Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

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 manually. Here is what I have; Four timer wires: R B W G Wall outlet: B, B & R (Two), G, W bundle What ties in together to make it all work?

1 Answer

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.

Installed timer and I'm getting breaker pop. I've tried several different ways to wire and it keeps poping the breaker. GE Replacement Timer 15600


1) If you are replacing T103, the T103 can be wired many different ways. Not all wiring diagrams are supported by GE 15600 replacement timer that fits into Intermatic box.

2) Double check your T103 terminals
T103 terminals should be A 1 2 3 4
If terminals 3 and 4 have wires, then GE is not correct replacement.
You can buy repair parts for Intermatic timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T103

3) GE has terminals 1 and L which are connected by brass bridge. If brass bridge is removed, add a jumper wire and connect terminals 1 and L
GE has terminals 1-L X 2

4) Typical GE 15600 wiring shows on following link, in addition to links for parts and manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15306

White wires on terminal A connect to terminal X
Black wire on terminal 1 connects to terminal 1
Black wire on terminal 2 connects to terminal 2

GE 7 day timer 15091 set day and time and set programs correctly. Timer works right for several days then timer resets itself and loses time and programs. This is the third GE timer that I have...


1) If you have chronic problems with electronic timers, then circuit is suspect. Buy cheap circuit analyzer and plug into same outlet. Try timer on different outlet on different circuit breaker. Change Load (lamp, fan) to see if same problem occurs with different load.

2) Maximum load for GE 15091 is 600 watts incandescent. There is no HP rating, so timer probably not made for motor loads since motors draw high initial amperage. For heavier duty timer, with 1250W incandescent and 1/3 HP, select Woods 59201.
http://www.amazon.com/Woods-59201-Appliance-Grounded-3-Prong/dp/B001Q9EFTQ

3) I have tested GE timers. They are made well.
The 15091 is sold under different brand names, so it is successful design that's been around a while.

I am installing a ge #15070 basic timer and there are 3 wires. Which wire do I attach to the ground?


GE 15070 timer does not have ground wire.
I assume this timer is double insulated, just like some power tools and electronics only have two prong plug.
Leave bare ground wire attached to other bare grounds in the box, and shove grounds to back of box.
I have one of these timers installed.
Timer has red, black and white wires
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15070

How to wire GE 15070 timer:
1) Switch has 2 insulated wires. 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. Connect timer-white to these wires.
3) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground, along with timer-green wire.
4) Turn on electricity, and slide switch to ON-or-OFF. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

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.
Links below go to pages that show manuals and information.

GE 15086 7-day Digital Wall Switch Timer 15086 Having installed and set up timer, and put the switch from timer to off. Then, when I push the door to turn on the lamp, it does not work. Why? Thanks.


I think this is the dealy timer you have installed and if your relay is connected to the other side it becomes and switched on timer.
So I think if the timer controller is correct you must connect the lamp to the OFF relay and when the door is opened the lamp wil light up for the designated time set.
Is that so?

GE on/off timer for a bathroom fan - switch has four wires Green - ground White - neutral Black - power Blue - lead My fan has two - white neutral and black lead I have tried...


I would guess that the black wire on the timer is the power in and blue is the power out to the fan (hook it to the black wire going to the fan) The other colors are right.
