Connect 120Volts to white clock motor leads.

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

Blow out timer with compressed air.
Turn off power and spray highly flammable vapor from WD40 can onto gears.
If dial rotates and keeps good time, then buy new 156T1978A trippers

T101 timer comes stock with WG1570 120-480 volt clock motor.
Clock motor typically connects to terminals A and 1.
Hot black wire connects to terminal 1. Neutral white connects to terminal A.
Load wires: Black to terminal 2, and White to terminal A
This timer can be converted to other voltages by changing clock motor, such as 208-277Volt using WG1573. Or adapted to European, SE Asian 230 Volt 50Hz timer by installing WH1574.

SOURCE: I just installed a new intermatic T101 timer, the

By chance did you connect both the incoming and outgoing white (neutral) wires together without also connecting them to the "A" terminal? If so, untwist them and connect both of them under the "A" terminal. The timing motor will not work if the "A" terminal is not connected to a neutral.
With the circuit energized from the breaker, you should be able to read 120 volts from the "A" terminal to the #1 terminal.
Also, check to make sure the yellow dial is pushed in and set to the correct time.
Otherwise the timer is defective and a return to the store is in order.

The wiring for the T101 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

Could be bad timer motor. You can replace these easily. Be sure timer motor wires are on the same terminals that incomming line wires are connected to. You can find parts and info at www.intermatic.com

SOURCE: New intermatic T101 timer problem - timer is not

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:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

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.

On my t101 timer the lights come on a said time by never turn off.the time on the clock is always wrong even when i reset the correct time.


Thank you for including model number of timer.

1) If T101 timer worked correctly before, and suddenly stopped working, then clock motor is suspect.
Order WG1570 clock motor and buy extra trippers also:
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi

2) If this is new installation, then wiring is suspect.
Line wires come from circuit breaker.
Load wires go to lights.

Not keeping correct time


You posted under Paragon 4001-00 120Volt SPST timer

1) If timer is not keeping correct time, generally you need to buy new clock motor.
However Paragon is no longer making timers and parts, except for defrost timers.
4001-00 is not defrost timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#Paragon4000

2) You probably need to replace timer
Intermatic cross reference shows T101 timer is correct replacement.
http://www.intermatic.com/customer%20service/competitive%20cross%20reference.aspx

3) Amazon sells T101 for $43.
This price is a lot lower than trying to find somebody who has specific Paragon clock motor
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-T101-Hour-Dial-Timer/dp/B00002N5FN

4) Grainger and many other places sell T100 series replacement trippers and motors.
No worry about defunct product

5) Wiring for T101 appears below:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

Cross-over wiring is as follows:
Paragon terminal 1 goes to T101 terminal 1
Paragon terminal 2 goes to T101 terminal 2
Paragon terminal 3 goes to T101 terminal A

If timer is not functioning, add a comment.

Grainger sells 125V clock motor and tripper for T100 series timers.

If manual override does not turn Load ON, and the lever snaps crisp and clean, then check electric circuit. Check if load is operable.
If override does not snap crisp and clean, then timer may be worn out.
If dial does not rotate, replace clock motor.
If dial rotates but does not click override back and forth, then replace trippers.

How T101 works:
Lift and rotate dial until current time lines up with silver pointer
Clock motor rotates dial.
ON-OFF trippers attached outer edge of dial contact a lever.
ON tripper pushes lever one direction.
Off tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
Lever opens and closes electrical contacts.
Lever also pushes manual override lever back and forth with audible click.

Hey there, I have a Tork 1101 time switch. I actually have 2 right next to each other for different controls. I wired both of them and I know they're wired correctly. One works fine and i have no...


It sounds like the clock motor has gone bad, which is why the trippers cause the wheel to stall.
Frontier lighting sells the clock motor for 43$:
http://www.frontierlighting.com/product.jsp?part=10431&process=search&show=&ID=,Photo.Cells...Time.Controls,Replacement.Motors

Why one of the timers works fine and the other habitually fails is a mystery. You might use a circuit analyzer or test the load. Try switching loads to other timer.

Since the Tork 1101 clock motor sells for $43, I suggest T-101 as crossover product in Intermatic.

My Intermatic timer is not working. I replaced the WG1573-10D motor but still it does not work. The manual override works so the power supply is ok. Any suggestions welcome.


Your question doesn't provide enough information.

You have 240Volt T104 Intermatic timer?
A) WG1573 is for 240 volt timer. If you have T101 or T103 timer, it takes 125V clock motor.
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Time-Clock-Motor-1PNK1?Pid=search

B) This is new installation? and clock motor only worked when override was ON, so you bought new clock motor. But actual problem is that wires from Load and Breaker are reversed.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

C) Your timer worked fine in past years, but dial stopped rotating so you bought new clock motor?
You replaced clock motor.
Manual override works.

--And then your information ends.
Does clock motor work? Does the dial turn? Are your on-off trippers on the dial?
Are tripper worn down?
Buy new trippers.
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Timer-Tripper-2E054?Pid=search

If clock motor does not work, and circuit is 240Volts, then I suspect you connected clock motor to wrong terminals>? Clock motor connects to terminals 1 and 3.

My intermatic model T104 was not activating. I bought a new one yesterday but sill not activating. Howcan I prove the unti when it has two white cable only. Please advise asap. Thanks


T104 is 240V timer with 240V clock motor.
-This timer will not work for 120V circuits.
-Test your two wires for 240V.
-If your load (lights, motor etc) is 120V then you need the T101 timer.

Confusion about cables
When you say 2 white cables, does each cable have a black and white line?
If you have two cables with black and white lines, then one comes from breaker box, and the other goes to load ( water heater, motor, lights etc.)

Timer does not activate setting wheel. Stays on or off all the time.


1) If wheel is not turning, then replace motor
http://www.aplussupply.com/intermatic/timermotors.htm
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/wwg/search.shtml?searchQuery=Wh40&op=search&Ntt=Wh40&N=0&sst=subset
There are numbers printed on clock motor. Also look inside door to see model number of timer. If you have a T101 or T103, T104 the T100 motor will work.

2) If manual override is not working, then replace whole timer.

3) You can buy same timer, and then swap insides
without replacing box. For example if you have T101R, the R stands for rain-tight box. Buy T101 and swap insides. Keep in mind T103 and T104 and T101 are not interchangeable due to wiring differences.

Once T101 Timer Shuts Off will not turn back on


you have the hot and load reversed. the power source should connect to terminal 1. the wire going on to the pool pump should be hooked to terminal 2.

the clock motor is powered off terminal 1 and A is the neutral.

what u have done is hooked the power source to #2 and the load to #1, simply switch them and everything should be fine, here is a link to the wiring diagram for the timer.
