The wiring diagram for that timer is somewhat misleading. The 120 volt clock timer motor is connected internally to the "A" (neutral) terminal and the #3 terminal. The "A" (neutral) terminal is to the immediate left of the #1 terminal.
Here's how to do the wiring for your use, (assuming a 120 volt supply circuit and a 120 volt lighting or other load):
Connect the incoming power (line) black wire to terminal # 3. Connect the incoming (neutral) white wire to terminal "A".
Connect the outgoing (load) black wire to terminal # 4.
Connect the outgoing (neutral) white wire to terminal "A".

Wiring diagram for Intermatic AND WG1573-5


WG1573 is 240Volt clock motor.
The white wires on clock motor generally connect to terminals 1 and 3, but they can be moved to accommodate different wiring objectives, depending on the timer and voltage being used

Add a comment saying if this is a new timer, or older timer that stopped working recently. Describe the timer in detail, including how many screw terminals and where each wire is connected. Include voltage of pump, and describe the circuit breaker controlling circuit.

Intermatic t101


99% chance the Timer wires are reversed ... and line from breaker and line to pump are reversed. Or remotely possibly the circuit is 240V, and somebody changed clock motor on old T101 from WG1570 to WG1573, converting old T101 into T102...

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.

Manual switch works timer doesn't.


Timer that worked before and stopped working: could be clock motor or trippers
New timer installation: possibly the wiring from breaker box and wire to Load are reversed.

I have a ge timer 15132 and it is wired up properly feed to screw 1 and 2 , jumper from hot to com, load to no contact and the neutral tied with the other from the feed, all the time are set proper and the...


I have tested this timer.
GE 15132 timer can be wired muliple ways to accommodate different voltages and many different timing needs.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-GE-15132-timer.html

1) First thing is you must set dip switches BEFORE applying power.
Timer arrives pre-set for 277Volts.
For 120V, set all 4 dip switches to the left, or ON.

2) Otherwise your wiring sounds correct.
Hot black wire to far left 'clock' terminal.
Neutral white wire to next 'clock' terminal.

Jumper from Hot terminal to COM terminal.
Black Load wire on NO terminal.
White Load wire to same 'clock' terminal as Neutral

3) Possible solution:
Move wires to COM2 and NO2 and see if that relay is working.

4) Make sure your programming does not have conflicts.
See if manual override is working.
Test for voltage across 'clock' terminals
Move manual override and watch if relay clicks open-closed.
Check that Load is operable by moving NO wire to COM terminal.

5) If timer is not functioning, exchange at Home Depot.
You can switch out mechanism without replacing box.
Mechanism is held with hex screws.

The old timer that was there quit working tryed to put a new woods one in but cant get it to work help


The following wiring diagram works for Woods, GE, Hagar, Leviton, Sylight, Utilitec, some Intermatic in-wall timers.
It does not apply to Aube timers or Intermatic battery-operated timers.

If the wires are not connected correctly, the timer will not operate as expected.
Click the manual override and see what happens.
If the lights do not turn ON with the manual override, then the wiring is suspect.
If the lights blink, then you have put the red and white wires together.
If the lights turn ON, but timer clock is not working, it is possible you have the black and red wires reversed.
If the white wire is not connected correctly, the clock mechanism will not operate.

Review the wiring.
Black-timer wire goes to black-hot-wire from breaker
Red-timer wire goes to black-wire going to Load (lights)
White-timer wire connects to the Neutral wires that are usually twisted together and covered with a wire nut.
IF your box does not contain those white wires, then you can work-around by connecting white wire to bare ground wire.

Im installing a TORK 1103.. Im hooking this timer up to 4 outlets.. I have a black, a white, a red and a copper wire.. my problem is I have to turn the timer on and off manually.. The clock is not...


Tork 1103 is mechanical timer with 125V 3 watt clock motor
Dial on front face rotates when clock has voltage
Dark and light colored pins connected to dial, and turn timer on and off
There is removable brass bar that connects poles L and 1

You have 4 wires:
Red >>> I'm not sure about this wire, is this Hot wire coming from tandem breaker?
Black >>> this is Hot wire coming from tandem breaker
White >>> this is Neutral wire
Bare ground

Test wires:
Please test Black and Red to bare ground to see if these are both Hot
Test Hots to white to confirm this is Neutral
Solution ASSUMES black and red are both Hot, and white is Neutral

You have 2 problems:
Prob 1) Clock does not rotate dial: so clock is bad -or- clock not wired correctly
Prob 2) You are able to control 4 plugs using manual override, which means load wires are correct
However, you want to wire timer 'without red wire' (which is confusing, since red wires are connected to outlets)

ef19106.jpg
Solution Prob 1:
1) The diagram show the N or Neutral wire is connected to Unmarked pole on timer
2) Black Hot has to be connected to pole L
3) Unmarked pole and pole L must be wired with 120V as shown before dial will rotate
4) If wiring is correct and dial does not rotate, then clock motor is bad
5) If dial rotates, check outer rim of dial to see if you have dark and light pins for on-off functions
6) Notice that all the Neutrals connect on Unmarked pole

Solution Prob2:
Are you saying that the household wiring extends beyond the 4 plugs, so when you turn off the 4 plugs, it also turns off more plugs and switches farther down the line? If so, you need to wire plugs with separate hot wire.
Let me review features on timer which might help:
1) There is removable brass bar between poles L and 1
2) If brass bar is removed, then you need Hot wires on both L and 1... but you can jumper between L and 1 with short black wire
3) If brass bar is there, then one Hot connected to either L or 1 will power both clock and load.
4) Timer is DPST double pole single throw ... so you can control 2 different loads ... one load connects to Unmarked pole and pole X ... another load connects to Unmarked pole and pole 2

If brass bar is removed:
Jumper between poles L and 1 ... so only one Hot wire is used on your timer.

Below shows jumper on poles L & 1: hot to load is on pole 2

Clock not working


the white wires that come from the clock need to be connected to both of the "line" terminals. If you have them connected to the "load" side, it will cut power to the clock once it turns off and it won't turn on again... hope this helps...
