Is this new installation?
If timer dial is not rotating, then timer is not wired correctly, voltage is wrong, or timer motor has stopped functioning.
If small motor used to rotate dial has gone bad, then replace timer.

SOURCE: Lights will turn on and off manually only

Just checking, still plugged in, fuse or circuit breaker not tripped that provides power to it? If you can turn it manually, and the dial does not turn when powered up, look for a small on/off switch, other than that, maybe it does need replacement, but they usually last longer that a year, but I have had some timers that just quit working on me too.

SOURCE: Intermatic pool pump timer, time clock won't turn

Check your wiring, it sounds like it's not right. The clock needs 120 volts to run.

SOURCE: Model T101 is not turning

The breaker is tripping?
Timer starts again when you flip breaker. It sounds like breaker is loose on the busbar, or there is loose wire that stops making contact, and then the timer turns off because no electricity is flowing to timer.

You have T101 timer.
When the timer is off next time: Stand on dry surface or dry boards. Open cover. Notice there is a plastic insulator that covers wiring terminals. On the insulator, each wiring terminal is marked: A 1 2. Remove plastic insulator that covers wiring terminals. Use ordinary electrical tester. Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from voltage. Test across terminals 1 and A for 120Volts (or 110, 115, 125V is all the same).
If there is no voltage, then circuit breaker and/or wire from circuit breaker is suspect.

SMEG OVEN BRAND NEW WON'T HEAT


This tutorial will show you how to check your Smeg element and how to replace your Smeg cooker element.
Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating
  • Your oven will not work until the clock/timer has been re-set after replacing an oven element or tripping the electrical supply. Consult your Smeg manual.
  • If your Oven is not getting hot or heating up it could be a faulty element, if the fan in the oven is running and the thermostat light is on, this will lead us to believe that the element has gone faulty. With grills the thermostat light should come on there should be heat, if not then this could be the grill element or the thermostat.
  • When you turn the oven on, the household electrical supply trips on the Rcd (this is the earth trip in the fuse board sometimes called the breaker tripping) your fan oven element has gone to earth and needs replacing.

My GE Profile Jvm1870sk03 microwave built oven does not work. There is power, the clock, timer works. If I press the button to heat the clock shows it's going on but there is no heating process go


Most likely door switches. Companies these days use switches with small 3/16 terminals and they tend to get hot and make the switch go bad. When I replace them I put in a 20 amp rated switch with 1/4 inch terminals, and a short section of better wire to the switch. If you make better connections it stops the wires from getting hot and the switch will last a long time.

I have a GE JES831WB 001 microwave that I'd love to fix. The light, clock & timer are working, but that's all - no fan nor heating. Any suggestions?


The door switches are often a problem, one or two are probably defective which would cause the symptoms that you are describing.

Open following link to determine if timer is bad:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-Intermatic-timer.html

Key things are clock dial rotating on timer, and manual override lever turning load ON-OFF.
If clock motor is rotating and keeping good time, then you know that timer is receiving 240Volt from circuit breaker.

Check for loose wiring, and then check if you have 240V across terminals 2 and 4.
If you have 240volt across terminals 2 and 4, then that says 240V is going to Load, and that load is suspect.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

Buy cheap multimeter from hardware: set multimeter to read 240 or 250V, and put test prongs on terminals 2 and 4, and then move override lever and test again.
Safety: Tape multimeter leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power. Stand on dry boards. Use adequate light.

If timer is genuinely bad, then you can buy timer insert: T104M
Usually it is cheaper to buy whole new T014, and then snap new mechanism into old box.

I am using my mother's Elgin 3400E travel alarm


On my Elgin alarm clock, you just push the nap button and it will add 15 minute increments for a nap. I haven't figured out how to turn it off if I change my mind or wake up earlier than I set it.

Hi well IF the clock isn't moving,and one must wait at least say 1/2 hour before one can tell, and IF there is NO movement then there is NO power getting to the drive motor?

Basically it is a Motor that drives a gear train, that makes one full revolution every 24hours, and as you so correctly state, the "pins" control the OFF & ON... again basically these pins "Trip" a "Switch" in the timer.

Most often the timers wiring provides the power to the "Motor' as well as the switched contacts, so ensure it is wired up correctly, if using a wired version, else it simply plugs in to the mains socket and the outlet is switched on & off accordingly...

Clock does not work to turn pool filter on and off. do I need a new timer mechanism or clock motor


Things to check:

1) Is yellow dial rotating? If not, then clock motor is probably bad. T-100 240V time clock motor sells for $16 at grainger.
Also timer may not be getting 240V so check manual override.

2) If clock motor is turning, but manual override never clicks on-and-off, then pins are probably worn out. Buy pins at grainger

3) Does manual override work? Does it click crisp? If manual override clicks crisp on-and-off, and pool filter turns on-and-off normally, then a) the circuit is getting 240V and b) the timer mechanism is ok ... so clock motor is probably bad.

4) If manual override snaps crisp but pool timer does not turn on, then then circuit breaker could be bad, wire is loose, motor has gone bad
Test for 240 across poles 1 and 2
... or timer contacts are worn out & you need new T-104
See back of mechanical timer

5) If manual override is loose or sluggish, then you need new T104. You can buy a T-104, T-104R, T-104M etc ... and the interior body will snap into old box.

Note: Do not buy T-101 or T-103 as these have 120V motor.
