Question about Intermatic Inc. ST01C Digital In-Wall Timer

1 Answer

I just hooked up my GE 15071 Smart Timer. When switched on, it continually turns on and off. I then have to switch it off. The box seems hot too. I wonder what could be going on.

What is the load on that circuit? It may be overloaded.Might be related to the switch having other items on the circuit. Try finding out what else is on this circuit. This switch is only rated at 15a general purpose,15a resistive, 15a tungsten Which is only 1,500 watts that would be 10-150 watt bulbs.

    I was WAY off! My electrician friend pretty much "rebuilt" the whole outlet box, reconnected the time and now all is well. Thanks.

I cannot program the "Off" time on my GE smart digital timer model 15071


Copy following link to identify timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15071

GE 15071/ manufactured Tork SS720
Reset timer, and try again.
Push and hold reset button with paper clip or toothpick for 3-5 seconds.
Buy new timer at Home Depot and return defect with new receipt.
Otherwise instruction manual is straightforward, and would not accept ON time unless wired correctly.

Intermatic/GE 15071 digital wall timer - Connection Problem


1) GE 15071 (Tork SS20) is single-pole timer, and cannot be wired as 3-way timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-timers.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15071

2) Check wire nuts are tight
Remove light bulb and spray WD40 into socket. Reinstall light bulb

3) Reset timer using paper clip or tooth pick, then reprogram to see if functionality is restored

4) Move timer to different location and see if it controls different light

5) Buy another 15071 from home depot.
Remove bad timer, take photo of wires, and install new timer same wire-for-wire.
Return bad timer to home depot in new package.
This is GE's extended warranty plan, but do not mention warranty at return desk.

5) Intermatic and GE are fierce rivals in the timer business.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html
Intermatic makes their own products. GE timers are generally made by Tork. Both companies sell timers worldwide.

Does timer 15071 automatically adjust for changing daylight length in addition to adjusting for daylight savings time?


GE 15071 sold at Home Depot and on-line has feature that adjusts for daylight savings time.
GE 15086 does not offer automatic adjustment for DST
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15071

Daylight savings time (DST) is not same as dawn-to-dusk astronomical timer.
GE 15071 and 15086 single-pole timers do not have dawn to dusk astronomical feature.

For single-pole dusk-dawn astronomical with DST, Lowes sells Utilitec-0192773
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html

For 3-way switching, 7-day DST -or- dawn-dusk astronomical:

May I hook up the GE Smart Digital Timer model 15071 in a three way system. I am replacing an Intermatic SS8C.


GE 15071 is single pole only.

Open following link to see GE 15071 timer, on-line manual, and steps for wiring:
Link also shows timers that work for 3-way switch and include links to those timers and manuals:

I have a GE smart timer 15086 I followed the instruction and the light blinks when you turn it on. Please help


I test timers, and no damage is done.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15086

Sounds like you wired red and white wires together, or installed timer in place of 3-way switch.
15086 will not replace a 3-way switch.
For example, when 2 switches control hallway light, that is 3-way.
Link above has list of timers that replace 3-way switch.

How to wire 15071, 15086, 15265, 15266 timers:
1) Switch has 2 insulated wires. Take switch wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire. Choose either one for now.
2) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white to these wires. This will power timer electronics.
3) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground, along with timer-green wire.
4) Turn on electricity, and push ON-OFF button located in each corner. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

I the manual wiring doesn't match what I have in the switch box. This switch is to operate 2 outside porch lights., previously wired to a single pole switch as follows.. one black wire to one screw and 2...


I test these timers.
GE 15071 timer has internal clock that runs on electricity. That's why timer has extra wire.
Intermatic, GE, Tork, Leviton, Sylvania, Woods, Utilitec etc in-wall timers each wire the same way.
The only tiny difference is GE doesn't have green ground wire.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html

Here's what to do:
1) Old switch has two screws (excluding green ground screw)
One screw on old switch has 2 black wires >> these are hot wires > timer black wire connects to these hot wires. This will power the timer.
2) The other switch wire connects to timer red wire. This will send timer signal to lights.

3) Timer white wire is for the timer clock.
Timer white wire connects to other white wires that are twisted together and covered with wire nut >>> these are neutral wires, and now timer clock will operate
4) For EZ connection to other white wires, strip back another inch on timer white wire so stranded wire can wrap like a candy cane around solid copper wires. Then twist wire nut on very tight.

5) When wiring is complete, push door on timer for manual override. Lights should turn ON-OFF. If lights do not turn on, reverse timer red and timer black wires. Make sure outdoor bulbs are working.

15071 GE SMART TIMER BLINKING WHEN TURNED ON


Sounds like you connected white wire incorrectly, or are trying to replace 3-way switch.
GE 15071 and 15086 are for single-pole switch replacement only, and will not work for 3-way.
Open following page for correct wiring of GE in-wall timers, and for list of timers used for 3-way.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15071

If you have different timer, add a comment with in-focus photo of your timer for correct identification and possible assistance.
