You will have to have schematics from the old wiring diagram. Then you will have to confirm its consistency with actual old wiring before you can be sure that the wires run to the proper places on the old heater and a/c system. This sounds like a gas furnace and is simpler than a heatpump. Once you know what distinguishes the wires with the same color, you should label them and then you may call them a different color if they were wired with wrong wire colors. You may be in luck if you go to the furnace control box an look at the terminals.. They are usually labeled with a R for Red and W for white and Bl for Blue and B or Black. If you have other colors on these then it sounds that it was wired with wire spare wire by someone who knew what they were doing but neglected to leave a path for someone else follow.
You may be able to use a continuity tester of circuit tester to id these wires that are in question...
ie, once indintified, you can match with the requirements of the new stat.

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

Fantech FD60EM electronic timer control makes a loud buzzing sound and does not operate the fan


This timer appears to be Leviton LTB60
http://waterheatertimer.org/Countdown-timer-horsepower-ratings.html

Timer has 1 year limited warranty, evidently from manufacturer.
If timer is making humming sound, then it is defective, possibly receiving undervoltage on the line, or wiring installed incorrectly.

Switch noisy timer with one of the other timers, and see if problem follows the timer, or is related to the specific location.
Otherwise replace with LTB60 from Amazon for $24.
Or buy Intermatic Ei200 timer, or replace non-electronic with spring-wound timer such as 60-minute Intermatic FD60, or 30-minute FD30, etc.

I have a Woods Decora time we use on our bathroom vent fan. It is preset for 5-10-15-30 minutes. It now runs for 5-10-15-30 SECONDS! How can I fix it?


There are no repairs for electronic wall timers.
Timers have 1 year warranty against defects in workmanship. This sounds like the case here.

Try timer on different circuit and see if same malfunction appears.

Woods is rated for 1/4 HP and will handle bath fan, so load does not sound like a problem.
Timer worked before, so wiring is correct.
Power outages can knock out timers when the power turns on again and timer is exposed to surge.

View countdown timers:
Electronic Leviton 6200 series and Leviton LTB series are more robust than Woods.
Mechanical rotary-type timers have no electronics, and last many years without problems.
Buy locally: GE countdown timers are sold at Home Depot. Advantage of store-bought timer is hassle-free warranty: buy new timer and return defect timer in new package.

Hi, I am trying to install a Leviton time switch. in the wall box I have a single black, a single white and a copper wire. Here's how I plan to wire it up: wall switch black (hot) ...


The white wire is used to power electronics inside timer:

Single pole switch has two insulated wires.
Remove both insulated wires from switch.

Timer black connects to one of the insulated switch wires, or to Hot wire from breaker
Timer red connects to the other insulated switch wire, or to Load wire going to fan, light, motor.
Timer white connects to Neutral wire from breaker box. Neutrals are white wires that are twisted together and pushed to back of box.
If box does not have Neutral wires, then connect timer white wire to bare ground wire.
Timer green connects to bare ground.

Turn power on, and check if timer is working. If timer is not working, then reverse timer black and timer red wires.
This wiring information has been tested and is accurate.
If timer does not function correctly with correct wiring, then move timer to another location to see if timer is defective, if timer does not work on specific Load, then noise or interference on line can be suspect. Also check ratings for timer and compare with Load ratings.

If you have countdown timer connected to whole house motor/fan, then horsepower rating is important consideration. If timer is rated 1/6 HP and whole house fan is 1/2 HP, then timer will not work.

Countdown timers are made to work with bath fans.
Leviton countdown timers are stout product with 1HP rating.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Countdown-timer-horsepower-ratings.html#6200

It sounds like timer is bad.
Wiring sounds good. Make sure you don't have Load and Line wires reversed. Try reversing Load-Line wires and see what happens.
Another thing that affects electronic timers is line noise/interference. If replacement timer does same thing, then noise is suspect. Try timer on another circuit without fan. Try another brand timer. Update to newer LTB60 Leviton timer. Use cheap circuit tester from home center to check outlet on same circuit.

