I'm trying to replace an intermatic EJ341 spring wound timer with a GE 15086 digital in wall timer. The intermatic timer has two black wires connected to my wall outlet (black to black). House is built in early 1990s. How do I do the connections?

EJ341 has 2 wires

    Note that the EJ341 and the newer, similar EJ351 are both electronic timers, not spring-wound. There's a spring in the EJ341 cover dial but it's not part of the timing mechanism. Both models have 2 black wires.

    I'd focus on the wires coming into the box that you'll be connecting to, not the ones coming out of the old timer.

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 15086 7-day programmable timer will not work for 3-way switching.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15086
It is possible to wire GE timer in place of a 3-way if you tape the other switch in one position.
Add a comment if you want help with that wiring.

There are several 7-day programmable timers that can be wired for 3-way. Each of these is wired slightly differently, and you have to look at wiring diagrams carefully. But they are completely do-able.

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.

For an intermatic EJ341 spring wound timer, there are two black wires that are connected to two black wires from the wall outlet. If looking at the back of the timer (not at the dial knob), which wire...


Switch has 2 wire > one of these wires is Hot and it connects to Timer black wire > the other wire goes to Load and connects to Timer red wire.

If you get these two wires reversed, timer will not run, so switch them. You know timer is running when dial on front of timer rotates with passing time. You can test for Hot wire by taking out switch, separate wires, turn on power, test each wire to bare ground, tester lights up with Hot wire.

Timer white wire goes Neutral. This wire is necessary to run clock inside timer. Locate Neutral wire inside box >> it is usually two or more white wires twisted together and pushed to back of box. If you do not have a Neutral wire, connect Timer white wire to bare ground wire ... until you can hire electrician to run additional wire to box.

I am replacing an old intermatic model EJ341 spring wound timer with a GE15086 digital in wall timer. The old intermatic timer has two black wires from each side (I dont know which one is hot). Each of the...


GE 15086 is a 7-day programmable timer. It has more wires than spring-wound timer because clock motor runs on 120V circuit, just like ordinary electric clock. The clock on spring wound timer operated by a spring.

If I understand correctly, the old timer has 2 wires. One of these wires is the Hot wire ... and that wire will connect to GE timer black wire.
The other wire from old timer goes to Load ... and that wire will go to GE timer red wire.

Instructions on a lot of these timers say, it timer doesn't work, then reverse the two wires described above ... this is because timer only works when Timer black connects to Hot.

You can also turn on power and test each wire that came off old switch to bare ground wire. When tester lights up, that is Hot wire.

GE timer Green wire connects to bare ground wire.

Moving on to GE timer white wire. This wire is necessary for the clock to run. This wire connects to Neutral wire which is usually white. You can test for Neutral by testing Hot wire to each white wire in box ... when tester comes on, that is Neutral.

If you do not have a white Neutral wire, then connect GE timer white wire to bare ground wire. This is not code, but it will work fine until you hire electrician to run Neutral into box.

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.

Can GE Digital Timer model 15086 be used for two way switch?


GE 15086 can replace single pole switch only.
If you have "3-way" switch, that is when 2 switches control same light, for example in a hallway.

Open link below to identify GE15086 timer, see wiring instructions, on-line manual <> and see list of timers that can be used for 3-way switching with links to those timers and manuals:
