SOURCE: T104 intermatic timer being used
T104 is 208-277Volt timer.
Wiring is correct if timer worked fine before.
Click manual override and see if lights turn on-off.
If manual override clicks clean and crisp, and lights turn on-off, then timer mechanism is working.
If manual override is sluggish and hard to push, and timer mechanism is rusty or dirty, then timer needs to be replaced.
Buy another T-104, swap out insides without changing box. Put wires back as before.
If the dial stops moving, then replace clock motor.
T104 uses the t-100 series 208-277 clock motor that Grainger sells for around $20
If the dial operates fine, the trippers may be worn out.
Grainger also sells T104 tripper

Link below has wiring diagrams and wiring manuals for 240V 8145-20
I am not expert installing defrost timers.
According to information from Paragon, 8145 is for hot gas defrosting. 8140 series are time initiated, and pressure-or-temperature terminated.
Wiring diagram does not show compressor wired to timer.
The cycle works like this:
Timer is running but defrost is not switched ON.
Fan is ON.
Timer switches ON and activates defrost cycle.
Fan turns OFF. Hot gas valve turns ON for defrosting.
Cycle limit switch is temperature or pressure sensitive.
Cycle limit switch reaches trip point, timer switches OFF.
Hot gas valve turns OFF. Fan turns ON.
So fan is off during defrost cycle.
Hot gas valve turns ON when timer switches ON.
Timer is switched OFF by pressure-or-temperature limit switch.
