SOURCE: Trying to replace Intermatic with Utilitech inwall

The wires on your new switch are intended for black = power .. white = neutral . and red = lights .. with two black wires on the old switch I am assuming that there is a bundle of white wires in that wall box, the white timer needs to join that bundle ... then you need to determine which black wire is the power from the electrical panel ( voltage tester) and connect to the black timer wire .. the red timer wire connects to the other black wire in the wall..

Please Vote !!

SOURCE: installing a GE digital wall

Review:
Black goes to Hot wire from breaker box
Red wire goes to Load (light, fan, motor)
White wire goes to Neutral
Green to bare copper ground wire

Orientation:
Your original switch had 2 wires plus bare ground.
One of these wires is Hot, the other goes to Load.
You said original wires are Red and Black

How do you find Hot wire?
-Your original switch had 2 wires.
-Remove timer from box.
-Pull original 2 wires out where you can test them
-Turn on power
-Use regular tester
-Tape tester leads to wood sticks so your hands stay away from voltage
-Power is on
-Test each original wire to bare ground wire
-When tester lights up, that is Hot wire ... this wire connects to Black wire on timer
- The other wire goes to Load so it connects to Red wire on timer

How to test for Neutral wire
Test Hot wire to your white wires - No need to untwist them.
When tester lights up, that is Neutral
White wire from timer connects to Neutral.
Green goes to ground wire.

How to reset timer
I'm not sure which timer you have. Probably GE 15086. Reset is small round button below HOUR button. Use paper clip and push-in reset until timer flashes 12 o'clock.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Bought a Utilitech #0192773 to

Utilitec 0192773 replaces single-pole switch and will not work for 3-way applications.

Open following link for clear wiring and programming steps for Utilitec 0192773
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html

Utilitec can also be tricky to program if you are setting up astro dawn-dusk function.

For others finding this thread, same wiring applies to in-wall programmable timers by GE, Woods, Swilight, Sylvania, Tork, Hagar, UPM, Leviton, Grasslin, Wattstopper, Westek, and Intermatic analog timers. Intermatic battery-operated, Brinks and Aube timers are wired differently since they also work for 3-way applications.

I'm looking for a timer to replace the thermostats for 2 furnaces in a riding arena.


1) Yes a spring-wound timer will work.
Woods 59717, Intermatic FD60, etc
There are other models depending on length of time, and color of timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#countdown
http://waterheatertimer.org/Countdown-timer-horsepower-ratings.html

2) How to wire to 24 volts
24 volt circuit has 2 wires going to load.
Cut one of the wires and then connect cut wire to timer.

3) Buy Woods 59717 or Intermatic FD60 timers at Amazon.com in home improvement.
Both products have 1 year warranty, and both are strong companies.
Spring-wound timers last many years, and set-times are approximate.

Timer runs constantly. Runs cycle then shuts off and shortly later restaRTS.


Posted under GE 15069 countdown timer.
Unknown if this is new timer that is wired wrong or if load has interference, or existing timer that stopped working.

If new timer, then check wiring: This timer is for single-pole application only and requires neutral wire.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15067
Then check for line interference by moving timer to different Load, for example ordinary incandescent light bulb.
Make sure slide switch is set to Timer.
Slide switch works as ordinary on-off switch, so see if slide switch works correctly.

If timer stopped working:
Feel timer if it is warm to touch indicating overload or internal timer short.
Timer is rated for 1/2 HP at 120Volts. Check nameplate on motor for HP.
Check for short in line by temporarily replacing timer with on-off switch, and check wire nut connections.
Move timer to different Load, for example ordinary incandescent light bulb.

If timer has gone bad, then return it to Home Depot and swap for different timer.
If load interference is problem, then buy mechanical spring-type countdown timer like Intermatic FD60

How do you wire the intermatic fd60mwc timer 220v? there are no lugs for the second line and load on the right side of the unit.


You can turn off 240Volt circuit by turning off 'one leg.'
240Volt circuit has two hot wires that come from breaker box, so 240V has two legs:
These hot wires are usually labeled L1 L2 in wiring schematics.

FD60 timer is usually SPST and has two wiring terminals, but some versions are SPDT and have 4 wiring terminals.
Cut L1 line in half, and put each end into FD60 terminal.

Hi there, i have a timer that has three wires plus ground, but my fan switch in place just has two (hot) wires since i guess main power goes to fan first and my switch line is a just hot loop interruped by...


It looks like the timer needs a black hot wire + a white neutral wire to operate.
If there is no neutral wire in the timer box, I think the timer won't work, you need a different type of timer.

HOW DO I CONNECT TO POWER SUPPLY? WHERE DO THE WIRES GO?


You posted under Intermatic EI210 countdown timer.
To confirm this is your product, open link below:
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-EI210-Electronic-Countdown-Minutes/dp/B001EE1J74
Manual with operation instructions appear on link below
http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/files/intermatic/products/instructions/timers/ei220w%20-%20english.ashx

EI210 replaces single-pole switch only.
Single pole switch is where 1 switch controls the Load (light, fan, motor)

To wire this timer:
1) Single-pole switch has 2 insulated wires and 1 bare ground wire.
2) Connect insulated switch wires to timer red wire and timer black wire, in either order for now.
3) Connect timer green wire to bare ground wire.
4) In back of electric box are white wire that are twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer white wire to these wires. This will power electronics located inside the timer.
5) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer white wire to bare ground wire along with green wire.
6) Turn power ON. Press oval button. If indicator light turns ON, then timer is wired correctly. If indicator light does not come on, then reverse timer black wire and timer red wire.

Have only two wires how do i do?


You are apparently replacing a single switch, which only requires two wires (plus ground). The following directions are straight from the Intermatic directions that you can find at the link further below:
If a Single Switch Setup: Connect one of the two wires from the wall to the black wire from the switch timer, using the twist connectors provided. Connect the other wire from the wall to the blue wire from the switch timer, using the twist connectors provided. NOTE: The RED wire is not used in single-switch installations. Cap with a twist connector.
Connect the GREEN wire to the grounding screw in the box. If a plastic box, connect to ground as supplied. Make sure all twist connectors are tight

10 year old timer will not shut off any more


It's broken.
I have a FF series countdown timer on a water heater circuit that's been used for past 4 years.
The FF and FD series timers are heavy duty, spring-wound countdown timers.
I expect 10 years is a good lifespan.
You can buy a new spring-wound countdown timer at Home Depot or Lowes, but new ones are lighter weight than the good ol' Intermatic.

Grainger sells the FF60 (60 minute, metal cover)
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Spring-Wound-Timer-6X546?Pid=search
Grainger shows the FD60 (60 minute, plastic)
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Spring-Wound-Timer-1XC27?Pid=search

Grainger Intermatic timers shows a lot of FF and FD timer choices:
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/intermatic/ecatalog/N-1z0r56r
There are several pages of Intermatic timers:
FF5minute thru FF12hour
FD15minute thru FD60minute

Generally your hook up is like this.
G - Ground - Green or bare wire

On your three wire
G - Ground - Green or bare wire
B - Hot - Black wire - hook to switch wire from switch
