Segments located around edge of dial are used to set times.
Move segments up-down (49109) or in-out (59204) to set on-off times
Move override dial (49109) or override switch (59204) to Timer, or timer ON so timer will follow programming

If above is not your timer, link below shows all Woods timers and manuals to help identify your timer
