When starting a load, Water not coming out over soap dispensing area all the time. Sometimes dispenses over bleach/softener side. What's wrong?


I am not an expert in such things.

Solenoid valves control where the water goes and the controller and the clock sends, or should send, a signal to the appropriate solenoid at the correct time.

In the case where water is permanently misdirected it would seem to be a case of the wrong pair of wires connected to the wrong solenoid after a repair, for instance,

In the case of intermittently misdirected flow it is likely to be a faulty controller, though possibly could be faulty wiring or connectors to the control board, perhaps because of a small water leak.

Good morning, problem began when timer stopped working at the pin "off" point. Figured a new timer was in order so replaced with a WG1573-5 (same as previous) Timer is T104. Now the problem, when the timer...


Did you buy new timer or new clock motor?
WG1573 is replacement 240v clock motor for T100 series timer.
T100 series is fully repairable and can be maintained to last decades. I've seen operable timer from 1950s.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#T100

You can convert T104 240Volt timer into 120V timer by changing clock motor to WG1570 to replace WG1573.

In any case, timer is wired wrong somehow since it seems to cut off one leg of the 240V circuit.
Copy following links for illustrations and troubleshoot and more information than you can use in decades:

Don't grind up your motor.
Connect direct to hot wires and run 240V.

I am replacing a intermatic t101r with a tightwatt timer. the t101r has 5 terminals wired, the tightwatt only has 4


Hello Barbara.
You dont have T101R timer. Because T101 has 3 terminals.
Remember any Intermatic timer can be replaced into the T101 enclosure.
First step, Identify your voltage.
Second step, identify if you are controlling a 2-speed pump.
Third step, identify the Intermatic timer by looking at clock motor and wiring.

T101R timer has 3 terminals, and has WG1570 120Volt clock motor.
T103R timer has 5 terminals and WH1570 120Volt clock motor
T104 timer and T106R timer have 5 terminals and WG1573 240Volt clock motor
Copy following link to help identify your specific wiring.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

Terminal A on Intermatic could be Neutral or Hot depending on what has been done to alter the timer.
Generally the tightwatt timer wires very similar to P1353 timer.

Hi - My Intermatic T101P3 timer motor stops after it turns off the pool pump. I have one start and one stop time in a 24 hr period. I have to manually start the pump at the timer in the morning,...


Sounds like the clock leads are on the wrong posts, or at least the hot one is. If if was moved to the load side then manually starting the timer will also power up the clock motor. As soon as the clock trips the off timer, the pump and the clock motor are both off. Examine the clock leads to the wiring diagram inside the clock box cover to ensure they are connected correctly. I bet you'll find one of the wires is misplaced.

When I connect the 240 volt motor directly to hte GFCI breaker it works fine, however when run throough the time clock, when I turn on the breaker, it trips the breaker


You have T104 timer that controls 240Volt motor.
You have 240Volt GFCI breaker.
GFCI to motor works fine.
GFCI to timer trips breaker.

Either timer is wired wrong, or ground fault in the timer.

Open following links to review wiring:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T-104-control-240V-Load4-35.jpg

1) Make sure clock motor wires are on terminals 1 and 3, and that clock motor is 240Volt WG1573 and not 120V WG1570
2) Try connecting GFCI hot leads to terminals 1 and 3 and don't connect wires to motor.
3) Click manual override both directions and see if a short appears.
4) Remove ground wire from timer but leave power connected. Test metal timer body to ground wire to see if there is power flowing to ground.
5) Unscrew clock motor from body, and make sure clock is not touching metal body, repeat test to ground to see if clock motor is bad.
6) Remove small white wires that power the clock, to test if clock is shorting. Replace WG1573 if clock is bad.

7) Connect 240Volt motor to terminals 2 and 4. Click override back and forth. Then reverse wires to 4 and 2.

Clock is not moving


Couple of possibilities
1. make sure the clock motor is connected to the input line 2. see #1, but make sure the clock motor comes before the switch (so it's not running just when the switch is "ON")
3. ... and make sure the feed is always on

How to wire a intermatic timer T104 240 v to a 120v?


T104 is 240volt timer.
Timer has terminals A 1 2 3 4
T-104 clock motor must receive 240Volts to operate.
Clock motor wires are white-colored and can be seen connected to terminals 1 and 3.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Back-of-WH40-2b.jpg

There are two work-arounds for using T104 for 120V.

1) Diagram 1 showing how to change wiring:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T-104-control-120V-Load-500.jpg
Move 240V clock motor wires to terminal 1 and A.
Connect 240V Hot leads to terminals 1 and A. This will power the 240V clock motor
Hot wire going to 120V load connects to terminal 2. This wire will be turned on each time timer turns on, and 120Volts will power the 120V load.
To complete 120V circuit, neutral wire that comes from neutral busbar in breaker box connects to 120V load.

To control additional 120Volt circuit, run jumper wire from terminal 1 to terminal 3.
Connect Hot to second load to terminal 4.

2) Second method is to change T104 timer into T103 timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T-104-control-120V-Load-2-5.jpg
Replace T104 240V clock with identical 120V clock motor from Grainger
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Time-Clock-Motor-1PNK1?Pid=search
Neutral wires connect to terminal A.
Hot wire from Breaker connects to terminal 1
Hot going to Load connects to terminal 2

To control additional 120Volt circuit, run jumper wire from terminal 1 to terminal 3.
Connect Hot to second load to terminal 4.

The on/off lever on my t103r has worn down , and the timer dial posts no longer switch it on and off . can i replace that part . thank you , Don Henrichsen / Sherman Oaks , California


I think trippers have worn down.
Tripper are made of softer metal than on-off lever.
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Timer-Tripper-2E054?Pid=search
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi

That being said, if you have gone through several trippers and timer is old, then on-off lever can wear out.
Except for 125V clock motor and on-off trippers, there are no repair parts for T-103.
Buy new T103 and swap mechanisms without changing box.
That way you don't have to buy more expensive T-103R outdoor timer.
Mechanism snaps out with metal spring located at top inside box.

I purchased T-103 last week from Lowes.
Surprised that Lowes carried all 3 T-100 series timers:
T-101 125V with terminals A 1 2
T-103 125V with capability of controlling 120-or-240V circuits with terminals A 1 2 3 4
T-104 240V with terminals A 1 2 3 4

Timer stopped running so I replace timer motor. However the timer still does not run. I can still turn pool pump on manually. Will I have to replace entire unit?


T103 clock motor is 125 volt WG1570
1) If you bought the 240V WG1573, the clock will not operate
2) If you connected the motor wires to wrong terminals, then clock will not operate.
3) If original box label says T103, but 240V T104 was installed in same box, and you bought wrong voltage motor
4) Test for 120Volts across terminals A and 1, and make sure clock motor matches voltage of timer, and clock motor wires are connected to terminals A and 1.
