Timer is not identified
Some Intermatic outdoor timers have a battery located in back of timer.
Some have no battery.
Some timers are hardwired, and some are plug-in.
Some are 240V and can stop working if breaker trips off on one leg.
Check that timer has power. If timer plugs in, then try timer on another load and another outlet.
Some timers have trippers and dials, and others are programmable.
Some have no repair parts, others have repair parts.
If timer is programmable, then some have a reset button you can push and possibly restore functionality. Other timers are reset when you remove battery.

1) Add a comment and say what timer you have with description of dial or description of timer buttons. Be sure to open links below to help identify timer.

2) Also include in-focus photo of timer that you posted on Flickr for possible identification, and more help. Some timers have been discontinued, while others are replaced with same model.

3) Open following links to identify timer and/or troubleshoot timer problem, depending on what timer you have.

Outdoor light timer by Intermatic in house when we bought it. Trying to program it after changing batteries, but there are no directions for it. how would I get some instructions for it?


1) Model number is unknown.

2) You have outdoor programmable Intermatic timer, and replaced battery.

3) Open following link to help identify timer and download possible manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#hb88

4) If timer does not show on link above, add a comment with clear description of timer and buttons for possible identification and manual.

5) Most battery operated timers require 'reset' after battery change.
Manuals usually say, the battery is replaced and programs remain intact, and then current time has to be set again.
In typical situation however, most timers lose functionality with battery change. That's why timer is reset, and then reprogrammed.

6) If functionality is not restored after battery change and reset, then timer has gone bad.

7) Newer Intermatic timers have 'lifetime' warranty against workmanship defect.
Older timers have 1 year warranty.

8) Electronic timers, low voltage power packs, plus electronic water heaters, and electronic water softeners and treadmills etc are each susceptible to power surge from nearby lightning and also from simple power outage.
Not always necessary, but safest to unplug outdoor timer during storm event and with circuit breaker trip, or power outage. Plug back in after power is restored or storm is over. This is true also if timer is on GFCI, and breaker trips. Unplug timer and then reset GFCI.
Add a whole house surge protector to main breaker panel. This gives 1-time protection from surge event.

Had to change battery. Since I did this the day will scroll several times and will not let me set the day, nor the time, nor the mode. Is my unit toast ?? As it was working till I changed the battery.


Most digital timers suggest resetting as last-step effort to restore functionality.
This particular timer is reset by removing battery.
Try removing battery again. Otherwise it seems the timer has gone bad.
HB88RC is discontinued product.
Replacement is heavy-duty Intermatic HB800RCL 2-outlet or HB800RCH 1-outlet timer.

http://www.smarthome.com/48715/Intermatic-HB800RCH-Outdoor-Digital-Timer/p.aspx

Less expensive and less reliable timer Woods 59403 with 1-outlet has quite a few 'timer won't work' questions on fixya.

Looking for a timer to turn a 120volt 2amp water pump on for 1min 2 times aday that will last for more than 3 years please help


1) You need 120V timer to control 2 amp water pump.
V x A = watts so 120V x 2amp = 240 watt
754 watts per HP divided by 240W = 1/3 HP horsepower.

2) To get 1 minute time periods, you need electronic timer.
Most electronic timers have minimum 1 minute set time.
Same schedule each day, you can use 356-day, 7-day or 24-hour electronic timer.

3) To have electronic timer last longer than 3 years you need a clean circuit and expensive timer.
Use circuit analyzer to check circuit. Hire electrician to check circuit and replace pump if necessary to make sure timer will last as long as possible.

4) Intermatic ET70115C should last for many years. Battery is replaced every 8 years.
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/electronic%20time%20switches/next%20generation%20time%20switches.aspx
ET70115C $379
http://www.1000bulbs.com/product/3391/ELEC-ET70115C.html

5) You posted under EH10 water heater timer, which is inexpensive water heater timer rated for 1HP. You can't expect inexpensive timer to last as long when using a motor, although 1/3 HP is lightweight motor.

6) You can buy five EH10's for same price as one ET70115C.

7) List of ordinary electronic timers, each with slightly different features
Intermatic EH10 $73
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-EH10-Electronic-Heater-Indoor/dp/B000GHIPOA
Intermatic ET1105C $96
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-ET1105C-Hour-Electronic-Switch/dp/B002X1FYWI
Intermatic ET101 $101
http://www.westsidewholesale.com/24-hour-programmable-electronic-timer.html
Tork EW100B $177

Sylvania SA300 $72
http://www.amazon.com/Sylvania-SA300-120-Volt-Single-Pole-Industrial/dp/B000KKNEO4

8) See wiring diagrams and manuals for some of the timers listed above:

Where can I buy a new timer, I have looked at intermatic website and a general google


Search for Intermatic digital outdoor timer turns up HB800RCH
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/consumer%20outdoor%20timers/digital%20timers/hb800rch.aspx

Amazon shows one for $36
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-HB800RCH-15-AMP-Outdoor-Digital/dp/B002MUB8A2

Manual says 'plug the desired devices into the timer' >>> so it must have more than 1 plug for your lights etc
