SOURCE: new woods timer ..i cannot figure out the correct

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.

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.

If the pump is very hot, unplug it.

I have a Paragon model 4004-20 Water Heater Timer and I moved the TIME arrow. Now the water heater is not working at all. I am thinking of just restoring full time power to the water heater. I did not...

You are not supposed to move the time arrow.

4000 series time arrow is pointed at 8:00.
To set current time, lift and rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with pointer.
Put X2772 trippers on dial at times you want water heater to turn on.
Minimum on-off with Paragon 4000 is 1-1/2 hours because trippers are so fat.
You can replace 4000 timer with electronic timer and control exact on-off down to the minute:

Electric water heater heats about 21 gallons of water per hour.
Shower uses 6-9 gallons hot water.
Bath uses 10-12 gallons hot water.
Average water heater that is not connected to timer, runs about 3 hours a day. You can make timer pay off by keeping time schedule lower than 3 hours.

I cant figure out how to set it.

The manual has step by step instructions.
Plug timer into wall to recharge battery.
If battery will not charge, the timer is no good.

Press reset to clear memory.
Select am/pm format by holding clock button.
Set current time by holding clock button down while pressing hour, and then minute and then day

To program timer:
Press program button once and program1 ON displays
Press minute button to set program1ON minutes
Press hour to set program1ON hour
Press days to choose the day or group of days for program1 ON

Press program button again and program1 OFF displays
Press minute to set program1OFF minutes
Press hour to set program1 OFF hour
Press days to choose same days for OFF that you chose for ON

Press program button and program2 ON displays

To exit programming, press clock

A conflict in programming will cause timer not to work as expected
Make a schedule before programming to avoid program conflicts

Can i use the timer for a water headter to trun on and off

Paragon 8145-20 is a 240V defrost timer
It is probably not best choice for water heater timer
Timer initiates defrost cycles each 4 hours.

A water heater timer should have more scheduling options.
-For example estimates show average run-time for water heater is 3 hours per day, depending on incoming water temperature, thermostat setting, and number of gallons used.
-To save money using water heater timer, you have to schedule times carefully so water heater runs less than 3 hours per day.
-Now your average electric water heater heats about 20 gallons per hour.
-Average shower uses 4-9 gallons hot water, so water heater needs to run 15-30 minutes (15 summer, 30 winter)
-Average bath uses 12-15 gallons hot water so water heater runs 45-60 minutes
-But lets say you run water heater for 1 hour and make 20 gallons of hot water. Then you take a shower, expecting hot water to remain in tank.
-Here's the problem ... cold water entered the tank to replace the shower water ... and the new cold water is cooling the rest of the tank.
-So a timer means scheduling hot water to match shower and bath events. For example taking shower and bath in immediate succession.
-Or set the timer for each individual hot water event ... for example set timer for 1/2 hour for shower, and later timer turns on 1 hour for bath, or 1-1/2 hr for 2 baths, etc
-> The flexible programming described above is not a characteristic of defrost timers.
I suggest Intermatic WH-31 240V or Intermatic T-104 240V or GE 15207. These are mechanical repeat-24 hour timers with manual override where each day has same schedule.
Digital programmable timers like Intermatic EH40 offer 7-day, 40 event programming. Weekends and weekdays can be different.
To see several box-type timers:
