For this reason it is recommended that a polarized 2-prong outdoor extension cord be used between the timer and the lights. Note that 3-prong grounded extension cords are not compatible with this timer, as it is a 2-prong polarized device.
2. If you are using an outdoor extension cord plug it into your timer receptacle. If you are not using an extension cord, plug your outdoor Christmas or other incandescent lights into your timer receptacle. The total cumulative wattage of all the lights must not exceed 1000 watts.
3. Plug the timer into a 120-V outlet. The display will show two parallel flashing bars and your lights will come ON.
4. Press the selector button repeatedly until the LED display shows the number of hours (1-9) that you wish the lights to stay ON after dusk. If you wish your lights to stay ON from Dusk to Dawn, press the selector button until the display shows two parallel bars (not flashing). Each day, yours lights will turn ON at dusk and remain ON for the duration of time you selected.
5. When you set the time period you want your lights stay ON:
If is dark: Your lights will now stay ON for the duration that you selected or
until dawn, which ever occurs first. Each day thereafter, the timer will automatically turn the lights ON at dusk and will stay ON for the period of time you selected, or at dawn, whichever occurs first.
If is daylight: Your lights will remain ON for a minute or two to let you ensure that your lights are working, and will then turn OFF. Then at dusk, your lights will automatically turn ON and will stay ON for the duration that you selected, or at dawn whichever occurs first. The sequence will repeat every night.

Question

Dusk to Dawn setting not working

When I scroll through the settings by pressing the button, the only time the lights actually come on is when 'O' or 'Always On' is selected. The "Dusk to Dawn" and "1-9" settings do not even light up the red power light.

The timer needs to be in a dark environment in order to turn on, you will need to make sure the timer is away from any light source that may interfere with the photocell function. You can test it by covering the photocell.

Question

Can i break off the ground prong?

All I'm using this for is about 9-18 watts on Xmas lights. But the outlet I'm plugging into is a 2 prong light socket outside. I would use my separate 2 prong timer but it is only for inside use.

Question

Parallel Bars Keep Flashing

I just pulled my timer out for the holidays season. When I plug it in, the parallel bars just keep flashing and the unit does not respond when I push the grey button to select my hours.

What can I do?

1. Before installing your Lighting Timer with photocell, plan your lighting layout. It is important to keep your timer from:
a) the lights being timed
b) other night time light sources, e.g. street lights, porch lights, and
c) reflective surfaces such as aluminum siding
(Please refer to Item 2 under Other Important Notes)
For this reason it is recommended that a polarized 2-prong outdoor extension cord be used between the timer and the lights. Note that 3-prong grounded extension cords are not compatible with this timer, as it is a 2-prong polarized device.
2. If you are using an outdoor extension cord plug it into your timer receptacle. If you are not using an extension cord, plug your outdoor Christmas or other incandescent lights into your timer receptacle. The total cumulative wattage of all the lights must not exceed 1000 watts.
3. Plug the timer into a 120-V outlet. The display will show two parallel flashing bars and your lights will come ON.
4. Press the selector button repeatedly until the LED display shows the number of hours (1-9) that you wish the lights to stay ON after dusk. If you wish your lights to stay ON from Dusk to Dawn, press the selector button until the display shows two parallel bars (not flashing). Each day, yours lights will turn ON at dusk and remain ON for the duration of time you selected.
5. When you set the time period you want your lights stay ON:
If is dark: Your lights will now stay ON for the duration that you selected or
until dawn, which ever occurs first. Each day thereafter, the timer will automatically turn the lights ON at dusk and will stay ON for the period of time you selected, or at dawn, whichever occurs first.
If is daylight: Your lights will remain ON for a minute or two to let you ensure that your lights are working, and will then turn OFF. Then at dusk, your lights will automatically turn ON and will stay ON for the duration that you selected, or at dawn whichever occurs first. The sequence will repeat every night.

Yes, the timer should work with LED lights.

This particular timer has an electromechanical relay that completely shuts power off. If it works with incandescent, it should work the same with LED.

Can you try the timer with other LED lights to determine if there is a real issue with the timer?

There is not much to this timer. You plug it in to the wall outlet and the other end gets connected to your electrical load.

The button controls the number of hours you have the load on after dusk. Keep on pressing from 1 to 9 to achieve the number of hours you want it on. Make sure the photo sensor is pointed to the sun and gets to be dark at night and not interupted by streetlights.
