My model number is on a sticker inside the door.
I have the 300 watt, and it matches the total wattage of my bulbs.
A lot of people ask for replacement Malibu tripper pins on Fixya, so your tripper pins might be worn down. I cannot find Malibu trippers, even on e-bay. And the new timer clocks are electronic.
Check your circuit breaker to see if unit is getting electricity, including GFCIs in bathroom.
Plug hair dryer in same plug as Malibu to see if there is power
Brush a wire across the screw terminals to see if there is any spark going to bulbs.
It's unlikely that all the bubs failed at once, but if power pack shows spark on the terminals, the bulbs should be getting electricity.
If a couple bulbs burned out, the power pack can burn out the others.
Unplug power pack until you get bulbs replaced.

Unfortunately if the power pack stops operating, it is broken.

I did find some tips to help folks preserve their power packs:
1) Match wattage of bulbs with wattage of power pack
-15 each X 20 watt bulbs = 300 watts, so install 300Watt power pack
2) Installing a 500W power pack on 300W of bulbs will burn out bulbs and power pack.
3) Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out or other bulbs will burn out and power pack will burn out.
4) When working on bulbs, unplug power pack or it may burn out.

When I press the timer to go on my three outdoor lights go on and off, timer clicks that way too


Timer is wired incorrectly.

1) If you have battery-operated Intermatic EJ500 or ST01C, with red, blue, black and green wires:
Then red wire is where blue wire should go. Swap blue and red wire.

2) If you have Aube battery-operated timer, add a comment and say if you are replacing single-pole or 3-way switch. And say where each wire is so far.

3) If you have GE Tork Intermatic UPM Woods Brinks Hagar Pass-n-Seymour Stanley Westek in-wall timer, with red, black, white and green wires, then you probably put red and white wires together.
Add a comment any time.

See instructions along with image at following link:

Heres how to wire timer

1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire.
2) Switch has 2 wires. Take switch 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.
4) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground, along with timer-green wire.
5) Turn on electricity, and push ON-OFF button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

Need connection diagram Thks


The following diagram is for timers with green, black, white, and red wires:
If your timer is different, add a comment with model number.

Manual says:
Timer-black-wire to Hot; Timer-red-wire to Load (lights)
Timer-white-wire to Neutral.
Here's what to do
1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire.
2) Switch has 2 wires. Take switch 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.
4) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground.
5) Turn on electricity, and push manual override button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

There was two black wires on the old switch and no white hooked up . And i am trying to hook up a intermaticmodel ST01 self adjusting timer


http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#ST01C

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.

I have an outside light that I want this timer to control. The switch box has a black and a white going out to the light and a black and white with the electricity. The instructions show to hook the red...


You posted under ST01C timer which has 3 wires: black blue and red (no white wire)
Your description seems to say your timer has 3 wires: black white and red

These are two different timers
I'm going to give you two different instructions that are dead-accurate for both types of timers above:

1) Instructions for ST01C and EJ500 Intermatic timers with black blue and red
Lets do the black and white with electricity:
The black Hot wire connects to Timer-black-wire
The white Neutral wire connects to white wire going to Load (to lights)

Now the black and white to the Load (lights)
The black to Load (to light) connects to Timer-blue-wire
The white wires are connected together with wire nut

The red wire is capped off, and used only if you have 3-way switching.
Green connects to bare ground

2) Instructions for all in-wall timers with black, red and white wires (except Aube series timers)
Lets do the black and white from electricity
The black Hot wire connects to Timer-black-wire
The white Neutral connects to Timer-white-wire and to white wire going to Load

Now the black and white to the Load
The black wire to Load connects to Timer-red-wire
all three white wires are connected and covered with wire nut
Green connects to bare ground

DO NOT CONNECT RED TO WHITE with any model in-wall timer and then turn on power or it can blow out the timer >>> I just did that while experimenting with the Utilitec 0192773.
Red wire goes to Load on all timers, except with Intermatic ST01C and EJ500

How to set the time and which is on out or in


pins IN = timer ON
pins OUT = timer OFF
Slide-switch must be pushed to right for timer to work
If dial is not rotating, wiring is incorrect (see below for wiring)

Grasslin and Paragon both offer multiple-gang timers.

