I need a night light timer that I can set to be on for 50 minutes and off for 10 minutes and repeat this every hour for 24 hours.


1) If you have programmable timer, then it would require 24 ON and 24 OFF settings, with down-to-the minute programming.
1 ON for each hour.
1 OFF for each hour.
Following link shows Grasslin 50-60 Hz 230Volt din rail timer with 50 memory slots. 16 amp at 230 volts
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/talento_371_372_371_mini_plus_data.pdf

2) If you have 24 hour mechanical timer with dial, it would need 24 ON trippers and 24 off trippers with down-to-the minute schedule.
No timer has that capability.

3) There is C8800 series cycle timer. 120-240Volt 60Hz for US market. 20 amp at 120volts, or 20 amp at 240Volt. Chose 1 hour cycle, then insert 100 trippers and leave 20 blank spaces.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/027-C8800-sprinkler-cycle-timer.pdf

4) There are percentage cycle timers.
For example CT2000. Rated 120Volts 60 Hz for US market.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/CT2000_sell-sheet-with-wiring.pdf
Select 1 hour cycle, and 16% or 84% percentage to choose ON or OFF

1 Answer

Timer that has a 20 minutes interval up to 1 hour


More information is needed.
For example, a) what voltage timer is needed, b) what Load are you controlling and c) how does timer mount?

Easiest solution is 60 minute repeat cycle timer.
Timer knobs are adjusted, or the timer dial rotates once per hour and 20 minute timing cycle repeats each hour. The cycle repeats 24-7-365.
If you want the cycle to operate certain hours of the day, another 24 hour timer can be installed in-line.

1) Tork 8600 cycle timer, or Tork ACT percent cycle timer

2) Intermatic CT2000 percent cycle timer, C8800 cycle timer

The manual timer in the picture has 120 minutes on it . the discription says it's a 240 minute timer. what is it?


Timer is not identified.
Add a comment with in-focus photo of timer posted on flickr, or describe all details about the timer for possible help.

240 minute timer could be a cycle timer that repeats timing cycle each 4 hours.

Tork 8000 series cycle timers have 6 minute to 1 hour
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#8000
Intermatic cycle timers range from 10 minutes to 4 hours
http://www.intermatic.com/products/ec%204%20layer/mechanical%20time%20switches/specialty%20time%20switches/c8800%20short%20range%20cycle%20timers.aspx
Adjustable cycle timers, percentage cycle timers have variable time settings that span 1 to 24 hours.

Can not set up my hydrofarm timer to come on for 1 min and off for 5 min.


You posted next to a photo showing hydrofarm analog timer with segments located on dial face.
Open following link for general look at setting analog timers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-set-timers.html

Analog timers have a minimum set time of 15 minutes because the trippers-or-pins-or-segments are made certain width.
If you want 1 minute ON and 5 minutes OFF, you need digital timer.
Most digital timers have minimum set time of 1 minute.
But digital timers have limited number of set points per day unless you get into heavy-duty Intermatic timer like the ET70115 timer with 100 or so set points.

If you want 1 minute on and then 5 minutes off, and want to repeat that same cycle over and over throughout the day and night, you would need 240 set points.
Or check out 120V adjustable cycle timers.
https://www.grainger.com/Grainger/cycle-timers/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hbZ1z0q55s

If you want the cycle timer to operate certain hours only, then put ordinary 24-hour timer between the cycle timer and the load.

I have intermatic TN311 MODEL TIMER IDK HOW 2 WORK I WANT IT TO COME ON AND OFF FOR 15 MIN EVERY HOUR FOR 12 ORS A DAY IS THAT POSSIBLE AND HOW


Open following link to identify TM311 timer:
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-TN311C-Heavy-Grounded-Timer/dp/B00002N5FO

1) First of all, you would need more turquoise 107TN222 ON and red 107TN221 OFF trippers.

