Question about Intermatic Inc. ST01C Digital In-Wall Timer

1 Answer

I installed a GE 15071 on an outdoor floodlight (180watts). The timer randomly resets and looses all memory. I replaced it with another unit and it does the same thing. It is hooked up correctly.

If more than 1 timer is doing same thing, then suspect could be circuit or interference from Load.
Try timer on different circuit, on different circuit breaker.
Use cheap circuit analyzer from home center to test nearby outlet.

Otherwise, if you are buying timer from Home Depot, then maybe that specific batch of timers is bad.
I have tested 15071, and it is solid 7-day single-pole programmable timer without astro dawn-to-dusk feature.

You can also buy same-feature Utilitec 0141224 7-day Timer at Lowes.

I cannot program the "Off" time on my GE smart digital timer model 15071


Copy following link to identify timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15071

GE 15071/ manufactured Tork SS720
Reset timer, and try again.
Push and hold reset button with paper clip or toothpick for 3-5 seconds.
Buy new timer at Home Depot and return defect with new receipt.
Otherwise instruction manual is straightforward, and would not accept ON time unless wired correctly.

Intermatic/GE 15071 digital wall timer - Connection Problem


1) GE 15071 (Tork SS20) is single-pole timer, and cannot be wired as 3-way timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-timers.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15071

2) Check wire nuts are tight
Remove light bulb and spray WD40 into socket. Reinstall light bulb

3) Reset timer using paper clip or tooth pick, then reprogram to see if functionality is restored

4) Move timer to different location and see if it controls different light

5) Buy another 15071 from home depot.
Remove bad timer, take photo of wires, and install new timer same wire-for-wire.
Return bad timer to home depot in new package.
This is GE's extended warranty plan, but do not mention warranty at return desk.

5) Intermatic and GE are fierce rivals in the timer business.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html
Intermatic makes their own products. GE timers are generally made by Tork. Both companies sell timers worldwide.

Does timer 15071 automatically adjust for changing daylight length in addition to adjusting for daylight savings time?


GE 15071 sold at Home Depot and on-line has feature that adjusts for daylight savings time.
GE 15086 does not offer automatic adjustment for DST
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15071

Daylight savings time (DST) is not same as dawn-to-dusk astronomical timer.
GE 15071 and 15086 single-pole timers do not have dawn to dusk astronomical feature.

For single-pole dusk-dawn astronomical with DST, Lowes sells Utilitec-0192773
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html

For 3-way switching, 7-day DST -or- dawn-dusk astronomical:

My GE Smart Digital timer won't shut off at the assigned time, but it will shut down manually.


I am guessing that you have digital in-wall timer GE 15071 or GE 15086

To identify timer for sure, see images at following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15071

Manual for 15086
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/GE-15086-Manual.pdf

If this is new timer, the problem could be a couple things.
1) Circuit has electrical problem that is affecting timer electronics.
Use circuit analyzer from Home Depot electric department and test any receptacle on same circuit breaker as timer.
2) event1 ON was programmed but event1 OFF was not programmed. To review events, press Prog button once to see event1 ON and press Prog button again to see event1 OFF. When review is complete, press clock key to return to current time.
3) event1 ON and event1 OFF are programmed with conflicting day schedules
4) event1 and event7 have conflicting schedules

If this is new or old timer:
5) Timer needs to be reset because of internal glitch. Press and hold reset button for a moment and timer display will start flashing 12:00 am MO
6) These timers can go bad any time. I test timers and 4-6% arrive defective, and most quit after couple years, but some can last quite a while. This is why I suggest using a circuit analyzer to check if circuit is causing difficulties.

Your timer is bad. It comes with 1 year limited warranty.
Buy one at Home Depot and then return defective one.
Make note of wiring before removing bad timer, so re-wire is easy.

GE 15086 is White 7-day digital, non-astronomic timer made by Tork, and sold on-line and at Home Depot.
On the shelf, 15086 timer looks identical to 15071 >> same package >>> difference is 15071 offers daylight savings time and random option, and costs a bit more.

These in-wall timers usually last a few years, and some can last for several years.
Especially when timer operates from electric circuit and not battery.
15086 operates from electric circuit.

15071 GE SMART TIMER BLINKING WHEN TURNED ON


Sounds like you connected white wire incorrectly, or are trying to replace 3-way switch.
GE 15071 and 15086 are for single-pole switch replacement only, and will not work for 3-way.
Open following page for correct wiring of GE in-wall timers, and for list of timers used for 3-way.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15071

If you have different timer, add a comment with in-focus photo of your timer for correct identification and possible assistance.
