http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-set-timers.html

Actually the timer dial can be either day or night, but usually the dark background with white numbers is 6 pm to 6am (night time)
While the white background with dark numbers is 6 am to 6 pm (daytime)

Turn off night lights and have no lights on during the night


The blue lights imitate moonlight over the ocean. Those lights are there to better imitate the fish's natural environment, which is almost never completely dark.

Is the day of the week in the middle of dau or night or at the beginning it on the GE vacation timer?


Vacation timers turn lights on-and-off at random times.

Timer dial rotates clockwise. Notice small arrows on timer dial located below each day letter.
Each day starts at the letter.
When the time-now pointer is at W, then wednesday starts.
For example W is wednesday. And th is thursday. The hours that show between W and th are wednesday hours.

Open following image. The time now pointer is pointed at 4:00pm Wednesday.
The blue letters with white background are AM, and white letters with blue background are PM.

To set current time, rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with time-now pointer.
Time-now pointer is stationary.

1) There is no repair for defective timer.
According to manual, under Initial Timer Operation: yellow outlet is ON at 4:00 pm.
Make sure Mode button is not set to OFF.

2) Scheduling timer: Think about the zilla timer this way:
Day is 12 hours and night is 12 hours.
Your total schedule is only 9 hours, but it overlaps day and night.

If timer 'night' starts at 6pm and ends at 6am, then your programming overlaps day and night.
If timer 'night' starts at 12midnight and ends at 12noon, then your programming still overlaps day and night.

3) To solve zilla time problem, set current time differently.
4) Or buy GE or Utilitec 24-hour programmable power strip

Open following link for Zilla timers
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#zilla

Zilla timers are unique for home-type timers.
They are two-channel timers, which means that timer has 2 independent programs.
In the case of Zilla, 1 program controls yellow outlets for daytime hours (6am to 6pm). Once daytime hours are over, the yellow outlets are OFF.
The other program controls blue outlets for nighttime hours (6pm to 6am). Once nighttime hours are over, the blue outlets are OFF.

So if you have a light for example, and light is plugged into yellow outlet, then you can program light to turn on-off during the daytime hours only. You cannot also set a nighttime program for the same light unless you plug light into blue outlet.

Zilla timers are for aquariums, where day and night plays important role in life cycle and activity of different types of aquatic beings.

Add a comment and say exactly which Zilla timer you have, and say what specifically you have done so far, and where you are stuck, and what loads you want to control.

I have both plugs in the yellow outlet and trying to put them on automatic setting and it wont do it. I need the light to be on at 5am to 11pm and it is not automatically doing it. What do i need to do to...


1) View Zilla product and manuals at following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#Zilla

2) Zilla is aquarium timer, and astronomic-type timer, and 2-channel timer, that breaks 24-hour day into strict night and day settings.

3) Manual says: both yellow and blue outlets cannot be on at the same time
Yellow outlets are daytime hours.
Blue outlets nighttime hours.
If you have analog timer, daytime hours show on dial with dark background.

4) You need to plug into both blue and yellow outlets to set times that run continuously from 5am to 11pm.

5) To solve problem might require different timer altogether.
Link posted above shows different Utilitec, Woods, Westek, and GE power strips models that might suit your exact purpose better.

I don't know what type of timer this is but usually night hours are darker colored or am/pm is marked on the dial. If you can figure where midnight is, set the off time for one hour later and set the on time to 6-1/2 hours later, counting hours around the dial.
If you can give me more info, I can help more.

Face of the timer doesn't indicate which numbers are a.m. and which are p.m., so how am I supposed to set the current time? There's an "8-4-12" that's not shaded and then an "8-4-12"...


You posted under Woods vacation timer:
See large image

This is a 7-day timer.
Days are printed on the dial.
Each day has night time with dark background and daytime in light background

If you want to set time for Monday at 12 noon, rotate dial clockwise until Monday 12 (in light background) line up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
After that, move switch to TIMER

Timer turns lights ON-and-OFF at random times throughout week

Power Center day/night timer


I would use two timers for this rather than the Zilla, but you could put the moon lights into the second timer set on for short periods before and after the white lights, then plug the white lights into the day outlets and set the timer to have them on for the five hours.

Instructions for zilla digital power center are unclear


I have the same problem and can't get the lights to automatically turn off and on by the time cycle I set. I have to manually turn them on/off which is useless. Did you get an answer?
