Question about Intermatic T101 - 24 Hr. Dial Time Switch - NEMA 1 Indoor Steel Case - Gray

1 Answer

Timer doesn't run; should I wire the arrow shown in some way?

I have wired it according to the diagram...but the wire coming from the pool pump back to plug #2 then shows it going towards the timer line coming from plug #1...but it only shows an arrow...doesn't show it connecting. As a result, the pool pump works fine when I manually switch the lever on and off...but the timer doesn't run...HELP!! Have II missed wiring some connection and what in the world does the arrow on the wire indicate?

The arrows mean that it goes on to what its controlling. the ones that don't have arrows are the ones that the line or hot wires hook to.

that means u hook the wires going to ur pump to the ones with the arrows and the wires coming to the timer hook to the other ones.

How do I connect my Jandy AE-TI heat pump to my intermatic T104P3


1) Copy following link for wiring illustration ... assuming timer is supposed to control pool pump:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T104-to-contactor.jpg

2) T104P is 240Volt (208-277V) SPDT timer in P plastic outdoor enclosure.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T104

3) Jandy AE-TI is 208/230V pool heater.
http://www.bestbuypoolsupply.com/media/aemanual.pdf

4) Page 13 of Jandy manual shows single-phase residential wiring diagram.

5) First of all, power to main contactor is not interruped by timer, since this powers 24Volt transformer that controls the chip board and general operation.

6) The timer is connected to 'Auto-heat contactor.'
The confusion is what Load connects to this contactor? The water pump? Load is shown on diagram as 'pump time clock.'
I assume the load is the PUMP??

Wiring motor hot tub


The wiring diagram should show on side of motor.
Here is basic motor wiring:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Motor-wiring-500.jpg
Test each lead as shown in following image. In the case of 240Volt, the 2nd wire is not Neutral, but testing is same.

If you have 2 speed motor, then you will have switch or timer controlling the speed:

Just intstalled a T104M according to the diagram and all the diagrams found on the web. The clock timer doesn't work. I can manually shut off the pump from the timer. I thought it was a bad tim


T104M is 208-277 timer mechanism that fits inside any Intermatic enclosure.
If voltage is not correct, then clock motor will not operate.
Since you did not say what voltage, I assume you have 240Volt pool pump.
Open following link to see the many ways to wire this timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html
It is possible that you have the Load and Line wires reversed.
Line wire come from circuit breaker, and Load wires go to pump.

If the T104M mechanism is part of a control panel with more than one timer, and/or a freeze control, then re-post question with more specific information.

Does the pump come with the wiring set up for high voltage? I am referring to the brown and white internal wires. Pentair Challenger 346206. thank you


If you look at the wiring diagram on the motor plate it will show you where these wires go for 220v power, and where they go for 110v Power. If you know the supply voltage just place these wires as shown on the diagram and you should be fine.

No. I don't have a wiring schematic without knowing what voltage you are using, specifically what Intermatic timer you have, specifically what wires you have coming from breaker box, what wires are on the pump, and what pump rating plate says, what the wiring diagram shows on side of pump, whether you are wiring a 2-speed pump to a single-speed timer, specifically what is the polaris timer clock, and why this pump needs two timers if that's what you mean.
Add a comment with specific information so electrician is not guessing.

Fixya does not sell Intermatic P1353 timer. We answer questions for do-it-yourselfers like yourself.
Open following link for Intermatic P1353 manuals with wiring and programming diagrams.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#P1353

1) It is very likely that pump wires will change over color-for-color, but I am electrician and would never do that because I would not want to burn out my new motor without poking around first. I would look at manual for old motor and compare with manual for new motor. I would certainly read the new manual and compare where wires are connected to timer.

2) As a general rule with P1353 timer, High speed connects to terminal 4. Low speed connects to terminal 6. The remaining wire connects to terminal 3 with a jumper wire to terminal 5.

3) This information applies only if you are replacing a 2-speed pump, and timer was wired by diagrams shown in the manual, and timer is correctly programmed for MODE2 2-speed pump.

4) You can add a comment for more free help. I will answer back. I know this timer front and back, it is complicated for novice. And you should remember that I do not know what is inside your pump manual unless you tell me, and I do not read minds.

5) You can also pay for fixya expert to work with you while you work on pump.

Installing a outdoor timer t104m this is for the pool cleaner,need wireing instruction.next to pool pump timer.


Open following link for wiring diagrams and manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

240Volt T104 can be wired many different ways.
What is the significance of 'next to the pool pump timer?'
Are you getting power off the 240V pool pump timer to operate the new T104? This is perfectly fine. The pool pump wires would bring power from the breaker box.
Is the new T104 going to control 120Volt lights? The timer can do that, it just has to be wired correctly.
In any case, the T104 has 240Volt (or 277V) clock motor, and clock will not operate with 120V

If you add specific details, I can help with exact wiring diagram for your project.

I have a 110 Pool Pump and I am trying to wire it into a Tork1103NC timer. From the pool pump I have a black, white and green wire that I need to wire into the timer. Can you tell me what position those...


0fde0d6.jpg

Here is Tork 1103 wired for single load.

1) The green pump wire and bare copper wire go to green ground screw
2) Pump black wire goes to pole 2, the NO (normally open) pole
3) Pump white wire goes to unmarked screw

4) Black from circuit breaker goes to pole L
The T1103 comes with a removable brass bar that connects pole L and pole 1
If that removable brass bar is not there, then add a jumper between pole L and pole 1 as shown in diagram above
5) White neutral from breaker box goes to unmarked pole (all whites connect to unmarked pole)

In your case, pole X is not used. Pole X is NC or normally closed > which means the power is ON continuously until timer turns on, and when timer turns ON, the NC pole turns OFF
