We bought a house with an "intermatic heavy duty" box to control

Customer Question

We bought a house with an "intermatic heavy duty" box to control the deck lighting. We have replaced the bulbs and are trying to figure out how to set the time on the control box. It already has settings dialed for the am and pm times and we don't want to change them. Do we only need to set the time and plug it in so the lighting will work?

Hello. Welcome to Just Answer.

Are you able to post a photo, or post the model number for the timer?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
could I text it to you?
Expert:  Jason replied 2 years ago.
You can, but the site requires a very small price increase for the Experts to give out personal contact info. They consider that type of consultation an upgrade over a typed chat. The additional fee is minimal, and I've never had a customer complain that it was too much. If you want that option, you would get my phone number and email address. That way, you can text me, call me, or email me. Or, we can continue here if you prefer.

The center has what looks like army time setting for the time - like "1430" - does that help?
Expert:  Jason replied 2 years ago.
Yes, it does. I believe with the timer you have, you are correct about leaving the on and off times set, and then setting the current time.

Ok that's what I'll do - thanks
Expert:  Jason replied 2 years ago.
You are most welcome. Is there anything else I can do for you at this time?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I'm good - thanks

I appreciate the opportunity to help. Have a blessed day.
