I'm trying to replace a Paragon ecectrical timer that powers my septic blower on/off. It's 115v system with a standard White, Black, and Green for the motor and the power supply. The timer has 2 Black, Red, Blue and Green leads. Anyone have any suggestions? Link is to a wiring diagram that I don't understand! Thanks.

It is not clear to me either.

But what I am GUESSING is that that the thin lines represent the timmer and the dark ones the field wiring.

The two parallel bars show the switch that the timer is operation.

Apparelty it is isolated from the timer has has the blue and red leads.

Now they talke about Black and Yellow leads and where they are it does not relate very well to the timer motor if that is what they are far.

But you have 2 blacks. So it APPEARS that they are the power connections to the timer motor. But I can't be real sure.

IF that is the case then one of the black leads will connect to the power white along with the white to your load.

The other black will connect to the power black and the timer switch (blue).

The red connects to the load black.

And the green is a ground connnection.

The black leads are the timer power for 120 volt system.

The yellow leads are timer power for 208 or 240 volt system.

The red and blue leads are the switch.

Connect the whites together.

Connect the two black timer leads to the power black and white.

Connect the blue wire also to the power black wire.

Connect the load black wire to the red wire.

You are using the right side diagram unless you have a thermostat also to control the load.
