This line of timers has mostly disappeared from market... I do not know who is offering tech support for the product.
If you purchased the timer recently, it may be previously used or non-functioning.
The manual is complicated and incomplete ... probably because they have built-in or intuitive steps that display when you program the timer... or they assume you want to fiddle around with their product.
It appears the timer must be wired correctly prior to programming.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-timers.html

- you set the current time first... you toggle through menu choices using arrow keys... go to clock...press set.. toggle to find current day (today) and then press set button... then do the same for hour and minute... pressing set button to confirm each selection.
- to program... you toggle through menu choices using arrow keys... when 1 ON appears on display... press set... select day or days for program 1 on using arrow keys... press set... select hour and minute... and press set after each to confirm selection.
These steps confirm setting for program 1 ON ...the day hour and minute that program 1 turns ON
Each ON program requires OFF program..
Probably the timer automatically displays program 1 OFF as soon as program 1 ON is set... then you follow same steps to select day, hour and minute for program 1 off.
Repeat steps to set up to 20 programs.
Do not touch buttons for period of time, and the timer probably displays current time and is ready to go, but manual is unclear about setting the mode..

Connect the timer white wire to bare ground wire.
Open following link to read instructions:
http://waterheatertimer.org/programmable.html#wire

Connecting white to ground is not 100% code, but it is not dangerous in this instance since the clock motor is less than 3 watts.
Or install battery-operated Intermatic ST01C timer that does not require Neutral wire:

I finally found the instructions for the Brinks timer 44-1011 and they work.
    • BRINKS DIGITAL TIMER 44-1011 INSTRUCTIONS

    • 1*Press and hold the OK button for 4 seconds. Hour Display flashes.
    • 2*Press +/MANUAL or - to select the hour. Press OK to confirm.
    • 3*Minute display will now flash. Press +/MANUAL or - to select the minute. Press OK to confirm.
    • 4*Press MENU to exit the time setting mode. Now the timer is in clock mode.
    • PROGRAM SETTING NOTE: This timer can be set up for up to 2 different programs. We will use PROG 1 for this example, however these steps can be repeated for any of the 2 programs. To cycle through the individual programs use the +/MANUAL or - after pressing MENU in step one until the desired PROG "#" is flashing. To clear a program setting hit the RECALL button when you have the program selected.
    • 1*Press MENU button, PROG 1 "ON" will flash, press OK.

    • 3*Turn off DLST, +1H will disappear and LCD shows the real time. MANUAL OVERRIDE AND ALWAYS ON/OFF When in clock mode the +/MANUAL sign cycles through
    • 4 settings that serve as manual override. **ON - Indicates that the timer is in the ON mode, and will always be on regardless of the programmed setting. **AUTO ON - At this selection, the timer will come on regardless of the programmed setting, but it will follow the next programmed command. **OFF - Indicates that the timer is always off (i.e. the wall socket is turned off) **AUTO OFF - Indicates that the timer is in the OFF mode until the next programmed step that turns it ON.
    • NOTE: For normal timer function, the selection must be either "AUTO ON" or "AUTO OFF". RESET At any mode, press RESET for 5 seconds. All settings will be cleared, return to clock mode, 12:00 MO, AM, AUTO OFF will be shown on LCD
I hope this is helpful. It was a bear to find.

the manual says each unit has a maximum load of 3 amps (abt 7 one hundred mini light sets). when ANY INDIVIDUAL outlet is overloaded,ALL lights will turn off and an outlet overload message (OL) will be displayed. To reset,unplug unit,then unplug some of the lights in the outlet that appears to be overloaded and plug unit back in
