The Outdoor Digital Timer 15117 product package says not to install or use the product for more than a 90 day period per year. Why?

I want to run a pump in a small fountain with this and want to run it year round. Why can't I?
Asked by: Anonymous
FDCarter, The message you are describing is a mandatory UL Listed Warning. Plug-in Outdoor products are only suggested for temporary installations and short periods of time. If you are looking to have this installed for longer than a 90 day time period, it would be necessary to purchase a hardwired timer for your installation to ensure a long-term safe installation. Outdoor hardwired timers such as the GE 15132 (Store Sku# 531953) are designed for more permanent installations out of doors.

I had a new outside outlet installed by an electrician but this timer will not pulg into the outlet any ideas?

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi Maria, The GE 15117 is manufactured with the standard plug size for any typical residential plug. If the timer can be installed in another outlet such as inside of the home or another outside outlet, then you can verify that the newly installed plug is experiencing some sort of difficulty and it would be necessary to contact the manufacturer of the plug or an electrician for assistance.

Customer Reviews

15-Amp 7-Day Dual-Outlet Plug-In Heavy-Duty Timer is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 59.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great Great timer... incomplete instructions. I read all the poor reviews and wondered what gives, would they continue to ship a faulty or inferior product? or is it that people are not programming it correctly? While after having the same "does not work in auto mode" experience people report here I called the customer service and found that the instructions fail to mention that the outlet is in the off position by default and will not turn on untill the next programmed "on" start time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great timer This is great but a little confusing...alot of people are saying they had problems with the auto working and so was I but I had my husband do it and it worked fine. I was just doing it wrong and I think alot of the people complaining were doing the same as me. I had to turn it off manually once and it started doing the same thing where the auto was staying on but I reset it.... first set the clock, than day, and than programmed it for the same time everyday (for all seven days) and than put it on auto, plugged it back in and it worked great again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing since sliced bread The best timmer I've ever owned. The internal AA battery makes it easy to program while you sit in your recliner watching TV. Program up to seven On-Off cycles if necessary. Times on and off are right on the money. I've bought timmers for three time the price and didn't get near the results. I highly recommend this timer, it's well worth the money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Terrible instructions! Three different adults attempted to program the device according to the instructions. I finally got it to work a week later by ignoring the guide and trying my own method. The product works; the accompanying directions should be an embarrassment! I would recommend the product if you are willing to program it on your own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for outdoor lights I bought one of these two weeks ago to control part of our outdoor lighting. It worked so well that I just bought a second one to control the other 1/2 of our display. Now we can be totally in sync.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I've used mine for a couple of winters now to turn on a space heater in the master bath / dressing room area in the mornings. Works like a champ, re-programming is definitely easy enough, I love these things. Beats the heck out of the cheap pin type timers that I've had nothing but problems with. I'm guessing most of these problems are programming related anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EASY TO PROGRAM I am thrilled with my purchase of the GE dual outlet timer. I was hesitant when I saw it, because it looked complicated...but, it is VERY easy to program and works like a charm. Thank you GE for this product...I am now able to have lights on my light pole AND my tree near the house. Definitely would recommend buying this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awsome product Bought to operate the engine heater on my diesel, set 4 different start and stop times. No problems if set up right, read the destruction and it will function correctly. Would defantly buy another if need be. AAA backup is a life saver also if the power goes out.
