Florescent bulbs are not discontinued.




Incandescent bulbs are being phased out so you can save electricity to run your great-big 600 watt TV....
http://waterheatertimer.org/What-is-3-phase-electric.html



Or, in a few years from now, you can support the economy and buy another timer:

Buy new EJ600... same keypad as EJ500, except different wiring since neutral wire required

or

Buy ST01 or Ei600 timer: identical wiring to EJ500, same dawn-dusk or programmable options, higher load rating, works with any voltage, CFL, LED etc, different programming steps, different battery.

Ej500 has 1 year wareanty

ST01 has 1 year warranty

Ei600 has 5 year warranty

Intermatic ej500 fuse


Why did fuse blow?
Is timer under-rated for load on line?
Do wire size and breaker size match?
EJ500 is rated incandescent-only with maximum 500 watts, with temp range from 32 to 104 F, maximum distance 100' from load, and timer has 1 year warranty against defects.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire.html

Try resetting timer.
This will delete both programs and current time settings.
Hold down on-off button, and press and release reset button.
Keep holding on-off button until display changes, and 12:00 is flashing.

If timer will not reset, try changing battery.

Simple power outages, and blown fuses can cause power surge that will knock out timers. This is a common problem, and resetting timer can usually solve problem.
Timers like outdoor power pack, and analog plug-in timers do not have reset button and can easily fail after ordinary power outage.

I have a Intermatic Wall Timer Model EJ500 and I only have 3 wires and can I usethe Wood Model #59028 and where can I get one if it works. I had a single pole switch when I installed the Intermatic. The...


Yes you can use 59028 if you have Neutral or bare ground wire.

EJ500 is battery operated.
Woods 59028 uses electricity to power internal electronics. Like plugging in alarm clock so timer mechanism works.
That's why 59028 has white wire and EJ500 does not.

EJ500 can be used for 3-way switching, so it has extra red wire that is capped off in single pole operation. EJ500 blue wire connects to Load (light,fan, motor)

59028 is for single pole only. The red wire connects to Load.

Here's how to wire 59028:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59028
1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire.
2) Connect 59028 red wire where EJ500 blue wire was connected.
3) Connect 59208 black wire where EJ500 black wire was connected.
4) When electric box does not have white neutral wires, then connect timer-white to bare ground.
5) Turn on electricity, and push door on 59028 timer to activate on-off override. If Load comes on, timer is wired correctly. If Load does not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

I am an electrician and my client wants me to reprogram the digital timer (Intermatic) I don't know the model # but it looks like the one on the previous page. Probably the most popular digital wall timer...


Below are links to digital timers to help identify your timer.
Manuals for each timer appear on page.
Programming takes patience, which might be why your customer wants you to do it.
And these 1-year warranty timers go bad, and then timer will not reprogram, which may be another reason why customer wants you to do it.
Intermatic EJ500 and ST01C are battery operated, and will not program if battery is low.
Aube has rechargeable battery that is not replaceable, and this timer will not program if battery is bad.
Other timers shown below have clocks that operate on 120V circuit and require white neutral before display lights up.

Generally each programming is same: You set current time. Some timers you set daylight savings time. Some timers are 7-day, and some offer dusk-to-dawn. For 7-day, you set event1 ON and then event1 OFF for up to 7 programs. You choose the days for each event to operate. Before programming, make a schedule so there are no overlaps or conflicts in programming.
With Intermatic EJ500 and ST01C, event1 is the ON event and event2 is the OFF event, up to 40 events.

Add a comment if you hit trouble spot when programming.
Also fixya offers live phone support for a price.

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.
