Generally your hook up is like this.
G - Ground - Green or bare wire
B - Hot - Black wire
W - Neutral - White wire
R - Switched - Hot when on
On your three wire
G - Ground - Green or bare wire
B - Hot - Black wire - hook to switch wire from switch
W - Neutral - White wire

I'm looking for help. Installing a Woods 59007 timer. It has 4 wires, red, black, green, white. My current electrical setup is a black, white, and ground wire in the box. How do I hook this up? T


Hook all the white wires together.
Hook all the greens or bare copper wires together.
Hook your hot black to the timer black.
Hook your black wire that goes to your light to the red switch wire.
then try the switch if the light doesn't work switch the red and black switch wires around black to light red to black power.

You posted under ST01C and are wiring timer to replace 3-way switch.
Open following link for specific illustrations:
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#ST01C
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/ST01C-explanation.rtf

1) The timer replaces one of the 3-way switches. The other 3-way switch remains, but must be rewired.
2) The timer must replace the 3-way switch that receives power from breaker box. It cannot replace the other 3-way switch. This is because the timer Black wire must always receive power.
3) The timer blue wire must connect to Load (light)
4) The ST01C red wire is only used when wiring for 3-way.
5) When the red wire and blue wire are connected together, they reverse the timer program. When timer red and blue are disconnected, the timer resumes programming. Connecting and disconnecting the red and blue wires is how the timer mimics 3-way operation.
6) The remaining 3-way switch must be wired so it will connect and disconnect the red and blue timer wires. So the remaining 3-way switch has to be rewired to meet specific timer wiring.

Sounds like this was probably a three-way switch you are replacing as there is no neutral (white) wire in the box. If so, you can splice the white wire to the green wire in other three-way switch box; then hook the green wire in the box you are placing the timer to the white wire of the Utilitech timer.

15265 In-Wall Digital Timer - I am replacing an Aube with this new timer. Timer is to operate a wall plug (outdoor soffit). Timer is inside. The old switch had 3 wires - only two were connected (I think...


GE -15265 manual
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/GE-15265-manual.pdf
Ah, the usual how to connect 4 wires to the old 'was-3-wire and now-2-wire' problem.

I tested and wired these timers.
Aube timer has internal rechargeable battery, and therefore does not need another wire to run internal clock.
GE timer has extra wire to run internal electronic clock, just like alarm clock is plugged in.

Heres what to do in simple format
1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire.
2) Old timer has 2 wires. Take both wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire. Choose either one for now.
3) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white to these wires. This action will complete circuit to internal clock.
4) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground. This works because bare ground and white neutral both connect to neutral busbar inside breaker box.
5) Turn on electricity, push in timer door for manual override. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.
If light does not come on, double check that outdoor bulb is good, and that breaker not tripped.
Timer can also be reset in event of short. Reversing red and black wires will not short timer.

Installing a 7 day digital wall timer


Swylite LST100 timer has 4 wires. Red, Blue, Black, White
Timer has more wires than wall switch because timer has electric clock inside. And with + series Swylite timer, it also has led bulb that needs power.

Timer can replace ordinary on-off switch
-On-off switch has 2 screws, so 2 wires (plus ground wire) connect to on-off switch
-Three of the four timer wires are used when replacing on-off switch
-Red wire is not used, it is capped off

Timer can replace 3-way switch
-Three way switch has 3 screws, so 3 wires (plus ground wire) connect to 3-way switch
-One of the screws on 3-way switch is colored dark (it is crucial to identify the wire that comes off dark screw so timer can be wired correctly)

Lets replace on-off switch see diagram
Timer black goes to Hot wire
Timer blue goes to Load (light, fan, motor)
Timer white goes to Neutral
Timer red is capped off.

How to check which wire is Hot, Neutral and Load
Switch you are replacing has 2 wires > one is Hot, the other goes to Load
Remove these two wires. Separate wires so you can test. Turn on power. Tape tester leads to wood sticks so hands are away from power. Test each wire to bare copper wire.
When tester lights up >> that is Hot wire >> please connect this wire to Timer black wire
The other wire goes to Load >> please connect this wire to Timer blue wire.
Now test for Neutral. Test Hot wire to other wires inside box. Neutral should be white. When tester lights up, that is Neutral. Please connect Timer white wire to neutral. IF YOU DO NOT have a neutral, you can connect Timer white to bare ground wire until you have time to drop a Neutral into the box.

Replace a 3-way switch see diagram
Three-way switch has 3 wires.
Identify which wire connects to Dark screw on switch >> and then please connect this wire to Timer Black wire.
Timer white wire connects to Neutral
Timer blue and red wires connect to other two wires that came off switch ... they connect to either one.

OK, your new switch will require the use of a neutral wire. So you will have to do what is called a pigtail. You will have to twist another white wire in with your other white wires to attach your neutrals to your switch. Note: white wires are called neutral not common. Hook the wires that were originally hooked up to your LINE to your HOT (Black) on your new timer, and the what was originally LOAD up to the new timer LOAD. SO as far as wiring all that will change is your white wires that need to attach to your timer NEUTRAL.

I have a GE in-wall digital timer that I want to use to replace a light switch The light swithc has 2 wires, the timer has 3 which does not make sense. What do I do


Now you need to know a few things before you trying this, #1 Where the Circuit breaker for the lighting you are working on is located. #2 which wire is your power/hot wire going in to your switch. #3 which wire is going directly to the light. #4 what a neutral/return wire is. #5 some general electronic terms.

If you do not understand or if you cannot understand the above paragraph Please seek the help of a qualified/licensed election.

Well the reason the wall timer has 4 wires, is that it IS NOT just a Switch. It is in fact an election device. It requires Power (your Black Wire), a Return (your White wire), and a Ground (your Green wire). It also has a Output (your Red wire), this output wire controls your light (turns it on or off).

IF you’re still with me?

#1 turn OFF the Circuit breaker for the lighting you are working

#2 Take a part the light switch box for the light you are working on (only disassemble as far as necessary)

#3 Take your Ground wire and hook it up to the ground within the same location.

#4 Take your Return wire and hook-it-up to the nearest return wire within the same location.
#5 Take the black wire on the wall timer and hook-it-up to the Hot/Power wire.
#6 Take your Output wire and hook-it-up to the wire going directly to the light.
#7 Inspect your work to make sure there are no shorts, no unconnected/terminated wires in your light switch box.
#8 Before placing everything back tougher turn ON the Circuit breaker for the lighting you are working then run a test.
#9 OFF the Circuit breaker, then inspect your work to make sure there are no shorts, no unconnected/terminated wires in your light switch box.

#10 If everything is working then place everything back tougher. Then turn ON the Circuit breaker.

#11 If you did not have your Circuit breaker pop/turn off the lighting you were working, your dun.

WIRING DIAGRAM TO REPLACE (4) 3 WAY SWITCHES IN EXISTING WIRING. (1) SWITCH HAS 4 TERMNALS.


Look carefully at the box you got the switch out of.

A 4 way circuit normally sits between two three way switches. The 4 way makes and breaks the wires that ONLY travel between the two 3 way while the third wire on the three way is "line" or "load"

Since you are replacing an existing set of switches, pay attention to the terminals of the devices you are removing. You will see that the screws on the terminals have distinctive colors. Hook them to the new switches the same way.

Again, look carefully at the diagram thaat is on or inside the box

I hope I have not confused you with this explaination.
