Defiant 15a In Wall Digital Timer (Bulbs Blinking)

I installed the defiant 15a in wall digital timer near our front door in order to control the porch light.  After getting everything wired up  (line/load/neutral/ground), i flipped the breaker and turned the toggle switch on.  The LED screen lit up and the time/day appeared as expected.  I manually turned the switch into the on/powered position and my porch lights would turn on/off/on/off in the a similar speed/ratio as a car turn signal.  Even though the package said it was CFL/LED compatible, I replaced the LED bulbs with standard bulbs to rule that out.  Again, with standard bulbs, the lights would just turn on and off continuously.  Thoughts?

That's the undocumented "deliver pizza here" feature. <lol>

Assuming you wired it correctly, the unit appears to be defective.  You might try switching line and load.  Otherwise, return it for a replacement.
