Question about Hardware & Accessories
You have to identify timer.
Say which buttons are on timer face and what wires the timer has.
What red light comes on?
Add a comment with specific information so I can identify the timer.
Intermatic, Brinks, Aube and UPM timers wire differently than other timers.
Swylightlight, Wattstopper, Leviton, Lutron, Woods, GE, Utilitec, Hagar, Sylvania, Westek, Intermatic (no battery) are generally wired in following manner:
1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire.
2) Switch has 2 wires. Take switch wires and connect to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire (sometimes this is blue wire). Choose either wire for now.
3) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white wire to these wires.
4) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground wire along with green wire.
5) Turn on electricity, and push ON-OFF button, or activation button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.
If timer is wired correctly, and timer does not work, then timer is defective.
