Your ground will go straight through the clock box. So you will need to wire nut the green wires together that come in and out of the box.

How to ground a Tork EW103B time switch wired for 240Volt since there is no ground lug in the plastic housing or on the body of the timer itself


Many plastic timer enclosures do not have ground screw.
Simply join the ground wires inside wiring space using wire nut.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-Digital-timers-and-manuals.html#ew

Since the timer mechanism is plastic, it is non-conductive.
It's like using all-plastic electric drill. The drill does not have ground wire because the electrical components are housed completely in non-conductive plastic.

You can buy the Tork 9000A metal Nema3R enclosure if grounding is preferred. Or buy Intermatic 2T511GA metal Nema3R enclosure plus buy Tork IAP adapter to fit Intermatic enclosures.
Choose the metal enclosures when conduit needs to be supported and timer could be hit by some object.

The non-grounded box and non-grounded timer is also true of GE digital timers 15132 and 15136. Which coincidentally have same wiring as EW103 when using 240Volt.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-GE-15132-timer.html

However the Tork DTU40 timer has ground screw >>> but the timer is not grounded, so ground screw is merely for joining wires together.

I am adding a timer to my pool pump and cannot get it to run - help appreciated. I have a 240 box outside which the pump was directly hooked to without issue. I have now moved the pump and am putting...


I write complete answers, and know the GE timer line.
Open links to illustrate discussion.
Aug 2011, Jasco does not show a manual for 15351 timer.

They show 120V 15350, which is identical to 120V 15306.

That makes me believe that 240Volt GE15351 is identical to 240V GE15307.
BUT the 15351 might be a DPST with NO and NC terminals >>> add a comment if your instructions say anything about NO NC terminals.

If 15351 and 15307 are identical, then your wiring is 100% correct, assuming you connected hot leads to terminals L and 1.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/GE-15307-wiring-250.jpg
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15306

Checking details:
1) You checked that terminals L and 1 are not connected by a brass bridge.
The 120Volt timer comes with a brass bridge across L and 1
2) Timer mechanism is attached to enclosure with 2 screws. Remove timer mechanism from enclosure, and compare back of your timer with following image to confirm timer is DPST.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/IMG_9334-GE15307-500.jpg
3) Test 10-3 wire from breaker box. Test each wire to bare ground to confirm the hot wires. Then test each hot wire to other wire to confirm neutral wire. Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power and stand on dry boards.
4) Read nameplate on motor to make sure it is single-speed 240Volt.
5) IF motor is 2-speed, then look at wiring diagram and then add a comment with that information.
6) If pump motor trips breaker when connected directly, then pump might be shorted out. Double check wiring diagram on pump.

7) Take photos of problem. Post photos on flickr. Then add a comment with links to photos so I can see wiring diagrams, for possible help.

When checking outside light the timer is going to, the multimeter reads 120v but the lights will not turn on. There are also outside outlets on the same circuit and they are reading 105v but cannot run...


Turn off power between each action listed below.

Is dial rotating and keeping time on timer?
This will tell you if 120V is arriving and working at timer.
Cut ground wire and check circuit again.
This can narrow down ground fault problem.
Disconnect wires from timer and connect wires direct to outdoor lights.
This will tell you if timer is suspect.

List all things on same circuit breaker, and test each to find which are working.
Each electrical box is connected to next box and to next box back to circuit breaker.
Open each box and check for loose wires, signs of burning.
This will narrow down location of problem.

When working in main breaker box, the wires on main breaker have power at all times, even when main breaker is turned off. This is true unless meter is pulled. Always stand on dry boards and never lean into or touch anything else when working in main box. Do not hold screwdriver between teeth.
Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from voltage.
Test voltage at circuit breaker. Make sure neutral and ground are attached tight on busbar. Make sure black wire is attached tight to breaker. Move black wire to another same-size circuit breaker. Disconnect ground wire and test circuit again to check if ground fault is causing problem.

I have a malibu ML 88T low voltage transformer. It was working fine and I saw the manual on/off and turned it, (i should have left it alone). The lights did not come on, so I turned the manual on/off...


