The timer has 4 terminals the 2 under the clock portion of the timer are for 120 VAC power to run the timer . the upper 2 terminals are the contact switch terminals which are opened and closed by the setting tabs of the timer to turn the item you wish to control on and off.

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.

My wall box only has a black & a white. Can I still use this timer?


You posted under GE 15069.
If you have different timer, then add a comment.

Yes you can use this timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15067

Here are wiring instructions
Timer might have blue wire instead of red wire.
Some timers do not have green wire.

How to wire this timer:
1) Green wire connects to bare copper 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. This will power timer electronics.
4) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground, along with timer-green wire.
5) Turn on electricity, and push ON-OFF button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

You have to identify timer.
Say which buttons are on timer face and what wires the timer has.
What red light comes on?
Add a comment with specific information so I can identify the timer.

Intermatic, Brinks, Aube and UPM timers wire differently than other timers.

Swylightlight, Wattstopper, Leviton, Lutron, Woods, GE, Utilitec, Hagar, Sylvania, Westek, Intermatic (no battery) are generally wired in following manner:

1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire.
2) Switch has 2 wires. Take switch wires and connect to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire (sometimes this is blue wire). Choose either wire for now.
3) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white wire to these wires.
4) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground wire along with green wire.
5) Turn on electricity, and push ON-OFF button, or activation button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

If timer is wired correctly, and timer does not work, then timer is defective.

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 the manual wiring doesn't match what I have in the switch box. This switch is to operate 2 outside porch lights., previously wired to a single pole switch as follows.. one black wire to one screw and 2...


I test these timers.
GE 15071 timer has internal clock that runs on electricity. That's why timer has extra wire.
Intermatic, GE, Tork, Leviton, Sylvania, Woods, Utilitec etc in-wall timers each wire the same way.
The only tiny difference is GE doesn't have green ground wire.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html

Here's what to do:
1) Old switch has two screws (excluding green ground screw)
One screw on old switch has 2 black wires >> these are hot wires > timer black wire connects to these hot wires. This will power the timer.
2) The other switch wire connects to timer red wire. This will send timer signal to lights.

3) Timer white wire is for the timer clock.
Timer white wire connects to other white wires that are twisted together and covered with wire nut >>> these are neutral wires, and now timer clock will operate
4) For EZ connection to other white wires, strip back another inch on timer white wire so stranded wire can wrap like a candy cane around solid copper wires. Then twist wire nut on very tight.

5) When wiring is complete, push door on timer for manual override. Lights should turn ON-OFF. If lights do not turn on, reverse timer red and timer black wires. Make sure outdoor bulbs are working.

Flickering bulbs


You posted under EJ500 Intermatic battery-operated timer.
If you have different timer, add a comment.
I have tested EJ500 timer.

A) If this is new single-pole installation and lights click on-off when timer turned on, then you connected red wire where blue wire should be connected.

Manual says for single pole switch:
Timer-black-wire to Hot; Timer-blue-wire to Load (lights)
Here's how to wire timer correctly:
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-blue-wire. Choose either one for now.
3) Put wire nut on red wire.
4) Turn on electricity, and push ON-OFF button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-blue and timer-black wires.

B) If you are replacing 3-way switch, view wiring diagrams shown on link below, and then add a comment saying exact color of wires. To wire this timer for 3-way can require additional wire between switches. This is because EJ500 blue wire must always go to Load (light, fan, motor)
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#EJ500-wire

C) If this is older timer that stopped working, check your bulbs. Then check timer battery. Manual says if timer stops working and bulbs are good, and battery good, then reset timer and reprogram. How to reset timer. Press reset button while holding down Next/ON-OFF button.
EJ500 manual has long list of programming instructions: Add a comment if you forgot parts of programming.

I am replacing an old intermatic model EJ341 spring wound timer with a GE15086 digital in wall timer. The old intermatic timer has two black wires from each side (I dont know which one is hot). Each of the...


GE 15086 is a 7-day programmable timer. It has more wires than spring-wound timer because clock motor runs on 120V circuit, just like ordinary electric clock. The clock on spring wound timer operated by a spring.
f7d4104.jpg


If I understand correctly, the old timer has 2 wires. One of these wires is the Hot wire ... and that wire will connect to GE timer black wire.
The other wire from old timer goes to Load ... and that wire will go to GE timer red wire.

Instructions on a lot of these timers say, it timer doesn't work, then reverse the two wires described above ... this is because timer only works when Timer black connects to Hot.

You can also turn on power and test each wire that came off old switch to bare ground wire. When tester lights up, that is Hot wire.

GE timer Green wire connects to bare ground wire.

Moving on to GE timer white wire. This wire is necessary for the clock to run. This wire connects to Neutral wire which is usually white. You can test for Neutral by testing Hot wire to each white wire in box ... when tester comes on, that is Neutral.

If you do not have a white Neutral wire, then connect GE timer white wire to bare ground wire. This is not code, but it will work fine until you hire electrician to run Neutral into box.
