Hello Linda, please first check to see that a breaker hasn't tripped and that the reason the timer isn't advancing isn't due to a lack of power at the timer.
If you have a test meter or a voltage detector, you can also use them to quickly check to see if you have power at the timer. If you don't have them, another way to very easily check to verify if you have a faulty timer motor is to use the manual "ON/OFF" lever located at the bottomn of the time wheel. Just simply flip the lever to the right and see if the device you have the timer connected to, operates or turns on.
If the device (lights, pool pump, vaccum, sprinkler system, etc.) does operate, then you have isolated the issue to a faulty timer motor and you can then obtain a new replacement motor, or replace the complete timer, whichever you prefer. Just be sure to disconnect the electric to the timer before undertaking any repairs and it's best to take some pictures of the wiring (use you camera phone or a digital camera) before you uninstall the existing timer.
To make the repair as easy as possible, try to get the same brand and model of timer, so it becomes a simple issue of removing and replacing the timer at the location and the wiring will still reach the connection points.
I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Here's the wiring diagram:
The wiring is as follows:
Connect _both_ the incoming and outgoing neutrals (white) wires to the "A" terminal. The incoming [(LINE) (hot) (from the breaker or source)] black wire is connected to the #1 terminal and the outgoing (LOAD) black wire is connected to the #2 terminal.
Both of the bare or green wires are twisted together along with a 6 inch or so pigtail using a red or yellow wire nut. The pigtail is then connected to the green "GR" screw on the enclosure.

Manual override lever is good overall test of T101 120Volt timer.
T101 timer has 3 terminals: A 1 2
See wiring diagram on following link:
Electricians test, they don't guess.
So test your wire:
Separate all wires for testing.
Use ordinary 2 prong tester.
Tape wood sticks to tester leads to keep hands away from power.
Stand on dry boards. Do not hold or touch anything metal.
Turn power ON.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Hot wire. 120V circuit has only 1 Hot wire. If you have 2 Hot wires, you might have 240Volt circuit and need T104 timer. If circuit has 1 Hot wire, then that Hot wire must connect to terminal 1.
If you have NO Hot wire, then check circuit breaker.
Hot wire is identified.
Now test Hot wire to all other wires, except bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Neutral wire. Neutral wire must connect to terminal A.
If you have NO Neutral wire, then additional wiring is needed, or circuit needs further testing to see what type of wiring you are working with.
Bare ground wires connect to green ground screw.
Notice there are small white wires also connected to terminals A and 1. These small white wires power the 120V clock motor. With Hot on terminal 1 and Neutral on terminal A, the clock motor will run, and yellow dial will rotate.
If timer dial does not rotate after connecting Hot ans Neutral, then test voltage across Hot and Neutral to make sure it reads 120V.
Your circuit should have 2 wires remaining.
These wires go to 120Volt load (fan, light, motor)
Connect these two wires to terminals A and 2.
Try manual override.
If Load turns ON-OFF, then timer is wired correctly.
If Load does NOT turn ON-OFF, then reverse Load wires on terminals A and 2.

SOURCE: Model T101 is not turning
The breaker is tripping?
Timer starts again when you flip breaker. It sounds like breaker is loose on the busbar, or there is loose wire that stops making contact, and then the timer turns off because no electricity is flowing to timer.
You have T101 timer.
When the timer is off next time: Stand on dry surface or dry boards. Open cover. Notice there is a plastic insulator that covers wiring terminals. On the insulator, each wiring terminal is marked: A 1 2. Remove plastic insulator that covers wiring terminals. Use ordinary electrical tester. Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from voltage. Test across terminals 1 and A for 120Volts (or 110, 115, 125V is all the same).
If there is no voltage, then circuit breaker and/or wire from circuit breaker is suspect.
