VPT24-1P

Newbie

VPT24-1P  Replacing a mechanical light timer which connected solely to a hot lead and the load lead (for lighting only).  Wired the new timer per diagram - hot box lead to black; box load lead to red; box neutral to white.  No LED, no lights, no manual overide on lights.  Timer programming works according to the instructions.  Have taken all the connections apart and redone twice.  Same problem.  Thoughts?

    Frank,

     

    The VPT24 requires a dedicated neutral (typically white) wire.  Running a ground to the neutral will not allow this device to operate.  If there is no neutral to tap off of, the switch will not work for your operation.  Please let me know if there's anything else I can help with, or you can call our support team at 800.824.3005 to source an alternative product that may fit your needs.
