Question about Intermatic Programmable 24 Wall Switch Timer Ej351c

I have the EJ351 model and when it is programmed the lights come on at the desired time; but it never turns the lights off. Manually it works fine and turns the lights on and off.

See the manual

I think you forgot to set the OFF time that corresponds with the ON time, or your on-off times conflict with each other

Make a chart of you on off times

Clear programming
After setting present time,
Rotate dial clockwise to first ON time, push button in to set ON time
Rotate dial counterclockwise to first OFF time, push button to set OFF time

Repeat this up to 8 times >>> but don't overlap your ON-OFFs

EJ351 is programmed to work. In the on position the light it controls is on properly. in the automatic off position the light is on at approximately half intensity. When the manual control is in the o


This timer is rated for incandescent light bulb only.
With 40 watt minimum.
With 100' maximum distance between bulb and timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#ej351

EJ351 is not rated for CFL bulbs (or motors etc).
CFL bulbs are considered inductive loads (same as motors), while incandescent bulb is resistive load (same as a heating element).
Both types of loads use electricity differently.
Programmable wall timers are not ordinary on-off switch... unless you use the override switch.
... instead timers control electricity with electronic circuit board.
So when the manufacturer designs the electronics inside the timer, the design must anticipate how the electricity is used by the load.
Older designs like EJ351, and some modern timers, are not rated for CFL.
... however most newer timer designs are rated for both resistive and inductive loads.
Always read the specification sheet for load rating before installing programmable timer.

My EJ351 programmable timer has work perfectly since 2004. A few days ago the red light just started to continuously flash. I turn it off to rest and regrogram but no luck, the indicator light still...


What is amazing is that you know the year of purchase, AND remember how to set the timer.

1) Try turning off circuit breaker and see if timer resets.
2) Buy cheap circuit analyzer and plug into outlet on same breaker and see if line is clean.
3) EJ351 has limited 1 year warranty.
I test timers: usually when in-wall timer goes bad, it needs to be replaced.
There are no repair parts.

We have the intermatic timer Model EJ351 and when I go to set the timer at the beginning it does not flash. It is when I start from off to on. Mary Ann


Mary Ann:

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

Gary




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.

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

by the switch timer will turn OFF.

Repeat Steps 5-8 for each additional ON/OFF setting.

Continue to rotate the time dial until the Red indicator light

comes ON and stays ON, indicating that the switch timer is in

AUTOMATIC mode.

I have a intermatic ej351 in my garage to turn the outside coach lights on and off. I made the mistake of putting some 10 year bulbs in the coach lights and now the red light on the timer just flashes...


I answer questions for free.
I specialize in timers and electrical devices

Below is the manual for the EJ351
http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/files/intermatic/products/instructions/timers/ej351c%20-%20english.ashx
The red light is a good indicator of the EJ351 timer.
The manuals says that you can clear all programming by moving control lever to OFF-CLEAR position for 20 seconds.
After programs are cleared, the red light will turn off.
Then move control lever to ON position, and then red indicator light will start flashing.
So the problem may be that the timer programs were accidentally cleared.
Use the instruction manual to re-program your timer.
Add a comment if you need more assistance, and I will help.

I have the Sentry - timer for my outside lights. One dial is for pm and one for am. The lights are not going on when I put the dial on 7:30 pm. I have to manually turn them on and then off in the morning,


Ginger,

It sounds like an older Intermatic timer
Does your timer look similar to this timer? EJ351
Here are the instructions for this timer:
Usually if the timer is still made, I can find a manual and piece together a solution... but I don't know this timer, and if it is malfunctioning ....

It may be time for a new timer > the EJ351 is inexpensive, simple to install (just 2 wires) and simple to program >>> one knob controls both AM-PM.

1) Use this procedure to automatically program, letting switch timer "record" ON/OFF activities over 24-hour period.
-Move control lever to OFF-CLEAR for about
20 seconds. Red indicator light goes off and previous
time settings are cleared.
-Move control lever to ON position. Red indicator
light starts flashing.
-At 6:30pm, manually press dial 'on' >>> then at 1:00am manually press dial 'off'
-At the end of 24-hour period, switch timer is programmed and Red indicator light will stay ON, indicating
switch timer is in AUTOMATIC mode.

Manual override no longer turns lights on/off


This sounds wrong. Normally Red would go to Live, Black to Neutral and White would go to the light but without more details of the model it's a guess
