Want to know how to install a d frost o matic model 8145


1) Copy following links for defrost timer resources, explanation, manual, general description and illustrations:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#defrost
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/8145-20-wiring-600.jpg

2) Generally:
Power wires connect to terminals 1 and N.

Heater turns ON during defrost cycle, so heater connects to NO terminal 3, and to terminal N

Refrigeration fan motor is OFF during defrost cycle, and ON during refrigeration cycle, so it connects to terminal 4, and to terminal N.

Limit switch, which is the pressure or temperature sensor, connects to to terminal X and to terminal N. When defrost cycle pressure or temperature reaches set point, the limit switch activates, and this causes 8145 timer to reset, and then defrost cycle ends.

I have a Paragon 8145-20 D-Frost-O Matic installed in on my walk-in freezer. The ice is accumulated on the fins of the freezer. Now it run for 11 minutes then stop for 3.5 minutes. I think the stop time...


1) Copy following links:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/8145-work-image.jpg
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#defrost

2) Typically the 8145-20 defrost cycle is time-initiated and starts when tripper pin located on outer part of dial passes the time-of-day point.
Defrost cycle terminates or ends when pressure or temperature switch activates. This is also called the cycle limit switch.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/8145-20-wiring-600.jpg

3) So your situation sounds like the pressure or temperature switch is not working correctly.

4) The 8145 timer also has 'time termination' setting. This red tripper is located on inner part of dial.
Usually the 'time termination' is used as back-up system if the pressure or temperature switch fails so that defrost cycle will not continue melting everything in freezer.

5) To solve problem until pressure-temperature switch is replaced, you can disconnect wire on terminal X, and then set 'time termination' for correct length of time by experimenting.

Timer not working on 4000 series, think its 4014 single pole single switch for pool pump. pump turns on when manually turn switch on but timer does not move. I feel the normal resistance and can move the...


1) If circuit breaker is not tripped or shorted, then timer clock motor has probably gone bad.

2) Some places still sell paragon timers, depending on model number.
But model number given is for 240Volt timer.

3) The clock motor is not available that I can find.
Paragon is no longer making the 4000 series timers or parts
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#4000

4) Model number given does not match wiring terminals shown in manual.
4014 is DPST 240Volt timer with 4 wiring terminals labeled 1 2 3 4.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Paragon-4000-series.pdf

5) Paragon 4000 series timer with terminals 1 2 3 is 120Volt timer.

6) Replace 120Volt timer with Intermatic T101 indoor timer or T101R outdoor timer.
Crossover wiring:
Paragon terminal 1 goes to Intermatic terminal 1
Paragon terminal 2 goes to Intermatic terminal 2
Paragon terminals 3 goes to Intermatic terminal A

My Paragon jw30 timer runs continuosly no matter what setting. Is there a fix?


1) There are no repair parts for JW series percent cycle timers.
Paragon is no longer making parts or timers, except defrost timers. JW is no defrost timer.
Open link below for copy of manual and help identify model number
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#JW

2) The JW is still being sold, so somebody must be making it.
Google search: JW cycle timers

3) A cycle timer is meant to cycle continuously, and the percentage on-off repeats over and over without stopping.
If you want to override timer, you can add a switch or another timer on electric line either before or after cycle timer.
This way you can control what hours the cycle program operates.

The micro switch is bad and i need a new one...where can this be purchased?


1) Paragon is no longer making timers and parts except defrost timers.
You posted under JW-30-00 series cycle timer, which is not a defrost timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#JW

2) JW timers are still sold on internet. Some Paragon timers are still being sold, and other manufacturers will continue making various Paragon products under new names.

3) Intermatic cross reference shows CT1000 is replacement for JW-30-20

I need to purchase 6 (six) more sets, 1 on and 1 off, trippers for the churches' 7 day timer. Do you need to know voltage of motor? The voltage it is switching is 240 volt.


1) You posted under paragon 7008-00 timer.
It is not necessary to know voltage of motor to order tripper

2) Model number of timer is usually located on inside door panel

3) Paragon is no longer making timers or parts.
Open following link to identify timer for sure:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#7000
http://waterheatertimer.org/Boxtype.html

4) Following link from Paragon gives links for folks who might still sell parts:
Expect some suppliers to overcharge for parts.
I've seen paragon trippers selling for $60.
http://portalgb.knowledgebase.net/display/1/index.aspx?c=15121&cpc=XobrEdQ5Lsnv624T2PBS4Exx6S5VyiL7gw3am4YYt6&cid=13013&cat=&catURL=&r=0.485034763813019

5) It might be easier to buy another time clock.
Refer to Intermatic Competitive cross reference chart.
http://www.intermatic.com/customer%20service/competitive%20cross%20reference.aspx
For example replacement for 7008-20 is Intermatic T7802B which is a 7-day, 40 amp 240V timer.
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/mechanical%20time%20switches/7%20day%2040%20amp.aspx

6) You are working for your church, probably as a volunteer.
I also volunteer several places in my community.
I have extensive files on timers and can help you choose and install a new timer if I know the model number.
Just add a comment to this post and I will answer if needed.

I have a paragon 8145-20 defrost timer. do you wire the compressor to the timer? I cant seem to find a wiring diagram on how to wire this correctly


Link below has wiring diagrams and wiring manuals for 240V 8145-20
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#defrost

I am not expert installing defrost timers.
According to information from Paragon, 8145 is for hot gas defrosting. 8140 series are time initiated, and pressure-or-temperature terminated.
Wiring diagram does not show compressor wired to timer.

The cycle works like this:
Timer is running but defrost is not switched ON.
Fan is ON.
Timer switches ON and activates defrost cycle.
Fan turns OFF. Hot gas valve turns ON for defrosting.
Cycle limit switch is temperature or pressure sensitive.
Cycle limit switch reaches trip point, timer switches OFF.
Hot gas valve turns OFF. Fan turns ON.
So fan is off during defrost cycle.
Hot gas valve turns ON when timer switches ON.
Timer is switched OFF by pressure-or-temperature limit switch.

I have a model 7005 outdoor timer ,brand new but no instructions to proceed with settings .Can you help me?

Paragon 7005 is a heavy duty 7-day mechanical timer that can handle 4 loads. It is DPST. One of two wiring diagrams applies to this timer:
1d6e8ec.jpgThe question is the the timer clock motor is 120V or 240V?

Manual for EC7000

Please re-post your questions as you start sorting out which timer you have.
Paragon is improving their site so there is less confusion over model numbers and functions. but information about the 7000 are still sketchy.

On a Paragon 8145-20 Defrost Timer, I know you land the refrigeration circuit on terminal 4, the heater on terminal 3, but what goes on terminal "X" and terminal "N"


Link below has 8145-20 wiring diagram:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#defrost

Terminal N is 2nd wire needed to complete circuit.
In 240V 8145-20, there are two hot wires.
One Hot connects to terminal 1, with jumper to terminal 2.
Second Hot connects to terminal N, and this will power the clock motor and timer.
Terminal X is for temperature or pressure termination switch.

Defrost cycle works like this:
Timer is running but switched OFF.
Refrigeration fan is ON.
Timer switches ON, defrost cycle begins.
Refrigeration fan turns OFF.
Hot gas defrost turns ON.
When temperature-or-pressure limit switch reaches trip point, it switches timer OFF.
Refrigeration fan turns ON again.
Hot gas defrost turns OFF.
