Hi Hector.
You posted under ET171C8.
You have the timer in front of you, and whole manual cannot be repeated. So there are two options
1) Free option: Add a comment and say specifically where the programming is tricky. If you don't understand the buttons, or if display doesn't show, or if you can't find all days by pushing day button, or if you can't find the am pm choice.
2) Pay for fixya expert to walk you through each step via e-mail.

If display shows, then battery is correctly installed.

Instructions copied from manual:
1) RESET TIME SWITCH: Press the recessed RESET switch to reset the
microprocessor and delete any set point information which has been
programmed. NOTE: DO NOT press RESET after programming has
begun or you will lose all of your program information.
2) TO SET TIME AND DAY OF WEEK: Place the three position selector
in PROGRAM and the two position selector in CLK mode. Press the
HOUR, MINUTE and DAY buttons individually to select the current time
of day (12 hour AM/PM repeating) and the day of the week. Day 1 is
Sunday, day 2 is Monday, etc.
3) TO PROGRAM SET POINTS: Select PROGRAM mode with the three
position selector and OUTPUT mode with the two position selector.
Press the HOUR and MINUTE buttons separately to program the first set point time desired.
Press the DAY button to select the day the event is to occur.
Press the ON/OFF button to select an ON or OFF set point.
Press the ENTER button to enter that set point for the selected day.
Note that the ON or OFF indicator stops flashing only after pressing ENTER. If this set point is to occur for other days of the week, simply press the DAY button to select the next day then ENTER. Repeat for any additional days. Note that this allows you to utilize one set point for
any or all days of the week.
Then set timer to AUTO for programs to operate

What are the seven days of the week? They are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. But what do you call the other 358 days of the year?

They're also Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. These are the names of the seven days of the week. A year is fifty-two weeks and a day (two on leap years).

Hey guys, the 15079 GE timer has 20 on/off settings. Are they for the whole week?


The timer you mention 15079 does has 20 on/off settings that can be set during a 1 week period that will then repeat each week. For example Setting 1 could be to come ON on Monday at 5:00pm and turn OFF Monday at 11:00pm while setting 2 could be to turn ON on MWF at 3:00pm and OFF MWF at 3:30pm.

You can find all of the UPDATE GE Timer manuals at the manufactures website:

Intermatic EH10: I can't figure out how to set a schedule of Sun - Thurs, 8am on, 10pm off and Fri & Sat, 8am on, 11pm off. I tried every day of the week 8am on, 10pm off and Fri & Sat 8am on, 11pm...

The EH10 is 120V digital timer.
The timer offers the following days:
-All 7 days
-Monday thru Friday
-Saturday and Sunday
-Each individual day
-Blankday (day skipper)

If I understand your schedule:
You want
Program1 ON at 8am Sunday
Program1 OFF at 10pm Sunday
Program2 ON at 8am Monday thru Friday (with blankday on Friday)
program2 OFF at 10pm Monday thru Friday (with blankday on Friday)

Program3 ON at 8am Friday
Program3 OFF at 11pm Friday
Program4 ON at 8am Saturday
Program4 OFF at 11pm Saturday

I filled in the chart for you.
I left off the display.
I do not have this timer and don't know 100% how the display looks without buying the timer.


If you need more help on a specific step in the manual, add a comment and I will answer.
