comment How did electronic timers get the override button completely wrong?
It is true that my second generation ones are all from China and the leaflets are poorly translated. However, I am sure I am using them as well as they can be used.

That is one of the things that is so intriguing about the bad design of the second generation of electronic timers. My earlier models have five buttons and the later ones have ten! I'm in favour of simplicity but the manufacturers seem not to be.

How does it happen that something that worked so well gets messed up by all manufacturers at the same time?
