I have this problem as well! I was just googling this problem when I found your post. I have the exact same watch and have had it for 2 years. I don't expose it to the sun or heat though.

SOURCE: I am replacing an old intermatic model EJ341

GE 15086 is a 7-day programmable timer. It has more wires than spring-wound timer because clock motor runs on 120V circuit, just like ordinary electric clock. The clock on spring wound timer operated by a spring.

If I understand correctly, the old timer has 2 wires. One of these wires is the Hot wire ... and that wire will connect to GE timer black wire.
The other wire from old timer goes to Load ... and that wire will go to GE timer red wire.

Instructions on a lot of these timers say, it timer doesn't work, then reverse the two wires described above ... this is because timer only works when Timer black connects to Hot.

You can also turn on power and test each wire that came off old switch to bare ground wire. When tester lights up, that is Hot wire.

GE timer Green wire connects to bare ground wire.

Moving on to GE timer white wire. This wire is necessary for the clock to run. This wire connects to Neutral wire which is usually white. You can test for Neutral by testing Hot wire to each white wire in box ... when tester comes on, that is Neutral.

If you do not have a white Neutral wire, then connect GE timer white wire to bare ground wire. This is not code, but it will work fine until you hire electrician to run Neutral into box.

Add comment and say if this is freshly installed timer, of if timer worked before.

My et103c will not manually or electronically turn off my pool pump.

Copy following link to identify timer and download manual:
Unknown if this is new installation, or old installation that stopped working.
Check battery. The timer requires a battery. Located below the buttons.
ET103C digital electronic timer is discontinued but some folks still sell on ebay... selling possibly used timer. Timer has 1 year limited warranty from date of manufacture.
Timer has error code messages... if you receive no error code, then battery could be problem.
Line noise can cause timer not to function, such as fluorescent lights on same circuit etc.
ET103C clock mechanism is 120Volt 60 Hz. If pump and circuit are 208-240Volt, or 277V etc then this timer is not best choice unless neutral wire is available..
Add a comment and describe situation in more detail.

The display is not working on the EJ500;

The display is powered by 2 LR44 batteries.

Replace batteries and then reset current time and day.
Programs should remain without needing to be reprogrammed.

If battery does not restore function of display, try resetting timer.
Once timer is reset, programs are deleted.

If reset does not work, then replace timer.
EJ500 comes with 1 year limited warranty.

Purchased this timer (Woods Digital Timer Cat. No. 59203) this time last year to run my Christmas decorations. It work like a charm. Now setting up decorations this year and nothing shows on the display...

Woods 59203 manual:

If this is not your timer, add a comment or look through Woods page

Most of the plug-in digital-programmable timers have rechargeable battery.
Some have a AAA battery that is replaceable, but most do not.
59203 has rechargeable battery.
Battery is not replaceable.

Plug timer into wall for 1/2-1 hour.
If display does not show, then battery did not recharge.
Either timer is broken or wall outlet does not have electricity

On my intermatic HB88RC,I replaced the battery because it was dead and now it shows 44:44 on the display can this be reset?

Press hour until hour for program1 ON shows
Press MIN until minute for program1 ON shows.

We have 3 Intermatic TB121C timers. 2 of them stopped working yesterday; the switch will no longer turn the lights on or off. We were not using the timer function at this time,just the switch. The display...

Yes, replacing the batery is each unit should get them working correctly again. The way these Intermatic timer switches work is that the battery actually operates the switching function to turn it OFF/ON. So once the battery goes dead, the switch won't operate properly.

You may have to reprogram your timer too, since some models lose their memory, once the battery goes dead. There are some new versions of Intermatic timers that use a semiconductor to hold the programming even in the event of a power loss or removal and replacement of the battery. (just an FYI for future reference).

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
