I am not sure if you can buy a four pole timer, but if you can find one you would be able to do this. I've only ever seen a two pole timer however. The next option would be to get a four pole contactor with a 120 volt coil. You could run the timer off of one of the lighting circuits and the timer would operate the coil on the contactor.

Timer light on front panel of dishwasher has stopped working--how is it replaced?


Most of the led lights are fused to the circuit board. Sounds like the circuit board is going or gone bad. I'm not sure because you did not give the model of the dishwasher.

Most of the control lights are led and do not go bad. But the circuit board that controls the lights can go bad. You may be able to fix the control circuit board but replacing it would be easier.

I am trying to install a double pole pass and seymour toggle switch to electric outdoors for a pool pump and pool timer. this switch appears to match the old one so I tried to wire it exactly the same. All...


Hi Jeremy,

You need a double pole or S2 switch rated at least for 240V / 20A.

It sounds like you're describingt a four way switch or S4. A quick check of the handle (if the traditional toggle type) can help you identify the switch; it should have "ON" and "OFF" indicated on it if it is an S2 and nothing at all if an S4. S4 switches almost always have four brass or gold colored screws while S2 switches nearly never have four brass or gold colored screws (not counting the green ground screw - of course).

One or more S4 switches are used between three way or S3 switches when 3, 4, 10, 20 or more switches are needed to control lights or other devices (typical usage to turn lights on and off at each floor to a stairway in multi-level buildings. These are typically 120 volt residential circuits in the U.S..

S2 switches are required when controlling two hot wire circuits that need both hot wires to be opened when shut off. These are typically 240 volt residential circuits in the U.S..

I hope this helps & good luck!

Programming to command other switches


Question is not clear.
Add a comment and say specifically what timer you have and what type of switch(es) you want to control, and add what voltage you are working with and what color wires you have.

You posted under Leviton 6230 30-minute countdown timer.
Generally, a countdown timer is not considered a programmable timer since the countdown program is already inside the timer.
With countdown timer, you push a button that turns circuit ON, and after countdown expires, the circuit turns OFF.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Countdown-timer-horsepower-ratings.html#6230

Countdown timer can easily switch a contactor ON, and then turn it off after countdown expires.

My yard stake is a tower with 6 outlets and a single button to set, the brand is Holiday Living. I can't get it to come on at dusk and run for 4 hours without the lights blinking. I want a constant...


Put black tape over photo electric eye and see if lights stay on without blinking.

Dusk-type yard stake has photo electric eye, which is visible as round glass ball.
Lights from circuit can cause photo-eye to think it is daylight, so circuit turns OFF.
Moment later, photo-eye thinks it's dark and lights click back ON

Usually 6-outlet yard stakes have 4 top outlets controlled by timer.
Normally bottom 2 outlets are ON full time.
Make sure bottom outlets are not blinking also, which implies problem with outdoor circuit or basic timer problem.
Check circuit with inexpensive circuit analyzer from Home Depot electric department.

Photoelectric eyes go bad easily, but usually they don't blink.
They stick ON or OFF.

Lights won't go on


Sounds like the timer may not be getting power.

Turn the circuit breaker that supplies the circuit OFF then ON, as sometimes it's hard to tell if a breaker has tripped by looking at it.

It's possible that the circuit is controlled by a switch that someone may have inadvertently turned OFF.

Also, it's very likely that the circuit is fed from a GFCI receptacle (the kind with the test and reset buttons that are usually found in kitchens and bathrooms) that may have tripped. Those receptacles can sometimes be found in very obscure places. Check outside receptacles too.

If anyone has been digging in the yard or flower beds it's possible that the cable may have been damaged.

Install a timer to control pool operation


Another option would be to get an electronic timer like the Intermatic P1353 that has 3 circuits on it that you could program to cut on and off at different times. For example, you could have one circuit that controls the pump and turns the pump on, then the second circuit would turn on the booster pump at a set time after the filter pump had come on and then the heater could be set to also run at a preset time after the pump circuit was activated. Since the pump, booster and heater are all 220, it's a straight forward hookup with everything in one timer box.

The lights, as stated before, would be on a separate circuit (110) and have its own timer or photosensitive eye set in line.

Let's review your wiring. There's probably something miswired when you get symptoms like that. Let's work one circuit at a time.

For circuit #1, the incoming (LINE) black (hot) wire is connected to the #3 terminal. The white (neutral) is connected to the "A" terminal. The bare equipment grounding wire is connected to the "GR" terminal (the green screw on the case).

The outgoing (LOAD) black wire to the first set of lights is connected to terminal #4 and the outgoing white (neutral) wire connects to the "A" terminal. The outgoing bare wire to the lights goes to the "GR" terminal. It's best to twist the wires together with a pigtail, wirenut them and connect the pigtail to the "GR" terminal.

Now for separate circuit #2. The incoming (LINE) black (hot) connects to terminal #1. The incoming white (neutral) connects to terminal "A". The incoming bare wire connects to the "GR" terminal.

The outgoing (LOAD) black wire to the 2nd set of lights connects to the #2 terminal. The outgoing white (neutral) goes to the "A" terminal. It's OK to twist all the white neutral wires (incoming _and_ outgoing for _both_ circuits) together with a pigtail that goes to the "A" terminal. Use a red wirenut.

As long as you don't load the 15 amp breaker over 12 amps (this is considered a continuous circuit and it cannot be loaded over 80% per NEC), you don't have to have two circuits if you don't want too. Figure about 1 amp per light as long as the lights aren't over 100 watt. (100 watt lamp/120 volts = 0.83 amps (round to one amp)
