Question about Intermatic Inc. ST01C Digital In-Wall Timer
Wanted to reset my Utilitech LW0418. Pushed the place that says reset. None of the buttons will respond. Red light stays on and will not turn off. Turned the circuit breaker off and put it back on and timer is still unresponsive and red light is still lit on the on off switch
Copy following link for Utilitec LW60418 timer.
Same as Westek TMDW10, and Stanley 30418
This timer is reset with one-button.
Unlike some timers that require 2 button push.
Push in reset button firmly with paper clip, and hold for several seconds. Repeat.
This action will clear timer memory.
If reset does not restore functionality, then timer could be bad.
This timer has 1 year limited warranty.
Suggest buying new timer at Lowes, and returning defect timer in new package.

The wires on your new switch are intended for black = power .. white = neutral . and red = lights .. with two black wires on the old switch I am assuming that there is a bundle of white wires in that wall box, the white timer needs to join that bundle ... then you need to determine which black wire is the power from the electrical panel ( voltage tester) and connect to the black timer wire .. the red timer wire connects to the other black wire in the wall..
Please Vote !!

SOURCE: I am trying to install
1) Wires in box:
Black looped to to next switch is Black hot wire
Other Black goes to fixture
2) Connect timer wires
Black timer wire goes to Black hot
Red (or Blue) timer wire goes to fixture
White wire connects to white neutral wires (usually connected together with wire nut and pushed to back of box)
Green goes to bare ground wire

Black goes to Hot wire from breaker box
Red wire goes to Load (light, fan, motor)
White wire goes to Neutral
Green to bare copper ground wire
Your original switch had 2 wires plus bare ground.
One of these wires is Hot, the other goes to Load.
You said original wires are Red and Black
How do you find Hot wire?
-Your original switch had 2 wires.
-Remove timer from box.
-Pull original 2 wires out where you can test them
-Turn on power
-Use regular tester
-Tape tester leads to wood sticks so your hands stay away from voltage
-Power is on
-Test each original wire to bare ground wire
-When tester lights up, that is Hot wire ... this wire connects to Black wire on timer
- The other wire goes to Load so it connects to Red wire on timer
How to test for Neutral wire
Test Hot wire to your white wires - No need to untwist them.
When tester lights up, that is Neutral
White wire from timer connects to Neutral.
Green goes to ground wire.
How to reset timer
I'm not sure which timer you have. Probably GE 15086. Reset is small round button below HOUR button. Use paper clip and push-in reset until timer flashes 12 o'clock.

If your box contains 2 and only 2 wires, then the Utilitec timer will not work.
You need the Intermatic ST01C or EJ500 timers that operate with a battery.
I have tested the Intermatic and Utilitec timers:
Do not connect white and red wires together on any timer, but thank you for solving the problem why lights blink when connecting timers.
Now lets look at your wires.
Scrape paint off the wires so you can identify white and black.
According to your information, the black wire inside box will connect to timer-black wire.
The red wire always goes to Load (your light, fan, motor)
The white wire is necessary to complete a circuit so the clock inside timer will operate.
The timer has a clock just like your alarm clock, and it needs to connect back to neutral busbar in breaker box.
This is why the battery-operated timers will work with two wires, the clock runs on battery.
The Utilitec timer-white wire is the wire that goes to Neutral
The timer-white wire is supposed to connect to the other white wires that are twisted together and covered with a wire nut ... but some boxes do not have this neutral wire
To work-around, the timer-white wire can also connect to a bare ground wire.
The bare ground wire also connects to Neutral busbar in breaker box
If you do not have a neutral or ground wire as described above, then you need the battery-powered ST01C or EJ500 Intermatic timers.
See if you can pull some more of the wire into your box ... there might be a ground wire that was cut off and pulling more wire might reveal a ground wire. This will salvage the project.
Aplus is one of many places that sell the Intermatic timer
