I know timers and electrical devices, and have tested most of the brands.
You posted under the Woods 7-day timer 59018 or 59028.
Here is the manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Woods-59018-59028.pdf

There are several programmable timers today that look like Woods, and each brand has different programming.

If you do not have Woods, add a comment and I will walk through programming your brand

1) You have the clock set correctly which implies the wiring is correct. Good job!
2) Programming review:
Each program requires ON time to be set, and then OFF time to be set
For example you set Program1 ON 5:00PM for ALL days.
And then you set Program1 OFF 11PM for ALL days.

3) Programming steps:
Press PROG button until Timer 1 ON appears on display
Use Hour button to set 5 PM
Use MIN button to set :00
Default selects ALL days
(If you want other days, press DAY button until display shows correct block of days)
Press PROG button again to save Program1 ON

4) Now for Program1 OFF

5) To set Program1 Off
Press PROG button until Timer 1 OFF shows in display.
Use Hour button to set 11 PM
Use MIN button to set :00
Default selects ALL days
(If you want other days, press DAY button until display shows correct block of days)
Press PROG button again to save Program1 OFF

6) Program 1ON and Program1 OFF have been set ... so press the CLOCK button to return to current time.
If you want to set another program, press PROG button until Timer 2 ON displays

7) After setting programs, press Clock button so current time shows.

8) The manual shows one more thing ... if you program the timer during the hours 5-11pm, and the timer should be ON during those hours, you have to 'tell' the timer to turn ON by pressing the manual override ... after that the timer will operate normally.

If you need more assistance, add a comment.
If instructions help, give it a 4-thumb

    Your explanations are plainer than Any thing else I have seen! Can I ask a question? I need to turn the device "On" for six to eight minutes at a time. Is there a minimum "On" time interval? Also, the manual says to connect the light black wire to the timer Red wire. What about the light White wire? Connect it to the Line White wire?

    http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers... -Digital timers usually have minimum on-off time of 1 minute. -Shorter durations are not possible because the timer does not have settings for seconds. -The white wire from light connects to white neutral wires inside electrical box and to timer-white wire. -How to wire timer
    1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire.
    2) Switch has 2 wires. Take switch wires and connect to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire. Choose either one for now.
    3) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white to these wires.
    4) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground.
    5) Turn on electricity, and push timer door which is also the ON-OFF button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

How do I program a Woods indoor light timer Model 50009 ?


my timer seems to have same buttons, but not same model. first you have to put in the correct day and time.
next you push the prog button it should be for time to start timer first, then it will ask what day or days to you want it to work they will be flashing at the top of the screen if it is like mine you can pock one day, Mom - Fri, Sat & Sun, or all week, when what you want is flashing press set, now the times should start to flash set hour first and if not sure if it has AM and PM use the 24 hour clock say you want it to come on at 5pm that is 1700 hours off at 11pm that is 2300 hours. after pick hour press set, the mins will blink, pick press set, then the sec, press set so now it should be the come on time. press prog again and it should be the time off now press set, pick days same as above set, hours set, min, set sec set. that should be what you need. I always try it on a lamp that I can set on the kitchen table and play till I know the right sequence. set for it to come on now everyday and stay on for 5 minutes if that works than just do the same thing all over again for the times you actually want, saves waiting to see if it is going to work.
Mine has about 4 different programs that can be set on same timer, I have never got that brave, but I would assume it is just the same procedure on prog 2, 3, or 4. good luck hope it helps

Hi, my broadband cuts out at 11pm everyday. how do i have it on a constant basis? thankyou


Hi there,
This isn't a simple answer without more information:
What kind of broadband are you using? Satellite/Cable/DSL/Other?
Does this happen momentarily (drops off, comes back on) or is it permanent (drops off, stays off until next day)?
Are you using a router in conjuction with your broadband modem? If so, try resetting the router with the reset button on the bottom/back. This will set your router back to manufacture state and you will have to input your settings again. If this doesn't help, consider a replacement router.
Do you live in an apartment building or rural area? Lots of people using the same line can have a major slowdown effect on broadband, especially DSL. This can cause a dropoff of service temporarily.
Do you have a timed line, so that everyday at 11pm it will turn off power?
Is your ISP aware of this issue? Have you called to complain or make a statement about your service?

Erratic timekeeping


Two options.

Option 1) If you are using it to control a motor, heater or fluroescent light (even a new compact fluorescent light) it may not work well. These are meant for turning on/off old fashioned light bulbs.

Option 2) As these old mechanical timers age, the plastic gears inside starts to stick a bit. You can try to lubricate with some silicon spray. Don't use oil because that will swell the plastic and really make everything bind.

You can also find some nice digital models for about $12. Some even ask you for a date so they can adjust for changing dawn/dusk times (very nice features). I have mine come on at dusk and turn off at 11pm every night. It even lets us randomize the 11pm so it turns off between 10:30 and 11:30 so I don't look too predictable.

Please rate me.

