How to Program a Kambrook Timer Switch

Save

The Kambrook Electronic Timer switch features an electrical outlet with a timer that allows you to program up to eight start and stop times for any device you have plugged into it. For example, if you're out of town and concerned about your home appearing empty, you can plug a lamp or radio into the timer and set it to switch on at a different time each day. It also offers a feature that will randomly switch the device on and off as well as a countdown timer.

  • Set the day and time on the timer. Press and hold "Clock." While holding the "Clock" button, press "Day" to scroll through the days of the week and select the correct one. Press the "Hours" and "Min" buttons to select the correct time. Release "Clock" when you are finished.

  • Press "Prog" set the "On" time for the switch. The word "On" and the number "1" will appear on the left side of the display.

  • Press "Day" to choose an individual day or a block of days. Choosing an individual day means that this specific program will only activate on that day; choosing a block of days means that the program will be active on each day in the chosen block.

  • Set the time that you want the timer to switch on by using the "Hours" and "Min" buttons to select the appropriate time. Press "Prog" when you are done to complete your entry of the "On" time.

  • Select the "Off" time for your timer by using the "Day," "Hours" and "Min" buttons to choose when you want the timer to switch off. Press "Prog" again to save this entry. Repeat steps two through six to set additional timers.

  • Press "Day" and "Hours" to activate the random timer mode. An "R" will appear on the LCD screen, indicating that the timer is in Random mode. This will cause your timer to switch on and off at different times, following no set pattern.

  • Press the button that looks like a hand with the index finger extended to perform a manual override. The display will show you whether it is in Manual or Auto mode, and whether it is turned on or off. "Manual On" means that the time is switched permanently on while "Manual Off" indicates that the timer is turned off. "Auto Off" activates the program that you have set, while "Auto On" turns the time on until the next schedule "Off" time, after which it continues to follow your programmed times.

  • Press "Clock" and "Prog" at the same time to use the countdown feature. Use the "Hours" and "Min" buttons to select the length of the countdown, and press "Manual" to start.

  • To reset the entire unit and clear all programmed times, use the end of a paper clip or a ball-point pen to press the "Reset" button, located above the "Manual" button.
