To set timer, lift and rotate dial clockwise until current time on dial lines up with silver pointer.
If dial is lagging or falling behind, then replace clock motor.

How do I set my raintight intermatic timer


1) You posted under Intermatic T-100 series timer.
To set current time, lift and rotate dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.
For timer to operate, add on-off trippers to edge of dial at times you want Load to operate.

2) For information about wiring:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

3) Timer not working: If timer dial is not rotating or is not keeping time, order clock motor.
If dial operates, but trippers don't click lever, then order extra trippers.

Don't know what is it used for,and how it operates?I don't have any instructions for it.


You posted under T101 timer.
Most box timers have model number and instructions pasted on inside of door.
Instructions can seems a foreign language sometimes.

If your timer is different than T101, then add a comment with timer number.
I have extensive files on timers.

Box timers are generally used for heavy amperage loads like outdoor lights, swimming pool pumps, water heaters, parking lot lights and lighted outdoor signs.
They are surface mounted near breaker box, or in attic or basement, or garage.
Box timers are used in schools to ring bells, and inside factories to run processes and fans.
Some are complicated electronic devices used to control machines with one second precision.
Mechanical box timers are noisy when turning on-off, so are generally not installed in living area of house.

T101 timer is least complicated of any timer.
It is used for ordinary household 120V circuit.
Timer has 120Volt clock motor, and controls 120Volt circuit.
For example 120Volt water heater, or 120V grow lights, or aquarium, or any application up to 2 horsepower, for example timer can be located inside garage to control outdoor lights.
T101R is raintight outdoor box, with rubber gasket on door that seals tight when closed.
Raintight boxes are installed outdoors to operate 120Volt spas and pool pumps.
When box timer is rated for indoor, there is no rubber gasket on door, and that box is called NEMA 1 enclosure.
My local Lowes sells T101 T103 T104 > and each is for slightly different purpose and each wires differently.
Link below shows wiring and manuals for T100 series timers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

Here's how T100 series timer works:
Lift and rotate yellow dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.
Clock motor rotates dial as time passes.
Clock motors are accurate for years, but current time has to be reset after power outage.
ON-OFF trippers are placed on outer edge of dial.
Trippers push a lever, and lever turns circuit on-and-off.
ON tripper pushes lever one direction.
OFF tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
Each time lever is pushed, manual-override lever clicks back and forth with audible sound.

Need manual to set timer


You posted under T-100 series outdoor timer
If you have different timer, add a comment with timer model number located inside cover.

T-104, T-103, T-101 timer manuals show on following page:
If your timer has R suffix, like T-101R, that means box is Raintight for outdoor use.
T-101R and T-101 mechanisms are identical except for box. T-101 box is indoor use.
Click model number and drop-down menu reveals link to manual
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/mechanical%20time%20switches/24%20hour%20dial.aspx

If you need simple wiring diagrams, and explanation for each T-104, T-103, T-101 timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

Here's how to set Intermatic T100 series timers:
Lift and rotate yellow dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.
Silver pointer is stationary at 6 o'clock position.
Put ON-OFF trippers on dial at times you want ON OFF functions.
Minimum on-off is 1 hour because of tripper width.
If timer is not working, add a comment and we'll troubleshoot.

These timers have replacement trippers and clock motors at Grainger
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi

How timer works:
Clock motor, located on back of mechanism, rotates yellow dial.
Trippers on dial push lever that turns power ON and OFF.
Off tripper pushes lever one direction.
ON tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
When lever is pushed, manual override lever clicks back and forth with audible click sound.

My automatic timer is not working.


You posted under Intermatic raintight timer.
Add a comment with your model and brand and I have extensive files on timers.

The best diagnostic is the manual override.
1) Click manual override and see if Load (lights, fan, motor) come on.
If manual override clicks on-and-off crisp and clean, but the lights do not come on, check your electric power.
If the manual override does not click crisp and clean, then the timer may be rusty, or timer may need to be replaced. Buy replacement timer and swap out timer mechanisms without changing the box.
If the manual override works fine, and Load turns on-and-off with manual override, then the clock or trippers are next suspect.

2) Check if the dial is turning as time passes.
If the dial is not turning, then the clock motor is bad and you can buy a new clock motor.
If dial is turning, and manual override turns Load on-and-off, then the tripper pins might be worn out, and you can buy new trippers.

3) To buy replacement parts: Timer door has model number of timer. Timer clock located on back of timer mechanism has identifying numbers. You can snap out the timer mechanism using metal spring locate top inside box.

My paragon timer4001-ov runs but will not trip on/ off trippers if this cannot be repaired what would be a good replacement for 120 volt supply


I don't see the 4001-ov in the Paragon spec sheet
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Paragon-4000-24hr-7000-7day.pdf

To test the general condition of your Paragon timer, use the manual override.
If the manual override works perfectly, then you may need new tripper pins.
The Paragon 4000 series uses X2772 tripper pin.
Google search Paragon X2772 tripper turns up prices of $9 for a pair of trippers

A simple 120V replacement timer is the Intermatic T-101
For outdoor, use the T-101R 'R' for raintight

Lowes usually has the T-101 on the store shelf and they sell the T-101R online

I have a 15 yr old tork 1101 pool timer. I misplaced the tripper pins the replacements P-47 dont fit. What do I do


1) Tork P47 tripper is correct tripper for 1101 timer.
Trippers are brass-colored and black-colored.
If they do not fit timer dial you might need new timer.
http://www.frontierlighting.com/find.jsp?a=1&ID=,Photo.Cells...Time.Controls,Replacement.Trippers

2) Buy new 120Volt indoor/non-weathertight Tork T1011
To identify timer for sure:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html

3) Google search Tork 1101 shows timer cost $83

4) Intermatic cross reference shows replacement is T-101 indoor/non-weathertight
Amaxon sells T101 for 43$:
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-T101-Hour-Dial-Timer/dp/B00002N5FN

5) Raintight/outdoor: Aplus and Lowes sell raintight outdoor T-101R for $71
http://www.lowes.com/pd_29405-251-T101RD89_0_

http://www.aplussupply.com/intermatic/timer.htm

6) Cross over wiring.
Tork terminal X is T101 terminal A
Tork terminal 1&L are T101 terminal 1
Tork terminal 2 is T101 terminal 2
