Xmas light installer used 3 photocell timers, is there a way to sync all 3 to come on at same time


He probably used 3 timers because the lenght (or qty of lights on each strand) of lights isn't supposed to be connected to another lenght of wires/lights because the gage (size) of the wires are too small to carry all the load (resistance). It may overheat, start a fire or blow a fuse/breaker.

The instructions on the Xmas light box should explained this. Normally it'll say only 2 strands of lights can be plugged into each other. Any more than 2 strands normally needs another outlet or timer.

That being said there isn't a good way to sync them all together short of ignoring the instructions and just plugging all three strands into each other and just using one timer for all the lights.

Ask to see the installation instructions that came with the lights. You may be able to at least get 2 strands together on one timer.

After installing timer, lights flash on and off.


When lights blink, timer is wired wrong.
Error: The white wire is connected with red-or-blue wire instead of connected to neutral.

Timer has 4 wires: green for ground, black for hot, white for neutral, and red-or-blue wire for Load.

GE has a lot of different number for similar-looking timers without any clear way to tell difference.
Add a comment and say if this timer has dip switches, and what screw terminals appear on the wiring block.

I just installed a GE Smart Digital Timer. After I programmed the timer and went to manually turn on the light the light started to click on and off and the timer ticked?


Timer wiring instructions shown on following page:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15071

You connected the white wire and red wire together, and that is why lights are clicking on-off.
I test timers and have done this intentionally during testing.
Follow instructions shown on link above, and GE timer will work correctly.
Same wiring applies to Tork, Swilight, Utilitec, Woods, Leviton, Intermatic non-battery operated timers.
Instructions are different for Aube, Brinks, UPM and Intermatic battery operated

It sounds like wiring is wrong.

If you have GE Tork Intermatic UPM Woods Brinks Hagar Pass-n-Seymour Stanley Westek in-wall timer, with red, black, white and green wires, then you probably put red and white wires together.

Heres how to wire timer

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, along with timer-green wire.
5) Turn on electricity, and push ON-OFF button > with GE timer, door is push-button switch. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

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.
