SOURCE: Hobart H600 Double Pole Breaker

You need to get a new electrician; a real electrician would read the power requirements on the motor name plate and install the correct voltage and amperage circuit.

A single pole breaker does not supply the same voltage as a double pole breaker. It hums because the voltage is wrong

SOURCE: In my electrical box, I have one black, one white

With just two wires other than the ground in the box, both of which were connected to a single pole switch, one must be the incomming power and the other is connected to the load. You can find out which is which either by opening up the fixture box where you will probably find that it is conneted with two white wires or by very carefully positioning the wires so they each are far from touching anything, turning the power on, and testing to see which is hot.
If the dimmer you have does not require you to know the difference between the hot and load wire, then just connect the white and black wires to the dimmer. As the previous poster said, the white wire should have black tape on it.

Yes, change out the switch. When those switches go out they get burned up sometimes. Make sure you have the power off while your fixing the unit. And clean up the charred wire use the right connector to reattach.
Good Luck. Please rate your experience.
Have a super weekend!

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.

Wire down from a double pole to a single pole switch which color Black or white goes on the top screw?

You question does not make sense to electrician.
So add a comment with more detail.

Here's what I can say so far:
1) Single-pole switches have 2 brass screws plus green ground screw. Line and Load wires connect to either screw.

2) Double-pole switches have 2 brass, 2 dark, and green ground screw. Do continuity test with multimeter to check relationship between screws.

3) Some people say double-pole when they mean 3-way switch, that has 2 brass, 1 dark, and green ground screw. Dark screw is 'common' for both Line and Load wires.
Screws are color-coded and tell electrician how to wire device.

Electricians don't guess, they test. So if there is confusion, electrician will test wiring before connecting switch.
That's as far as I can go without more information.

Please add a comment and give full information what you are doing, and what color screws you are working with, and how many different cables enter the box, and what relationship is between single-pole and double-pole switch.

Does this switch wire like a normal single pole switch ? Why does it look like a three way switch? and why is the so called ground screw silver like the nuteral

I am not sure which switch you have. The Hubbell HBL 1281 is shown in the catalog as a single pole switch. It comes in several models. One model has a single lever that goes up (ON) and goes down (OFF).
Another model is a push button. Push once and it is ON, push again and it is OFF.
The above two switches are to be wired to break the hot (black) wire going to the controlled device. Hot should be connected to the bottom, generally, load should be connected to the top.
There is no NEUTRAL wire location. If there is a ground screw, it should be green.

There is also a three position model that operates two circuits, the middle position is OFF for both circuits, the top is ON for one circuit and the bottom is ON for the second circuit.

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.

What does the blue wire hook to

The blue wire always goes to Load (light fan motor)

If you have Intermatic ST01C or EJ500, see wiring illustration on following page:
If this is not your timer, then add a comment.

Wiring is dependent if you are replacing single pole switch or 3-way switch.

For single pole switch replacement:
Old switch has two wires.
Connect these wires to timer blue wire and timer black wire, in either order for now.
Green connects to bare ground wire.

Turn power ON.
Click timer on-off button.
If lights turn ON-and-OFF, then timer is wired correctly.
If lights do not turn ON-and-OFF, then reverse blue and black wires.
Timer red wire is capped off with wire nut

If your lights involuntarily blink after pushing ON-OFF button, then timer red wire is connected where timer blue wire should be connected.

For 3-way switch replacement, there is also a wiring diagram shown on link above.
Keep in mind that ST01C and EJ350 cannot replace a 3-way switch wire-for-wire.
Blue wire must always go to Load.
The other 3-way switch is also wired differently.
Add a comment with careful description of your wire colors and I will respond.

GE Timer #15086 has red, white, green, black wires. Wall has white, black & black wires and switch sits between 3 other light switches. (I am replacing the current timer which only has 3 wires and...

GE 15086 programmable timer replaces single-pole switch only.
Single pole means 1 device turns Load on-off.
3-way is where 2 devices turn Load on-off, for example 2 switches located in hallway.

Your existing timer has white, black and blue wires.
Your new timer has white, black, red and green wires.
Green wire connects to bare ground wire in every occasion with every wiring device.

Electricians don't guess, they test the other wires.

Remove old timer.
Separate wires for testing.
Turn on power.
Tape ordinary tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester will light up on Hot wire. The Hot wire will connect to timer black wire.
Now test Hot wire to each other wire (except bare ground)
Tester will light up on Neutral wire. Neutral wire connects to timer white wire.

The remaining wire connects to timer red wire.
After connecting timer, push manual override button to check that Load turns on-off.

Manual override on 15086 is the door that covers buttons > use door as push button to check Load.
Next, program the timer.
Programming is straightforward and similar to other timers.
If you have a problem, add a comment.

What color plug where i ve got three colors blue,red,black

If I understand correctly, you are replacing a switch with the EJ500 timer.
You mention a 'plug'

The EJ500 has 3 wires: Black Red Blue.
If you are replacing a single-pole switch:
The switch has 2 wires, one of these wires is the Hot-from-breaker and the other wire goes to Load:
Timer-black connects to Hot-from-breaker.
Timer-blue connects to wire-going-to-Load.
Timer-red wire is capped off. Red is not used for single pole switch.
If you connect wires and your lights blink, then you put the red wire where the blues wire should go.
If you connect wires and lights do not operate, try reversing the blue and black wires.

I posted images of EJ500 wiring (the Intermatic EJ500 and ST01C have identical wiring

If you are replacing a 3-way switch, the wiring is more complicated.
The EJ500 can not replace a 3-way switch wire-for-wire.
Diagrams on link above show wiring for 3-way.
Add a comment if you need more help.

How do you wire a Two Single Pole Switch for each switch to run seperate lights all off of one circuit. Example: Recess Lights on one switch and a Track light on the other switch. 6 black wires, 6 white...

so 6 grounds is connected together, and conneted to mains ground (direct connection), the white wires is (mains Neutral) and you connect all 6 white wires together (to doble pole safety switch) in one end pole switch, and you connect a wire from another pole the same end at common Two Single Pole Switch and connect (Black wires recess lights) to one free pole switch and (Black wires track lights) to another free pole.

The mains connect to safety switch live (Black or Brown) to another free safety switch pole, Neutral (White or blue) to free safety switch pole and earth to ground wires on mains connector.

Note: Allways use a mains 300mA diferencial safety switch, for better protection.

Switch connections

I have a Jenn-air, and the switch for blower and light is on top, front. the switch has 4 connections on the bottom, and viewed from the bottom, the white wire goes at 12 o'clock, the red and brown wires are in the top left corner (paired with the white one) and the black wire is at 6 o'clock, and the blue (double wires) goes in the lower right corner (paired with the black one). If you have a continuity tester, the switch is a dpdt, and white is connected to red-brown (double wires) OR black is connected to blue-blue( double wire).

Hope this helps.
