SOURCE: Tork Timer 1101 Noisey!!

Spray gears with WD40. And blow out timer with air. Turn off power: WD40 vapor is highly flammable accelerant.
Do not spray WD40 on live electric connections or hot surface.
Install timer on non-wood surface so sound does not resonate sound like a wood violin.

You can also buy replacement clock motor #101 for about $48.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101

Or buy the T1101M replacement mechanism for $59 and screw into current box, or buy whole new T1101 with the box for about $53 and just use the new mechanism.

Or replace with new Intermatic T101 timer for $45 at Smarthome.

Tork L&1 to Intermatic 1
Tork 2 to Intermatic 2
Tork x to Intermatic A

Danfoss 103 timer is making a constant buzzing noise!!...everything's works fine but I want to stop this buzzing noise. Any actions I should take or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.


How much wattage is going through the timer and what is its rated load max? try unplugging whatever is plugged into it and see if it stops but if you exceeded the max load might be damage to the internals which can cause that buzz.

No display stop working. it controls a fan lite, the lite is on in a dimmed mode, no fan function.


Question posted under Tork SS720 timer.
I don't have repair for defective timer that worked before and stopped working.
If this is new timer, then add a comment and explain wiring in exact detail, and include what you mean by 'dimmed' mode.

Timers have 1 year limited warranty.
Timers are affected by line noise, and generally cannot be connected to a dimmer.

SS720A timer is robust 120Volt single-pole 7-day programmable timer, rated for 15Amp up to 1 HP.
The larger the amp load, the shorter the lifespan for electrical devices.

Last step troubleshoot for programmable timer is to reset timer and reprogram.
Reset timer by pushing in reset button for several seconds.
If functionality is not restored, then timer has gone bad.

Tork SS720 is identical to GE15071 timer sold at Home Depot.
Buy another timer, and return defect in new package.

13 years is good run for clock motor. Timer will last longer than clock motor.

Tork 1104 has 240Volt clock motor

Frontier lighting sells the >> 120V Tork motor: List price 40.33/ your price 45.49
So 120Volt replacement motor costs as much as new replacement timer

Crossover wiring from 1104 to T104.
Tork L goes to Intermatic 1
Tork 1 goes to Intermatic 3
Tork x goes to Intermatic 2
Tork 2 goes to Intermatic 4
Intermatic A is not used unless you have neutral wire or 277V
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

GE sells the same 240Volt Tork timer under GE model 15307 in indoor-outdoor enclosure available at Home Depot for $59.00. Year 2011, GE does not pay US income tax, but takes US profits and pays tax in foreign nations. No replacement clock motor is available, but crossover wiring is same.

I have a Tork 1101. Please advise how to set the OFF time.


Tork 1101 is 24-hour 120Volt mechanical dial timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101

ON-OFF trippers are placed on outer edge of dial to set on-off times.
These tripper click on-off lever back and forth.
Trippers wear out since they are intentionally made of softer metal than on-off lever

Frontier lighting carries P47 tork 1101 replacement trippers
http://www.frontierlighting.com/product.jsp?part=3495&process=search&show=&
Make sure these trippers match yours before ordering

NSI is responsible for Tork.

Electro-mechanical timers make audible click noise when timer turns on-off.
T1101 spring is the time-carryover for power outage.

Buy another Tork T1101 and swap out insides without changing box:
Take photo of wiring before making changeover.

How to set a tork timer?


Tork makes a page-full of timers.

Rotate dial until current time lines up with arrow, then set the pins as shown in photo below

1) If timer plugs into wall receptacle, it has pins around the dial.
2) If timer replaced a wall switch it also has pins around dial.

GE and Woods and Tork and Intermatic each make similar timers.
Pull and push the pins to set times.
The wall-switch type timer also has a switch >>> move switch to Timer

Up-vote if this information helped. Thanks for the feedback.

4) Intermatic cross reference shows replacement is T-101 indoor/non-weathertight
Amaxon sells T101 for 43$:

5) Raintight/outdoor: Aplus and Lowes sell raintight outdoor T-101R for $71
