    Place tape over photocell lens, and flash switch off-on. Did the light come on?If you know how - remove the photocell from the circuit and see if the light works. If the light works, then the photocell is probably bad. Check power from switch to photocell with test meter.

    How wiring intermatic timer t51211bc i have one circuit control by timer ....and one circuit contro by photocel indor lite and outdoor lite

    T51211BC is 120Volt timer that can be wired many different ways because there are two internal relays, and each relay has NO and NC terminals. One relay is controlled by timer dial trippers, and other relay controlled by dawn-dusk photo eye

    Timer wiring cannot be fully explained with words.
    Below is basic hook-up for your 120Volt wiring application, and then you can use a tester and experiment with the knob settings, and tripper settings.

    1) You have 4 cables:
    one cable from circuit breaker box;
    one cable going to photo control;
    one cable going to outdoor Load (lite);
    one cable going to indoor Load (lite).

    2) Cable from circuit breaker has 2 wires:
    Black Hot wire connects to terminal 1
    White Neutral connects to terminal 2
    This will power the clock motor and timer relays.

    3) Photocell has 3 wires:
    Black connects to terminal 1
    White to terminal 2
    Red to terminal 3.
    Photocell turns relay on-off for Circuit B
    Do not mix different size wires under same screw terminal, or smaller wire will come loose over time. Also do not mix stranded wire and solid copper under same screw terminal for same reason.

    4) Terminals 4 thru 12 are 'dry'.
    Dry terminals receive no power when power is applied to terminals 1 and 2.
    To put power on dry terminals, so that Load will have power, attach Black hot wire from breaker to terminals 9 and 12.
    So add a jumper wire from terminal 1 to terminal 9 and another jumper wire from terminal 9 to terminal 12.
    120Volt power is now connected to terminals 1, 9 and 12

    5) Circuit B is dawn to dusk for outdoor Load.
    Outdoor load cable has Black and White wire.
    Connect outdoor Black wire to either terminal 10 or 11.
    To test which is correct for your application, set switch to Auto, and then test across terminals 12 and 11, and across terminal 12 and 10. Repeat test after dark. Rotate knob B to each position and repeat test.
    Connect outdoor White wire to terminal 2, and this will complete the circuit.

    6) Circuit A is Dusk ON and timer OFF
    Indoor cable has Black and White wire.
    Connect indoor Black wire to either terminal 7 or 8.
    To test which is correct for application, set switch to Auto, and then test across terminals 9 and 8, and across terminal 9 and 7. Repeat test after dark. Rotate knob B and repeat test.
    Connect outdoor White wire to terminal 2, and this will complete the circuit.

    Friend left RCT100 timer programmed, it comes on the time programmed, but it goes off much earlier than it is supposed to. How can I correct this?

    Most digital timer problems can be solved by resetting timer.
    Open following link for possible instruction manual with troubleshoot steps

    Check the following:
    Program disable feature is not enabled.
    Check 2 different sets of batteries: 1 set AA for transmitter, and 1 set button-cell batteries on back of timer
    Choose between 4 different functions: programmable, photocell, countdown, or random
    Using programmable mode: make sure there are no programming conflicts

    I have a ge timer 15132 and it is wired up properly feed to screw 1 and 2 , jumper from hot to com, load to no contact and the neutral tied with the other from the feed, all the time are set proper and the...

    I have tested this timer.
    GE 15132 timer can be wired muliple ways to accommodate different voltages and many different timing needs.

    1) First thing is you must set dip switches BEFORE applying power.
    Timer arrives pre-set for 277Volts.
    For 120V, set all 4 dip switches to the left, or ON.

    2) Otherwise your wiring sounds correct.
    Hot black wire to far left 'clock' terminal.
    Neutral white wire to next 'clock' terminal.

    Jumper from Hot terminal to COM terminal.
    Black Load wire on NO terminal.
    White Load wire to same 'clock' terminal as Neutral

    3) Possible solution:
    Move wires to COM2 and NO2 and see if that relay is working.

    4) Make sure your programming does not have conflicts.
    See if manual override is working.
    Test for voltage across 'clock' terminals
    Move manual override and watch if relay clicks open-closed.
    Check that Load is operable by moving NO wire to COM terminal.

    5) If timer is not functioning, exchange at Home Depot.
    You can switch out mechanism without replacing box.
    Mechanism is held with hex screws.

    Wireing diagram do not no were thay go three wires

    K4221C photo cell page at Intermatic:

    Photocell has black, white and red wires on photocell.
    Black goes to Hot from breaker.
    White goes to Neutral from breaker box
    Red goes to Load (light)

    Electricians don't guess, they test.
    You should have one wire coming from breaker box, and another set of wires going to light.
    Separate wires for testing.
    Since you are outdoors, stand on dry boards and tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power.
    Turn power ON
    Test each wire to bare ground wire.
    Tester lights up on hot wire. This wire should be black.
    Hot wire connects to photocell black

    Hot is identified.
    Test Hot wire to all wires except bare ground.
    Tester lights up on neutral. This wire should be white.
    Neutral wire connects to photocell white

    Now the other cable goes to Load. This cable has a black and white wire.
    Connect photocell red to black Load wire
    Connect white Load wire to Neutral, along with photocell white.

    Ground wires are twisted together.

    Lights do not come on at all. Breaker is not tripped. How do I test photocell?

    to test the photocell you will need a tester, a basic pen tester will do fine, you just need to make sure that power is going where it needs to, when it needs to. first you will need to identify the feed with the tester, this is the wire that should have power to it as long as the breaker is on. once you know which is the feed, the other should be your switch leg. after you have identified the switch leg, cover the eye of the photocell, it may take a few minutes before the switch activates, I would wait up to 5 min. but no longer than that, if you are not getting power past the photocell at this point, then it is most likely bad.

    A t104 intermatic turns on and off sporadically

    Replace the trip levers, I dont think your timer turns off and on without trip levers? Unless your outdoor fixtures have photo cells on them or wired to them! Are they coming on at night and shutting off at Daylight, if so they are connected to a photocell or have internal photocells which means you don't need the timer unless you want to control different on off times.
