I had the same situation. I turned the power off, removed the timer panel to obtain the clock motor information. I was planning on replacing the clock motor. I rechecked all the wire connections put it back together. It worked. Try this before calling the pros.

Try pulling up (towards you) the yellow clock dial to see if it will catch a gear to turn

The clock stays on in my 1996 buick century v6 and the radio fuse in glove box does not effect it, i tried removing it and had clock still on , is there a secondary fuse for clock?


Look for a "3" Amp fuse on the Fuse Block as it will be singularly used for just the Clock and should be clearly marked "Clock." The Clock should have a Red wire running out of it to the Fuse Block to power it. The Clock is typically wired separately. The red wiring will not be in front as it goes into the wiring harness and in the back of the Fuse Block but if you want to hunt for the Clock wire that will be it running out of a segment of the harness heading for the location of your Clock.

After wiring a dual timer with freeze protector the clock wont run equipment runs continually


Load and line wires are reversed on one of the timers, or clock motor wires from both clock motors are not connected together on same terminals:

Intermatic t101


99% chance the Timer wires are reversed ... and line from breaker and line to pump are reversed. Or remotely possibly the circuit is 240V, and somebody changed clock motor on old T101 from WG1570 to WG1573, converting old T101 into T102...

When I connect the 240 volt motor directly to hte GFCI breaker it works fine, however when run throough the time clock, when I turn on the breaker, it trips the breaker


You have T104 timer that controls 240Volt motor.
You have 240Volt GFCI breaker.
GFCI to motor works fine.
GFCI to timer trips breaker.

Either timer is wired wrong, or ground fault in the timer.

Open following links to review wiring:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T-104-control-240V-Load4-35.jpg

1) Make sure clock motor wires are on terminals 1 and 3, and that clock motor is 240Volt WG1573 and not 120V WG1570
2) Try connecting GFCI hot leads to terminals 1 and 3 and don't connect wires to motor.
3) Click manual override both directions and see if a short appears.
4) Remove ground wire from timer but leave power connected. Test metal timer body to ground wire to see if there is power flowing to ground.
5) Unscrew clock motor from body, and make sure clock is not touching metal body, repeat test to ground to see if clock motor is bad.
6) Remove small white wires that power the clock, to test if clock is shorting. Replace WG1573 if clock is bad.

7) Connect 240Volt motor to terminals 2 and 4. Click override back and forth. Then reverse wires to 4 and 2.

How to wire a intermatic timer T104 240 v to a 120v?


T104 is 240volt timer.
Timer has terminals A 1 2 3 4
T-104 clock motor must receive 240Volts to operate.
Clock motor wires are white-colored and can be seen connected to terminals 1 and 3.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Back-of-WH40-2b.jpg

There are two work-arounds for using T104 for 120V.

1) Diagram 1 showing how to change wiring:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T-104-control-120V-Load-500.jpg
Move 240V clock motor wires to terminal 1 and A.
Connect 240V Hot leads to terminals 1 and A. This will power the 240V clock motor
Hot wire going to 120V load connects to terminal 2. This wire will be turned on each time timer turns on, and 120Volts will power the 120V load.
To complete 120V circuit, neutral wire that comes from neutral busbar in breaker box connects to 120V load.

To control additional 120Volt circuit, run jumper wire from terminal 1 to terminal 3.
Connect Hot to second load to terminal 4.

2) Second method is to change T104 timer into T103 timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T-104-control-120V-Load-2-5.jpg
Replace T104 240V clock with identical 120V clock motor from Grainger
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Time-Clock-Motor-1PNK1?Pid=search
Neutral wires connect to terminal A.
Hot wire from Breaker connects to terminal 1
Hot going to Load connects to terminal 2

To control additional 120Volt circuit, run jumper wire from terminal 1 to terminal 3.
Connect Hot to second load to terminal 4.

I have a wall switch and two outside ligthts. there appers to be two black wires to old switch. Timer has white, black, red, and green. I hagve tried all wiring scemes and get lights to stay and not turn...


You posted under the ST01C timer.
ST01C has black, red and blue wires, and has a battery to run the clock.

You have black, white, red and green.
So your timer has an electronic clock and no battery.

Let's go through the wires one at a time.
You can add a comment and I will help further if needed.

Old switch has 2 black wires.
One of these wire is black-Hot
The other wire is black-to-Load (load is your light, fan, motor)

Black-Hot connects to timer-black wire
Black-to-Load connects to timer-red wire
NOW ... if these wires are reversed, the timer will not operate, so simply reverse the wires.

There are two wires to go:
Timer-green wire goes to bare copper wire.
Timer-white wire is the wire that runs the clock inside the timer. This is just like plugging in your alarm clock so the clock runs.

The timer-white wire connects to the other white wires located inside the box.
These white wires are usually twisted together and covered with a wire nut.
So untwist the wire nut and add the timer-white wire to these wires.
What if your box does not have these other white wires?
Then in that case, connect the timer-white wire to the bare copper and the clock will run.

Have intermatic t103 time switch, 240 v supply, clock motor not turning. what the correct wiring for the clock. 2 white wires...


Maybe-bad news.
The link below shows wiring for the T-104, T-103 and T-101
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T103

For a 240V installation, the correct timer is the T-104, not the T-103
This is because the T-103 clock motor is 120V, and requires additional neutral wire on terminal A
The T-104 clock motor is 240V, and requires only the two hot wires and does not require a neutral.

I suggest you exchange timers and get the T-104
Or run another wire to nearby 120V receptacle and connect Terminal A to the white wires in nearby receptacles. This will give you the neutral that is needed for the clock.
In the absence of a Neutral wire, you can work-around by connecting ground wire to Terminal A >>> but this is NOT Code. You might use the ground wire as a temporary work-around until running additional neutral wire.

Timer stopped running so I replace timer motor. However the timer still does not run. I can still turn pool pump on manually. Will I have to replace entire unit?


T103 clock motor is 125 volt WG1570
1) If you bought the 240V WG1573, the clock will not operate
2) If you connected the motor wires to wrong terminals, then clock will not operate.
3) If original box label says T103, but 240V T104 was installed in same box, and you bought wrong voltage motor
4) Test for 120Volts across terminals A and 1, and make sure clock motor matches voltage of timer, and clock motor wires are connected to terminals A and 1.
