SOURCE: I just hooked up my GE 15071 Smart Timer. When

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.

The timer is wired incorrectly.

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

On the Intermatic ST01C

Welcome to fixya!

The timer should be wired like this.

All white wires put together.

The red wire goes to the black wire to the light fixture.

The black wire to the black supply/power to the wall box.

The green wire gets screwed to the box if it is metal.

Or you can look at the picture below.

If you would like the manual please ask and I will supply one to you.

Good Luck

If more than 1 timer is doing same thing, then suspect could be circuit or interference from Load.
Try timer on different circuit, on different circuit breaker.
Use cheap circuit analyzer from home center to test nearby outlet.

Otherwise, if you are buying timer from Home Depot, then maybe that specific batch of timers is bad.
I have tested 15071, and it is solid 7-day single-pole programmable timer without astro dawn-to-dusk feature.

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.

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

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:

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
