T185 timer is ordinary Intermatic T101 timer
Probably red wire connects to terminal 2, and blue wire to terminal A

SOURCE: I bought a Utilitech 7 day digital in wall timer,

HI .. if the switch has only a black and white wire attached, and there are no other wires in the wall box, then you cannot use this timer switch. You need to return it and get a timer that does not use a neutral connection. The wires you have are a switch leg from the light and there is a white wire but it is not a neutral.
If there are other wires in that wall box , tell me and we can chat more about how to remedy this .

Please Vote !!

SOURCE: Help with Woods 59018/59028 7 day digital timer

The usual connection for this type timer is the house black power to the timer black, the house white power to the timer white and the , the light black wire to the red timer wire.
If you only have two wires, one black and one white, at the switch location, then you cannot use this style timer , as it needs a neutral. You should return this timer and get one that does not require a neutral connection.

Please Vote !!

SOURCE: I lost my Leviton 6230M 30 mins timer installation sheet.

Switch has 2 black wires. One black is hot wire. One black is wire going to fan. Turn off power. Remove wires from switch and separate. Turn power back on. Using ordinary tester, test each black wire to bare copper ground wire. Only one of the black wires will test hot. The other black wire goes to fan.
Timer black wire connects to black hot
Timer blue wire connects to black wire going to fan
Timer white wire connects to white neutral (in absence of white neutral, connect Timer white wire to bare ground)
Timer green connects to bare ground wire

SOURCE: I am trying to install

1) Wires in box:
Black looped to to next switch is Black hot wire
Other Black goes to fixture

2) Connect timer wires
Black timer wire goes to Black hot
Red (or Blue) timer wire goes to fixture
White wire connects to white neutral wires (usually connected together with wire nut and pushed to back of box)
Green goes to bare ground wire

SOURCE: GE digital timer. Instructions say to: 1)

Find the Hot wire:
Your switch has 2 wires. One of these wires is Hot, and one goes to load. Disconnect wires from switch. Turn on power. Do not stand on wet surface. Test each wire to bare copper wire. When tester lights up, that is Hot wire. The other wire goes to load.

Connect wires:
Hot wire goes to Black timer wire
Wire to load goes to Red timer wire
White wire connects to white wires that are twisted together
Bare copper wire connects to Green wire from timer

How to connect white wire to white wires that are twisted together.
a) Strip white timer wire so you have 1-1/2 " of bare wire. Stranded wire will wrap around other wires easily.
b) Remove wire nut. DO NOT UNTWIST wires.
c) Hold all whites together so bare copper lines up. Wrap stranded copper around the twisted wire.
d) Replace wire nut, or use larger wire nut. Twist real tight. Do not use tape. You can solder the connection.
e) When done, pull on white time wire to make sure it is held tight. Push whites back into box.

You posted under ST01C and are wiring timer to replace 3-way switch.
Open following link for specific illustrations:
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#ST01C
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/ST01C-explanation.rtf

1) The timer replaces one of the 3-way switches. The other 3-way switch remains, but must be rewired.
2) The timer must replace the 3-way switch that receives power from breaker box. It cannot replace the other 3-way switch. This is because the timer Black wire must always receive power.
3) The timer blue wire must connect to Load (light)
4) The ST01C red wire is only used when wiring for 3-way.
5) When the red wire and blue wire are connected together, they reverse the timer program. When timer red and blue are disconnected, the timer resumes programming. Connecting and disconnecting the red and blue wires is how the timer mimics 3-way operation.
6) The remaining 3-way switch must be wired so it will connect and disconnect the red and blue timer wires. So the remaining 3-way switch has to be rewired to meet specific timer wiring.

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.

Only have two wires to connect to


What timer are you installing?

Intermatic battery-operated timer with red, blue, black and green
Green connects to bare ground
Red is capped off.
Blue connects to one wire
Black connects to other wire
Push on-off button: if light comes on, timer wiring is correct.
If light does not come on, then reverse blue and black wires.

Other in-wall timers except Aube have red, black, white and green
Green goes to bare ground
Red connects to one wire
Black connects to other wire.
White: in back of electrical box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect white white to these other white wires.
If box does not have white wires described above, then connect white wire to bare ground along with green wire.
Push on-off or override switch: if light comes on, timer wiring is correct.
If light does not come on, then reverse red and black wires.

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.

Single pole application, red wire is capped off.
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#ST01C

That being said, you still have to connect Blue and Black wires correctly.
Switch has two wires, if you do not know which wire is which, follow instructions below.
Connect Blue and Black to either wire.
Turn on power.
Push ON-OFF button.
If lights work, then timer is wired correctly.
If lights don't work, then reverse Blue and Black.

