    digital timer

    hey everyone. i have a digital timer for my auto cloner. its so it can shut off every few minutes to keep the motor and water cool.
    can anyone help me set the timer to what i needs?
    what does it need? 5min on 5min off?
    anyway, how do i set the timer to turn on and off like that? its super confusing. i know how to set it kind of. like 7 days a week. on time and off time, but how to i make it repeat every 5 minutes kind of thing without going thru every 5 min to every hour to every day of the week. is there a simple way to program it im missing.
    please and thank you.

    It depends on the type of timer. It seems like you have a similar one to mine, which can't be programmed to turn on/off every X minutes, you can only program it based on the time of the day.

        Mine is an unbranded timer from China, but it apparently works pretty much the same way yours do. What you're looking for is short period repeat cycle timers.

        I bought a BN-LINK 24 hour timer in Dec and tried for 2 days to program it with no luck. It would not keep a setting. Gave up and got a manual timer with set pins but they only work in 1/2 hour increments. Amazon gave me a refund and told me to not send it back so that told me something.

      Something like this is what you will need/want, under $30 at either place, I did not look around for a deal or any other brand.
