I have a germanian timer that its manual is in

I don't know this timer. I found one image that shows a 5-button timer that I'm not familiar with.

1) Add a comment and describe timer in detail and I will try to match description with my files on timers.

2) Look at following link to see if your timer appears, and then add a comment and I will answer.

3) When I have a manual in foreign language, which is frequently, I use google translate.

How to use google translate for timer manuals:
a) Enter entire sentences into translator and it recognizes the language. Then select language you want to translate into. Then press translate button.

b) Copy-paste translation into a document so you can read the information several times while working to set timer.

c) With patience, you can figure out the timer, and then change your document wording so you have digital copy of manual for your records.

Turn your manual into cash:
d) Post your english-version manual on your website, or on Imgur.com. Add a comment on fixya and tell us the web location of your manual. Then others with same question will have answer. Some will be able to get answer for free, others will pay for the answer.

e) Post your manual for sale on your website, and others can buy it and sell it on their website to other folks who are willing to pay for answer.

f) Join fixya as an expert and sell your manuals and knowledge to other folk.

g) Sell timer on your website, and advertise english/german instructions.

Add a comment for more free help.
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.

Setting the clock on a brinks timer 44-1011

I finally found the instructions for the Brinks timer 44-1011 and they work.
    • 1*Press and hold the OK button for 4 seconds. Hour Display flashes.
    • 2*Press +/MANUAL or - to select the hour. Press OK to confirm.
    • 3*Minute display will now flash. Press +/MANUAL or - to select the minute. Press OK to confirm.
    • 4*Press MENU to exit the time setting mode. Now the timer is in clock mode.
    • PROGRAM SETTING NOTE: This timer can be set up for up to 2 different programs. We will use PROG 1 for this example, however these steps can be repeated for any of the 2 programs. To cycle through the individual programs use the +/MANUAL or - after pressing MENU in step one until the desired PROG "#" is flashing. To clear a program setting hit the RECALL button when you have the program selected.
    • 1*Press MENU button, PROG 1 "ON" will flash, press OK.
    • 2*Hour will flash. Cycle with +/MANUAL or - to desired hour, press OK.
    • 3*Minutes will flash. Cycle through minutes +/MANUAL or - to desired minute, press OK.
    • 4*Program will be flashing again. Press +/MANUAL to get to PROG 1 "OFF" blinking, press OK.

    • 1*In clock mode, press RECALL to turn on or off the Daylight Saving Time.
    • 2*Turn on DLST, the below of LCD shows +1H. Time is adjusted by adding one hour.
    • 3*Turn off DLST, +1H will disappear and LCD shows the real time. MANUAL OVERRIDE AND ALWAYS ON/OFF When in clock mode the +/MANUAL sign cycles through
    • 4 settings that serve as manual override. **ON - Indicates that the timer is in the ON mode, and will always be on regardless of the programmed setting. **AUTO ON - At this selection, the timer will come on regardless of the programmed setting, but it will follow the next programmed command. **OFF - Indicates that the timer is always off (i.e. the wall socket is turned off) **AUTO OFF - Indicates that the timer is in the OFF mode until the next programmed step that turns it ON.
    • NOTE: For normal timer function, the selection must be either "AUTO ON" or "AUTO OFF". RESET At any mode, press RESET for 5 seconds. All settings will be cleared, return to clock mode, 12:00 MO, AM, AUTO OFF will be shown on LCD
I hope this is helpful. It was a bear to find.

Pro logic hayward pool won't shut off pump

The pool timer control needs to be replaced completely. It seems that the timer may work but the relay is perhaps shorted or shunted. It can not be reasonable repaired, thus replacement is the only answer.