2) BUT big problem is that TN311 time dial is divided into half-hour segments, so minimum on-off is probably 1 hour since it takes 2 trippers for on-off cycle, and width of 2 trippers is same width as 1 hour.

3) Open following link for plug-in timers with 15 minute segments shows Woods 49664 & Stanley 31192 & Sylvania SA110
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#49664

4) Notice the 49664 dial, that each hour is represented by 4 segments. This says timer on-off period is 15 minutes.

To set this timer, you would pull up all segments around the dial, and then push down 1 segment for each hour that you want timer to turn on for 15 minutes.

5) TN311 has 3 prong grounded outlet, Woods 49664 has 2-prong outlet.

6) Stanley 31192 timer and Sylvania SA110 have 3-prong grounded outlets and 15 minute intervals.

7) You cannot accomplish 15 minutes intervals for 12 periods a day with programmable digital timer.
Most digital timers allow 1 minute program times, but are limited to 6 or 7 programs, and not the 12 separate on-off periods needed for your project.

How to set oven timer on a GE electric stove


that is not a problem. I copied the instructions straight from the manual which you can also review by clicking here.
Using the clock and timer.
To Set the Clock The clock must be set to the correct time of day for the automatic oven timing functions to work properly. The time of day cannot be changed during a timed baking or self-cleaning cycle. Press the CLOCK pad. Press the HOUR and MIN + or – pads to set the time of day. Press the START pad. Make sure the clock is set to the correct time of day. To Set the Timer Press the KITCHEN TIMER ON/OFF pad. Press the HOUR and MIN + or – pads until the amount of time you want shows in the display. The maximum time you can enter in minutes is 59. Cooking times more than 59 minutes should be changed to hours and minutes. For example, enter 90 minutes as 1 hour, 30 minutes. If you make a mistake, press KITCHEN TIMER ON/OFF and begin again. Press the START pad. After pressing the START pad, SET disappears; this tells you the time is counting down, although the display does not change until one minute has passed. Seconds will not be shown in the display until the last minute is counting down. When the timer reaches :00, the control will beep 3 times followed by one beep every 6 seconds until the KITCHEN TIMER ON/OFF pad is pressed. The 6-second tone can be canceled by following the steps in the Special features of your oven control section under Tones at the End of a Timed Cycle. The timer is a minute timer only. The timer does not control oven operations. The maximum setting on the timer is 9 hours and 59 minutes. To Reset the Timer If the display is still showing the time remaining, you may change it by pressing the KITCHEN TIMER ON/OFF pad, then press the HOUR and MIN + or – pads until the time you want appears in the display. If the remaining time is not in the display (clock, delay start or cooking time are in the display), recall the remaining time by pressing the KITCHEN TIMER ON/OFF pad and then pressing the HOUR and MIN + or – pads to enter the new time you want. To Cancel the Timer Press KITCHEN TIMER ON/OFF pad twice.

If you need further assistance follow up with a comment and please let me know and i will be glad to assist you further. Thanks, Midwest-tek

I want a programmable timer that can, eg, switch on a single phase electric motor for 10 seconds every hour. It may be 9 secs or 11 secs.


You need a programmable interval timer.

http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#ET70
Intermatic and Tork make digital timers with interval settings that can be set for specific short-duration with 1 minute minimum.
(Or set to pulse bell ringing with 1-127 seconds.
10 minutes is 600 seconds)
For example ET70115 single-channel timer.
The timer would be set for 24-hour operation, and then programmed for Pulse, and then set timer with 24 programs, with 1 program for each hour.

Mechanical cycle timers from Intermatic:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#cycle
1) Talento 1 hour cycle timer/ each tripper represents 1.25 minutes
2) Model C8835/ each tripper represents 15 seconds.
To operate these timers certain hours of the day, add another timer in-line.
The in-line timer could be digital, but remember digital timers are not protected from power surge and tend to have more problems, and do not have replaceable clock motors and trippers.
