Question about Intermatic FD60MH Energy Controls - In-Wall Timers 60 minute Ivory With Hol

1 Answer

When setting the timer (model 12-817) power is activated between the hour choices (2 hr, 4 hr etc) but the power goes off when the dial is turned to the actual hour selection. If left between the hour choices, the timer does not automatically shut off. What gives???

What timer is this?
http://www.electricsupplyonline.com/prod/intermatic-springwound_timers.php

Sounds like a defective timer.
I have three Intermatic spring wound timers that are used every day, and never have that problem.
After all, how does the timer 'know' when it's set on the 'hour' since the dial does not have stop points at specific times?

How to set the clock using 24 hr and 12 hr clock


Copy following link to identify timer and download possible manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#oval
Add comment and describe timer in detail.
Usually if a timer offers choice between 24-hour clock with 1-thru-24 displaying for current time, vrs 12 hour am- 12 hour pm, then the choice is first thing you set before programming. The choice is made before setting current time, and usually this is accomplished with single button push that toggles between 12 and 24 on the display.
The product manual has specific steps.
Not every timer offers 12-24 choice.
Again, add comment and describe timer in detail, or attach photo for best available resources.

How do I set a plug in timer GE 24 hour Model 15075? There are tiny switches for every hour and can be pushed towards the inner circle or pushed outward. And there is a turning arow near the center and a...


Following link has a close-up photo of on-off pins on GE 15075 timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15075

Pins are located around timer dial
The pins divide 24-hour day into 1/2 hour segments
Pins are out for ON
Pins are inward for OFF
Notice that numbered dial is divided into dark and light areas ... the dark areas are PM, light areas AM.

For example you are connecting chicken coop lamp to this timer.
Turn lamp on and make sure bulb is working.
Plug lamp into timer.
Set pins in and out as follows: all pins outward between 4:30 pm on light part of dial to 8:00 pm on dark part of dial. And then set all pins outward between 5:00am on dark part of dial to 7:00 am on light part of dial.
Plug timer into outlet
Move switch located on top to TIMER ON
Manually rotate timer dial clockwise to see lamp turn on and off.
Lastly, set current time: Manually rotate timer dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial. So if current time is high noon, then rotate dial until 'sun' symbol located on light part of dial lines up with arrowhead.
As time passes, the timer dial rotates, and the pins click circuit on-off.
To override timer, move switch to outlet-on.

We need clear instructions for setting the timer


Woods makes several outdoor timers:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html

Image that shows with this post is Woods model #49647.
Below are instructions for #49647 timer.

If your timer is different, add a comment with model number and I'll post instructions for that timer.

Woods model #49647 is outdoor timer with photoelectric control that turns timer ON at dusk.
There are 4 possible settings that show on dial.
Rotate dial to make timer selection.
OFF = timer is OFF full-time until you change dial.
ON = timer is ON full-time until you change dial.
Dusk-Dawn = timer turns ON at dusk and OFF at dawn
2, 4, 6, 8 hours = timer turns ON at dusk, and turns OFF 2, 4, 6, or 8 hours later.

The instructions indicate to push the outer segments down with pen, etc to set timer. I can't get the segment to go down.


Generally the segments are already pushed down when you buy timer.

Instruction usually say, pull up all the segments, and after pulling up all the segments, then push down the segments for the hours you want the timer turned OFF or ON depending on timer

Can i use the timer for a water headter to trun on and off


Paragon 8145-20 is a 240V defrost timer
It is probably not best choice for water heater timer
Timer initiates defrost cycles each 4 hours.

A water heater timer should have more scheduling options.
-For example estimates show average run-time for water heater is 3 hours per day, depending on incoming water temperature, thermostat setting, and number of gallons used.
-To save money using water heater timer, you have to schedule times carefully so water heater runs less than 3 hours per day.
-Now your average electric water heater heats about 20 gallons per hour.
-Average shower uses 4-9 gallons hot water, so water heater needs to run 15-30 minutes (15 summer, 30 winter)
-Average bath uses 12-15 gallons hot water so water heater runs 45-60 minutes
-But lets say you run water heater for 1 hour and make 20 gallons of hot water. Then you take a shower, expecting hot water to remain in tank.
-Here's the problem ... cold water entered the tank to replace the shower water ... and the new cold water is cooling the rest of the tank.
-So a timer means scheduling hot water to match shower and bath events. For example taking shower and bath in immediate succession.
-Or set the timer for each individual hot water event ... for example set timer for 1/2 hour for shower, and later timer turns on 1 hour for bath, or 1-1/2 hr for 2 baths, etc
-> The flexible programming described above is not a characteristic of defrost timers.
I suggest Intermatic WH-31 240V or Intermatic T-104 240V or GE 15207. These are mechanical repeat-24 hour timers with manual override where each day has same schedule.
Digital programmable timers like Intermatic EH40 offer 7-day, 40 event programming. Weekends and weekdays can be different.
