Problem of Utilitech digital 8 outlet power strip timer

I am at time 9:58pm, and I program it to be on at 10:00pm and off at 10:02pm. But as soon as I finish programming and set mode to AUTO, it starts to be ON already, which is NOT yet within the time frame I set. Is it supposed to work that way?Or mine is a defective one? On the other hand, if I am at time 9:58pm, and set off time to 9:56pm, as soon as I set mode to AUTO, it turns off immediately. So I am not sure if 1) the timer makes CONSTANT comparison of current time with all programmed times to make decision, or 2) it ONLY does so on the programmed time points. My experiments above cannot draw conclusion to either 1) or 2).

Copy following link to identify exact timer, and download possible manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#striptimer

With this particular timer, press MODE and PRG button to clear timer programming.
When programming is complete, press CLK button to enter current time setting and end 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.

SOURCE: need instructions to set time for 8 outlet power Strip timer Utilitech

Copy following link to identify power strip timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#striptimer

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.

I need the English instructions for the Utilitech timer #0144506


I found a Utilitech timer at Lowes with the item number #0144506. The Utilitech model number for this timer is UTTNID001. If this is the correct timer, the manual is on the product page: https://www.lowes.com/pd/Utilitech-15-Amp-1-Outlet-Digital-Residential-Plug-in-Lighting-Timer/4740850 . Scroll down and expand the Guides & Documents section. The direct link is currently: http://pdf.lowes.com/useandcareguides/054732817825_use.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Utilitech 2 outlet timer - 0155671


No.
Each outlet has same on-off programming.
Utilitec does not make 2-channel timer.... and neither does any other consumer timer company... unless you buy a box timer like Intermatic ET 1100 or 1800 series etc 2-4-6-8-12 channel timers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#ET-series


To have 2 different programs from same outlet, then buy 2 bar timers that both fit same outlet, and then program each to suit need.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#bar

Many bar timers are 24-hour instead of 7-day.

Utilitech 0331645


Utilitec 0331645 is power strip timer.
Install AG13 battery into compartment back of timer, and display should show.
Evidently the timer is reset by removing battery, so if timer has malfunctioned, then replace battery.
Here is instruction manual:

Add a comment with specific part of programming that is confusing.
