If you can give the make and model of the timer, I can probably find the wiring diagram and explain it to you with certainty. But here's a little bit of info that may help you figure it out. The timer and relay need power to operate all of the time - so unlike a manual switch, you will have to connect the hot (usually black) wire AND the neutral (usually white) wire to this device. However, like a manual switch, only the hot wire get's "switched" - so the hot wire has to feed into the switching contacts of the relay, with the output from the relay going to the pump. Of course the neutral has to go to the pump too, but it's not switched. Another thing to know is that many relays have output that is "normally open" (that's off), and another output that is "normally closed" (that's on).

Pool pump breaker tripping


1) Not likely the timer is problem, unless there was fire or overheating in timer box. Use nose and eyes to inspect for signs of high heat.

2) Eliminate timer as suspect:
Move wires on timer to test if timer relays have gone bad.
Move terminal 4 to terminal 3
Move terminal 2 to terminal 1
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T104

3) Check watt rating of Hayward pump, and voltage.
1Hp motor at 240Volt draws 8 amp, and can draw 6 to 8 times that amount when starting. Up to 100 feet, should be at least 12 gauge wire and double-pole 20 amp breaker. Over 100 feet, 10 gauge wire and 30 amp double-pole breaker is best.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire.html#motor

4) Intermatic T104 240V timer is rated 40 amps
Can safely handle 1 Hp motor without nearing heat-rating capacity of timer

5) Make sure the motor is wired correctly for 240Volts.
If motor is wired for 120, and 240 is applied, then tripped breaker can result.

Wiring for timer


T101P3 is ordinary 120Volt T101 mechanism inside a beige plastic box.
Rated 40 amp.
Three terminals A 1 2
Very small white wires that power the WG1570 clock motor are connected to terminals A and 1.

White neutral wire from breaker box connects to terminal A
Black Hot wire from breaker connects to terminal 1.
This will power the clock motor, which will switch the timer on-off.
Green ground wire and bare copper wires connect to green ground screw.

115volt motor should have 2 wires.
Connect white wire to terminal A
Connect black wire to terminal B

How to wire my intermatic GM40 to a two speed pool motor


Copy following link for illustration showing GM40 controlling 2-speed pool pump.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-GM40-timer.html#pool
Same wiring applies for 120Volt or 240Volt.
Voltage, Wire colors and wiring illustration appear on pump name plate.
Be sure to set dip switches before applying voltage to timer.
Do not test wires by sparking against terminals. Use a tester.

Model 4001-ov trips the circuit breaker.


Assuming you have Paragon 4001 40 amp 120Volt timer
By-pass the timer so only pool pump is connected to breaker.
To do this, move wire from terminal 2 and connect to terminal 1.
If breaker no longer trips, then replace timer with Intermatic T101
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101
Crossover wiring: Paragon terminal 1 goes to Intermatic terminal 1.
Paragon terminal 2 to Intermatic terminal 2.
Paragon terminal 3 to Intermatic terminal A
If breaker keeps tripping after bypassing timer, then tighten wires on circuit breaker and test again.
If breaker keeps tripping, then move wires to another same-size breaker.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-circuit-breaker.html
Breakers trip when they sense overheating.
If motor is causing problem, you might need electrician to track down source of overheating.

You really need a 2-pole timer -- 2 wires in and 2 out. In that case the Black/White from the receptacle goes to the 2 "in" terminals and the 2 red wires from the pump go to the 2 "out" terminals. The WHITE wire from the receptacle goes nowhere - tape it off. The Bare wire from the receptacle goes to the GREEN (ground) wire on the pump.
A single-pole timer can be used, but in that case, you ALWAYS have 110 v on one side of the pump. Not safe, and not code compliant.

I don't think the timer is causing the problem.
There is no delay switch on the timer or inside the household electrical circuit breaker or household wires.
The contact point(s) located on back of timer mechanism are mechanically pushed together and pulled apart with the manual override lever.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Back-of-WH40-2b-500.jpg
You can test timer:
Test across terminals A and 1 should show continuous 120V no mater what position override lever.
Flip override to OFF, then test terminals A and 2 should show 0 volts.
Flip override to ON, then test terminals A and 2 should show 120V: If A and 2 show 120Volts and pump is not ON, then problems is between timer and pump or at pump.
Look at wiring terminals on timer. Only copper wire should be under the screw plate. No insulation under screw plate. Two different size wires on same terminal will cause loose connections. Stranded wire and solid copper wire under same screw plate will also cause loose connections.

