SOURCE: Timer light flashing after power outage. Pushed

THIS IS MY STANDARD ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION==SOMETIMES PEOPLE DO NOT TRY THE EASY POSSIBLE REASON--IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS LET ME KNOW---IF THE ANSWER TOLD YOU something you did not know--rate the solution----

ONLY 1 of 2 things can cause this problem----

First thing to do is remove front speaker grill--it should pull out and is secured with plastic pegs--behind it you will find an inspection plate---

Notice the one or two pairs of wires coming from the front keyboard of the set---remove the inspection plate and follow the wires to the right--you can unplug both plugs(most have two and they are marked with letters and different sizes so you cannot get them wrong)

The idea here is to remove the front keyboard with its reset button etc from the circuit---You will still be able to try to turn the set on with the remote---

These sets have a Receiver that is called a DM board--(large metal box to the left as you look from the back) and if the power goes out the green light will blink for about 70 seconds and then go out---it is the Receiver booting up. It is called the DM board.

If disconnecting the keyboard allows the set to turn on--you have a bad reset switch and two choices---either operate the set only with the remote or to remove the front screen and get at the reset switch (it is tiny) and remove and/or replace it.

If disconnecting the keyboard does not restore the set to operation---the receiver is bad---there are 4 or more caps and some pico fuses that can fail in that unit---Mitsubishi no longer sells or repairs these--if it is bad and not the caps there is a company you can send the unit to and have it repaired--if you need to know their name let me know---

You can call them and get a quote for repairing the receiver.


Let me know what more information you need--I am here to help.

Sylvania SA170 manual shows that timer can automatically turn on lights at sunset time, just enter your phone area code: Timer has to wired first and power on. Manual has long list of instructions starting on page 2.

How to wire timer:
SA170 replaces on-off wall switch that has 2 wires + ground
Timer has 3 wires + no ground wire
Wires that come off switch connect to Timer Blue & Black wires
Timer white wire connects with other white wires in box - if you do not have other white wires, connect to bare ground
If timer doesn't work, switch Blue and Black wires

I recently replaced my Intermatic EJ500 with a new unit, I noticed it works perfectly fine for one day then the batteries that control the timer drain completely the following day, what could it be?


Line voltage usually controls the timer functions when properly wired until a power outage occurs; then battery power takes over until utility power is restored. Should utility power be off for an extended period of time, eventually the battery will drain completely
Double check to make sure you wired your wall switch timer properly.
Make sure there are no loose wiring connections.
Even though you purchased a new replacement timer wall switch, it could be a manufacturer's defect.
Has your home electrical system experienced any signal spikes? Electronic components are very sensitive to impulse spikes/surges and can be damaged very easily.
If you are experiencing surges or spikes, perhaps investing in a whole house surge protection system (Intermatic IG series) would be the way to go as well. It'll protect all your electronic devices and appliances through-out the house.

Utilitech wall timer


Utilitec timers do not have replaceable batteries.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-LW60418.html
Older timer designs have batteries, while more modern timers have internal rechargeable battery that is integral with circuit board, and cannot be replaced. The battery holds memories in event of power outage, but current time must be reset if power is out for extended time.
If you have continual problems with failed timers, then have electrician friend run test on your power for spikes, shortages and surge that will cause timers and other non-hardened electronics to fail frequently. Also check for polarity and grounding issues. Also if you have motors, other electronics and/or fluorescent lights on same circuit, this can cause interference.
Also check load limitations, and load on timer to make sure you are not exceeding the timer rating. For example using timer to control motor when timer is rated for non-inductive incandescent loads.
Reset timer using reset button, and then re-program. Buy another timer at Lowes and return defect in new package for refund.
Buy Intermatic ST01C timer. This timer uses CR2 battery, and timer electronics operate separately from electric line. Rated for any load: motors, cfl bulbs, led, incandescent, etc.

I have a Malibu transformer 8100-0200-01, all the lights stay on no matter what the switch position is in, even off. I have unplugged the unit and waited trying to reset but problem still exists. Any...


