Question about Intermatic & Indoor/Outdoor Rain Tight Timer
I installed a T101R to my pool pump, replacing the manal switch. There are 3 wires coming to the unit, 2 black, one green. I know that the green is nuetral. one black goes to A the other to Line 1. The pump wires are set to A and Load 2. Timer will not work, but the manual leverl will turn the pump on and off. What is wrong?
Someone posted that the white clock wires should be hooked to the "line" side of the terminal. What does that mean?? They come pre-hooked to the A and Line 1.
The "Line" is the power source. The "load" is the device that is being powered.
typically the green wire is the ground wire. I strongly urge you to verify your assumption that is is the common wire. If the green is indeed the ground, and it gets hooked up to common, you will be energizing the cabinet of the unit and posing a serious shock hazzard.
Your curcuit will be as follows.
The power source "Line" will have wires going to the timer. (hooked to the "line" terminals on the timer.)the timer then is supplying the power to the pool pump, and we will reffer to it as the "line".
The two black wires from the pump would be hooked up to the "load" side of the timer.
Typically they would be labled line 1 and line 2 or "L1" and "L2"
If yours are not labled so, describe exactly what terminals you have in detail in both the pump and the timer.
