How can the orbit mdoel 57894 be progrmed for multiple start times?

The product manual is confusing... how do you set 1-5 am and 2-12 pm and 3-5 pm? The manual says to press program button to choose A B or C programs, but does not give steps for programming or when to press enter to confirm setting... or say which position the dial should be in when programming.

57894 lets you program separately for each station...turn dial to Run Time and use arrow keys to select a station. Press enter or arrow keys to advance to next station.
57894 offers 'select a station', 'pick days of the week or interval between watering for that station', 'duration of watering for that station'. But picking days of the week is not the same as setting exact times 1-5 am and 2-12 pm.
The dial is set to auto for programs to operate..
Don't forget to activate battery located top right on face of timer.

So the 57894 has more options than a 24-hour analog sprinkler timer that repeats same cycle each day with 14-day-skipper.

Find manual for woods 59028 programmable timer switch

1) Set current time:
Press reset button to clear all programs , display should flash 12:00 AM Monday
Press and hold CLOCK button.
Press Hour, minute and day buttons until current hour minute and day display.
Release Clock button.
Next step is to program the timer
Example shows how to turn on at 5PM each day and turn off at 11 PM each day.
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. Minimum on-off set time is 1 minute.
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.

Ok i got a timer from glode but i dont know the model. so what can i said i got a push button in front and when i push it a letter f with the number 0 to 9 appeares. after that the letter r and d whit the...

1) Good clues on description: It's a dawn-to-dusk timer.
F is always ON or always OFF.
O is always OFF or always ON.
1 thru 9 is timer turns ON at dusk and turns OFF 1 to 9 hours later.
D is ON at dusk and OFF at dawn.
R is probably timer turns ON immediately then turns OFF 1 to 9 hours later.
Best guess: At 8 pm you press button until R9 displays, and then timer will turn ON each day at 8pm and OFF each day at 5am.

2) Open following links to find same-similar timer and check which one matches your product.

I have both plugs in the yellow outlet and trying to put them on automatic setting and it wont do it. I need the light to be on at 5am to 11pm and it is not automatically doing it. What do i need to do to...

1) View Zilla product and manuals at following link:

2) Zilla is aquarium timer, and astronomic-type timer, and 2-channel timer, that breaks 24-hour day into strict night and day settings.

3) Manual says: both yellow and blue outlets cannot be on at the same time
Yellow outlets are daytime hours.
Blue outlets nighttime hours.
If you have analog timer, daytime hours show on dial with dark background.

4) You need to plug into both blue and yellow outlets to set times that run continuously from 5am to 11pm.

5) To solve problem might require different timer altogether.
Link posted above shows different Utilitec, Woods, Westek, and GE power strips models that might suit your exact purpose better.
