Testimonial: "thank you very much for your responce. I had tryed the paragon website and it was very little help to me. I have found the correct trippers now."
SOURCE: I need trippers for an
I don't recognize Paragon TC-2.
Intermatic cross reference does not have that model number either.
Paragon sent e-mail last month saying they were no longer making timers and parts, except for defrost timers. Your water heater timer is not defrost timer.
Here is a wide selection of water heater timers, electro-mechanical and digital:
Manuals and wiring diagrams are shown for most products on page.
I recommend simple 240Volt Intermatic WH-40 for price and reliability. Drawback is minimum 1 hour on-off.
Or Intermatic T-101 for 120Volt heater or T-104 for 240Volt heaters sold at Lowes.
Intermatic trippers and motors are available and interchangeable, and are made of steel.
Some new timers are made with plastic parts:
GE 15207 is universal 120V 240V and sold at Home Depot.
Tork has new universal electro-mechanical timer, TU-40 for 120 and 240 applications
I use GE 15070 in-wall timer from Home Depot for my water heater because I change times frequently and try to shave every dollar:

SOURCE: I have a Utilitech
Open following link for Utilitec timer manual:
This timer should have a back-up capacitor so that programming is kept in memory during power outage.
Power outage is known cause of timer failure. When power turns on, the surge knocks out electronics.
People writing to fixya report electronic timers and electronic water heater controls stop working after power outage. Probably many other electronic devices are affected too, but that would be out of my specialty.
Troubleshoot says 'in case of operational failure, press reset button to clear all settings and restart.'
If timer has failed, buy another from Lowes and return defect in new package.
