Q: Can this timer set for 2 different time schedule? For example, turn on at 9 am and off at 10 am, then another timer to turn on at 5 pm and turn off at 7 pm. Is this possible?

submitted by Amy S - 6 years ago
  • A: Yes! You would just push down (or up) the corresponding segments.

    submitted byrobin89 - 6 years ago
  • A: Hi Amy S, thank you for reaching out to us with your question. Yes, you can. Each segments or Pins is 30 minutes, so the timer can be set to have a multiple programmed time within the 24-time period.

Q: I need a timer that I can program to go on and off every half hour, 24 hours a day (so on 24 times a day and off 24 times a day) Is that something this one can do?

submitted by Egg Noodles - 1 year ago

Q: It's been advised not to use the timer to plug into an extension cord. But is it okay to plug an extension into this timer? The extension has a polarized plug, not the grow lights. Which is safer?

Useless - 5 months ago, Verified purchaser
My first complaint about this product is the packaging. Even using scissors (which is necessary) you could still cut yourself on the plastic people-proof packaging. Is it a theft deterrent? I doubt it. With shoplifting the way it is now (at least in CA), it is not going to deter a thief in the least. After that, I wasn't even able to push the buttons down with a pen, pencil, fingers, and I'm not elderly. This thing is a useless brick that's going back to the store.

You can hear the timer cranking as it winds throughout the day but it works fine. You'd think they would make these so they don't block the second outlet but, here we are.

betsy606 - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
This device is very difficult to use and set up your on/off times. Instrucitions provided are UNCLEAR. I finally managed to get the timer set up as I needed. I can only hope it is working properly while I'm away. Feels cheap and flimsy so I don't think it will hold up for long. I was in a bind and needed a security timer so I had to go with this one. I expected better of a GE product.

Richard - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
I tried this twice but within several days of setting it correctly and plugging it in, it would stop working correctly. Stopped turning completely the first time it messed up. The second time the hours got way off at some point but it kept turning. I know this because I had it set to turn off for 30 minutes at 4 AM (reboot internet modem) but all of sudden at 10 AM we lost internet and when I check it, it showed 4 AM. I set the time on it correctly each time I plugged it in.

AB - 1 year ago
Gray pegs come already pushed down! You’re welcome. So the directions tell you to use the tip of a pen to push the gray pegs down. It specifically says to push on the edges. I spent 20 mins pushing these pegs & it wasn’t until I had broken a pen that I realized they came out of the package already pushed down 🤣 so you have to pop all the gray pegs up and then push down the ones you want. Hope this review saves at least one person from the frustration and sore finger tips that I’m experiencing lol

Button issue solved

kare - 2 years ago
I'm just getting started with this. So I have yet to write a full review of how this is working for me. But I want to share how I solved the button issue. I thought I got a broken one when I couldn't figure out how to push the buttons down to set the timer... the problem was, all the buttons were already down. So if you are having this problem, pull up all the buttons from the outer side... THEN you can push the buttons down!! Sigh... wished I knew sooner but hopefully this review will help others if they are having this issue.

The pins aren't even directly lined up with the numbers and it doesn't turn on at the exact time. I set it at 12pm in the morning and turn it so that it is on at 12pm exactly. The next day it turns on at 12:07 pm. If you don't care that it turns on and off not at the exact time you set it to then I guess this product gets the job done.
