Red wire is used for 3-way only... cap off for single pole
White is neutral, black is hot, blue goes to load, green is ground
Copy following link for wiring your timer:

If box does NOT have white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut: then suggest to buy Ei600 or ST01 battery operated timer

if it won't trip it, the on pin is not lining up right and u need to take it off and put it making sure it is right. if that's not it u got a bad timer

Intermatic... | Answered on Mar 04, 2015


my suggestion would be to replace the whole thing, if that gear is wore out. it would get ruined again run against a wore part. I would say you will be fixin it constantly just replacing gear

click the link below it should help u a lot, if u still can't get it right, contact me @ nchronicpain@gmail.com and I will walk you thru it using Skype or something. don't fully understand what u r trying to do. r u using the wires from the sprinkler to turn it or turn it off.

I am going to try my best to tell what I think u should either way. if u are using the NC to make the sprinklers run when the timer engages and turns power on. you hook the common wire to the clock side along with the wire for the NO to the same terminal.
the other wire hooks to the NO or the NC contact

Intermatic... | Answered on Mar 03, 2015


if u just have the 3 wires there: white, black, ground(can b bare or green). usually the white is what they call a switch leg and it can be hot there in the box. u hook the white and the black to the terminals and the ground to its terminal, if it has on.

you should be ready to go, if not u can't contact me and I can walk u thru is u can take a pic of what u have it would b very helpful.
