SOURCE: fan runs all the time

IF IT IS A DIGITAL CONTROL, THE FAN, HUMIDITY, AND COMPRESSOR ARE ALL CONTROLLED WITH THE MAIN BOARD THAT IS LOCATED INSIDE THE TOP WHERE YOU SELECT THE SETTINGS. YOU CAN ORDER THIS CONTROL AT A LOCAL SERVICE CENTER OR YOU CAN GET ONLINE TO SEARS.COM AND SELECT PARTS. IT WILL WALK YOU THROUGH FINDING THE PART AND ORDERING THE PART.
I EXPECT IT TO BE APPROX 150.00 DOLLARS.

SOURCE: Bay Model # 526-012 Fans what size speed control

I can't see any reason why a Leviton fan speed control couldn't be used on any ceiling fan, after all, I don't even think Leviton makes ceiling fans. Second, you may be able to try using the 1.5 amp fan speed control and see if you can get by. The worst that could happen is the speed control wouldn't work or would only work for a short time and be junk.

SOURCE: not sure how to wire this switch

Switch will have a commom terminal that the hot wire connects to.
The other three terminals are for the devices -- light, fan and other device.

The white wires should be the grounded wire returns for the circuits unless they are identified by color tape to be hot line side of power.

Be careful of the grounded side of circuit, can shock or kill, treat all wires as being energised. If you are not sure, use a electrical tester,
or get help.

SOURCE: I lost my Leviton 6230M 30 mins timer installation sheet.

Switch has 2 black wires. One black is hot wire. One black is wire going to fan. Turn off power. Remove wires from switch and separate. Turn power back on. Using ordinary tester, test each black wire to bare copper ground wire. Only one of the black wires will test hot. The other black wire goes to fan.
Timer black wire connects to black hot
Timer blue wire connects to black wire going to fan
Timer white wire connects to white neutral (in absence of white neutral, connect Timer white wire to bare ground)
Timer green connects to bare ground wire

Fan speed control on 2 way circuit


1) Guessing you have 3-way switch where 2 different switches control same Load (light, fan, motor). Unknown wiring, and unknown if fan and light are wired separately.

2) Google search for 3-way fan switch shows Leviton IPF05 with simple straight-forward wiring. Link below has instruction manual, and Live chat button located to right of LEVITON
http://www.leviton.com/OA_HTML/ProductDetail.jsp?partnumber=IPF05-1LX&section=47082&minisite=10251

3) It appears that the Leviton device must replace Line side switch.

4) Uncertain if this device also controls fan since the wiring is so simple.

I have two of these switches and they both are operating incorrectly. I use them to control bathroom fans in two separate bathrooms, but they both act the same. That is, when I push one of the time...


Leviton countdown timers have additional wire that powers internal electronics.
Leviton timers have red-black-white-green wires (or blue-black-white-green wires)

1) Regular single pole switch has 2 insulated wires. One of these wires is Hot from breaker, and the other goes to Load (fan)
2) Timer green wire connects to bare ground as you know.
3) Hot from breaker connects to timer black wire.
4) Load wire connects to timer red (or blue) wire.

5) Located in back of box are white wires that are twisted together and covered with wire nut.
These are Neutral wires. Connect timer white to these wires. This will power timer electronics.
6) If box does not have Neutral wires described above, then connect timer white to bare ground along with timer green wire.

7) Turn power ON and try timer countdown.
If timer does not work, then reverse timer red and timer black wire.

8) If box does not have neutral wires: Image on link below shows similar Intermatic timer:
Image applies ONLY when Neutral is not available.

I have the unit wired and it does not wotk.I have black to black,red to red green to ground and white to white,any thoughts? Thank you


Electrician test wiring before connecting anything.
First of all, you don't mention what type of switch was replaced.

1) Leviton 6230 countdown timer is made to replace single-pole light switch only.
Single pole is where 1 switch controls the Load (light fan motor)

Your wiring sounds like 3-way switch.
3-way is where 2 switches control same Load.
For example a hallway usually has 3-way switches.

To confirm. If old switch has 1 dark screw, 2 brass screws, and 1 green screw, then that is 3-way switch. Use Leviton LTB15, LTB30, LTB60, LTB02, LTB12 countdown timer for 3-way.

2) If old switch has 2 brass screws and 1 green screw then that is single-pole switch.

3) If you are replacing single-pole switch, here are testing & wiring instructions for Leviton timer.
Remove device and separate wires for testing.
Use ordinary two wire tester.
Tape tester leads to wood sticks so hands are away from power.
Do not untwist wires that were twisted together before you started.
Turn on power.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Hot wire. This wire will connect to timer black wire.
Now you know Hot wire.
Test Hot wire to each of the other wires, excluding bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on neutral. Timer white wire connects to Neutral wire.
If box does not contain Neutral wire, then timer white wire connects to bare ground.

Timer green wire connects to bare ground wire.
Timer red wire connects to wire going to Load.

If I want the TIMER 6230M to stay in ON position for longer than 30 minutes, how can I make it works like a toggle ON/OFF switch?


The Leviton 6230 is a countdown timer with maximum time of 30 minutes.
The other times are 15minutes, 5minutes and 3minutes.
The timer has a manual override.
Push the bottom button and the timer works like a switch.

Leviton also make the 6260 countdown ... with 10-20-30-60minute times.

My leviton timer is flashing on the 10 minute timer. What could be causing this?


Try turning off power to the timer for a few minutes, and then turn back on.

If an electronic countdown timer stops working, there are no repairs, and you need another one. Fortunately, inexpensive replacements are available at Lowes, Home Depot and Walmart.
Be sure to mark your wires, or take photo, before removing old timer so new wires connect without confusion.

Bathroom fan


Hi there might be a couple of issues. The first one how old is your fan, if it is an older model motor maybe running down? Try setting your switch on the fan at high. Also the polarity of wiring at the switch or the fan might be swaped. This means the white and balck wires may not be in the right polarity.
