Question about Intermatic Grasslin KM2ST-2D Timer, 2 Gang 24 Hour Timer with Decora Switch

Open Question

I am trying to reset my Grasslin Analog Timer. When I rotate the outer clock dial to line up the white triangle with the time of day, the clock hands move. When I try to adjust the clock hands the outer dial moves. I can't get them in sync. What am I doing wrong?

Our Intermatic clock operated switch Model T25/16FMD works and then stops. It is hanging up on something. You can spin it but it does not turn on and off the landscape lights. Any thoughts?


Replace timer.
Copy following link to identify timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#KM

If analog timer starts hanging, then motor is probably getting weak.
Use air pressure and blow out timer while rotating timer dial.
Turn power off and spay bit of highly flammable vapor from WD40 can while rotating timer dial.
Timers generally have 1 year limited warranty.
Replace timer.

Find the time now arrow to reset


1) Question posted under Woods 59017 analog timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59017

2) On the Woods 59017, the 'arrow' or triangle is a hollow triangle shape on inner timer dial. It points at the 3:00 position.
Manually rotate dial until current time lines up with arrow, arrowhead, or triangle.

3) On other analog timers, the time-now 'arrow' is usually small dark-colored triangle or arrowhead located on stationary part of inner dial.

4) Open following link to see how to set and use analog timers by experimenting with each feature.
Plus images of time-now arrowhead or triangle.

We have installed GM40 time. which control shaft on / off cycle i.e 4 hours on / 2 off. i checked selector switch postion, i.e continuous on (upper position) and continuous off (lower position) in this...


I have GM40 timer sitting in front of me.
I cannot understand your question because I do not know what the 'control shaft' is.
If you mean the black-colored FM1 clock dial with captive trippers, then this dial is supposed to rotate continually as long as timer has power.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/FM-1-Grasslin-Intermatic-20.jpg

Grasslin/Intermatic GM40 page
http://www.intermatic.com/products/grasslin/electromechanical%20time%20switches/multi-voltage%20time%20switches.aspx
The manual says quote:
With the manual switch in the middle position, the GM40 is in automatic mode and will switch at the programmed times. In the upper position "I", the load is permanently ON. In the lower position, "O", the load is permanently OFF. End quote.
In any switch position, the FM1 clock dial will continually rotate.

If your Load does not turn on-and-off according to the trippers set on FM1 clock dial, then 1) wiring is suspect or 2) if dip switches are not correctly set before applying voltage, and timer could be damaged.

The timer arrives with dip switches pre-set for 277Volts.

You can also manually rotate clock dial clockwise to observe when the load turns on-off.

Add a comment and give more information.
I would like to know what the 'control shaft' is, and what voltage you are using, and what dips switch setting you have, and which wires are connected to each terminal.

I want to reset the timer for hours of on-off for out water heater but can't figure out how to push the little white teeth in or out. Model is 265-1.


1) Open following link to read about re-circulation systems:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-recirculation-system.html

2) Image below show typical FM1 analog timer dial with pins:
Move pins with fingernail or small tool.
To test if pins need to be moved in or out, set pins each direction and manually rotate dial clockwise and listen when pump turns on-off.
How timer operates: clock motor rotates dial continually, pins on dial move lever that turns circuit on-off.
To set current time, manually rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Some timers have a selector switch: move switch to Auto, or Timer, or Timer ON. Again you can manually rotate dial and check which setting is correct.

I have a hager eh 110 time switch on my pool and I cant set it. Any clues?


Hagar EH 10 is 230V analog time switch.
EH010 is 1" wide.

1) See large image of EH010
http://www.bewdirect.co.uk/home/m/Shop/id/3985/page/1/

2) See large image that explains how to set EH-010
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/EH-010-image-1000.jpg

3) With analog timers, there is a movable dial that rotates with fingers.
Pins or segments are located around edge of dial.
Segments are moved one direction or the other to set on-off times.
After segments are set, the dial is rotated to match current time.
The dial rotates as time passes, and segments move a switch that opens and closes electric circuit.

4) EH-010 is different.
Usually analog dial is located on face of timer like a clock face.
However EH-010 is only 1" wide, so dial is perpendicular to front of timer and is rotated with thumb.

5) I suggest setting a few segments one direction or the other and then manually rotate dial full circle to watch when pool equipment turns on-off.
This will tell you if segments should be set right or left.
I have not seen this particular timer, but it appears as if times on printed on edge of timer dial.

6) Timer has 240V clock motor.
So Hot line wires from circuit breaker connect to terminals 1 and 2.
This powers clock motor so dial rotates as time passes.

240V Line and 240V Load wires are connected as shown in image below:

GE 15119 instructions please. The dial just says "time now." How do you know when light go on and off? Need directions. Can't believe there are none!


Here the help you need to set timer.

Rotate dial until current time lines up with black triangle located in center of dial
The black pointer remains stationary when you rotate outer dial
Now the outer edge of dial has 48 plastic segments that lift up

776e6ad.jpgHere are some segments lifted up on GE15207 timer

As I recall, segments-up timer OFF, segments-down timer ON

If you need more assistance, answer back and I will help

How to set the time and which is on out or in


pins IN = timer ON
pins OUT = timer OFF
Slide-switch must be pushed to right for timer to work
If dial is not rotating, wiring is incorrect (see below for wiring)
__________________________________________

Grasslin and Paragon both offer multiple-gang timers.

Grasslin manual says:
" For example, to turn lights ON at 5:00pm and OFF at
11:00pm, leave inward the 18 trippers between 5 and
11 on the "pm" side of the dial.

Link to Grasslin manual

Wiring timer:
Timer black goes to Hot wire
Timer red (or blue) goes to Load
Timer white goes to Neutral (if no neutral, then connect to bare ground)
If timer dial does not rotate, black and red wires are reversed

Can't seem to figure it out. Directions are not specific enough. We set "the time now", but the white/AM, dark/PM is weird. Please help w/ directions. We need the light for chicken house. Light on 5:00 AM...


What kind of Woods timer do you have?

Is the dial turning? The dial is the clock. And the clock needs electricity to work, just like alarm clock. If dial is not turning, the wiring is not right.

Does the manual override turn on the lights? Maybe the slider switch set to OFF? Set slider to "Timer" for timer functions to work.

Wall timer:
If you have 59017 wall timer, it has dark PM white AM. You rotate dial until correct time lines up with little triangle located on right side of center knob.
7e3b45a.jpg

There are 48 plastic pins on dial ... when pins are moved out, the lights are off. For timer functions, set slide switch to 'Timer'
Correct wiring is needed for timer to work:
Timer black attaches to Hot wire from breaker box
Timer red attaches to wire going to Load (lights)
Timer white must attach to white Neutral (or if your box has no neutral, connect white to bare ground)
Timer green connects to bare ground

If wiring seems right but dial on front of timer is still not rotating, then reverse Timer red and Timer black and see if that sorts out problem.

If this is wrong Woods timer, please re-post question.
