-I think your outdoor plug is connected to GFI plug in bathroom or kitchen >>> check reset on GFI.
-Next, plug your hair dryer into same outdoor plug to see if plug has electricity >>> electrical plugs outside wear out quicker, and get loose wires.
-Move timer cord to the other plug
-I don't know if a bit of WD 40 would help or not .... couldn't hurt to spry some on the pins at this point ...UNPLUG timer because WD is very flammable...
-Tips from manual mention checking for burned out bulbs ... I've seen that mentioned other places and don't know if bulb problems shorten life of low-volt transformer inside the box.
-I worked with timers for years, and never seen replacement clocks or transformers for Malibu-type timers
-Timers located outside get damp and dirty ... these things cause small gears inside timers to oxidize and clog so they don't work after a while ... again, a bit of WD-40 might help

Tips copied from manual:
• Make sure power pack is plugged in. Is outlet working?
• Turn manual ON/OFF switch to "ON" or rotate dial so "ON" tripper passes time line indicator.
• Is lamp burned out? Use another lamp to test.
NOTE: This lighting system is designed to last many years under normal conditions. However, lamps eventually burn out and operating with one lamp out can shorten the life of the others. IT IS IMPORTANT TO REPLACE BURNED OUT LAMPS PROMPTLY.
Conditions beyond your control such as abnormally high household voltage due to poor utility voltage regulation will also affect lamp life.

The timer has 1 year warranty.

Need to set the timer properly. No instructions to follow. Want lights to come on at 6PM and off at 6AM. the timer has red and black pegs on the timer, HEL:P


Experiment with the timer.
Hook up the lights and timer. And read resource link below.
Put the trippers on the dial. Put red at 6pm and black at 6am.
Then manually rotate the dial two revolutions.
Turn the override knob to different setting, and then manually rotate the dial two revolutions.
Watch what the lights do as you rotate timer dial.
Then rotate dial two revolutions until current time lines up with stationary arrowhead located on inner dial.
The clock motor located inside timer rotates the dial, and trippers move small switch that turns lights on-and-off.

How temp. disable this timer, without loosing program


You posted under Paragon 42013-20 240Volt indoor-outdoor mechanical timer.
The 'program' is how you set pins on the dial.
Pins cause electrical switch to turn ON-OFF

http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#42000
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Paragon-42000-sell-sheet.pdf

For example if you disconnect electricity to this unit.
Clock dial stops rotating, but pins are not changed.
When electricity is connected again, manually rotate clock dial until current time lines up with red pointer.

Mary Ann:

It appears that it will start flashing when you move from off to on. Here are the directions from the web site.

Move the control lever to the OFF-CLEAR position for about

20 seconds. The red indicator light will go off and any previous

time settings will be cleared from memory.

Move the control lever to the ON position. The Red indicator

light will start flashing.

Rotate the time dial clockwise at least one click, stopping at

the half hour nearest to the present time.

NOTE: During programming, be careful not to press the

dial while turning it. If you press the dial, you will accidentally

set a wrong time.

Press the dial once to set the present time. The Red indicator

light will go off.

Rotate the time dial clockwise to the first desired ON time.

The Red light will pulse momentarily with each click.

Press the dial once to enter the ON time. The light controlled

by the switch timer will turn ON.

Rotate the time dial clockwise to the desired OFF time.

The clock motor has gotten weak and is now overheating, and will soon stop turning. There are no replacement clock motors for ML series power packs.
