Question about Garden

1 Answer

I purchased a Brinks EZ Preset Timer. I followed the directions and can not get my light to turn off in the 2 hour time that I set it at. If I have the timer on as soon as I plug in the light it turns on and never shut off. Am I not suppose to turn the timer on? I tried letting it sit there in the dark without turning on the timer and it still did not start.

I have the same problem with these timers! I thought that you could turn it on by pushing the "on" button, set how many hours you want it on for and that's it. It doesn't go on unless I unplug it and use my thumb to cover up the light sensor. Then I can set the hours and it will go off after say, 6 hours. I wish there was a solution that didn't involve unplugging it each day.

I have the 'Brinks EZ timer number 42 1009 and I can not get it to turn on a a specific time. it goes on thru the night


Timer is not identified. Add a comment and describe timer in detail.
Only resources appearing on internet for that timer are links to fixya. That means there is no information available.
However you can add comment and describe timer in detail and I can locate something similar, and possibly help.
Or buy identical new timer at Walmart, and return defect timer in new package for refund
Or copy following links to help identify timer:

Brinks 42-1009 ez vacation timer instructions


The Brinks 42-1009 EZ Vacation Timer is preset with 7 full days. You cannot choose when it goes on and off.

To set, spin the dial (clockwise only) until the arrow in the upper right of the center face is near the current day and time. Plug everything in and switch the upper tab to the right. On certain days, it will turn on in the early morning as well as evening or late night.

You cannot choose when to turn the light off. However, if you are home, you can turn the light on by switching the upper tab to the left. Remember to switch it back to the right in order to activate the timed on/off periods.

Got a brinks EZ- dial timer model42-1034B @ Walmart a few days ago can not seem to get it to work, Inst, seem so easy too. I read on some forum online someone thought the am/pm may be backwards to how it...


1) This Brinks timer is a bit lightweight for an appliance (unless for coffeemaker or tiny gerbil-feeding motor)
You might need 1/3 HP (horsepower) appliance timer like Woods 59201
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59201
http://www.amazon.com/Woods-59201-Appliance-Grounded-3-Prong/dp/B001Q9EFTQ
Intermatic HB113C is for heavier appliances
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-Hb113c/dp/B000GHKO6C
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Intermatic-HB114C-plug-in-4.jpg

2) How to set the Brinks:
I will use lamp as example since you can easily test the timer using a lamp.
Turn lamp ON. Make sure bulb is good.
Leave lamp turned ON and plug lamp into timer.
Move slide switch one direction.
Plug timer into outlet.
Manually rotate timer dial clockwise and see if lamp turns on-off
Move slide switch other direction, and rotate dial clockwise again to see if lamp turns on-off.

Now you know which way switch has to be moved.
Push down trippers and rotate around dial until they line up with 1:00 on dark part of dial and 5:00 on dark part of dial. Dark is for pm hours.

Last step: Set current time: rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial
Dial rotates at time passes, trippers push lever that turns circuit on-off.
