How do you sent the time for it to turn on?

I pulled up the times the light should be lit, plugged the light into it and then to the wall. It never came on. The switch was set to timer. Any suggestions?
Asked by: Anonymous
I actually thought you had to set the first pin, push in, to when you want it to come on, and push all following pins in also until you get to the time you want it to turn off, and then pull this pin out. So say you set the current time to 12pm and want timer to come on at 5pm and go off at 5am, after setting the current time, you would push the pin in at 5pm and all following pins after it until you get to 5am. This pin you would pull out and all pins after 5am to 5pm again will be pulled out. If this does not work, you can reverse the pins and try it the other way. Below are another set of instructions that I found on the internet at this site; I have not tried this one yet but thought I would post it in hopes it might help. I have had nothing but problems with these type of timers. THESE INSTRUCTIONS I FOUND ON THE INTERNET AT : Instructions The following is a brief walk through on how to set a mechanical timer to activate and deactivate a device on a set schedule. 1. Select a setting: On the timer, find the button that allows you to toggle between its timer and automatic settings. Every timer is a little different, but they usually have an override setting that allows an electrical current to bypass the timer controls. This will allow you to operate the device manually without disconnecting the timer. 2. Plug in the timer: Find the outlet you want the device to work on and plug the timer into the outlet. Then plug your device into the socket on the timer, usually on the bottom-front of the timer. 3. Set the time: Most timers have a dial that the current time can be set on. Rotate the dial clockwise until it matches the current time. There should be a marking that designates the current time position. 4. Set the pins: Move the first pin to the time you want your device to turn on, and then set the second pin to the time you want that device to turn off. For example, if you want your device to run for six hours starting at 12 p.m., set the first pin to 12 p.m. and then set the second one to 6 p.m.. Take notice of the kind of clock your time has, as 12- and 24-hour clocks will require slightly different approaches to pin placement. 5. Test: You can test your timer by turning the dial manually to the on position. If the device turns on, then your timer works. Push it to the off pin to see if that setting works. When you're done testing, reset the timer to the current time. I think a better timer is this one: copy & paste the following link and it will open up Amazon to this timer. They are so much easier. Good luck.

I have a pull chain lamp. Should the lamp be set to on when I plug in the timer? Do I pop up the little peg for the curren time and then on/off time

What I would do is leave light off. pull pin up to set time. plug in light then in outlet then pull string for light to on positions. when you dealing with electic you want power off position safety is first.

Does this timer cover up both outlets of a normal outlet box

Asked by: dabigmoe
No, it fits well in just one side of a normal outlet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't take a genius to recognize a good timer. In case you haven't figured it out yet, the numbers go counterclockwise because the dial rotates clockwise. If you can't push the buttons down it must mean that they are already down and need to be pulled up. If the night-day thing confuses you than use a sharpie and mark midnight and noon on the dial. That should help. This is about the simplest timer I have ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the fifth time I have purchased this timer. I seem to keep finding a need for another timer. I have found that the slide switch between timer and outlet makes this product a plus rather than a the small turn dial on other brands that do not seem to lock.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good timer for the $, if you don't care about noise Probably if you're going DEAF, this is the perfect timer for you. Pretty darn accurate, if you can figure out an egg timer, you can figure out how to set it. But it makes a CREAKING NOISE as it goes, kind of like a board game timer, which makes me wish I hadn't bought it. So I'll probably throw it into a drawer for the next 10 years and try to find a SILENT timer, probably something digital. But if you don't hear well, or want to stick this in a far off corner of your house for lighting something you never get close enough to listen to - can't beat it for 7 bucks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works good and the price is right I bought 3 of these to use when I go on vacations. I have set up 2 lamps and a radio to come on at various times while I am away so it appears that I am at home. These are easy to set-up and use - and, the price is right!
