I was having the same problem and came accross these instructions. The following link is a PDF file. The first page relates to an analog timer and the following pages relate to a more advanced digital one. Good luck.

Here's my solution: Yank that worthless piece of **** off your water heater! It's just a placebo that the manufacturer made a pile of money on and now they can't support their own product!

Clock does not rotate


If clock does not rotate, then check if outlet has power. Check for loose wires.
If clock rotated before and stopped working, then clock motor might have gone bad.

Replacement clock: Taco timer uses the FM1 timer module.
Voltage and timer information appear on back of timer.

Open following links to identify timer and model number:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/FM1-5-image.gif
http://www.intermatic.com/products/ec%204%20layer/mechanical%20time%20switches/modular%20din%20rail%20timers/fm1%20series%20-%2024%20hour%20and%207%20day.aspx

For example Taco timer module is 24 hour, and 120Volts, and doesn't have battery back-up.
-If timer has on-off-timer switch, then model number is FM1STUZH-120U
-If timer does not have on-off-timer switch, then model number is FM1STUZ-120U

Where is the on switch, for constant hot water located?


Question posted under Taco digi timer control

Taco must have stock of old digi timers because that timer is discontinued.
It's a good timer. It's just been replaced by less attractive, more complicated digital timer with fewer buttons.
The manual switch for this timer is located at top and is denoted by 'hand' symbol.
Press left side for ON and right side for OFF.

My Taco Time Clock 265 Analog is not working. I overloaded the circuits last week and the GFI outlet 'died'. I have replaced that outlet, but the time clock is not operating. Help, I long for immediate hot...


Yes it should be easy to replace.
The manual appears on following link:
http://www.taco-hvac.com/uploads/FileLibrary/102-067A.pdf

'Analog' timer has dial face that rotates as time passes, the 'digital' timer has programming buttons.

The manual seems very straightforward.
Turn power off, connect wires, set timer.

Of course what seems simple to experts who do wiring each day, may not seem simple to person asking question. So add a comment with specific detailed question if you need help.

I want to reset the timer for hours of on-off for out water heater but can't figure out how to push the little white teeth in or out. Model is 265-1.


1) Open following link to read about re-circulation systems:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-recirculation-system.html

2) Image below show typical FM1 analog timer dial with pins:
Move pins with fingernail or small tool.
To test if pins need to be moved in or out, set pins each direction and manually rotate dial clockwise and listen when pump turns on-off.
How timer operates: clock motor rotates dial continually, pins on dial move lever that turns circuit on-off.
To set current time, manually rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Some timers have a selector switch: move switch to Auto, or Timer, or Timer ON. Again you can manually rotate dial and check which setting is correct.
