Pool Timer Switch with Transformer Intermatic T10004RT3
The yellow timer wheel does not keep time. I can pull it towards me to set the time but it will not keep time on its own. So I have to manually turn the switch on and off. Is there a simple solution without having to replace the whole unit?
Re: Pool Timer Switch with Transformer Intermatic...
You need pull the interior out by pressing the clip on the top and pivoting it to release or removing the three small screws holding it in(depending on how old it is). I'm assuming it's an Intermatic brand by the yellow dial. The timer motor is bad. It will still run until it gets to the time clock trips, then it stops. It is held in by two small screws. The clock has a number in it for replacement. They run about $25. so it's cheaper than a whole clock, plus you dont have to change the whole thing. That's really all that can go bad on those. They are very dependable units.

The two wires are meant to be connected to the 120 volt source. The box or the papers with the transformer should tell you which two of the three wires provides the 12 volt output. If not connect the two wires to the 120V source - Be CAREFUL! - 120V is dangerous. Then try, one at a time, touching each of the three combinations of wires (1&2, 1&3, 2&3) to the contacts on a 12 V incandescent lamp (very bottom and threaded side) the 12V pair will give you the brightest light. The other two are 6v.
I can't address the 7 blade connector without more information. I suggest that you go to a place that sells trailer parts.
Not knowing anything about your trailer I don't know if a 2 amp (2000 ma) transformer will supply enough current to do the job.
I really don't understand why these lights are so failure prone and I usually return at least 8 out of 10 back to the store but I've installed a lot of them. If its Zenith brand the light may need to be reset by turning the power off at the switch or breaker for 1-2 min then back on. Then check the motion sensitivity dial if its maxed out turn it back and set it to 75% full also the photo eye may be getting light from the light making it think its daytime at night so try to reaim the photo eye if possible away from the light source that should fix most problems or 20% of them but if you still have problems return it to the store or ask for their advise. Hope this helps I've seen a lot of junk motion lights in my time they are troublesome at times.
I assume you mean a gfci recepticle? If this is the case you need to take the black wire from the house and pigtail it to go to both the recepticle (Black / Line) and one line side screw of the switch. The white wire from the house goes directly to the line/white side of the recepticle. Also pigtail the ground to go to the green screw on the recepticle, the green screw on the switch, the green wire from the motor, and the ground screw on whatever box you're using. When you purchase the switch make sure you get a two pole switch rated for at least the amperage of the motor. The red wire from the house and the black wire from the pigtailed black will go to the two line side screws of that switch. The red and black from the motor will go to the two screws on the load side of that switch. Make sure to ground everything properly being so close to water. The cover needs to be sealed securely and I recommend the cover that has the lever to activate the switch as opposed to the little door over the switch handle. Also make sure the two breakers supplying those two circuits have a handle that turns them both off at the same time.
