SOURCE: installing timer on existing electrical outlet

Are the wires different colors or is there too many of one and not enough of the other. Your bathroom switch should have black which is hot, white which is neutral, and green or bare which is ground. It should be the same on the timer, but may differ. The instructions should tell which wire or terminal is hot, neutral and ground.

SOURCE: Trying to replace Intermatic with Utilitech inwall

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..

SOURCE: I bought a Utilitech 7 day digital in wall timer,

HI .. if the switch has only a black and white wire attached, and there are no other wires in the wall box, then you cannot use this timer switch. You need to return it and get a timer that does not use a neutral connection. The wires you have are a switch leg from the light and there is a white wire but it is not a neutral.
If there are other wires in that wall box , tell me and we can chat more about how to remedy this .

Please Vote !!

SOURCE: Help with Woods 59018/59028 7 day digital timer

The usual connection for this type timer is the house black power to the timer black, the house white power to the timer white and the , the light black wire to the red timer wire.
If you only have two wires, one black and one white, at the switch location, then you cannot use this style timer , as it needs a neutral. You should return this timer and get one that does not require a neutral connection.

Please Vote !!

SOURCE: GE digital timer. Instructions say to: 1)

Find the Hot wire:
Your switch has 2 wires. One of these wires is Hot, and one goes to load. Disconnect wires from switch. Turn on power. Do not stand on wet surface. Test each wire to bare copper wire. When tester lights up, that is Hot wire. The other wire goes to load.

Connect wires:
Hot wire goes to Black timer wire
Wire to load goes to Red timer wire
White wire connects to white wires that are twisted together
Bare copper wire connects to Green wire from timer

How to connect white wire to white wires that are twisted together.
a) Strip white timer wire so you have 1-1/2 " of bare wire. Stranded wire will wrap around other wires easily.
b) Remove wire nut. DO NOT UNTWIST wires.
c) Hold all whites together so bare copper lines up. Wrap stranded copper around the twisted wire.
d) Replace wire nut, or use larger wire nut. Twist real tight. Do not use tape. You can solder the connection.
e) When done, pull on white time wire to make sure it is held tight. Push whites back into box.

Trying to connect a Tork A530 MW timer to a spa tub pump


  1. The white wire (neutral) in your feed cable from the electric panel should be connected to the white (neutral) wire going to the pump.
  2. This switch is wired in 'series' in the hot (black wire) leg. That means one black timer wire connects to the black wire in the feed cable from your electric panel and the other black timer wire connects to the black wire that goes out to the pump.
  3. I the diagram the switch is your timer and the light bulb is the pump. The switch is in series with the pump.

Wiring diagram sunsmart. I am replaceing a timer swithch of a differnt brand. I have a single pole installation, but the power enters the fixture and then comes to the switch. The diagram in the box...


Sounds like you have the GE sunsmart timer, and are wiring the timer for single-pole.
Following information does not apply to 3-way timer wiring.
Add a comment if you have different timer.

Start with previous timer:
The previous timer was connected to two wires: Hot wire and Load wire.
Hot wire carries power from circuit breaker.
Load wire connects to fan,light, or motor.

How to wire Sunsmart:
1) Only one wire in the electrical box is Hot. That wire is usually black. Connect black Hot wire to timer-black wire.
2) Load wire connects to timer-blue wire.
3) Timer-red wire is capped off for single-pole wiring.
4) Timer-green wire connects to bare copper wire.
5) Timer-white wire connects to Neutral wire. This will power the timer electronics. The previous timer probably had a battery to power timer electronics. Neutral wires are white wires that are twisted together and covered with wire nut and pushed to back of box.
6) If box does not have Neutral wires, then connect timer-white wire to bare copper ground wire until neutral wire can be run from any nearby outlet box.
7) Try the timer, and if timer does not work, then reverse timer-blue and timer-black.

I need help to install pool pump to mechanical intermatic timer switch GE to replace the digital control.


Question is not clear.
Add a comment with missing information for exact wiring diagrams.
Voltage is not known.
Timer model numbers are not known.
You have two timers.
You are replacing unknown electronic timer with unknown mechanical timer.
Intermatic timers and GE timers are different companies, and each makes many different timers
Each box timer has identification on inside of timer door.

How do you wire a 3-wire timer switch (white, black, red) to replace a single light switch to a front door light?


