If your timer is not turning off the pump its probably wired incorrectly. Check the wires on the back of timer as it should work the same as a regular light switch. They may be reversed.

Intermittent Intermatic Pool Timer T40003RT3 The pool timer is 220v but only one 110v 20amp breaker in the breaker box to the pool equipment and when it is off the pump will not run in manual mode.

http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-control-centers-and-manuals.html#RT3

RT3 series has T104 240 volt timer -or- T103 120 volt timer, -plus- low voltage transformer for pool light.
The circuit breaker can be used for transformer, or another outlet or nearby light etc, or it can be used for a T103 120 volt timer.
To trace the wire back to breaker box.... open you main panel and start turning off breakers one at a time and label the panel.
See if you have single breaker or double breaker supplying power to pool equipment.

What position is lever on intermatic pool timer t104p3 for timer to work?


Lever automatically moves back and forth as trippers pass.
Move lever to ON position, move to the right.
If timer dial is not rotating, then check wiring, or replace clock motor:
If timer worked before and stopped working, but dial still rotates, the trippers are worn down, replace trippers:

Can't get timer to work. Wires R red, blue,green. Is red hot, blue neutral?


You should've fixed your Intermatic timer for $20 with new clock motor or trippers.

GE 15306 is 120Volt timer.
You probably have 240Volt power to pump.

Copy following links to help solve problem, and repair the Intermatic timer so you can return the GE for refund at Home Depot.

My Intermatic EJ351C timer just stopped working. I can't turn the lights on manualy and the red light will not go on at all. Is it possible the timer broke?


1) Download manual:
http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/files/intermatic/products/instructions/timers/ej351c%20-%20english.ashx

2) The timer could be bad. EJ351 has 1 year limited warranty, which is industry standard.

3) Reset timer: move the control lever to the OFF-CLEAR position for about 20 seconds. The red indicator light will go off and any previous time settings will be cleared from memory. And then reprogram timer using instructions.

4) If clearing programs does not restore timer function, then buy new timer.

We have the intermatic timer Model EJ351 and when I go to set the timer at the beginning it does not flash. It is when I start from off to on. Mary Ann


Mary Ann:

It appears that it will start flashing when you move from off to on. Here are the directions from the web site.

Move the control lever to the OFF-CLEAR position for about

20 seconds. The red indicator light will go off and any previous

time settings will be cleared from memory.

Move the control lever to the ON position. The Red indicator

light will start flashing.

Rotate the time dial clockwise at least one click, stopping at

the half hour nearest to the present time.

NOTE: During programming, be careful not to press the

dial while turning it. If you press the dial, you will accidentally

set a wrong time.

Press the dial once to set the present time. The Red indicator

light will go off.

Rotate the time dial clockwise to the first desired ON time.

The Red light will pulse momentarily with each click.

Press the dial once to enter the ON time. The light controlled

by the switch timer will turn ON.

Rotate the time dial clockwise to the desired OFF time.

Press the dial once to enter the OFF time. The light controlled

by the switch timer will turn OFF.

Repeat Steps 5-8 for each additional ON/OFF setting.

My model t12404r will not turn the pump off. Even if I manually move the switch to the off position, the pump keeps running. The only way to stop the pump is at the breaker box. The other timer in the...


I don't know if you have a 240V pump and 120V cleaner.
Or if both are 120V

T10000 series manual has troubleshooting
http://www.polytecpools.com/images/pdf/intermatic_t10000r.pdf

I specialize in timers.
If the manual override will not work and the circuit cannot be stopped by the timer:
Then the timer is bad.

To check for sure:
When pool pump is OFF, use tester and check voltage across terminals 1 and 2 on pump side
When cleaner is OFF, use tester and check voltage across terminals 1 and 2 on cleaner side

What test results show:
The cleaner side test across 1 and 2 should show no voltage when timer is OFF
The pump side test across 1 and 2 should also show no voltage when timer is OFF

If the pump side test across 1 and 2 shows voltage all the time, then the timer is broken.
There are no replacement parts for the internal on-off mechanism.

Add a comment if you need help wiring your new timer

You have what is called a 2-channel timer.
A single-channel timer can operate 2 or more Loads (pump, cleaner), but the Loads turn on-and-off at the same time.
A 2-channel timer has a clock (or digital program in the case of digital timers) so each Load turns on-and-off with a different schedule.

As a general rule, 2-channel timers are more expensive.
To avoid the higher price, you can replace a two channel timer with 2 ordinary timers.
Let me offer a replacement strategy that might save you money.
Keep the existing timer for the cleaner.
a) Buy Intermatic T-104R weatherproof timer if you have 240V pool pump.
b) Buy Intermatic T-101R weatherproof timer if you have 120V pool pump.
Here is a resource for the Intermatic timer I am suggesting:
The webpage has links to sellers, it has manuals and it has wiring diagrams for the do-it-yourself-er

Intermatic ej351, i ned the instructions for resetting the timer. to turn it on at 630pm and off at 100am pleae


1) Use this procedure to automatically program, letting switch timer "record" ON/OFF activities over 24-hour period.
-Move control lever to OFF-CLEAR for about
20 seconds. Red indicator light goes off and previous
time settings are cleared.
-Move control lever to ON position. Red indicator
light starts flashing.
-At 6:30pm, manually press dial 'on' >>> then at 1:00am manually press dial 'off'
-At the end of 24-hour period, switch timer is programmed and Red indicator light will stay ON, indicating
switch timer is in AUTOMATIC mode.
2) Or you can manually program times using instructions from page 1 of manual:
