Question about Intermatic & Indoor/Outdoor Rain Tight Timer

1 Answer

I have a Tork timer that is not working properly. Actually the timer part is not moving at all on it's own but that doesn't matter as I can just turn it on manually at night when I get home. My problem is that I can not figure out how to get the different zones to work. There are 4 zones coming out of the pump of which two are used, one for the front and one for the back. Sometimes the front will turn on and sometimes the back but not in any consistent matter. From what I can still read inside the box the model number is 12/76/5902. Please help. Thanks! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v618/chucky_vs_alf/IMG_1557.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v618/chucky_vs_alf/IMG_1554.jpg [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v618/chucky_vs_alf/IMG_1557.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v618/chucky_vs_alf/IMG_1554.jpg[/IMG]

Tork 651 timer is dawn-dusk that automatically turns on at dusk.

If you want ordinary 24-hour on-off timer for outdoors, instead of dawn-dusk timer, then select Tork 611A or Tork 601, or Tork 611 timer shown on same link above.

If clock is rotating on time, next suspect is P47 trippers have worn down. Trippers are made of softer metal so they wear down instead wearing down the on-off lever, and that way the timer lasts longer.

Could be loose wiring, or bad clock motor.
Check if wires are connected, and make sure only the copper part of wire and no insulation is under the screw plate.
Make sure all wires are same gauge so that screw plate clamps down on wires.

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.

How to set times


You posted under Tork 8000 series cycling timer
Open following link to identify timer for sure and download wiring and instruction manuals.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#8000

Cycling timers have built-in trippers (or tabs) located on outer edge of dial
Lift each tripper up and rotate it toward center of dial to set on-off times.
The dial rotates as time passes, and the trippers move lever that turns load on-off.

For example if you have 8601 timer, the dial cycles every 60 minutes or once per hour.
Each tripper represents 1 minute.
So if you want NO terminals turned ON for 2 minutes each hour, then move 2 successive trippers up.
If you want NC terminals turned ON for 58 minutes, then leave 58 successive trippers down.

How do you program a Tork 602A timer? I can't get mine to cycle on and off at a desired time.


The Tork 602A mechanical outdoor timer with 2 grounded outlets.
Tork 601A and 602A manual
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Tork-601A-Manual.pdf
Manual has images of timer that will help.

Plug timer into outdoor outlet.
To set current time, rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Dial is divided into light and dark sections that represent day or nighttime hours.
Reset time after power outage.

96 pins located around timer dial are used to set on-off times.
Each pin represents 15 minutes in 24 hour day
Move pins in-or-out with fingernail or ink pen to set timer on-off functions.
With Tork timers, usually when pins are out, timer is ON.
When pins are in, timer is OFF.
To double-check pin setting, manually rotate timer to watch when lights turn on-off.

Set multiple ON/OFFs each day.
Change on-off times by resetting a pin or two.
Timer repeats every 24-hours.

Manual ON/TIMER switch is located on inner dial.

Set Manual switch to TIMER for programs to operate.
To override time and turn on Load, move override to ON position.
