If i need to turn the spa on i just step on the nob next to in and it goes on or off. My problem is, lately the spa turns on it self and just keeps going till i turn it off. It is so random, like once or twice a week. Besides that all is working fine.

You will probally have to replace the air tube that runs from the spa to the equiptment. With time you will build up condensation in the tube and that will cause the problem you describe.

How can i set up the time of the pool light in the a box model T10004R?

Typical T1000R series pool control center has space for 2 timers, and comes with one T104M 240Volt timer. Additional timer mechanism can be added to control lights, etc.

Copy following link for setting T104 series Intermatic clock, with link to wiring diagrams.

Intermatic pool timers are extremely durable and versatile, and modular so they can be repaired almost indefinitely using ez-to-locate parts

I have an Intermatic 4 function Air Switch with Timer RC2343PT for my pool and spa blower switch. The timer no longer turns off at night. I have to manually turn the breaker off each night and turn it on...

You might need new trippers?
Problem is not fully clear.
Can't tell what is new, and what is not working. Add a comment.

You have a new timer with same problem as old timer.
And you have a new control box and switch.
At your new house.
You have RC2343PT air switch, likely with PB913N84 24-hour timer module with manual override knob. RC2343PT.jpg

The RC2343PT air switch operates a pool-n-spa blower switch.
Pool and spa blower successfully turns on-and-off with circuit breaker.

Did you install a new PB913N84 timer module?
Are both ON-and-OFF trippers present? Are the 107TN222 and 107TN221 on-off trippers worn down and need replacement?
Does the timer dial rotate and keep good time?
What happens when you manually rotate the timer dial clockwise two rotations? Does the blower turn on-and-off?
Have you checked wiring terminals for signs of loose or burned connections?

Add a comment with more information for possible additional help.

My intermatic pool tmer will not set time or let me auto. turn to on so I can't filter or backwash pool

Problem points to electric power.

1) For best possible free answer, please add a comment and give model number that shows inside timer door.
This will give expert access exact manual for the equipment you have, and show what voltage you are working with.

2) You can also review Intermatic pool timer sell sheet, and pool timer site to help identify product:

3) If you have mechanical dial timer, see if manual override works.
And then check electric power.
Check circuit breaker.
Check if manual override works.

4) If you have P1353 digital electronic timer:
P1353 digital electronic timers have auto setting.
Check programming.
Programming for P1353 is complicated, and longer than space allowed for free answer.
Programming starts on page 25, and you can add a comment about any specific part of manual that is confusing.

The freeze protection thermostat has gone bad.
To confirm this, disconnect wiring from freeze control.

Freeze control can be purchased separately.

I have an intermatic RC3621RT 5 circuit timer with remote controls for the spa. I'd like to upgrade, but I cant find a cross reference for a new box that would be the same. Can you help?

Following pdf file shows Intermatic pool and spa controls and Spa.ashx.pdf
PE40000 series has remote control and 5 SPST circuits (3 timed with timer and 2 on-demand with remote control). Can be wired for both 120V and 240V circuits, so pump can be 240 and lights 120, or both 120.

The new timers are electronic

My Interamtic has a switch for the spa areator but will not work from the spa. It will activate if I short out leads at the controller. Is this a problem with the swithch or is there water or debris in the...

You could have one of several problems.
The air operated switch may be faulty.
There may be an air leak at either end of the pipe linking the switch and the control button or the pipe is kinked or blocked.
It could also be a worn or cracked o-ring in the control button which is not allowing the the control to provide sufficient air pressure to operate the switch.
Check all the pipe fittings for air leaks/restrictions. . If air pressure appears sufficient, then switch should be replaced

I have Jandy RS4 system with 4-button poolside controls for additional spa control. Inside house control panel stays totally lit up saying ''Rev 6700'', and cannot communicate or control pool operations. ...

Pull the cover off the control panel. You will probably find a button which would be accessible from outside the panel with a paper clip or pencil but is unlabeled. On the board itself by the button, in small letters it should say "reset". Push the button and see what happens.
