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:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Boxtype.html
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:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-LW60418.html

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.

Paragon model 8141-00 defrost timer wont turn.


Is this a used timer?
8141-00 is 120 volt timer.
Is your 120 volt Hot wire on terminal 3 and Neutral on terminal X?
Test across 3 and x for 120 volt.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#defrost

Don't buy used defrost timers... they always look good when you inspect, but never work when connected... that's why the timer was taken out of service and sold as used timer.
Save the old trippers for use on new timer.

I need a tripper for my hot water heater timer... It is paragon model TC2 series A883-20. Can you advise?


I've read an expert here say that Paragon is out of *this* business now and that they are making defrost timers exclusively. I'm not so sure about this however. I would contact Paragon directly to learn if they have trippers available still for your timer.

If not - they may have suggestions for a direct replacement timer that would fit into your existing timer box. I have replaced several this way as it is preferable than removing cables, etc. when the exterior box itself is fine.

Good luck!

My hot water heater timer must be obsolete... It is paragon model TC2 series A883-20. It looks as though the trippers X2772 would work. Can you advise?


Paragon is no longer making timers and parts, except defrost timers.
I've seen X2772 trippers selling for $50-60

Can I suggest a replacement water heater timer:
Link below shows variety of water heater timers (including Paragon products, Intermatic, Tork, GE, Sylvania, Woods). Page has wiring diagrams and manuals.

Look at label on side of tank to see if heater is 120V or 240V

I need to get some trippers for my paragon hot water heater timer i believe it is a 4004-20....any suggestions where i might can purchase them....thanks bill


4000 series Paragon timer uses X2772 tripper
To check your model:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html

Midnight electric sells X2772 tripper
http://midlightelectric.com/firex/acatalog/FIREXPARAGONROBERTSHAW_X2772.html

That being said,
According to e-mail I got from Paragon last month, Paragon is no longer making timers or timer parts. Except for defrost timers. 4000 series is not a defrost timer.
This explains why some sellers of these trippers are asking $50 or more for $3 pair of trippers.

To change your timer to Intermatic.
Refer to Intermatic cross reference:

My water heater is leaking a lot. water comes from the down bellow. It started like three months ago but it is getting worst Do I need to replace it? how much it will cost a similar one?


It sounds like you need to replace it, Actual cost can very widrly depending on your location but I would say $350-400 is probably close. Plus installation unless you can do it yourself. Hope this helps. Thanks

I have a Paragon model 4004-20 Water Heater Timer and I moved the TIME arrow. Now the water heater is not working at all. I am thinking of just restoring full time power to the water heater. I did not...


You are not supposed to move the time arrow.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html

4000 series time arrow is pointed at 8:00.
geno_3245_97.jpg
To set current time, lift and rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with pointer.
Put X2772 trippers on dial at times you want water heater to turn on.
Minimum on-off with Paragon 4000 is 1-1/2 hours because trippers are so fat.
You can replace 4000 timer with electronic timer and control exact on-off down to the minute:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Boxtype.html

Electric water heater heats about 21 gallons of water per hour.
Shower uses 6-9 gallons hot water.
Bath uses 10-12 gallons hot water.
Average water heater that is not connected to timer, runs about 3 hours a day. You can make timer pay off by keeping time schedule lower than 3 hours.

Following link shows how to figure cost for electric water heater:

My paragon timer4001-ov runs but will not trip on/ off trippers if this cannot be repaired what would be a good replacement for 120 volt supply


I don't see the 4001-ov in the Paragon spec sheet
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Paragon-4000-24hr-7000-7day.pdf

To test the general condition of your Paragon timer, use the manual override.
If the manual override works perfectly, then you may need new tripper pins.
The Paragon 4000 series uses X2772 tripper pin.
Google search Paragon X2772 tripper turns up prices of $9 for a pair of trippers

A simple 120V replacement timer is the Intermatic T-101
For outdoor, use the T-101R 'R' for raintight

Lowes usually has the T-101 on the store shelf and they sell the T-101R online

Can i use the timer for a water headter to trun on and off


Paragon 8145-20 is a 240V defrost timer
It is probably not best choice for water heater timer
Timer initiates defrost cycles each 4 hours.

A water heater timer should have more scheduling options.
-For example estimates show average run-time for water heater is 3 hours per day, depending on incoming water temperature, thermostat setting, and number of gallons used.
-To save money using water heater timer, you have to schedule times carefully so water heater runs less than 3 hours per day.
-Now your average electric water heater heats about 20 gallons per hour.
-Average shower uses 4-9 gallons hot water, so water heater needs to run 15-30 minutes (15 summer, 30 winter)
-Average bath uses 12-15 gallons hot water so water heater runs 45-60 minutes
-But lets say you run water heater for 1 hour and make 20 gallons of hot water. Then you take a shower, expecting hot water to remain in tank.
-Here's the problem ... cold water entered the tank to replace the shower water ... and the new cold water is cooling the rest of the tank.
-So a timer means scheduling hot water to match shower and bath events. For example taking shower and bath in immediate succession.
-Or set the timer for each individual hot water event ... for example set timer for 1/2 hour for shower, and later timer turns on 1 hour for bath, or 1-1/2 hr for 2 baths, etc
-> The flexible programming described above is not a characteristic of defrost timers.
I suggest Intermatic WH-31 240V or Intermatic T-104 240V or GE 15207. These are mechanical repeat-24 hour timers with manual override where each day has same schedule.
Digital programmable timers like Intermatic EH40 offer 7-day, 40 event programming. Weekends and weekdays can be different.
To see several box-type timers:
