Anyway, the fan is controlled via a standard light switch. The switch is supplied a black, white, and ground. The Intermatic Timer Switch E1210WC, has 4 wires (black, white, RED, and green).
The instructions state that the RED wire needs to be connected to the load - my fan in this case. White to nuetral, black to hot, and green to ground. Sounds simple enough ;).
I don't have RED!
Additionally, in this box where the switch is being replaced, I have another 3-way switch (controls the hallway light). There are two switches in the hallway. The one in the same box has a RED, White, and Black wire. Also, there is something "strange" - there is a black wire crimped together with a white wire. I'm not certain what that is.
I can get the fan to work, but only when either the light is ON or OFF, depending on where I connect the RED wire.
I read the instructions again - and this time, I connected Green to GND, black to black, red to white (I am assuming that either the black or white is considerd the load), and then I am connecting the white to the other switch in the wall. Again, in doing so I can only get the fan to turn on when the light is ON, or if I move the wire, when the light is OFF.
Any suggestions? (I've attached an image hope it helps!)
