120 Volt timer.
When timer is ON, test across terminals 2 and 3 for 120 Volt
If 2 and 3 show 120 volt, then timer is delivering power on schedule. Look for loose connections. Loose wire nuts.
If 2 and 3 do not show 120 Volt, then timer has failed.
Suggest buy T101 as replacement for durability and generic replacement parts.

I need trippers for timer paragon 4001-00m

1) Paragon is no longer making X2772 trippers for the 4000 series timer.
Some places may still sell the X2772 tripper.

2) I saw X2772 trippers for $60 spring 2011. And the ad did not say the trippers were new.

3) Buy replacement T101 Intermatic timer for less than that.
Example at Amazon showing T101 indoor timer: For outdoor timer, buy T101R.

4) Crossover wiring from Paragon 4001-00 to Intermatic T101:
Paragon terminal 1 goes to Intermatic 1
Paragon terminal 2 goes to Intermatic 2
Paragon terminal 3 goes to Intermatic A

Apparently, the spring under the timer dial on my 4001 timer has been broken and the timer will no longer trip the trippers. Can this be fixed? It is a nearly-new unit and I like it.

Open following link for Paragon resources:

Individual parts are not sold except for X2772 tripper.
Move the manual override lever back and forth and see if load turns on-off.
Watch if on-and-off trippers are moving override lever back and forth, to see if problem is a worn tripper instead of broken spring.

Replacement 4001-00 timers are sold, even though Paragon is no longer making timers except defrost timers.
Replacement timer is Intermatic T101

I need a set of trippers for a Paragon 4001 switch timer. Need both "On " and "off" trippers. Can you find some?

Paragon 4000 series timers uses X2772 tripper

Google search x2772 tripper
Frontier Lighting shows they are out.
A couple other places show 56-60 dollars for the tripper

In November 2010, I got e-mail from Paragon saying that Paragon stopped making timers and parts for timers, except for defrost timers. 4001 is not defrost timer.

Intermatic has cross-reference link if you want to buy new timer:
Cross reference shows T-101 timer matches your timer.

Aplus supply sells T101 for $60
Amazon sells T101 for 43$ with free shipping over 25$

I get lights when I turn the switch to on but as the timer advances, it doesn't trip and turn the timer on

You posted under Intermatic T101 timer.
Add a comment if timer is different.
1) If this is new timer installation, it sounds like black wires on terminals 1 and 2 are reversed.
Other cause could be the ON-OFF trippers not positioned on timer dial

2) If this is old timer that worked before, then tripper pins could be worn down.

My paragon timer4001-ov runs but will not trip on/ off trippers if this cannot be repaired what would be a good replacement for 120 volt supply

I don't see the 4001-ov in the Paragon spec sheet

To test the general condition of your Paragon timer, use the manual override.
If the manual override works perfectly, then you may need new tripper pins.
The Paragon 4000 series uses X2772 tripper pin.
Google search Paragon X2772 tripper turns up prices of $9 for a pair of trippers

A simple 120V replacement timer is the Intermatic T-101
For outdoor, use the T-101R 'R' for raintight

Lowes usually has the T-101 on the store shelf and they sell the T-101R online

If timer has been working fine up until now, you probably need a new tripper pin

If lever is worn out, then you need new timer.
You can but a T-101 and swap insides without changing box
The T-103 will also work because it has a 120V clock motor
The T-104 is a 240V timer and will not work
You can buy the replacement timer mechanism and swap out

When wiring new timer, put wires back the same as old timer
