Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be glad to assist you. What is it you don't understand?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There are three basic wires coming into the timer. Red, black, and white.
The shows the neutral the white wire going to the first terminal. It shows the hot wire the black wire going to the second terminal. I believe it shows the Redwire going to the fourth terminal. But I'm not sure if it also needs to have a jumper between one and four , I am just confused

OK, you have a 3 wire cable. What is it you are to control, what is the voltage? This timer will work on several voltages with a setting made.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The timer controls an exhaust fan in the ceiling of my staircase. 120v. There are no other switches for the fan.

T1- white wire
