Copy following link to identify timer and download manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/UPM-timers-and-manuals.html#ETW
ETW can be used to replace 3-way switch.
3-way switching has 2 switches. Timer can replace one switch or the other switch, but not both.
The remaining 3-way switch must be rewired as shown in manual. What the remaining 3-way switch does is reverse timer programming, so programmed ON times become OFF times, and OFF times become ON times.

Tip

Timer Switch Failures


Many toaster ovens use a timer switch to operate the ovens. Many of them use very poorly made Chinese timer switches that make a very poor electrical contact internally causing them to get very hot and in cases will melt connector insulation and also cause wall plugs to get very hot. One in particular is part # DKJ/1-60 which is used in Black and Decker and other manufacturers ovens. Replacement switches are about impossible to find and B&D will be of no help finding one. If your timer switch has only 2 contact tab's on it, you can use this tip to repair your oven. If it has more that 2 contacts, you will need to find a replacement switch or ask a qualified technician about other switches that can be used.
A safe and easy way to fix the appliance is to replace the bad timer switch with a single pole single throw toggle switch. Make sure to get one rated for 20 amp's at 120 volts AC. You will no longer have a timer and you will need to turn the oven on and off manually, but at least you will be able to use the oven and not have to worry about a faulty timer switch overheating! The timers are for convienience only and you have to turn the OVEN feature on and off manually anyway so all you're losing is the timer convienience for toast or whatever and the toggle switches are much safer too. The switches can be purchased at any electrical parts store or at many hardware stores for under $10. A cheap and safe solution to the problem!
If you feel the need for a timer and want to take your chances with a timer switch, there are a couple switches that you can use to replace the DKJ/1-60 switches. They are made for Delonghi toaster ovens and are readily available. One part # is 5218104600. This switch will work the same as the original but it only has about a 15 minute toast timer. Turn counterCW for OVEN ON like the original switch. You may need to use some mounting parts from the old switch depending on your particular oven. Another switch which has a 120 minute timer is part # 5218101800 but may be a little harder to find. Both of these look the same as the DKJ/1-60 and are about the same size with the bell on the back of the switch.

I have an Aube 3 way wall switch timer that has failed. I have another timer (utilitech in-wall timer) that has a black, red, white and ground wire. Not sure how to wire it.


Utilitec can only replace single-pole switch.
Open following link for typical Utilitec single-pole wiring:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-LW60419.html

Aube timer has internal battery that runs clock mechanism and does not require neutral wire.
The Aube battery lets timer replace single-pole or 3-way switch.
Utilitec timer does not have battery, so clock mechanism requires neutral wire, just like plugging in electric clock.
Without battery, timers like Utilitec can only replace single-pole switch.

Open following link to see list of timers that can be used for 3-way:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Aube-timers.html#3-way

When installing 3-way timer, the timer replaces one 3-way switch but other 3-way switch remains.
The remaining 3-way is rewired to accommodate the specific timer being used.
SOME brands of timer cannot replace either 3-way switch, but instead can only replace the 3-way that receives hot wire from breaker: Read manual before selecting timer.

Note: Battery-operated timers can be used for 3-way application, but cannot operate in cold environment.

Is the Woods 59028 Programmable Timer Switch Light Almond a 3 way switch?


Woods 59208 is single-pole timer.

Open following link to see list of timers used for 3-way application:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59028

When replacing 3-way switch, some timers can replace either switch. For example Aube and GE.
Other timers can only replace switch that receives power from breaker. For example Intermatic.

The timer replaces only 1 of the 3-way switches.
The other 3-way switch remains.
But in all cases, the remaining 3-way switch has to be rewired to accommodate the timer.
3-way timers cannot replace 3-way switch wire-for-wire.
3-way timers mimic 3-way operation. When 2 of the timer wires are connected, the timer reverses programming. When those two wires are disconnected, the timer programming resumes. So off becomes on, and on becomes off.
The remaining 3-way switch has to be rewired so that switch connects and disconnects the two timer wires that mimic 3-way operation.

I need help to install pool pump to mechanical intermatic timer switch GE to replace the digital control.


Question is not clear.
Add a comment with missing information for exact wiring diagrams.
Voltage is not known.
Timer model numbers are not known.
You have two timers.
You are replacing unknown electronic timer with unknown mechanical timer.
Intermatic timers and GE timers are different companies, and each makes many different timers
Each box timer has identification on inside of timer door.
Open following links to help identify timer and see wiring diagrams.

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.

6) Add a comment for more free help.
Also take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Utilitech 7 day timer, just wired it in and when I manually turn on the lights that they are hooked up to they flash repeatedly and timer makes clicking noise?


Try switching the red and black wires
I think your wiring is wrong
Did you replace a switch that has 3 screws, a 3-way switch?
Utilitec timer can only replace switch that has 2 screws, a single on-off switch.
For 3-way switch, you need Aube T1032 or T1034 (sunrise-sunset)

I just bought a couple of the Utilitec timers but haven't had chance to wire them up for testing
When I tested ST01C & EJ500 timers, discovered that wrong wiring causes lights to blink

If you need to see instructions larger:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html

Instruction sheet offers no troubleshooting steps
There is no website that claims Utilitec timers
These timers are made in China

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.

Timer not working


Hello there:



The timer push/pull switch : The timer push/pull switch is the main switch in the timer. If this switch fails, the complete timer has to be replace.
To check the this timer switch, you will need to set your multimeter to read ohms. Set the timer on the biginning of a cycle and pull the knob to turn the switch to the on position.
Open the controls panel, take a reading between the Black wire on the cord connecting block and the violet wire on the water level switch connecting block. The reading should be about 0 ohms, If the reading is infinity, the timer is bad and you will need to replace the timer.
If any of the above mention parts is not working properly, the washer will not work at all.
If this is found to be bad the timer will cost about 60 to 80 dollars ok
Hope this informatin has been very helpful for you
Best regards Michael
