Mom, it sounds like a timer issue, not advancing. If your model number ends in RFS0, your part number would be 131436800. Cost of the timer is around 90.00. This is not a hard repair. Catriver..post back.

I do not know how to set timer have tork 1011 24 hour timer


Open following link to identify timer, with information for trippers and replacement clock motor:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101

The clock motor rotates analog timer dial clockwise as time passes.
Trippers on the dial move lever that rotates a cam that opens and closes electric circuit.
To set current time, manually rotate timer dial until current time lines up with the word Timer located near the 5 o'clock position.
If the dial is not rotating oe keeping good time, then clock motor is bad.
If trippers don't move the lever, then trippers are worn down.

I want to reset the timer for hours of on-off for out water heater but can't figure out how to push the little white teeth in or out. Model is 265-1.


1) Open following link to read about re-circulation systems:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-recirculation-system.html

2) Image below show typical FM1 analog timer dial with pins:
Move pins with fingernail or small tool.
To test if pins need to be moved in or out, set pins each direction and manually rotate dial clockwise and listen when pump turns on-off.
How timer operates: clock motor rotates dial continually, pins on dial move lever that turns circuit on-off.
To set current time, manually rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Some timers have a selector switch: move switch to Auto, or Timer, or Timer ON. Again you can manually rotate dial and check which setting is correct.

My water heater needed to be restarted and my comfort recirculation system isn't working now.I"m hoping it is just the timer. I need to reset the timer and I don't know how. I can't find my manual....


Grundfos timer and pump operate by plugging into ordinary 120V outlet.

1) If outlet has power, then dial on timer should rotate.
If dial is not rotating, then check power to outlet.

2) If outlet has power, but timer is not rotating then timer has gone bad > if grundfos pump is working but timer is not working, you can buy cheap plug-in timer and use that as the timer.

3) If outlet has power and pump is not working, then manually rotate timer dial to see if pump will start.
If pump will not start, then you need a new grundfos.
There are no repair parts for these pumps, and nobody at Fixya has reported taking Grundfos apart and repairing it.
My Grundfos pump will not come apart.

4) Following link has links to Grundfos installation manual, website, product manuals, and contact.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-recirculation-system.html#Grundfos

5) To set timer: Grundfos timer dial has movable pins that are used to set on-off times.
When pins are pushed out, timer turns pump ON.

6) Rotate timer dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Dial rotates as time passes, and pins move a lever that turns pump on-off.

How do I work this timer? Model 59200. Does it work on any kind of lamp? Do I turn the lamp on? Tried it and didn't work, never turned the lamp off. Manual sheet not much help. Thanks for more info. Rita


Open following link to identify timer and see manual plus written programming steps:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59200

Lamp must be turned ON, and Bulb is good.
Raise and lower a few segments on the timer.
Plug timer into wall, and plug lamp into timer.
Manually rotate timer dial clockwise to watch lamp turn on-off.
Notice also that timer has switch located on top.
Move switch into one position and manually rotate dial again.
Move switch to other position and manually rotate dial again.
This will tell you how to set timer switch and segments.
To set current time, rotate dial until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Dial rotates as time passes, and segments click a switch back and forth that turns circuit on-off.

Hpm 24 hr manual timer , i dont know how to get it working


HPM 24 hour timer has segments located around dial.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#HPM-dial

http://waterheatertimer.org/images/hpm-24hr-timer-500.jpg

Segments appear to move up or down.
Other similar timers: Segments down = Load ON; Segments up = Load OFF
Press several segments down.
Plug timer into wall.
Plug 240Volt load into timer.
Manually rotate timer dial clockwise to see if segments down turn load on or off.

There is also a 2-position slide-switch located on top of timer.
Move slide switch to each position to see which is need for timer to turn load on-off.

After positions are defined, push segments down or leave segments up for times you want load to turn on.
Rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Timer dial rotates as time passes, and segments move a plastic lever that turns load on and off

I was looking at GE timers at Home Depot tonight.
Timer ON is correct setting.
Segments up should be lights off.
You lights turn ON with outlet on, so lamp, bulb and electricity are good.

Troubleshoot your timer:
What happens when you manually rotate the dial clockwise?
Do lights turn on and off at scheduled times?
Move override switch both directions and rotate dial manually with switch in each position.
Are the segments pulled all the way up?
If lights do not respond when dial is rotated manually, and segments are all the way up, then timer is broken.
If lights turn on-off with manual rotation, then check if clock motor is rotating dial.
If dial is not rotating, then timer is broken.

