Answer: 
The timer needs to be wired with the current going the correct direction.
That is because the timer needs to have electricity even when the lights are off. If you have the hot wires on the wrong leads then the timer works when the lights are on but not when they are off.
Solution: simply switch the way you presently have the wires and it should be fine. Not the green ground but the black and white. The

I think the timer is okay, you just have the red wire connected to the wrong black wire. Try switching the red-to-black wire and see is that helps. Remember, the wires in your box should be two black, one white and one green. The wires from your timer should be one white, one black, one red and one green.

i already bought a timer from a local hardware store, it had three wires black red and white. after looking around online it seems that the timer will not function without the white wire. the problem is that there are only two wires in the box, i attached one to the red wire of the timer and the other to the black wire of the timer, but the timer only functions as a light switch and the timer portion doesn't function. is there a way to attach the white wire to make the timer i have work? do i have to buy a different type of timer (please dont tell me battery powered :( )? or do i need to call an electrician to install more wiring? please help thank you have a good weekend/day/night

I’ve used Intermatic (model EJ351) timers to control my front & back door lights for over a decade. I purchased them at Home Depot, but HD no longer carries them so I bought a GE basic timer when one of the Intermatics died. The GE package says that it will replace a single-pole switch, but that is not necessarily true for all applications -- like mine, for example. If the switch to be replaced has only two wires in the box (i.e., the wires to/from the controlled light), the GE will not work because it also requires a hot and a neutral to power its timer motor. The Intermatic apparently powers itself by current trickling through the controlled light, so only needs the to/from wires. The Intermatic also has a “variable on/off” feature which shifts the times slightly on each cycle to give the house a “lived-in” look. Since I do not have the extra hot/neutral wires in the switch box, I ended up returning the GE to HD and buying an Intermatic online for about $16. I wish HD would resume carrying the Intermatic EJ351 -- it is much more versatile. Read Less

Hello danny boy, I’m Newf from the Home Depot’s how-to Community. Thank you for your question.
I think that you have already figured this one out. The white wire on this timer is necessary because the timer needs to use a small amount of current to operate. Without the white wire there is no complete circuit for the timer, although the switch part would still work. The only other way to supply power to the timer would be those models with batteries that you don’t want me to tell you about, and I understand why.
The good news is that since you have two black wires in the box, you probably also have a tubular conduit system rather than a cable. This would make pulling a new white wire from the load box relatively easy.
I hope this helps,
Newf.

Once the pins are in place you can manually rotate the wheel to see if the lights come on and off. SOme timers use specific pins (colored) and so if your lights come on and do not Read More

To set current time, rotate the dial until the arrow in the center points to the current time.
Start with all tabs at the center of the dial. Push all the tabs out for the time period you want the lights on and at the center for times off.

Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 71 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Quiet programmable unit that is easy to install and use. Easy to install. Mounts to any standard single-width electrical outlet. Three factory-prepped color-coded wires are easily attached to the existing house wiring using wire nuts included in the package. Silent operation is achieved by a synchronous motor that maintains perfect time with the 60 Hz household power. Easily programmed in half-hour increments using self-contained pins which can be slid toward the outside edge of the dial where they snap in place. To begin, rotate the dial clockwise to the correct current time. Then, slide out a pin at the desired start time. Next, slide out another pin for the desired stop time. Now slide out all the intervening pins in between the start and stop points to create an operating time zone. If multiple time zones are required, they can be created in the same manner. March 19, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Timer failures Too many failures. Rotating wheel jams up and keeps light either "on" or "off" all the time. May 28, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by in wall timer simple timer and simple wiring , since i'm an electrician it was simple enough for me, but the product doesn't work . set it up to turn my lights on at 5:00 pm and turn off at midnite, well for the last three days that i have installed this product, it turn on my lights at the set time of 5:00pm but would not turn off at the set time of midnite. so for the last three days i had to turn off the lights each monrning before leavin the house, the timer works but it doesn't have enough power to turn off the lights at midnite, have to turn off the lights myself , i would not recommend this product , what ever happen to intermatic?

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Noisy! Works great. But it's so noisy. I've had it installed for one month and I'm going to remove it. Easy to program. Too bad about the noise. March 23, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Totally disappointing product Bought this to replace a too complicated digital programmable timer and had it installed. Like many other users report, manual on off switch works but the timer does not advance. This is in a three switch setup - a tight fit as others have noted, both width for install and projection with cover plate. Thought maybe dial was binding up on plate and tried two things - shaving down backside seams of cover plate to allow closer fit and greater protrusion of dial from front of plate, and also loosening the screw holding dial on, for same reason. Neither helped and it still does not advance. Kudos to the guy who took his apart and figured out there is a gear meshing internal design problem. Like other users, I will be taking this back and looking for another brand. Wish I had read this first. October 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works if you follow instructions I did a basic install to run a light in our barn on the timer. Used 14-2 (w/ground). Wire all white together. Wire all ground together. Wire one black to black on timer. Wire the other black to red on timer. Be sure to toggle out tabs for the entire time period you want light to operate on timer dial. Don't just pull one tab ... it will only operate light for short time. Pull all tabs for time you want light to be on. If timer does not work, simply re-wire black and red (i.e., red to other black, and black to other black). It's getting the red to black combination correct that causes the problems with the timer not operating, despite the fact you can turn the lights on and off by rotating the dial. July 9, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly what I wanted/needed. I have become increasingly uncomfortable with not having lights on (porch lights/yard lights) when I come home after dark. And - since I want to keep them on all night - I didn't like forgetting to turn them off first thing in the morning....and I found that kept happening. These timers are the type you install "behind" your light switch - and you set them for the time you want them to come on and turn off. The time is easily adjustable (to accommodate shorter and longer days) and it's very reassuring to know that "someone" is catching the lights if I should forget. October 9, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by In complete instructions After I installed the first timer,the lights would work but the timer did not. I got a new one assuming the first was defective (the original one I got had been opened, maybe returned by someone else?). The second one did not work also. I went to another home store and bought a third one similar to the one I got at Home Depot. The timers were the same company and very similar, however the instructions with this one point out that the timer had to be set up with a specific configuration of the hot wire and the load wire. The one from home depot did not have that at all. Once I switched the load and hot the timer worked fine. So the one from Ace Hardware worked and the Home Depot one did not. Lots of trouble for an instruction issue. January 10, 2012
