    I have the same issue with this remote. I bought it SPECIFICALLY because of the sleep timer - my original remote button for Sleep broke. I love this remote - I actually was able to program every component including DirectTV on it (there's always a need to keep one of the remotes it seems).

    BUT, it doesn't help if the main purpose for the remote was for a sleep timer, and there is no sleep timer even mentioned anywhere in the manual! Urrrr.

With this particular timer, press MODE and PRG button to clear timer 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.

SunSmart 15312 - timer has power and will turn lights on/off manually but will not turn on/off automatically after setting program.

Sun Smart is new GE timer.

There is no repair for defective timer, except buy another at Home Depot and return defect in new package.
When I bought 15312 timer for testing, I found many packages at Home Depot were taped together as if people returned the timer. The large aluminum fin shows that timer is expected to get warm.
When testing the timer, the door stuck, and the timer seemed cheaply made. Intermatic brand timers are more robust at this time.
The instruction manual is not clearly written as could be, and timer requires a lot of button pushes for each setting.

Because the instruction manual is complex, requiring multiple button pushes for each setting, I suggest writing out the steps to make sure nothing is skipped over.

If lights turn on-off with override, then timer should be wired correctly.
Be sure to reset timer before programming.
Press setup button twice to begin programming.
Check programming for conflicts and overlaps that will cause timer not to function as expected.
For example selecting days of week. If program1 ON says turn on at 7:00 pm all days of week, and program1 OFF says off at 9:00 pm Tuesday.
Another point of confusion is Dawn-Dusk-Time. If you want timer to turn ON at 7:00, then select Time.

Do I set the GE timer # 15089 to Auto on or Auto off for it to be activated. I had it on Auto on however the light stayed on all the time.

I don't have repair for defective timer.
Open following link to identify timer and download manual:

Timer should be set to Auto ON for timer programs to run.
Auto OFF is temporary override, and timer resumes schedule at next set point.
ON is always ON
OFF is always OFF

If timer is not operating as expected:
Test outlet for correct polarity and electrical problems using cheap circuit analyzer from hardware store.
Timer programs can have conflicts. Make schedule before setting timer so there are no overlaps that cause timer not to function as expected.
Current time has not been set. Set current time including current day.
Set button has been accidentally pushed, and a number or CTD appear in display.
Timer needs to be reset to clear conflicting programming or error. Push reset button with paperclip and try programming again.
Timer is not able to handle intended load. All timers work for incandescent bulb. Connect timer to incandescent lamp and see if problem continues.
Timer is defective. Buy another timer from Home Depot and return defect in new package.

I have GE Model #15089 digital timer. I want to reset time to come on to 7:30 pm and turn off at 10:30 pm. It was previously coming on at 6:00 pm and off at 10:30 pm and working fine but when I tried...

The problem with answering questions where somebody cannot program a timer, or programming stopped working, is that expert doesn't know if timer is defective, or needs to be reset, or timer has conflicting programming, or if person has mis-read the instruction manual, or if wrong button sequence is being used, or if internal battery has gone bad, or if circuit has interference or loose wiring, or if light bulb burned out, and however expert guesses, the person asking question is unhappy because the timer still doesn't work and/or the manual still doesn't make sense.

I work with timers every day and suggest the following steps to get started:
Reset timer and try setting program again.
Write out steps in manual at point where timer doesn't seem to work.
Double-check that you are pushing correct buttons all the way down.
Make sure same days of operation are selected for ON and for OFF. For example if ON is set for all days, and OFF is set for Tuesday, then timer will not work as expected.
Reset timer and make sure there are no conflicting or overlapping programs, or timer will not work as expected.
Test outlet with cheap circuit analyzer from home center, try timer on different outlet, try timer on different Load, check that Load works when plugged into outlet without the timer.
Save some headaches listed above, and buy another 15089 at Home Depot and return defective one in new package.

I don't have the Manuel to program a WESTEK TE22DHB timer. Can you locate one or tell me how to program it?

Many timers are sold under different brand names with different numbers.
For example Westek TE06WHB is same as Woods 59377

Sometimes different timers are packaged under same number, for example Utilitec TE06WHBL is shipped as the old Woods TD1300.

GE and Utilitec sell the same timer with different numbers.
Westinghouse and Stanley and Utilitec and Woods overlap.

I got manuals for some, and can sometimes cross reference if you describe the timer.

1) take a minute and add a comment with description of button layout with button names, or describe the dial and switches. Be as detailed as possible.

2) Look through timers on following links and see if your timer shows:

Can't set the sleep timer

I have the same problem. Does anyone have a fix?

Cant get delay to turn off

Did you try pushing the delay button until it goes off? It's sort of like a sleep timer on a TV.
