My parafon 4001-0 is coming on at the wrong time..i have one set of trippers and they are correctly, and now have turned off the breaker to shut the lgihts off. I don't know what to do

Is the dial rotating and keeping good time?
Are the X2772 trippers worn down?
Does the manual override lever turn load on-off.

You can buy replacement trippers online.
Otherwise if the clock dial is slow, then clock motor is bad, and you need to replace timer.

Replace the 4001-1 120Volt timer with Intermatic T101 timer.
Crossover wiring is as follows.
Paragon terminal 1 => Intermatic 1
Paragon 2 => Intermatic 2
Paragon 3 => Intermatic A
Intermatic timers are easily repairable and adaptable for various voltages and different countries by changing clock motors

4003-0s clock wont count does turn to show time or swicth on lights

1) If timer dial is not rotating, then the clock motor has gone bad.
New paragon clock motors are not sold anywhere I know about.

2) If dial rotates on time, but trippers don't work, then buy new X2772 trippers.

My model 1015-00RS timer comes on when it's set to be off at certain times, I push big dial down and it goes off, but then the next day it does the same thing, is there ajustment for fine tuning the...

I might not understand the problem correctly.

Open following link to identify timer:

From your post, the large dial on your timer can be pushed up and down?
Or are the trippers popping up?

The dial is supposed to rotate clockwise during regular operation, and can be manually rotated either direction to set current time, but dial should not move in and out or up and down.

If the trippers are worn, then they are built in. The problem is that Paragon is no longer making parts and does not support 1015 timers.
It's possible the trippers might be getting pushed up if the on-off mechanism needs lubrication.

May 2011, Patriot stills sells the 1015-00RS for $187
Intermatic 120Volt-480 Volt crossover product is T1975 (advantage is replaceable trippers, motor and switch)
Grainger sells T1975 for $126

Crossover wiring for 120Volt application:
All wires on Paragon 1 to Intermatic Clock
Paragon 2 to Intermatic Com
Paragon 5 to Intermatic NO
If there are wires on Paragon 6 to Intermatic NC

I have a Paragon 42013-20 timer, no longer manufactured. I need to find replacement trippers. Thanks for any assistance.

I cannot find a brochure showing specific paragon tripper numbers.

You have Paragon 42013-20 timer, DPST 10Amp 2Hp, Nema3 indoor-outdoor, 24 hour-timer with 48 trippers built into timer dial.
If trippers are worn out, you can possibly work-around by rotating dial 12 hours so fresh trippers can be accessed using same dial. The only difference is nighttime hours shown on clock face will now represent daytime hours.

Intermatic Cross reference shows replacement timer is T1976R

Difference between your paragon timer and suggested intermatic, it that Paragon throws both terminals at same time, while Intermatic has alternating NO NC terminals.

Have a paragon amf 4004-71 timer it runs constantly

Paragon 4004-71 is 240Volt timer

1) If your trippers are worn down, the timer will not turn on and off
Google search for X2772 trippers.
2) If your timer dial is not rotating, then timer clock motor is bad.

3) According to e-mail I received from Paragon Nov 2010, Paragon is no longer making timers and parts, except for their line of defrost timers.
4004-71 is not a defrost timer, so it is no longer being made according to Paragon representative.

4) To change timer brands: Intermatic cross reference shows Paragon 4004-71 can be replaced with Intermatic T-104 timer.
Intermatic cross reference link:
Lowes and Grainger and many other outlet sell T-104 240V timer.

5) How to wire T-104

Jst bought the house and there is a paragon 4100-0 light timer how do you reset the on-off times to approx. 5 pm on and 11 pm off ?

Paragon 4000 series timers are traditional electro-mechanical timers.
The dial rotates around like a clock as time passes
Black and silver tripper pins on attached to outer edge of dial.
Black tripper is Off
Silver tripper is ON
The tripper pins encounter a lever.
The On tripper pushes lever one direction, the Off tripper pushes lever opposite direction
Click manual override to switch lights by hand

To set current time, lift and rotate dial until current time lines up with black pointer.
Set your trippers on the dial next to the On and Off times you want.
Set silver tripper at 5:oo
Set black tripper at 11:oo
Minimum set time is 1 hour

How do i set timer to turn lights off and on

If I understand correctly, you have Intermatic electro-mechanical timer that has a yellow clock dial on front
And you want to set the timer to turn lights on and off
And your wiring is correct and the manual override turns the lights on-and-off correctly

To set timer:
Pull dial back toward you. Rotate clock dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.
On other brands of timer, you rotate dial until current time lines up with an arrow or the word 'time' located on lower right of clock dial
Timer has on-off trippers that fit outer edge of dial.
Intermatic trippers are labeled ON and OFF
Other brands of timer have dark and light-colored trippers >> I think the dark trippers on some brands are OFF

Place 'off' tripper when you want timer to turn off
Place 'on' tripper when you want timer to turn on
Turn on electricity and expect timer to run for 20 years
Dial has to be re-set to current time after power outage

We have an AMF Paragon 4001 timer for the light outside our building. The light goes on lately at the wrong time. We want it to be on at 7:00pm and off and 5:00am but it goes on at 12:00 at noon.

To set paragon timer: Pull large round dial straight out towards you, then rotate dial until correct time is lined up with stationary 'pointer' on front of dial
