Andy,
Unfortunately this timer doesn’t have a push button override. The switch on the bottom when in the off position will cut power to the timer so the lights stay off even though the dial will continue to rotate. When in the switch is in the timer position the lights will come on and go off at the programed times.

These are 110v switchs. Most electric hot water heaters are 220v, 30a. They have bigger timers for them. A lot of smaller HW heaters in motorhomes are 110v. These switches are only good for about 15amps

i already bought a timer from a local hardware store, it had three wires black red and white. after looking around online it seems that the timer will not function without the white wire. the problem is that there are only two wires in the box, i attached one to the red wire of the timer and the other to the black wire of the timer, but the timer only functions as a light switch and the timer portion doesn't function. is there a way to attach the white wire to make the timer i have work? do i have to buy a different type of timer (please dont tell me battery powered :( )? or do i need to call an electrician to install more wiring? please help thank you have a good weekend/day/night

I’ve used Intermatic (model EJ351) timers to control my front & back door lights for over a decade. I purchased them at Home Depot, but HD no longer carries them so I bought a GE basic timer when one of the Intermatics died. The GE package says that it will replace a single-pole switch, but that is not necessarily true for all applications -- like mine, for example. If the switch to be replaced has only two wires in the box (i.e., the wires to/from the controlled light), the GE will not work because it also requires a hot and a neutral to power its timer motor. The Intermatic apparently powers itself by current trickling through the controlled light, so only needs the to/from wires. The Intermatic also has a “variable on/off” feature which shifts the times slightly on each cycle to give the house a “lived-in” look. Since I do not have the extra hot/neutral wires in the switch box, I ended up returning the GE to HD and buying an Intermatic online for about $16. I wish HD would resume carrying the Intermatic EJ351 -- it is much more versatile.

I would caution you about modifying electrical gadgets...expecially if you live in an older home with older wiring. I would return the timer you bought and speak with a person at home depot so the can show you wht options you have. Now, if you are looking at having a timer for an outside light to it will come on and go off automatically, you may consider using a light sensor device of some sort that goes between the light bulb and ficture...easy, inexpensive and works great if you don;t mind the light coming on at dusk and going off at dawn. Not sure if what you need a timer for so that is only a thought...good luck.

Hello danny boy, I’m Newf from the Home Depot’s how-to Community. Thank you for your question.

I think that you have already figured this one out. The white wire on this timer is necessary because the timer needs to use a small amount of current to operate. Without the white wire there is no complete circuit for the timer, although the switch part would still work. The only other way to supply power to the timer would be those models with batteries that you don’t want me to tell you about, and I understand why.

The good news is that since you have two black wires in the box, you probably also have a tubular conduit system rather than a cable. This would make pulling a new white wire from the load box relatively easy.

I hope this helps,
Newf.

I wired according to the diagram and double checked all my connection. I followed the instructions exactly, turn power off, wired exactly as described. You can listen to the wall and hear the timer ticking yet the clock does not move. I personally think this is a piece of garbage. There should be no need to change wires, in fact you may damage the timer by doing so. Is there anything that could be wrong such as the timer gauge not properly engaged?

The timer needs to be wired with the current going the correct direction.
That is because the timer needs to have electricity even when the lights are off. If you have the hot wires on the wrong leads then the timer works when the lights are on but not when they are off.
Solution: simply switch the way you presently have the wires and it should be fine. Not the green ground but the black and white. The best tell is if the timer works when the lights are on.

I think the timer is okay, you just have the red wire connected to the wrong black wire. Try switching the red-to-black wire and see is that helps. Remember, the wires in your box should be two black, one white and one green. The wires from your timer should be one white, one black, one red and one green. Connect them like this; Green to Green...White to White...Black to Black....Red to the second Black (if the lights go one when you switch them, but the timer does not work, reverse the Black to Black to a Black to Red and then connect the remaining two Blacks together).

Looks like your timer has pins (levers) that slide into those slots, to turn the lights on and off. If you have only one pin inserted that could be your problem. Sounds like your timer is working but jut needs the pin to actually turn the on/off wheel in two positions...one, when you want the lights on and one when you want the lights off. You you have two pins inplace and they are different colors (one is red and the other is black) try switching them. Good luck

Hi Don Bilyeu,

Thank you for your question.

I did reach out to the manufacturer on this question and below is their response to you:

Both the GE 15070 and GE 15325 timers require your switch location to have access to all 4 wires necessary for a lighting circuit. Your wiring should have a Line (hot), load, ground and neutral wires. A standard toggle switch will have only a Line and Load wire on it (typically it will also have a ground wire, but not in all instances.)

Depending on the age of the house and who originally wired this switch, neutral return wires may not have been routed through this location. Typically the neutral wires are a bundle of white wires in the back of the box not connected to anything else.

Also it is important to properly identify the line (hot) and load wires in the wall and properly connect the line (hot) wire to the black wire on the timer. In some instances these 2 are both the same color when you remove them from the existing switch and if reversed can lead to incorrect operation.

With that said however, If you do not have access to the neutral return wires in this location the timer will not work correctly, as there are no other methods to wire this switch without them. If you are not sure whether you have the correct wires or are not sure which color wires correspond with those wires needed please contact a licensed electrician in your area for help.”

Hope this helps!

