Reverse wires on terminals 3 and 4

1) GP24 appears to be 24-Hour version of Greenbrook T100 series mechanical timer, with Grasslin analog time dial.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Green-brook-T100_CInstructions.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-set-timers.html

2) If clock is not rotating, then probably your wires are reversed.
Reverse wires on terminals 3 and 4.

3) Power from Mains, and wire to Load each have 2 wires.
Hot live from Mains connects to terminal 3
Neutral from mai9ns connects to terminal 1
Neutral going to load connects to terminal 1
Hot going to load connects to terminal 4

SOURCE: clock does not turn on

make sure the small white wires coming from the clock itself are installed on the "line" side of the terminals, those power the clock. If not, the switch will power the pump but the clock will not run.

SOURCE: T101 R Clock will not turn

The "Line" is the power source. The "load" is the device that is being powered.

typically the green wire is the ground wire. I strongly urge you to verify your assumption that is is the common wire. If the green is indeed the ground, and it gets hooked up to common, you will be energizing the cabinet of the unit and posing a serious shock hazzard.

Your curcuit will be as follows.

The power source "Line" will have wires going to the timer. (hooked to the "line" terminals on the timer.)the timer then is supplying the power to the pool pump, and we will reffer to it as the "line".

The two black wires from the pump would be hooked up to the "load" side of the timer.

Typically they would be labled line 1 and line 2 or "L1" and "L2"

If yours are not labled so, describe exactly what terminals you have in detail in both the pump and the timer.

SOURCE: Timer stopped working Manual mode turns things

Usually the timer motor is bad when that happens. You can purchase a new timer motor here (or at a similar website):
http://www.aplussupply.com/intermatic/timer.htm
If you don't want to mess with replacing the timer motor can can buy another time clock and as long as your existing enclosure is still in good shape, just swap out the guts.

SOURCE: tork 1104 is wired 120 vac. hot wire connected to

The clock isn't working because the Tork 1104 clock motor requires 240 volts. Jumping the 120 volts over from terminal L to terminal 1 doesn't make it 240 volts. You need another 120 volt leg (180 degrees out of phase) to do that. The Tork 1103 timer is what you need, or change the 1104 clock motor to a 120 volt.

Why would my Amana washer not do anything but fill up with water. Nothing will function at all on all the cycles but the fill. It doesn't even click on the timer when you try to set to any setting exc


Hi Kirby
First... Caution
Because your dealing with water & electricity it can be lethal to fiddle around inside. That said...
Washing machines are controlled by a master timer unit, usually mechanical, but rotated by an AC Clock motor. If the timer is not getting voltages to the various Switches around the "timer unit" or "clock motor" then the individual selected functions won't work.
Manually Rotating to a particular function then Activating the On/Off Push/Pull switch should start things happening even if timer motor is dead. So
If your OK with AC electrical goods then open it up.
Connection wires may have fallen off or something simple. A multimeter is your best friend here. Look for the big rotary clock behind the main control dial. Listen for the clock motor running. The main Push in & out Button is the On / Off switch. Check that its got AC on the input wire & switches across to the other wire when the knob is pushed in / out. This may be the problem...

You can always call an appliance repair technician!
Good Luck

How to install intermatic PB913N66


Open following link to identify timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Intermatic-PB800-PB900-timers.pdf

The timer has 4 terminal connections.
2 terminal connections are for the clock motor, and 2 terminals are switched just like ordinary light switch.
See how to connect terminal ends to electrical wire by crimping:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Terminals.html

Which 2 terminals are for clock, and which 2 are for switch?
Test across both sets of terminals using continuity tester or multimeter set to read ohms.
Then rotate override knob to next position, and repeat test on both sets of terminals.
The set of terminals that changed when override was rotated are the switch terminals.
The other set of terminals are the clock terminals.

Connect 120Volt Hot and neutral to the clock terminals. Turn on power and make sure clock dial rotates.
Next: the cable going to Load has 2 wires: Black and white.
Cut the black wire. Crimp terminal connections on each end. Connect each end of black wire to the switch terminals.

