This manual is a bit confusing because it jumps across steps without telling you.

Look at manual instructions above Fig 11 where it says "Programming ON/OFF event times without astro." This is where your instructions are.

But let's start back at Fig 6. Setting DST
I think the instructions jump from DST at Fig 6 to programming at Fig 11

DST says:
If you want timer to compensate for DST, the display automatically defaults to AUTO.
If you do not want DST, press SET+ or ENTER/NEXT and display reads MANUAL
Then it says: Press MODE+ to go set up ASTRO feature

But you don't want ASTRO

I think this is where you by-pass ASTRO completely by pressing MODE+ until the screen looks like Fig 11 below:

Now you are at programming steps to right of Fig 11:
EVENT1 shows in screen
-Press Day to set days > you keep pressing Day to show M-F, Sat-Sun, or individual days
Then use SET+ and SET- to set ON time for EVENT1

Press ENTER/NEXT to go to EVENT2
EVENT2 is OFF time for EVENT1

Tip: Other intermatic timers ignore all Events that conflict ... so you might make on-off chart before programming

After EVENTs are programmed, press MODE+ to go to AUTO

    Any idea how or if I can get the Intermatic DT27 to turn on at a set time and then turn off at sunrise - and then to turn on at sunset and off at a set time. For example:

    Turn on at 6:00 a.m. and turn off at sunrise
    Turn on at sunset and turn off at midnight

    All I can figure out how to do is get it to turn on at sunset and off at sunrise with the Astro function - but I don't want my lights to be on all night.

    Thanks!

    DT27 doesn't do that. I don't know any 7-day programmable timer that does. Intermatic T51311BC mechanical timer is expensive and can be set in that manner. There are a group of inexpensive outdoor photo-eye plug-in timers that do something similar. Woods 17321, GE15137, Woods 13660, Intermatic HB61RC, Woods Coleman 2001, Utilitec LW61220, Sylvania SA200, GE 57696, Intermatic HB65R, Woods N1506, UPM DT523.http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers...

How do I set the time?


S E T U P
SET UP is performed once during
installation to set the internal CLOCK, ASTRO (sunrise/sunset)
times and HOLIDAY references. After entering and okaying the
ASTRO Zone, the timer will display calculated "center of time
zone" times when prompting for sunrise and sunset entries. You
may OK these, enter actual sunrise/sunset times or enter offset
times for early or late ASTRO operation. Sunrise time must be
before noon; sunset time must be after noon. Sunset must not be
within 5 hours of sunrise. Both sunrise and sunset must be
entered, even if only one is used for switching. If neither is
required, you may skip ahead by pressing HLDY or PROG keys.
(See map pp. 24-25 for details.) Holidays are entered with 2-digit
reference numbers; a chart for recording the date(s) is located on
page 22. Leap years are preset through the year 2094


PROGRAM is used for entering or
changing the switching schedule for loads wired into the time
switch. You can program circuits separately or concurrently. Each
entry affects loads whose Enable switches are in the enable
position at the time of data entry (2 circuit models only). The
time switch is shipped in a 12-hr. AM/PM mode; you can change
to 24-hr. by removing a jumper on the circuit board (see Special
Instructions). It can store a minimum of 400 events, depending
on the data type entered.
The time switch prompts you through SET UP and PROGRAM
with LEDs that advance after each entry. There are five important
points to remember:
1) The RUN/SET switch must be in the SET position to enter,
review or change data.
2) You must press "OK" after each entry, before starting the next.
3) You must press AM or PM after entering time (unless
programming Sunrise and Sunset or in 24-hour mode).
4) When in PROGRAM you must select the loads you want to
control with the Enable switches (2 circuit models only).
5) RUN/SET switch must be returned to RUN position to enable
automatic control and to save changes to data.

These keys are used for most data entry. Note dual functions,
numeric or day specific. Using the day group keys WKDY,
WKND and ALL (for all 7 days) greatly speeds the process.
The keypad keys are only functional when the RUN/SET switch is
in the SET position. Pressing keys when in the RUN position will
cause a message to scroll, explaining the function of that key. Press
any key once to stop any of the scrolling error or help messages


You must press AM or PM after entering time data (except Sunrise
or Sunset) unless in 24-hr. mode. Programming fixed times for
ON and OFF events does not require PULSE, INTVL or ASTRO
keys. Multiple ONs or OFFs can be entered by pressing OK
without programming the alternate OFF or ON. Multiple OFF
times are frequently used to "sweep" off loads which have been
manually switched on after normal occupancy hours.
PULSE and INTVL (Interval) are length-of-time based options.
Maximum Pulse is 127 sec.; minimum is 1 sec. Maximum Interval
is 6 days, 23 hrs., 59 min.; minimum is 1 min. To program Pulses
or Intervals, press the PULSE or INTVL key after entering a Switch
On or Switch Off time; then enter the required duration and press
OK. Note after ON Pulses or Intervals have timed out the load
will be OFF, and after OFF Pulses or Intervals have timed out the
load will be ON, regardless of the load state prior to the start of
the Pulse or Interval. The INTVL and PULSE keys include a
temporary override function with a maximum length of 6 days, 23
hrs. and 59 min. for the interval or 127 seconds for the pulse. To
program an interval or pulse for override, select SET, enable the
circuit, press PROG, press INTVL
or PULSE (without selecting a
day), key in the interval or pulse

DT27 model won't turn on


1) DT27 timer is same as Kichler 15559.
I don't think either product is still available unless another company such as Brinks has taken over the design.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#DT27

2) Change LR44 batteries
And then reset timer by depressing reset button.
Reprogram.
Check light bulb is operable, and lamp switch is ON. Move timer to different outlet.
Check circuit breaker.
Plug in different lamp.
If functionality is not restored, then buy another timer such as Intermatic DT620 with lifetime warranty (shows just above DT27.)

