Model:pf1103t will come but won't turn pump on now???


PF1103 is thermostat for 120V and 240V applications, and is usually wired to a timer that controls pool pump. When temperature drops below thermostatic setting, the thermostat by-passes the timer and runs pump continuously so pipes don't freeze. Usually this question appears in wintertime instead of summer, so I wonder how the PF1103 is turning ON, unless you are experiencing problems with a timer.
PF1103 manual shows wiring:
http://www.1000bulbs.com/pdf/Inter-PF1102T-Operating.pdf
You can buy the thermostat separately
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-PF1102M-Freeze-Protection-Mechanism/dp/B004I4278M

1) As an electrician, I would begin by looking for loose wires, evidence of burning and high heat.
2) Next I would examine the circuit and circuit breaker to see if voltage is reaching the timer and thermostat.
3) Last step would be to test individual wires to isolate problem.
Be sure to stand on dry surface like plywood when testing live electric circuits.

If you have a timer, open following links to help identify timer module, and then add a comment with timer model:

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!

I have a 4003 osz time clock and it does not turn lights on and off. Where can I get new insides for the same box.


As of November 2010 or before, Paragon is no longer making timers or parts except Defrost timers.
4003 0SZ is not a defrost timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html

0SZ suffix appears to be 120Volt astronomic time clock that turns ON at Dusk and OFF at Dawn
4003 is DPST 120Volt 40 amp mechanical timer

Intermatic mechanical astronomic clocks:
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/mechanical%20time%20switches/astronomic.aspx
These time clocks are Indoor-outdoor and can control 3 different 120V Loads, for example store light in front, outdoor light in back, and outdoor sign. All Loads turn on-off at same time.
Beverly Hills shows the V4547r

Intermatic also makes electronic astronomic time pieces where voltage is selectable, with many timing options (programming is detailed and complicated):
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/electronic%20time%20switches/astronomic%20electronic.aspx
NEMA1 is indoor box
NEMA 3R is indoor-outdoor box.
SPST means timer can control 1 Load
SPDT can control 2 120V Loads

Intermatic PF 1102 digital timer with freeze control; Timer will switch from off to on to auto, but when switching to "on' the pump will not turn on. There is a "click" that indicates to...


The freeze control is wired parallel with timer, so both controls can turn Load ON-OFF.
So Load turns ON when either the freeze-control or the timer turns ON.
When both are ON, then Load will be ON.
Freeze control can be ON and timer OFF and Load is ON
Freeze control can be OFF and timer ON and Load is ON.
Only when both Freeze control and timer are OFF, will Load be OFF.

If pump is not turning ON below 32 (or the protection set point), then freeze control thermostat is suspect.
But you need to check if pump turns ON when timer turns ON.
If pump operates with timer, then freeze control is main suspect, unless there is a loose wire.
Open box and check for loose and burned connections.
If pump does not operate with either timer or freeze control, then check for loose wires and also check your circuit breaker and check that pump is operable.

To find replacement freeze control, Google search: Intermatic freeze protection thermostat

Need manual to set timer


You posted under T-100 series outdoor timer
If you have different timer, add a comment with timer model number located inside cover.

T-104, T-103, T-101 timer manuals show on following page:
If your timer has R suffix, like T-101R, that means box is Raintight for outdoor use.
T-101R and T-101 mechanisms are identical except for box. T-101 box is indoor use.
Click model number and drop-down menu reveals link to manual
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/mechanical%20time%20switches/24%20hour%20dial.aspx

If you need simple wiring diagrams, and explanation for each T-104, T-103, T-101 timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

Here's how to set Intermatic T100 series timers:
Lift and rotate yellow dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.
Silver pointer is stationary at 6 o'clock position.
Put ON-OFF trippers on dial at times you want ON OFF functions.
Minimum on-off is 1 hour because of tripper width.
If timer is not working, add a comment and we'll troubleshoot.

These timers have replacement trippers and clock motors at Grainger
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi

How timer works:
Clock motor, located on back of mechanism, rotates yellow dial.
Trippers on dial push lever that turns power ON and OFF.
Off tripper pushes lever one direction.
ON tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
When lever is pushed, manual override lever clicks back and forth with audible click sound.

I am not sure on how to wire the freeze protection wires to the time clock. i know they must go to the load side of the clock for the main pump but will this reverse the power back into controls and short...


Here's a 240V diagram with clock timer and freeze control:
Add a comment if explanation does not fit your exact timer:

geno_3245_67.jpg
See image full size:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Freeze-protection-500.jpg

Here's how freeze control works:
Freeze control is like regular timer, except it turns ON by thermostat instead of time-clock
Freeze control turns ON pump whenever thermostat kicks on.
Both clock-timer and freeze-control are wired to pump in 'parallel' so to speak.
Think of it as having two controls wired to same pump...
Both controls can turn pump ON-OFF.
If one turns ON, and other is OFF ... then pump is ON.
If both are ON, then pump is ON ... and electricity just flows around on extra wires.
If both are OFF, then pump is OFF.

Say it's below freezing all day.
Freeze control circuit is ON all day ... pump is ON all day
Clock timer turns ON > but circuit is already ON, so timer just opens more wires for electricity to flow around on.
When clock timer turns OFF > freeze circuit is still ON because it's below freezing ... pump is still ON.

240V wiring:
Power leads coming from circuit breaker go to terminals 1&3 on clock-timer
Same power leads connect to freeze-control-black and freeze-control-red.
Or connect freeze-control-black and freeze-control-red to terminals 1&3
This action puts power to clock and power to thermostat

Pump wires connect to terminals 2&4
Same pump wires also connect to freeze-control-blue and freeze-control-yellow.
Or connect freeze-control-blue and freeze-control-yellow to terminals 2&4
This action connects pump to both freeze-control and timer.
When either clock-timer or freeze-control turn ON, then pump turns ON.

My automatic timer is not working.


You posted under Intermatic raintight timer.
Add a comment with your model and brand and I have extensive files on timers.

The best diagnostic is the manual override.
1) Click manual override and see if Load (lights, fan, motor) come on.
If manual override clicks on-and-off crisp and clean, but the lights do not come on, check your electric power.
If the manual override does not click crisp and clean, then the timer may be rusty, or timer may need to be replaced. Buy replacement timer and swap out timer mechanisms without changing the box.
If the manual override works fine, and Load turns on-and-off with manual override, then the clock or trippers are next suspect.

2) Check if the dial is turning as time passes.
If the dial is not turning, then the clock motor is bad and you can buy a new clock motor.
If dial is turning, and manual override turns Load on-and-off, then the tripper pins might be worn out, and you can buy new trippers.

3) To buy replacement parts: Timer door has model number of timer. Timer clock located on back of timer mechanism has identifying numbers. You can snap out the timer mechanism using metal spring locate top inside box.

Wall Oven won't work


I tried randomly pushing 2 buttons at a time, and when I pushed "Timer Off/On" and "Cancel" together it unlocked and is now working fine. The following day it beeped a lot for an hour or so (must have been catching up on previous pushes) but now is back to normal.
