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.

SOURCE: installing a GE digital wall

Review:
Black goes to Hot wire from breaker box
Red wire goes to Load (light, fan, motor)
White wire goes to Neutral
Green to bare copper ground wire

Orientation:
Your original switch had 2 wires plus bare ground.
One of these wires is Hot, the other goes to Load.
You said original wires are Red and Black

How do you find Hot wire?
-Your original switch had 2 wires.
-Remove timer from box.
-Pull original 2 wires out where you can test them
-Turn on power
-Use regular tester
-Tape tester leads to wood sticks so your hands stay away from voltage
-Power is on
-Test each original wire to bare ground wire
-When tester lights up, that is Hot wire ... this wire connects to Black wire on timer
- The other wire goes to Load so it connects to Red wire on timer

How to test for Neutral wire
Test Hot wire to your white wires - No need to untwist them.
When tester lights up, that is Neutral
White wire from timer connects to Neutral.
Green goes to ground wire.

How to reset timer
I'm not sure which timer you have. Probably GE 15086. Reset is small round button below HOUR button. Use paper clip and push-in reset until timer flashes 12 o'clock.

SOURCE: For an intermatic EJ341 spring wound timer, there

Switch has 2 wire > one of these wires is Hot and it connects to Timer black wire > the other wire goes to Load and connects to Timer red wire.

If you get these two wires reversed, timer will not run, so switch them. You know timer is running when dial on front of timer rotates with passing time. You can test for Hot wire by taking out switch, separate wires, turn on power, test each wire to bare ground, tester lights up with Hot wire.

Timer white wire goes Neutral. This wire is necessary to run clock inside timer. Locate Neutral wire inside box >> it is usually two or more white wires twisted together and pushed to back of box. If you do not have a Neutral wire, connect Timer white wire to bare ground wire ... until you can hire electrician to run additional wire to box.

It won't stop filling up


In the back of the washer where the hoses connect is a solenoid/valve.
The color of the plastic that you see when you remove the hoses is the color of this valve. Very often it is blue plastic.
The valve is replaceable, and yours has likely stuck in the open position.
Behind the valve inside the machine are two or 3 electric wires that tell the valve to open or close.
They are hooked to the timer control.
Unless the timer itself is bad, the valve is your problem.
God bless your efforts.

Hello, Having the same power supply voltage to the coil of the relay, pin 7, and also the thing you want to stay on for more seconds, pin 8, will not work. When you kill the power to the relay the other thing will go off right away as well and a few seconds later, you will hear the relay switch. I made a diagram to show how it works to have a solenoid valve close 30 seconds after the water pumps stops. This is to let the water slow down before the valve closes to prevent water hammering.o,

Good Morning Jake, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

The water valve on this particular unit has a constant supply of line voltage whenever the lid is closed. The neutral is supplied through the timer or temperature select switch. If water is flowing through the valve constantly, the valve could be stuck open or there could be a short to ground on neutral side. Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. I would strongly recommend connecting with a professional to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause. You can often locate a qualified service provider through the manufacturer website.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Your testing of the solenoid was good. My question is this... when the timer stops do you still get the magnetic attraction? If I interpet this correctly; the answer is no. So we are dealing with a power problem. Power comes from the timer straight to the COLD solenoid. (Blue wire)

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/sect/i/e/j/iejjijajjf.gif (wiring diagram)

Power comes in to the TIMER from the lid switch on the red wire of terminal 12. It is supposed to be then routed to Yellow wire terminal 3 and the internal contacts of the timer (buss 14) connect power to the BLUE wire 5B. If your not getting power at the timer 5B / Blue wire lid closed the problem is inside the timer. Just make sure the timer connections discussed above are correct ON the timer.

How do I install a T8845pv sprinkler timer. What do I attach to the two yellow wires


http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/files/intermatic/products/instructions/timers/t8845pv%20-%20english.ashx

The timer is used to power a low-voltage sprinkler solenoid valve.
A solenoid is an electrical switch that opens and closes a gas line or water line.

The yellow wires go to your sprinkler system solenoid valve.
The solenoid is the valve that turns water on-and-off.

The 120Volt electric cable that runs the timer connects to the Line and Neutral terminals.
Black to Line terminal, white to neutral terminal

The clock repeats each 24 hours.
Lift and rotate dial until current time lines up with silver pointer

The skipper wheel has pins >> press pin down for each day you do not want watering
Rotate skipper wheel counterclockwise until current day lines up with 14 arrow

Put tripper pins on yellow dial
Each pin represents 12 minutes of watering
To water for 48 minutes, put in 4 consecutive pins
Put pins on wheel at the time you want watering to take place.
To water twice a day, put pins at two different times, and do not put any pins between those times.

I took my car to get an emission and the P1105 code occured. MYcar is a 1997 nissan maxima.


P1105 = MAP/BARO Pressure Switch Solenoid Valve

The problem is in the map sensor circuit, it could be solenoid valve. Check the vacum line that goes to the MAP sensor.

From the B14 Factory Service Manual, has a procedure for checking the MAP/BARO solenoid valve when P1105 is tripped. It is rather complex, and you will need a volt meter, but...

