1 Answer

1) Utilitec timers cannot be used for multiple switch replacement.
They replace only single-pole switch.

2) Open following link to see specific timers that can be used for 3-way.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15071

3) In your case you have 3 different switches that control outside lights: so you have two 3-way switches and one 4-way switch.
Open following link to see typical 4-way wiring.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Typical-3-Way-switches-450.jpg

4) 3-way timer will replace one of the 3-way, but not the 4-way.
The timer can be used in place of the 4-way switch.
Identify 4-way because it has 4 screws and 4 wires (excluding ground wire)

5) Keep in mind that 3-way timers replace one of the 3-way switches.
But wiring has to be changed at the remaining 3-way switch.
Open following link to read why wiring is changed at remaining 3-way:
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#3way
Wiring at the 4-way switch is left the same.
When you buy the timer, read manual carefully for correct wiring, or add a comment to this thread, and I will help more.

    Misspell: Timer can NOT be used to replace 4-way switch. There is no residential in-wall timer made to replace 4-way switch.

I have installed the Utilitech timer switch # 0141224 with all of the wires connected as they are explained in the installation packet. The timer works and turns on the lights, however it only turns on 4...


Utilitec is single-pole timer.
Wiring sounds correct. Lights will blink if timer white white is connected with timer red wire. Lights will not turn ON if timer red and timer black are reversed. Green to ground is not necessary for timer operation.
Check light bulbs are operational.

Bundle of white wires are neutral wires.
Timer white wire requires neutral connection to complete circuit to timer electronics.

If bulbs are good, it is likely that loose white wire is problem, since each of the outdoor lights also needs neutral wire to complete circuit.
Having 6 white wires connected together, plus stranded wire from timer, takes a large wire nut, and that many wires can have a wire fall loose without notice. You can solder wires together, or break the group apart under different wire nuts with a jumper wire between.

I have installed a Utilitech timer switch #0141224 on one of three switches. The switches are all in a row but I only want the last (rightmost) switch changed out. Do I need a jumper from switch 2 to 3? ...


You are replacing single-pole switch, then 0141224 is correct choice.
It sounds like your have wiring wrong.
No jumper is needed from other switch, all you need are two wires from replaced switch plus a neutral wire.
Open following link for detailed wiring instructions and online manual.

I am an electrician and my client wants me to reprogram the digital timer (Intermatic) I don't know the model # but it looks like the one on the previous page. Probably the most popular digital wall timer...


Below are links to digital timers to help identify your timer.
Manuals for each timer appear on page.
Programming takes patience, which might be why your customer wants you to do it.
And these 1-year warranty timers go bad, and then timer will not reprogram, which may be another reason why customer wants you to do it.
Intermatic EJ500 and ST01C are battery operated, and will not program if battery is low.
Aube has rechargeable battery that is not replaceable, and this timer will not program if battery is bad.
Other timers shown below have clocks that operate on 120V circuit and require white neutral before display lights up.

Generally each programming is same: You set current time. Some timers you set daylight savings time. Some timers are 7-day, and some offer dusk-to-dawn. For 7-day, you set event1 ON and then event1 OFF for up to 7 programs. You choose the days for each event to operate. Before programming, make a schedule so there are no overlaps or conflicts in programming.
With Intermatic EJ500 and ST01C, event1 is the ON event and event2 is the OFF event, up to 40 events.

Add a comment if you hit trouble spot when programming.
Also fixya offers live phone support for a price.

I have a utilitech 7 day in wall digital timer and would like to install it but have no clue how to. can you get me started


You want to install Utilitec in-wall 7-day timer that has 4 wires: red, white, black and green.

You are replacing a single pole switch that controls a light or several lights.
There is not a second switch that controls same lights.

The switch has 3 wires.
Generally there are two insulated wires and a bare ground wire.
Add a comment any time.

Here's what to do:
I have tested these timers for wiring and programming.
Get started and instructions will make sense as you go.
Turn off circuit beaker to switch.
Remove old switch.

1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire using one of the yellow wire nuts included with timer. Put two wires together so they are even at ends. Put wire nut over wire ends. Rotate wire nut clockwise between fingers until very tight.

2) Switch has 2 insulated wires. Take switch wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire using two more yellow wire nuts. Choose either one for now. You may have to reverse these two wires in a minute.

3) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Remove the wire nut, but do not untwist the white wires. Connect timer-white to these wires. Then put original wire nut back over white wires.

4) If electric box does not have white wires described in step 3, 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 from step 2.

I can not get the timer to automatically turn off and on UTILITECH 7-DAY DIGITAL IN WALL TIMER


Utilitec sells two different 7-day timers.
Open following two links to identify timer, see manual, and read wiring instructions:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0141224.html

From description of problem, it sounds that timer programming is not correct.
Each event needs ON time and OFF time.
If ON time is set.but OFF time is not set, then timer will turn ON and never turn OFF.
ON and OFF times must match days with each other.
Also if programs overlap or conflict, timer will not operate as expected.

I think instructions for both timers say that programs can be reviewed by pressing PROG button.
Re-read manual carefully.
Write out parts of manual that are confusing.

Add a comment for more free help.
Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.

If your box contains 2 and only 2 wires, then the Utilitec timer will not work.
You need the Intermatic ST01C or EJ500 timers that operate with a battery.

I have tested the Intermatic and Utilitec timers:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0141224.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#wire
Do not connect white and red wires together on any timer, but thank you for solving the problem why lights blink when connecting timers.

Now lets look at your wires.
Scrape paint off the wires so you can identify white and black.
According to your information, the black wire inside box will connect to timer-black wire.
The red wire always goes to Load (your light, fan, motor)
The white wire is necessary to complete a circuit so the clock inside timer will operate.
The timer has a clock just like your alarm clock, and it needs to connect back to neutral busbar in breaker box.
This is why the battery-operated timers will work with two wires, the clock runs on battery.
The Utilitec timer-white wire is the wire that goes to Neutral
The timer-white wire is supposed to connect to the other white wires that are twisted together and covered with a wire nut ... but some boxes do not have this neutral wire
To work-around, the timer-white wire can also connect to a bare ground wire.
The bare ground wire also connects to Neutral busbar in breaker box

If you do not have a neutral or ground wire as described above, then you need the battery-powered ST01C or EJ500 Intermatic timers.
See if you can pull some more of the wire into your box ... there might be a ground wire that was cut off and pulling more wire might reveal a ground wire. This will salvage the project.
Aplus is one of many places that sell the Intermatic timer

Hello, I bought an in door smart digital timer (G.E.) or Jasco product for my front porch light. I hooked all the wires as instructed and programmed according to instructions.

Can the Utilitech Mode # 0141224 be used as a 3 way or is it single pole only. No where on the package is that informatio given. Thank you


I believe it is a single pole only, and also requires a neutral to operate.I'm assuming it has black(line) red(load) white(neutral) green(ground) If you need a three-way or only have a switch leg in your box (no white wires) then I'd recommend one of intematic models that can be connected either as a single pole or 3way and requires no neutral.
