Question about Intermatic & Indoor/Outdoor Rain Tight Timer

1 Answer

I have a t101 timer that hasnt been used for 2 summers. It is used to run my pool pump. I installed a new receptacle outside for pump and now the pump continously runs without shutting on or off according to timer. The timer dial moves and the time is set right on the timer itself. If i turn manual switch to "off" the pump doesnt turn off. Could it be a bad manual switch? Thanks for any help.

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

I just replace a T101 with the same timer. The old one stopped turning. The new one has the same problem. It is getting power because I can manually switch on the pool pump. The timer just won't...


Hi,
The switch for the pool pump does not necessarily run from the same power as the timer motor...

Check for timer motor rated power on the first two terminals that run the timer motor...you may not have proper power there...you may have 120v but not 240 volt...

Need trippers for older unknown model number amf paragon pool timer. timer is 15 - 20 years old


Paragon no longer makes timers or parts, except defrost timers.
Typically, defrost timers are not used for pools.
Open following link to possibly identify timer and tripper part number.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html

If you want a new timer for pools, Intermatic makes the T101 120Volt and T104 240Volt:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

If you want T100 series timer with fireman's switch that turns off heater 10 minutes before turning off pump:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#pool

If you have energy-saving 2-speed pool pump, and thermostat and pool light, then buy P1353 digital timer with enclosure. Enclosure and timer sold together as P1353ME.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#P1353
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/PE100-series-with-P1353-timer.pdf
P1353 is not easy to wire or program for novice, so you can add a comment or repost question on fixya and I will catch it.

I am trying to wire a new Emerson 230v pool pump to a timer. The pump has 2 red wires and 1 green wire coming from it. The timer has 3 wire terminals. The receptacle has 1 black wire, 1 white wire and 1...


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.

Don't know what is it used for,and how it operates?I don't have any instructions for it.


You posted under T101 timer.
Most box timers have model number and instructions pasted on inside of door.
Instructions can seems a foreign language sometimes.

If your timer is different than T101, then add a comment with timer number.
I have extensive files on timers.

Box timers are generally used for heavy amperage loads like outdoor lights, swimming pool pumps, water heaters, parking lot lights and lighted outdoor signs.
They are surface mounted near breaker box, or in attic or basement, or garage.
Box timers are used in schools to ring bells, and inside factories to run processes and fans.
Some are complicated electronic devices used to control machines with one second precision.
Mechanical box timers are noisy when turning on-off, so are generally not installed in living area of house.

T101 timer is least complicated of any timer.
It is used for ordinary household 120V circuit.
Timer has 120Volt clock motor, and controls 120Volt circuit.
For example 120Volt water heater, or 120V grow lights, or aquarium, or any application up to 2 horsepower, for example timer can be located inside garage to control outdoor lights.
T101R is raintight outdoor box, with rubber gasket on door that seals tight when closed.
Raintight boxes are installed outdoors to operate 120Volt spas and pool pumps.
When box timer is rated for indoor, there is no rubber gasket on door, and that box is called NEMA 1 enclosure.
My local Lowes sells T101 T103 T104 > and each is for slightly different purpose and each wires differently.
Link below shows wiring and manuals for T100 series timers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

Here's how T100 series timer works:
Lift and rotate yellow dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.
Clock motor rotates dial as time passes.
Clock motors are accurate for years, but current time has to be reset after power outage.
ON-OFF trippers are placed on outer edge of dial.
Trippers push a lever, and lever turns circuit on-and-off.
ON tripper pushes lever one direction.
OFF tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
Each time lever is pushed, manual-override lever clicks back and forth with audible sound.

I have a 15 yr old tork 1101 pool timer. I misplaced the tripper pins the replacements P-47 dont fit. What do I do


1) Tork P47 tripper is correct tripper for 1101 timer.
Trippers are brass-colored and black-colored.
If they do not fit timer dial you might need new timer.
http://www.frontierlighting.com/find.jsp?a=1&ID=,Photo.Cells...Time.Controls,Replacement.Trippers

2) Buy new 120Volt indoor/non-weathertight Tork T1011
To identify timer for sure:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html

3) Google search Tork 1101 shows timer cost $83

4) Intermatic cross reference shows replacement is T-101 indoor/non-weathertight
Amaxon sells T101 for 43$:
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-T101-Hour-Dial-Timer/dp/B00002N5FN

5) Raintight/outdoor: Aplus and Lowes sell raintight outdoor T-101R for $71
http://www.lowes.com/pd_29405-251-T101RD89_0_

http://www.aplussupply.com/intermatic/timer.htm

6) Cross over wiring.
Tork terminal X is T101 terminal A
Tork terminal 1&L are T101 terminal 1
Tork terminal 2 is T101 terminal 2

Clock does not turn on


make sure the small white wires coming from the clock itself are installed on the "line" side of the terminals, those power the clock. If not, the switch will power the pump but the clock will not run.

Once T101 Timer Shuts Off will not turn back on


you have the hot and load reversed. the power source should connect to terminal 1. the wire going on to the pool pump should be hooked to terminal 2.

the clock motor is powered off terminal 1 and A is the neutral.

what u have done is hooked the power source to #2 and the load to #1, simply switch them and everything should be fine, here is a link to the wiring diagram for the timer.
