It depends on which Zilla product you have.
Resourceful do-it-yourselfer can add a comment after identifying product on following link and downloading manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#zilla

1) Digital timer has to be programmed.
If timer worked correctly before, and stopped working you might need AG13 replacement battery.
Or take battery out for several minutes to reset timer.
If timer will not reset or program with new battery, timer might have gone bad.
You can also use cheap circuit analyzer and check that circuit is clean and not interfering with timer electronics.
Programming manual on link above is best place to start for programming steps, and then add a comment if you are stuck on particular part of manual.

2) Analog timer has segments located on dial.
These segments are lifted up or pushed down to control on-off functions.
You can pull a few segments up and leave others down and then manually rotate dial clockwise to observe when power turns on-off. This will tell you exactly how to set segments.

3) All models of Zilla power strips are 2-channel.
Each have blue and yellow outlets, and each color correspond strictly to day or night.
Daytime outlets are blue.
Nighttime outlets are yellow.

Hi the clock is set for 60 Hertz, What about countrys with 50 Hertz in voltaje?


50 Hz means the electric generator rotates 50 times per second.
And then electricity oscillates or reverses polarity 50 times per second.
Products rated for 60 Hz will not operate correctly with 50 Hz power.

If timer is new, then it has 1 year limited warranty.

Analog timers have small clock motor that rotates dial, and the motor gets slow as it ages.
Sometimes the motor sticks at the tripper, instead of pushing the on-off lever.
There are no replacement clock modules for this timer.

Try timer on different outlet and different circuit breaker and on different load to check if outlet polarity or load noise is causing problem.
If more than one timer has same problem, test outlet with circuit analyzer.

If analog dial-timer is lagging, then clock motor has gotten weak and is overheating and will stop working. There are no replacement parts for this timer.

I am having problems setting up coralife aqualight power center


You need to plug them into the two yellow outlets, not the blue ones. The blue outlets are for night lights if you have them. Set the timer for 6 and stop at 12am. If you plug them into the two yellow outlets they should go on at 6 and turn off at 12, however If you also plug something into the blue outlets they will turn on as soon as the yellow outlets turn off, it's sopposed to switch from your day lights to your night moon lights automatically provided you got the moon lights plugged in the blue outlets. Hope this helps....

Instructions for zilla digital power center are unclear


I have the same problem and can't get the lights to automatically turn off and on by the time cycle I set. I have to manually turn them on/off which is useless. Did you get an answer?

My Coralife aquarium lamp does not turn on once it is turned off.... until the next day. Other times it seems fine.


The timer doesn't know what time it is until you set current time.
The yellow outlets are controlled for 12 hours, and you can determine when those hours occur when setting current time.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#zilla

If you want timer to control one lamp with both day and night schedules, you have to adjust current time setting so lamp schedule falls within a 12 hour period. If that schedule doesn't fit, then buy a second timer.
