Hello Jim and welcome to fixya.

Whenever there are only 2 wires involved and dealing with "AC" voltages the polarity shouldn`t matter, as opposed to "DC" voltages when polarity does matter, but typically with those pumps the black is on the left, white on right.

That should be the answer to get you fixed up. Thanks for coming to "fixya". please take a moment to rate the information provided accordingly.

Good luck.

Ge timer 15350 110 4 wires 4 post have 2 white on post 1 1 bk on post 2 0 wires on post 3 1 bk on post 4 2 grounds to the box pump will work manually timer will not work

Unknown if this is new installation, or existing install that stopped working.
Copy following link for wiring diagram showing GE 15350 timer:

Look at terminal labels, should be L 1 X and 2
Power coming from breaker should be 120Volt Black Hot wire, and White neutral wire.
Cable going to Load should be Black and White.
White wires should be on terminal X
Black Hot should connect to terminals L and 1
Black to Load should connect to terminal 2

If your timer looks different, repost question with link to photo on flickr

If timer stopped working:
GE15350 timer is 120 volt timer made by Tork.
It uses P47 trippers, and Tork 101 clock motor.

I have TORK 1104 , I need control 2- louds (same face) I understood L- hot 1 from breaker, 1- hot 2 from breaker, X- com to loud 1, 2- is com to loud 2. BUD WHERE MUST BE CONNECTED NEUTRAL???

Tork 1104 is 240Volt timer.
Same timer is repackaged and sold as GE 15307
See wiring diagram for single load 240Volt:

On the 1104, there is not a separate terminal for Neutral wire.
240Volt circuit does not require neutral wire to complete circuit, so 240Volt timer does not have terminal for neutral.

If you want to control two 240volt loads, then this is not the best timer.
I recommend GE 15207 from Home Depot or Heavy-duty Intermatic GM40 available on-line.

If you want to control two 120Volt loads using Tork 1104, then connect 240Volt lines to to terminals L and 1 as shown in diagram above.
Bring your neutral wire into the box, but do not connect neutral to any terminal.
Each 120Volt load has black and white wires. The whites are for neutral so tie them into the neutral wire using wire nut. Connect black wires to terminals X and 2. If you want both 120Volt loads on same phase, then connect both black wires to terminal X.

I have a GE 15350 mechanical timer. I am not sure how to connect the wires. I have the power wires from the box and then from the box to an outlet.

You should have 2 sets of cables, each with a black, white, and bare wires.The incoming black hot wire connects to terminal #1. The bridge between terminal #1 and terminal L _must_ be left in place.

The outgoing black (load) wire going to the outlet connects to terminal #2.

BOTH white (neutral) wires are connected to the terminal X.

The two bare wires are twisted together along with a pigtail and capped with a red or yellow wire nut. The pigtail is connected to the green screw on the timer case.

Necessary for you to match up terminal numbering with actual numbers for each timer.
Information below is for 240volt timer controlling one single 240Volt load.
GE15601 has terminals L 1 X 2 from left to right
Intermatic T104 Has terminals A 1 2 3 4 from left to right

Here's the crossover from 240Volt T104 Intermatic to 240Volt GE 15601 for single-240Volt-load
Intermatic terminal 1 connects to GE terminal L
Intermatic terminal 2 connects to GE terminal 2
Intermatic terminal 3 connects to GE terminal 1
Intermatic terminal 4 connects to GE terminal X
Intermatic terminal A is not used in typical 2-wire 240volt circuit.

I have a new GE 15306 Mechanical Time Switch and need to wire it up to 2 white and 2 black wires that I had on my old timer. I need more information on the wiring than is on the diagram on cover of metal...

GE 15306 is a version of 120Volt Tork 1101 indoor-outdoor timer sold at Home Depot under GE name and number.

You have 2 cables.
One cable comes from Breaker box, and other cable goes to Load (light, fan, motor, pump).
Each cable has black and white wire.
1) Cable from breaker box: Black wire H Hot connects to to terminal L.
Notice there is a metal bridge that connects terminal L and terminal 1.
If metal bridge is missing, use a jumper wire and connect L and 1.
White N Neutral from breaker box connects to terminal X.
2) Cable going to Load:
Black connects to terminal 2
White connects to terminal X.
So both white wires are on terminal X.

I have a ge timer 15132 and it is wired up properly feed to screw 1 and 2 , jumper from hot to com, load to no contact and the neutral tied with the other from the feed, all the time are set proper and the...

I have tested this timer.
GE 15132 timer can be wired muliple ways to accommodate different voltages and many different timing needs.

1) First thing is you must set dip switches BEFORE applying power.
Timer arrives pre-set for 277Volts.
For 120V, set all 4 dip switches to the left, or ON.

2) Otherwise your wiring sounds correct.
Hot black wire to far left 'clock' terminal.
Neutral white wire to next 'clock' terminal.

Jumper from Hot terminal to COM terminal.
Black Load wire on NO terminal.
White Load wire to same 'clock' terminal as Neutral

3) Possible solution:
Move wires to COM2 and NO2 and see if that relay is working.

4) Make sure your programming does not have conflicts.
See if manual override is working.
Test for voltage across 'clock' terminals
Move manual override and watch if relay clicks open-closed.
Check that Load is operable by moving NO wire to COM terminal.

5) If timer is not functioning, exchange at Home Depot.
You can switch out mechanism without replacing box.
Mechanism is held with hex screws.

How to connect a lampost to a timer. GE Time Switches 15207

The following is for the GE 15207 to be operated at 120 volts ONLY(which is what you have):

Make sure the DIP switch is set to 120 volts (all switches in the ON position).

BOTH white wires are connected to the left most terminal. The incoming black (HOT or LINE) wire from the breaker or source is connected to the second terminal from the left.

Also under the second terminal from the left, connect a jumper (using the same gauge wire) over to the "COM" terminal.

Then connect the outgoing black wire (LOAD) to the lamppost to the "NO" terminal.

The two bare grounding wires are twisted together with the supplied wirenut. This is _very_ important for safety.

How to connect a lampost to a timer. GE Time Switches 15207

This timer has a lot of capability that you don't need, so you have to do a couple of things. I will assume that you are using this switch at 120V and simply want it to turn the light on and off. See page two of the drawing at this link: (this should be the same as the instruction sheet that came with your switch if you bought it new)
First, be sure to set the DIP switches according to the instructions for 120V (all 4 switches "ON").
For your wiring, refer to the first diagram on that page labeled "Timer and Load, Same Voltage, Wired as Single Throw". The two arrows on the left are the wires from your circuit breaker. The two arrows to the right are the wires going to the lamp post. The top one is black and the bottom is white. With that in mind, you will connect both white wires to the TIMER2 terminal. You will connect the black wire coming from the breaker to the TIMER1 terminal. You will also have to add a jumper wire from the TIMER1 terminal to the COM terminal. Your black wire going to the lamp post should be connected to the NO terminal (that means Normally Open, the other one is Normally Closed.)
This should get you there. Let me know if you have other questions. Be safe, good luck, and thanks for using FixYa. Please vote is this was helpful.

The instructions on most 3 in 1 capacitor are usally written on the side of the part with a diagram of the three terminals on the compressor. when there are two terminals on top and one on the bottom the wireing is red/black/white left to right black on the lower single terminal.
If one terminal on top and two on bottom, the wireing is white/black/red left to right. black on top terminal.
If wired wrong and corrected shortly there after everything should be ok once rewired correctly.