You have a 3 wire in-wall timer.
Colors red black white

You are replacing single pole switch that has 2 wires (plus ground, we'll ignore ground for now)

So switch has 2 wires:
1 switch wire goes to Load/lights > this wire connects to timer red wire
1 switch wire is Hot from breaker > this wire connects to timer black wire
When finished, if lights do not turn on, then reverse red and black wires.

Timer white wire powers clock inside timer.
To complete circuit to clock, white wire is connected to neutral wires.
Located in back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut.
These wires are neutral, connect timer white wire to these wires.

If box does not have neutral wires described above, connect timer white to bare ground wire.

I have a paragon 8145-20 defrost timer. do you wire the compressor to the timer? I cant seem to find a wiring diagram on how to wire this correctly


Link below has wiring diagrams and wiring manuals for 240V 8145-20
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#defrost

I am not expert installing defrost timers.
According to information from Paragon, 8145 is for hot gas defrosting. 8140 series are time initiated, and pressure-or-temperature terminated.
Wiring diagram does not show compressor wired to timer.

The cycle works like this:
Timer is running but defrost is not switched ON.
Fan is ON.
Timer switches ON and activates defrost cycle.
Fan turns OFF. Hot gas valve turns ON for defrosting.
Cycle limit switch is temperature or pressure sensitive.
Cycle limit switch reaches trip point, timer switches OFF.
Hot gas valve turns OFF. Fan turns ON.
So fan is off during defrost cycle.
Hot gas valve turns ON when timer switches ON.
Timer is switched OFF by pressure-or-temperature limit switch.

When I hook up a new timer it starts to make a clicking noise and the lights do not go on. I have put in 2 different batteries and the timer still makes a clicking noise. The light timer is for a 3-way...


Your wiring is probably wrong.
Wiring is tricky for 3-way timers.
First of all, both 3-way switches cannot be replaced with timers ... just one of the two switches is replaced.

You don't say which timer you have.
Since I know the wiring and the timers, let me jump in, and you can add a comment, and then we can work further.

A) You have battery-operated ST01C or EJ500.
Here is wiring diagram for Intermatic battery-operated timers:
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#3way
Note that at all times, the blue wire has to go to load, and that the blue wire connects to dark-colored screw on 3-way switch.
Note that the remaining 3-way switch is not wired the same as before. The red and blue wires have to be wired exactly as shown, and the wiring might require additional wire running between the switches.
Now add a comment with your wire colors and description where you are in the wiring.

B) You have Aube timer with rechargeable battery.
T0132 manual shows wiring diagrams
http://waterheatertimer.org/Aube-T1032-timer.pdf
Below is image of typical Aube wiring.
The manual shows one other diagram depending on which switch is being replaced.
The important this is note that the wiring on the remaining 3-way switch requires a jumper wire from the dark-colored screw to the brass screw on other side of switch. But it has to be the same brass screw that goes back to Aube timer #1 wire.
Usually this little difference solves the 3-way switching problem, but add a comment any time.

Need connection diagram Thks


The following diagram is for timers with green, black, white, and red wires:
If your timer is different, add a comment with model number.

geno_3245_66.jpg


Manual says:
Timer-black-wire to Hot; Timer-red-wire to Load (lights)
Timer-white-wire to Neutral.
Here's what to do
1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire.
2) Switch has 2 wires. Take switch wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire. Choose either one for now.
3) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white to these wires.
4) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground.
5) Turn on electricity, and push manual override button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

In the Intermatic ST01C, what is the function of the red wire in a two-switch set-up, which [after the second switch] goes to the same place as the [timer-switched] blue wire?


ST01C is battery operated timer with red, blue, black & green wire.
Red wire is used when replacing 3-way switch (for ex: light switch at each end of hall)

Red wire is capped off when replacing single-pole switch.

If red and black wires are combined, lights will blink.

If red and blue wires are combined, timer reverses ON-OFF function (just like a 3-way switch reverses).

How do I wire the timer in a 3-way switch?


Woods 59013 59017 59018 59720 59028 etc wall timers are not made for 3-way application. They replace a simple on-off switch.

Atube T1032-3W programmable timer shows it can replace 3-way switch.
See manual
Smarthome

Intermatic ST01C & EJ500 programmable times can replace 3-way switch. Look at diagrams carefully. Circuit is limited to 100' distance because of battery.
See wiring diagram
Aplus

Lutron makes several 3-way countdown timers that turn on light for certain length of time and then turn off light

Tip for 3-way switch replacement: Mark wire that connects to dark-colored screw. This is called the 'common' wire.
Depending on location of switch, the 'common' wire either goes to Load (lights) or it comes from breaker box as Hot wire.
