My Intermatic T101 has power going to it and the clock works normally. But when the clock trips the switching lever to ON or I manually turn it to on, it does not put out power. Is there any sort of fuse...

There is no fuse inside the T101.
If timer clock motor is working correctly, then 120Volt circuit is fine up to the timer.
Unknown if this is new installation , or old installation that stopped working.
Wiring might be bad, such that line and load wires are reversed.
Or light bulb might be bad.

1) You performed correct troubleshoot steps down the line.
Last thing would be to install defect timer on another light circuit in house, and see if problem is the timer or wire going to coach lights.

2) EJ351C has 1 year limited warranty.
Buy new EJ351c and install single pole light switch until timer replacement is available.
Timer has easy 2-wire installation. Turn off power. Connect new timer just like old one was connected. Either timer black wire connects to either wire in switch box.

T104 timer would not shut off, thought it was timer so bought new timer and switched out the insides - keeping wiring the same. The timer will not turn on or off any ideas.

I had a problem like this before with a similar timer.

The wires used were large 6 gauge. They were so large that it put stress on the back plate of the timer and it wouldnt work at all. I adjusted the wires and then it worked just fine.

Its one idea.

Leviton 6651 Decora Programmable Electronic Timer. When turned on all lights flicker. checked all connections and all are fine. Also replaced with regular switch and lights work fine.

There are a lot of problems that can affect timer operation.
Call 1-800-824-3005

We can start guessing at causes, and then you try some things, and add a comment with what you've done so the possibilities are narrowed down.
This could be a wiring problem, timer problem, load capacity problems, circuit problem, possibly a noise interference problem.
I would check load requirements and wiring first.

1) Load:
Some recessed lighting can have transformers.

Try timer in another room on a different load.

2) For single-pole operation, the black and blue wires are used, and yellow wire is capped off.

Try reversing blue and black wires.
Make sure yellow wire is capped off.

3) For 3-way operation, the timer replace one of the 3-way switches.
The other 3-way switch remains in the circuit, but wiring has to be changed on the remaining 3-way.

Upvote the help.

I have a double switch box controlling inside lights and outside lights. I installed a GE Smart Digital Timer (model 15086) to control the outside lights. In the wall box, the white wires are tied together...

From the description you gave on your post , sounds like you hooked the timer up correctly . Again , from the panel the hot ( black ) is jointed with the blacks feeding the inside switch and the timer correct ? And the Neutral ( white ) is jointed feeding the inside lights and timer for outside correct ? And from the timer ( GE model 15086 ) the Red Wire ( Switch Leg from timer ) is connected to the Black ( Switch Leg ) feeding the outside lights correct ? If this is exactly how you've wired your timer , then you have done your homework . Now all you need to do is make sure you have programed your timer correctly , and with your instructions that came with the timer , this should be no problem . If you continue to experience trouble , my suggestion would be to return the timer . It's not unheard of for some of these timers to come from the factory defective . This wiring configuration should not affect your inside lights . I hope this helps your home wiring project . I'm an electrician if that's any consolation !

I'm trying to install this for our outdoor Christmas lights. The wall switch box has 1 black, 1 white, and 1 bare (ground). Where do I connect the red "timer" wire from the timer unit? When I...

Single pole application, red wire is capped off.

That being said, you still have to connect Blue and Black wires correctly.
Switch has two wires, if you do not know which wire is which, follow instructions below.
Connect Blue and Black to either wire.
Turn on power.
Push ON-OFF button.
If lights work, then timer is wired correctly.
If lights don't work, then reverse Blue and Black.

Be sure outdoor bulb is working.
I have a long story about that, and tested every wire and breaker ... and bulb was burned out.

I purchased the Legrand RT1 Time Switch to run a bathroom fan. It is installed and I see indicator lights. Every time I turn the fan on, it runs for a second and stops (hearing clicking in the switch);...

You connected red and white wires together.
No problem, nothing burned out, and it's simple to fix. Steps below.

RT1 is electronic countdown timer, and electronic timer clock inside needs separate circuit, just like your alarm clock needs to be plugged in. >> that's why timer has white wire. White wire completes circuit to timer clock.

Manual says:
Timer-black-wire to Hot; Timer-red-wire to Load (lights)
Timer-white-wire to Neutral.
Heres 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 countdown button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

New switch GE model 15265 ... to light up 2 lightbulbs outside. Old switch all cables are black. Those who light up the tester are the hot=Red/black?? Those which do not light up are white?? Green I know...

Manual for GE 15265
15A timer works fine on two bulbs, up to 1440 total watts.

If old switch has 2 screws plus green ground screw, then timer is right.
If old switch has 3 screws plus green ground screw, 15265 doesn't replace 3-way switch.

Timer-green wire connects to bare ground wire

Old switch has 2 screws with wires on each.
One wire is Hot-from breaker and this connects to timer-black wire.
One wire Goes-to-lights and this connects to timer-red wire.
If you get these two wires reversed, timer will not work, so reverse them.
It will not blow circuit if the timer-red and timer-black wires are reversed.

Timer-White wire is the confusing wire for everybody:
Timer-white wire runs clock motor located inside timer.
In back of electric box are neutral white wires that are twisted together and covered with wire nut.
Connect timer-white to these neutral wires.
If box does not have neutral white wires, connect timer-white to bare ground wire.

My GE 7-Day Digital Timer model 15086 flashes on

I just bought one today and installed it. It does the same thing - flashes the lights off and on. After some research on the net, it seems that the problem is that an old house is wired with two pole wiring and the new fixtures, (timers included) are 3 pole. The conclusion I have found is that it will not work in a 2 pole wired house. There supposedlly are timers available for 2 pole wiring. I hope this helps. If you find out anything different, please let me know.
