Timer is wonky, pump didn't work, now the spin is kaput

We have a mod; WISR309D TBWW Ser#ZH107243G. we are out here in west africa, and the timer is wrecked, I pulled apart the timer, the contacts were dirty, so I cleaned them, but I must have something out of time, as either the pump won't kick in to get rid of water, or the spin and agetate doesn't work. there is a little motor thing on the back to turn the rotary dial, but am not sure how to time that, also had trouble getting the contacts to work right, but I think that I solved that. Am suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Intermatic pool timer instructions

Timer is not identified. Do you have control center that controls heater, pump etc, or individual timer that controls pump?

Is this a new installation? Or did timer work before and stop working? What voltage are you working with?

I have a T10404R dual intermatic timer clock and I can only turn my pool pump on manually. The clock is working and it will turn off, but I can't get the ON pin to work despite replacing it with a new...

1) Troubleshoot walk-thru indicates that tripper is wrong, or timer mechanism is worn out:
Check that tripper is labeled ON, and compares similarly with old tripper, and is not worn down. Trippers are made of softer metal and designed to wear out before the timer mechanism wears out.

2) Buy new timer mechanism: If the new ON tripper does not push the on-off lever, then timer mechanism is probably worn out.
Buy new T104M mechanism, and change out with existing mechanism using thumb spring located top inside box.

3) How it works: The trippers rotate around on clock dial. Trippers come into contact with on-off lever, and trippers push lever.
On tripper pushes lever one direction. Off tripper pushes same lever other direction.
Each time the lever moves back and forth, the manual override also clicks with audible sound.
The lever moves a slide bar located on back of timer mechanism, and that action opens and closes electrical circuit.

4) Since any timer mechanism can fit into the T10404R control panel, you can also buy and install T104M210 timer mechanism with fireman's switch that turns off heater 20 minutes before turning off pool pump.
For 2-speed pool pump, the digital P1353 can also be installed, and this timer would replace both timing mechanisms in the T10404R. Non-electronic timers are more reliable.

My water heater needed to be restarted and my comfort recirculation system isn't working now.I"m hoping it is just the timer. I need to reset the timer and I don't know how. I can't find my manual....

Grundfos timer and pump operate by plugging into ordinary 120V outlet.

1) If outlet has power, then dial on timer should rotate.
If dial is not rotating, then check power to outlet.

2) If outlet has power, but timer is not rotating then timer has gone bad > if grundfos pump is working but timer is not working, you can buy cheap plug-in timer and use that as the timer.

3) If outlet has power and pump is not working, then manually rotate timer dial to see if pump will start.
If pump will not start, then you need a new grundfos.
There are no repair parts for these pumps, and nobody at Fixya has reported taking Grundfos apart and repairing it.
My Grundfos pump will not come apart.

4) Following link has links to Grundfos installation manual, website, product manuals, and contact.

5) To set timer: Grundfos timer dial has movable pins that are used to set on-off times.
When pins are pushed out, timer turns pump ON.

6) Rotate timer dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Dial rotates as time passes, and pins move a lever that turns pump on-off.

Tork timer "time clock motor"kaput...someone set

You posted under Tork 8601 timer:
I don't think that clock motor is sold separately.
New timer costs 115 at Chapman:

120Volt Tork clock motor that fits some models is sold at frontier for $43:,Photo.Cells...Time.Controls,Replacement.Motors

Usually the clock motor is held with 2 screws and then wires attach to screw terminals.
Look close at your screw terminals to see clock wires.
Normally timer mechanism snaps out of box and clock motor is on back of mechanism.

Using washer with 50Hz instead of 60Hz electricity--what does it

what you need is a frequency convertor. most modern day electrical equipment is 60 hertz. motors and transformers tend to burn up if the frequency isn't correct. they generate a lot of heat which burns them up.
