Hi VacuumRepair,

At this time you cannot enter new products yourself. However, if you will send me a list of the products you would like added to the site, I will pass them along to the staff.

I can not reset my Timex timer . The timer stopped working after a month and the instructions to not help in programing these timers

The instructions will help quite a lot right now:

1) Typical Timex manual says to re-set timer, press MODE and PROG buttons together.
Compare this information with your instructions.

2) Look on instruction sheet for timer model number, and then add a comment with your model number so I can identify timer manual and possibly post answer that fits your product.

3) Look on instruction sheet for company information.
Timex timers come with standard 1 year limited warranty:
Following phone might work: 1-800-919-3101

4) Scan your instruction sheet into jpg format and then add a comment with link to that jpg, then I can give you best answer for that specific timer.

5) Buy another timer, and return broken timer in new package.

6) Use circuit analyzer to test outlet for line noise and ground fault that affect timer electronics.

7) Buy another brand of timer altogether:

Can't set up my brink's digital timer model 44-1040. HELP!

We're always ready to help resourceful do-it-yourselfer

I do not have instructions for 44-1040 timer, and web search shows many companies selling instructions, but a free answer will not pay for the purchase. Plus you may already have instructions.

That leaves 4 solid options:

1) Contact and request instruction pdf for product.
Then post your pdf on your website, and add a comment to this thread with web address of your free manual so so I can download it for free and help others with same problem.

2) If you already have instructions, you can scan them into jpg format and then post a photo using instructions below, so I can read manual alongside you.

3) If you have the instructions, add a comment and say exactly what part is causing difficulties, and I will work alongside you to solve problem.

4) Add a comment and describe timer in detail, and I will find same-similar instructions if possible.

I have a basic timer with no pins. Can't figure out how to use it.

You posted under GE 15004 timer.

To make sure we are discussing same timer, see image of product at Jasco:
If this is not your timer, then add a comment.

I do not have a manual for this timer.
Jasco has not posted manual for 15004 timer.

Looking at timer, it appears as if the following instructions apply.
Since you have the product and instruction sheet, add a comment if your knowledge of the details varies: Your contribution to the fixya community is helpful to others.

To set timer:
Rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with pointer.
Move red and green pins to hours you want timer to turn on-off.
Pins are non-removable.
