Problems, GE SunSmart Digital Timer 15312


While not a licensed electrician, I became at least as frustrated as you !

What saved me was my cell phone and the helpful tech who talked me through the set-up process

Problems, GE SunSmart Digital Timer 15312


After following suggestions in this site I was able to program the timer January 2012. In the past 15 months the timer clock has gained 45 minutes,so now it appears I need to reprogram everything from the beginning.

I am having a time issue also. My unit is running slow. My unit is brand new. Bought it a month ago but just got to install it yesterday. ( lost the receipt cause who keeps those) Example: when i set the clock to 10:00AM and i come back 1 hour later (60 minutes) the time now shows 10:30AM. i am literally losing 12 hours a day. Im hopping for a quick fix otherwise i wasted my money.

Something is wrong with device. All of these types of devices count the 60 cycle to keep track of time. The utilities are regulated to keep the 60 Hz very accurate. As such the time should be accurate to a couple seconds a year...

Get a new timer I suspect. If you want to try something install a regular incandescent bulb and not some newer cfl or led style. These timers depend on a small leakage current through the load to work. Some electronic bulbs might not satisfy this load requirement. Easy enough to try. I have same timer with cfl bulbs and it works fine but I also have a downstream gfci which may change the leakage characteristics.

Some timers work on leakage, others require a neutral. In single pole use, the 15312 requires the neutral.
