Setting timer on T.V. screen

I set a couple programs to play tomorrow and Monday and it left the screen before I could finish. I can't seem to find out how to bring it back on the TV screen. If it's my age, I'm 71 and not so good anymore on these kind of items.

I gave up last night and decided to start with a fresh brain this morning. I started from the beginning that gave the instructions how to set up the machine and I must have hit the right buttom and low and behold, I had acquired what I couldn't do last night.

Thanks for following up with me. I guess I need to give myself more time to figure things out.

Hey guys, the 15079 GE timer has 20 on/off settings. Are they for the whole week?


Eeeckles,

The timer you mention 15079 does has 20 on/off settings that can be set during a 1 week period that will then repeat each week. For example Setting 1 could be to come ON on Monday at 5:00pm and turn OFF Monday at 11:00pm while setting 2 could be to turn ON on MWF at 3:00pm and OFF MWF at 3:30pm.

You can find all of the UPDATE GE Timer manuals at the manufactures website: http://www.jascoproducts.com/support/timer-quick-start-guide.asp

Blessings!

I have set program 1 on and off times and program 2 on and off times but do not know what mode to choose to get it to work!!


People are writing in with problems about HB88RC.
Problems seem to revolve around MODE button and setting automatic for timer to operate programming.

One guy said his timer skipped over automatic.
Another fellow today reported that timer programs would not work.

So maybe your timer has similar problem.
I'm going to e-mail Intermatic with recent information.
I need clarification on your exact question.
Intermatic generally e-mails back and is concerned with their products and customers.

That being said, let's look at your timer problem.
When you finish programming 1 and 2, press Clock button to exit programming and current time shows on display.
At this point, timer should function.

According to manual:
If you press MODE button once, timer will enter override, and lights will turn on.
Press MODE button again, RDM shows on screen and timer enters random mode and lights turn on-off randomly so it looks like folks are home.
Press MODE again and timer returns to Automatic and programs 1 and 2 should run.

Add a comment and let me know what is happening so I can report to Intermatic.
I will post results on this thread.

I bought a utilitech three outlet outdoor timer and cannot get it to set. Now I cannot seem to find the instructions that came with it. Where can I download the instructions?


I bought one also but am taking it back today as I am not satisfied with the performance and the internal battery dies losing all programming. The instructions below are word for word from the manual but not all that clear. Since I can't post the diagram from http://www.thencc.com/westinghouse/LS/Instruction/T28499_TimerManual.pdf (if I can post links here), I substituted words in the "Set Mode" section instead. This is for the Utilitech 0149289 model and also applies to the Westinghouse and Stanley equals. Good luck.

I also am having trouble with this timer. I've got the program set for when I want it to go on but can't figure out how to put in the time I want it to stop. I don't understand where the countdown timer...


ETW350 is programmable timer that offers 3 different timer
functions: Program, countdown and random.
Timer has 20 different settings.
UPM site is not available recently, but UPM timers are still being sold.

Operation manual is not very clear how to program ON and OFF times.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/UPM-etw350.pdf

That being said, usually with programmable timers, you program ON time. And then program OFF time.

I do not own this timer so I can't test ETW350 like I've tested other timers.
I think the way this timer works, is program1 is ON.
And program2 is OFF.
Again, manual is not CLEAR about ON and OFF times.

Following instructions assume timer is wired correctly, timer is set for current time, and you want to set 'timer' function and not 'random' function.
Here's how to set program1.
Press arrow buttons until 1 shows in display. This is program1.
Press Set button.
Select day for program1 ON using arrow keys
Press Set button.
Select hour for program1 ON using arrow keys.
Press Set button.
Select minute for program1 ON using arrow keys.
Press Set button.
Use arrow keys until 2 appears on display. This is program2.
I believe program2 is for OFF times.
Set program2 using same steps above.
Be careful to match ON and OFF days ... for example ON 7pm Monday and OFF 9pm Friday will keep lights on from Mon through FRI.
Conflicts in programming will cause timer not to work. For example program1 ON 7pm Monday, program2 OFF 9pm Monday ... but programs3-4 say opposite times.
Make a schedule of program times before starting to avoid conflicts.
Try steps above and test fire that timer, and then add a comment.

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.

How do you set for 7 days lights on and off


Intermatic has two slightly different ways depending on model. first way:

Press MODE until the screen displays PGM
with blanks for time.
Press DAY/DST as many times as necessary to
display 12:00 a.m. and the day(s) you want
the program to activate. Choices are:
- everyday
- weekdays only
- weekends only
- a specific day
NOTE: If you go too far, keep pressing DAY/DST to loop back
around again.
Press HOUR+ to set the hour you want the program to turn ON.
Press M+ to set the minutes you want the
program to turn ON.
Press NEXT ON/OFF to set the OFF time for the
program. The screen again displays blanks.
Press DAY/DST as many times as necessary to
display 12:00 a.m. and the day(s) you want
the program to activate.
NOTE: Since you're setting an OFF time for an
ON event already programmed, choose the
same days as in the ON event.
Press HOUR+ to set the hour you want the program to turn
OFF.
Press M+ to set the minutes you want the
program to turn OFF.
At this point you have two choices:
Press MODE if you are finished to exit from programming.
Press NEXT ON/OFF to set another program. Repeat from
Step 2 above.

Second way:

Press the MODE button one time. (PGM) will be displayed on the top left corner of the timer. We are setting the ON time for Program 1. --:-- -- 1 ON will be displayed on the screen.
Press the DAY/DST (bottom left) button to select the day or series of days the timer is to turn ON. You can either select the ASTRO time, which will adjust as the days get longer and shorter or a specific time. To use the ASTRO time press the DAY/DST until SNST appears on the screen. All seven days will be shown on the bottom of the timer.
Or to use a specific time press the DAY/DST button and select the day or series of days the timer is to turn ON.
Use the HOUR+YEAR- (bottom center) button and select the HOUR to turn the unit ON. Use the
M+ZONE+YEAR+ (bottom right) button to set the MINUTES of your on time.
Press the next ON/OFF button one time. We are now setting the OFF time for program 1. Press the DAY/DST (bottom left) to select the day or series of days of operation. To use the ASTRO time press the button until SNUP appears on your screen.
Or to select a specific time, press the DAY/DST button and select a day or series of days the unit is to turn Off.
Press the HOUR+YEAR- (bottom center) button and set the hour of your off time. Press the M+ZONE+YEAR+ (bottom right) button to select the minutes of your Off time.
For additional programs press the NEXT ON/OFF button to the next program and follow above steps. Check the unused programs to assure they are blank. To check the other programs press the NEXT ON/OFF button, you should see --:-- -- on the screen. If a time appears press and release the DAY/DST button until the --:-- -- appears. Repeat this step thru Program 7 off.
Press the MODE button. (AUTO) will appear on top center of screen.

If you cannot program, try to reset the whole timer:

Press the RESET and the NEXT ON/OFF buttons at the same time. Release the buttons and wait for 1200 to start blinking.

Setting Current Time.

1. Press the C+ (clock) button and hold, then simultaneously press the W+ (week) button until the actual day is displayed.

When setting block dates, the ON and OFF times apply to all dates in the block.
