Installing Leviton decora timer
Thank you for allowing me to post here. I purchased a Leviton decora 15 minute digital count down timer, part number LBT15-1LZ. It has 5 wires: Black, white, red, green and a yellow/red. The yellow/red is used for a 3 way switch, which I do not have and am not worried about. I am attempting to hook this to the bathroom fan system. In the light/fan switch box there are 5 wires, a white and black to the main light switch, a white and black to the fan off on switch, and a bare copper ground. There are no other wires at all in the box. There are no capped off wires in the box either. I know that black goes to black, white to white and the green is to the ground system. Yes, I have read the instructions in all the languages that came with the switch. I only understood the English one. None of the wall boxes described matches mine. The LED's in the new timer do come on, but no fan power. So, to summarize, I have the HOT (black) line, and apparently a LOAD (white) line and nothing else. What do I do? Thank you. Jim B.
