Question about GE Electrical Supplies
I installed a GE digital timer switch (model 15071) for my mom's porch light back in October last year. I had a little confusion with the wiring installation (it's a house from the 70's), but I got it to work with the old wiring.
Everything was working just fine till last week. The lights stopped coming on.
The circuit is okay (I think), as the other appliance on the same circuit is still functioning.
I had a look at it this morning, and it seems the digital switch box itself isn't getting the right power, as it shows nothing on the screen, but the backside of the box is warm. When I switched off the circuit, the digital screen showed some ''88:88'' and then went blank again.
Is this a problem with the actual switch or is it the wiring?
Thanks so much!

If you have power out in parts of your house, look for a breaker or breakers that is/are tripped or if you have a fuse box, look there for blown fuse.
If no breakers are tripped, there is the possibility that you have a GFI in the circuit. Look for the GFI (google GFI if you dont know what im talking about) and reset it.
If an amp probe is what I think it is, it measures the amount of current going through a particular wire at a particular moment. If your power is OFF, or if you are not using any power on a particular line, the reading will be zero. I think you might be wasting your time with this tool.
If I misunderstood your question, please ask me again so I can try to answer again.

it is an adjustable photosensor system. you will need to play with it to fine tune the settings, but you also need to keep in mind that photo sensor react to everything around them, shade can cause it to think the sun is going down, a cloudy day will cause it to stay on, or to come on. if you are looking for away to set it, to only come on when the sun is going to go down, and to turn off when the sun starts to rise, it might actually be easier for you, to get a time programmed timer for you lighting.
