Rotate disc counter-clockwise until current time lines up with silver pointer.
Do not force dial clockwise.
Attach trippers to outside edge of dial at ON-OFF times.
Trippers are interchangeable ... When tripper screw is inserted on side marked ON, it is ON tripper ... turn tripper over and insert screw on side marked OFF, it is OFF tripper.
Store extra trippers in racks on either side of dial.

Need instruction for setting time of day


You posted under Paragon 1015 timer.
Open following link to identify timer and download manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#1015

Timers are 24 hour, but some have 7-day capability:
Manual says: to set 7-day grasp large 24 hour dial and rotate either direction until correct day of the week appears below Day Set red dot and 12 noon on large 24 hour dial is below red pointer.
To set 24 hour, grasp large 24 hour dial and rotate either direction until correct time appears below red pointer.
Red pointer is stationary at 6:00 position.

Do not know how to set timer DT300 for Lights


Hi

Programming:
Set present time
Then set ON time for program 1
Set OFF time for program 1
Then set ON time for program 2
Set OFF time for program 2
Most timers will not function if there is a conflict in programming > for example Program 1 says ON at 6 and OFF at 7 and Program 2 says opposite or has overlapping times
When events are set, press SET once > this will put timer in RUN mode

If manual override works, and you set programming correctly, but timer does not carry out instructions, I guess the timer is no good.

Intermatic has 24 hour timers with 2 on-off per day
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/consumer%20indoor%20timers/lamp%20%20appliance%20timers.aspx
Intermatic has 7-day digital timers (all digital timers today are 7 day where you select the day that each program works)

I am an electrician and my client wants me to reprogram the digital timer (Intermatic) I don't know the model # but it looks like the one on the previous page. Probably the most popular digital wall timer...


Below are links to digital timers to help identify your timer.
Manuals for each timer appear on page.
Programming takes patience, which might be why your customer wants you to do it.
And these 1-year warranty timers go bad, and then timer will not reprogram, which may be another reason why customer wants you to do it.
Intermatic EJ500 and ST01C are battery operated, and will not program if battery is low.
Aube has rechargeable battery that is not replaceable, and this timer will not program if battery is bad.
Other timers shown below have clocks that operate on 120V circuit and require white neutral before display lights up.

Generally each programming is same: You set current time. Some timers you set daylight savings time. Some timers are 7-day, and some offer dusk-to-dawn. For 7-day, you set event1 ON and then event1 OFF for up to 7 programs. You choose the days for each event to operate. Before programming, make a schedule so there are no overlaps or conflicts in programming.
With Intermatic EJ500 and ST01C, event1 is the ON event and event2 is the OFF event, up to 40 events.

Add a comment if you hit trouble spot when programming.
Also fixya offers live phone support for a price.

Are the 7 different programs for 7 different days or are they exclusive?


There are 7 ON events and 7 OFF events
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Woods-59028-59018.pdf

When programming the timer, you select individual days or blocks of days.
For example program1 ON time
Set the Hour
Set the minutes
Press the day key to scroll through the possible choices.
Then you set program1 OFF time
Set the hour
Set the minute
And then press the day key to scroll through the possible choices.

The choices are:
Each individual day
Monday thru Friday
Sat-Sun
Monday thru Sat
Monday thru Sun
Monday-WED-FRI
Tues-Thurs-Sat
Mon-Wed
Thurs-Sat

The key is to set the ON and OFF times for the same days or blocks of days
For example program1 ON is 8:00 am Mon thru Friday
Set program1 OFF for 3:00 pm Mon thru Friday

and then program2 ON is 8:30am Sat-Sun
program2 OFF is 5:00pm Sat-Sun

Program 3 ON is 6:00pm Tues-Thurs-Sat
Program3 OFF is 9:00pm Tues-Thurs-Sat

Program4 ON is 6:00pm Sat
Program4 OFF is 11:00pm Sat

Programs5, 6 and 7 might not be needed

The key is to make a chart of times before setting timer.
The chart will prevent conflicts in programming where the timer does not operate as expected.

TIMER IS WILL NOT COME ON FOR THE TIME IT IS SET FOR.


This 7 day timer is not a precision device. The resolution on this timer is very low and almost impossible to set with precision.

If your requirement is to have the load come on at an exact time you may wish to consider an electronic type of 7 day timer.

I'm trying to set the times on a paragon amf 7 day timer


There should be 2 trippers for each day, the trippers slide on the outside of the dial and would point to the time of day you want your lights on and off. The silver trippers may be gone on that aged time clock, but are easily obtainable.