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-Intermatic-timer.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

Sounds like a loose wire or short at the circuit breaker box, timer wiring terminals, or at pump.
Check all screw terminals and wire nuts. Look for smell or signs of heat and burning. Look for connections where two different size wires are connected. Look for connects where stranded wire and solid copper wire connect.

The instructions are available from Intermatic if you click on the below link.

http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/files/intermatic/products/instructions/timers/t104%20-%20english.ashx

240 volts will have two 120 volt lines and a ground(green or bare) or neutral (white) wire.

If your system is 240 volts the Red and Black wires are hot should be individually connected, one to terminal 1 and the second color to terminal 3. The load or pump in your case should be connected to terminal 2 and 4. If you want to wire a switch to the load you need to decide on how you want the switch act, 1) as an auxiliary on 2) as an emergency off. If you want an auxiliary on for the pump, you need a DPDT (Double Pole Double Throw) 40amp switch (what should be in the house). Run the appreciate gage of wire (AWG 8 for 40A) from terminal 1 to one pole of the switch and a wire from terminal 3 to the second pole of your switch. Next run wires from the switch contacts from the two remaining switch terminals to terminals 2 and 4 on the timer matching the Red side on the switch to and Red on the timer and Black side on the switch to Black on the timer. The timer will control the function of the pump, and the switch will turn the pump on when the timer is off. If you only have two hot wires coming from the house attach them to terminal 2 and 4. If you want an emergency stop you need to wire a second DPDT 40amp switch and disconnect the load wires from terminal 2 and 4 and connect each one to the opposite poles of the switch. Using the correct gage of wire you need to connect a red and black wire to the two separate terminals of the switch. When the switch is off the pump will not work but the timer will keep the current time. The color of wires may not be the same in that situation you will need a multi meter to identify the wires.

I need a little more information on the pool sweep timer. Are you using the same timer or just the power? Is the power 120 or 240 volts? When do you want the pool sweep to be active?

How do I connect my 2 speed pool motor?


1) You might need a different timer.
240Volt T106 has one NO terminal and one NC terminal.
http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/files/intermatic/products/instructions/timers/t106r%20-%20english.ashx

2) Terminal 1 is NC terminal
NC terminal is 'normally closed' so electricity flows continually through this terminal.
For example you can connect this terminal to speed-1.
So speed-1 is on until timer turns on, and then electricity is turned off to NC terminal and speed-1 stops.

3) Terminal 4 is NO terminal
NO terminal is 'normally open' so electricity flows through this terminal only when timer turns on.
For example you can connect this terminal to speed-2.
So NO terminal only has power when timer turns on.
When timer turns off, NO terminal turns off and NC terminal turns on again.

4) As you can see, the problem with T106 timer is that pool motor is continually running.
Either speed-1 is on, or speed-2 is on.

5) Here's how to wire T106 for 240V two-speed pump:
Two hot wires arrive from breaker box: 1 black wire and 1 white wire.
White connects to terminal A
Black connects to terminal 3.
Three wires go to motor.
Speed-1 connects to terminal 1 probably black wire
Speed-2 connects to terminal 2 probably red wire
Remaining motor wire connects to terminal A probably white wire
Ground wires connect to green ground screw.

6) Usually, 2-speed pool pumps are wired to dual timer like T10404R
So each speed is wired to a separate timer.
With this timer, each speed is connected to separate timer, and then the pump can be turned off when neither speed is needed.
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-2-Speed-Timer-208-277-T10404R/dp/B002UBPCDW/ref=pd_sim_sbs_hi_1

7) However there is a newer electronic timer P1353ME and P1353ME-6 and PE153 that can control 3 different loads. This timer snaps into any T106 box.
For example speed-1 is one load, speed-2 is another load, and a pool light can be third load, or simply do not use third load.
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-P1353ME-3-Circuit-Digital-Switch/dp/B001DSEC7A

http://1000bulbs.com/product/3352/ELEC-PE153.html

8) I am familiar with wiring and programming for P1353 timer, and you can post again on fixya, and I will catch the question.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Need wiring diagram for Intermatic 240V Mechanical Time Switch


For anyone else who may be reading this post, these instructions are for the T104 ONLY.
Connect your incoming line) 240 volt wires to terminals #1 and 3. Connect the outgoing 240 volt (load) wires to terminals # 2 and 4. Don't forget to connect both equipment ground wires (bare or green) to the "GR" terminal.
Do NOT connect anything to the "A" terminal.
