I'm having a problem wiring a 24 hr LCD programmable timer switch. I can't find a contact number/help line for the manufacturer...
The SWITCH has 4 wires. Green - ground; Black - Hot line in; Blue - "Black wire to the load"; and White - neutral.
I took the old switch out which is on a 14/2 15A 120V breaker, and controlls 3 outdoor lights. To my surprise, the switch for these 3 lights had a black wire attached to the bottom terminal, and a white wire attached to the top. That's it, nothing else could be seen leaving the box.
I've tried every combination to wire this timer switch it - it doesn't work. The only thing I can think out is the two of the wires on the switch must hook up to one of the wires (black or white) that were initially controlling the circuit on the old switch...
Do you have any ideas? Thanks so much.