Grasslin manual says:
" For example, to turn lights ON at 5:00pm and OFF at
11:00pm, leave inward the 18 trippers between 5 and
11 on the "pm" side of the dial.

Link to Grasslin manual

Wiring timer:
Timer black goes to Hot wire
Timer red (or blue) goes to Load
Timer white goes to Neutral (if no neutral, then connect to bare ground)
If timer dial does not rotate, black and red wires are reversed

Can't seem to figure it out. Directions are not specific enough. We set "the time now", but the white/AM, dark/PM is weird. Please help w/ directions. We need the light for chicken house. Light on 5:00 AM...


What kind of Woods timer do you have?

Is the dial turning? The dial is the clock. And the clock needs electricity to work, just like alarm clock. If dial is not turning, the wiring is not right.

Does the manual override turn on the lights? Maybe the slider switch set to OFF? Set slider to "Timer" for timer functions to work.

Wall timer:
If you have 59017 wall timer, it has dark PM white AM. You rotate dial until correct time lines up with little triangle located on right side of center knob.
7e3b45a.jpg

There are 48 plastic pins on dial ... when pins are moved out, the lights are off. For timer functions, set slide switch to 'Timer'
Correct wiring is needed for timer to work:
Timer black attaches to Hot wire from breaker box
Timer red attaches to wire going to Load (lights)
Timer white must attach to white Neutral (or if your box has no neutral, connect white to bare ground)
Timer green connects to bare ground

If wiring seems right but dial on front of timer is still not rotating, then reverse Timer red and Timer black and see if that sorts out problem.

If this is wrong Woods timer, please re-post question.

Woods In-wall Timer Heavy Duty, Model #59018 -- I just installed my timer and was able program and set the time, but when I push the manual override button to turn the light on, the light flashes and turns...


Quick answer:
1) Programming steps say 'press clock key to return to current time and day'
2) Use mode button and change between AUTO & RND >> try manual override in each mode
3) Does timer turn lights on-and-off with program, or do they blink too?
4) Swap Black and Red wires
5) Try timer on light in different room, on different circuit breaker
6) Timer might be defective

Longer answer:
Woods 59018 manual does not show troubleshooting steps except 'check wiring; switch Red and Black leads; and/or reset programming'

Seems unlikely you could program timer unless timer is wired correctly ... unless there is a short of some kind.

To review wiring.
Green goes to bare ground wire.
White goes to Neutral white wire (neutral is usually 2 or 3 white wires twisted together and shoved to back of box)
Black must connect to Hot from circuit breaker
Red must connect to Load (light, fan, motor etc)

How to test wiring
:
Disconnect timer and set aside.
Mark each wire
Separate wires in box so they don't touch
Use ordinary tester (you can tape tester leads to wood sticks)
Turn on power
You should have two black wires that were originally connected to switch
Test black wires to bare ground > when tester lights up, that is the Hot wire.
The other black wire goes to Load

Now you want to find the neutral.
Test the Hot black wire to white wires in box.
When tester lights up, that is neutral.

If everything checks out, I guess timer is defective.

Swapped mother board


Hi Paul,
see page 8 number 15 for location. Than see page 19, System Panel Header in your manual.
The basic wire color's for positive are red, blue, green & can also be light blue, light green, light red.
Negative wires are usually white or black. Case wire colors do vary from case to case.
To see pin one shown on page 19, (positive + for hard drive led = HDLED+). Bottom row farthest pin to the left of set. Pin two is above pin one. Pin two is, PLED+ (known as power led). Pin 3 is to the right of pin one & is HDLED- (Hard drive led, negative). Pin 4 is above pin 3 & is also PLED-, (Negative for power led). ECT!
6781222.jpg If your new case has an internal speaker (Used for P.O.S.T, power on self test). This would connect to, Chassis Speaker Header located on page 8, number 16. Again, normally only two wires are used across the 4-pin connector. (One at each end of the connector).

To see ASRock's main site for the 775VM800 motherboard click this link:

Good luck Paul!
Run into a snag, just post the issue here.
