SOURCE: Wiring installation

You do need a 208/240 volt supply from your service panel. The green is ground, white is nuetral, and the red and black should measure 120 volts each to ground or 240/208 between each other. It is normal for most breaker panels to supply 208/240 between adjacent insulators. If you are only getting 1/2 of that then the circuit breaker may not be straddling the insulator bar but be 1/2 notch out and both breaker pins contacting the same 110 supply.

You will have to have schematics from the old wiring diagram. Then you will have to confirm its consistency with actual old wiring before you can be sure that the wires run to the proper places on the old heater and a/c system. This sounds like a gas furnace and is simpler than a heatpump. Once you know what distinguishes the wires with the same color, you should label them and then you may call them a different color if they were wired with wrong wire colors. You may be in luck if you go to the furnace control box an look at the terminals.. They are usually labeled with a R for Red and W for white and Bl for Blue and B or Black. If you have other colors on these then it sounds that it was wired with wire spare wire by someone who knew what they were doing but neglected to leave a path for someone else follow.
You may be able to use a continuity tester of circuit tester to id these wires that are in question...
ie, once indintified, you can match with the requirements of the new stat.

SOURCE: i have 2 black, 2 red and 2 white wires from the

In your wall box you should have two cables these wires are coming from. The cables are 3 wire w/ground so that you can use 2,3,and4 way switches in the house.

One cable is a line cable, the other is a load. In other words, there is one cable with incoming voltage, and the other cable is a follower, or a cable with wires to pass current along to the next wall switch.

The dimmers are very finicky. One good spark from touching the wrong wire will immediately short it out.

Without knowing whether you are in a 2 or 3 way switch situation it is impossible to accurately tell you which connect to what.

If I were you I would go to Lowes or Home Depot and buy a good wiring book (like Stanley) and go home and sit down and draw out your circuit.

Note that if these wires are for 2 or 3 way switches it changes things. But that book should help you identify it.

SOURCE: GE digital timer. Instructions say to: 1)

Find the Hot wire:
Your switch has 2 wires. One of these wires is Hot, and one goes to load. Disconnect wires from switch. Turn on power. Do not stand on wet surface. Test each wire to bare copper wire. When tester lights up, that is Hot wire. The other wire goes to load.

Connect wires:
Hot wire goes to Black timer wire
Wire to load goes to Red timer wire
White wire connects to white wires that are twisted together
Bare copper wire connects to Green wire from timer

How to connect white wire to white wires that are twisted together.
a) Strip white timer wire so you have 1-1/2 " of bare wire. Stranded wire will wrap around other wires easily.
b) Remove wire nut. DO NOT UNTWIST wires.
c) Hold all whites together so bare copper lines up. Wrap stranded copper around the twisted wire.
d) Replace wire nut, or use larger wire nut. Twist real tight. Do not use tape. You can solder the connection.
e) When done, pull on white time wire to make sure it is held tight. Push whites back into box.

Copy following link to identify timer and download manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/UPM-timers-and-manuals.html#ETW
ETW can be used to replace 3-way switch.
3-way switching has 2 switches. Timer can replace one switch or the other switch, but not both.
The remaining 3-way switch must be rewired as shown in manual. What the remaining 3-way switch does is reverse timer programming, so programmed ON times become OFF times, and OFF times become ON times.

Timer has 4 wires Blue, Green White and Black but wall switch only has black and white. where do I connect all the wires?


You are replacing a single-pole switch that has two wires.

You posted under UPM timer.
But UPM timers have a red wire instead of a blue wire, so you have different brand.

Some GE programmable timers and some Leviton timers have a blue wire.
Here are instructions:
-Green wire goes to bare ground wire.

-Timer black wire goes to black wire
-Timer blue wire goes to white wire.

-Located in back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. These are neutral wires. Timer white wire connects to these wires. This will power electronics inside the timer.
-If your box does not have white neutral wires described above, then connect timer white wire to bare ground wire along with timer green wire.
-Turn power ON, and push on-off button. If timer works, then it is wired correctly.
- If timer doesn't work, then reverse Timer blue and Timer black wires.
- If lights blink on-and-off, then you connected white wire incorrectly, review wiring shown above.

