The EJ500C is designed only for standard incandescent lights, not chandelier bulbs, CFLs, etc. Replace it with the ST01C, and you'll be fine. Intermatic may even exchange it for you if you if you complain to them.

Question posted under Intermatic timer:
Open following link to identify timer and download possible manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html

IF Intermatic timer stopped working because battery failed, then all that's needed is to reprogram current time, because the original timer programs you set are stored inside timer forever until timer is manually reset using reset button.

If you have Intermatic ST01C timer, then open following page for ez instructions:
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html

If you need help programming specific timer, then get as far along in manual as possible, and then add a comment.

If you have different brand timer, than each brand has link that shows on Intermatic page.

Can't plug 400watt ballast into a digital timer,bulb won't light.


How did you connect the 2 cords if they don't match up ? Usually the cord configuration on just about anything electrical is for a reason . It is to keep from plugging inthe wrong things ! It is possible that your digital ballst won't run your fixture due to miss matched intternal parts . One may be magnetic and one digital electronic .

Can I install a utilitech Dusk-to-Dawn light control, #0314355 in a 'horizontal' position, rather than the 'vertical position shown on the packaging? It goes 'on-and off' in a 15 s


Timer is probably wired incorrectly.
Copy following links for correct wiring, and larger instructions.
I have tested this timer, and some problems can also be caused by overlapping and conflicting programs: reset timer and review timer instructions:

CEILING FAN WORKS,BUT REMOTE ONLY WORKS THE FAN SECTION, WILL NOT DIM LIGHTS NOR TURN OFF LIGHTS ONLY SO WE CAN USE FAN ONLY. WHAT DO WE HAVE TO DO?


Fist, make sure the bulbs are good. Check in another fixture to verify that they indeed work. Since the remote works the fan, dead batteries can be ruled out. The problem will be confined to either a bad receiver in the fixture, or a bad remote.

Since Hampton Bay is a line carried by Home Depot, you may have some luck bringing your remote to HD and trying it out on the display units. You may need to try different address settings on the remote to find one that works if you don't get results the first time. This is usually several two position switches often called "DIP Switches". Change the positions of them one at a time until you find one that works. Try to control a fan first. Once you find a fan the reacts to the commands from the remote, try to control the light. If the light doesn't work - the remote has a bad transmitter or light switch control. You could attempt to disassemble the switch, but most don't have parts that look different when they're bad. You'll probably have to replace the remote.

If the lights work, then the problem is with your fixture. You can remove or simply bypass the radio controller in the fixture and install an after market receiver and remote to control it again. These are sold at Home Depot and work with any paddle fan.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Dusk to dawn light flickers on and off sometimes says on for hour or two then 5 minutes off and on installed new bulb and checked wire connections still flickers charlie


I answer questions for free here at fixya.
I know timers and electrical devices.
If the following information does not help, add a comment and I will work on the problem further.

You posted under the Intermatic ST01C timer.
I assume this is not a new installation, so we know the wiring is correct, and your programming worked correctly in the past.
You have the timer set up for dusk to dawn.

The manual has troubleshoot section.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-st01c.pdf

I have read the manual and tested&wired the timer and programmed the timer.

A low battery can cause this kind of problem, even if BATT is not flashing on screen.
The manual also says when encountering a problem, you can reset and then reprogram the timer.
The manuals says to check for loose wires, and defective bulb.
The timer does not work on circuits longer than 100'
The timer does not work if there are underground wires.

The symptoms you describe sound like loose wires or a light bulb.
I would check the wire nuts at the timer and at the outdoor fixture.
Change the outdoor bulbs.
As last resort, reprogram the timer.
These electronic devices go bad, and the ST01C has a 1 year warranty >>> combine the short warranty with the long troubleshooting section, I believe the product fails frequently.

Lights flicker on ceiling fan: We have 4 cfl bulbs in a ceiling fan light fixture that have recently started to flicker. They've been there for a while without the problem, so it's not a matter of a new...


It is not a ceiling fan or wiring problem. It is your bulbs. Normal CFL bulbs do not work in dimmers or with remotes. Remotes work on RF signals and cause interference with the bulbs. You may also notice a buzzing sound and the lights may not go out when you turn off the switch. It is a fire hazard, can invalidate your warranty on the bulbs and will shorten their life. Try changing the bulbs to the new dimmable CFL's and see if it helps. It should eliminate your problem altogether.

New Leviton 'lighted, decorative' switch flickers when off


You cannot use standard electronic dimmer switches with CFL bulbs, only incandesant bulbs! That is why you are getting the flickering.

With CFL's bulbs installed in a light fixture that has a non-flouresant rated dimmer switch on that circuit, you will cause the standard dimmer to fail.

You have to look at the dimmer package (sometimes printed on the back of the dimmer itself too) to see if it can be used with CFL bulbs,as many are not rated for use with anything other than standard incandesant bulbs.


Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!
