Is this a used timer?
8141-00 is 120 volt timer.
Is your 120 volt Hot wire on terminal 3 and Neutral on terminal X?
Test across 3 and x for 120 volt.

Don't buy used defrost timers... they always look good when you inspect, but never work when connected... that's why the timer was taken out of service and sold as used timer.
Save the old trippers for use on new timer.

    You can disconnect compressor on terminal #N and run jumper over to heater on terminal #1. This would run the defrost heater.

Paragon 8141-00 defrost timer wont turn.


One of my first questions is has it worked at all.? If not, probably the wiring is backwards. They generally are good timers. If it has, you may have the power leg to it tripped. Turn off both legs and then back on. This should take care of it. Next , probably the motor. Get a whole new timer. Not worth the savings and effort to fool with it.

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:

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

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

Intermatic cross reference shows that T-103 is replacement for 4003-00
http://www.intermatic.com/customer%20service/competitive%20cross%20reference.aspx

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T103
T-103 has 120Volt clock motor and can control 1 or 2 - 120V loads or 1 - 240Volt load

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

I have a paragon 8145-20 defrost timer. do you wire the compressor to the timer? I cant seem to find a wiring diagram on how to wire this correctly


Link below has wiring diagrams and wiring manuals for 240V 8145-20
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#defrost

I am not expert installing defrost timers.
According to information from Paragon, 8145 is for hot gas defrosting. 8140 series are time initiated, and pressure-or-temperature terminated.
Wiring diagram does not show compressor wired to timer.

The cycle works like this:
Timer is running but defrost is not switched ON.
Fan is ON.
Timer switches ON and activates defrost cycle.
Fan turns OFF. Hot gas valve turns ON for defrosting.
Cycle limit switch is temperature or pressure sensitive.
Cycle limit switch reaches trip point, timer switches OFF.
Hot gas valve turns OFF. Fan turns ON.
So fan is off during defrost cycle.
Hot gas valve turns ON when timer switches ON.
Timer is switched OFF by pressure-or-temperature limit switch.

We have an AMF Paragon 4001 timer for the light outside our building. The light goes on lately at the wrong time. We want it to be on at 7:00pm and off and 5:00am but it goes on at 12:00 at noon.


To set paragon timer: Pull large round dial straight out towards you, then rotate dial until correct time is lined up with stationary 'pointer' on front of dial

On a Paragon 8145-20 Defrost Timer, I know you land the refrigeration circuit on terminal 4, the heater on terminal 3, but what goes on terminal "X" and terminal "N"


Link below has 8145-20 wiring diagram:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#defrost

Terminal N is 2nd wire needed to complete circuit.
In 240V 8145-20, there are two hot wires.
One Hot connects to terminal 1, with jumper to terminal 2.
Second Hot connects to terminal N, and this will power the clock motor and timer.
Terminal X is for temperature or pressure termination switch.

Defrost cycle works like this:
Timer is running but switched OFF.
Refrigeration fan is ON.
Timer switches ON, defrost cycle begins.
Refrigeration fan turns OFF.
Hot gas defrost turns ON.
When temperature-or-pressure limit switch reaches trip point, it switches timer OFF.
Refrigeration fan turns ON again.
Hot gas defrost turns OFF.

Set defrost timer on Paragon Electric Defrost-O-Matic


If the air flow and temperature are not being compromised leave it alone. If there is a gradual build up of ice on the evaporator you may have a defrost element or defrost limit switch problem. Set the defrost duration duration to 45 minutes and see if that solves the icing problem. 4 defrost cycles a day should be enough to keep the icing problem at bay. 3 defrost cycles at night about 1 hour apart may also remedy the problem. Experiment until you find the right combination of defrost cycles for your freezer. Watch for any thawing of the product in the freezer and adjust accordingly.
