Question about Hardware & Accessories

1 Answer

I bought a westek daily timer for a space heater. The issue is that it powers on at the desired time but does not then start to operate and heat- the equivalent of when you plug it in only. I want it to go on 2 hours before I get home from work to heat the place up and not waste electricity during the day then an hour before I get up in the morning. Any suggestions here? I know it's a reach :) Is there such thing as a "double timer" to power up then start a device?

Your question is a bit hard to understand.
You have a plug-in timer.
It's connected to a space heater.
The timer powers ON correctly.
But for some reason the heater does not turn ON?

I think you should check the wattage of your space heater and compare it to the wattage of your timer.
A lot of plug-in timers are pushed to the limit at 1000Watts
Your space heater is 1200W or 1500Watts probably.

Buy an appliance timer to handle the space heater load.
Intermatic HB113C timer handles 2000Watts
It will be safe.
Set two on-off functions per day

Hayward H100ID wont heat water


If the heater is operational, working and the top of the heater is hot, and you do hear the combustion of the gas, see flames in the burner tray area...

.... then your heater is heating the water!

If there are flames in the heater, the heater is normally doing its job. Most people are not aware of the time it takes to see a "Temperature Rise". The average temperature rise is dependent on your heater size, the ambient temperature of the time of day you would like to use your heater, the wind/breeze factor as it goes over your pool surface. Is the pool waters surface covered? etc. All of this is a factor on how quick the temperature will rise. It is possible that you will not feel warm water coming from a return fitting.

Another common mistake some pool owners make is the system is on a timer. And the desire to start the initial warming of the water starts with the flick of the heater switch and then a few hours later the pump turns off and along with it, the heater. The heater will only work, if the pump is on and circulating the water! No circulation, no heat! So if you have a timer, remove the "Off" timer pins and allow the heater to work.

I was wondering if the dual outlets can be program individually? For example, both start a 6am but one end at 8pm and the other one at 10pm. Thanks


No. Woods does not make 2-channel timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#digital
Nor is this feature available through Intermatic wall timers, GE wall timers, Leviton, Swilight, UPM, Tork, Westinghouse, Westek, Utilitec, maplin, Stanley, Brinks, Timex, Kichler, Hagar, First Alert, sylvania, Aube, Honeywell, coleman, HPM, etc etc.
However, you can buy narrow timers like Westek TE22, also similar sold by Brinks... and 2 different timers can plug into same duplex outlet... letting you control 2 different loads from same outlet... by using two timers: usually this type timer is sold as 2-pack
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#Westek
There are also box timers, like Intermatic ET series, that can be programmed for 2-channel operation where same timer controls two different loads, each with different weekly or daily schedule ... Intermatic PE153 offers 3-chanels, and there is one timer, ET90000 that can be programmed for 40+ channels with 4000 set points and 365 day calendar for each channel etc
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#ET-series
Tork also offers multi-channel box timers.

Westek TE06WHB Timer has been plugged in to charge for over 5 hours now and still now LCD display. It won't let me set the clock or program


Some of these timers use actual battery instead of rechargeable battery. Check back of timer for a battery door.

Press the reset button and see if this resolves the issue.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59377

Check outlet polarity using circuit analyzer.
Plug timer into another outlet.
Turn on light switch controlling outlet.
See if a light works on same outlet.
Check circuit breaker.
This timer has 1 year warranty against defects in workmanship.
I suggest always buying timers at local store for ease of possible return.
Lowes and Target sell same/similar timer under different brand name. Buy new timer and return defect in new package.

Honeywell HZ-705.....HELP!!!!


Should have oil in it. I don't think you can refill it. If it has leaked out, it's probably no good. Anyway, here are the instructions.


Press the *power button* once to start the heater on high power, continuous run. If left at this setting, the unit will run continuously on high power (1500 watts, 12.5 amps) and will not shut off until the unit is manually turned off.
Press the *power button* again, to change to low power, continuous run, (900 watts, 7.5 amps) and will not shut off until the unit is manually turned off.

Set temperature:

Press the temp/timer button until the temperature icon blinks. Use the up and down arrows to set the desired temperature.
The temperature icon will stop blinking and the current room temperature will reappear after the desired temperature is set.

The heater will turn off and on to achieve the desired temperature.

Set timer: (auto off)

Press the timer/timer button until the timer icon blinks. The hour display will appear. The auto off icon will also appear.
Use the up and down arrow buttons to set the heater operation time between 1 and 10 hours. This function will activate once the timer icon stops blinking. The heater will automatically turn off whn the times runs out.

Set timer: (auto on)

Press the temp/timer button until the timer icon blinks. The hour display will appear. The auto on icon will also appear.
Use the up and down arrow buttons to set the heater start time between 1 and 10 hours. This function will activate once the timer icon stops blinking.
The heater will automatically turn on when time expires.

Hope this helps!
