How to use a plug in mechanical timer. Electronic plug-in timer tutorial.

In this video I show how to use a plug in mechanical timer in a few very simple steps. These timers can be used to turn on electrical appliances automatically. For example a household lamp, or a fish tank pump can be turned on and off using a plug in timer while you are away from your home.

    OMG, I was looking at it and I was too stunned to even do anything with it, haha. Thank you so much for this πŸ™‚

    I couldn’t work out how to set the blue timer switches until I realised that they were all already pushed down when you unpack the timer. I had to lift them all up to start with.

    I found a really old model of one of these in a draw and had no idea how it worked so thanks for this. Even tho yours is a newer version the instructions you gave were easy enough to follow and to transfer to the version i have

    Great information but please do not use for aquarium pumps/filters these need to be left on 24/7, was watching video so I can set up timer for aquarium lights- thanks for the info

  6. Chris Jones on May 1, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    Thanks so much. Have been sat on a couple of timers for weeks but decided it would be easier to get up and feed every 2 hours rather than learn something new. Your explanation made it so easy I wish I had cracked sooner. Will have my 1st nights sleep since before Christmas.
