Question

Why won't my MiniTimer control my modules?

How many lights and appliances can I control with the MiniTimer?

Answer

After you set its House Code, the Mini-Timer can issue commands to eight unique addresses (1-8) on that house code. You can have more than one X10 module on one unique address, like three outdoor lights that all come on at once. The Mini-Timer can set and operate timers for four unique addresses (1-4 or 5-8.)

If a particular Module won’t go on or off from the rocker keys on the Mini Timer:

Check that you have power to the outlet controlling the Module and the switch on the light or appliance is ON. Check that the Unit Code and Housecode on the Module are set correctly.

Try plugging the Module and the Mini Timer into the same outlet. If the Module doesn’t work in ANY outlet, not even with the Module and the Mini Timer in the same duplex receptacle (top and bottom) the Module may be defective.

If you can’t control ANY Modules from the Mini Timer:

Check that there is a time displayed on the Mini Timer and that you have power to the outlet it is plugged into. Check that the Housecode on the Mini Timer is set correctly. Try plugging the Module and the Mini Timer into the same outlet. If NONE of your Modules work in ANY outlet, not even with the Module and the Mini Timer in the same duplex receptacle (top and bottom) the Mini Timer may be defective.
