The ST01C timer has a battery that runs the clock.
The wires are black, red, blue and green.

1) You are replacing a single-pole switch so the timer-red wire is capped off.
Timer-red is not used.

2) The green wire connects to bare ground wire.

3) There are two wires left.
Your switch has 2 black wires.
Timer-black wire connects to black-Hot-wire-from-breaker.
Timer-blue connects to black-wire-to-Load.

4) To start: Connect your timer-wires to either black wire.
Push the ON-OFF button located on timer.
If the lights turn ON, then your wires are correct.
If lights do no turn ON, then swap the two wire with each other.

If you have more problems, add a comment.
Tip: for easy programming, you can set all your programs before you connect wires.

When hitting the next/on/off button, it dims the lights vice turning them off???


The EJ500 is rated for incandescent (resistive) bulbs only, and not LED CFL etc.
Max distance between light and timer is 100 feet and wire cannot be underground.
Replace with ST01 timer, or Ei600 timer... these timers are rated for any load (resistive or inductive), and are programmable or dawn-dusk... 7 day... single-pole or 3-way

I'm looking for help. Installing a Woods 59007 timer. It has 4 wires, red, black, green, white. My current electrical setup is a black, white, and ground wire in the box. How do I hook this up? T


Hook all the white wires together.
Hook all the greens or bare copper wires together.
Hook your hot black to the timer black.
Hook your black wire that goes to your light to the red switch wire.
then try the switch if the light doesn't work switch the red and black switch wires around black to light red to black power.

Thank you for clear description of wiring, switches, and for including timer model number.

1) Open following link for ez programming and wiring for Utilitec.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html

2) Your single-pole switch has 2 wires.
0192773 replaces single-pole switch only.
Black wire that connects each of the switches is Hot wire: connect this wire to timer Black wire.
Other black wire that connects to switch goes to load: connect this wire to timer red wire.
Timer white wire connects to white wires that are covered with wire nut.
Timer green connects to bare ground wire.

The reason there is 2 black in the wall is because a standard line breaking switch was used. Meaning the hot side of the light was the black wire once broken light goes off. You would hook the black from switch to black in wall and white from switch to other black in wall green is ground and red put wire nut on. Red is for a 2 switch system. Where one of two switches in same room controls same light. Its not needed. Take caution when doing this trun light on goto breaker box and flip breakers till you find the right one that powers that light. once lights off then do your thing replacing.

Sounds like this was probably a three-way switch you are replacing as there is no neutral (white) wire in the box. If so, you can splice the white wire to the green wire in other three-way switch box; then hook the green wire in the box you are placing the timer to the white wire of the Utilitech timer.

GE -15265 manual
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/GE-15265-manual.pdf
Ah, the usual how to connect 4 wires to the old 'was-3-wire and now-2-wire' problem.

I tested and wired these timers.
Aube timer has internal rechargeable battery, and therefore does not need another wire to run internal clock.
GE timer has extra wire to run internal electronic clock, just like alarm clock is plugged in.

Heres what to do in simple format
1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire.
2) Old timer has 2 wires. Take both wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire. Choose either one for now.
3) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white to these wires. This action will complete circuit to internal clock.
4) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground. This works because bare ground and white neutral both connect to neutral busbar inside breaker box.
5) Turn on electricity, push in timer door for manual override. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.
If light does not come on, double check that outdoor bulb is good, and that breaker not tripped.
Timer can also be reset in event of short. Reversing red and black wires will not short timer.

I have an ST01 timer that I want to place in a three way circuit that appears to be different than that shown in the directions. My circuit has power (black/white/ground) coming into switch 1 with a three...


One caveat of most In-Wall electronic switches/timers is that the device _must_ be installed at the switch box that has the power, in your case switch #1. In order to install it at switch #2, in your case, you need an extra wire between the switches (to carry the HOT wire), and unfortunately, the bare ground(ing) wire is not permitted to be used to carry current per National Electric Code (NEC).

In your case the wiring for the ST01 is as follows:

Switch box #1: Connect the incoming White wire to the White wire in the 3-wire cable that goes to switch box #2. Connect the incoming (Black) HOT wire to the Black wire on the switch/timer. Connect the Red wire in the 3-wire cable to the Red wire on the switch/timer. Connect the Black wire in the 3-wire cable to the blue wire on the switch/timer. Connect the green wire on the switch/timer to the 2 bare ground(ing) wires. If you have a metal box this connection should also have a pigtail that connects to the box with a green ground screw.

Switch box #2: Remove all of the existing wires from the 3-way switch. The three-way switch will have 2 screws the same color (usually black) and 1 screw (usually brass). For this scenario, one of the black screws will _not_ be used.

Connect the Black wire in the 3-wire cable coming from switch #1, the Black wire going to the lights, and a short Black pigtail together under one wirenut. The pigtail is then connected to the brass screw on the 3-way switch. The Red wire in the 3-wire cable coming from switch #1 is connected to one of the 2 black screws on the 3-way switch (pick one).

In effect you are installing a single switch at switch box #2. In fact, you can use a regular single pole switch if you want too.

To finish, connect the White wire in the 3-wire cable coming from switch #1 to the White wire going to the lights.

Grounding is the same as switch #1 except you'll need a pigtail to connect to the green screw on the 3-way switch.

That's it. You may want to check the battery compartment in the switch/timer, as sometimes they put in a pullout plastic tab to keep it from being energized until needed.

Now, the E1210 is a different animal, and can only be used to replace a single pole switch. You could use it by basically passing the power through to switch box #2 from switch box #1 and then cover switch box #1 with a blank plate. The ST01 could be used that way too, in which case the black on the device connects to the hot, the blue to the lights, and the red on the device is not used, nor will the Red wire in the 3-wire cable between the switch boxes be used.

The wires on your new switch are intended for black = power .. white = neutral . and red = lights .. with two black wires on the old switch I am assuming that there is a bundle of white wires in that wall box, the white timer needs to join that bundle ... then you need to determine which black wire is the power from the electrical panel ( voltage tester) and connect to the black timer wire .. the red timer wire connects to the other black wire in the wall..
