Question about TORK Digital Interval Timer Ssa100r-24

1 Answer

Timer keeps time, but sticks at tripper points

I have a Tork 1103 timer and the timer keeps time, but when it gets to a on or off tripper it stops. If and when it trips on, often times it gets stuck on in that position running my device indefinitely. Is there a trick to putting the trippers on the clock face?? Any other ideas...or am I looking at a clock motor replacement.

4) Intermatic crossover for Tork 1103 shows Intermatic T103 timer.
Amazon sells T103 for $50

An electrician installed a new Tork 1103 24 hr timer for the pool pump. You can only manually turn it on and off. When trying to set the time, the dial is loose and does not stay in position and does not...


I think you have 120Volt pool pump.
Add a comment if this is incorrect since wiring information is based on this assumption.

(1) Wiring problem:
Evidence shows timer is wired in reverse (dial only rotates when pump is ON, and dial stops rotating when pool pump is OFF)
Electrician reversed the wires, but wires need to be tested.
Hot wire from circuit breaker always connects to L
Neutral wire from breaker box connects to unmarked terminal.
This will give clock motor continuous power.
Next:
Black wire going to Load (pump) connects to X
White wire going to Load connects to unmarked terminal along with Neutral wire.

Tork 1103 is SPDT timer with 3 watt 120volt clock motor that can control multiple loads and voltages, and can be wired many different ways.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/1103INSTALLOP.pdf

(2) Loose dial. The dial should only rotate counterclockwise when moved with hand. The fact that trippers work when rotated by hand says dial is probably not problem. If timer is used, and trippers skip over and do not turn on Load (pump) then order P47 replacement trippers.

Everytime I put the pre-sets for the timer, it does'nt keep time. COuld you assist me or provide me with someone who can repair?


I can assist you.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#8000

The 'pre-sets' are confusing.
Do you mean tabs or trippers?

Tork 8601 is a 60 minute cycle timer.
The dial should make 1 full revolution each 60 minutes.
Trippers or tabs located on dial are pushed up or down to set on-off schedule.

If dial is running slow, then clock motor has gone bad.
If dial is running on time, then trippers are worn down or timer parts are worn down.
Either case when timer stops functioning, buy a new timer for $110.
If the clock motor was available, you'd probably spend $60 for the motor.

I do not know how to set timer have tork 1011 24 hour timer


Open following link to identify timer, with information for trippers and replacement clock motor:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101

The clock motor rotates analog timer dial clockwise as time passes.
Trippers on the dial move lever that rotates a cam that opens and closes electric circuit.
To set current time, manually rotate timer dial until current time lines up with the word Timer located near the 5 o'clock position.
If the dial is not rotating oe keeping good time, then clock motor is bad.
If trippers don't move the lever, then trippers are worn down.

GE Indoor Outdoor Timer # 15306 the clock is working and the when the time for it to go on it goes on but when the time comes for it to shut off it does not trip the off switch. I then have to shut it down...


1) If analog dial keeps time, I can only guess that OFF tripper is not in position correctly, or tripper is worn or defective, or that manual override lever is defective. Trippers are made of softer metal so they wear down before other parts of timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/GE%2015306%20Mechanical%20Outdoor%20Box%20Timer-24%20Hour.jpg
2) Buy Tork P47 trippers to replace GE 15306 trippers
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#Trippers

3) Open following link for GE timer resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15306

4) 15306 is heavy-duty indoor-outdoor version of Tork 1800 series or 7200 series 120Volt analog timer that is sold online and at Home Depot under GE brand name.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Tork-1800-600.jpg

5) You can buy new timer at Home Depot and return defective one in new package.

6) The on and off trippers are attached to the analog dial.
Dial rotates as time passes.
Trippers make physical contact with the manual override lever. The ON tripper pushes lever one direction and the OFF tripper moves lever other direction.
The override lever rotates a cam located on back of timer that opens and closes electrical contacts.

How to set the 7 day timer on a T920L


Tork T920L is 120Volt electro-mechanical lighting control timer.

Minimum ON setting 1 hour
Minimum OFF setting 2 hours
7-day calendar dial
Timer comes with 7 pair of trippers
geno_3245_53.jpg

Rotate disc counter-clockwise until current time lines up with silver pointer.
Do not force dial clockwise.
Attach trippers to outside edge of dial at ON-OFF times.
Trippers are interchangeable ... When tripper screw is inserted on side marked ON, it is ON tripper ... turn tripper over and insert screw on side marked OFF, it is OFF tripper.
Store extra trippers in racks on either side of dial.

This is probably very similar to your timer.
The Tork 1100 series is electro-mechanical timer.
Lift and rotate dial to set current time.
Line up current time with the word Time located to lower right of dial.
The trippers are black and silver.
I think the black is OFF and silver is ON
Clock motor rotates dial as time passes.
Trippers contact a lever.
Off tripper pushes lever one way.
On tripper pushes lever other way.
The manual override clicks back and forth as trippers move lever.
To check function of timer, click manual override
Common problems:
1) Clock motor is not rotating dial
2) Trippers get stuck on lever and can't move lever because timer is dirty or worn out, or clock motor is bad.
3) Trippers are worn down and won't trip the lever.

Replacement of these timers is simple
Check out the functions and problems and then answer this post and I will help more if needed

I have a TORK 1103.. I have read and re read all wiring diagrams..my problem is.. it now turns on.. but doesnt click off.. unless i manually do it myself.. Im pretty sure i have all the wires connected to...


Tork 1103 controls 2 loads

Your wiring is OK ... if the dial rotates and the tripper turns ON the load, then your wiring is correct

It sounds like you forgot to put the OFF trippers on dial?? Or the OFF trippers are worn out.
Dark trippers = OFF
Light trippers ON

Look at the trippers up close ... as they arrive at the manual override, they make contact with a mechanical lever ... the motor then pushes the dial forward and the trippers flip the manual override lever on-and-off.

Is the manual override broken? I doubt it.
Are the OFF trippers worn down?

I have a 15 yr old tork 1101 pool timer. I misplaced the tripper pins the replacements P-47 dont fit. What do I do


1) Tork P47 tripper is correct tripper for 1101 timer.
Trippers are brass-colored and black-colored.
If they do not fit timer dial you might need new timer.

4) Intermatic cross reference shows replacement is T-101 indoor/non-weathertight
Amaxon sells T101 for 43$:

5) Raintight/outdoor: Aplus and Lowes sell raintight outdoor T-101R for $71

I don't know how to set the timer to come on a 7 pm, off at 11 pm. It is a tork 1103 electromechanical timer. Directions lost years ago and new homeowners (myself) do not know how to set the timer. Anne


See T1100 Tork timer on following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101

To set this timer, rotate clock dial clockwise until current time lines up with the word 'TIME' located at 5 o'clock position.
Place black and gold P47 trippers at times you want timer to turn on-and-off.
As time passes, the dial rotates. ON tripper flips a lever that turns Load ON, and then later, the OFF tripper flips same lever and turns Load OFF.