3) Many timers today do not require battery and have internal rechargeable battery instead.
Timer designs change because CFL and LED bulbs are inductive loads, while many older timers were rated only for resistive loads such as incandescent bulbs.

Trying to adjust the preset sunset time on a ET8215C so that I can range beyond the 120 minute limit set at the factory.


ET8215C is Astronomic time piece that can also be programmed for specific on-off time.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Intermatic-et8015c-.pdf
1) You can disable the astronomic function by inserting a jumper shown in manual, and then program individual on-off times.
2) You can extend either DST start-time or end-time by fudging on the current time setting. For example if you want timer to turn off 1 hour after normal sunrise, then set current time 1 hour ahead. Of course this means timer turns on 1 hour later in the evening.
3) You can extend astronomic on-off times slightly by changing astro zone
4) You can set exact astro times, but the default maximum is shown as 120 minutes.

Add a comment and say what you discover to solve the problem.

Yes i have an intermatic timer for my outside lights mounted on my wall inside. it seemed to have stopped working. nothing is on display and i changed the battery


If you have a battery-operated Intermatic timer, then it is the ST01C or EJ500.
The advantage of the battery is simple wiring when you replace a light switch.

http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-st01c.pdf

http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-ej500c-manual.pdf

Both of these timers have troubleshooting in their manuals.
Both timers come with a 1 year warranty.

I have tested the wiring, operation and programming of the Intermatic timers and many other in-wall timers.
If the display does not light up on ST01C or EJ500, then the battery is the only reason.
If the battery is not working, then the timer is broken.
You might try cleaning the battery terminals and connectors located inside the pull-out tray.

These small electrical devices do not have repair parts.
When the timer goes bad, you buy a replacement timer.


You can buy another Intermatic battery-operated timer and keep the simple wiring:
http://www.aplussupply.com/intermatic/timer.htm

You can also buy Aube T-1034 rechargeable-battery-operated timer.
The T-1034 is strictly sunrise-sunset.
The T-1070 is sunrise-sunset -and/or- multi-day programs

The page below explains the Aube
http://waterheatertimer.org/Aube-timers.html

The links below sell the Aube
http://michaelselectric.com/catalog/index.php?manufacturers_id=60
http://www.amazon.com/Aube-Honeywell-TI070-3W-Switch-Programmable/dp/B001QFZ404

T-1034 and T-1070 wiring is slightly different than Intermatic, and you can add a comment and I will help you with any wiring question.

On the sunrise/sunset setting the sun is always dark as if for night. How do i get to the light cycle ?


You posted under ST01C Intermatic timer.
The Intermatic has a battery
If you have another timer, such as the Utilitec, please answer and I will help you with that problem.

Here is the ST01C manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-st01c.pdf

If I understand correctly, you are programming the timer for the first time.
And you want to set timer for sunrise/sunset.

I have a ST01C in my hand right now
Section 6 says you can select astronomic function which is dawn-to-dusk
I notice that when you want to get to the Dusk cycle, you press ON-off button until Dawn shows ... and then press + key and Dusk shows on display

Answer back. These timer manuals are hard to figure out sometimes.

Utilitech self-adjusting wall timer 0192773. I hooked up the timer (4 wires). The automatic modes does not work and will not turn on and off the lights on set times. All it will do is turn lights on and...


http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html

I have been testing the 0192773, and other timers, for wire and program difficulties.
Good news: your timer is wired correctly. This timer will not operated lights with incorrect wiring.

programming steps are long, but same as other programmable timers.
The 0192773 is a 7-day or sunrise/sunset timer

1) Most programmable timers will not 'work as expected' if there is a conflict in programming.
They suggest you make a schedule of times before programming

2) One of the things this timer offers are individual days -or- groups of days > for example weekend only -or- weekdays only -or- all days of week -plus- individual days. For me, it was a bit confusing keeping that straight while programming

3) Each Program has ON time and OFF time
So Program1 ON has to be set same days as Program1 OFF

4) The other difficulty was how fast the display shifted back to current time when I was programming. If I looked at the instructions for a moment, my display would change before I could catch up. So it's possible that an ON or OFF time could be missed easily.

5) Finally, if you are using the timer as a sunrise/sunset, you need to enter Sunrise or Sunset with program1 ON and program1 OFF

I think the problem is in your programs:
You can use paperclip and hold in reset button for a few seconds and start over
Or
You can press PROG button and and re-check and re-set each program.

By the way, when setting current time, I noticed the timer let you chose a year up to the year 2099. I thought that was an optimistic outlook for both operator and timer.

Programming Utilitech Item # 0192773


Go through the normal setup. Year, month, day, time, DST and the location (north, center, south).

Hit program and make sure all events are clear. Program the first (ON) event, press the TIME button and press /- (with the hour segment blinking) until you see the Sun/Moon symbol indicating the sunset time. Press PROG and program the (OFF) event. Press the /- buttons until you see the Sun/Moon symbol indicating the sunrise time.

Hitting resume clears events if you accidentally entered them.

Make sure you display shows AUTO and you're good to go.

I have a utilitech 0192773 self adjusting timer that will not program. Only works with manual on / off switch. How do you adjust to dusk to dawn


Do not go to Utilitech.com; it's a different company. It's actually at place called TheNCC and is in tiny, tiny print at the bottom of the instructions.

Instead, go to:
http://thencc.com/ncc/support_results.asp?criteria=192773&Submit=Go&SearchRun=RunGo

You should find a PDF for the product and then zoom in to be able to read the instructions. I was not able to read instructions that came in packaging.
