My model t101 keeps switching from manual off to manual on

The manual override is temporary until next tripper passes.
Trippers move the override back and forth.
Remove trippers from dial to use timer as on-off switch.

When setting my timers should the manual switch be left in the on or off position?

Either position is fine.
The override is not permanent ON or OFF since it moves back and forth when trippers pass.
The trippers push a lever back and forth that opens and closes electrical circuit.
When the lever moves back and forth, it also clicks the override back and forth with audible sound.
If the timer is ON, you can move the override to OFF.
When the next ON tripper rotates around, it will move the override back to ON.
So the override just temporarily overrides the timer function.

Hpm 24 hr manual timer , i dont know how to get it working

HPM 24 hour timer has segments located around dial.

Segments appear to move up or down.
Other similar timers: Segments down = Load ON; Segments up = Load OFF
Press several segments down.
Plug timer into wall.
Plug 240Volt load into timer.
Manually rotate timer dial clockwise to see if segments down turn load on or off.

There is also a 2-position slide-switch located on top of timer.
Move slide switch to each position to see which is need for timer to turn load on-off.

After positions are defined, push segments down or leave segments up for times you want load to turn on.
Rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Timer dial rotates as time passes, and segments move a plastic lever that turns load on and off

Brinks 44-1040 is a 24-hour plug-in timer, with 1 on tripper and 1 off tripper.
Dial has 24 hours with each hour marked for am and pm times.

Push tripper down and rotate until tripper aligns with time you want for ON and OFF.

Turn lamp ON. Make sure bulb is good.
Plug lamp into timer. and plug timer into wall.

Move switch other direction, and timer programs work.

If this is not your timer, add a comment

Open link below to view all Woods timers and manuals, to identify product:

Several folks have been writing in about Woods timers that don't come with instructions.
Or instructions say click switch and there is no switch.

Woods 59204 is dial-type timer has tiny segments located around edge of dial.
Segments pushed out = timer ON
Segments pushed inward = timer OFF
> Dial rotates as time passes
To set current time, rotate dial clockwise until current hour lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Small switch is located in upper right, above dial.
Move switch to timer ON for timer programs to operate.

If your timer does not have switch, I suspect this could be promotional timer.
Woods sells different timers packaged under different numbers & brands.
Try timer without 'switch' and then add a comment with information to assist others with same problem.

Woods timers sometimes have more than 1 model number for same timer, depending on who packaged and sold timer.

Also see lost of Woods timers where you might recognized photo of your model:

To program Woods timers with segments:
Rotate dial until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial
Segments around outer edge of dial lift up.
Use fingernail, or small screwdriver to lift up segments when you want timer to turn OFF.
Leave segments down for times you want timer ON.
Slide switch located on top of timer is manual override.
Move switch to ON position when you want lights ON full time.
Move switch other direction for timer program to operate.
Timer dial rotates with passing time.
Program repeats each 24 hours.
Table lamp must be turned ON for timer to function.
If timer doesn't work, check receptacle for power, check that lamp is turned ON, and check that bulb is good.

Pump runs 5 minutes and stops

Move the slide switch to ON.
Open following link for recirculation system resources.

The recirculation can work on either the timer or the thermostat using slide switch located next to the timer dial.
First of all, look to see if dial is rotating as time passes.
Next look at position of slide switch. If switch is moved to 'timer,' then the timer controls the on-off function for pump.
Move the pins located on timer dial to control on-off times.
If the switch is moved to ON, then the thermostat controls the pump, and turns on until temperature in pipe reaches 94 or 100 degrees F approximately. I forget exact cutoff temp.

Intermatic model T1O4R stopped working. time dial does not move

Can you turn the load ON and OFF with the manual switch? If not, the circuit breaker supplying the timer has probably tripped. Turn the breaker OFF, then back ON. Sometimes a breaker will trip, but it looks like it's still ON.
If you are getting 240 volts at the timer from the breaker, and if you can also manually turn the clock dial, then the timer motor is bad.

Timer will lock up when it gets to the off switch...

Sounds like you have the timer motor feeding through the points, be sure to have incoming power to timer motor so it is hot even when the timer is in the off cycle. If this does not help please post a model number and I will try to be more specific.
