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

I think the timing device has failed.
Most of these devices come with 1 year limited warranty, so you can exchange for new one.
I usually buy new one, and then return old one as if it was just purchased.

I test timers.
One thing you can check: buy circuit analyzer at home center and plug into receptacle on same circuit.
If circuit is not clean, this will affect electronic devices and shorten lifespan, causing operation failure.
If there is a fault somewhere, you can use multimeter from home center and start at end of circuit and work back through each box and light fixture.

SOURCE: i need to install a

Hello,
It really is very simple to change a switch without having to call a contractor.
1) Make sure the power is off at the fuse box.
2) Take the switch cover off.
3) You will notice one screw on top an one one the bottom remove both.
3) Remove both wires, again make sure power is off.
4)You will notice on the switch there is a gold screw and a silver screw.
5) If both wires are black it does not matter which screw you hook them up to, If the wires are white and black then the black goes to the gold screw and the white goes to the silver. If for some reason they are both white then it does not matter which screw, just as if they were both back...... Its that simple.

If this is a new installation, I believe you have a Leviton dimmer instead of a timer. For example, Leviton countdown timers like the 6260 and 6230 have times printed on face, while the similar-looking Leviton dimmer has no times.
Look at instruction sheet that came with product and make sure it says 'timer' and not incandescent 'dimmer'

If this installation worked before and suddenly stopped, then timer has gone bad.
Use circuit analyzer and check nearby outlet to make sure line is clean. Ground faults and circuit noise can adversely affect electronic timers.

SOURCE: Have a ecolab dishwasher 480v line voltage, how do you wire a roof top exhaust fan 120v?

If you only have 480 available (which would be unusual) , you will need a transformer, 480 - 120. Otherwise just run a separate circuit from a nearby single phase panel. There must be one.

6161T timer switch LEDs just blink for the fan. The light works on the fan. The fan works on straight 120v.


Leviton 6161 is shown on Leviton as 500 watt incandescent-only 4-level dimmer that cannot control a fan.
If this is a ceiling fan and light, then search for fan light dimmer, or fan control,

Leviton 6200 series timer replaces single-pole switch. Will not work for 3-way or 4-way applications.
Timer has 4 wires: Blue, Black, White, Green
Timer Green to bare copper wire.
Timer Black to Hot wire from breaker.
Timer White to Neutral wire from breaker. Neutral wires are white wires that are twisted together and covered with wire nut pushed to back of box. If box does not have neutrals, connect Timer white to bare ground wire.
Timer Blue to Load wire.
If timer does not work, reverse Timer Black and Timer Blue.

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.

A Bryant 3 way independent rocker switch with red, black and white wires for 3 lights in bathroom one switch not working can i replace it with a Broan Nutone P66V three function control


397bfdd.jpgLeviton triple switch
fe442eb.jpgNutone P66V

Nutone looks like an ordinary three-switch combo being marketed as a bathroom 'fan switch.'
The screws on the device would tell the story.

Look at the Leviton screws:
The switch has dark-colored screw on one side >> the hot from breaker always connects to dark screws.
Other side of switch has 3 silver-colored screws, but these can be brass colored screws > the wires to fan light and heater connect to each of these screws.

Most likely the Nutone switch is identical to the Leviton
I say this because the descriptor on Amazon describes it as a 'fan' switch.
It's being marketed as a bathroom fan-light combo switch >>> so it looks like an ordinary three-combo switch

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.