Question

Hi, we've had this timer installed for a year but its never worked. Husband took it apart yesterday and found that there are 2 black wires, 2 white wires, a red wire and a set of 3 copper wires in the box. The GE 15070 Timer has one each of black white and red. Original installer attached timer to box one for one and capped the extras in the box. When reinstalled, we attached 2 from box to one each for white and black, red still one to one. The timer will now run but then stops at end of set time, timer does not continue to rotate. Is this a we wired it incorrectly problem, or is the box a 2 way switch, there's another switch on the other side of the wall that runs these same outside lights. I noticed this morning that the instructions note this timer is for a one way switch only. I'm guessing its the latter and I'll need to return the timer. Thank you for your help!

Turn off your Breaker first.

Connect the timers Green (groung) to the ground bundle (copper bundle or post).
Connect the timers white wire to the white bundle (usually found tucked in the back of the box).
Connect the timers red wire to one of the black wires
Connect the timers black wire to the other black wire from the switch.
Turn Breaker back on

To test the system, manually switch on the lights with the times manual funaction (they vary on all timers). The lights should come on. Next, set the timers time to the correct time (usually by rotating the wheel so the correct time lines up with a small arrow). Walk away for an hour or so and then come back and look at the timers time setting. If the wheel jas rotated and is still showing the correct time, then set your timer to the times you want it to come on and off. You should have no problems moving forward. If when you come back after that firsthour and you find that the wheel has not rotated and is still showing the same time as when you first set it, switch off your Breaker and change the red-to-black wire to the other black wire. Turn Breaker back on and set the timer to the correct time. After an hour, you should see that the timer has rotated. If is has, you are set. If it hasn't, then you may have a bad timer.

Conventional wiring practice would have a black power wire as input to this timer, and a red wire as power out to the load appliance.

You can find more information at this site:

I hope this helps,
Newf.

If your timer is working (wheel turns as time passes) then all you do is get the pins (leveers) and insert one in the slot representing the time you want them to come on and one in the slot when you want the lights to go off. Once the pins are in place you can manually rotate the wheel to see if the lights come on and off. SOme timers use specific pins (colored) and so if your lights come on and do not go off you may have to swap positions of the pins.

FYI these pins turn a small wheel that acts like a light switch...as the timer wheel turns the pin kicks over the swicth.

To set current time, rotate the dial until the arrow in the center points to the current time.

Start with all tabs at the center of the dial. Push all the tabs out for the time period you want the lights on and at the center for times off.

If, during an ON cycle the manual switch is thrown to the OFF position on the GE 15325 timer, will it revert back to the next preset on/off cycle, or does the timer stay in the off mode until the switch is thrown back to the TIMER position?

I beleive that the manual switch is a switch...you turn the lights (power) on or off. If you turn it off, the timer will continue to work but the current will not flow. Now, I am assuming this so the best way to find out is to wait until the lights are on and manually switch to off, and wait 24 hours and see what happens. Let us know...

I'm trying to install a timer to control my porch lights. the timer hill be housed in an electrical box which also houses a 3-way switch for my interior hall lights. The box has only one red wire which is connected to the 3-way switch, and several black wires & white ones. The ground wire is unshielded copper secured to the box.
My new timer has 4 wires: Red, Black, White & Green. Where do I connect the Red one?

Typically, there is a bundle of white wires in the box, a ground wire (green) and two black wires going to the regular switch. On the timer there is a white wire, a black wire, a red wire and a ground. If you have a red wire already in the box connected to a different device, ignore it. You are looking for a white bundle, a ground bundle and two blacks going to your existing light switch.

Turn off your Breaker first.

Connect the timers Green (ground) to the ground bundle (copper bundle or post).
Connect the timers white wire to the white bundle (usually found tucked in the back of the box).
Connect the timers red wire to one of the black wires from the switch.
Connect the timers black wire to the other black wire from the switch.
Turn Breaker back on

To test the system, manually switch on the lights with the times manual funaction (they vary on all timers). The lights should come on. Next, set the timers time to the correct time (usually by rotating the wheel so the correct time lines up with a small arrow). Walk away for an hour or so and then come back and look at the timers time setting. If the wheel has rotated and is still showing the correct time, then set your timer to the times you want it to come on and off. You should have no problems moving forward.

If when you come back after that first hour you find that the wheel has not rotated and is still showing the same time as when you first set it, switch off your Breaker and change the red-to-black wire to the other black wire and attach the remaining two black wires together. Turn Breaker back on and set the timer to the correct time. After an hour, you should see that the timer has rotated. If is has, you are set. If it hasn't, then you may have a bad timer.

before you turn off the power to the box and for the switch you are replacing, use a tester to determine which wire is hot all the time to the switch and which wire to the switch is only hot when you turn the lights on. Now turn off the power and wire the timer black to the wire you determined hot all the time and wire the red to the wire that was only hot when you turned the lights on. White goes to white (s) and green to the bare copper wiire (s) in the box. Put it all in the box and replace the cover and timer dial. Follow the directions for setting the timer and you are good to go.

There are a number of tutorial videos that show timer installations. My favorite one was at this site:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kuwZNPsVKHM (Sorry it didn't show up as a link; copy and paste.)

I felt quite confident that I could install it myself after watching this - however a "dutiful" son in law installed it for me. Hoping it shows you what to do with your "leftover" red wire.

The problem is that the load wire and the hot wire need to be correct. This is not in the instructions. If the lights work but the timer does not then the wires are crossed. Simply switch the red wire and the black wire. Then the time should work.

Hello Monika ,

Once you align the time you need to flip the pins in/out to trigger the lights.
Please refer to the relevant photos, I've marked a pin location for you to see.

Hope this helps.