You can do it yourself.
Anybody that knows 'hardwired' and observed timer is making humming sound can wire up a timer.
If M88T timer dial is not rotating, but power pack is making humming sound, then that says timer is receiving power but clock motor has gone bad.
There are no replacement clock motors for power packs.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Malibu-power-pack-stopped-working.html

To wire a new timer:
Click circuit breakers until the humming sound turns off.
Turn breaker back on to confirm that humming sound is associated with that breaker.
Buy a tester at local hardware and ask them how to use it.
Tester will give you assurance that power is off when connecting new timer.

Outdoors: put down dry boards to stand on, never stand on bare soil or wet/damp surface, don't touch anything metal and don't hold metal screwdriver in mouth while working on electric circuit. Wear gloves if you want. And don't sweat.
With 120volt circuit, as long as you are not grounded, which means that you are not touching soil, or anything that grounds back to soil, then you will not get electrocuted. You can get shocked only if power is still turned on at circuit breaker, and it will be surprising, but it won't kill you as long as you're not grounded. All electricity goes back into the earth to complete circuit.

Open the box where timer is hardwired.
Use tester on black wire. To confirm power is off.
Typical 120volt circuit: Black wire is Hot and carries voltage. White wire is neutral and completes the circuit back to ground. Bare copper wire is ground and serves as redundant safety.

Old 88T timer will be wired black-to-black, white-to-white, and green-to-bare copper.
Take photo of wiring to avoid confusion. Post photo on flickr and add a comment with link to photo for another pair of eyes on situation.
Cut off end of new timer wire, strip insulation with knife and attach wires same way previous timer was connected.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-twist-electric-wire.html

To install ordinary 120Volt outlet so timer can plug in: Buy outlet from hardware: Black hot wire connects to brass-colored screw, white neutral wire connects to silver-colored screw, bare ground wire connects to green-colored screw.

I am installing a ge #15070 basic timer and there are 3 wires. Which wire do I attach to the ground?


GE 15070 timer does not have ground wire.
I assume this timer is double insulated, just like some power tools and electronics only have two prong plug.
Leave bare ground wire attached to other bare grounds in the box, and shove grounds to back of box.
I have one of these timers installed.
Timer has red, black and white wires
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15070

How to wire GE 15070 timer:
1) Switch has 2 insulated wires. Take switch wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire. Choose either one for now.
2) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white to these wires.
3) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground, along with timer-green wire.
4) Turn on electricity, and slide switch to ON-or-OFF. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

5) Add a comment for more free help.
6) Also take advantage of fixya phone service.

New intermatic T101 timer problem - timer is not


Manual override lever is good overall test of T101 120Volt timer.
T101 timer has 3 terminals: A 1 2

See wiring diagram on following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

Electricians test, they don't guess.
So test your wire:
Separate all wires for testing.
Use ordinary 2 prong tester.
Tape wood sticks to tester leads to keep hands away from power.
Stand on dry boards. Do not hold or touch anything metal.
Turn power ON.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Hot wire. 120V circuit has only 1 Hot wire. If you have 2 Hot wires, you might have 240Volt circuit and need T104 timer. If circuit has 1 Hot wire, then that Hot wire must connect to terminal 1.
If you have NO Hot wire, then check circuit breaker.
Hot wire is identified.
Now test Hot wire to all other wires, except bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Neutral wire. Neutral wire must connect to terminal A.
If you have NO Neutral wire, then additional wiring is needed, or circuit needs further testing to see what type of wiring you are working with.
Bare ground wires connect to green ground screw.

Notice there are small white wires also connected to terminals A and 1. These small white wires power the 120V clock motor. With Hot on terminal 1 and Neutral on terminal A, the clock motor will run, and yellow dial will rotate.

If timer dial does not rotate after connecting Hot ans Neutral, then test voltage across Hot and Neutral to make sure it reads 120V.

Your circuit should have 2 wires remaining.
These wires go to 120Volt load (fan, light, motor)
Connect these two wires to terminals A and 2.
Try manual override.
If Load turns ON-OFF, then timer is wired correctly.
If Load does NOT turn ON-OFF, then reverse Load wires on terminals A and 2.

Add a comment any time.

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.
