This is kind of a long shot but it is worth a try, most appliances have schematics enclosed in a pocket when removing the access panel. Look around the sides and bottom and you should see a paper pocket with the wiring diagrams and color codes for the wires.

Sounds like you have the GE sunsmart timer, and are wiring the timer for single-pole.
Following information does not apply to 3-way timer wiring.
Add a comment if you have different timer.

Start with previous timer:
The previous timer was connected to two wires: Hot wire and Load wire.
Hot wire carries power from circuit breaker.
Load wire connects to fan,light, or motor.

How to wire Sunsmart:
1) Only one wire in the electrical box is Hot. That wire is usually black. Connect black Hot wire to timer-black wire.
2) Load wire connects to timer-blue wire.
3) Timer-red wire is capped off for single-pole wiring.
4) Timer-green wire connects to bare copper wire.
5) Timer-white wire connects to Neutral wire. This will power the timer electronics. The previous timer probably had a battery to power timer electronics. Neutral wires are white wires that are twisted together and covered with wire nut and pushed to back of box.
6) If box does not have Neutral wires, then connect timer-white wire to bare copper ground wire until neutral wire can be run from any nearby outlet box.
7) Try the timer, and if timer does not work, then reverse timer-blue and timer-black.

I have a new 2 speed pool pump. I have the wiring diagram that came with your unit, but I'm not an electrician. Is there any way to get a wiring diagram with the wiring colors noted so I can just do the...


Fixya does not sell Intermatic P1353 timer. We answer questions for do-it-yourselfers like yourself.
Open following link for Intermatic P1353 manuals with wiring and programming diagrams.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#P1353

1) It is very likely that pump wires will change over color-for-color, but I am electrician and would never do that because I would not want to burn out my new motor without poking around first. I would look at manual for old motor and compare with manual for new motor. I would certainly read the new manual and compare where wires are connected to timer.

2) As a general rule with P1353 timer, High speed connects to terminal 4. Low speed connects to terminal 6. The remaining wire connects to terminal 3 with a jumper wire to terminal 5.

3) This information applies only if you are replacing a 2-speed pump, and timer was wired by diagrams shown in the manual, and timer is correctly programmed for MODE2 2-speed pump.

4) You can add a comment for more free help. I will answer back. I know this timer front and back, it is complicated for novice. And you should remember that I do not know what is inside your pump manual unless you tell me, and I do not read minds.

5) You can also pay for fixya expert to work with you while you work on pump.

Is it possible to connect a digital timer(4 wires) to lite fixture with two switches? The switch I am trying to connect to is three pole and a ground


If I understand correctly, your switch has 3 poles, which makes it a 3-way switch.
You confirm this by saying light fixture has two switches.

There are two brands of in-wall timers that will work in 3-way situation. Intermatic and Aube. But only specific models of these timers work for 3-way.

The Intermatic EJ500 and ST01C battery-operated timers can work with 3-way switch. But wiring is tricky to impossible in some cases without extra wiring.
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#ST01C


The easiest timer to wire for 3-way switch is Aube model T1032 which is a 500 watt timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Aube-timers.html
T1032 manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Aube-T1032-timer.pdf
geno_3245_147.jpg
Look at the wiring diagrams carefully.
Note that you are replacing one switch with the timer.
The second switch needs additional jumper wire added to circuit between dark-colored screw and the brass-colored screw that connects back to #1 wire from the timer.

Add a comment if you have this timer, or buy this timer, and need help with wiring.

Need connection diagram Thks


The following diagram is for timers with green, black, white, and red wires:
If your timer is different, add a comment with model number.

geno_3245_66.jpg


Manual says:
Timer-black-wire to Hot; Timer-red-wire to Load (lights)
Timer-white-wire to Neutral.
Here's what to do
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.
5) Turn on electricity, and push manual override button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

What color plug where i ve got three colors blue,red,black


If I understand correctly, you are replacing a switch with the EJ500 timer.
You mention a 'plug'

The EJ500 has 3 wires: Black Red Blue.
If you are replacing a single-pole switch:
The switch has 2 wires, one of these wires is the Hot-from-breaker and the other wire goes to Load:
Timer-black connects to Hot-from-breaker.
Timer-blue connects to wire-going-to-Load.
Timer-red wire is capped off. Red is not used for single pole switch.
If you connect wires and your lights blink, then you put the red wire where the blues wire should go.
If you connect wires and lights do not operate, try reversing the blue and black wires.

I posted images of EJ500 wiring (the Intermatic EJ500 and ST01C have identical wiring
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#ST01C

If you are replacing a 3-way switch, the wiring is more complicated.
The EJ500 can not replace a 3-way switch wire-for-wire.
Diagrams on link above show wiring for 3-way.

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.

Trouble wiring timer


If these lights are on 2 way switch you are going to have to figure out which wire runs to your outside lights. If you aren't familiar with 2 way switches here's a link to a site that will help:

http://2wayswitch.com/2-way-switch-wiring-diagram/

If you look at the diagrams on this site, you will see that ONE of the switches has a wire that runs to the light. I don't know which switch this is in your case.

You also need to decide if you want to be able to override the timer with the switches. Also, please confirm that the switches are 2 way (meaning that you can always turn on the lights from either switch). Sorry I couldn't explain more but I need to know whether the timer has complete control over the lights or if you want the switches to override the timer.

It might be a little trickier than you might think. Good luck and be careful.

Need a wiring diagram for installing a EJ500C in place of a 3-way


Locate the COMMON wire
connected to first old switch.
It might be attached to a different
colored screw, or find
markings on old switch.
Connect BLACK wire from
switch timer to COMMON
wire, using a twist connector.
Connect the other two wires from the old switch to either the
BLUE and RED wires from the switch timer.
Connect the ground wire from the box to the BARE COPPER
wire on the switch timer. If there is no ground wire, ground the
switch timer to the box. If the box is plastic, connect the bare
copper wire to ground as supplied or contact an electrician.
Locate the COMMON on the second old switch of the 3-way pair.
Connect jumper wire (supplied) from the COMMON terminal
to either of the other terminals on the remote 3-way switch.
Make sure all twist connectors are tight.
Tuck wires into wall boxes leaving room for the devices.
Mount the devices into the wall boxes, then install the wall plates.
Turn power back on at the service panel.
Make sure the switch timer displays “MAN” mode. Do the following
test with the remote switch in each of its 2 positions:
Press the NEXT ON/OFF button on the switch timer several
times. Each time that you push the
NEXT ON/OFF button, the
switch controlled light or device (the “load”) should turn on
or off. If so, proceed to Section 3.
If the timer display changes between ON and OFF but the
load does not operate, re-check your wiring and make sure
the load is functional.
If the timer display changes
between ON and OFF but the
load only operates when the
remote switch is in one of
its 2 positions, you need to
turn off the power at the service panel, change the jumper
wire to the other terminal. Then turn power back on at the
service panel and repeat. good luck
