Question about Woods 59028 Programmable Timer Switch Light Almond
I’m having trouble with this timer.
I installed it last night but having wiring issues.
The wiring diagram shows connecting white and red from the timer to the neutral. Black to hot.
No ground in the box so not using it.
When I do this combination, the timer clicks and blinks the light continuously.
So I switched hot and neutral from the house side and same thing happens.
If I don’t use the red wire, the light does not work. I haven’t tried red and black connected only.
What am I doing incorrectly?
The usual connection for this type timer is the house black power to the timer black, the house white power to the timer white and the , the light black wire to the red timer wire.
If you only have two wires, one black and one white, at the switch location, then you cannot use this style timer , as it needs a neutral. You should return this timer and get one that does not require a neutral connection.
