Hello. Since the two black wires were capped off, leave them that way. Now hook the red wire to the black in the light bar and the two whites to the white in the light bar.
That's it. Regards, Joe
ps kindly rate my answer. thank you.

I'm trying to install this Woods 59008 automatic fan timer in the bathroom. My old on/off switch only has three wires....and I that a light switch next to that. The woods 59008 has a red, black, white...


Sure George.

These in-wall timers have extra wire to operate the electronics located inside timer.
You said your old switch has 3 wires.
The new timer can only replace on-off switch that has 2 brass screws and a green screw.
If old switch has 2 brass screws and a dark screw, that is a 3-way switch.
Typically a 3-way switch is found at both ends of hallway.
The Woods 95008 countdown timer is not made to replace 3-way:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59000

Here's what to do:
1) Switch has 2 wires (plus bare ground wire). 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. This wire will power timer electronics.
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 push override button located below the OFF button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

There was two black wires on the old switch and no white hooked up . And i am trying to hook up a intermaticmodel ST01 self adjusting timer


http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#ST01C

The ST01C timer has a battery that runs the clock.
The wires are black, red, blue and green.

1) You are replacing a single-pole switch so the timer-red wire is capped off.
Timer-red is not used.

2) The green wire connects to bare ground wire.

3) There are two wires left.
Your switch has 2 black wires.
Timer-black wire connects to black-Hot-wire-from-breaker.
Timer-blue connects to black-wire-to-Load.

4) To start: Connect your timer-wires to either black wire.
Push the ON-OFF button located on timer.
If the lights turn ON, then your wires are correct.
If lights do no turn ON, then swap the two wire with each other.

If you have more problems, add a comment.
Tip: for easy programming, you can set all your programs before you connect wires.

Generally, 3 wires indicate a "3way" switch where you have 2 switches at opposite entrances to a room. Both the Red and Black Can be hot, depending on the other switches position. But, a red wire would normally only be found at the switch box not the light.

What I'd suggest, is that you get a multimeter, and use it to determine the hot wire and the ground/neutral. Once you know which wire is hot, connect the hot to the black lead, and ground/neutral to the white lead of the light. That is the only SAFE manner I can see to resolve this.

Hello,
Hook the black wire from one switch to the fan and the black wire from the other to the light. Then hook all of the white wires together.
This will get you working like you want it too.

I'm replacing a single pole light switch with a timer switch and the timer switch comes with a hot (Black) and a Load (Red) as well as the netural (White). My question is how to wire it up. Does the white...


It all depends on how the light on the pole is wired. The switch you have is meant to interrupt the power between the circuit breaker and the light, just like the switch does now. The new switch uses power to run itself, so you need an additional wire. Usually the lights on a pole have the power coming in on top, and a wire coming down for the switch - black and white. Lets say there was no switch - on top of the pole there would be a black wire going to the hot, or center contact on the pole light, and the white wire would go to the ground, or outside of the bulb. If (BIG IF) things are wired like they are supposed to be, there will be a black wire (hot) coming in from the breaker, down the pole, instead of going to the light. The switch you have in place now interrupts the power so you can turn it off/on. Then when you turn the switch on, power goes up the white wire to the hot, or bottom of the bulb. Theoretically, there should be another black wire going back up to power the light once it leaves the switch. People normally use regular wire, which has a black and a white inside a plastic casing. So, bottom line - you need to run a red wire from the light to the new switch, hook the white wire up to the ground. So: power coming in on top goes down pole to new switch to black. Red wire hooks up to pole light where it is now white, goes down pole to red on switch. Old white wire gets unhooked from light on top, and hooked to common (ground) on top.

The red and the black are the hot wires. One will be the fan and one is the light. The white is the 'common' for both fan and light.
It sounds like the new fixture has got one hot for both the light and fan, they will both run all the time from one switch. This is the blue wire. Hook it to the red or the black, which ever one comes from the switch you want to control it. Hook the white to the white on the new fixture.
The green is just a ground. hook it to the new fixture green or ground terminal. Cap or the black or the red that you don't use. It won't be need for the new one. The switch that it comes from will not control anything now.

Wiring Bathroom light/vent/heater switch with 3 separate controls


Wiring a bathroom combination vent, heater, light 3 way switch means more wires. In brief, you need to run two cables - one a two wire and one a three wire from the switch to the fan.

Incoming power will have white black and ground.

The two wire cable for the switch to the fan will have wht, blk, and ground.

The three wire will have red, blk, wht, and grnd.

The switch will likely have 2 blacks and a red coming from it, with two blacks and a red on one side, and a single black on the other.

The fan should have a red, blue, green, black, and white.

On the fan end: Group all green/copper grounds together and use a wire nut to fasten them together. Tape the nut to the wires.
There will be five white wires coming through. For ease of handling, using wire nuts, connect two on one nut and three on the other.
connect the blue to a blck. Connect one red to one black, and the other red to the other black.

The switch will have one red going into the 3 wire cable, a black going to the 3 wire cable, and a black form incoming power to the side opposite the 3 wires, and a blck going to the two wire cable.

There. Confused?

Admiral Clean-O-Matic oven: Power cord black red white ground?


Your terminal block has been by-passed .
Hook your black cord wire to the black screw on the terminal block.
Hook your white wire to the white screw on the terminal block. Hook the bare ground to the exterior ground screw.
The 2 wires that are wire-nutted together will have to hook to the red wire on the cord.(they originally went to the third connection on the terminal).
You will probably have to cut and strip the red cord wire and attach it with the 2 wire-nutted connections.

Casablanca Fan W21 Ceiling Fan


Hook the fan's wires up as follows: black = black (hot) white = white (neutral) green = green or bare copper wire (ground) red = not used, so cap off (hot) The red wire is for a light kit. You may have a second switch on the wall to control this. Usually, the ceiling fan will have a red with a green tracer wire that goes with the red wire. If not just cap the red wire off and don't use it.
