Do you have the screw on trip pieces? They look like little arrows with a thumb screw on them. Some of them should say On, some Off Place the on trips over the time you want the lights to com on vice versa for off. To set the time pull out on the yellow time wheel and rotate until the arrow that is pointing down is over the current time. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: How to set start time on timer raindrip r672c

The start time on these style of timers is whenever you set it. So if you want it to run at night it needs to be set at night, e.g. turn to off/reset, then at 10pm go set to the freq. and duration desired, then it will run at 10pm. Also note this timer waits a full cycle to run the first time after it is set, e.g. if today you set it to run weekly, the first time will be next week.

I cannot program the "Off" time on my GE smart digital timer model 15071

Copy following link to identify timer:

GE 15071/ manufactured Tork SS720
Reset timer, and try again.
Push and hold reset button with paper clip or toothpick for 3-5 seconds.
Buy new timer at Home Depot and return defect with new receipt.
Otherwise instruction manual is straightforward, and would not accept ON time unless wired correctly.

Review ge 15312 settings

Copy following link to identify timer, download manual and link to detailed wiring diagrams.

This timer has too many buttons, and programming steps are seriously layered. I think they were trying add programming options, and to avoid confusion found with other brands dawn-dusk timer programming, by adding confusing options and issuing a manual with tiny print.
Look on page 1 of manual on right side, just above 'random security options' heading: Manual says you can use + - buttons to scroll through programs.
OR: Press set-up button twice and P1 ON will display: Display should also display selected setting.
Press set-up again to see P1 OFF, etc
OR: Press set-up twice, and press Enter once.

Press auto button to exit programming, and current time should display.

Need instructions to set time for 8 outlet power Strip timer Utilitech

Copy following link to identify power strip timer:

Zilla, Utilitec, GE strip timers use basically the same format for programming.
For each ON time, there has to be a corresponding OFF time, and days for On and Off times cannot conflict.
Best guess: you have a conflict or incomplete on-off program.

With Zilla timer, there is added level of complexity since the ON-OFFs are set for different day and night outlets.

Add a comment with the exact timer model number so expert can read the manual alongside you.

Ge smart timer-won't work after I changed off/time-no voltage to light

Hello Terry. Which GE digital timer do you have?
Copy following link to identify timer, and download manual.

Reset timer using reset button.
If timer has no voltage, then check outlet.
Check circuit breaker.
Check that light bulb is good.
If timer is plug-in type, then test outlet with circuit analyzer. Try timer in different outlet with different light.

SunSmart 15312 - timer has power and will turn lights on/off manually but will not turn on/off automatically after setting program.

Sun Smart is new GE timer.

There is no repair for defective timer, except buy another at Home Depot and return defect in new package.
When I bought 15312 timer for testing, I found many packages at Home Depot were taped together as if people returned the timer. The large aluminum fin shows that timer is expected to get warm.
When testing the timer, the door stuck, and the timer seemed cheaply made. Intermatic brand timers are more robust at this time.
The instruction manual is not clearly written as could be, and timer requires a lot of button pushes for each setting.

Because the instruction manual is complex, requiring multiple button pushes for each setting, I suggest writing out the steps to make sure nothing is skipped over.

If lights turn on-off with override, then timer should be wired correctly.
Be sure to reset timer before programming.
Press setup button twice to begin programming.
Check programming for conflicts and overlaps that will cause timer not to function as expected.
For example selecting days of week. If program1 ON says turn on at 7:00 pm all days of week, and program1 OFF says off at 9:00 pm Tuesday.
Another point of confusion is Dawn-Dusk-Time. If you want timer to turn ON at 7:00, then select Time.

I can set the date & time and sunrise and sunset; however, the instructions to program are obscure to me. I want it to come on at dusk and go off at a set time.

1) Question posted under ST01C
Open following link for ST01C instructions with programming illustrations, plus wiring illustrations and battery information.

2) The ST01C cannot be set for on-at-dusk and off-at-programmed-time.

3) If you have different timer than shown above, then add a comment with description of timer buttons for possible identification.

4) I have not tested the following timer, and it may be same as all other in-wall timers, but it is possible that the new GE 15312 sun-smart timer can be set for on-at-dusk and off-at-programmed-time. BUT I am only reading the instruction manual for a new product, before people write the company and then the manual gets changed.
Wiring for this timer is more complicated that ST01C

5) There are numerous outdoor plug-in type timers that offer on-at-dusk, and then off 2 4 6 8 hours later.

Have set the timer to come on at the same time every day and off at the same time every day but when I put it Auto mode does not turn on. What step am I missing

You posted under GE dial-type power strip timer.
GE has 2 different models: 57698 & 15090
15090 has instruction manual, and 57698 doesn't.

GE also makes 15077 digital power strip timer:
The digital power strip has Auto mode.

1) If programming has overlaps, or if programs are set for conflicting days, then timer will not operate as expected. Review programming steps by pressing PROG button.

2) If current time is not set, then programs will not operate. Press and HOLD clock button while setting current time.

3) I test timers, and sometimes manuals are confusing so I write out the steps to make sure I understand correctly.

4) It is possible that timer is defective.

I have a GE smart timer 15086 I followed the instruction and the light blinks when you turn it on. Please help

I test timers, and no damage is done.

Sounds like you wired red and white wires together, or installed timer in place of 3-way switch.
15086 will not replace a 3-way switch.
For example, when 2 switches control hallway light, that is 3-way.
Link above has list of timers that replace 3-way switch.

How to wire 15071, 15086, 15265, 15266 timers:
1) Switch has 2 insulated wires. Take switch wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire. Choose either one for now.
2) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white to these wires. This will power timer electronics.
3) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground, along with timer-green wire.
4) Turn on electricity, and push ON-OFF button located in each corner. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.
