Question about Intermatic & Indoor/Outdoor Rain Tight Timer

1 Answer

Clock not working

I install a T101R -120V. unit to control the driveway pole light. the wiring is done as per the diagram, the timer works when the switch in the on position (light is also On) as it turns to the off position the gears of the timer stop working and the clock does not move at all. I changed the entire unit with the same problem. I recheck the wiring. I even check the wiring in the unit that controls the pool pumps and they seam to be the same. What is going on wiring is correct.

The white wires that come from the clock need to be connected to both of the "line" terminals. If you have them connected to the "load" side, it will cut power to the clock once it turns off and it won't turn on again... hope this helps...

I am replacing a intermatic t101r with a tightwatt timer. the t101r has 5 terminals wired, the tightwatt only has 4


Hello Barbara.
You dont have T101R timer. Because T101 has 3 terminals.
Remember any Intermatic timer can be replaced into the T101 enclosure.
First step, Identify your voltage.
Second step, identify if you are controlling a 2-speed pump.
Third step, identify the Intermatic timer by looking at clock motor and wiring.

T101R timer has 3 terminals, and has WG1570 120Volt clock motor.
T103R timer has 5 terminals and WH1570 120Volt clock motor
T104 timer and T106R timer have 5 terminals and WG1573 240Volt clock motor
Copy following link to help identify your specific wiring.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

Terminal A on Intermatic could be Neutral or Hot depending on what has been done to alter the timer.
Generally the tightwatt timer wires very similar to P1353 timer.

Im installing a TORK 1103.. Im hooking this timer up to 4 outlets.. I have a black, a white, a red and a copper wire.. my problem is I have to turn the timer on and off manually.. The clock is not...


Tork 1103 is mechanical timer with 125V 3 watt clock motor
Dial on front face rotates when clock has voltage
Dark and light colored pins connected to dial, and turn timer on and off
There is removable brass bar that connects poles L and 1

You have 4 wires:
Red >>> I'm not sure about this wire, is this Hot wire coming from tandem breaker?
Black >>> this is Hot wire coming from tandem breaker
White >>> this is Neutral wire
Bare ground

Test wires:
Please test Black and Red to bare ground to see if these are both Hot
Test Hots to white to confirm this is Neutral
Solution ASSUMES black and red are both Hot, and white is Neutral

You have 2 problems:
Prob 1) Clock does not rotate dial: so clock is bad -or- clock not wired correctly
Prob 2) You are able to control 4 plugs using manual override, which means load wires are correct
However, you want to wire timer 'without red wire' (which is confusing, since red wires are connected to outlets)

ef19106.jpg
Solution Prob 1:
1) The diagram show the N or Neutral wire is connected to Unmarked pole on timer
2) Black Hot has to be connected to pole L
3) Unmarked pole and pole L must be wired with 120V as shown before dial will rotate
4) If wiring is correct and dial does not rotate, then clock motor is bad
5) If dial rotates, check outer rim of dial to see if you have dark and light pins for on-off functions
6) Notice that all the Neutrals connect on Unmarked pole

Solution Prob2:
Are you saying that the household wiring extends beyond the 4 plugs, so when you turn off the 4 plugs, it also turns off more plugs and switches farther down the line? If so, you need to wire plugs with separate hot wire.
Let me review features on timer which might help:
1) There is removable brass bar between poles L and 1
2) If brass bar is removed, then you need Hot wires on both L and 1... but you can jumper between L and 1 with short black wire
3) If brass bar is there, then one Hot connected to either L or 1 will power both clock and load.
4) Timer is DPST double pole single throw ... so you can control 2 different loads ... one load connects to Unmarked pole and pole X ... another load connects to Unmarked pole and pole 2

If brass bar is removed:
Jumper between poles L and 1 ... so only one Hot wire is used on your timer.

Below shows jumper on poles L & 1: hot to load is on pole 2

Where can I get a wiring diagram for the intermatic t1975


Intermatic t1975 manual

Programming:
Depress trippers to turn on load
First tripper turns on timer for 16-20 minutes.
Each additional tripper lengthens time by 15 minutes
So if you want timer ON for 2 hours, you depress 8 successive trippers
Leave tripper up for OFF times
See manual for day-skipper details
Wiring:
T1975 has 120V clock motor
The load voltage is the same 120V
Timer can control 2 separate loads with SPDT
1) NO normally open pole (no electricity flows until timer turns ON)
2) NC normally closed pole (electricity always flows until timer turns ON)
This timer cannot control 240V load

Hello can i get the instuctions for tork timer model 1191 please?


According to Intermatic conversion chart, Tork 1191 is same as Tork 1101.

Link to 1101 .pdf
Link to Tork manuals

Tork 1101 is dial-type mechanical timer. Dark pins turn OFF. Light pins turn ON.

Clock motor is 120V
Hot black wire from breaker connects to pole L
Neutral white wire from breaker connects to pole X
Removable bridge connects poles L &1 together
If bridge is gone, Hot from breaker must also connect to pole 1
Black wire to Load connects to pole 2
White wire to Load connects to pole X

Timer can control 240V Load if removable bridge between poles L and 1 is taken out.
Timer clock is still 120V: so 120V Hot still connects to pole L and neutral from breaker connect to poles X
240 V circuit has two hot lines: Hot line 1 and Hot line 2
240 volt Hot line 1 from breaker connects to pole 1
240 volt Hot line 1 to load connects to pole 2
240V Hot line 2 goes directly to Load and does not connect to any pole

How do i wire my diehl 880 ?


1) Here is Diehl 880 instruction manual

2) Diehl 880 is 120V timer
-1/2 HP
-1000 Watt tungsten. Tungsten means incandescent light bulbs.

3) Checklist:
a) Your load does not exceed capacity > Timer is too lightweight to control 1500 toaster oven.
b) You need 120V line coming from breaker box with black Hot wire and white Neutral
c) You need 120V line going to Load that also has black and white wire
d) Test each black wire to ground to see which black wire is HOT

4) Deihl 880 sell sheet pdf says 880 is available SPST (single pole single throw) -or- SPDT (single pole double throw).
-The difference is pole #4 on the timer.
-If you are trying to turn one circuit off just as another circuit turns on, then you need the SPDT
-If you are turning one circuit on-and off, then the following instructions are for you

5) Wire clock
-There are 5 poles > look for markings 1-thru-5
-If no marking, then poles 1&2 are probably spaced apart from other poles
-Connect Hot and Neutral wires to poles 1&2 >> this powers clock motor, they go on either pole

-Pole 4 not used

6) Wire timer
-Poles 3&5 are timer circuits
-Connect Hot line to pole 3
-Connect black wire going to Load to pole 5
-Connect white wire from Load to Neutral

Hot and Neutral connect to poles 1 and 2
Jumper from Hot to pole 3
NC normally closed pole 5
NO normally open pole 4
Black from load connects to pole 4 or 5
White from load connects to Neutral at pole 1 or 2

Paragon mechanical 7008-00 has 120V clock motor
-8 poles control 1-4 separate 120V loads, with 2 NO Normally Open and 2 NC Normally Closed circuits with max 690 Watts per pole.

Test 120V clock motor:
-Clock motor connects to two far right terminals. Black hot to pole M, White neutral to pole T.
-You should be able to hear clock motor running by putting ear against outside case.
-Clock motor will rotate wheel, if wheel is not rotating, then motor is not running.
