Pool pump clock


T104M used WG1573 clock motor:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-Intermatic-timer.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-Intermatic-clock-motor.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#T100
The timer mechanism has metal gears, while the clock motor has plastic gears. If the metal gears get dirty and bind, it will strip the plastic gears.
Turn off power, pull timer out of box, Clean out timer with compressed air, and spray WD40, add a bit of white grease to lever where trippers make contact, then replace clock motor ... and buy another set of trippers to have on-hand since they are designed to wear down so timer will last longer.
If timer body is broken so dial does not rotate, then buy new T104 and snap new mechanism into old box. Buying whole T104 with enclosure is cheaper than buying T104M mechanism only.

The supplier that fiited my swimmimng pools timers never gave me the booklet on how to set the time.


1) Unknown brand name pool timer, probably Intermatic:
Unknown if this is mechanical timer, or digital, or remote control, or air activated. Or if this is control center with circuit breakers and multiple timers to control heater, and pool pump, or if unit has firemans switch to turn pool heater off 20 minutes before pool pump, or if unit has freeze protection thermostat, etc

Manual for intermatic timer part no. 2T511GA


2T511GA is an Intermatic enclosure (or box)
2T511GA is a grey standard Indoor/Outdoor Nema3R metal enclosure.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Intermatic-Enclosures.pdf

Any intermatic box timer will fit into the enclosure.
Tork makes the IAP adapter so Tork/ GE timers will also fit into same enclosure.
This includes digital timer and analog timers made by both companies.
To find the exact manual, add a comment and describe the timer and number of terminals, and what voltage is being used, and what you are controlling with the timer. For example 6 screw terminals A 1 2 3 4 and controlling 2-speed 240 pool pump. etc.
Also copy following link to identify timer and download manual:

How to ground a Tork EW103B time switch wired for 240Volt since there is no ground lug in the plastic housing or on the body of the timer itself


Many plastic timer enclosures do not have ground screw.
Simply join the ground wires inside wiring space using wire nut.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-Digital-timers-and-manuals.html#ew

Since the timer mechanism is plastic, it is non-conductive.
It's like using all-plastic electric drill. The drill does not have ground wire because the electrical components are housed completely in non-conductive plastic.

You can buy the Tork 9000A metal Nema3R enclosure if grounding is preferred. Or buy Intermatic 2T511GA metal Nema3R enclosure plus buy Tork IAP adapter to fit Intermatic enclosures.
Choose the metal enclosures when conduit needs to be supported and timer could be hit by some object.

The non-grounded box and non-grounded timer is also true of GE digital timers 15132 and 15136. Which coincidentally have same wiring as EW103 when using 240Volt.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-GE-15132-timer.html

However the Tork DTU40 timer has ground screw >>> but the timer is not grounded, so ground screw is merely for joining wires together.

An electrician installed a new Tork 1103 24 hr timer for the pool pump. You can only manually turn it on and off. When trying to set the time, the dial is loose and does not stay in position and does not...


I think you have 120Volt pool pump.
Add a comment if this is incorrect since wiring information is based on this assumption.

(1) Wiring problem:
Evidence shows timer is wired in reverse (dial only rotates when pump is ON, and dial stops rotating when pool pump is OFF)
Electrician reversed the wires, but wires need to be tested.
Hot wire from circuit breaker always connects to L
Neutral wire from breaker box connects to unmarked terminal.
This will give clock motor continuous power.
Next:
Black wire going to Load (pump) connects to X
White wire going to Load connects to unmarked terminal along with Neutral wire.

Tork 1103 is SPDT timer with 3 watt 120volt clock motor that can control multiple loads and voltages, and can be wired many different ways.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/1103INSTALLOP.pdf

(2) Loose dial. The dial should only rotate counterclockwise when moved with hand. The fact that trippers work when rotated by hand says dial is probably not problem. If timer is used, and trippers skip over and do not turn on Load (pump) then order P47 replacement trippers.

Could be loose wiring, or bad clock motor.
Check if wires are connected, and make sure only the copper part of wire and no insulation is under the screw plate.
Make sure all wires are same gauge so that screw plate clamps down on wires.
Open following link to identify timer and then add a comment with model number and voltage for possible help. Tork T1100 series has replacement clock motor.

The right side is for the pool sweep. The timer wheel doesn't move around and keep in time with the left side which is for the pool.


If timer wheel doesn't rotate on time, then clock motor is probably bad.
Probably the wheel is getting stalled a bit when tripper comes into contact with on-off lever, because motor has lost power.
Add a bit of grease where tripper come into contact with on-off lever.
Intermatic T104 is 240Volt clock motor
Buy T100 series 240V clock motor from grainger:
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi

Notice also that link above also shows extra trippers.
Trippers are designed to wear down before on-off lever, so timer mechanism lasts longer.

To install clock motor, snap mechanism out of box using thumb spring at top.
Motor is attached with 2 small star screws.
Notice that motor has plastic gears so motor is designed to stop working before rest of timer.
Motor wires attach to terminals 1 and 3, tighten screws very tight against copper wire.
Make sure no part of the wire insulation is under screw plate when tightening.

Tork timer "time clock motor"kaput...someone set


You posted under Tork 8601 timer:
I don't think that clock motor is sold separately.
New timer costs 115 at Chapman:
http://shop.chapmanelectric.com/tork-8601-minute-120v-spdt-p-2361-l-en.html

120Volt Tork clock motor that fits some models is sold at frontier for $43:
http://www.frontierlighting.com/product.jsp?part=10431&process=search&show=&ID=,Photo.Cells...Time.Controls,Replacement.Motors

Usually the clock motor is held with 2 screws and then wires attach to screw terminals.
Look close at your screw terminals to see clock wires.
Normally timer mechanism snaps out of box and clock motor is on back of mechanism.

I have a tork 1103 electromechanical switch. its working but wont


T1103 can be wired many ways.
T1103 has 240V clock motor.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101

You are connecting 240Volt pool pump to timer.
Open link below and see wiring diagram: look at bottom left diagram:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/110111021103WIRING.pdf

Electricians don't guess, they test.
Turn power off and separate wires for testing.
Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power.
Stand on dry boards. Wear dry clothes.
Do not touch anything metal.
Turn power ON.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
For 240V circuit, two different wires should light up tester. Working from your description, by code, these wires should be black and red.
Each of these wires is Hot wire.
These are called Line wires, wires going to pump are called Load wires.
Hot wires connect to terminals L and 1. This will power the clock motor and dial will rotate as time passes, assuming clock motor is good.

Hots are identified.
Test one of the hot wires to remaining wire, and not to bare ground.
Tester lights up on Neutral wire. This should be white wire.
Double check that Neutral wire did not light up on bare ground.
Neutral is not connected to any 1103 terminal.

Remaining wires go to Load (pool pump).
By code, assuming Hot Lines are Red and Black, the Red & Black Load wires connect to X terminal and 2 terminal, in either order. One wire on each terminal.
White wire connects to Neutral wire and is covered with wire nut.
