Question about Hardware & Accessories

The Woods indoor timer I purchased for my barn doesn't work . I have tried in the house and it does work. Does this timer work with appliances without a switch ? In the barn we use extension cords for our lamps. Could that make a difference?

Most of the plug-in wall timer manuals mention that they don't work with extension cords.
I assume this has to do with the rechargeable battery.
A work-around would be to buy the Woods, or GE or Utilitec in-wall timer where the clock is powered by the electric circuit and not a battery.
The timer takes the place of a wall switch.
And then wire the timer circuit to a wall receptacle.
Of course this would take wiring.
The following page shows a variety of in-wall timers.

Lost instruction for operation of woods indoor digital 24 hour timer (59203)


1) Copy following link for possible manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#Oval

2) Don't forget to reset timer to clear traces of prior programming.
Timer has internal rechargeable battery that eventually gives out, rendering timer useless.
Timer has 1 year limited warranty through Coleman.

3) Suggested replacement timer: Woods 59009, 59008, 59007.
Two prong and 3-prong outlets, rated for CFL LED incandescent etc
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#50009

4) Or buy timer locally for ez return if timer does not work.

5) Jan 2013: Best brands for warranty support are probably Woods, Intermatic, GE, Tork, Sylvania, Leviton.
Promotional-grade timers from First Alert, Timex, Brinks, Stanley-Westinghouse, Utilitec etc may not have clear on-line warranty support.

I'm using the woods 59200 mechanical timer to automatically open and close a chicken coop door. I can't for the life of me figure out how to set it. Help!


Woods 59202 is 7-day analog VACATION timer and cannot be set.
Vacation timers are preset to turn on-and-off at random times so it looks like somebody is home when you are away.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59202

You might want the 59201 analog timer which can be set for on-off times over 24-hour period. Minimum on-off is 15 minutes.
http://www.amazon.com/Woods-59201-Appliance-Grounded-3-Prong/dp/B001Q9EFTQ

If you need a 7-day timer, buy a programmable instead of analog. Wooods 59377 or Intermatic DT630 heavy duty
http://www.amazon.com/Woods-59377-Digital-Appliance-Settings/dp/B000IKQRTU

If you have analog plug-in timer, open following link to see how to set timers:

I am considering purchasing a Woods timer to connect my dehumidifier to so that I can just run it for approx. 3 hours per day. I have a three prong electrical plug on the dehumidifier. Which timer would...


I suggest 120Volt HB113C Intermatic appliance timer for heavy motor loads like dehumidifier:
http://www.smarthome.com/25071/Intermatic-HB113C-120V-20A-Heavy-Duty-Mechanical-Appliance-Timer/p.aspx
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#appliance

Dehumidifier has watt rating on nameplate.
Dehudifier has a compressor or motor load.
Many timers today are not rated for 1500Watt and 1800Watt motor load of dehumidifier.
For example Woods 59377 timer can handle 1875 watts, but timer is for incandescent only.
Woods 59366 timer is rated incandescent only. Your motor might burn up timer and be a fire hazard.

Most of the plug-in digital-programmable timers have rechargeable battery.
Some have a AAA battery that is replaceable, but most do not.
59203 has rechargeable battery.
Battery is not replaceable.

Plug timer into wall for 1/2-1 hour.
If display does not show, then battery did not recharge.
Either timer is broken or wall outlet does not have electricity

My 24 digital timer its not working! isnt there anyway to reset? it doesnt show anything on the screen!! why?


If plug-in timer does not display, then
1) Reset button has tripped > push reset with paper clip
2) power is off > plug something else in receptacle to check receptacle
3) timer is loose in receptacle > unplug timer, spread prongs a bit, and plug back in
4) timer has gone bad.

Except for a few Woods and Intermatic outdoor timers, plug-in timers have internal rechargeable battery. Battery is not replaceable so when battery goes bad, the timer is bad.

See other Woods plug-in timers:

59203 plug-in timer at Amazon for $12
http://www.amazon.com/Woods-59203-Digital-Appliance-Repeats/dp/B001Q9EFU0

If you buy a timer, save the instructions like gold so you don't have to write fixya next year looking for instruction that nobody can find.
