Does this timer have the facility whereby you can switch off during an 'on' period, so that it will stay off then automatically switch on again at the next 'on' period?

How can I find out how to set the timer. My partner has one but has mislaid the instructions and I cannot find the answer.

Asked by: Mike 5
The product incorporates a ring of small switches that can be moved up or down to denote if the attached device should be on or off. The whole outer ring can be turned clockwise, simply line up the current day/time to the arrow.

You say it's not suitable for tumble dryers. Why is this if my tumble dryer plugs into the mains via a standard 13amp plug?
Asked by: Anonymous
This cannot handle the large power consumption of the tumble dryer.
