Need a 36 volt battery


Depending on the space available, physical dimensions of the battery you are replacing and its amp hour rating; you may want to wire three 12v batteries in series (or if you have the room, six 6v batteries). On one battery, you should have one Positive + (usually red) terminal to connect your Positive + (Red) cable from your equipment to and the other terminal (Negative - Black) would jumper to the Positive of the second battery. From the Negative terminal of the second battery, jumper to the Positive terminal of the last battery, leaving the Negative terminal for your equipment Negative - Cable (Usually Black) to connect to. All jumpers between batteries must be the same size wire as the equipment cables to carry the amperes of the equipment load (Usually a motor).

I write complete answers, and know the GE timer line.
Open links to illustrate discussion.
Aug 2011, Jasco does not show a manual for 15351 timer.

They show 120V 15350, which is identical to 120V 15306.

That makes me believe that 240Volt GE15351 is identical to 240V GE15307.
BUT the 15351 might be a DPST with NO and NC terminals >>> add a comment if your instructions say anything about NO NC terminals.

If 15351 and 15307 are identical, then your wiring is 100% correct, assuming you connected hot leads to terminals L and 1.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/GE-15307-wiring-250.jpg
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15306

Checking details:
1) You checked that terminals L and 1 are not connected by a brass bridge.
The 120Volt timer comes with a brass bridge across L and 1
2) Timer mechanism is attached to enclosure with 2 screws. Remove timer mechanism from enclosure, and compare back of your timer with following image to confirm timer is DPST.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/IMG_9334-GE15307-500.jpg
3) Test 10-3 wire from breaker box. Test each wire to bare ground to confirm the hot wires. Then test each hot wire to other wire to confirm neutral wire. Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power and stand on dry boards.
4) Read nameplate on motor to make sure it is single-speed 240Volt.
5) IF motor is 2-speed, then look at wiring diagram and then add a comment with that information.
6) If pump motor trips breaker when connected directly, then pump might be shorted out. Double check wiring diagram on pump.

7) Take photos of problem. Post photos on flickr. Then add a comment with links to photos so I can see wiring diagrams, for possible help.

When I connect the 240 volt motor directly to hte GFCI breaker it works fine, however when run throough the time clock, when I turn on the breaker, it trips the breaker


You have T104 timer that controls 240Volt motor.
You have 240Volt GFCI breaker.
GFCI to motor works fine.
GFCI to timer trips breaker.

Either timer is wired wrong, or ground fault in the timer.

Open following links to review wiring:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T-104-control-240V-Load4-35.jpg

1) Make sure clock motor wires are on terminals 1 and 3, and that clock motor is 240Volt WG1573 and not 120V WG1570
2) Try connecting GFCI hot leads to terminals 1 and 3 and don't connect wires to motor.
3) Click manual override both directions and see if a short appears.
4) Remove ground wire from timer but leave power connected. Test metal timer body to ground wire to see if there is power flowing to ground.
5) Unscrew clock motor from body, and make sure clock is not touching metal body, repeat test to ground to see if clock motor is bad.
6) Remove small white wires that power the clock, to test if clock is shorting. Replace WG1573 if clock is bad.

7) Connect 240Volt motor to terminals 2 and 4. Click override back and forth. Then reverse wires to 4 and 2.

HOW I INSTAL ,CONNECT SWITCH TIMER TE502 ? IT


Wiring diagram shows on side of timer and looks same as to following illustration:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/NO-NC-timer-200.jpg
For more complicated illustration showing din rail and modular timer wiring variations:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/NO-NC-timer.jpg

With din rail timers, the power connects to screw terminals 1 and 2 and this will run the clock and relay.
The TE502 image is bad, and I can't see wiring diagram exactly.
It appears that terminal 4 is common. This is typical for din rail timers.
Put Hot lead to terminal 4.
Terminal 3 appears to be the NO terminal, so put wire going to Load to terminal 3.

Your screw terminals are 2-brass and 1-dark.
Dark screw is considered 'common'
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#3-way

Leviton shows a 3-way 1203-2, but not 1201
Wiring diagram indicates that pilot light is ON whenever switch has power.
http://www.leviton.com/OA_HTML/ibeCCtpItmDspRte.jsp?item=2681§ion=10046&minisite=10026

Check your instruction sheet that pilot light is supposed to turn on-off with Load.
I don't think it is, without additional terminal on switch for neutral wire.
And then it would only work on switch located closest to light.

You can wire this type of thing separately.
Buy ordinary pilot light or indicator light from WW Grainger.
Look at diagram on following image:

http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Intermatic-t8845pv.pdf

http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#sprinkler

T8845PV has 2 yellow wires for 24Volt output that powers solenoid.
1) Yes the yellow wires connect to two wires on solenoid.
2) 120Volt power arrives from breaker box. Black hot wire connects to Line terminal screw. White neutral connects to Neutral terminal screw. Check for 120Volts across both terminal screws.
3) Next check that output on yellows wires is 24Volts. The manual does not specify if that is 24Volt AC or DC. I assume that means it is AC. Buy cheap multimeter at home center to check 24Volt output.
4) Tests from 2) and 3) will tell you if 120V circuit is problem or if transformer has gone bod or if solenoid is suspect.
5) T8845PV uses T8845PV transformer, but it might be cheaper buying whole new timer and then snapping new mechanism into existing box

How to wire a intermatic timer T104 240 v to a 120v?


T104 is 240volt timer.
Timer has terminals A 1 2 3 4
T-104 clock motor must receive 240Volts to operate.
Clock motor wires are white-colored and can be seen connected to terminals 1 and 3.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Back-of-WH40-2b.jpg

There are two work-arounds for using T104 for 120V.

1) Diagram 1 showing how to change wiring:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T-104-control-120V-Load-500.jpg
Move 240V clock motor wires to terminal 1 and A.
Connect 240V Hot leads to terminals 1 and A. This will power the 240V clock motor
Hot wire going to 120V load connects to terminal 2. This wire will be turned on each time timer turns on, and 120Volts will power the 120V load.
To complete 120V circuit, neutral wire that comes from neutral busbar in breaker box connects to 120V load.

To control additional 120Volt circuit, run jumper wire from terminal 1 to terminal 3.
Connect Hot to second load to terminal 4.

2) Second method is to change T104 timer into T103 timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T-104-control-120V-Load-2-5.jpg
Replace T104 240V clock with identical 120V clock motor from Grainger
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Time-Clock-Motor-1PNK1?Pid=search
Neutral wires connect to terminal A.
Hot wire from Breaker connects to terminal 1
Hot going to Load connects to terminal 2

To control additional 120Volt circuit, run jumper wire from terminal 1 to terminal 3.
Connect Hot to second load to terminal 4.

Ckt diagram


For anyone else who may reading this post, please note that this diagram is for the T104 ONLY.
Here ya go: http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/files/intermatic/products/instructions/timers/t104%20-%20english.ashx

Basically, connect the incoming (line) 240 volt wires to terminals 1 and 3 and the outgoing (load) wires to terminals 2 and 4. Of course, connect the (bare or green) equipment ground wires from both cables to the "GR" terminal.

Need to charge 12v car battery


Hello,

If battery is out of the vehicle, connect positive lead to positive terminal and negative lead to negative terminal.

If battery is in the vehicle, the proper way to connect leads depends on if it's a negative-grounded or a positive-grounded vehicle.

Here is a link to the manual for this charger.
Click where it says "Get This manual" (it's free).

Scroll down to pages 4 and 5 and it give detailed instructions on the proper way to connect leads and a lot more. It's a good manual to keep for future use.

I hope this helps.
