Question about Woods Hardware & Accessories
What kind of Woods timer do you have?
Is the dial turning? The dial is the clock. And the clock needs electricity to work, just like alarm clock. If dial is not turning, the wiring is not right.
Does the manual override turn on the lights? Maybe the slider switch set to OFF? Set slider to "Timer" for timer functions to work.
If you have 59017 wall timer, it has dark PM white AM. You rotate dial until correct time lines up with little triangle located on right side of center knob.
There are 48 plastic pins on dial ... when pins are moved out, the lights are off. For timer functions, set slide switch to 'Timer'
Correct wiring is needed for timer to work:
Timer black attaches to Hot wire from breaker box
Timer red attaches to wire going to Load (lights)
Timer white must attach to white Neutral (or if your box has no neutral, connect white to bare ground)
Timer green connects to bare ground
If wiring seems right but dial on front of timer is still not rotating, then reverse Timer red and Timer black and see if that sorts out problem.
If this is wrong Woods timer, please re-post question.

1. To Set Program:
Pull up one tripper
between hour marks
on the 24-hour dial
for each 1/2 hour of
ON time desired. For
example, if timer is to
be ON between 12-2
PM, all four trippers
between those times
must be pulled up.
2. To set time
of day: turn dial
clockwise with the
arrow head pointed
to the correct time.
The dark area
denotes PM and
the white area
Straight out of the manual. Pull up trippers for all of the time that you want the device to run.
Rotate the time of day dial in the direction of the arrows.
The off/on dial will override the timer until it comes around to the on time again then the timer will control.