Despite the fans working on a plain Jane single pole switches, I can't get these 6515M switches to work for my 1.3 ceiling fans. The fan hums and all I get on the timers are red LEDs. These timers...


1) Leviton 6515 is incandescent only:
http://www.amazon.com/Leviton-6515M-I-2-5-10-15-Electronic-Incandescent/dp/B0007NOZDI

2) Below is list of countdown timers with horsepower rating so they work for fans:

GE15088 countdown timer is rated 3/4 hp
http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay

Intermatic spring wound countdown timers are rated for 2 horsepower
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/in-wall%20timers/decorator%20spring%20wound%20timers.aspx

Woods spring-wound countdown timer says bath/ ceiling fans, but doesn't give horsepower
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Wood-59700-series--spring-wound.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#countdown

Woods push-button countdown is 1/4 horsepower
http://www.amazon.com/Woods-59014-Decora-12-8-4-2-12-Hour/dp/B002C54GH4

Wattstopper RT50 at Grainger shows 1/6 horsepower rating
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/WATT-STOPPER-Time-Switch-2HTE1?Pid=search


3) Following timers are NOT rated for fans:

Lutron MA-T51 countdown timer specifically says it cannot be used for motors.
http://www.amazon.com/Lutron-MA-T51-WH-Maestro-Countdown-Timer/dp/B001EFV1DA
http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/0301041A.pdf

Pass and Seymour RT1 countdown does not show rating for horsepower, so this timer will probably not work for fan motor

Leviton countdown timers have additional wire that powers internal electronics.
Leviton timers have red-black-white-green wires (or blue-black-white-green wires)

1) Regular single pole switch has 2 insulated wires. One of these wires is Hot from breaker, and the other goes to Load (fan)
2) Timer green wire connects to bare ground as you know.
3) Hot from breaker connects to timer black wire.
4) Load wire connects to timer red (or blue) wire.

5) Located in back of box are white wires that are twisted together and covered with wire nut.
These are Neutral wires. Connect timer white to these wires. This will power timer electronics.
6) If box does not have Neutral wires described above, then connect timer white to bare ground along with timer green wire.

7) Turn power ON and try timer countdown.
If timer does not work, then reverse timer red and timer black wire.

8) If box does not have neutral wires: Image on link below shows similar Intermatic timer:
Image applies ONLY when Neutral is not available.

I have the unit wired and it does not wotk.I have black to black,red to red green to ground and white to white,any thoughts? Thank you


Electrician test wiring before connecting anything.
First of all, you don't mention what type of switch was replaced.

1) Leviton 6230 countdown timer is made to replace single-pole light switch only.
Single pole is where 1 switch controls the Load (light fan motor)

Your wiring sounds like 3-way switch.
3-way is where 2 switches control same Load.
For example a hallway usually has 3-way switches.

To confirm. If old switch has 1 dark screw, 2 brass screws, and 1 green screw, then that is 3-way switch. Use Leviton LTB15, LTB30, LTB60, LTB02, LTB12 countdown timer for 3-way.

http://www.smarthome.com/4255/Leviton-LTB60-1LZ-4-Button-10-20-30-60-Minute-Countdown-Timer-Switch/p.aspx


2) If old switch has 2 brass screws and 1 green screw then that is single-pole switch.

3) If you are replacing single-pole switch, here are testing & wiring instructions for Leviton timer.
Remove device and separate wires for testing.
Use ordinary two wire tester.
Tape tester leads to wood sticks so hands are away from power.
Do not untwist wires that were twisted together before you started.
Turn on power.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Hot wire. This wire will connect to timer black wire.
Now you know Hot wire.
Test Hot wire to each of the other wires, excluding bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on neutral. Timer white wire connects to Neutral wire.
If box does not contain Neutral wire, then timer white wire connects to bare ground.

Timer green wire connects to bare ground wire.
Timer red wire connects to wire going to Load.

Regular 3 way switch does not seem compatible with the Dimmer


you have the circuit mis-wired, the wire on the identified terminal( black screw or black wire on dimmer switch) is incorrect. Turn off power and swap one wire at a time to find the correct combination. The mistake could be at either switch so if the first does not help try the other.
