I replaced a Intermatic light timer with a GE 15086 timer. I have read several solution, but none fit my wire sceme. This is hooked up as a 3-way switch so the second switch can turn outside lights on...


1) GE 15086 is not a 3-way timer.
GE programmable timers are for single-pole switch replacement only. I have tested this timer, and own several GE timers, and many other brands.

2) Open following link to identify timers that work for 3-way switching.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15071

3) After buying correct timer, then you need to review wiring diagrams carefully because the timer replaces 1 of the 3-way switches, but other 3-way switch has to be wired exactly right to match your brand of timer.

4) Links on page above show manuals for each of the 3-way timers. Compare wiring for each timer with Intermatic wiring that you are replacing, because Intermatic is wired differently than Aube.

5) Or just buy another Intermatic ST01C or EJ500 or EI400, etc, and wiring with change out 1 for 1.

GE 7 day timer 15091 set day and time and set programs correctly. Timer works right for several days then timer resets itself and loses time and programs. This is the third GE timer that I have...


1) If you have chronic problems with electronic timers, then circuit is suspect. Buy cheap circuit analyzer and plug into same outlet. Try timer on different outlet on different circuit breaker. Change Load (lamp, fan) to see if same problem occurs with different load.

2) Maximum load for GE 15091 is 600 watts incandescent. There is no HP rating, so timer probably not made for motor loads since motors draw high initial amperage. For heavier duty timer, with 1250W incandescent and 1/3 HP, select Woods 59201.

3) I have tested GE timers. They are made well.
The 15091 is sold under different brand names, so it is successful design that's been around a while.

Just purchased the unit 2 weeks ago. Worked great. Last night I left it plugged into an outlet - but turned "off". This AM the unit comes on; timer showing default @ 5 minutes; however, no...


I wonder if you are talking about a coffee maker?
It ended up being listed under Vacuums!-
Sorry about that-- It sounds like you arehaving trouble getting the maker to boil water, and move it thru the maker, no?

Anyway-- I don't see why leaving it 'on' all night should have done anything wrong-
But maybe the Coffee maker guys know more about this repair than we do in Vacuums-
Sorry about that

I want my Outdoor 2-Outlet Timer set for a lighting display to come on in our office at 7:30am and cut off at 1:00am each day. Essentially the lighting display will be on throughout our business day but...


I don't know what type of timer this is but usually night hours are darker colored or am/pm is marked on the dial. If you can figure where midnight is, set the off time for one hour later and set the on time to 6-1/2 hours later, counting hours around the dial.
If you can give me more info, I can help more.

I am installing a ge #15070 basic timer and there are 3 wires. Which wire do I attach to the ground?


GE 15070 timer does not have ground wire.
I assume this timer is double insulated, just like some power tools and electronics only have two prong plug.
Leave bare ground wire attached to other bare grounds in the box, and shove grounds to back of box.
I have one of these timers installed.
Timer has red, black and white wires
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15070

How to wire GE 15070 timer:
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.
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 slide switch to ON-or-OFF. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

I have a First Alert model 610 timer. It is an older model and I need the instructions for it.


I called First Alert @ (800) 323-9005 and they faxed me the instructions for Model LS510 which is the same and got it working. They will mail it too but not email. Choose Fixed or Random mode. Choose how many hours it will stay on after dusk. Turn your lamp off and unplug the lamp. Plug lamp into timer. Put function in Fixed or Random position. Put hours on switch to number of hours you want it remain on after dusk. Plug timer into the wall outlet. Turn the lamp's switch on and Timer's LED light should be on and the lamp should be off. Turn the lamp's switch off then on again TWICE. The second time you turn the lamp's switch on the bulb in the lamp will flach on then off quickly. This indicates that the Timer is controlling the lamp's operation. Leave the lamp switch in the ON position. The timer is now set for automatic. I hope this helps.
