GE Digital Timer
Hello, trying to replace an old timer with a new digital timer for an outside post light.
The wiring in the box is old. I have two black wires and 1 green.
One black wire has a solid copper inner.. I assume this to be the hot/live main.
My digital timer has 4 wires.. black, white, red, green. I've connected the black from the timer to the hot main, the red to the other black and the white to the green.
When I press the manaul override on the light the light flashes on then shuts off. I tried reversing the two black wires but nothing came on then.
