We have a fan 60 minute push button timer we purchased and installed with a 3-wire system. WE need to purchase another one but they all have 4 wires now. Where can we purchase a 3-wire one.


It sounds like you have mechanical push-button type timer.
I need more information to avoid guessing which timer is best for your situation.

I'm not sure what a 3-wire system is?
Add a comment
1) How many switches control same fan
2) What color wires inside box.

Is this
3) low-horsepower bathroom fan?
4) other fan, for example: higher horsepower attic fan, 3/4 horsepower industrial kitchen fan, or 1-horsepower whole house fan?
5) Is this your home or is fan for continual commercial use?

6) Is this a countdown timer that turns fan OFF automatically after 60 minutes?
7) Or what kind of timer are you looking for.

Open following link for list of home-use countdown timers and horsepower ratings of countdown timers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Countdown-timer-horsepower-ratings.html

Spring-wound timers do not require extra Neutral wire, and can control 1 HP whole-house fan.
The push-button timers each require Neutral wire to run electronics inside timer, and they range from 1/6 HP to 3/4 HP which will work for any bathroom fan.

Installed several GE smart digital timers around the house: for lights over garage, front door, court yard. They are model 15086. The units work in timer mode as desired. I would think...


15086 timer:
Pressing door will override timer setting and manually turn switch ON-OFF.
Press door or open timer door, and press any of 4 buttons located in corners.
You know information posted so far:

However, you are moving the small switch from Timer to OFF.
And when switch is OFF, the override does not work because circuit is OFF.
You want a timer that can switch programming OFF, and not switch circuit OFF, so that device toggles between timer and ordinary switch.

Looking at timers on the market today, I cannot think of any in-wall programmable or box timer that does what you want. Each has manual override that reverses timer function, but when you set timer to OFF, the circuit is OFF.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Programmable.html#Aube

Plug-in-type timers have override button that turns programming off, and then you can operate table lamp normally with the lamp switch. But in that case, the lamp has separate switch that operates outside of timer functions.

GE 15070 24-hour mechanical timer could do what you want:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/GE-15070-mechanical-timer.jpg
In this specific case, when you wanted to operate timer like a light switch, you would move all the pins inward, and then use the on-off switch. The problem with this idea is the pins are tiny, and you need very good eyes or a light-source and small tool to continually adjust pins.

See GE timers and manuals:

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.

10 year old timer will not shut off any more


It's broken.
I have a FF series countdown timer on a water heater circuit that's been used for past 4 years.
The FF and FD series timers are heavy duty, spring-wound countdown timers.
I expect 10 years is a good lifespan.
You can buy a new spring-wound countdown timer at Home Depot or Lowes, but new ones are lighter weight than the good ol' Intermatic.

Grainger sells the FF60 (60 minute, metal cover)
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Spring-Wound-Timer-6X546?Pid=search
Grainger shows the FD60 (60 minute, plastic)
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Spring-Wound-Timer-1XC27?Pid=search

Grainger Intermatic timers shows a lot of FF and FD timer choices:
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/intermatic/ecatalog/N-1z0r56r
There are several pages of Intermatic timers:
FF5minute thru FF12hour
FD15minute thru FD60minute

I would like to install a Pass & Seymour RT1 Timer for my jacuzzi tub. 2 gang box contains white and black wires for the GFCI and white and black wires to the tub. how do I make this connection


I answer questions for free.
I specialize in timers and electrical devices.
My answer might ask for more information, and you can add a comment and we can go further.
The RT1 is a digital countdown timer rated for 120Volt 600 watts.

1) You need to consider the wattage of your jacuzzi circuit.
If circuit operates a motor, then check the nameplate on that motor for wattage.
The RT1 is too lightweight for 756Watt 1HP motor.
The RT1 will not work on a 240Volt circuit.
If the circuit operates lights only, then add up the wattage of your bulbs.

The Pass-Seymour site does not have a manual for the product that describes the intended purpose of the timer. For example some timers say 'incandescent only.'

2) Understand your wiring so we can get a timer that works:
You have a 2 gang box.
The box has a GFCI and no other device.
The GFCI has 4 screws
One cable enters box from breaker box with black and white ... and these wires connect to GFCI
One cable enters box from jacuzzi with black and white ... and these wires connect to GFCI

3) If the circuit is 120V.
Next we are going to talk about the cable going to jacuzzi.
Disconnect black wire going to jacuzzi.
Timer-black connects where this wire was connected.
Timer-red wire connects to black wire going to jacuzzi

The timer-white connects to the same screw that white-wire-going-to-jacuzzi connects to.
So there are two white wires on one screw.

If RT1 is too lightweight
You need a countdown timer rated for the circuit.
Intermatic makes a spring-wound FD series countdown timer that is rated for 2 HP

The Intermatic FD series timers can also be used if jacuzzi is 240Volt
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/in-wall%20timers/decorator%20spring%20wound%20timers.aspx

Add a comment, and I will help with more detailed information how to connect the FD series timers and answer any question about the FD.
