Push the clock dial in to see if that will engage the clock again. Also here is the manual if you need it.

What position is lever on intermatic pool timer t104p3 for timer to work?


Lever automatically moves back and forth as trippers pass.
Move lever to ON position, move to the right.
If timer dial is not rotating, then check wiring, or replace clock motor:
If timer worked before and stopped working, but dial still rotates, the trippers are worn down, replace trippers:

Pool pump clock


T104M used WG1573 clock motor:

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-Intermatic-clock-motor.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#T100
The timer mechanism has metal gears, while the clock motor has plastic gears. If the metal gears get dirty and bind, it will strip the plastic gears.
Turn off power, pull timer out of box, Clean out timer with compressed air, and spray WD40, add a bit of white grease to lever where trippers make contact, then replace clock motor ... and buy another set of trippers to have on-hand since they are designed to wear down so timer will last longer.
If timer body is broken so dial does not rotate, then buy new T104 and snap new mechanism into old box. Buying whole T104 with enclosure is cheaper than buying T104M mechanism only.

I dont know how to set the timer


Question posted under Intermatic T104 series timer and pool control center.
Open following link to see how to set this timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/How-to-operate-and-set-T104-timer.pdf

Intermatic T12404R control center has 2 timers.
Each timer is set same way.
Timer must be reset after power outage. If time dial is not rotating correctly or is sticking at the tripper, then the WG1573 clock motor can be replaced by homeowner.
Both timers are 240Volts, and can be wired in variety of ways to control different voltages. For example 120Volt pool lights, and 240Volt pool pump and pool heater etc.
Each timer snaps out of control center using thumb spring located top inside box.
Each timer mechanism is sold separately. One timer is T104M. The other is T104M201.
The difference is that the 201 has a 'fireman's switch' that can be wired to pool heater, and the switch turns off heater 15-20 minutes before turning off pump.
Each timing mechanism can be repaired by homeowner using available clock motors and trippers.

So my intermetic time is broken, the gears dont turn, and the on/ off override isnt working. I need my pool heater, what do i do?


Sounds like you lost power to the timer. Look in your electric panel for a tripped breaker. Turn it OFF then back ON.

An electrician installed a new Tork 1103 24 hr timer for the pool pump. You can only manually turn it on and off. When trying to set the time, the dial is loose and does not stay in position and does not...


I think you have 120Volt pool pump.
Add a comment if this is incorrect since wiring information is based on this assumption.

(1) Wiring problem:
Evidence shows timer is wired in reverse (dial only rotates when pump is ON, and dial stops rotating when pool pump is OFF)
Electrician reversed the wires, but wires need to be tested.
Hot wire from circuit breaker always connects to L
Neutral wire from breaker box connects to unmarked terminal.
This will give clock motor continuous power.
Next:
Black wire going to Load (pump) connects to X
White wire going to Load connects to unmarked terminal along with Neutral wire.

Tork 1103 is SPDT timer with 3 watt 120volt clock motor that can control multiple loads and voltages, and can be wired many different ways.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/1103INSTALLOP.pdf

(2) Loose dial. The dial should only rotate counterclockwise when moved with hand. The fact that trippers work when rotated by hand says dial is probably not problem. If timer is used, and trippers skip over and do not turn on Load (pump) then order P47 replacement trippers.

I have an intermatic T104P3 timer for my pool and now it won't turn on. I have to start the pool on manual. I have tryed to remove the screw to start and it goes right by it and does not set the pool on....


Hi Dianna, I am timer expert at Fixya

1) When you say screw, I believe you mean tripper?
geno_3245_273.jpg

2) Trippers are placed on dial using thumb screw. Clock motor located on back of mechanism rotates dial. So dial rotates as time passes.
On-off trippers rotate around on the dial and push a lever back and forth that turns pump on-off.
Trippers are designed to wear down so that timer mechanism lasts longer.
You can buy replacement trippers for T100 series timers at Grainger:
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi

3) You posted under T104 timer.
Notice that grainger also sells WG1573 240Volt clock motors for the T104.
Clock motors slow down and burn out.
Clock motors are replaced by tipping mechanism out of box using thumb spring located inside box at top. Clock motor is attached with 2 small star screws. Buy star screwdriver at auto parts or hardware.
When ordering trippers, you might want extra clock motor on hand for when the dial stops rotating.

4) Open following link to see manual and wiring instructions for T104.

My pumps won't go off when the timer says it should. It just keeps running. I have to throw the breaker to turn off the pumps.


Does the manual override turn Load ON-OFF? If manual override is broken or doesn't operate, it may be time to buy new timer mechanism and snap into existing box.
http://www.amazon.com/dp/240Volt-20
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-24-125V-Hour-Dial-Timer
Do timer dials rotate as time passes? Do dials keep proper time? If not, you need new clock motor. Grainger sells clock motors and trippers:
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi
Are the tripper pins still attached to the dial? If tripper pins are worn down, they need replacement.

The timer clicked OFF but poot pump kept running. Had to trip breaker to stop pool pump.


Your Intermatic timer has a manual override.
The override is a good diagnostic.
Click the manual override and see if pump turns on and off.

Next, watch if the clock is rotating.
If the clock is rotating, the OFF tripper may be worn out and you need a new tripper

geno_3245_4.jpg

If the clock wheel is not rotating, you need a new clock motor.
If you have T104, your clock motor is 240Volts
If you have T101 or T103, your clock motor is 125Volts
Buy trippers and clock motors at Grainger
Clock motor replacement takes a small star-screwdriver bit
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi

If your manual override is not working, then the gears might be rusty and need to be cleaned or your timer needs to be replaced.
You can buy same model number timer and then swap the insides without changing boxes.
