Could not get the timer to work
I set the time and program 1. Did not turn on. Tried the manual selection which did work, showing that the lamp was functional and switched on. Went back to Auto but it did not work. Tried setting all 10 programs in case one of them was turning it off. No result. Count down timer worked ok. Taking it back to Bunnings tomorrow.
First one Faulty will try a replacement
Set it up exactly as instructed and it switched on 5 mins late,switched off 15 mins late. Then failed to switch on again. Have reset at least 8 times with different settings. Still not working. Very frustrated will return it and see if second one works.
Hard to program. Keeps losing program once set.
Following the on off program instructions was not straightforward but I got it working. Some trial and error to get it actually working. In the 6 weeks I have had it it has lost all programming 3 times and defaults to on. Hopeless piece of kit.

Good once you can figure out how to use it
I bought 2 of these for my reptile enclosure lights. I followed the instructions how to set the time and the on/off times for the timers but couldn't get them to work. I asked another person in my family to help but they couldn't get them working either. The lights weren't even working when just plugged in to the timer with nothing set. It was so frustrating. I was ready to send them back to Bunnings thinking they were faulty and just sat pressing all the buttons hoping something would work. They eventually turned on - because there was an ON s...etting (not mentioned in the instructions). It took a bit of trial and error & a lot of resetting the timers to finally figure out how to actually SET the timer to come on/off. The instructions were useless. If I had known how difficult a seemingly easy to use product would be, I wouldn't have bought them (I didn't like how the analogue timers tick all the time).
