Several things can go wrong with programmable timers:
1) Circuit is not clean. Check circuit using circuit analyzer from electric department in home center.
2) Programs not set correctly. Each program needs ON time setting and OFF time setting.
3) Conflicts in programming. For example program1 ON is for MO but program1 OFF is for all days of week. Or program1 says ON at 4 and OFF at 5, but program2 says opposite, or overlaps.
4) MODE is not set to AUTO. Press MODE button until AUTO displays.
5) Manual override is MODE button. If you have MODE set to ON, then timer programs will not operate, and Load is ON full time.
6) Load being operated is turned OFF or not operable. In your case the Load seems to be ON.
7) Defective product. I test timers, 4-6% arrive defective. Buy another one at Lowes for 19.95 and take back defective one.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

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.
