Question about Hardware & Accessories

Open Question

I have lost the settings directions for my Kenco Smart Timer and would appreciate it if you could assist me.

New batteries, etc--I know it works but the Smart Timer 2's are different than the others- this is one of the original 2's - aluminum box , black trap door opening for battery, test button , etc.

I had the same problem with my Craftsman opener but different model. However to fix this I simply followed the instructions that came with the opener and reprogramed the remote to the opener. The instructions are in your owners manual and are pretty straight forward.. John

SOURCE: Smart UPS 1500 - battery level green lights blink on and off

You need to run recalibration on the unit.  The supplied PowerChute software & cable will allow you to do this if you hook the UPS up to a PC (I know it works with the serial cable, not sure about USB).  If you only have a MAC then I cannot offer a solution other than to buy the standalone PowerView device from APC.  It will cost a bit more than a battery, but may save you from buying needless batteries in the future.  I finally broke down an bought one, but note that I was still having the problem after the 1st recalibration.  By trial and error (and maybe a vague memory) I put my MAC in sleep mode, that dropped the load to stop the lights from flashing.  Then I recalibrated with a 22% load and now it finally seems better (lights no longer flashing).  This was with a Smart-UPS 1000.
Let me know if that helps.

My 2004 v6 2wd highlander has the same battery, and I am just now replacing it. What is that 7 years? I found via google that it has 550 CCA. I think it would have lasted longer if not for kids leaving lights on every few weeks and an unusually cold winter for this far south.

The timer has 3 wires, blue, black and green and the wires from the outlet after I removed the original switch are 2 black and one red. How should I connect the new timer? The timer is a GE 15313.


There are 2 different timers: 15313 and 15312
15313 has Black Blue and Green wires
15312 has Black Red White and Green wires

1) Your Switch has 3 wires: sounds like a 3-way switch at each end of hallway.
The 15313 timer cannot be used to replace 3-way switch
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15312

2) Buy GE 15312 timer for 3-way switching.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-GE-15312-timer.html#3-way

3) GE 15313 is for single-pole only, and rated for incandescent lights only and will not work for CFL, LED bulbs, or other inductive loads.

4) GE 15313 timer will work for single-pole or 3-way, and work with any type of bulb, or load up to 100 feet away.

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.

I've tested these timers.
Here's what to do:
1) Connect green to bare copper
2) Switch has 2 wires. For now, connect these two wires to timer-black and timer-red. Choose either one.
3) In back of wall box are white neutral wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Timer-white wire connects to these white neutral wires. This action gives power to time clock.
4) If wall box does not have white neutrals described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground wire. Bare ground connects to neutral busbar in breaker box.
5) Turn on power and click manual override button or switch. If lights turn on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not turn on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

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

I found out the intermatic did not work as usual, just change new battery, i try to program the schedule, but it did not work.


If you have a battery operated timer, it is probably the Intermatic ST01C or EJ500.

http://waterheatertimer.org/Programmable.html
The link above will help you identify your timer.

As a general rule, if a new battery does not revive the Intermatic timer, then timer needs to be replaced. Make sure you have electricity. And be sure to mark your wires before removing timer. Mark the black wire that connected to timer-black wire. It's the hot wire from breaker box.
You can replace with same model and brand so your wiring is EZ.

The ST01C and EJ500 are 7-day timers with up to 40 programs per week. They each connect with 2 wires. Black and Blue with red wire capped off. Just mark your wires before you disconnect old timer. And then reconnect new timer wires just as old timer was connected. The red wire is capped off.

The Aube T1032 is also a 7-day timer with 7 programs per week. This timer connects a bit differently. It connects with 3 wires. You put the black where old timer-black wire connected. And then you connect the red and blue together and connect them where the old timer-blue wire connected.

Other timers require wiring that is bit different, but the page link above shows the wiring ... and you can re-post another question any time >>> or respond to this answer.

Keep us posted.

I am replacing an in-wall timer switch that controls porch lights. Old timer has only two black wires, that were hooked to the 2 black wires in the wall. The new timer (GE 15086) has black, red, white...


Did you get instructions with the switch? Does it say what is line and what is load? You can hook the green and the white to the green, it won't hurt, but I think one of the colored wires is in and one is out, you have to find out which one is hot. Got a tester? The new timer is polarized for modern electricity, which hasn't gone into effect yet, it is coming. Your house wouldn't have it. If it does, you will know by the fuse box being separated by ground and neutral, the old ones were wired together. If it is, the new switch will only work with the white wire to neutral and the green to ground. Now that you are totally confused. try wiring it up with the green to ground, red and black to to the 2 blacks. See what happens. Hope this helps.

Woods In-wall Timer Heavy Duty, Model #59018 -- I just installed my timer and was able program and set the time, but when I push the manual override button to turn the light on, the light flashes and turns...


Quick answer:
1) Programming steps say 'press clock key to return to current time and day'
2) Use mode button and change between AUTO & RND >> try manual override in each mode
3) Does timer turn lights on-and-off with program, or do they blink too?
4) Swap Black and Red wires
5) Try timer on light in different room, on different circuit breaker
6) Timer might be defective

Longer answer:
Woods 59018 manual does not show troubleshooting steps except 'check wiring; switch Red and Black leads; and/or reset programming'

Seems unlikely you could program timer unless timer is wired correctly ... unless there is a short of some kind.

To review wiring.
Green goes to bare ground wire.
White goes to Neutral white wire (neutral is usually 2 or 3 white wires twisted together and shoved to back of box)
Black must connect to Hot from circuit breaker
Red must connect to Load (light, fan, motor etc)

How to test wiring
:
Disconnect timer and set aside.
Mark each wire
Separate wires in box so they don't touch
Use ordinary tester (you can tape tester leads to wood sticks)
Turn on power
You should have two black wires that were originally connected to switch
Test black wires to bare ground > when tester lights up, that is the Hot wire.
The other black wire goes to Load

Now you want to find the neutral.
Test the Hot black wire to white wires in box.
When tester lights up, that is neutral.

If everything checks out, I guess timer is defective.

Review:
Black goes to Hot wire from breaker box
Red wire goes to Load (light, fan, motor)
White wire goes to Neutral
Green to bare copper ground wire

Orientation:
Your original switch had 2 wires plus bare ground.
One of these wires is Hot, the other goes to Load.
You said original wires are Red and Black

How do you find Hot wire?
-Your original switch had 2 wires.
-Remove timer from box.
-Pull original 2 wires out where you can test them
-Turn on power
-Use regular tester
-Tape tester leads to wood sticks so your hands stay away from voltage
-Power is on
-Test each original wire to bare ground wire
-When tester lights up, that is Hot wire ... this wire connects to Black wire on timer
- The other wire goes to Load so it connects to Red wire on timer

How to test for Neutral wire
Test Hot wire to your white wires - No need to untwist them.
When tester lights up, that is Neutral
White wire from timer connects to Neutral.
Green goes to ground wire.

How to reset timer
I'm not sure which timer you have. Probably GE 15086. Reset is small round button below HOUR button. Use paper clip and push-in reset until timer flashes 12 o'clock.

My GE 7-Day Digital Timer model 15086 flashes on


I just bought one today and installed it. It does the same thing - flashes the lights off and on. After some research on the net, it seems that the problem is that an old house is wired with two pole wiring and the new fixtures, (timers included) are 3 pole. The conclusion I have found is that it will not work in a 2 pole wired house. There supposedlly are timers available for 2 pole wiring. I hope this helps. If you find out anything different, please let me know.
