Don't quite understand the first post.
W is white or heat
Y yellow is cool (or B for blue) either will do
R is red or 24v
RC is the same as R, unless you have separate transformers for heat and cool, place a jumper from the 2 R's
Your old wires, though are 1 white and 1 black, usually this indicates line voltage. 120v or a milli-volt @.750v. Either case, you have the wrong type of thermostat for this application.

I'm looking for help. Installing a Woods 59007 timer. It has 4 wires, red, black, green, white. My current electrical setup is a black, white, and ground wire in the box. How do I hook this up? T


Hook all the white wires together.
Hook all the greens or bare copper wires together.
Hook your hot black to the timer black.
Hook your black wire that goes to your light to the red switch wire.
then try the switch if the light doesn't work switch the red and black switch wires around black to light red to black power.

I have a ground and white wires and a black wire... which do I hook to what... can I put green ground, and black with black, but can't i put my red and white on the white? For 7-Day Digital in-wall timer...


Utilitec 7-day timer will only replace single-pole switch.
Single pole switch has two brass screws and a ground screw.

Links below show wiring for both Utilitec 7-day timers
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0141224.html
If this is not your timer, then add a comment and specifically state which timer you have and which wires came off which screw on old switch.

The best way to start is to identify exactly which wires came off old switch.
How to wire
1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire.
2) Switch has 2 insulated 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, along with timer-green wire.
5) Turn on electricity, and push ON-OFF button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

I have a utilitech 7 day in wall digital timer and would like to install it but have no clue how to. can you get me started


You want to install Utilitec in-wall 7-day timer that has 4 wires: red, white, black and green.

You are replacing a single pole switch that controls a light or several lights.
There is not a second switch that controls same lights.

The switch has 3 wires.
Generally there are two insulated wires and a bare ground wire.
Add a comment any time.

Here's what to do:
I have tested these timers for wiring and programming.
Get started and instructions will make sense as you go.
Turn off circuit beaker to switch.
Remove old switch.

1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire using one of the yellow wire nuts included with timer. Put two wires together so they are even at ends. Put wire nut over wire ends. Rotate wire nut clockwise between fingers until very tight.

2) Switch has 2 insulated wires. Take switch wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire using two more yellow wire nuts. Choose either one for now. You may have to reverse these two wires in a minute.

3) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Remove the wire nut, but do not untwist the white wires. Connect timer-white to these wires. Then put original wire nut back over white wires.

4) If electric box does not have white wires described in step 3, then connect timer-white to bare ground, along with timer-green wire.

5) Turn on electricity, and push ON-OFF button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires from step 2.

Hello, I bought an in door smart digital timer (G.E.) or Jasco product for my front porch light. I hooked all the wires as instructed and programmed according to instructions. I have a two wire system, so i left the green wire unattached. The light comes on but flashes very fast. What's up with that? This is the second one i've replaced, the first one did the same thing!. Whats wrong?

I am trying to install a fahrenheat f2543 heater with a fta2a double pole thermostat. there is a 12/2 wire coming into where the heater is being installed. how do i connect the red and black to the white...


Hi, this is very easy for you to do.The 12/2 Romex wire coming in is the power which you know. What you do need to know, is the voltage coming in? Sometimes they will use 12/2 Romex with ground for 220, 240, operation. You need to know if the T-stat is Line voltage 220, or 240 volt. You have to have the same voltage for both for it to control. Reguardless of the voltage, lets say it is in the 220 and up range. You take one of the 12/2 wires, white or black and hook it to the black or red on the T-stat and the white to the other one, red or black. Thats it, you are done! If the T-stat is 2-pole I am sure it is a high, Line votage T-stat. Best of Luck,

I am trying to wire a hunter 44550 to furnace. Old programable not much help. Hi have 5 wires comming from wall. Black, red, yellow, white, blue, Furnace has W, RH, RC, G, Y/Y1, and O/B terminal Any idea...


Depending on where the wires were connected on the old thermostat, would be the best place to start, but if that is not an option you could try to trace the wires back to your furnace and see where they connect to. It appears you have either an oil fired furnace, or a single stage heat pump. If you need more assistance please just provide type of heat used. Hope this helps

Wireing code from goodman heat and air to a Hunter 44360 programa


To get your heat going take the red wire hook it up to R on t-stat. Take white wire and hook it to W on t-stat. Take the green wire and hook it to G on t-stat. that will get you heat. Now I need for you to go to the unit where the wires hook to the furnace circuit board. I need to know what color wires go to what on the board. Might have to take off bottom panel. should only be using 4 or 5 wires. Get back with me and will complete the wiring. Be sure no wires at the t-stat are touching each other as this will short out transformer. So tape them off or cut flush so wire and insulation are flush. ken