The digital transformer has 5 year warranty.
Otherwise plug power pack into cheap wall timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/Malibu-power-pack-stopped-working.html

Don't buy digital. This type timer can be easily knocked out with simple power outage.
Also bulb outages and cord problems and moisture and probably direct sun can affect digital more easily than analog.

Intermatic ej500 fuse


Why did fuse blow?
Is timer under-rated for load on line?
Do wire size and breaker size match?
EJ500 is rated incandescent-only with maximum 500 watts, with temp range from 32 to 104 F, maximum distance 100' from load, and timer has 1 year warranty against defects.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire.html

Try resetting timer.
This will delete both programs and current time settings.
Hold down on-off button, and press and release reset button.
Keep holding on-off button until display changes, and 12:00 is flashing.

If timer will not reset, try changing battery.

Simple power outages, and blown fuses can cause power surge that will knock out timers. This is a common problem, and resetting timer can usually solve problem.
Timers like outdoor power pack, and analog plug-in timers do not have reset button and can easily fail after ordinary power outage.

I have a Utilitech In Wall Digital Timer Lowes Item #: 141224 | Model #: LW60418, purchased from Lowes. I've lost the instructions and can't figure out how to set the timer after a power...


Open following link for Utilitec timer manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-LW60418.html

This timer should have a back-up capacitor so that programming is kept in memory during power outage.
Power outage is known cause of timer failure. When power turns on, the surge knocks out electronics.
People writing to fixya report electronic timers and electronic water heater controls stop working after power outage. Probably many other electronic devices are affected too, but that would be out of my specialty.
Troubleshoot says 'in case of operational failure, press reset button to clear all settings and restart.'
If timer has failed, buy another from Lowes and return defect in new package.

And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

I misplaced my instructions for my timer and need to re-set it after a power outage. Can you please send me the instructions? Thanks.


Question posted under Intermatic ST01C, but Timer is not 100% identified since ST01C is battery powered, and should not lose programming or stop working with ordinary power outage.
Most digital timers have a battery or capacitor back-up for power outage.
Add a comment with description of timer buttons, or open link below to see most brands of in-wall timer.

Open following link for to identify Intermatic ST01C and Ei600 and download instructions:
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#battery
ST01C timer has a battery backup. Power outage will NOT cause battery-powered display to fail, but power outage and power surge can cause any electronic timer to fail.
So either the battery went dead, or power surge ruined timer, or you don't have ST01C timer.

If ST01c display is not showing, then replace battery and then reprogram current time -or- manually re-set timer and then reprogram timer.

WOODS 59018 TIMER WIREING CORRECT INSTALLED WITH POWER OFF NETURAL GROUND UP TO CODE LOAD /LINE PROPER.NEW OUT OF BOX WON'T RESET. STEP 1 LAMPS LOAD SIDE GOOD. RETIRED CONSTRUCTION ELECTRICIAN


I don't have answer for defective timer. Buy another timer if everything below checks out:
59018 7-day timer has limited 1 year warranty, and appears to be made by Tork
Timer is for 120Volt single-pole only.
Rated for 1000 watt tungsten, 8A ballast, 1/4 HP
Push reset button with toothpick > not necessary to press-and-hold other button to accomplish reset.
After reset, 12:00 am Monday should display.
Programs are deleted. Reprogram timer.

To check, change and delete specific programming, press PROG key until selected program displays, and then set new programming >>> or press-and-hold MODE button and press PROG button again to delete selected program.

Timer has non-replaceable 30-day carryover battery and does not lose programming after power outage, and will retain programs until battery is depleted.

Review wiring:
Hot to timer black.
Neutral to timer white.
Load to timer red.
Ground to timer green.

Lights will blink if timer red and timer white are connected to load together.
Timer will not function if timer black and red wires are reversed. Display will not show.

Manual for this timer says to reset timer when encountering a problem.
Just press reset button for 3-4 seconds, and then re-program timer using instructions on following page.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html

I have tested this timer, and it is a good timer with typically difficult programming because of Astro option, but all these in-wall timers have 1 year limited warranty.
You can buy another one at Lowes, and then return defective one in new package if necessary.
