To set the hour, press the CLOCK and HOUR buttons at the same time, and press CLOCK and MIN at the same time to set the minute. Press CLOCK and WEEK at the same time for the day setting. After setting the current time of the day, you need to program the timer. To enter into the programming mode, press PROG, and the display shows 1 ON. Press HOUR, MIN and WEEK to set the hour, minute and day you would like your timer to turn on for your "1" setting. To program the off time to your first setting, press PROG.

If you wish to set more timer settings, repeat the same process as your first setting. During the programming mode, you can cancel your last setting by pressing R. Pressing ON/AUTO/OFF produces a display to show the ON, AUTO and OFF modes. By setting the timer ON, power is supplied to the outlets, and no timer programming takes place.
