When installing a digital timer switch into a 3-way lighting circuit, you typically have to install a jumper wire across the "travelers" on the 3-way switch at the other end of the circuit, in order to get the timer to function.

If you have an Intermatic brand timer, the jumper is included with the timer switch, usually it will be a small, about 2-3 inches long wire with fork terminals on each end.

You should have the power turned off before installing the jumper. Also, there is a distance limit (75-80 feet of wiring) as to how far apart the two (2) switches can be from one another, in order for the timer to work (with the installed jumper).

Normally, the travelers are one the same side of a 3-way switch, but you can use a voltage detector to confirm which wires are which (prior to turning off the power) to make installing the jumper easier. If you contact the manufacturer of your particular timer, they can email you a owners guide/installation pamphlet that shows the proper installation procedures for your timer switch.

If you have an Intermatic product, you can use the link below to contact them for the needed info.

I need to know how to wire a Levitron dimmer switch in replacement of a regular light switch.


Don't use on LED or CFL unless they are rated for dimmer switch. Didn't switch come with directions? Picture looks like it might be for a three way application.

Troubleshoot ge model 15086


GE 15086 will not work for 3-way.
There are several timers that do... keep in mind that 3-way timers replace 1 or the other switch, but not both... and the remianing switch must be rewired slightly depending on which 3-way switch is replaced. Sounds confusing, but copy following links for exact wiring diagrams for the GE 15312 timer, and Intermatic ST01c 3-way timers: Easiest to wire is ST01C since it is battery-powered.
Another thing to remember, is that when the remaining switch is flipped in a 3-way timer circuit, it just reverses the timer programming, so dawn-dusk would become dusk-dawn etc.
These timers offer astronomic dawn-dusk function or 7-day programming.

I have a newlec timer channel plusxl model nlh37 unable to programme it after it was switched off, all heating systems running at same time


1) Power surge such as turning power ON can put out timers.

2) Reset timer, and if functionality is not restored, then replace timer.

3) These timers usually have 1 year limited warranty.

4) Add comment and include photo of timer. And post your .pdf manual on your website, and include link to manual so timer and steps for reset can be ascertained.

I have a Intermatic ST01C installed with a 3-way connection. The other day it started "clicking" on-off..on-off..on-off etc. and would not stop till I operated the non-timer switch leg in my...


Wiring could be suspect.
I have tested this timer.

ST01C works like this in 3-way circuit.
Timer program turns lights on-off.
When blue wire and red wire are connected together, then timer reverses on-off program.

So the only function of second 3-way switch is to connect and disconnect blue and red wires on the timer.
The second 3-way switch is wired differently than ordinary 3-way.
See illustration below.
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#3way

Either the switch or timer have malfunctioned.
My bet is the timer.

1) Replace 3-way switch and see if problem clears up

2) Manual says: reset timer when encountering problems.
Hold down on-off button and push-and-release reset button.
Keep holding on-off until INIT displays.

3) You have to completely reprogram timer after reset.
Link above has ez steps.

In the Intermatic ST01C, what is the function of the red wire in a two-switch set-up, which [after the second switch] goes to the same place as the [timer-switched] blue wire?


ST01C is battery operated timer with red, blue, black & green wire.
Red wire is used when replacing 3-way switch (for ex: light switch at each end of hall)

Red wire is capped off when replacing single-pole switch.

If red and black wires are combined, lights will blink.

If red and blue wires are combined, timer reverses ON-OFF function (just like a 3-way switch reverses).

See wiring diagrams for ST01C

How can I program my Leviton timer model 6651-I?


Leviton 6651 Manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Leviton-6651-manual.pdf
Timer requires a battery which should be replaced each 12 to 18 months.
Timer replaces single-pole or 3-way switch, and does not need a separate neutral wire.
Timer is for incandescent lights only.
500 Watt capacity
Push the door for manual override to reverse program that is in effect.

The 14 hour timing period is represented by 24 dip switches.
Each dip switch is positioned for ON or OFF.

Click the dip switch right or left
Start at the bottom
For example: ON for 3 hours, OFF for 4 hours, ON again for 3 hours:
Click dip switches 1 thru 3 to ON position, 4 thru 7 to OFF position, 8 thru 10 to ON position
ON position is to the right.
OFF position is to the left.

At the end of the 14 hour program, the timer turns lights OFF until the original start time is reached after 24 hours.
Timer will operate like this while in AUTO mode, until function switch is moved from AUTO to MAN or OFF modes.
Function switch is located at very bottom of timer door.
To activate program (on first day), function switch is set to OFF position for 2 seconds, and then move function switch to AUTO mode, and programming cycle begins.

I am wiring a 7 day timer and I found that I have 3 way switches. How do I hook these up?


Open following link to identify timers that work with 3-way.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15071

If you have ST01C timer and are connecting to three-way, then open following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#ST01C

ALL timers that work with 3-way switching will replace 1 of the two 3-way switches.
The remaining 3-way switch wiring must be altered so the timer works.
The reason is this:
The 3-way timer has extra wire, and when electricity flows to that wire, it reverses program status of timer, so ON becomes OFF for example, or OFF becomes ON..
The remaining 3-way switch is wired so it will send power back to the extra timer wire that reverses the timer program.
So the remaining 3-way switch performs a different function when 3-way timer is installed.
