Tork 1101 dial not working


Tighten the center nut on dial and see if that works.
Following link has general troubleshoot... including flip breaker fully on and then fully off... .
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-timers.html#box
Check your wiring
Look if motor is running and turning the gears.
Stand on dry boards and wear insulated gloves when holding live electrical wiring.

Did you buy the 101 clock motor for 120 volt... or did they send the 201 for 240volt... look at marking on new motor.

How do I wire GE# 15351 24hr mechanical timer switch for 110 volt outdoor landscape lights


15351 is 240 Volt timer... requires 240 Volt to run clock motor.
You need a neutral wire to connect 120 Volt lights.

15351 has same wiring as Tork 1104

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.

I noticed the Tork 1104 timer box was not working. It does not make a sound. And the clock does not move. I measured the incoming and outgoing wires with a multimeter and both measure at 240V. I'm...


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

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

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.

Can i put 120 volts to the dry contacts on a tork dts400b timer?


1) DTS wiring shows on link below:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/1TORK.DTS400A.DZS400A.WIRING.pdf
Timer appears on page below:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-Digital-timers-and-manuals.html#DTS

2) Tork DTS400B is 4 channel timer, so you can control 4 different Loads with different programming for each Load.

3) I am not 100% certain what you are asking.
Timer can be wired for 120V operation.
Clock motor has separate wiring from Load wiring.

4) Clock motor is shown in wiring diagram as 'Timer supply'
Timer supply is on lower row of terminals.
120 Volt Hot connects to screw terminal identified as 120
120V Neutral connects to screw terminal identified as N
Clock motor wiring does not pass to the Load or channel terminals.

5) Load terminals are not fed by 120V connection to Timer supply.
Each load is wired separately.
For example lets say Load 1 is channel 1 or CH1.
Hot to CH1 connects to terminal C.
Neutral to CH1 connects to terminal NO, or to NC terminal.

6) Terminal NO normally open turns ON when timer turns ON
Terminals NC is normally closed is ON full time, except when timer tuns ON. So NC turns OFF when timer turns ON.

Tork 1104 is wired 120 vac. hot wire connected to L with jumper wire to 1.hot wire for outdoor lights connected to X. nuetral wires are wire nutted together. not connected to timer. clock not working....


The clock isn't working because the Tork 1104 clock motor requires 240 volts. Jumping the 120 volts over from terminal L to terminal 1 doesn't make it 240 volts. You need another 120 volt leg (180 degrees out of phase) to do that. The Tork 1103 timer is what you need, or change the 1104 clock motor to a 120 volt.

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 a tork 1101 SPST timer, I have 4 wires 2 black, 2 white. The timer has four screws L, 1, X, 2 with a bridge on L and 1. Can you please tell me where do the load wires go and the main wires...


This is for 120 volts ONLY. The incoming "main" black wire from the circuit breaker or source connects to terminal 1. Leave the bridge in place between L and 1. The outgoing black wire to the load connects to terminal 2. Both white wires connect to x.

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