-Good luck

I just installed a honeywell 5-2 progammable thermostate.. Everything is hooked up fine and I have my days, hours wake, sleep, leave...etc all set, but when it goes on.. for example, I have it set for...


You didn't include a model number, so it's hard to know for sure - but I'll take a stab at this one. Many of these t-stats have a programmable offset to reduce "hunting". This can be as little as 1 degree or more than 2 degrees.

This means if you set the offset to 1 degree and the room temperature to about 65 degrees, the furnace will heat the room until the t-stat registers a rising temperature of 66 degrees. The furnace shuts off and will not turn on again until the t-stat registers a falling temperature of 64 degrees. The average is 65 degrees, and prevents the furnace from starting and stopping numerous times instead of just once with the 1 degree offset.

You can further reduce the number of furnace start and stops by increasing the offset to 2 degrees. This would work like this when the t-stat is set to 65 degrees and the room is cool:

Room Temp Furnace
63 On
64 On
65 On
66 On
67 On
68 Off

The room is now warm and heat or furnace is off. The room begins to cool like below:

67 Off
66 Off
65 Off
64 Off
63 Off
62 On

With a 1 degree offset, the room temperature varies +/-1 degree (about 2 degrees total). With a 2 degree offset, the temperature about varies +/ -2 degrees (about 4 degrees total).

Also, when the thermostat shut the heat off, the heat that was made is delivered to the space instead of wasted by sending outdoors - so the room will get a little warmer even though no fuel is being burned. The same holds true at the other end. When the t-stat turn heat on, fuel is burned, but there's little heat until the source has reached the optimum temperature and then the heat is delivered to the space.

I hope this helps & good luck! Pleas rate my reply - thanks!

The timer has 96 on or off settings i set 1 pin to come on at 5pm and another to go off at 11pm. it goes on for a couple minutes then go off the only way it stays on is manually turning it on.


I don't know what timer you have, but I think you have to push all the pins in for the duration of time you want your device to operate. Push in all the pins between 5pm and 11pm.

You posted under Intermatic HB88RC timer
If you have different timer, add a comment

Press PROG button until 1 ON displays
This is Event1 ON

If you want all week long, then press day button until all days show: MO TU WE TH FR SA SU
Press Hour button until 5pm shows >> this is event1 ON
Press Min button until :00 displays for event1 ON

Have the timer set on Auto but lights are not on during the ON period. Also do I need to set times for all 7 periods?


No, you do not need to set all 7 timer events.
When event1 ON and event1 OFF are set, press CLOCK button to exit programming and save programs. Or press PROGRAM button and move to event2 ON and event2 OFF. Exit programming any time by pressing clock button.
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/consumer%20outdoor%20timers/digital%20timers/hb88rc.aspx

That being said, if events conflict with each other, timer will not operate.
For example event1 ON FR at 7pm and event1 OFF all-days at 11pm.
The days have to match for on-off times.

Another example event1 ON FR at 7pm and event1 OFF FR 11pm, but event2 ON all days 8pm event2 OFF all days 10pm. This overlap will cause timer to skip programs.

If timer is being used in random mode, timer programs cannot be closer than 1/2 hour apart.

When programming is done, press clock button to display current time.
Timer should be ready to go.
Manual is fuzzy at this point, and does not specifically say, but it appears that you only press MODE button when you want to set another mode beside auto.
I e-mailed Intermatic last week about this unclear spot because several folks are writing in about this timer not going into correct MODE after programs are set.
MODE must be set to automatic
Press MODE button once for manual override function
Press MODE again and RDM displays for random >> this is for lights turning on randomly when on vacation.
Press MODE button third time, and AUTO shows on display >> you want timer in AUTO for timer programs to operate.
Here's the trick ... after setting MODE to auto, press clock button to display current time

If timer will not enter AUTO, then timer is defective.
If Intermatic sends response that is pertinent to your question, I will post again on this thread.
Add a comment any time, and I will respond.

Emerson Smartset Clock Radio setting for everyday alarm


You will need to reset the Clock/Radio's microprocessor. To do this you must unplug the Clock/Radio and remove the internal battery (CR2430). Let the Clock/Radio set without any power source for at least 2 hours. Then put the internal battery back in the Clock/Radio and plug it in to the a/c outlet. Test to see if the Clock/Radio functions have returned to normal. If the function have not returned to normal, you will need to replace the internal battery. Then let the Clock/Radio again set with out power for a period of at least 2 hours. after a 2 hour period, put the new battery in the Clock/Radio and Plug it into the a/c outlet. Test the functions to see if the microprocessor has reset to normal operation. If you are still having a problem with the Clock/Radio's operations , you will have to give the Emerson customer support a call. The Telephone number for the Customer support is 1-800-898-9020. You can call them between the hours of 7am-5pm CT. Give them the make and model number of your Clock/Radio and ask them for assistance with your problem. I hope this information helps you fix the problem with the alarm in the Clock/Radio.
