Insure the motor wires are hooked to the line in and nuetral posts of the timer. If they are and the timer can be triggered manually then the motor is burned out. If the timer cannot be triggered manually check the breakers at your electrcal panel to see if the one of them may be tripped that supplies the power to the timer.

Good Luck

My Intermatic T104P3 produces a very low whirring sound - constantly when power is on. Is this a problem? It is working quite well.


Sound is coming from 3 watt clock motor located on back of timer mechanism.
It is not a problem unless clock motor is running slow.
You can turn power off, remove mechanism from enclosure using thumb spring located top inside box. Spray WD-40 on clock gears and see if sound stops.
WD40 vapor is highly flammable accelerant so don't spray on hot surface or live electric connections.
WG1573 clock motor can be purchased separately.

I suggest 120Volt HB113C Intermatic appliance timer for heavy motor loads like dehumidifier:

http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#appliance

Dehumidifier has watt rating on nameplate.
Dehudifier has a compressor or motor load.
Many timers today are not rated for 1500Watt and 1800Watt motor load of dehumidifier.
For example Woods 59377 timer can handle 1875 watts, but timer is for incandescent only.
Woods 59366 timer is rated incandescent only. Your motor might burn up timer and be a fire hazard.

Open following link for Intermatic troubleshoot checklist.

Once timer checks out, you need to check circuit going to water heater.
Water heater might be the problem.
Remove trippers from timer dial and set override lever to ON.

Clock dial doesn't move


You posted under Intermatic outdoor sprinkler timer.

Intermatic clock motors can be replaced.
Clock motor has identifying numbers printed on motor.
Tip mechanism out of box using thumb spring located inside box at top.

Google search for that motor number, for example WG1573 is 240V clock motor for T104 timers.

I'm in need of an inexpensive timer, preferably mounted in a wallswitchbox, which has two output circuits, one from a n/o and one n/c contact. Can you recommend a model? Thank you


9b115a6.jpg
Instruction sheet
Sales sheet

Deihl spa-and-pool timer shows a 15A DPST NC NO timer in sales sheet
Wiring diagrams show DPST.
However most 880's sold are 125V SPST.
Deihl makes 125 V, 24V and 240V models ... but I don't have product sheet that shows all models

I don't see any NO NC wall-timers while looking at: Woods, GE, Intermatic, Aube, Hagar, Leviton, Lutron, Paragon, Pass and Seymour, Swilight, Sylvania, Timex, Tork, UPM, Utilitec

Box timers by Intermatic offer NO NC:
T1900 series
T171

Ordinary 3-way switch is NC NO
Ordinary 4-way switch is NC NO can be wired to control 2 independent circuits

There are heavy load NO NC contactors (relays)
Item 2cg37
You can wire ordinary wall timer to control the contactor

I want to connect a single phase 24 amp kiln under my waterproved pergola. What electrical work needs to be done and how much would it cost approxmatly?


That kiln requires a 30 amp circuit, minimum. 24 amps x 125%= 30 amps per National Electric Code (NEC).

Without more info, I'll need to make a few assumptions. For the sake of estimating the cost I'll present the following scenario:

1...The distance from your electric panel to the pergola is approximately 100 feet.

2...The circuit will be underground. I'll assume that you will be able to hire someone to dig an 18 inch deep trench from the electric panel to the pergoda for $10 hr. While this should only take 3 or 4 hrs, depending on soil conditions, it could take all day. So I'll assume $80 for this.

3...This will be a 240 volt, 30 amp circuit (see why below).

4...Since you posted under the Intermatic T171, and since that is a 120 volt timer, that the kiln is 120 volts.

5...Unless the pergoda is fully enclosed, NEC still requires a weatherproof installation.

For starters, I don't recommend a 120 volt kiln. Most people I've known who had a kiln always seemed to want a bigger one ;-) Again, I'll do the estimate for a 240 volt, 30 amp kiln, as the price difference compared to a 120 volt circuit is about the same.

Also, I strongly recommend using 3/4 inch PVC conduit as opposed to 1/2 inch PVC or UF (direct burial) cable. 3/4 inch conduit doesn't cost much more than 1/2 conduit and will allow you to install wire up to #6. UF cable, in my opinion, is out of the question because if you ever decide that you want a larger kiln the direct buried UF cable is _not_ easily replaceable. A conduit and wire installation is about the same price as UF anyway.

Here's the breakdown (US dollars):

$ 10 - 30 amp, 2-pole circuit breaker
120 - 300 feet of #10 THWN COPPER wire (40 cents a foot)
20 - 1 bundle (100 feet) 3/4 inch PVC conduit
10 - 3/4 inch PVC elbows, fittings, straps
20 - Weatherproof box and weatherproof cover
+15 - 30 amp receptacle
______
$195
+100 - 2 hrs labor @ $50 hr. (possibly 3 hrs.)
______
$295
+80 - labor for trench
______
$375
+140 - Intermatic T172R (weatherproof) 240 volt timer
______
$515

Other considerations are that, if indeed, the circuit is 100 feet, you should consider using a #8 THWN COPPER wire to account for voltage drop (add $60, @ 60 cents a foot) Using a #10 wire at that distance may not allow the kiln to get to the desired temperature.

If you are anticipating things like lights, 120 volt receptacles, fans and such, the best way to do all that is to install a subpanel at the pergoda.

That should get you in the ball park as far as price. Of course, you can make adjustments accordingly. Remember that prices can vary greatly depending upon geographic location. Also, if you call a contractor for an estimate, _after_ they give you the price, _then_ ask how much they will knock off if you dig the trench.

A contractor price of $600 would not be unreasonable.

Hope this helps.
