Noma timer e250981

If lights are flashing, then photo eye might be exposed to too much light, causing photoeye electronics to think it's daytime, and so lights go off.
But then it's dark, and photoeye turns lights on again.
The cycle repeats all night because 2-4-6-8 hour off setting starts over each time lights turn on.
Or maybe timer is defective.

Copy following link to help identify timer:

I test timers.
Commercial grade timers last many years.
Noma is a brand name apparently used by many different manufacturer's to package products, and might be the 2nd line timer from Woods.
Don't expect timer to last more than year or two... maybe 6 months.
Copy following link for general troubleshoot if you have timers fail frequently, it might be electrical problem:
Open links above, then add a comment and say which timer you have and what specific problem is encountered

How do you set the timer

You posted under Woods outdoor timer:
See this timer and other similar types to identify your timer for sure
If this is not your timer, look at other timers on the page and then add a comment, and I will post instructions for another timer.

Generally this type of timer each set the same way:
Timer tuns ON automatically at dusk
Use dial to set 4 possible options:
Set dial to Off , the timer is always OFF
Set dial to ON, the timer is always ON
Set dial to Dusk-Dawn, the timer is ON at dusk, OFF at dawn
Set dial to 2,4,6,8 hours, the timer is ON at dusk, lights OFF 2,4,6,8 hours later

You can also take advantage of fixya phone support.
Fixya expert will walk you through the steps for a price.