The way these timers work is this:
Timer clock with plastic gears rotates dial.
Dial rotates as time passes.
Plastic arm rides along outside edge of segments. See photo below.
When segment is pulled up, plastic arm clicks inward via spring action.
The moving arm opens electrical contacts that turn lights OFF.
If dial is not rotating, or the spring is worn out, or the plastic arm broken off, or the contacts fused together, or override wire is disconnected, then timer is broken.

I test these timers.
4-6% arrive defective, and most last 1 or 2 seasons and then they break.
But they are priced low and easily replaced.

Your timer could be broken.

But let's review.
Override set atTimer on > correct
When override is moved other direction, then lamp turns on.
Lamp fixture is turned on
Bulb is good
Receptacle has power
You tied timer on different lamp at a different receptacle.
Dial rotates with passing time, which indicates that clock motor is functioning
Dial does not get stuck during rotation, and makes complete 24 hour circuit in 24 hours, indicating that clock motor is not weak.

Segments up or down for timer functions >> here's what to do: pull up some segments. Manually rotate timer dial clockwise.
The lights will turn on-off as you rotate dial manually.
That will confirm if up or down is correct position of segments.

If everything above checks out, timer should work.
If timer is defective, exchange for another one.

I test these timers and 4-6% arrive defective. Most last one or two seasons and then they quit.
Some last years.
But timers today are priced low enough.

Power is good going into the timer but the timer is not running. I am wondering if there is a fuse that needs to be changed or a reset switch? The timer has been replaced in the last year.


If I understand correctly, you have T-104 240V timer.
Timer was running fine before, and recently stopped working.
If this is not your timer, add a comment.

1) Click manual override back and forth to see if Load turns on-off.
If Load does not turn on-off, then check power at Load.
Timer has 5 terminals A 1 2 3 4
Check terminals 2 and 4 for 240Volts when Load is ON

2) Check terminals 1 and 3 for 240Volts to make sure timer has full 240V and breaker is not tripped OFF on one leg. If timer has 120V, it appears to have voltage, but clock will not rotate and Load will not turn on-off. Check breaker for 240V across both screws.

3) Is dial rotating?
If dial is not rotating or is stuck in place, replace 208-277V clock motor.
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Time-Clock-Motor-1PNK2?Pid=search

4) If dial is rotating, but trippers don't flip on-off lever, then trippers may be worn down. Buy new trippers.

5) How to wire T104 timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

How timer works
:
Clock motor rotates dial.
ON-OFF trippers on dial contact lever.
ON tripper pushes lever one direction.
OFF tripper pushes lever other direction.
Lever moves electrical contacts together, or pulls contacts apart.
When lever moves on-off, manual override lever also snaps back and forth with audible clicking sound.

I having troble with my t103 timer to turn the lights on manualy i try to set the timer but for some reason doesn't work what can i do ???


T103 Intermatic timer has 120Volt clock motor and can control 120V or 240V Loads.
Wiring for timer is shown on following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T103

Troubleshoot T103:
1) Manual override is working correctly, and it snaps crisp and clean, and Load turns on-and-off.
That means timer is basically good.

2) Next look to see if yellow dial is rotating.
If dial is not rotating, then 120Volt clock motor needs to be replaced.
Take photo of wiring and mark wires before starting.
Remove two white wires connected to screw terminals 1 and A.
Snap timer mechanism out of box, clock motor is on back of timer.
Use small star screwdriver to remove old clock motor.
Reattach white wires on terminals 1 and A, tighten screws very tight.
Reset current time: lift and rotate dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.
Grainger sells 125V clock motor:
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Time-Clock-Motor-1PNK1?Pid=search

3) If dial is rotating, but gets stuck at certain times, or runs slow, then replace clock motor.

4) If dial is rotating, and trippers are attached to dial, but timer does not turn ON, then trippers are worn down and need to be replaced.
Grainger sells the T103 trippers
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Timer-Tripper-2E054?Pid=search

5) How Intermatic mechanical timers work:
Dial with ON-OFF trippers is rotated by clock motor.
Trippers on dial contact ON-OFF lever.
ON tripper pushes lever one direction.
OFF tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
Lever moves electrical contacts on back of timer that turn Load ON-OFF.
Manual override lever clicks back and forth with each ON-OFF action.
