Have programmed this timer twice. Set for 7 days a week to come on at 8AM and shut off at 10PM. It only lasts on automatic for two days then shut offs. When checked it has jumped two hours and is in the off position. All automatic settings are gone. Please advise

1) I test timers. Some arrive defective.
People write to fixya reporting glitches and problems with this timer.
However, fixya might show complaints because timer is popular. After all, if nobody bought certain brand car, there would be few complaints.
2) This timer resets after power outage, so if you have loose wire, then timer will reset.
3) Timer problems are also associated with interference, noise, or bad wiring. Buy cheap circuit analyzer at home center and test by plugging into outlet.

4) Try timer on different circuit, for example indoor circuit, and plug in different load.
5) Above information should narrow down if timer is defective, or if wiring or load are causing problem. Return defective timer to Home Depot, Lowes or Target and buy another.

Also take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

The auto mode isn't working on my zilla digital 24-7 power center, when on auto mode no lights come on?


Copy following link to identify timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#zilla
Is this a new timer??? Or old timer that stopped working?
Replace battery.
Press reset button to clear all memory traces before programming.
Check programming for overlaps and mismatched day(s) of operation.
Test outlet for correct polarity and grounding using circuit analyzer.
Make sure light bulb is turned ON. Timers do not reach out and rotate on-off switch.
Make sure outlet has at least 80% rated voltage shown on load label. For example 115 volts x 80% = 92 volts

About your specific programming needs:
Zilla selects 12 o'clock as changeover time between am-pm.
So if you want 8:02 to 7:59 operation, then that is under the 12 hours, but it crosses the 12 o'clock am-pm changeover.
Workaround: Shorten your times to less than 12 hours just like you have done.
But set current time differently so 8-8 falls under either am or pm, but does not cross am-pm. The timer does not actually know what the current time is, so simply fudge by amount needed.

I WOULD NEED SOMEONE TO TALK ME THROUGH IN PERSON , HOW TO PROGRAM THE TIMER FOR 8AM TURN OFF AND 8PM TURN LIGHT ON EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR - THE SAME TIME ...


If you want someone to talk to you, you will have to pay for phone help.

Here are the simplified instructions.


Press Mode to step thru various options, you only need to get to CLK.

Then set the hour, minute and day of the week first.

If you want the timer to go on & off at the same time for 7 days, you must program 7 times.

Good luck, Gary


Setting the Time of Day

Press MODE to go to the Clock (CLK) settings. The display will flash with 12:00 AM.

Press HOUR+ to stop the flashing.

Press HOUR+ and M+ to set the current time in hours and minutes.

Make sure that AM and PM settings are correct.

Note: The day of the week is shown at the bottom of the display. If you have not programmed the calendar settings,

be sure to also set the current day of the week while programming the current time. To do this, press DAY until the
correct day of the week is shown. The CLOCK settings are now complete.

Press MODE to go to the first PGM screen. See Fig.9

Use DAY, H+ and M+ buttons to set the days, hours and specific times that you would like the timer to turn ON.

(NOTE: Be sure the word ON is displayed when setting the ON time.)

Press NEXT ON/OFF to program an OFF time.
Repeat the same steps for all 7 ON/OFF operations, if required.

Indoor timer 0155671 it wont turn on or off after programing


Utilitec 0155671 7-day digital programmable timer is sold under different brand names and numbers
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59377
Read instructions on following link.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-program-Utilitec-0155671.html

There are 7 general things to look for if digital timer is not working correctly.
1) 0155671 timer is considered incandescent light bulb timer (tungsten) and not necessarily made for motors loads, TVs, CFLs etc. Try using timer on table lamp with incandescent bulb. Turn lamp ON, and make sure bulb is good.
2) Outlet is wired wrong: test outlet with circuit analyzer, and try timer on another outlet, and with different load. For example if outlet polarity is reversed, or if load has interference.
3) Timer is programmed for ON times but not for OFF times.
4) Programming has conflicts, for example program1 ON is for 8am Mon but program1 OFF is for 11am all-days-of-week.
Or program1 and program2 ON-and-OFF times conflict.
5) Timer is not set in AUTO mode, and timer is in random or countdown mode.
6) Timer is defective: 6-8% of all timers arrive defective.
7) If timer is older, the internal battery may be fading. Battery is not replaceable. These timers have 1 year limited warranty.

