Question about Paragon 1015-00RS Indoor Multi Operation Timer

Open Question

My Paragon Hot Water Heater Timer is making a sound.

I purchased a new Hot Water Heater 8 months ago from Lowes.
The Paragon Gray Hot Water Timer on the wall has been making
a sound for several hours today. What do you recommend?

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:
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.

Have been in our home for 25 years. Paragon 4001-00 is located at top of stairs, right outside of our bedroom, and we have no idea what it controls. No lights come on automatically, either outside or...


Find the circuit breaker that operates the timer.
Turn off that breaker.
Open the timer box.
Disconnect black wire from terminal 1 screw, and put wire nut or plastic tape over end of wire.
This will stop the timer, and then you can see what the timer is used for by watching what is not working.
Is the timer connected to a water heater?
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#4000

If timer is connected to water heater, move black wire that was connected to terminal 1, and connect it with wire on terminal 2. This will by-pass the timer, and the water heater will be on all the time.

If you need new timer that makes less noise, then buy electronic timer.
Paragon 4001-00 is simple 120V timer, so replace with Intermatic EH10 120V electronic timer.
Amazon sells EH10:
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-EH10-Electronic-Heater-Indoor/dp/B000GHIPOA

Please add a comment for more detailed information.
I have extensive knowledge of these timers, and can help.

I need trippers for parogon elect timer model # 4004-20


1) Paragon is no longer making timers or parts except defrost timers.
4004-20 240V 24-hour mechanical timer is not a defrost timer.

2) paragon 4000 series uses X2772 tripper.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#4000

3) Some sites still show the X2772 tripper.
Some sellers are seriously overcharging for the tripper.

4) If you want to buy new timer: Intermatic cross-reference guide shows T-104 240V 24 hour is correct replacement timer
http://www.intermatic.com/customer%20service/competitive%20cross%20reference.aspx

5) Amazon sells new T104 for 50$ which is cheaper than some folks are selling the paragon tripper:
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-T104-208-277-Volt-Mechanical-Switch/dp/tags-on-product/B000BQOX88

6) Change-over wiring from Paragon 4004-20 to T-104:
Hot wires from breakers. Paragon terminals 1 and 4. Intermatic terminals 1 and 3
Load wires. Paragon terminals 2 and 3. Intermatic terminals 2 and 4.

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.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Boxtype.html
Look at label on side of tank to see if heater is 120V or 240V

Have a paragon amf 4004-71 timer it runs constantly


Paragon 4004-71 is 240Volt timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#Paragon4000

1) If your trippers are worn down, the timer will not turn on and off
Google search for X2772 trippers.
2) If your timer dial is not rotating, then timer clock motor is bad.

3) According to e-mail I received from Paragon Nov 2010, Paragon is no longer making timers and parts, except for their line of defrost timers.
4004-71 is not a defrost timer, so it is no longer being made according to Paragon representative.

4) To change timer brands: Intermatic cross reference shows Paragon 4004-71 can be replaced with Intermatic T-104 timer.
Intermatic cross reference link:
http://www.intermatic.com/customer%20service/competitive%20cross%20reference.aspx
Lowes and Grainger and many other outlet sell T-104 240V timer.

5) How to wire T-104

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:
