Tork Time Switch runs in reverse direction

My Tork Time Switch Model 1101 goes in the reverse direction. Is is a wiring issue? The unit has been hooked up to the window display lights of a store for a dozen years or so. Do I need to rewire it? Thanks.

On my Tork 1101, the off switch was sticking and stopped the motor which then ran in reverse. Turning the power to it off and on will get it running the right way. Cleaning and lubricating the off switch might stop the sticking.

Can a tork timer 1101 be used to control a 240 volt pool pump motor by controlling only 1 lead of the motor thus having the other lead hot all the time?


Yes: 240 volt can be controlled by turning off 1 hot leg of 240V circuit.
But the tork 101 clock motor still requires 120Volts (unless you buy a tork 240volt 201 clock motor to replace the 120volt 101)

Copy following links for handy resource and wiring diagram:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101

http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Tork-1101-wired-to-control-240.jpg

In the wiring diagram above, it shows white neutral wire running to Tork 1101 timer terminal 2. Bring this white neutral wire from any nearby 120volt outlet.
In event that you do not have this white neutral wire, you can connect ground wire to terminal 2 and that will give 120volts to the 101 clock motor.
Completing circuit to clock motor using ground wire is violation of national electric code for many reasons, however the tiny clock motor only draws 3 watts, and you will remember to bring a white neutral wire to this timer at later date so you can sleep better at night.

How can onr tell if timer on Tork 1101 is not working?


Is the dial rotating?

1) Copy following link for Tork 1101 product wiring and manuals:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101

2) Tork 1101 120Volt timer uses #101 clock motor.
If clock motor is working, then dial rotates around clockwise once each 24 hours... assuming timer is wired correctly.

3) Jan 2013, Add a comment and say what you are wiring.

I have a tork 1101 and i want to conect a sumersible pump 1 hp 230 v single phase but i dont know how can you help me.


Tork 1101 has 120Volt clock motor.
So circuit needs a neutral wire, in addition to 240Volt circuit with 2 hot wires.
Make sure brass bridge or jumper wire connects terminals L and 1.

I have a Tork 1101 timer and up until now has worked fine. Now it won't shut off. The mechanical on/off tabs are set correctly. It turns on and as the timing wheel comes around, the shut off tab...


If clock is rotating on time, next suspect is P47 trippers have worn down. Trippers are made of softer metal so they wear down instead wearing down the on-off lever, and that way the timer lasts longer.

I have an Intermatic T103 DPST timer installed now (120v). The clock mechanism has failed. I bought Tork 1103 guts to replace it. The wiring is a bit different. Can u map for me which wires go to which...


T-103 has 120V clock motor with 5 terminals A 1 2 3 4
Tork 1101 has 120V clock motor with 4 terminals L 1 X 2

T103 is DPST and can control one-or-two 120Volt loads, or one-or-two 240Volt loads.
Tork 1101 is SPST can control one 120Volt load

Common ground between these timers one 120 Volt load
Changeover for one 120 Volt load:
White wires T103 terminal A go to Tork terminal X
Black wire T103 terminal 1 goes Tork terminals L and 1 (there is brass connector plate that connects L and 1 - if connector is missing, jumper between L and 1)
Black wire on T103 terminal 2 goes Tork terminal 2

If Load requirement is greater than T1101, Grainger sells T103 clock motor for $16

I have set the Tork 1101 timer as explained in the diagram but it isn't working. Is it supposed to be in any particular position to start? What might I be doing wrong?


Tork 1101 is 120V timer
I think you have your Load wires and Wires from breaker reversed?

Black Hot wire from breaker goes on Terminal L
There is brass bridge between terminal L and terminal 1
If this bridge is not there, the put a jumper wire between L and 1
White Neutral wire from breaker goes to terminal X
Black wire to Load goes on terminal 2
White wire to Load goes to terminal X

So 1 black on L
Jumper between L and 1
2 white wires on X
1 black on 2

If your black wires are reversed on the wrong pole, it can give the symptoms you describe.
If there is not a jumper between L and 1 then it can give same symptoms
If breaker is off
If Load (lights, fan motor) is burned out

If you still have problems, add a comment and I will respond

I have a Tork timer model number 1101 24 hr time switch. Can you tell me how to set it???


Tork 1101 is a 120V mechanical dial-type timer

c79f9b8.jpgTork 1100 series

To set timer, you lift and rotate dial. Line up current time with the word Time located to lower right of dial.

Next, place trippers on dial. Dark trippers are OFF and light-colored trippers are ON

Tork 1101 is 120V timer.
120V Black Hot wire from circuit breaker connects to Pole L
There is a brass bridge that connects Pole L and Pole 1 >> if this is missing, put a jumper wire that connects both Poles
120V White Neural wire from circuit breaker connects to Pole X
White wire going to Load (lights, fan, motor) connects to Pole X
Black wire going to Load connects to Pole 2

Up-vote if this information was helpful. Thanks for the feedback.

Hello can i get the instuctions for tork timer model 1191 please?


According to Intermatic conversion chart, Tork 1191 is same as Tork 1101.

Link to 1101 .pdf
Link to Tork manuals

Tork 1101 is dial-type mechanical timer. Dark pins turn OFF. Light pins turn ON.

Clock motor is 120V
Hot black wire from breaker connects to pole L
Neutral white wire from breaker connects to pole X
Removable bridge connects poles L &1 together
If bridge is gone, Hot from breaker must also connect to pole 1
Black wire to Load connects to pole 2
White wire to Load connects to pole X

Timer can control 240V Load if removable bridge between poles L and 1 is taken out.
Timer clock is still 120V: so 120V Hot still connects to pole L and neutral from breaker connect to poles X
240 V circuit has two hot lines: Hot line 1 and Hot line 2
240 volt Hot line 1 from breaker connects to pole 1
240 volt Hot line 1 to load connects to pole 2
240V Hot line 2 goes directly to Load and does not connect to any pole

I have a Tork 1101. I am confused by wiring diagram. Please help.


http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101

1) Tork 1101 has 120Volt clock motor, making this 120Volt timer.

2) 120Volt circuit has 1 black hot wire and 1 white neutral wire and 1 bare ground wire. Ground wires connect to green screw and to each other.

3) You have two cables, each cable has black, white and ground.
One cable arrives from breaker box.
One cable goes to Load (light, fan, motor, pump etc)

4) Cable arriving from breaker box:
a) Hot black connects to terminal L.
There should be a brass connector plate that connects terminals L and 1. If this plate is removed, then add a jumper wire from terminal L to terminal 1.
b) white connects to terminal X

5) Cable going to Load
a) Load black connects to terminal 2
b) Load white connects to terminal X along with other white wire.
