Copy following link to identify power strip timer:

Zilla, Utilitec, GE strip timers use basically the same format for programming.
For each ON time, there has to be a corresponding OFF time, and days for On and Off times cannot conflict.
Best guess: you have a conflict or incomplete on-off program.

With Zilla timer, there is added level of complexity since the ON-OFFs are set for different day and night outlets.

Add a comment with the exact timer model number so expert can read the manual alongside you.

Problem of Utilitech digital 8 outlet power strip timer


Copy following link to identify exact timer, and download possible manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#striptimer

With this particular timer, press MODE and PRG button to clear timer programming.
When programming is complete, press CLK button to enter current time setting and end programming.
Then press Mode button until Auto indicator displays.
Make sure current time is correct, and that correct am-pm selected.
Make sure that on-and-off programs are set for same days-of-week, or conflict will cause timer to work erratically.
If timer is defect, buy another timer at Lowes and return defect in new package.

Installed 8 low voltage lights with a malibu digital 120w timer 2 months ago. The timer does not always work. I'll unplug then power up the system and then the lights turn on. Never had this problem...


Timer is not identified:
Open following link to see low-voltage digital timers and then add a comment if needed:
Page also has links to warranty information, and list of advisories so power pack lasts longer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Malibu-power-pack-stopped-working.html#digital

There are 2 likely suspects: Bad timer, or electrical problem.
There is no repair for bad timer, but timer has warranty through the manufacturer/ Malibu.
Electrical: Since power pack worked correctly before, then outlet probably has correct polarity, but I always suggest checking outlet with circuit analyzer.
Also plug lamp into same outlet and see if there is flickering that would indicate loose wire. Wiggle circuit breaker and see if lamp flickers. Move the outlet and see if lamp flickers.
Outdoor outlets get loose wires because of exposure to temperature and dust and moisture. Replace outlet and don't use the quick connects, instead use screw terminals.
If possible, move timer to different outlet on different breaker and see if problem persists.

Hey im having a problem, basically all im trying to do it make it so my heat lamp turns on only at night, so, i set my time to the correct time right now and then i pressed prg, set the days (everyday)...

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

I have completed the setup of my Day-Timer Mwave Tx12626x Timex Electronic 7 Day Timer. I turned on my television, then plugged it from the outlet, then plugged it into the timer. The TV will not turn on...


Open following link to identify your timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#Timex

1) Don't expect the timer to turn on the TV picture.
I have my TV plugged into power strip.
Each night the power strip is off. When power strip resumes next day, the TV is READY to be turned on with the remote control. The picture does not pop up when the power strip goes on.
Same is true for timer.
Try your power strip and see if picture turns on after power strip is turned off-on.
Timer will work same as on-off switch on power strip.

2) Is the power strip interfering with timer?
Plug timer directly into wall outlet and see what happens.
Add a comment and let others know what happened.

3) Battery: Timer requires 2-hours for initial battery charge.
Battery back-up protects programs when power is off.
I don't know if battery is made for repeated on-offs if you turn off power strip each night.
These batteries are not replaceable however timer has 1 year limited warranty.

4) Plug lamp into timer and see if timer operates lamp. This will say if TV electronics are interfering with timer operation.

5) Load: This timer says it is for appliances, which implies it should be rated typical 15A 1800 watt

Have set the timer to come on at the same time every day and off at the same time every day but when I put it Auto mode does not turn on. What step am I missing


You posted under GE dial-type power strip timer.
GE has 2 different models: 57698 & 15090
15090 has instruction manual, and 57698 doesn't.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#57698

GE also makes 15077 digital power strip timer:
The digital power strip has Auto mode.

1) If programming has overlaps, or if programs are set for conflicting days, then timer will not operate as expected. Review programming steps by pressing PROG button.

2) If current time is not set, then programs will not operate. Press and HOLD clock button while setting current time.

3) I test timers, and sometimes manuals are confusing so I write out the steps to make sure I understand correctly.

4) It is possible that timer is defective.
