The timer will turn on at the correct time, and then does not shut off at all. Any suggestions? I have tried resetting

A conflict in programming, or program overlap will cause timer to ignore programs. Write out a schedule before programming.

If you reset and re-programmed timer, that is the final answer for the EJ500 and ST01C intermatic battery-operated timers.

The timer comes with a 1 year limited warranty. It doesn't last forever.

If timer is old, maybe it's time for a new one.
If timer is new, then take it back

HI,I installed a GE digital timer model 15313 about two years ago.Now cannot turn on or off manually or program it. But it does turn on and off the times I programed the last. Thanks

Try reset and reprogram
If functionality is not restored, then replace timer.
Note also the load rating for each timer.
If you are operating above or outside the load parameters for timer, then timer might not function correctly or function as long as expected.
This timer, and most timers have 1 year warranty.

Suggest replacing with 5-year warranty Ei600
Can operate any load value, LED fluorescent incandescent motor
Has dawn-dusk or programmable mode

My parafon 4001-0 is coming on at the wrong time..i have one set of trippers and they are correctly, and now have turned off the breaker to shut the lgihts off. I don't know what to do

Is the dial rotating and keeping good time?
Are the X2772 trippers worn down?
Does the manual override lever turn load on-off.

You can buy replacement trippers online.
Otherwise if the clock dial is slow, then clock motor is bad, and you need to replace timer.

Replace the 4001-1 120Volt timer with Intermatic T101 timer.
Crossover wiring is as follows.
Paragon terminal 1 => Intermatic 1
Paragon 2 => Intermatic 2
Paragon 3 => Intermatic A
Intermatic timers are easily repairable and adaptable for various voltages and different countries by changing clock motors

Just installed a in-wall digital timer model 59018 and when we try to program it when we hit the clock button the unit shuts off so we are unable to set the time (or anything)

Woods 59018 single-pole 7-day 7-program timer, color white:

I test timers and 3-5% arrive defective, and they never work. Some stop working within 1 year, and some last quite a while.
Timers are affected by line interference and polarity issues. So wiring in home has to be correct before timer will operate as expected.
Timer has to be installed correctly with each wire correctly connected.
Press manual override button and see if lights turn on-off. This will indicate if your timer is wired correctly. If lights do not turn on-off with manual override, the open link above for wiring instructions.
To begin programming, reset timer by pushing in the round reset button with toothpick or paper clip.
12:00 am Mon should display.
If the above items are all correct, then defective timer is suspect.
If you try multiple timers, and each timer has same problem, then line interference or bad wiring is suspect, or you are buying from somebody who has a bad batch of timers.
Try wiring same timer at neighbor's house and see if it works there.

Even though the times are all set correctly, and it is on AUTO mode, the timer automatically turns itself to OFF after one cycle. So say i have the timer set from 1-1:15 and from 2-2:15, it always goes...

look at your manual, and then add a comment with brand and model number of timer.
Describe timer in detail and I will find a manual that matches your product and read it alongside you.

I test timers, some arrive defective, some go bad after a few months, most have 1 year limited warranty. Some timers suggest resetting timer when problems occur. Some timers have reset button, other timers have to be unplugged, other timers require you to hold on-off button while pushing reset button.

My Luxor LUX-19-822-COB Turns itself on in the morning, probably to update and does not shut down. Its left for hours but does not shut down

Please see that the Auto Timer is corrected . Remove the power off the TV and keep aside so that it will reset. Now check for the timer set up. You can correct this settings by checking with the menu - timer settings.

Brand new Woods Timer (Model 59730) turns on/off correctly, but completely stops during "off" hours every day. When I reset the current time, it runs for about 8-10 hours, then stops. Returned...

It seems odd that you'd get two defective timers.
I bought one of these timers from Home Depot under the GE brand and the dial rotates correctly as time passes.
Woods 59730/ GE 15107 timer is a mechanical timer, so circuit problems should not affect clock motor.
On electronic timers, if circuit is not clean (circuit has ground fault), then timers don't last long and do peculiar things.

My suggestion is to try timer on indoor plug, on a different circuit breaker, for 1 day and see if it keeps running.
This will tell you if outdoor plug might have a loose wire, and that electricity is getting cut off.

Timer quits shutting the lights off and time flashes 12:00AM

Intermatic is a reliable mfg. if you have a it wired to directly to a light and only a light, you most likely have a defective timer. Bring it back and purchase a rotary timer with on-off switch. more reliable. I too installed the same type of timer and went through 3 before installing intermatics rotary timer/switch.
