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.

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.

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

2) Check that battery is operable,
Move selector switch to ON position.
Check that each program has ON and OFF times set.
Check that each ON time has same days of operation as OFF time.
To delete programs, hold down MODE button and press Prog button.
Check outlet has correct polarity using circuit analyzer.
Try power strip on different outlet.
Check load rating of timer matches type of load being controlled.
This timer might not work for CFL inductive loads, try with ordinary light bulb.

Problem of Utilitech digital 8 outlet power strip timer


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.

I have a Utilitech one outlet light timer and I can't get it to work! I've never had a problem with a light timer; they're pretty straightforward in how to use them. I set the current time,...


Thank you for including model number.
TM01DHBL is typical analog timer with 1/2 hour segments located around edge of dial.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-set-timers.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59366

There are no repairs for defective timer: Here are suggestions.
1) Locally purchased timer has longer warranty period since you can buy same timer later and return defect in new package.
2) Top of timer has slide switch. Most analog timers have 2-or-3 position switch that offers override capability. Set some segments, move slide switch each direction, and then manually rotate timer dial clockwise two full revolutions to watch how lamp turns on-off.
If lamp does not turn on-off with switch in at least one of the slide-switch positions, then timer is suspect.
3) Always a good policy to test outlets with cheap circuit analyzer to check for electrical abnormalities that can affect timer electronics.
Since this is mechanical timer with simple electric clock motor, chances are that reversed polarity will not immediately affect timer.
4) Put timer on a different outlet, controlling a different load, and see if problem is the same.
5) Make sure segments are pulled all the way up.

My power strip, that I paid good money for about 7 years ago, is now vibrating and making a noise during the night time. Obviously, this is when it is not in use and does not seem to have the problem...


Question posted under analog power strip.
Analog timer has small clock motor.
When the plastic motor gears wear down, the clock begins to make noise.
Might not hear the noise when TV is turned on.

To get analog timers to last longer, be sure to keep timer in dust-free environment so nothing clogs the gears.
I don't know how to take apart this timer without breaking it.

I have completed the setup of my Day-Timer Mwave Tx12626x Timex Electronic 7 Day Timer. I turned on my television, then plugged it from the outlet, then plugged it into the timer. The TV will not turn on...


Open following link to identify your timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#Timex

1) Don't expect the timer to turn on the TV picture.
I have my TV plugged into power strip.
Each night the power strip is off. When power strip resumes next day, the TV is READY to be turned on with the remote control. The picture does not pop up when the power strip goes on.
Same is true for timer.
Try your power strip and see if picture turns on after power strip is turned off-on.
Timer will work same as on-off switch on power strip.

2) Is the power strip interfering with timer?
Plug timer directly into wall outlet and see what happens.
Add a comment and let others know what happened.

3) Battery: Timer requires 2-hours for initial battery charge.
Battery back-up protects programs when power is off.
I don't know if battery is made for repeated on-offs if you turn off power strip each night.
These batteries are not replaceable however timer has 1 year limited warranty.

4) Plug lamp into timer and see if timer operates lamp. This will say if TV electronics are interfering with timer operation.

5) Load: This timer says it is for appliances, which implies it should be rated typical 15A 1800 watt
