Customer Questions & Answers

how to set the time on time off.

Asked by: lescannon
Start by pulling up the small tabs that go all the way around the outside edge of the wheel. Now. push down the tabs from the time you want the it on all the way to the time you want it off. Now rotate the dial until the arrow in the middle is pointing to the time of day in your area. You are done.

Why timer turn lights off after 3 hours later?

I set the timer from 5pm to 3 am. Why the timer turn lights off after 3 hours using? I have to reset everyday.
Asked by: Lee
Are you setting it correctly? The tabs should be DOWN from the 5 in the light area, going to the left, to the 3 in the dark area. Remember up is off and down is on. Then you must rotate the dial until the arrow in the center is pointing at the time it is right now.

How does the unit work?

I want to put it on at 7:30 PM and off at 2:00 AM
Asked by: Spouse

doesn't seem to work

this is the second one i have bought with the same problem, so i think i must be doing something wrong. i am trying to have the timer go on and off every thirty minutes. meaning off for30 and on for 30, all day and night. i understand about how to set the tabs, i have every other tab up. my issue is that timer never moves. if i set the time at 3:00, and have it on, it stays on, it never clicks over. it will still be 3:00 hours later. wherever i set the time, it stays there forever. what am i doing wrong?

15-Amp Outdoor Plug-In Mechanical Timer with 2 Grounded Outlets is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what its supposed to. I bought this timer to control my above ground pool filter. Ive had it for 2 years and it works perfect. The first one i bought stopped working after a week but Home Depot was great about exchanging for a new one, thats why Im giving it 4 out of 5 stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective product. Failed to work. First few days it would go on/off at random times. The sensor system was completely inaccurate. Never worked. Unfortunately I waited too long. Bieber I can't return in Home Depot. I don't recommend anyone getting this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little timer Bought two for my outside Christmas lights. Works great. Easy to set-up. No problems keeping time. Make sure the timer is mounted vertically with the outlets facing down to resist the weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Just was I was looking for. Needed outdoor 3 prong timers for two plugs. This was the only item I needed for these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buying a second one I would agree with previous review(s) that instructions were confusing. I will take it a step further and say the instructions are useless. However, once you figure out that you just need to lift two slots, that is pretty much it: 1. Set the dial to the current time. 2. Find the time slot you wish to use as your starting time. Stick your finger nail or something small and thin under the time slot you wish to use for " start" time and lift it up. 3. Do the same for the stopping time. 4. plug the device in I would recommend first setting it for two times in a short range so that you can go check on it and make sure it is working. Then, reset the pins to your desired times.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty design As others have noted, after a few weeks/months this timer acts as if it's on Venus, by that I mean it loses significant time, i.e., about 3 hours every day for my unit. Since I'm not alone with this problem it's clearly a faulty product design. Holding on the phone now to talk with a HomeDepot (it's a store brand) to see how I can get my money back. Bought it four months ago and do not have the receipt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use; good price I was hesitant to buy this based on reviews of a different timer by the same manufacturer saying that model (not this one) was hard to set up and instructions were bad. But this was super simple to set up (takes about a minute) and is working well so far. I needed an outdoor timer for a fountain and didn't want to spend a ton of money.
