It appears that you should have an ej353 instead of the ej351c. If the switch that you are removing has a red, white, black and copper wire on it, it sounds like you are replacing a 3 way switch. The model ej351c switch is made for a single pole switch and not a three way switch.

That is a three way timer. There is no wire that the white wire gets hooked to. The black is the hot, the blue sends power to the device, and the red goes to a switch that connects it to the blue wire essentially. Here is a PDF of the directions, including wiring diagrams.

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..

Hello, I bought an in door smart digital timer (G.E.) or Jasco product for my front porch light. I hooked all the wires as instructed and programmed according to instructions. I have a two wire system, so i left the green wire unattached. The light comes on but flashes very fast. What's up with that? This is the second one i've replaced, the first one did the same thing!. Whats wrong?

If your box contains 2 and only 2 wires, then the Utilitec timer will not work.
You need the Intermatic ST01C or EJ500 timers that operate with a battery.
I have tested the Intermatic and Utilitec timers:
Do not connect white and red wires together on any timer, but thank you for solving the problem why lights blink when connecting timers.
Now lets look at your wires.
Scrape paint off the wires so you can identify white and black.
According to your information, the black wire inside box will connect to timer-black wire.
The red wire always goes to Load (your light, fan, motor)
The white wire is necessary to complete a circuit so the clock inside timer will operate.
The timer has a clock just like your alarm clock, and it needs to connect back to neutral busbar in breaker box.
This is why the battery-operated timers will work with two wires, the clock runs on battery.
The Utilitec timer-white wire is the wire that goes to Neutral
The timer-white wire is supposed to connect to the other white wires that are twisted together and covered with a wire nut ... but some boxes do not have this neutral wire
To work-around, the timer-white wire can also connect to a bare ground wire.
The bare ground wire also connects to Neutral busbar in breaker box
If you do not have a neutral or ground wire as described above, then you need the battery-powered ST01C or EJ500 Intermatic timers.
See if you can pull some more of the wire into your box ... there might be a ground wire that was cut off and pulling more wire might reveal a ground wire. This will salvage the project.
Aplus is one of many places that sell the Intermatic timer
