SOURCE: resetting outdoor light timer

I would unplug the timer. Change the setting to 6 hours then plug back in.

SOURCE: I have a Woods TM1710

Woods timers and manuals
Woods TM1710 shows at page bottom, and does not have online manual that I can find

TH1710 is a promotional timer for outdoor use.
TD series and TM series timers are evidently sold at a price point, and not made with same features as more expensive timers.

That being said, TM1710 has a dial that rotates as time passes.
Poor image quality is hard to make out, but dial looks like 12 hour.
If this is true, then time programs repeat each 12 hours.
Set timer and the lights turn on-off during am hours, and then cycle repeats for pm hours.
Kinda silly to make 12-hour outdoor repeat timer since you want outdoor lights ON during pm but not am. But cheap prices sway we shoppers who later discover a saw horse that is supposed to balance on 2 legs.

To set ON-OFF times, there are segments located around outer edge of dial.
Pull segments up or leave them pushed down to set ON-OFF.
Most timers are OFF during hours when segments are pulled up, and ON when segments down, but this timer may be opposite.

Manual override is button or switch that overrides timer functions and turns light ON full time.
Again poor image quality makes it impossible to see manual override, but it looks like manual override is white button to lower right of dial.
If that button is manual override, then it appears to rotate.
Usually you set override one direction to override, and other direction for timer to operate

I can set the date & time and sunrise and sunset; however, the instructions to program are obscure to me. I want it to come on at dusk and go off at a set time.

1) Question posted under ST01C
Open following link for ST01C instructions with programming illustrations, plus wiring illustrations and battery information.

2) The ST01C cannot be set for on-at-dusk and off-at-programmed-time.

3) If you have different timer than shown above, then add a comment with description of timer buttons for possible identification.

4) I have not tested the following timer, and it may be same as all other in-wall timers, but it is possible that the new GE 15312 sun-smart timer can be set for on-at-dusk and off-at-programmed-time. BUT I am only reading the instruction manual for a new product, before people write the company and then the manual gets changed.
Wiring for this timer is more complicated that ST01C

5) There are numerous outdoor plug-in type timers that offer on-at-dusk, and then off 2 4 6 8 hours later.

6) Take a moment and rate answer:

GE Indoor Outdoor Timer # 15306 the clock is working and the when the time for it to go on it goes on but when the time comes for it to shut off it does not trip the off switch. I then have to shut it down...

1) If analog dial keeps time, I can only guess that OFF tripper is not in position correctly, or tripper is worn or defective, or that manual override lever is defective. Trippers are made of softer metal so they wear down before other parts of timer.
2) Buy Tork P47 trippers to replace GE 15306 trippers

3) Open following link for GE timer resources:

4) 15306 is heavy-duty indoor-outdoor version of Tork 1800 series or 7200 series 120Volt analog timer that is sold online and at Home Depot under GE brand name.

5) You can buy new timer at Home Depot and return defective one in new package.

6) The on and off trippers are attached to the analog dial.
Dial rotates as time passes.
Trippers make physical contact with the manual override lever. The ON tripper pushes lever one direction and the OFF tripper moves lever other direction.
The override lever rotates a cam located on back of timer that opens and closes electrical contacts.

How to set a GE outdoor timer product ID 51587 ?

GE 51587 has same instructions as Tork 601A single-outlet outdoor 24-hour mechanical timer.

Plug timer into outdoor outlet.
To set current time, rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Dial is divided into light and dark sections that represent day or nighttime hours.
Reset time after power outage.

96 pins located around timer dial are used to set on-off times.
Each pin represents 15 minutes in 24 hour day
Move pins in-or-out with fingernail or pen to set timer on-off functions.
With GE timers, usually when pins are out, timer is ON.
When pins are in, timer is OFF.

Set multiple ON/OFFs each day.
Timer repeats every 24-hours.

Manual ON/TIMER switch located on inner dial.

Set override to timer for program to operate.
To override time and turn on Load, move override to ON position.

Hello, My GE Dryer, Model M460-G timer won't shut off

Sounds like you have a faulty timer switch, check with your local supply house and get the same type of switch.
When you go to replace the timer switch, unplug the dryer, then remove one wire at a time. This will prevent wiring mix-ups.
Good luck,
I hope this helps
