User's guide for kambrook electronic timer kd94

Could not find a free guide, but e-how lists the basic instructions.
Instructions
    • 1 Set the day and time on the timer. Press and hold "Clock." While holding the "Clock" button, press "Day" to scroll through the days of the week and select the correct one. Press the "Hours" and "Min" buttons to select the correct time. Release "Clock" when you are finished.
    • 2 Press "Prog" set the "On" time for the switch. The word "On" and the number "1" will appear on the left side of the display.
    • 3 Press "Day" to choose an individual day or a block of days. Choosing an individual day means that this specific program will only activate on that day; choosing a block of days means that the program will be active on each day in the chosen block.
    • 4 Set the time that you want the timer to switch on by using the "Hours" and "Min" buttons to select the appropriate time. Press "Prog" when you are done to complete your entry of the "On" time.
    • 5 Select the "Off" time for your timer by using the "Day," "Hours" and "Min" buttons to choose when you want the timer to switch off. Press "Prog" again to save this entry. Repeat steps two through six to set additional timers.
    • 6 Press "Day" and "Hours" to activate the random timer mode. An "R" will appear on the LCD screen, indicating that the timer is in Random mode. This will cause your timer to switch on and off at different times, following no set pattern.
    • 7 Press the button that looks like a hand with the index finger extended to perform a manual override. The display will show you whether it is in Manual or Auto mode, and whether it is turned on or off. "Manual On" means that the time is switched permanently on while "Manual Off" indicates that the timer is turned off. "Auto Off" activates the program that you have set, while "Auto On" turns the time on until the next schedule "Off" time, after which it continues to follow your programmed times.
    • 8 Press "Clock" and "Prog" at the same time to use the countdown feature. Use the "Hours" and "Min" buttons to select the length of the countdown, and press "Manual" to start.
    • 9 To reset the entire unit and clear all programmed times, use the end of a paper clip or a ball-point pen to press the "Reset" button, located above the "Manual" button.

How do I set in Automatic mode, seems to only work manually since loss of power?

1) Power outage is major cause of timer failure. Power surge occurs when power is restored, and electronics are susceptible to surge. This includes water softerer, treadmill, electronic water heater, timers, etc.
Timers should be unplugged when power goes off.
Of all timers on market today, only one instruction manual says to unplug timer with power loss. However many people write fixya saying their timer, and electronic water heater control etc stopped functioning after power loss. Probably other products have same problem, but I work with timers and water heaters and see only that slice of the world.

2) Question posted under Woods 59377.
Several timers look identical or similar.
59377 timer has non-replaceable rechargeable battery, some similar timers have AA battery.
If timer has battery, change battery.
Then reset timer to restore functionality. Press reset button for a few seconds with paper clip.

3) If timer function does not restore after reset, then timer is bad.
Buy similar timer at Lowes or Target, and return defective timer in new package.

4) If function is restored, then re-program timer

I am an electrician and my client wants me to reprogram the digital timer (Intermatic) I don't know the model # but it looks like the one on the previous page. Probably the most popular digital wall timer...

Below are links to digital timers to help identify your timer.
Manuals for each timer appear on page.
Programming takes patience, which might be why your customer wants you to do it.
And these 1-year warranty timers go bad, and then timer will not reprogram, which may be another reason why customer wants you to do it.
Intermatic EJ500 and ST01C are battery operated, and will not program if battery is low.
Aube has rechargeable battery that is not replaceable, and this timer will not program if battery is bad.
Other timers shown below have clocks that operate on 120V circuit and require white neutral before display lights up.

Generally each programming is same: You set current time. Some timers you set daylight savings time. Some timers are 7-day, and some offer dusk-to-dawn. For 7-day, you set event1 ON and then event1 OFF for up to 7 programs. You choose the days for each event to operate. Before programming, make a schedule so there are no overlaps or conflicts in programming.
With Intermatic EJ500 and ST01C, event1 is the ON event and event2 is the OFF event, up to 40 events.

Add a comment if you hit trouble spot when programming.
Also fixya offers live phone support for a price.

Programming remains in memory forever, so you may only have to re-enter current time.

Intermatic Timer HB88RC unable to program it following instructions. Will not turn on in Automatic mode. Works fine in manual On mode.

HB88RC manual online:
http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/files/intermatic/products/instructions/timers/hb88rc%20-%20english.ashx

These timers are frustrating sometimes, fortunately this timer can be unplugged to set programs under good lighting.
When I have problems, I set it down for a while and then go back to it later.
Right now I own 25-30 different Intermatic, Woods, GE, Utilitec timers for testing and programming difficulties. Each one offers different points that are confusing.

Some new timers are simply defective. One guy today had 2 defective Woods timers, which made me suspect electric line needs line analysis. You might try your timer in another plug, for example indoor plug in another part of house to double check line is not interfering with timer electronics.

Reading HB88RC manual, there is not Dusk-dawn option, and programming steps are pretty straightforward compared with other timers.
This leads me to believe there is some small thing missed or line is bad, or timer is defective.
Return it if it's defective.

Here are some trip-up points, and they may not apply to you.

1) Current day has to be set. Hold clock button down while setting current time.

2) When programming, each event requires ON time and OFF time. For example event1 ON has to be set and then event1 OFF has to be set. Then set event2 ON and then event2 OFF.

3) When programming, check screen carefully to make sure 1ON appears, and then 1OFF appears in screen exactly like Fig1 and Fig3 shows.

Now I frequently e-mail Intermatic asking for manual clarification, and they e-mail back ... sometimes their manuals are a little bit off here and there. But this manual looks clean and matches what I see in other timers.

4) Each ON time requires OFF time for same choice of days. For example ON 7pm Tuesday and OFF 9pm All-days-of-week will not work correctly.

5) ON 7pm Tuesday and OFF 7pm Tuesday will not work.

6) Conflicts in programming cause some timers to skip programming: For example event1 says ON
at 7 pm Tuesday and OFF 9pm Tuesday, but event2 says opposite.

7) Since manual override works correctly, we know Load is functioning, and we know plugs on timer are working. Timer load can be lighting or pumps or heaters, but manual does not specifically say florescent. So timer MIGHT not work for compact florescent bulbs. If you have CFL bulb, try another type of Load: for example incandescent table lamp.

And that's everything I know, like Bubba Gump shrimp.