Have the timer set on Auto but lights are not on during the ON period. Also do I need to set times for all 7 periods?


No, you do not need to set all 7 timer events.
When event1 ON and event1 OFF are set, press CLOCK button to exit programming and save programs. Or press PROGRAM button and move to event2 ON and event2 OFF. Exit programming any time by pressing clock button.
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/consumer%20outdoor%20timers/digital%20timers/hb88rc.aspx

That being said, if events conflict with each other, timer will not operate.
For example event1 ON FR at 7pm and event1 OFF all-days at 11pm.
The days have to match for on-off times.

Another example event1 ON FR at 7pm and event1 OFF FR 11pm, but event2 ON all days 8pm event2 OFF all days 10pm. This overlap will cause timer to skip programs.

If timer is being used in random mode, timer programs cannot be closer than 1/2 hour apart.

When programming is done, press clock button to display current time.
Timer should be ready to go.
Manual is fuzzy at this point, and does not specifically say, but it appears that you only press MODE button when you want to set another mode beside auto.
I e-mailed Intermatic last week about this unclear spot because several folks are writing in about this timer not going into correct MODE after programs are set.
MODE must be set to automatic
Press MODE button once for manual override function
Press MODE again and RDM displays for random >> this is for lights turning on randomly when on vacation.
Press MODE button third time, and AUTO shows on display >> you want timer in AUTO for timer programs to operate.
Here's the trick ... after setting MODE to auto, press clock button to display current time

If timer will not enter AUTO, then timer is defective.
If Intermatic sends response that is pertinent to your question, I will post again on this thread.
Add a comment any time, and I will respond.

I have a HB88RC Intermatic 7 day / 7 event timer. I have followed the "easy set instructions" I have program 1 set to turn on X-mas lights at 4:30 PM and go off at 11:30 PM. For all seven...


Just program it as noted previously and put the timer in Auto. Set the clock to 1 min BEFORE your earliest timer program is set to come on. When the clock hits the correct time, it will turn on. Then set the clock to the correct time and you're golden.

Intermatic EH10: I can't figure out how to set a schedule of Sun - Thurs, 8am on, 10pm off and Fri & Sat, 8am on, 11pm off. I tried every day of the week 8am on, 10pm off and Fri & Sat 8am on, 11pm...


http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/eh10-manual.pdf

The EH10 is 120V digital timer.
The timer offers the following days:
-All 7 days
-Monday thru Friday
-Saturday and Sunday
-Each individual day
-Blankday (day skipper)

If I understand your schedule:
You want
Program1 ON at 8am Sunday
Program1 OFF at 10pm Sunday
Program2 ON at 8am Monday thru Friday (with blankday on Friday)
program2 OFF at 10pm Monday thru Friday (with blankday on Friday)

Program3 ON at 8am Friday
Program3 OFF at 11pm Friday
Program4 ON at 8am Saturday
Program4 OFF at 11pm Saturday

I filled in the chart for you.
I left off the display.
I do not have this timer and don't know 100% how the display looks without buying the timer.

How to set start time on timer raindrip r672c


The start time on these style of timers is whenever you set it. So if you want it to run at night it needs to be set at night, e.g. turn to off/reset, then at 10pm go set to the freq. and duration desired, then it will run at 10pm. Also note this timer waits a full cycle to run the first time after it is set, e.g. if today you set it to run weekly, the first time will be next week.

Need a manual for drayton tempus 3 heating control


I've ended up with a Drayton Tempus 3 when I bought my house, and I think this is how it works. It allows you to set 2 Timers (I'll call them timer 1 and timer 2) so that you can control Hot Water or Heating On/Off times twice a day. The unit has 6 buttons - 2 for Adjustment, 2 for Hot Water and 2 for Heating. The 2 Adjustment buttons allow you adjust the Clock Time, or allow you to adjust Timer 1 and/or Timer 2. NOTE: Timer 1 is the time refered to on the Heating / Hot Water Select buttons if you press "Once". If you select "Twice" on these the both Timer 1 and Timer 2 are taken into account. For example if you want Hot Water to come on Once between 8pm -10pm, but you want Heating to come on Twice between 6am - 7am, and 8pm -10pm, you have to do the following: Set Timer 1 to 8pm - 10pm, and set Timer 2 to 6am -7pm. Then select Once for Hot Water, and select Twice for Heating. Hope this helps.
