Leviton 6651 Manual.
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.

There are a lot of problems that can affect timer operation.
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.
Manual says: DO NOT INSTALL TO CONTROL A RECEPTACLE, FLOURESCENT LIGHTING, A MOTOR, OR A TRANSFORMER OPERATED APPLIANCE.
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.
