You do need a neutral for a timer switch, that is the white wire coming off the timer. The black wire is for the hot wire coming into the box, and the blue wire is the wire going to the light.

Hi I have decora 24 hour programmable timer 6124h. Its display seems to be working just fine and I can change the settings on this. But its not turning the load on. Any idea? Much appreciate the help on...


I don't have repair for defective timer.
Check wire nut connection going to load.
Confirm that load is operable and turned on.
See if timer is producing output on blue wire.
Try timer in place of a different switch to see if problem is load or wire going to load, or if timer is defective.
Make sure there are both ON and OFF times programmed.

Check wiring:
Timer blue wire to load.
Timer black wire to hot.
Timer white wire to neutral.
Green to ground.

After installing timer, lights flash on and off.


When lights blink, timer is wired wrong.
Error: The white wire is connected with red-or-blue wire instead of connected to neutral.

Timer has 4 wires: green for ground, black for hot, white for neutral, and red-or-blue wire for Load.

Leviton 6651 Decora Programmable Electronic Timer. When turned on all lights flicker. checked all connections and all are fine. Also replaced with regular switch and lights work fine.


There are a lot of problems that can affect timer operation.
Call 1-800-824-3005

We can start guessing at causes, and then you try some things, and add a comment with what you've done so the possibilities are narrowed down.
This could be a wiring problem, timer problem, load capacity problems, circuit problem, possibly a noise interference problem.
I would check load requirements and wiring first.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Leviton-timers.html

1) Load:
Manual says: DO NOT INSTALL TO CONTROL A RECEPTACLE, FLOURESCENT LIGHTING, A MOTOR, OR A TRANSFORMER OPERATED APPLIANCE.
Some recessed lighting can have transformers.

Try timer in another room on a different load.

2) For single-pole operation, the black and blue wires are used, and yellow wire is capped off.

Try reversing blue and black wires.
Make sure yellow wire is capped off.

3) For 3-way operation, the timer replace one of the 3-way switches.
The other 3-way switch remains in the circuit, but wiring has to be changed on the remaining 3-way.

Upvote the help.

Leviton 6200 series timer replaces single-pole switch. Will not work for 3-way or 4-way applications.
Timer has 4 wires: Blue, Black, White, Green
Timer Green to bare copper wire.
Timer Black to Hot wire from breaker.
Timer White to Neutral wire from breaker. Neutral wires are white wires that are twisted together and covered with wire nut pushed to back of box. If box does not have neutrals, connect Timer white to bare ground wire.
Timer Blue to Load wire.
If timer does not work, reverse Timer Black and Timer Blue.

Timer has 4 wires Blue, Green White and Black but wall switch only has black and white. where do I connect all the wires?


You are replacing a single-pole switch that has two wires.

You posted under UPM timer.
But UPM timers have a red wire instead of a blue wire, so you have different brand.

Some GE programmable timers and some Leviton timers have a blue wire.
Here are instructions:
-Green wire goes to bare ground wire.

-Timer black wire goes to black wire
-Timer blue wire goes to white wire.

-Located in back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. These are neutral wires. Timer white wire connects to these wires. This will power electronics inside the timer.
-If your box does not have white neutral wires described above, then connect timer white wire to bare ground wire along with timer green wire.
-Turn power ON, and push on-off button. If timer works, then it is wired correctly.
- If timer doesn't work, then reverse Timer blue and Timer black wires.
- If lights blink on-and-off, then you connected white wire incorrectly, review wiring shown above.

If your box does not have neutral wires or bare ground wire as described above, then buy Walmart.s Brinks 46-1022 or Intermatic ST01C or Intermatic EJ500 or Aube T1032. These timers do not need neutral or bare ground wire.

I lost my Leviton 6230M 30 mins timer installation sheet.


Switch has 2 black wires. One black is hot wire. One black is wire going to fan. Turn off power. Remove wires from switch and separate. Turn power back on. Using ordinary tester, test each black wire to bare copper ground wire. Only one of the black wires will test hot. The other black wire goes to fan.
Timer black wire connects to black hot
Timer blue wire connects to black wire going to fan
Timer white wire connects to white neutral (in absence of white neutral, connect Timer white wire to bare ground)
Timer green connects to bare ground wire
