SOURCE: Trying to replace Intermatic with Utilitech inwall

The wires on your new switch are intended for black = power .. white = neutral . and red = lights .. with two black wires on the old switch I am assuming that there is a bundle of white wires in that wall box, the white timer needs to join that bundle ... then you need to determine which black wire is the power from the electrical panel ( voltage tester) and connect to the black timer wire .. the red timer wire connects to the other black wire in the wall..

SOURCE: Utilitech Wall Timer #0192773 does not switch

Old timer: Intermatic EJ500 & ST01C timers have a battery. Battery operates the clock motor. Red wire is for 3-way circuit [a hallway with 2 switches is a 3-way circuit].

Utilitec timer, clock runs on 120Volt circuit instead of battery. So clock has to have power.

How to connect wires:
Black timer wire connects to hot wire from breaker box.
Red (or blue) timer wire goes to landscape lights.
White timer wire connects to white neutral wire [or if no neutral is available, connect to bare ground wire].
Green timer wire goes to bare ground wire.

How to find black hot wire and white neutral wire inside box
: Disconnect and separate wires so you can test. Use ordinary tester. Power is on. There is only 1 black hot wire inside each electrical box. Test each black wire to bare ground until tester light comes on > that identifies the black hot wire. Next, test black hot wire to white wires until tester light comes on > that is the neutral wire. Exception: This test does not necessarily work with 3-way switches since they reverse each time switch is thrown.

Sounds like this was probably a three-way switch you are replacing as there is no neutral (white) wire in the box. If so, you can splice the white wire to the green wire in other three-way switch box; then hook the green wire in the box you are placing the timer to the white wire of the Utilitech timer.

SOURCE: I have a Utilitech one

Thank you for including model number.
TM01DHBL is typical analog timer with 1/2 hour segments located around edge of dial.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-set-timers.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59366

There are no repairs for defective timer: Here are suggestions.
1) Locally purchased timer has longer warranty period since you can buy same timer later and return defect in new package.
2) Top of timer has slide switch. Most analog timers have 2-or-3 position switch that offers override capability. Set some segments, move slide switch each direction, and then manually rotate timer dial clockwise two full revolutions to watch how lamp turns on-off.
If lamp does not turn on-off with switch in at least one of the slide-switch positions, then timer is suspect.
3) Always a good policy to test outlets with cheap circuit analyzer to check for electrical abnormalities that can affect timer electronics.
Since this is mechanical timer with simple electric clock motor, chances are that reversed polarity will not immediately affect timer.
4) Put timer on a different outlet, controlling a different load, and see if problem is the same.
5) Make sure segments are pulled all the way up.

Take a moment and rate answer:
And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.

Utilitec 0192773 replaces single-pole switch and will not work for 3-way applications.

Open following link for clear wiring and programming steps for Utilitec 0192773
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html

Utilitec can also be tricky to program if you are setting up astro dawn-dusk function.

For others finding this thread, same wiring applies to in-wall programmable timers by GE, Woods, Swilight, Sylvania, Tork, Hagar, UPM, Leviton, Grasslin, Wattstopper, Westek, and Intermatic analog timers. Intermatic battery-operated, Brinks and Aube timers are wired differently since they also work for 3-way applications.

The reason there is 2 black in the wall is because a standard line breaking switch was used. Meaning the hot side of the light was the black wire once broken light goes off. You would hook the black from switch to black in wall and white from switch to other black in wall green is ground and red put wire nut on. Red is for a 2 switch system. Where one of two switches in same room controls same light. Its not needed. Take caution when doing this trun light on goto breaker box and flip breakers till you find the right one that powers that light. once lights off then do your thing replacing.
