SOURCE: Set defrost timer on Paragon Electric Defrost-O-Matic

the problem is not necessarily with the timer. it seems you have more than ample time and time allocations to perform a complete defrost. most walk ins should have roughly 25-40 minutes of defrost every 4 to 8 hours. if you defrost with a heating element, you may have a problem with the strength of the element,or the element may be pulled away from the coil. you could also have a problem with the defrost thermostat(allowing the defrost to terminate prematurely)

Defrost timer 8145-20 goes to defrost end fans go out end heather go in but compresor will not stop


Is this a hot gas bypass defroster with a switching valve? If so, the compressor should be on.

Model 4001-ov trips the circuit breaker.


Assuming you have Paragon 4001 40 amp 120Volt timer
By-pass the timer so only pool pump is connected to breaker.
To do this, move wire from terminal 2 and connect to terminal 1.
If breaker no longer trips, then replace timer with Intermatic T101
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101
Crossover wiring: Paragon terminal 1 goes to Intermatic terminal 1.
Paragon terminal 2 to Intermatic terminal 2.
Paragon terminal 3 to Intermatic terminal A
If breaker keeps tripping after bypassing timer, then tighten wires on circuit breaker and test again.
If breaker keeps tripping, then move wires to another same-size breaker.

Breakers trip when they sense overheating.
If motor is causing problem, you might need electrician to track down source of overheating.

I WANT TO BYPASS THE DEFROST MODE IN MODEL 8145-20


Unsure what you are trying to do.
Open following link to see how this timer works and how to wire it.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#8145

If you want to by-pass defrost cycle, remove trippers from dial and timer will not enter defrost state.
Or remove wire that is connected to terminal 3.

I am looking for a source to replace timer motors and silver contacts on a bunch of paragon 8025 24 hour timers.


http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#defrost

According to e-mail I got from Paragon in Nov 2010, Paragon is no longer making timers and parts.
Except for defrost timers.

I don't know how narrow the Paragon defrost line has become, if they still making their commercial refrigeration timers, or if they're just making smaller refrigerator defrost timers.
Or if Paragon has parts for the 8025

Hello I need to replace a paragon model 4003-0 can you tell me what is compatable to this model? thanks maury


As you probably know, Paragon is no longer making timers and parts except defrost timers.
4003-00 is not a defrost timer
4003-00 is DPST 120Volt timer 24-hour mechanical timer
Paragon timers and manuals

Intermatic cross reference shows that T-103 is replacement for 4003-00

I need a three phase wiring diagram for 8145-20 model timer.


8145-20 240Volt Paragon timer is not 3-phase.
Clock motor is 240V.
You need a transformer to convert 3-phase to single phase 240V to operate timer.
Then timer outputs can control 3-phase power using 3-phase contactors
Contactor below is 3 phase with 240V coil

Defrost timer wiring diagrams show below:
