The timer is wired incorrectly.

ON the GE timer and Utilitec timer: The red and black wires are reversed.

On the Intermatic ST01C

    I have done testing on the blinking-light problem with 3 timers.
    Intermatic ST01C and EJ500 will cause lights to blink if red wire is connected where blue wire should be connected.
    Utilitec 0192773 timer: I cannot get this timer to cause blinking lights. I have set up the wiring in all possible combinations. If your lights blink with the Utilitec, I believe the timer is bad, or possibly there is a short somewhere in the circuit.
    I will test the GE in-wall timer next few days and post the results here.

    I have confirmed that the lights will blink when your red wire and white wire are both connected to wire going to Load. Solution. Leave red wire connected where it is. Move white wire. White wire must connect to other white wires that are twisted together and covered with a wire nut. If your box does not have these other white wires, then connect timer-white wire to bare ground wire. So let's re-confirm our wiring: Timer-black goes to Hot from breaker box. Timer-red goes to Load (fan, lights, motor). Timer-white goes to other white neutral wires -or- timer-white connects to bare ground. Timer-green connects to bare ground.

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.

I do have and Intermatic ET724 timer and it has stopped working. I don't think it works with battery as it is attached to our bathroom light switch . any luck to fix it? or it is time for a new one??


That's a good old timer.
Grasslin ET724 in-wall timer is no longer available.
http://www.amazon.com/GRASSLIN-ET724-Grasslin-Et724-Electronic/dp/B000BHCFT6

There are several programmable timers on the market.
Intermatic EJ500 is simple to install and program. Works on battery but is for incandescent light only, not for fans.
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-EJ500C-Indoor-Digital-Switch/dp/B000E8VAIO

GE 15071 from Home Deport is inexpensive replacement and works with fans, lights.
Needs no battery. Uses electric circuit to operate clock.

I just installed a GE Smart Digital Timer. After I programmed the timer and went to manually turn on the light the light started to click on and off and the timer ticked?


Timer wiring instructions shown on following page:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15071

You connected the white wire and red wire together, and that is why lights are clicking on-off.
I test timers and have done this intentionally during testing.
Follow instructions shown on link above, and GE timer will work correctly.
Same wiring applies to Tork, Swilight, Utilitec, Woods, Leviton, Intermatic non-battery operated timers.
Instructions are different for Aube, Brinks, UPM and Intermatic battery operated

My GE Smart Digital timer won't shut off at the assigned time, but it will shut down manually.


I am guessing that you have digital in-wall timer GE 15071 or GE 15086

To identify timer for sure, see images at following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15071

Manual for 15086
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/GE-15086-Manual.pdf

If this is new timer, the problem could be a couple things.
1) Circuit has electrical problem that is affecting timer electronics.
Use circuit analyzer from Home Depot electric department and test any receptacle on same circuit breaker as timer.
2) event1 ON was programmed but event1 OFF was not programmed. To review events, press Prog button once to see event1 ON and press Prog button again to see event1 OFF. When review is complete, press clock key to return to current time.
3) event1 ON and event1 OFF are programmed with conflicting day schedules
4) event1 and event7 have conflicting schedules

If this is new or old timer:
5) Timer needs to be reset because of internal glitch. Press and hold reset button for a moment and timer display will start flashing 12:00 am MO
6) These timers can go bad any time. I test timers and 4-6% arrive defective, and most quit after couple years, but some can last quite a while. This is why I suggest using a circuit analyzer to check if circuit is causing difficulties.

Your timer is bad. It comes with 1 year limited warranty.
Buy one at Home Depot and then return defective one.
Make note of wiring before removing bad timer, so re-wire is easy.

GE 15086 is White 7-day digital, non-astronomic timer made by Tork, and sold on-line and at Home Depot.
On the shelf, 15086 timer looks identical to 15071 >> same package >>> difference is 15071 offers daylight savings time and random option, and costs a bit more.

These in-wall timers usually last a few years, and some can last for several years.
Especially when timer operates from electric circuit and not battery.
15086 operates from electric circuit.

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.

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.
