Grasp the timer wheel and pull out toward you and rotate it to the correct time (line up time with the arrow). Now put the off and on actuators on the wheel at the on & off times that you want, that's it!

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.

I need instructions on how to set my Grasslin Intermatic FM1 STUZH 120 timer


Open following links for analog timer instructions:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-set-timers.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#FM

FM1STUZH-120 is 120Volt 24 hour timer with manual override button.
Each tripper-or-pin on timer dial represents 15 minutes.
The timer can be set for several different purposes.
Since the timer has manual override and NO NC terminals, the best way to proceed is to wire your timer, turn power ON, move 10 trippers-or-pins outward, leave rest of pins inward, then manually rotate dial to watch when load turns on-off. Then move override switch to each of 3 positions and repeat same test.
These actions will reveal correct wiring and switch setting for your purpose.

Image that shows with this post is Woods model #49647.
Below are instructions for #49647 timer.

If your timer is different, add a comment with model number and I'll post instructions for that timer.

Woods model #49647 is outdoor timer with photoelectric control that turns timer ON at dusk.
There are 4 possible settings that show on dial.
Rotate dial to make timer selection.

Dusk-Dawn = timer turns ON at dusk and OFF at dawn
2, 4, 6, 8 hours = timer turns ON at dusk, and turns OFF 2, 4, 6, or 8 hours later.

My Tork 1103 timer is used at my office building to set the lights outside for security. My maintence person sets them, then all of a sudden they are wacky and come on at the wrong time. I would like to...

This is probably very similar to your timer.
The Tork 1100 series is electro-mechanical timer.
Lift and rotate dial to set current time.
Line up current time with the word Time located to lower right of dial.
The trippers are black and silver.
I think the black is OFF and silver is ON
Clock motor rotates dial as time passes.
Trippers contact a lever.
Off tripper pushes lever one way.
On tripper pushes lever other way.
The manual override clicks back and forth as trippers move lever.
To check function of timer, click manual override
Common problems:
1) Clock motor is not rotating dial
2) Trippers get stuck on lever and can't move lever because timer is dirty or worn out, or clock motor is bad.
3) Trippers are worn down and won't trip the lever.

Replacement of these timers is simple
Check out the functions and problems and then answer this post and I will help more if needed

I don't know how to set the timer to come on a 7 pm, off at 11 pm. It is a tork 1103 electromechanical timer. Directions lost years ago and new homeowners (myself) do not know how to set the timer. Anne


See T1100 Tork timer on following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101

To set this timer, rotate clock dial clockwise until current time lines up with the word 'TIME' located at 5 o'clock position.
Place black and gold P47 trippers at times you want timer to turn on-and-off.
As time passes, the dial rotates. ON tripper flips a lever that turns Load ON, and then later, the OFF tripper flips same lever and turns Load OFF.