1- Warm up the car and pull the vacuum hose connected to the MAP/BARO switch solenoid with the engine idling. There should be vacuum there (~ -20in Hg). If NG, replace the hose.
2- Check the vacuum hose between the Absolute Pressure Sensor and the solenoid for splits/cracks and clogging (blow through it).
3- With the engine off, disconnect the solenoid electrical connector. Turn the ignition switch on. Check the voltage between terminal 2 (brown wire) and ground. It should be 12v (battery voltage). If no voltage, check the 10a fuse #21.
4- Check Absolute Pressure Sensor. Remove the sensor with its wiring connected. (Located near the top of the firewall next to the cruise control actuator [disk-shaped on a bracket]). Remove the hose and turn the ignition on. Voltage between terminal #2 (white wire) and ground should be 3.2-4.8v. Apply a vacuum to the hose and the voltage should be 1-1.4v lower than the first reading. If NG, the sensor is bad.
5- Check the solenoid. Remove the solenoid electrical connector and hoses and check the air passage continuity by applying 12v to the connections. With 12v on, there should be continuity between the two close hose connections, and no connection between the lone connector and the double connection closest to it. With no voltage applied it should be the opposite (no continuity between the close ones, and continuity between the far one and the closest double one). If NG the solenoid is bad.

I hope this help.

My Bosch SHU66C is not filling with water. Timer


HI. First you will need to make sure you are getting water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you are receiving water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case the valve should be inspected and replaced, if needed. Us the procedure below to guide you through the inspection process.

To access the inlet valve remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel. The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it. One hose will lead from the valve to the pump/motor assembly in the center of the dishwasher. Check that the hoses are securely connected to the valve and that there are no kinks in the hoses which could restrict water flow. There are two wires (four, if it has two solenoids) connected to the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced. Use a continuity tester or multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. A reading of infinity indicates a bad solenoid that must be replaced. Different brands and models will have various measurements, but the valve should show some resistance if it is functioning properly. If your valve has two solenoids, test the second one in the same way as the first.

The first cycle does not have hot water - the sink right next to it has hot water - the other cycles have hot water???


Most washing machine timers are digital or mechanical. The timer controls most of the operations of the washer: water level, tub filling and emptying, length of cycles, and cycle setting sequences. For this reason, any repairs to the timer should be made by a professional service person. However, there are a couple of checks you can make when you suspect the timer is faulty -- you may be able to install a new timer yourself.

Step 1: Unplug the washer. To access the timer, remove the control knobs and the panel that covers the controls. This may be a front panel, or access may be through a panel at the back of the unit. Carefully examine the wires that connect the timer to the other parts of the washer. If the wires are loose or disconnected, try pushing them into position; they usually fit into their terminals like plugs. Use long-nosed pliers to avoid breaking the wire connections -- never pull a wire by hand.

Step 2: To test the timer, use a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the power leads to the timer and clip one probe of the VOM to each lead. The VOM should read zero if the timer is working. Since the timer is a multiple switch, turn it through its cycle and test each pair of terminals in turn. The meter should read zero at all of these points. If one or more readings are above zero, the timer is faulty and should be replaced.
Step 3: To replace the timer, unscrew and disconnect the old one. Install a new timer made specifically for the washing machine. If there are many wires on the timer, have a helper hold the new timer next to the old one as you work. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are properly made. Or, draw a diagram showing the connections before removing the old timer. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for correctness and screw the timer assembly into place.
In the next section, we will examine two of the most crucial elements of a washing machine -- the water inlet valves and the agitator.
Servicing Water Inlet Valves
If the washer won't fill or fills very slowly, if it overfills, or if the water is the wrong temperature, the water inlet valves could be faulty. These components are easy to locate and very easy to replace, at little cost. When you suspect an inlet valve is faulty, first check to make sure the water faucets are fully turned on and properly connected to the hot and cold inlets of the valves. Then check the screens in the valves; if they're clogged, clean or replace them. If water doesn't enter the tub, set the temperature control to the HOT setting. If there is no water, set the control to the WARM setting. If all that comes out is cold water, the hot-water inlet valve is faulty. Reverse the procedure to test the cold-water valve, setting the control first on COLD and then on WARM. If the tub overfills, unplug the washer. If water still flows into the tub, the valve is stuck open. In any of these cases, the valves should probably be replaced. To check the valve assembly:


how-to-repair-a-washing-machine-2.jpg
©2006 Publications International, Ltd.
If an inlet valve is faulty, check the water connection and the
valve screens. Try gently tapping the solenoids;
if this doesn't work, replace the inlet valve assembly.

Step 1: Remove the back service panel and disconnect the hot-water and cold-water hoses to the valves.

Step 2: Remove the hoses connected to the valves inside the cabinet. Also disconnect the wires from the terminals. Back out the screws holding the valves to the machine. The inlet valves have solenoids (a coil of wire that carries a current) inside the housing. These can be tested, but chances are the valves are simply worn out.

Step 3: Tap the solenoids with a screwdriver handle. If this doesn't work, replace the entire inlet valve assembly. Repairs usually cost more than a new part. Make sure the replacement valve assembly is exactly the same type as the old one. Install it in reverse order of the way you disconnected the old one.

Dishwasher not getting water


Check the solenoid on the water valve.

The water supply connects to the dishwasher water valve, two wires are connected to the solenoid. An OHM meter will tell if this is good. If good, set meter to volts and see if 110 is getting to the solenoid, you will have to turn the timer to the point where water should be coming in.