To set timer for on-off operation, open following link:

Where can I find the manual for the Intermatic Incorporated Timer, Spst-125V 24Hr Mechanical 2 On/Off - PB913N84


There is no manual specific to the PB800-900 series timers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#PB
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Intermatic-PB800-PB900-timers.pdf

Timer uses 107TTN222 ON tripper and 107TN221 OFF tripper.
Push trippers onto dial at times you want timer to turn on-off.
Rotate dial until current time lines up with arrowhead located in center of timer dial.
images show that timer has override knob that can be rotated.
Timer has 4 terminal connections. 2 connections are for 120Volt clock motor, and 2 terminals are the switch for turning Load on-off.
Black hot wire and white neutral wire connect to clock terminals.
Switch terminals are dry.
Dry terminals mean they have no power when wires are connected to clock motor.
The switch terminals wire just like ordinary light switch: Power connects to one of the terminals, and wire to Load connects to other terminal. Neutral wire does not connect to switch terminals, just like wiring an ordinary light switch.
Offhand I do not know which set of terminals is for clock motor.
Use continuity tester on each set of terminals.
Clock terminals will show continuity at all times, no matter which position override knob is set.
Switch terminals will show continuity with override knob in one position, but not the other position.

We have installed GM40 time. which control shaft on / off cycle i.e 4 hours on / 2 off. i checked selector switch postion, i.e continuous on (upper position) and continuous off (lower position) in this...


I have GM40 timer sitting in front of me.
I cannot understand your question because I do not know what the 'control shaft' is.
If you mean the black-colored FM1 clock dial with captive trippers, then this dial is supposed to rotate continually as long as timer has power.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/FM-1-Grasslin-Intermatic-20.jpg

Grasslin/Intermatic GM40 page
http://www.intermatic.com/products/grasslin/electromechanical%20time%20switches/multi-voltage%20time%20switches.aspx
The manual says quote:
With the manual switch in the middle position, the GM40 is in automatic mode and will switch at the programmed times. In the upper position "I", the load is permanently ON. In the lower position, "O", the load is permanently OFF. End quote.
In any switch position, the FM1 clock dial will continually rotate.

If your Load does not turn on-and-off according to the trippers set on FM1 clock dial, then 1) wiring is suspect or 2) if dip switches are not correctly set before applying voltage, and timer could be damaged.

The timer arrives with dip switches pre-set for 277Volts.

You can also manually rotate clock dial clockwise to observe when the load turns on-off.

Add a comment and give more information.
I would like to know what the 'control shaft' is, and what voltage you are using, and what dips switch setting you have, and which wires are connected to each terminal.

I have an intermatic WH40 timer that works great when it is "On". However, once the unit encounters the "Off tripper", it turns the hot water power off, but the timer dial no longer...


If this is new installation, you have Load wires and Breaker wires reversed.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-WH40.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/WH40-water-heater-circuit-5.jpg


Hot wires from breaker connect to terminals 1 and 3 ... notice also there are small white wires connected to terminals 1 and 3.
Small white wires go to 240Volt clock motor located on back of mechanism, so these terminals have to be Hot all the time so clock motor is ON all the time >> thus hot wires from breaker connect to same terminals that have small white wires.

Load wires to water heater connect to terminals 2 and 4

Reverse your wires and things should work fine.

I having troble with my t103 timer to turn the lights on manualy i try to set the timer but for some reason doesn't work what can i do ???


T103 Intermatic timer has 120Volt clock motor and can control 120V or 240V Loads.
Wiring for timer is shown on following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T103

Troubleshoot T103:
1) Manual override is working correctly, and it snaps crisp and clean, and Load turns on-and-off.
That means timer is basically good.