If your box does not have neutral wires or bare ground wire as described above, then buy Walmart.s Brinks 46-1022 or Intermatic ST01C or Intermatic EJ500 or Aube T1032. These timers do not need neutral or bare ground wire.

GE smart digital timer was installed according to instructions. Timer was set to turn lights on at 5:30, and the lights blink on and off but will not stay on. I tried reprogramming, but same result. ...


It sounds like wiring is wrong.

If you have GE Tork Intermatic UPM Woods Brinks Hagar Pass-n-Seymour Stanley Westek in-wall timer, with red, black, white and green wires, then you probably put red and white wires together.
Add a comment any time.

See instructions along with image at following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html

Heres how to wire timer

1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire.
2) Switch has 2 wires. Take switch wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire. Choose either one for now.
3) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white to these wires.
4) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground, along with timer-green wire.
5) Turn on electricity, and push ON-OFF button > with GE timer, door is push-button switch. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

I also am having trouble with this timer. I've got the program set for when I want it to go on but can't figure out how to put in the time I want it to stop. I don't understand where the countdown timer...


ETW350 is programmable timer that offers 3 different timer
functions: Program, countdown and random.
Timer has 20 different settings.
UPM site is not available recently, but UPM timers are still being sold.

Operation manual is not very clear how to program ON and OFF times.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/UPM-etw350.pdf

That being said, usually with programmable timers, you program ON time. And then program OFF time.

I do not own this timer so I can't test ETW350 like I've tested other timers.
I think the way this timer works, is program1 is ON.
And program2 is OFF.
Again, manual is not CLEAR about ON and OFF times.

Following instructions assume timer is wired correctly, timer is set for current time, and you want to set 'timer' function and not 'random' function.
Here's how to set program1.
Press arrow buttons until 1 shows in display. This is program1.
Press Set button.
Select day for program1 ON using arrow keys
Press Set button.
Select hour for program1 ON using arrow keys.
Press Set button.
Select minute for program1 ON using arrow keys.
Press Set button.
Use arrow keys until 2 appears on display. This is program2.
I believe program2 is for OFF times.
Set program2 using same steps above.
Be careful to match ON and OFF days ... for example ON 7pm Monday and OFF 9pm Friday will keep lights on from Mon through FRI.
Conflicts in programming will cause timer not to work. For example program1 ON 7pm Monday, program2 OFF 9pm Monday ... but programs3-4 say opposite times.
Make a schedule of program times before starting to avoid conflicts.
Try steps above and test fire that timer, and then add a comment.

How do we set the time to stop on a UPM ETW350? I know how to set the time to start but i do not know how to set the time to stop. Thank you


In wall timers and manuals are shown on following link.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Programmable.html#ETW

ETW350 manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/UPM-etw350.pdf

Select from 3 different functions:
1) 24-hour Programmable
2) Countdown timer function so lights turn off after period of time
3) Random function so lights turn on randomly and house looks lived-in

I am not going to write out the steps because they show in the manual.
But a specific part of the manual might be confusing.
So add a comment and I will help until we will get the timer working.

I have two 110V lines (two wire) coming into a box. I have 2 loads out (two wire). 1 load is always on and one is on a switch. All four whites are wire-nutted together. How do I incorporate this timer...


If I understand this correctly, you a have a 120 volt supply cable consisting of a black and white insulated wire. You have two cables that go out of the box - each of those cables has a black and white insulated wires as well. One of those load cables is to remain on all the time, the other is to be controlled by this switch.

You didn't provide a model number for your switch - and there are several made. If yours is the ETW350, or similar; it has a BLUE load wire, a WHITE neutral wire, a BLACK supply wire and a GREEN ground wire.

Connections are as follows. UPM GREEN wire connects to ground (that should be the the other bare or green insulated wires in the box). The UPM BLACK will connect to the other BLACK "supply wire" that is currently connected to the other BLACK "always on" load wire. The UPM BLUE connects to the BLACK load wire that is to be switched on and off. Lastly, the UPM WHITE wire will connect to the other WHITE wires that are currently all connected together.

If yours is not this model - I have no way of knowing how to help you wire it with any reasonable certainty. If you are unsure of the the model or are unable to locate the model info or manual, please call a licensed electrician to perform this work for you. Be safe, be smart.

I hope this helps & good luck!
