GM40 is commercial-grade electronic time piece with FM1 analog timer dial.
I bought a used GM40 once and the electronics were bad, so if this is a used timer, it might not function as expected.

I don't think the tabs/pins are broken. FM1 timer module is heavy duty.
Turning the dial clockwise does not damage timer. That's how you set current time and test timer.
Rotating dial counterclockwise is not possible without breaking the timer.

http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Intermatic-Grasslin-gm40.pdf

FM1 analog timer module can be replaced if timer stopped working.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#FM1

If certain pins/tabs are broken, you might be able to work around problem by offsetting current time by 6 hours or 12 hours. Or you can move wires from NO to NC terminals and see if the relays are causing a problem.

To set FM1 timer, the pins are pushed outward or inward.
For example to turn on Load for 1 hour, then 4 consecutive pins are moved.
To turn on Load for 3 hours, then 12 consecutive pins are moved.
To test if pins need to be inward or outward, set some pins and then manually rotate timer dial clockwise and watch when the Load turns on-off.

I was looking at GE timers at Home Depot tonight.
Timer ON is correct setting.
Segments up should be lights off.
You lights turn ON with outlet on, so lamp, bulb and electricity are good.

Troubleshoot your timer:
What happens when you manually rotate the dial clockwise?
Do lights turn on and off at scheduled times?
Move override switch both directions and rotate dial manually with switch in each position.
Are the segments pulled all the way up?
If lights do not respond when dial is rotated manually, and segments are all the way up, then timer is broken.
If lights turn on-off with manual rotation, then check if clock motor is rotating dial.
If dial is not rotating, then timer is broken.

The way these timers work is this:
Timer clock with plastic gears rotates dial.
Dial rotates as time passes.
Plastic arm rides along outside edge of segments. See photo below.
When segment is pulled up, plastic arm clicks inward via spring action.
The moving arm opens electrical contacts that turn lights OFF.
If dial is not rotating, or the spring is worn out, or the plastic arm broken off, or the contacts fused together, or override wire is disconnected, then timer is broken.

I test these timers.
4-6% arrive defective, and most last 1 or 2 seasons and then they break.
But they are priced low and easily replaced.

How do you set the timer


You posted under mechanical outdoor timer with time dial located on face.
If you have different timer, add a comment.

Instructions:
Rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
There are segments or pins located around outer edge of dial.

If timer has segments.
Pull these segments outward, or leave them in place to set on-off times.
Pull out a few segments and then rotate dial clockwise to see if lights turn on or off with segments out.
Then pull out segments for the times you want timer to turn on-off.

If timer has pins.
Click pins outward, or leave them in place to set on-off times.
Click out a few pins and then rotate dial clockwise to see if lights turn on or off with pins out.
Then pull out pins for the times you want timer to turn on-off.

Some timers also have an override button located on inner dial or somewhere on body of timer.
Move this switch to TIMER or AUTO, depending on your timer

Program a timer


You posted under Paragon 2606 Panel-mount countdown timer.
If this is not your timer, add a comment.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html

2600 series is mechanical interval timer.
26006-00 can handle 10 amp loads.

Interval timer is a countdown timer that keeps Load turned on for set amount of time.
You set the time by rotating dial

To start timer, Rotate dial from 1 minute to 30 minute.
Rotating dial turns on Load and begins countdown.
Timer turns OFF Load after set amount of time expires.

Download manual for Malibu 200 Watt power pack

According to Malibu website information, your power pack is correct size if lights come on.
The way to figure is this
10 bulbs x 18 watts each = 180 Watts
so 200 watt power pack is good

Does the manual override work?
Rotate the on-off button counterclockwise
If override does not turn lights on-and-off, then timer has a short

Does the center dial turn when power is on?
If the dial is not turning, then power pack is kaput, or time of day is not set

Did you reset the time of day?

How to set time of day:
Put your trippers in place
Red = ON
Black = OFF
Plug in power pack
Rotate arrow (colored blue in diagram) as follows
Turn dial clockwise to present time of day (diagram shows 9 o'clock)
Turn dial one or more full revolutions, then return to present time of day

If center dial is still not rotating after setting time of day, it's time for new $50-80 power pack, unless you put a $15 timer on that plug. A cheap timer might work ... keep it going for couple more years.

Make sure your timmer is set to "AUTO" mode and that your programed times/weekdays are good, resetting the timmer should solve your issue i've had it before, these timmers do this to me once and a while.

Make sure you dont have an "O" on the left of your time as this randomises off/on times by 2 to 32 mins. Press "HOUR" and "MINUTES" at the same time to toggle this option.
