Can't get timer to work. Wires R red, blue,green. Is red hot, blue neutral?


You should've fixed your Intermatic timer for $20 with new clock motor or trippers.

GE 15306 is 120Volt timer.
You probably have 240Volt power to pump.

Copy following links to help solve problem, and repair the Intermatic timer so you can return the GE for refund at Home Depot.

I write complete answers, and know the GE timer line.
Open links to illustrate discussion.
Aug 2011, Jasco does not show a manual for 15351 timer.

They show 120V 15350, which is identical to 120V 15306.

That makes me believe that 240Volt GE15351 is identical to 240V GE15307.
BUT the 15351 might be a DPST with NO and NC terminals >>> add a comment if your instructions say anything about NO NC terminals.

If 15351 and 15307 are identical, then your wiring is 100% correct, assuming you connected hot leads to terminals L and 1.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/GE-15307-wiring-250.jpg
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15306

Checking details:
1) You checked that terminals L and 1 are not connected by a brass bridge.
The 120Volt timer comes with a brass bridge across L and 1
2) Timer mechanism is attached to enclosure with 2 screws. Remove timer mechanism from enclosure, and compare back of your timer with following image to confirm timer is DPST.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/IMG_9334-GE15307-500.jpg
3) Test 10-3 wire from breaker box. Test each wire to bare ground to confirm the hot wires. Then test each hot wire to other wire to confirm neutral wire. Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power and stand on dry boards.
4) Read nameplate on motor to make sure it is single-speed 240Volt.
5) IF motor is 2-speed, then look at wiring diagram and then add a comment with that information.
6) If pump motor trips breaker when connected directly, then pump might be shorted out. Double check wiring diagram on pump.

7) Take photos of problem. Post photos on flickr. Then add a comment with links to photos so I can see wiring diagrams, for possible help.

http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15306

GE 15306 is a version of 120Volt Tork 1101 indoor-outdoor timer sold at Home Depot under GE name and number.

You have 2 cables.
One cable comes from Breaker box, and other cable goes to Load (light, fan, motor, pump).
Each cable has black and white wire.
1) Cable from breaker box: Black wire H Hot connects to to terminal L.
Notice there is a metal bridge that connects terminal L and terminal 1.
If metal bridge is missing, use a jumper wire and connect L and 1.
White N Neutral from breaker box connects to terminal X.
2) Cable going to Load:
Black connects to terminal 2
White connects to terminal X.
So both white wires are on terminal X.

GE Mechanical Timer Box 15306. The manual on off works the sign but the timer is not keeping time. The clock hasn't changed at all. Is there a way to start clock. This is a brand new timer


Make sure the bridge is installed between terminal L and terminal 1. Make sure the incoming hot wire is connected to terminal 1 and the outgoing load wire is connected to terminal 2. If they are swapped it will give the symptoms that you described. Both neutrals should be connected to the X terminal. If the connections are as above and the timer still doesn't work, it's defective, return it to the store for a replacement.

GE Indoor Outdoor Timer # 15306 the clock is working and the when the time for it to go on it goes on but when the time comes for it to shut off it does not trip the off switch. I then have to shut it down...


1) If analog dial keeps time, I can only guess that OFF tripper is not in position correctly, or tripper is worn or defective, or that manual override lever is defective. Trippers are made of softer metal so they wear down before other parts of timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/GE%2015306%20Mechanical%20Outdoor%20Box%20Timer-24%20Hour.jpg
2) Buy Tork P47 trippers to replace GE 15306 trippers
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#Trippers

3) Open following link for GE timer resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15306

4) 15306 is heavy-duty indoor-outdoor version of Tork 1800 series or 7200 series 120Volt analog timer that is sold online and at Home Depot under GE brand name.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Tork-1800-600.jpg

5) You can buy new timer at Home Depot and return defective one in new package.

6) The on and off trippers are attached to the analog dial.
Dial rotates as time passes.
Trippers make physical contact with the manual override lever. The ON tripper pushes lever one direction and the OFF tripper moves lever other direction.
The override lever rotates a cam located on back of timer that opens and closes electrical contacts.

Installing a outdoor timer t104m this is for the pool cleaner,need wireing instruction.next to pool pump timer.


Open following link for wiring diagrams and manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

240Volt T104 can be wired many different ways.
What is the significance of 'next to the pool pump timer?'
Are you getting power off the 240V pool pump timer to operate the new T104? This is perfectly fine. The pool pump wires would bring power from the breaker box.
Is the new T104 going to control 120Volt lights? The timer can do that, it just has to be wired correctly.
In any case, the T104 has 240Volt (or 277V) clock motor, and clock will not operate with 120V

If you add specific details, I can help with exact wiring diagram for your project.
