Can a tork timer 1101 be used to control a 240 volt pool pump motor by controlling only 1 lead of the motor thus having the other lead hot all the time?

Yes: 240 volt can be controlled by turning off 1 hot leg of 240V circuit.
But the tork 101 clock motor still requires 120Volts (unless you buy a tork 240volt 201 clock motor to replace the 120volt 101)

Copy following links for handy resource and wiring diagram:

In the wiring diagram above, it shows white neutral wire running to Tork 1101 timer terminal 2. Bring this white neutral wire from any nearby 120volt outlet.
In event that you do not have this white neutral wire, you can connect ground wire to terminal 2 and that will give 120volts to the 101 clock motor.
Completing circuit to clock motor using ground wire is violation of national electric code for many reasons, however the tiny clock motor only draws 3 watts, and you will remember to bring a white neutral wire to this timer at later date so you can sleep better at night.

I have TORK 1104 , I need control 2- louds (same face) I understood L- hot 1 from breaker, 1- hot 2 from breaker, X- com to loud 1, 2- is com to loud 2. BUD WHERE MUST BE CONNECTED NEUTRAL???

Tork 1104 is 240Volt timer.
Same timer is repackaged and sold as GE 15307
See wiring diagram for single load 240Volt:

On the 1104, there is not a separate terminal for Neutral wire.
240Volt circuit does not require neutral wire to complete circuit, so 240Volt timer does not have terminal for neutral.

If you want to control two 240volt loads, then this is not the best timer.
I recommend GE 15207 from Home Depot or Heavy-duty Intermatic GM40 available on-line.

If you want to control two 120Volt loads using Tork 1104, then connect 240Volt lines to to terminals L and 1 as shown in diagram above.
Bring your neutral wire into the box, but do not connect neutral to any terminal.
Each 120Volt load has black and white wires. The whites are for neutral so tie them into the neutral wire using wire nut. Connect black wires to terminals X and 2. If you want both 120Volt loads on same phase, then connect both black wires to terminal X.

SA 150 20 MP TIMER--- I have a manual timer in place now which does not always shut off. It is wired in with Black and Red wires and green to ground. The diagram on this new unit is confusing me Help...

Open following link to identify SA150 single pole 15-minute countdown timer rated for 1 Hp

Timer has 3 wires:
Timer-Black wire connects to Hot from breaker. One of the old switch wires is Hot. Hot is usually black wire, and will test for 120V when tested to ground wire.
Timer-Blue wire connects to Load wire going to light/fan/motor. The Load wire is other wire that connects to old switch.
Timer-White wire connects to white Neutral wires. This will power the timer electronics. Neutral wires are the white wires that are twisted together and covered with wire nut and pushed to back of box.
If box does not have Neutral wires, then connect Timer-white to bare ground wire until you have time to bring neutral wire to box from any nearby outlet. Wiring timer to ground in this manner is not code.
Turn power on. If timer does not work, then reverse Timer-Blue and Timer-black and see if timer functions correctly.
If Sylvania timer will not function, then call 888-548-4484

If you want electronic countdown timer that requires no neutral wire, then select 1 Hp spring-wound timer, or 1/6 Hp Leviton-LTT series

I have a Intermatic Wall Timer Model EJ500 and I only have 3 wires and can I usethe Wood Model #59028 and where can I get one if it works. I had a single pole switch when I installed the Intermatic. The...

Yes you can use 59028 if you have Neutral or bare ground wire.

EJ500 is battery operated.
Woods 59028 uses electricity to power internal electronics. Like plugging in alarm clock so timer mechanism works.
That's why 59028 has white wire and EJ500 does not.

EJ500 can be used for 3-way switching, so it has extra red wire that is capped off in single pole operation. EJ500 blue wire connects to Load (light,fan, motor)

59028 is for single pole only. The red wire connects to Load.

Here's how to wire 59028:
1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire.
2) Connect 59028 red wire where EJ500 blue wire was connected.
3) Connect 59208 black wire where EJ500 black wire was connected.
4) When electric box does not have white neutral wires, then connect timer-white to bare ground.
5) Turn on electricity, and push door on 59028 timer to activate on-off override. If Load comes on, timer is wired correctly. If Load does not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

Need connection diagram Thks

The following diagram is for timers with green, black, white, and red wires:
If your timer is different, add a comment with model number.


Manual says:
Timer-black-wire to Hot; Timer-red-wire to Load (lights)
Timer-white-wire to Neutral.
Here's what to do
1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire.
2) Switch has 2 wires. Take switch wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire. Choose either one for now.
3) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white to these wires.
4) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground.
5) Turn on electricity, and push manual override button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

New switch GE model 15265 ... to light up 2 lightbulbs outside. Old switch all cables are black. Those who light up the tester are the hot=Red/black?? Those which do not light up are white?? Green I know...

Manual for GE 15265
15A timer works fine on two bulbs, up to 1440 total watts.

If old switch has 2 screws plus green ground screw, then timer is right.
If old switch has 3 screws plus green ground screw, 15265 doesn't replace 3-way switch.

Timer-green wire connects to bare ground wire

Old switch has 2 screws with wires on each.
One wire is Hot-from breaker and this connects to timer-black wire.
One wire Goes-to-lights and this connects to timer-red wire.
If you get these two wires reversed, timer will not work, so reverse them.
It will not blow circuit if the timer-red and timer-black wires are reversed.

Timer-White wire is the confusing wire for everybody:
Timer-white wire runs clock motor located inside timer.
In back of electric box are neutral white wires that are twisted together and covered with wire nut.
Connect timer-white to these neutral wires.
If box does not have neutral white wires, connect timer-white to bare ground wire.

My switch has only a white wire (hot) and a black wire (neutral). Witch one dose the red wire connect to?

I answer questions for free
I specialize in timers and electrical devices
If you have a different timer than the one shown below, add a comment with your timer model and I will help.
Different timers use the red wire differently.

You posted under Intermatic ST01C.
If the ST01C is your timer, then the red wire is capped off.
The black-timer wire connects to black wire.
The blue-timer wire connects to white wire.

IF the timer does not work after wiring, then try reversing the blue and black wires.

The following photo shows the EJ500 timer which is wired exactly like the ST01C

The following link shows several wiring diagrams for the ST01C and EJ500 timers

Can you please provide instructions for connecting Utilitech Self-Adjusting Wall Timer- #0192773. My electrical box has only 3 wires 2 black and 1 green ground.

What you are describing is a wall electrical box for a "Wwitch Loop". What this means is that the power source (Hot and Neutral) go to the light first. What the electrician has done is run a wire from the light in which one wire is the hot leg from the source and the other one is the "switched leg" which runs back to the light as controled on-off power to it. The only legitimate way to use this timer would be to replace the wire from the wall switch to the light with a 3 conductor cable (3 current carrying wires and a bare ground or green wire). This would allow you to bring the hot and neutral along with the controlled "switched leg" as this time requires a constant source of power for the timer itself. Don't be tempted to let someone tell you to use the ground wire as a neutral. It is not safe to do that.

GE digital timer model 15086 doe not work

This timer requires a neutral wire, it may or may not be present in the back of your box as a group of wire nutted whites. It is NOT the single white switch leg.
