I have wired correctly. When I press on and off the device works correctly but will not program. I have details of what I have tried. I have read through all of the posts on this site. I know about the sun, mon, tues, settings at the top and the DST and the short time frame between each time setting. My question is posted here. Please help

I wrote a page and tested Utilitec timers
Wiring and programming is shown on page:

Here's how to tell where problem is:
Press ON-OFF button to see if timer turns on lights
If manual override does NOT work, then wiring is wrong.
If manual override works, and lights turn ON-OFF, then programming is wrong.

Press ON-OFF and then add a comment for more help.

Just Larry again. I appreciate the help from Phil, but my Timer still does not function. I went thru the complete programming, to have it turn lights on at sunset, off at sunrise, 7 days a week. And, no...

What timer do you have?
You have a Lowes dawn-dusk timer, probably installed inside a wall box.
My local Lowes does not carry a 3-way timer, so you probably have a single-pole timer: Utilitec 0192773 unless the model numbers have changed.
Copy following links to help identify timer and see wiring for single pole wall timers.

Is the timer white wire connected to white neutral wires, or to the bare ground wire?
Have you checked the light bulb?
Is the timer rated for the type bulb you are controlling? The Lowes timer does not appear to rated for LED, and I cannot tell if it works for CFL.
Click circuit breaker all the way off and then back on.
If the manual override on-off button does not turn lights on-off, then I suspect there is simple electrical problem or timer is defect.

Add a comment with more specific detail which troubleshoot steps you have taken and if you have checked each of the things mentioned above.

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.

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.

3) How to connect stranded wire and solid wire

Utilitec 0192773 replaces single-pole switch and will not work for 3-way applications.

Open following link for clear wiring and programming steps for Utilitec 0192773

Utilitec can also be tricky to program if you are setting up astro dawn-dusk function.

For others finding this thread, same wiring applies to in-wall programmable timers by GE, Woods, Swilight, Sylvania, Tork, Hagar, UPM, Leviton, Grasslin, Wattstopper, Westek, and Intermatic analog timers. Intermatic battery-operated, Brinks and Aube timers are wired differently since they also work for 3-way applications.

I, too, only have 2 wires in my switch. It is not clear what to do with the 4 wires on the utilitech 0192773. Did not see the answer to the same question.

I wrote a page on the Utilitec 0192773
It shows how to wire the timer and shows the manual larger.

Timer-green wire connects to bare ground wire.
Here's what to do Switch has 2 wires.
1) Take switch wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire. Choose either one for now.
2) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. These are the neutral wires. Connect timer-white to these wires.
3) If electric box does not have white neutral wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground.
4) 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.

Utilitech Wall Timer #0192773 does not switch landscape lights on? Replaced Intermatic that had 3 wires. Black to Black, blue to black and red was capped. Utilitech came with 4 wires - black, white,...

Old timer: Intermatic EJ500 & ST01C timers have a battery. Battery operates the clock motor. Red wire is for 3-way circuit [a hallway with 2 switches is a 3-way circuit].

Utilitec timer, clock runs on 120Volt circuit instead of battery. So clock has to have power.

How to connect wires:
Black timer wire connects to hot wire from breaker box.
Red (or blue) timer wire goes to landscape lights.
White timer wire connects to white neutral wire [or if no neutral is available, connect to bare ground wire].
Green timer wire goes to bare ground wire.

How to find black hot wire and white neutral wire inside box
: Disconnect and separate wires so you can test. Use ordinary tester. Power is on. There is only 1 black hot wire inside each electrical box. Test each black wire to bare ground until tester light comes on > that identifies the black hot wire. Next, test black hot wire to white wires until tester light comes on > that is the neutral wire. Exception: This test does not necessarily work with 3-way switches since they reverse each time switch is thrown.

Once in wall and operating lights blink and there is clicking noise at the switch

You have timer wired wrong.
If you have ST01C timer, then red wire is connected where blue wire should be.

If you have another brand of timer, then white wire is connected to red wire.
White wire must be connected to Neutral or to bare ground.

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