SOURCE: manual for taco clock timer 265
I was having the same problem and came accross these instructions. The following link is a PDF file. The first page relates to an analog timer and the following pages relate to a more advanced digital one. Good luck.

I have the same stove, and just had the same problem. I looked all over the internet to try to find an answer, and then went back to my stove to check the serial number and where the fuses are was the instructions printed on the stove itself.
SO HERE'S THE SOLUTION
1. The timer start knob (the one with little running guy picture) must NOT be pushed in. If it is, turn it slowly until it snaps out.
2. The timer stop knob (the one with the picture of the stop sign) must be completely pushed in.
I hope that helps everyone out!

the extra white wire from timer goes to the group of white wire ganged together in rear of box. you need to connect a jump wire to tha group and lead to timer. grey wire goes to black. red to red.

1) Programming steps say 'press clock key to return to current time and day'
2) Use mode button and change between AUTO & RND >> try manual override in each mode
3) Does timer turn lights on-and-off with program, or do they blink too?
4) Swap Black and Red wires
5) Try timer on light in different room, on different circuit breaker
6) Timer might be defective
Woods 59018 manual does not show troubleshooting steps except 'check wiring; switch Red and Black leads; and/or reset programming'
Seems unlikely you could program timer unless timer is wired correctly ... unless there is a short of some kind.
To review wiring.
Green goes to bare ground wire.
White goes to Neutral white wire (neutral is usually 2 or 3 white wires twisted together and shoved to back of box)
Black must connect to Hot from circuit breaker
Red must connect to Load (light, fan, motor etc)
How to test wiring:
Disconnect timer and set aside.
Mark each wire
Separate wires in box so they don't touch
Use ordinary tester (you can tape tester leads to wood sticks)
Turn on power
You should have two black wires that were originally connected to switch
Test black wires to bare ground > when tester lights up, that is the Hot wire.
The other black wire goes to Load
Now you want to find the neutral.
Test the Hot black wire to white wires in box.
When tester lights up, that is neutral.
If everything checks out, I guess timer is defective.

Timer takes AA battery installed from back
Instructions say: Set timer to AUTO using MODE button. This will let programs run.
To override current program, press MODE once for ON-or-OFF override.
Press MODE again to enter RDM or random mode. RDM shows on display.
Press MODE third time for AUTO. Usually, AUTO will show on display.
