Problem of Utilitech digital 8 outlet power strip timer

I am at time 9:58pm, and I program it to be on at 10:00pm and off at 10:02pm. But as soon as I finish programming and set mode to AUTO, it starts to be ON already, which is NOT yet within the time frame I set. Is it supposed to work that way?Or mine is a defective one? On the other hand, if I am at time 9:58pm, and set off time to 9:56pm, as soon as I set mode to AUTO, it turns off immediately. So I am not sure if 1) the timer makes CONSTANT comparison of current time with all programmed times to make decision, or 2) it ONLY does so on the programmed time points. My experiments above cannot draw conclusion to either 1) or 2).

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.

SOURCE: need instructions to set time for 8 outlet power Strip timer Utilitech

Copy following link to identify power strip timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#striptimer

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.

Breville you brew auto start not working


There is an error in the manual. Following the directions will, as you discovered, start brewing immediately.

To complete the auto-start programming, in step 8 of "Programming Auto-Start" you should NOT "press the PROGRAM button."

Instead, as soon as you have set the desired minute of the Start Time (step 7 in the manual), press the START / CANCEL button.


The LCD screen will then dim and display 'PROGRAM ON' to indicate that the Auto-Start feature has been successfully turned on.

Hope this helps.

I have the timer programmed but what mode should it be in Off, Auto or Random? I had it in Auto but the timer did not start at 10 am as programmed! Help!


HB88RC is discontinued timer, replaced by 2-outlet HB800RCL or 1-outlet HB800RCH.
Timer functions should work in AUTO.
Try resetting timer by removing AA battery, reinstall fresh battery, and then reprogram timer.
When programming is finished, press clock button and timer should be in AUTO mode and current time displayed.
If you want to change mode, then press mode button. When exiting mode, press clock button and timer should be back in AUTO mode.
If functionality does not restore, then timer has gone bad.

A lot of folks have written in about this timer going bad and they have been unable to program the timer. Of course most timers work perfectly fine.

For GE- 15117, Mode acts as a controller called "an On or Off override..." "or sets events to Automatic or random" Random = a +/- program shift (that's understandable). You'd think...


I cannot make precise sense of your question.
However I agree, the manual for GE 17117 is not clear.

1) A number of folks are writing in about this particular timer, with same MODE problem as you.
Some folks, the timer skips over auto.
Some folks the timer just doesn't come on.
Facts are facts, some timers are busted on arrival.

But let's look at the problem from three different directions and see if it helps:

2) Steps from manual:
When you finish programming, press clock button to return to current time.
Next set MODE.

Press MODE button and timer enters override ON-OFF. Override reverses whatever program is operating at that moment.
Press MODE button again and timer enters RDM random mode, and lights turn on-off randomly.
Press MODE button again and timer enters AUTO >>> auto is correct setting that lets programs run.
Here's the trick: after setting MODE to auto, press clock button again and current time displays.
If timer will not perform these steps, then timer is suspect

If timer performs these steps, but programs won't work, the timer is suspect or programming is suspect.

3) Check programming for conflicts and overlaps that cause timer not to function 'as expected.'
Some timers skip over conflicting programs, some timers simply stay on, others stay off.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/GE-15117-Manual.pdf

Example of conflict is event1 ON at 7am TU > but event1 OFF at 11pm All-days. Both event1 ON and OFF events must have consistent days >>> so change TU to All-days.
Another example is event1 ON 7am OFF 11pm TU >> but event2 says opposite, or has overlapping times.

I suggest folks make a schedule of programs before starting.
To review and change programs, start with current time showing in display: Press PROG button and scroll through event1 ON, event1 OFF, event2 ON, event2 OFF, etc.
Write down the events and make a chart.
Look for overlaps, and check for days of operation, and make sure each event ON has corresponding event OFF

4) If events are correct, and timer MODE button functions, but timer still doesn't work, the final suspect before calling the timer busted, is circuit problem. Use circuit analyzer on receptacle. Or plug timer into receptacle on different breaker and see if problem persists.
