As a plumber, I would say you are better of getting rid of the timer. You aren't saving yourself much money at all using it, we're talking $50 a year at most. They usually wind up causing more trouble than they are worth.

That being said,
According to e-mail I got from Paragon last month, Paragon is no longer making timers or timer parts. Except for defrost timers. 4000 series is not a defrost timer.
This explains why some sellers of these trippers are asking $50 or more for $3 pair of trippers.

To change your timer to Intermatic.

Here is a wide selection of water heater timers, electro-mechanical and digital:

I recommend simple 240Volt Intermatic WH-40 for price and reliability. Drawback is minimum 1 hour on-off.
Or Intermatic T-101 for 120Volt heater or T-104 for 240Volt heaters sold at Lowes.
Intermatic trippers and motors are available and interchangeable, and are made of steel.

Some new timers are made with plastic parts:
GE 15207 is universal 120V 240V and sold at Home Depot.
Tork has new universal electro-mechanical timer, TU-40 for 120 and 240 applications

I use GE 15070 in-wall timer from Home Depot for my water heater because I change times frequently and try to shave every dollar:

Paragon model 8141-00 defrost timer wont turn.


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

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.

I need a tripper for my hot water heater timer... It is paragon model TC2 series A883-20. Can you advise?


I've read an expert here say that Paragon is out of *this* business now and that they are making defrost timers exclusively. I'm not so sure about this however. I would contact Paragon directly to learn if they have trippers available still for your timer.

If not - they may have suggestions for a direct replacement timer that would fit into your existing timer box. I have replaced several this way as it is preferable than removing cables, etc. when the exterior box itself is fine.

Good luck!

Have been in our home for 25 years. Paragon 4001-00 is located at top of stairs, right outside of our bedroom, and we have no idea what it controls. No lights come on automatically, either outside or...


Find the circuit breaker that operates the timer.
Turn off that breaker.
Open the timer box.
Disconnect black wire from terminal 1 screw, and put wire nut or plastic tape over end of wire.
This will stop the timer, and then you can see what the timer is used for by watching what is not working.
Is the timer connected to a water heater?
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#4000

If timer is connected to water heater, move black wire that was connected to terminal 1, and connect it with wire on terminal 2. This will by-pass the timer, and the water heater will be on all the time.

If you need new timer that makes less noise, then buy electronic timer.
Paragon 4001-00 is simple 120V timer, so replace with Intermatic EH10 120V electronic timer.
Amazon sells EH10:

Please add a comment for more detailed information.
I have extensive knowledge of these timers, and can help.

My hot water heater timer must be obsolete... It is paragon model TC2 series A883-20. It looks as though the trippers X2772 would work. Can you advise?


Paragon is no longer making timers and parts, except defrost timers.
I've seen X2772 trippers selling for $50-60

Can I suggest a replacement water heater timer:
Link below shows variety of water heater timers (including Paragon products, Intermatic, Tork, GE, Sylvania, Woods). Page has wiring diagrams and manuals.

Look at label on side of tank to see if heater is 120V or 240V

I have a Paragon model 4004-20 Water Heater Timer and I moved the TIME arrow. Now the water heater is not working at all. I am thinking of just restoring full time power to the water heater. I did not...


You are not supposed to move the time arrow.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html

4000 series time arrow is pointed at 8:00.
geno_3245_97.jpg
To set current time, lift and rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with pointer.
Put X2772 trippers on dial at times you want water heater to turn on.
Minimum on-off with Paragon 4000 is 1-1/2 hours because trippers are so fat.
You can replace 4000 timer with electronic timer and control exact on-off down to the minute:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Boxtype.html

Electric water heater heats about 21 gallons of water per hour.
Shower uses 6-9 gallons hot water.
Bath uses 10-12 gallons hot water.
Average water heater that is not connected to timer, runs about 3 hours a day. You can make timer pay off by keeping time schedule lower than 3 hours.
