Hello Terry. Which GE digital timer do you have?
Copy following link to identify timer, and download manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html

Reset timer using reset button.
If timer has no voltage, then check outlet.
Check circuit breaker.
Check that light bulb is good.
If timer is plug-in type, then test outlet with circuit analyzer. Try timer in different outlet with different light.

SOURCE: How to set start time on timer raindrip r672c

The start time on these style of timers is whenever you set it. So if you want it to run at night it needs to be set at night, e.g. turn to off/reset, then at 10pm go set to the freq. and duration desired, then it will run at 10pm. Also note this timer waits a full cycle to run the first time after it is set, e.g. if today you set it to run weekly, the first time will be next week.

Leave the breaker off, remove the wires from the timer and just connect them. then turn the power on. Unless you have a short somewhere, the lights should come on. What you have just done is made the breaker your switch. If the breaker kicks you know to keep looking for a short as it is not the timer. Regards, Joe

SOURCE: I just installed a GE Smart Digital Timer. After

Timer wiring instructions shown on following page:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15071

You connected the white wire and red wire together, and that is why lights are clicking on-off.
I test timers and have done this intentionally during testing.
Follow instructions shown on link above, and GE timer will work correctly.
Same wiring applies to Tork, Swilight, Utilitec, Woods, Leviton, Intermatic non-battery operated timers.
Instructions are different for Aube, Brinks, UPM and Intermatic battery operated

I bought a utilitech three outlet outdoor timer and cannot get it to set. Now I cannot seem to find the instructions that came with it. Where can I download the instructions?


I bought one also but am taking it back today as I am not satisfied with the performance and the internal battery dies losing all programming. The instructions below are word for word from the manual but not all that clear. Since I can't post the diagram from http://www.thencc.com/westinghouse/LS/Instruction/T28499_TimerManual.pdf (if I can post links here), I substituted words in the "Set Mode" section instead. This is for the Utilitech 0149289 model and also applies to the Westinghouse and Stanley equals. Good luck.

I answer questions for free.
I know timers and electrical devices, and have tested most of the brands.
You posted under the Woods 7-day timer 59018 or 59028.
Here is the manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Woods-59018-59028.pdf

There are several programmable timers today that look like Woods, and each brand has different programming.

If you do not have Woods, add a comment and I will walk through programming your brand

1) You have the clock set correctly which implies the wiring is correct. Good job!
2) Programming review:
Each program requires ON time to be set, and then OFF time to be set
For example you set Program1 ON 5:00PM for ALL days.
And then you set Program1 OFF 11PM for ALL days.

3) Programming steps:
Press PROG button until Timer 1 ON appears on display
Use Hour button to set 5 PM
Use MIN button to set :00
Default selects ALL days
(If you want other days, press DAY button until display shows correct block of days)
Press PROG button again to save Program1 ON

4) Now for Program1 OFF

5) To set Program1 Off
Press PROG button until Timer 1 OFF shows in display.
Use Hour button to set 11 PM
Use MIN button to set :00
Default selects ALL days
(If you want other days, press DAY button until display shows correct block of days)
Press PROG button again to save Program1 OFF

6) Program 1ON and Program1 OFF have been set ... so press the CLOCK button to return to current time.
If you want to set another program, press PROG button until Timer 2 ON displays

7) After setting programs, press Clock button so current time shows.

8) The manual shows one more thing ... if you program the timer during the hours 5-11pm, and the timer should be ON during those hours, you have to 'tell' the timer to turn ON by pressing the manual override ... after that the timer will operate normally.

If you need more assistance, add a comment.

I'm having trouble setting this item. I can get it to come on, but it won't turn off at the set time. What am I doing wrong? Thanks, Janene


I don't have a Woods 59112 Manual
Here's link to Woods 49063 manual aka Woods TD1000 aka Noma TD1000
If manual is same/similar as your manual, then read solution given below
If solution below is incorrect, the write out your instructions ... I found that writing out instructions makes things clear.

4153f0e.jpg


Solution:
I think you have set ON time but did not set corresponding OFF time
Below is whole programming layout for you to read through
The important thing is to look at the display while programming
For example, lets say you are setting ON time for PROG1
For ON time, the display shows 3 things:
-display shows PROG in upper left corner
-display shows the number 1 to right of time
-display shows the word ON to the right of the number 1

Now you want to set OFF time for PROG1

For OFF, the display shows 3 things:
-display shows PROG as before
-display shows 1 as before
-display has changed and shows the word OFF to right of number 1


Here's how to set Woods TD1000 timer

Plug in timer to see if battery will recharge. Display shows when battery is charged. No display, then timer is no good.

TD-1000 timer has 8 on-off functions per 24-hour day

Timer has 5 buttons + reset:
TIME MODE PROG HOUR MIN

Press and hold TIME > use Hour to set hour, Min to set minute
Release Time button ... correct time should show

Program: Capacity for 8 on-off times per day

ON and number 1 are displayed on left
Use hour and minute button to set ON time

Press PROG to confirm
Now, OFF and number 1 are displayed
