How do you set a pool chlorinator timer - pump wont go on automatically and I dont have a user manula for my clearwater LM2 24TS


If the timer does not keep the time of day then it is faulty and needs to be replaced.
Timers have adjustable tabs to turn the timer on and off at a set times of day.

I dont know how to set the timer


Question posted under Intermatic T104 series timer and pool control center.
Open following link to see how to set this timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/How-to-operate-and-set-T104-timer.pdf

Intermatic T12404R control center has 2 timers.
Each timer is set same way.
Timer must be reset after power outage. If time dial is not rotating correctly or is sticking at the tripper, then the WG1573 clock motor can be replaced by homeowner.
Both timers are 240Volts, and can be wired in variety of ways to control different voltages. For example 120Volt pool lights, and 240Volt pool pump and pool heater etc.
Each timer snaps out of control center using thumb spring located top inside box.
Each timer mechanism is sold separately. One timer is T104M. The other is T104M201.
The difference is that the 201 has a 'fireman's switch' that can be wired to pool heater, and the switch turns off heater 15-20 minutes before turning off pump.
Each timing mechanism can be repaired by homeowner using available clock motors and trippers.

Need trippers for older unknown model number amf paragon pool timer. timer is 15 - 20 years old


Paragon no longer makes timers or parts, except defrost timers.
Typically, defrost timers are not used for pools.
Open following link to possibly identify timer and tripper part number.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html

If you want a new timer for pools, Intermatic makes the T101 120Volt and T104 240Volt:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

If you want T100 series timer with fireman's switch that turns off heater 10 minutes before turning off pump:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#pool

If you have energy-saving 2-speed pool pump, and thermostat and pool light, then buy P1353 digital timer with enclosure. Enclosure and timer sold together as P1353ME.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#P1353
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/PE100-series-with-P1353-timer.pdf
P1353 is not easy to wire or program for novice, so you can add a comment or repost question on fixya and I will catch it.

I need to reset the timer on my 633T Krystal Clear pump as we have unplugged the power and we can't get the timer to work.


You know the timer can only be programmed once and it is 24 hrs after the last time it ran. So turn it on at the exact time of day you want it to run every day, set the dial to how many hours to run and walk away. It should start up automatically 24 hrs later each and every day (as long as you have the on switch set to the timer position)

Check that your pool heater supports optional fireman's switch
Black wires on firemans switch connect to pool heater. Power to fireman switch comes from pool equipment and not the timer.
If pool equipment does not support fireman, then cap off the wires.

Fireman switch turns off heater 15-20 minutes before turning off pump.
The purpose is so pool equipment lasts longer.

You can buy the fireman's switch separately, but if this is new timer, then switch is probably good.

Sounds like the ON tripper is worn down.
Check that dial is rotating correctly each 24-hours. If not then wiring might be wrong.

Pool pump cannot be turned off with timer switch. Pump runs constantly. I can turn off with breaker switch but not with switch on timer.


You posted under Intermatic EI200 series countdown timer.

Intermatic EI200 series is rated for 1/4 HP.
Check nameplate on motor for HP. Pool pump is probably 1 HP.
Open following link for countdown timer ratings:

http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/in-wall%20timers/electronic%20auto-off%20timers.aspx

Add a comment and say what kind of timer you are using and say specifically what you want timer to do, and I will locate correct timer for that specific need.

You can also add a contactor to the circuit.
Timer controls contactor, and contactor turns pump on-off.

Allheaters run off of a thermostat just like the heat to your house. It will shut off once heated to the selected temperature. Turn up the temperature, and monitor it for a couple days.

Pentair pool pump vs 3050


These pumps should not be hooked into an intermatic mechanical timer. It should always have power supplied to it, meaning it should be installed to the line side of the power supply. Scheduling is done either in pump itself or thru an external controller such as a suntouch or easytouch controller, etc. When you have it wired into a timer like intermatic, power is interupted to the pump every day when the timer setting is for off. It is very hard on the drive of this pump, it does not like it, and will shorten the life of the drive. The pump was designed to always have power supplied to it, even when it is not scheduled to run. This may be the problem you are experiencing. HTH
