I would like to replace five Intermatic wall switch timers (model WG230-6) that are not presently working.


The Intermatic E1020C timer is a 120 volt, single gang, single pole switch. This means it must ONLY be used on 120 volt circuits (to operate the internal timer motor), will fit into a standard electrical swithbox (does not require over or double sized boxes) and will replace a standard, single pole switch ie: has ONLY two terminal screws (not including the green ground terminal) and if a toggle type - has ON and OFF on the handle. The only additional requirement is that the switchbox will need hot (often black or red) & neutral (nearly always white) power in wires and hot (again, black or red) and neutral (again, nearly always white) power out (to the light or fan) wires. Many times, these devices are wired a little differently - with just 2 wires - instead of the four cited above. This is to provide power to keep the timer motor operating. The manual for this switch can be downloaded (and printed) here.

The part number of the old switch you provided does not appear to be correct. This number lends me to believe that it is for a 220-240 volt circuit. The closest I could find to an Intermatic part number was WG230-13. This part is the timer motor for replacement on a differnt style timer. It is indeed a 220 - 240 volt clock motor as I suspected. Please double check the brand and model number once more.

Lastly, if you can not find the info requested above, you should be able to replace the old timer with the new style - provided that the installation requirements cited in the first paragraph are met. Shut the power off before removing timers and switches and test with a working meter to be sure.

I hope this helps & good luck!

I have two 220 Intermatic time clocks in a raintight box operating a pool pump and a sweep (cleaning) pump for my pool. The clock motor quit operating--it is an Intermatic WG1573 5 60Hz 3W. The front of...


1) Order 240V T100 series clock motor.
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-Clock-Motor-Leads-WG433-20D/dp/B0031DOHLG

2) Order extra trippers too since they are designed to wear down so they don't damage tripper lever.
Put dab of white (bicycle) grease on the tripper lever.

3) Turn power off.
Mechanism snaps out using thumb-spring located inside box at top.
Clock motor is held with two star-screws. Buy bit at auto parts store.
Clock motor wires attach to terminals 1 and 3
Reattach terminal screws very tight against copper wire and make sure wire-insulation is not caught under screw clamp.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html
To re-set current time, lift and rotate dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.

4) See next generation of Intermatic pool timers that snap into same box.
New timer controls 3 separate circuits with different schedules for each circuit, so the single timer can replace both mechanical timers. Wiring is complicated, programming is complicated. I am still reading the manual, and it makes sense to me, so you can trust fixya to help in event that you replace your timers next ten years.

Tork timer "time clock motor"kaput...someone set


You posted under Tork 8601 timer:
I don't think that clock motor is sold separately.
New timer costs 115 at Chapman:
http://shop.chapmanelectric.com/tork-8601-minute-120v-spdt-p-2361-l-en.html

120Volt Tork clock motor that fits some models is sold at frontier for $43:
http://www.frontierlighting.com/product.jsp?part=10431&process=search&show=&ID=,Photo.Cells...Time.Controls,Replacement.Motors

Usually the clock motor is held with 2 screws and then wires attach to screw terminals.
Look close at your screw terminals to see clock wires.
Normally timer mechanism snaps out of box and clock motor is on back of mechanism.

1 year old t101m timer stopped working. The manual on/off works but mechanical clock doesn't. Is there an easy fix or should I just repalce?


T101 dial is not working so the 125V clock motor needs to be replaced:
Grainger sells 125V T100 series clock motor:
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Time-Clock-Motor-1PNK1?Pid=search

Timer mechanism releases from box with metal spring located inside top of box.
Clock motor is attached with 2 star screws.
Notice clock motor has plastic gears, but timer has metal gears.
Metal gears on timer mechanism last for many years.

Notice also that clock motor wires connect to terminals A and 1.
After installing new motor, tighten screws very tight against copper wire.

Need manual to set timer


You posted under T-100 series outdoor timer
If you have different timer, add a comment with timer model number located inside cover.

T-104, T-103, T-101 timer manuals show on following page:
If your timer has R suffix, like T-101R, that means box is Raintight for outdoor use.
T-101R and T-101 mechanisms are identical except for box. T-101 box is indoor use.
Click model number and drop-down menu reveals link to manual
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/mechanical%20time%20switches/24%20hour%20dial.aspx

If you need simple wiring diagrams, and explanation for each T-104, T-103, T-101 timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

Here's how to set Intermatic T100 series timers:
Lift and rotate yellow dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.
Silver pointer is stationary at 6 o'clock position.
Put ON-OFF trippers on dial at times you want ON OFF functions.
Minimum on-off is 1 hour because of tripper width.
If timer is not working, add a comment and we'll troubleshoot.

These timers have replacement trippers and clock motors at Grainger
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi

How timer works:
Clock motor, located on back of mechanism, rotates yellow dial.
Trippers on dial push lever that turns power ON and OFF.
Off tripper pushes lever one direction.
ON tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
When lever is pushed, manual override lever clicks back and forth with audible click sound.

I having troble with my t103 timer to turn the lights on manualy i try to set the timer but for some reason doesn't work what can i do ???


T103 Intermatic timer has 120Volt clock motor and can control 120V or 240V Loads.
Wiring for timer is shown on following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T103

Troubleshoot T103:
1) Manual override is working correctly, and it snaps crisp and clean, and Load turns on-and-off.
That means timer is basically good.

2) Next look to see if yellow dial is rotating.
If dial is not rotating, then 120Volt clock motor needs to be replaced.
Take photo of wiring and mark wires before starting.
Remove two white wires connected to screw terminals 1 and A.
Snap timer mechanism out of box, clock motor is on back of timer.
Use small star screwdriver to remove old clock motor.
Reattach white wires on terminals 1 and A, tighten screws very tight.
Reset current time: lift and rotate dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.
Grainger sells 125V clock motor:
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Time-Clock-Motor-1PNK1?Pid=search

3) If dial is rotating, but gets stuck at certain times, or runs slow, then replace clock motor.

4) If dial is rotating, and trippers are attached to dial, but timer does not turn ON, then trippers are worn down and need to be replaced.
Grainger sells the T103 trippers
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Timer-Tripper-2E054?Pid=search

5) How Intermatic mechanical timers work:
Dial with ON-OFF trippers is rotated by clock motor.
Trippers on dial contact ON-OFF lever.
ON tripper pushes lever one direction.
OFF tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
Lever moves electrical contacts on back of timer that turn Load ON-OFF.
Manual override lever clicks back and forth with each ON-OFF action.

If timer has been working fine up until now, you probably need a new tripper pin
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Timer-Tripper-2E054?Pid=search

If lever is worn out, then you need new timer.
You can but a T-101 and swap insides without changing box
The T-103 will also work because it has a 120V clock motor
The T-104 is a 240V timer and will not work
You can buy the replacement timer mechanism and swap out
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-5225438-2E021?Pid=search
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-24-Hour-Dial-Timer-Mechanism-2E354?Pid=search
http://www.lowes.com/T-103

When wiring new timer, put wires back the same as old timer
For T101 and T-103 wiring schematic, see following link

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.
