Trying to fix Intermatic E-941 timer

Trying to take apart a non-working Intermatic E-941 appliance timer. Took the one screw out of the back, but it won't come apart. Can't find any tech docs on Intermatic.com web site. Can you help?

    It's 20+ years old, no longer turns on and off. Just one long screw in the back. I took that screw out, but the unit won't come apart for me to see what's wrong.

There is another screw in the front behind the dial. Pry off the round disc in the middle of the dial and you will see the other screw you need to remove.

DT11 timer turns on aplliance but will not shut it off.


1) DT11 is older timer, and may be may be copied by foreign manufacturers. Timer has 1 year limited warranty.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#DT300

2) Don't buy timers from ebay or local drug store.
Don't buy used timers.

3) DT11 timer may not be rated for appliances. Usually this type timer has rating for 600-1200 watt incandescent bulb, and will overheat and fail quickly with higher load, such as appliance load.
Buy Intermatic appliance timer for appliances:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#appliance

4) Always reset timer before programming.

5) Review programming for conflicts and overlaps that would cause timer not to function as expected.

How to ground a Tork EW103B time switch wired for 240Volt since there is no ground lug in the plastic housing or on the body of the timer itself


Many plastic timer enclosures do not have ground screw.
Simply join the ground wires inside wiring space using wire nut.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-Digital-timers-and-manuals.html#ew

Since the timer mechanism is plastic, it is non-conductive.
It's like using all-plastic electric drill. The drill does not have ground wire because the electrical components are housed completely in non-conductive plastic.

You can buy the Tork 9000A metal Nema3R enclosure if grounding is preferred. Or buy Intermatic 2T511GA metal Nema3R enclosure plus buy Tork IAP adapter to fit Intermatic enclosures.
Choose the metal enclosures when conduit needs to be supported and timer could be hit by some object.

The non-grounded box and non-grounded timer is also true of GE digital timers 15132 and 15136. Which coincidentally have same wiring as EW103 when using 240Volt.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-GE-15132-timer.html

However the Tork DTU40 timer has ground screw >>> but the timer is not grounded, so ground screw is merely for joining wires together.

I purchased a 1875 watts Timex Heavy Duty timer Model # 12-881 to connect to my 1200 watt water distiller. The timer is burned and has melted where the distiller was plugged in. We were furtunate...


Timex 12-881 timer has 3-prong outlet and is rated 15amp 1875 watts.

The timer melted because too much amperage was drawn across the connection and timer got hot.
Different things can cause this.
Phony rating, and/or mis-manufactured timer.
Defective timer.
If distiller has a motor, then it will draw more amps at start-up.
Timer is rated for incandescent light bulbs only.
Many timers say 1875 watts resistive, but instruction sheet will show 1000Watts incandescent and 1/4 HP horsepower.
Timer is plugged into extension cord.
Cheaply built product, not meant for constant use.
Timer outlet and distiller plug did not meet firmly, so connection heated up.
Turn off distiller before plugging into outlet so no spark is at the connection point.

I recommend appliance timer for operating appliances.
For example Intermatic HB 113 timer.
http://www.smarthome.com/25071/Intermatic-HB113C-120V-20A-Heavy-Duty-Mechanical-Appliance-Timer/p.aspx
Also heavy duty portable timer like Intermatic P1121

HOW SET TIME ON AND OFF


You posted under intermatic 1020 timer
If this is not your timer, add a comment

How to set timer.
Remove dial from body of timer.
So now the timer is apart in 2 pieces.
Silver ON trippers and brass OFF trippers can be removed.

Place trippers in times you want timer to operate.
OFF trippers have to be at least 2 hours apart.
ON trippers have to be at least 2 hours apart
Minimum on-off function is one hour

Snap timer back together.
Rotate dial around until current time lines up with mark

Dial rotates with passing time.
Tripper rotates around with dial.
When tripper contacts on-off lever, it physically moves lever like turning light switch on-off.
ON tripper moves lever one direction.
OFF tripper moves lever opposite direction.

I HAVE AN iNTERMATIC t100m TIMER it appears to have two "off" tripper levers but no "on" tripper lever attached to the clock face dial by a set screw . Do I need an "on "...


Yes, the T101M 120Volt pool timer requires both ON and OFF trippers:

Grainger sells T100 series on-off trippers:
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Timer-Tripper-2E054?Pid=search
Amazon sells T100 trippers
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003YO2C5U/?tag=picc-20

How to wire T-101 120Volt timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

How Intermatic dial timer clock works.
Clock motor rotates dial.
Intermatic clock motor, located on back of mechanism, are replaceable
Trippers located on outer edge of dial push on-off lever
ON tripper pushes lever one direction
OFF tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
Lever pushes electrical contacts together and pulls contacts apart.
When lever moves, manual override also clicks back and forth with audible click.
To replace timer, replacement snaps into box without needing to changing box.

Is it possible to connect a digital timer(4 wires) to lite fixture with two switches? The switch I am trying to connect to is three pole and a ground


If I understand correctly, your switch has 3 poles, which makes it a 3-way switch.
You confirm this by saying light fixture has two switches.

There are two brands of in-wall timers that will work in 3-way situation. Intermatic and Aube. But only specific models of these timers work for 3-way.

The Intermatic EJ500 and ST01C battery-operated timers can work with 3-way switch. But wiring is tricky to impossible in some cases without extra wiring.
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#ST01C


The easiest timer to wire for 3-way switch is Aube model T1032 which is a 500 watt timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Aube-timers.html
T1032 manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Aube-T1032-timer.pdf
geno_3245_147.jpg
Look at the wiring diagrams carefully.
Note that you are replacing one switch with the timer.
The second switch needs additional jumper wire added to circuit between dark-colored screw and the brass-colored screw that connects back to #1 wire from the timer.

Add a comment if you have this timer, or buy this timer, and need help with wiring.
