I moved the time pinter by accident. now the timer

I moved ( unscrewed ) the timer pointer on my inermatic t104p3 swiming pool timer by accident. now the pool timer does not come on automatically. i returned it to the original position but now the timer only points the time. although the time works fine, it does not come on automatically anymore. i must turn it on and off manually . the problem happened after i unscrewed the time pointer.

Did you mix up the pointers? One of them is for off and one for on. Dont know any other reason. If the timer is working all the pointers do is manually trip the lever as it comes past. On and Off should be stamped on the pointer.

What position is lever on intermatic pool timer t104p3 for timer to work?


Lever automatically moves back and forth as trippers pass.
Move lever to ON position, move to the right.
If timer dial is not rotating, then check wiring, or replace clock motor:
If timer worked before and stopped working, but dial still rotates, the trippers are worn down, replace trippers:

I have unscrewed my tier pointer by mistake to coincide with the current time on my T21004R timer. Now I cannot get into start and turn off where my on and off indicators are set. How do I correct thi


T21004R is single 240Volt T104M mechanism inside a 60 amp control panel.
The T100 series timer has stationary pointer that is supposed to be straight downward. Move pointer into downward position and apply bit of super glue to hold in place, or just remember where it should point.
Copy following links for instructions how to set and use the T104 timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/How-to-operate-and-set-T104-timer.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#pool

The T104 timer is rated for 40 amps, and is usually repairable, uses WG1573 replacement clock motor, and 156T1978A trippers. Trippers are made of softer metal and are designed to wear out before wearing down timer mechanism.

Can I move the stationary pointer clockwise and counterclockwise or will it break the devise


It is not necessary to move stationary pointer:
The stationary pointer points straight down at 6:00, and is used as a mark for setting current time.
Lift and rotate yellow dial until current time lines up with the pointer.
It will not break anything by moving the pointer, but you might forget the current time location.

Moved time pointer on pool timer to set time than read instructions moved pointer back to original spot now timer does not click on or off when it passes pins


Timer brand and model number are not shown.
Brand and model appear on inside of timer door.

Moving stationary pointer will not affect on-off operation of timer. The pointer is just reference for setting current time.
Worn trippers can cause problem.
Trippers are softer metal and designed to wear down so timer mechanism lasts for decades.

Intermatic pool timers use set of 156T1978A trippers.

Tork timers use P47 tripper on 24-hour clock dial

Paragon 4000 series uses X2772 tripper. Paragon timers are discontinued and trippers hard to find.

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

Intermatic t104p3 pool timer will turn pump ""ON" with Manual Switch but will not shut "OFF" using Manual Toggle. Pool store showed me how to remove and look at the contacts on...


Thank you for including model number so answer can be accurate as possible.

T104P3 timer works with manual override so timer is basically sound.
Clock dial rotates and keeps good time, so WG1573 240Volt clock motor is good.
Trippers do not click on-off lever, so trippers are suspect.
Trippers are made to wear down so that timer mechanism lasts years longer.

Order extra clock motor and trippers at Grainger

POOL TIMER T104P3 DIAL DOESN'T MOVE..HAVE POWER


If manual override turns Load on-off, and if override snaps crisp and clean, then timer is basically sound.
If dial does not rotate, then replace T100 series 240Volt clock motor.
Link below shows clock motor & trippers for T104 240volt timer.
