I will try and explain it to you, but bear with me, if it isn't exactly what I say, it is close. You have 220 volts coming into the timer from the fuse box, you should have 3 or 4 wires, one on them being bare, the ground, and one being white, neutral, the other 2 should be black and red, both hot, or both 110 volts each. Connect the bare wire to the green ground screw, the white wire should be connected to the Neutral , (silver) screw on the line side, It has to connect to the timer to run the clock. The other 2 will be connected to the line side, Now the wire to the water heater is the same make up, 3 or 4 wire, 2 hot, one neutral, one ground, Put the hot wires, black and red on the load side of the switch. 2 screws. The white wire connects to the silver screw on the load side, or it should anyway. and the ground of course connects to the ground screw. The hot wires should be on brass colored screws, but not always, as in the case of the word "load" written there, they might not be brass. Usually are. The timer needs the neutral to run, so don't just wire nut the white wires together to get it running because it won't . There should be 4 wires, all modern electric stuff is 4 wires now days. 220 volts. There might be a little white already in the box going to neutral for the clock, check it out. This should work.

1) Open following link to read about re-circulation systems:
2) Image below show typical FM1 analog timer dial with pins:
Move pins with fingernail or small tool.
To test if pins need to be moved in or out, set pins each direction and manually rotate dial clockwise and listen when pump turns on-off.
How timer operates: clock motor rotates dial continually, pins on dial move lever that turns circuit on-off.
To set current time, manually rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Some timers have a selector switch: move switch to Auto, or Timer, or Timer ON. Again you can manually rotate dial and check which setting is correct.