2) Next look to see if yellow dial is rotating.
If dial is not rotating, then 120Volt clock motor needs to be replaced.
Take photo of wiring and mark wires before starting.
Remove two white wires connected to screw terminals 1 and A.
Snap timer mechanism out of box, clock motor is on back of timer.
Use small star screwdriver to remove old clock motor.
Reattach white wires on terminals 1 and A, tighten screws very tight.
Reset current time: lift and rotate dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.
Grainger sells 125V clock motor:
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Time-Clock-Motor-1PNK1?Pid=search

3) If dial is rotating, but gets stuck at certain times, or runs slow, then replace clock motor.

4) If dial is rotating, and trippers are attached to dial, but timer does not turn ON, then trippers are worn down and need to be replaced.
Grainger sells the T103 trippers
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Timer-Tripper-2E054?Pid=search

5) How Intermatic mechanical timers work:
Dial with ON-OFF trippers is rotated by clock motor.
Trippers on dial contact ON-OFF lever.
ON tripper pushes lever one direction.
OFF tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
Lever moves electrical contacts on back of timer that turn Load ON-OFF.
Manual override lever clicks back and forth with each ON-OFF action.

How to wire intermatic T-1906 for a 220 well pump?


http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T1906-Intermatic-timer.html

T1906 is 240V timer with 240V clock motor
There are 4 terminals: NO NC COM Clock
NO terminal (normally open) turns ON when the timer turns on
NC terminal (normally closed) is ON at all times except when timer turns on.

You want your pump connected to the NO terminal so it turns ON when timer turns on.

How to wire:
240V has 2 Hots from breaker box > these connect to COM and Clock terminals (either color wire to either terminal)
Your pump has 2 wires > these wires connect to NO and Clock terminals (either color wire to either terminal)
The bare copper wires connect together and connect to green screw.

If your wires from breaker and pump are reversed, the manual override will work, but the timer clock will not rotate dial. If this is the case, then switch NO and COM wires.

Im installing a TORK 1103.. Im hooking this timer up to 4 outlets.. I have a black, a white, a red and a copper wire.. my problem is I have to turn the timer on and off manually.. The clock is not...


Tork 1103 is mechanical timer with 125V 3 watt clock motor
Dial on front face rotates when clock has voltage
Dark and light colored pins connected to dial, and turn timer on and off
There is removable brass bar that connects poles L and 1

You have 4 wires:
Red >>> I'm not sure about this wire, is this Hot wire coming from tandem breaker?
Black >>> this is Hot wire coming from tandem breaker
White >>> this is Neutral wire
Bare ground

Test wires:
Please test Black and Red to bare ground to see if these are both Hot
Test Hots to white to confirm this is Neutral
Solution ASSUMES black and red are both Hot, and white is Neutral

You have 2 problems:
Prob 1) Clock does not rotate dial: so clock is bad -or- clock not wired correctly
Prob 2) You are able to control 4 plugs using manual override, which means load wires are correct
However, you want to wire timer 'without red wire' (which is confusing, since red wires are connected to outlets)

ef19106.jpg
Solution Prob 1:
1) The diagram show the N or Neutral wire is connected to Unmarked pole on timer
2) Black Hot has to be connected to pole L
3) Unmarked pole and pole L must be wired with 120V as shown before dial will rotate
4) If wiring is correct and dial does not rotate, then clock motor is bad
5) If dial rotates, check outer rim of dial to see if you have dark and light pins for on-off functions
6) Notice that all the Neutrals connect on Unmarked pole

Solution Prob2:
Are you saying that the household wiring extends beyond the 4 plugs, so when you turn off the 4 plugs, it also turns off more plugs and switches farther down the line? If so, you need to wire plugs with separate hot wire.
Let me review features on timer which might help:
1) There is removable brass bar between poles L and 1
2) If brass bar is removed, then you need Hot wires on both L and 1... but you can jumper between L and 1 with short black wire
3) If brass bar is there, then one Hot connected to either L or 1 will power both clock and load.
4) Timer is DPST double pole single throw ... so you can control 2 different loads ... one load connects to Unmarked pole and pole X ... another load connects to Unmarked pole and pole 2

If brass bar is removed:
Jumper between poles L and 1 ... so only one Hot wire is used on your timer.

Below shows jumper on poles L & 1: hot to load is on pole 2
