What's hot? What's not?


Picture this.

Wire #1 has a black/white and ground.
Wire #2 has a black/white and ground.
Wire # 3 has a black/white and ground.

Wire #1 is coming from GFI outlet.
Wire #2 is coming from vent fan in bathroom ceiling.
Wire #3 is coming from light over shower.

Need to hook all them to a timer switch that has one white wire, one black wire and one red wire. The switch is the GE single pole,auto shut-off timer indoor in wall 15069. It will handle both fan and light.

Thanks

Using a solid state timer in stead of a the mechanical above. I heard they last longer.

Picture this.

Wire #1 has a black/white and ground.
Wire #2 has a black/white and ground.
Wire # 3 has a black/white and ground.

Wire #1 is coming from GFI outlet.
Wire #2 is coming from vent fan in bathroom ceiling.
Wire #3 is coming from light over shower.

Need to hook all them to a timer switch that has one white wire, one black wire one blue wire and one green wire. The switch is the GE single pole, auto shut-off timer indoor in wall 15088. It will handle both fan and light.

The directions state:

Connect wires per wiring diagram as follows:

Black lead to circuit’s (Hot) line conductor.
Blue lead to circuit’s load conductor
White lead to circuits neutral conductor
Green conductor to ground


Thanks

Just follow joed's wiring, using the blue wire for the red wire.

Hook all whites including the time white together.
Hook the bare wires and the time green together.
Hook cable 1 (from panel) black wire to timer black.
Hok cable 2 and 3 blacks (light and fan) to timer blue.
