SOURCE: G.E. Spacemaker XL1800- Loud constant buzzing noise. Help

My microwave was totally dead. Things I discovered: 1) There is an easily replacable fuse accessed by taking off the top front vent cover (two screws on top, gently massage off) and then the inside plastic grill. UNPLUG before doing this! 2) Pop off two wires on either end of fuse holder for safety. Then pop out fuse and replace. For more extensive help, there is an evelope with a wiring diagram inside the case on the inside wall! Very helpful when diagnosing the surface lamp problem (I forgot to plug the ballast back in when I closed up the bottom).

SOURCE: manual lever setting for water heater timer

post a close up of the timer and i will tryto assist you.
normally it dosent matter where the lever is as it should reset itself after each comlete operation . ie if you turn it on it should turn off when it reaches a preset off cam pin. or position indicator lever.

SOURCE: Clock on a GE electric range is buzzing - how to disconnect it

Turn off power to range first!!!

You'll have to remove the back of the panel in which the clock is installed to access the back of the clock. There will be two wires attached to the clock. Just pulling one of these wires off will stop the clock.

I would suggest, however, that you pull both wires off, put electrical tape on the ends of the connectors, and tuck them out of the way somewhere around the clock.

SOURCE: Intermatic pool pump timer, time clock won't turn

Check your wiring, it sounds like it's not right. The clock needs 120 volts to run.

Intermatic t10004rt3 pool timer cycles a loud hum/buzz noise like bad contacts or relay


T10004R control center has one T104 240V timer, with extra space for another timer or freeze control etc.
You can clean up the timer and replace clock motor to stop most noises.
The T104M (M for mechanism-only, snaps into the control center enclosure.
The T104 also snaps out of enclosure using thumb spring located top inside box.
Take image of wires before disconnecting from timer.
The T104 is identical to WH40, same parts, same trippers, same appearance, except with different override lever.
Here are photos of WH40 showing how to take apart timer and clean it, also with links identifying replacement parts:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Photos-of-WH40-timer.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T104

If you need to replace timer, it is cheaper to buy the ordinary T104 that comes inside a box and can be snapped out, instead of buying T104M (M for mechanism-only)

Pool pump clock


T104M used WG1573 clock motor:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-Intermatic-timer.html
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.

Clock on T1905 timer switch has quit working. Fixable, or need a replacement?


120Volt T1905 Intermatic timer uses WG730 clock motor and 156T1950A tripper.
Timer will last many year by replacing parts, and keeping lubricated with touch of white grease, and not over-amping the 20 amp contacts

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T1906-Intermatic-timer.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-Intermatic-clock-motor.html

This timer can be converted into 208-277Volt timer by installing WG733 clock motor instead of 120Volt WG730.

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.

HI My Intermatic T10404R has two timers (one for pool pump and the other for the polaris vaccuum). Unfortunately, the timer for the vaccuum is not working. Is there is fix for this or does the whole system...


Probably just the $18 clock motor, or $2 trippers.
Or buy timer-mechanism-only and snap into same box.

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

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.

The pump stopped working today. There is power to the pump and the circuits did not shut down. I think the clock could be bad. It has not moved so I feel the problem is the clock. the pump is new.


If you move the manual lever to the ON position the pump should turn ON. If the pump turns ON manually and the clock is not moving as you say, then, yes, the clock timer motor is bad.

Replacement parts are available here: (Cat# WG1573)

My rain tight intermatic outdoor timer no longer switches contact


the way the message reads the timer was working and then quit. most likely the contacts or clock motor has wore out. but by u sayiing u can't get power manually i would say the contacts or relay that switches the load is bad.

i would try to buy a timer that was the same and put the guts in the old box if its alot of trouble to change out.

one other thing u can check, is the timer getting its operating power from the circuit or is the something else controlling the timer. if there is something else controlling the timer, i would check that to see if i had power there.