Be sure outdoor bulb is working.
I have a long story about that, and tested every wire and breaker ... and bulb was burned out.

Wiring of the 2-5-10-15 timer to a jucuzee bath tub it has three wires black blue green. Thanks. Terry.


First thing to consider is size of Load.
Leviton countdown-timer Load rating is 1800 Watt, 120Volt.
Look inside Jacuzzi at rating plate on motor.
Rating plate on motor should give Volts, Watts and Amps.
Formula Volts x Amps = Watts.
Sometimes motor shows VA which is Watts
Is Jacuzzi on 240Volt breaker or 120V breaker?
Leviton countdown timer is not for 240V load.

A) If 120Volt electric Load checks out, here's how to wire timer if 1 cable enter box.
Timer-black-wire connects to jacuzzi-black
Timer-white-wire connects to ground.
Timer-green connects to ground.
Timer-red connects to jacuzzi-blue.

B) Here's how to wire timer if 2 cables enter box.
120Volt cable coming from breaker box has black, white and bare copper wire.
Timer-black-wire connects to black-wire-from-breaker
Timer-white-wire connects to white-wire-from-breaker-box.
Timer-green and jacuzzi-ground connect to ground

Timer-red-wire connects to jacuzzi-black-wire.

Jacuzzi-blue-wire connects to white.
I am puzzled why this wire is blue if circuit is 120Volt.

My switch has only a white wire (hot) and a black wire (neutral). Witch one dose the red wire connect to?


I answer questions for free
I specialize in timers and electrical devices
If you have a different timer than the one shown below, add a comment with your timer model and I will help.
Different timers use the red wire differently.

You posted under Intermatic ST01C.
If the ST01C is your timer, then the red wire is capped off.
The black-timer wire connects to black wire.
The blue-timer wire connects to white wire.

IF the timer does not work after wiring, then try reversing the blue and black wires.

The following photo shows the EJ500 timer which is wired exactly like the ST01C

The following link shows several wiring diagrams for the ST01C and EJ500 timers

Installing a 7 day digital wall timer


Swylite LST100 timer has 4 wires. Red, Blue, Black, White
Timer has more wires than wall switch because timer has electric clock inside. And with + series Swylite timer, it also has led bulb that needs power.

Timer can replace ordinary on-off switch
-On-off switch has 2 screws, so 2 wires (plus ground wire) connect to on-off switch
-Three of the four timer wires are used when replacing on-off switch
-Red wire is not used, it is capped off

Timer can replace 3-way switch
-Three way switch has 3 screws, so 3 wires (plus ground wire) connect to 3-way switch
-One of the screws on 3-way switch is colored dark (it is crucial to identify the wire that comes off dark screw so timer can be wired correctly)

Lets replace on-off switch see diagram
Timer black goes to Hot wire
Timer blue goes to Load (light, fan, motor)
Timer white goes to Neutral
Timer red is capped off.

How to check which wire is Hot, Neutral and Load
Switch you are replacing has 2 wires > one is Hot, the other goes to Load
Remove these two wires. Separate wires so you can test. Turn on power. Tape tester leads to wood sticks so hands are away from power. Test each wire to bare copper wire.
When tester lights up >> that is Hot wire >> please connect this wire to Timer black wire
The other wire goes to Load >> please connect this wire to Timer blue wire.
Now test for Neutral. Test Hot wire to other wires inside box. Neutral should be white. When tester lights up, that is Neutral. Please connect Timer white wire to neutral. IF YOU DO NOT have a neutral, you can connect Timer white to bare ground wire until you have time to drop a Neutral into the box.

Replace a 3-way switch see diagram
Three-way switch has 3 wires.
Identify which wire connects to Dark screw on switch >> and then please connect this wire to Timer Black wire.
Timer white wire connects to Neutral
Timer blue and red wires connect to other two wires that came off switch ... they connect to either one.

Hello, I have 2 black wires coming from the junction box, and a copper ground wire. I connected the green wire to the ground. Where do I connect the red, white, and black wires?


The timer should have red, black,blue and green wires. (no white?) If you have only the two black wires coming from junction box, then connect green to ground like you did. Connect the incoming black (HOT) to the black wire on the timer.connect the outgoing (to the light) to the blue wire on the timer. Cap of with wire nut the red wire. This is for a single pole switch installation (Only switch for the light) If this is for a 3-way control (where you have 2 or more switches) then you use the red.
