Hello , welcome to JA/Pearl, my name is***** and I will try to answer your electrical question today !

The first thing I need to help you is more information about this timer: model # , wiring information, etc.,.

It sounds like you either have your load wires connected to your line on accident, or the mechanism is in manual by pass mode on. Again, I need more information to continue helping you,thanks!
