Intermatic T101 does not turn on using the on tripper. It turns on manually and turns off with the off tripper. How do you fix the on tripper?

There are two different trippers. 'On' and 'off'. The off will not turn it on. Get an 'on' tripper.

I need trippers for timer paragon 4001-00m


1) Paragon is no longer making X2772 trippers for the 4000 series timer.
Some places may still sell the X2772 tripper.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#4000

2) I saw X2772 trippers for $60 spring 2011. And the ad did not say the trippers were new.

3) Buy replacement T101 Intermatic timer for less than that.
Example at Amazon showing T101 indoor timer: For outdoor timer, buy T101R.
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-T101-Hour-Dial-Timer/dp/B00002N5FN

4) Crossover wiring from Paragon 4001-00 to Intermatic T101:
Paragon terminal 1 goes to Intermatic 1
Paragon terminal 2 goes to Intermatic 2
Paragon terminal 3 goes to Intermatic A

I need a set of trippers for a Paragon timer Model number 4001-00. Where can I get them. Thank you. My name is Jim Vivone


Google search for X2772 tripper and some places may still have them.

Paragon is no longer making timers and parts except defrost timers.
Paragon 4001-00 120Volt timer uses X2772 tripper:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#4000

Paragon 4001-00 crossover to Intermatic is T101 120Volt timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

Crossover wiring:
Paragon 4001-00 has terminals 1 2 3
T101 has terminals A 1 2

Paragon terminal 1 connects to Intermatic terminal 1
Paragon terminal 2 connects to Intermatic terminal 2
Paragon terminal 3 connects to Intermatic terminal A

Apparently, the spring under the timer dial on my 4001 timer has been broken and the timer will no longer trip the trippers. Can this be fixed? It is a nearly-new unit and I like it.


Open following link for Paragon resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#4000

Individual parts are not sold except for X2772 tripper.
Move the manual override lever back and forth and see if load turns on-off.
Watch if on-and-off trippers are moving override lever back and forth, to see if problem is a worn tripper instead of broken spring.

Replacement 4001-00 timers are sold, even though Paragon is no longer making timers except defrost timers.
http://www.mdappliance.com/RBS-4001-00.html?mv_pc=00015
Replacement timer is Intermatic T101

I need a set of trippers for a Paragon 4001 switch timer. Need both "On " and "off" trippers. Can you find some?


Paragon 4000 series timers uses X2772 tripper
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html

Google search x2772 tripper
Frontier Lighting shows they are out.
A couple other places show 56-60 dollars for the tripper

In November 2010, I got e-mail from Paragon saying that Paragon stopped making timers and parts for timers, except for defrost timers. 4001 is not defrost timer.

Intermatic has cross-reference link if you want to buy new timer:
http://www.intermatic.com/customer%20service/competitive%20cross%20reference.aspx
Cross reference shows T-101 timer matches your timer.

Aplus supply sells T101 for $60
http://www.aplussupply.com/intermatic/timer.htm
Amazon sells T101 for 43$ with free shipping over 25$

Intermatic T101 timer


T101 timer is strictly 120Volt timer
Wiring and manual show on following link
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

See another image of wiring:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T-101-control-120V-Load-450.jpg

Amazon sells T101:
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-T101-Hour-Dial-Timer/dp/B00002N5FN

If timer is not functioning, add a comment.

Grainger sells 125V clock motor and tripper for T100 series timers.
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi
If manual override does not turn Load ON, and the lever snaps crisp and clean, then check electric circuit. Check if load is operable.
If override does not snap crisp and clean, then timer may be worn out.
If dial does not rotate, replace clock motor.
If dial rotates but does not click override back and forth, then replace trippers.

How T101 works:
Lift and rotate dial until current time lines up with silver pointer
Clock motor rotates dial.
ON-OFF trippers attached outer edge of dial contact a lever.
ON tripper pushes lever one direction.
Off tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
Lever opens and closes electrical contacts.
Lever also pushes manual override lever back and forth with audible click.

I get lights when I turn the switch to on but as the timer advances, it doesn't trip and turn the timer on


You posted under Intermatic T101 timer.
Add a comment if timer is different.

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101
1) If this is new timer installation, it sounds like black wires on terminals 1 and 2 are reversed.
Other cause could be the ON-OFF trippers not positioned on timer dial

2) If this is old timer that worked before, then tripper pins could be worn down.

How do I reset the time needle on my intermatic modle t101 The screw was loose and the needle move so


T101 Intermatic is 120Volt electro-mechanical timer

Silver pointer is located at 6:00 position.
Tighten the center screw with star screwdriver
Lift and rotate yellow dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.

geno_3245_71.jpg

How electro-mechanical timers work:
Place ON-OFF trippers on dial.
Trippers rotate around with passing time.
Trippers encounter on-off lever.
OFF tripper clicks lever one direction.
ON tripper clicks lever other direction.
Manual override lever clicks back and forth each time on-off lever is clicked.
