Question about Intermatic & Indoor/Outdoor Rain Tight Timer

1 Answer

I have a rather old Intermatic Timer that I use to turn on/off a pole light in the front of our home. The Timer is located inside the garage and has run without a problem for many years. I'm sure the little motor is bad and it has the following information on the motor. 125 V W-160 60C 2.5w UL E-22587 Where can I purchase a replacement motor and the estimated cost? L.Morse

Intermatic/GE 15071 digital wall timer - Connection Problem

1) GE 15071 (Tork SS20) is single-pole timer, and cannot be wired as 3-way timer

2) Check wire nuts are tight
Remove light bulb and spray WD40 into socket. Reinstall light bulb

3) Reset timer using paper clip or tooth pick, then reprogram to see if functionality is restored

4) Move timer to different location and see if it controls different light

5) Buy another 15071 from home depot.
Remove bad timer, take photo of wires, and install new timer same wire-for-wire.
Return bad timer to home depot in new package.
This is GE's extended warranty plan, but do not mention warranty at return desk.

5) Intermatic and GE are fierce rivals in the timer business.
Intermatic makes their own products. GE timers are generally made by Tork. Both companies sell timers worldwide.

I have porch lights that are controlled by a switch in front entryway and also from garage. (3-way) I want to put a timer in entryway and by-pass the garage so lights come on from only one location.

Identify which of 2 switches has the Hot or Power wire.
Hot wire will be connected to dark screw on one of the switches.

If Hot wire is in garage box, then follow this Step 1-2-3 diagram for ST01C timer:

If Hot or power wire is in entryway box, then you have a '3-way no neutral,' so cap off 3 wires going to other switch. ..
And then wire ST01C timer as single pole no neutral.

What is the intermatic e 1020 used for just moved into a house andits in the bathroom and makes a lot of noise.

The E1020 timer is reliable heavy-duty 24-hour on-off analog timer with replaceable trippers and manual override, rated 12 amps.
This timer replaces ordinary single-pole on-off switch.
Timer has extra white wire that connects to white neutral wires inside box to run timer mechanism, while mechanical single-pole switch does not need this wire.
I don't know what it is doing... maybe running the vent fan periodically, or turning on attic vent fan?

For same timer, with less noise, install E1100-1200 aka the KM series in-wall analog timer. Or install digital in-wall timer, or replace timer with on-off switch.

I just purchased a home that has an Intermatic T103 installed in the garage, how can I figure out want it's connected too?

T-103 is 120Volt timer that can be used to control 120Volt and/or 240Volt loads, for example pools and spas and outdoor lights.
Look at the yellow dial and see if it has trippers attached to dial.
If no trippers are on the dial, then the timer function is off.
Next look at dial and see if it rotates as time passes.
If dial does not rotate, then either the clock motor is bad or electricity to timer is off or timer is not connected to power.
Test across terminals A and 1 for 120Volts will tell if timer is getting power.
Last, move manual override back and forth and see if anything turns on and off.

My timer for my water feature looks like your Intermatic T101R3 timer. I do not have an instruction manual. Can you e-mail me some simple instructions for using this so I won't get charged an...

T101R3 is outdoor pool timer with fireman's switch.
Some are double-pole, some are single pole, some are 240V and others are 120V.
They each look like the other so eyeball identification is not enough information.
The model number should be inside door of timer.

I have been unable to locate manual specific for these products, and I have looked.
I was looking yesterday for this instruction manual.
Some wiring diagrams appear on following page, but again it depends on your specific model

The T101R series is designed to control pool pump and pool heater.
Fireman's switch automatically turns off pool heater 20 minutes before pool pump is scheduled to turn off.
So you set the trippers on dial, and then the fireman's switch does the rest automatically.

Add a comment with in-focus photo of inside of timer door and I can put together all the information and simplify instructions. Put your digital camera in 'macro' with the flower-symbol to take close-up photos. Photo has to be in focus so I can read information and see wiring schematic.

I have an intematic wall timer in my gararge. I read in one of the posts that the reason the battery only lasts 30 days in in a cold gararge due to the cold. I have the same problem. Is there a solution...

1) I tested this timer and read pdf on battery specs:
20-30 days is battery life for CR2 ST01C battery

2) In addition, Fixya customers report needing to change battery frequently when timer is located in garage.
The same is true for Aube timers since timer display is dependent on rechargeable battery.
I have not tested every timer, but it seems in-wall timers that are used for 3-way switching have this problem.

3) If your garage timer is not 3-way, where more than 1 switch controls same light, then buy single pole timer and replace Intermatic.
For example GE 15086 & 15071, Woods 59018 & 59028, Tork SS720 (which is GE), Utilitec 014224

4) If you need astronomic dawn-dusk timer that is single-pole and not battery operated, then buy Utilitec 0192773 - LW60419 at Lowes.
Link below gives manual and wiring, both are tricky judging by number of fixya requests.

You posted under Intermatic EI210 countdown timer.
To confirm this is your product, open link below:
Manual with operation instructions appear on link below

EI210 replaces single-pole switch only.
Single pole switch is where 1 switch controls the Load (light, fan, motor)

To wire this timer:
1) Single-pole switch has 2 insulated wires and 1 bare ground wire.
2) Connect insulated switch wires to timer red wire and timer black wire, in either order for now.
3) Connect timer green wire to bare ground wire.
4) In back of electric box are white wire that are twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer white wire to these wires. This will power electronics located inside the timer.
5) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer white wire to bare ground wire along with green wire.
6) Turn power ON. Press oval button. If indicator light turns ON, then timer is wired correctly. If indicator light does not come on, then reverse timer black wire and timer red wire.

For a price, fixya expert gives you same instructions shown above via phone while you connect the device.

Hello I have an older T103 Intermatic which controlls outside lights. It is no longer turning on lights and is making an unusual clicking noise. Can it be repaired or should I install a new...

You can replace the clock motor for $16 ...
... but if the mechanical timer mechanism is worn out, then that is not repairable. To check mechanism, lift timer dial and rotate tripper pins out of way, then click manual override on-and-off >> if override works fine, and lights come on then motor is probably the problem.

If you buy a new T103, the insides might snap right into old timer box without needing to replace the box. To remove insides, depress retainer spring located at top, tip out timer, and lift to remove. New timer has 4 tripper pins. Save old tripper pins, and tape them inside box.

What would make the lights controlled by the Intermatic Wall Switch timer flicker?

I believe that your house is 2 pole wired (old house?) and the timer is 2 pole. After some net searching (I bought one of these also and am having the same problem) you can't use it. You need one that will work with a 2 poled wiring system. If you find out differently, please let me know.
