Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. Possibly, yes. But also, you may not have set it correctly. Just in case, be sure you:

-had the light plugged in and turned on when you initiated the timer
-had the button so the clock face was covered, and the line was uncovered/showing
-set the start time to the arrow
-understood that the numbers represent military time, and set it accordingly

If you have done all of the above, and the light itself functions properly, then you may have a faulty timer. If so, please fax or email a copy of your receipt with your shipping information and phone number and we will be happy to replace the timer for you. Our fax number is 1-800-433-8914.

Question

I have one of these timers. My question is about the top button - one side as a pic of a clock and the other side has a straight line.

Which emblem should be showing when the timer is on?

Hello,
When the button covers the clock on the top of the timer, then the timer is activated and whatever is plugged in will only come on when the dial rotates over the areas that the tabs are pushed down on the outside of the dial. When the button covers the line, then the timer is overrided, and whatever is plugged in will be on all the time.

Question

How does the timer dial work

I followed the instructions for setting the light timer, however does not seem to work but i want to find out if i am doing something wrong or not. Is the dial suppose to spin while the timer is on? if i set the current time to 6am and the timer to be on at 8am, the timer once set is off but when the 2 hour have elapsed the timer does not come on at 8am as set, however if i manually spin the dial so that the arrow points to 8am it comes on! Does this mean its not working?

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. If the timer does not move at all from 6 a.m. towards 8 a.m., without you turning it, then no, the timer is not working properly. If it DOES move on its own to 8 a.m., then you must not be setting it correctly.

Please let us know if you need further assistance.

Hello,

Slide the button over so it hides the face/clock, and shows the line. Set your current time to the triangular mark. The numbers on the timer represent military time. Begin pushing gray tabs down from the time in the a.m. that you want the timer to come on, and push ALL of them down from that time to the time you want the timer to go off in the p.m. For example, if you want it to go on at 8:00 a.m. and off at 6 p.m., you begin pushing at 8 on the white half of the timer, and push all the gray tabs down between that number and the number 18 for 6 p.m. (18 represents 1800 hours in military time).

the bottom "arrow" is just part of the design of the timer and serves no purpose or function.
