SOURCE: New intermatic T101 timer problem - timer is not

Manual override lever is good overall test of T101 120Volt timer.
T101 timer has 3 terminals: A 1 2

See wiring diagram on following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

Electricians test, they don't guess.
So test your wire:
Separate all wires for testing.
Use ordinary 2 prong tester.
Tape wood sticks to tester leads to keep hands away from power.
Stand on dry boards. Do not hold or touch anything metal.
Turn power ON.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Hot wire. 120V circuit has only 1 Hot wire. If you have 2 Hot wires, you might have 240Volt circuit and need T104 timer. If circuit has 1 Hot wire, then that Hot wire must connect to terminal 1.
If you have NO Hot wire, then check circuit breaker.
Hot wire is identified.
Now test Hot wire to all other wires, except bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Neutral wire. Neutral wire must connect to terminal A.
If you have NO Neutral wire, then additional wiring is needed, or circuit needs further testing to see what type of wiring you are working with.
Bare ground wires connect to green ground screw.

Notice there are small white wires also connected to terminals A and 1. These small white wires power the 120V clock motor. With Hot on terminal 1 and Neutral on terminal A, the clock motor will run, and yellow dial will rotate.

If timer dial does not rotate after connecting Hot ans Neutral, then test voltage across Hot and Neutral to make sure it reads 120V.

Your circuit should have 2 wires remaining.
These wires go to 120Volt load (fan, light, motor)
Connect these two wires to terminals A and 2.
Try manual override.
If Load turns ON-OFF, then timer is wired correctly.
If Load does NOT turn ON-OFF, then reverse Load wires on terminals A and 2.

Add a comment any time.

SOURCE: I have two 220 Intermatic

1) Order 240V T100 series clock motor.
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-Clock-Motor-Leads-WG433-20D/dp/B0031DOHLG

2) Order extra trippers too since they are designed to wear down so they don't damage tripper lever.
Put dab of white (bicycle) grease on the tripper lever.

3) Turn power off.
Mechanism snaps out using thumb-spring located inside box at top.
Clock motor is held with two star-screws. Buy bit at auto parts store.
Clock motor wires attach to terminals 1 and 3
Reattach terminal screws very tight against copper wire and make sure wire-insulation is not caught under screw clamp.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html
To re-set current time, lift and rotate dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.

4) See next generation of Intermatic pool timers that snap into same box.
New timer controls 3 separate circuits with different schedules for each circuit, so the single timer can replace both mechanical timers. Wiring is complicated, programming is complicated. I am still reading the manual, and it makes sense to me, so you can trust fixya to help in event that you replace your timers next ten years.

4001 0 timer c1878


Paragon no longer makes timers, except for commercial defrost series.
There is a cheap knock-off that looks like the old 4001, but I cannot find seller any longer and do not recommend.

Instead, order 120Volt Intermatic T101 timer to replace Paragon 4001.
Or order T101R for indoor-outdoor weather-tight enclosure
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#Paragon4000
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00002N5FN/?tag=waterheaterti-20
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000BVZB3E/?tag=waterheaterti-20

Paragon 4001 terminals are 1-2-3

Intermatic T101 terminals A-1-2
Paragon terminal 1 Hot goes to Intermatic terminal 1
Paragon terminal 2 Load goes to Intermatic terminal 2
Paragon terminal 3 Neutral goes to Intermatic terminal A

Intermatic makes replacement clock motors and trippers for T100 series, so this timer will last decades.

Tork also makes a line of mecanical timers sold through home depot under GE brand name:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15145
These are also good timers, but lighter construction than Intermatic T101.

My intermatic timer dial sticks on the last pin of the timer. It will turn my sprinklers on and go through all 4 zones, but then the clock will stick on the last pin. I have moved the pins and it stops...


The WG1573 240Volt clock motor has gotten weak and needs replacement:
Copy following links for part replacement and troubleshoot resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#T100
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-Intermatic-clock-motor.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-Intermatic-timer.html
Order new 156T1978 trippers also, since they are made of soft metal and designed to wear down so it saves wearing out timer.
Clean out timer with compressed air, and add bit of white grease to point where tripper meets on-off lever. Turn off power and spray bit of highly flammable WD40 to gears. use protective mask and do not breathe WD40 since it affects respiratory and circulatory system.
Remove trippers from dial, and use manual override lever until replacement clock motor arrives.

Can i change the model T101P3 timer from 110 to 220?


1) Yes. Change clock motor from WG1570 to WG1573
Wiring is same as T102 timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T102
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-Intermatic-clock-motor.html

2) If new pump motor is 2-speed, then converted T101P3 cannot handle 2-speed pump.
Use T106 timer, or T1906 timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#2-speed
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T1906-Intermatic-timer.html#pool

3) New T106 or T1906 timer mechanism will snap into T103P enclosure without changing boxes.
Any intermatic timer will snap into Intermatic enclosure.
Other brands of timer can adapt to Intermatic enclosure using Tork IAP adapter bracket.

I need replacement timer motors for T 103 Intermatic timers.Where can I order them from?


1) Copy fo0llowing links:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-Intermatic-clock-motor.html#clock
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#Hz

2) The suffix, -1 and -3 are not important.

3) WG733 is 208-277 Volt clock motor, normally found on sprinkler timer or T1900 series. WG430 is 120Volt clock motor normally found on T1400 series.

4) T103 timer is stock 120Volts, but can be changed into different voltage timer by changing clock motor.

Ti04 clock rotates and new trippers but doesn't turn on


You probably have T104 timer.
Clock rotates so power to timer motor is good. This means 240Volt breaker is good.
Use override lever and see if Load (light, fan, motor) turns on and off. If override does not turn Load on-off, then bypass timer and see if load works. Move wires from terminal 2 to terminal 1, and terminals 4 to terminal 3.
Did you order correct trippers?

My Intermatic T104P3 timer will not turn the pump on. The manual switch works and it does turn off, as set.


1) Manual switch is working, and that says electricity, circuit breaker, wiring, and pump are good.
If timer dial is rotating and keeping good time, then order new 156T1978A trippers.
If dial is not rotating, then order 240Volt WG1573 clock motor.

2) Open following links for troubleshoot walk-thru and replacement parts list.

The timer clock stopped working. I can only turn my pool pump on by the timer manually. Can it be repaired or do I need to purchase a new one?


1) You posted under T104 240Volt timer.
If I understand correctly the dial is not rotating, but manual override works fine.

2) Buy new T100 series WG1573 240V clock motor from Grainger
Also buy extra trippers since trippers wear down.
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi

3) Clock motor is located on back of timer mechanism.
Tip mechanism out by releasing thumb spring located top inside box.
Check motor number before ordering.
For example T103 timer looks the same as T104, but clock voltage is 120V.
Motor is held by 2 star screws > buy star screwdriver at auto parts or hardware.
On T104, the motor is connected to electric terminals 1 and 3.
T103, the motor is connected to terminals A and 1.

4) If you have different Intermatic clock motor, check links below:
