Question about TORK Timer 1 Channel Signal Timer Dgs100

Open Question

I have a Tork 1103 timer that I have had for many years and functions to turn my pool pump on and off. The timer works but the mechanism gets stuck at the tripper and does not turn from there. Has anyone had this problem? How do I fix?

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.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

SOURCE: i have a tork 1103 electromechanical switch. its working but wont

T1103 can be wired many ways.
T1103 has 240V clock motor.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101

You are connecting 240Volt pool pump to timer.
Open link below and see wiring diagram: look at bottom left diagram:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/110111021103WIRING.pdf

Electricians don't guess, they test.
Turn power off and separate wires for testing.
Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power.
Stand on dry boards. Wear dry clothes.
Do not touch anything metal.
Turn power ON.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
For 240V circuit, two different wires should light up tester. Working from your description, by code, these wires should be black and red.
Each of these wires is Hot wire.
These are called Line wires, wires going to pump are called Load wires.
Hot wires connect to terminals L and 1. This will power the clock motor and dial will rotate as time passes, assuming clock motor is good.

Hots are identified.
Test one of the hot wires to remaining wire, and not to bare ground.
Tester lights up on Neutral wire. This should be white wire.
Double check that Neutral wire did not light up on bare ground.
Neutral is not connected to any 1103 terminal.

Remaining wires go to Load (pool pump).
By code, assuming Hot Lines are Red and Black, the Red & Black Load wires connect to X terminal and 2 terminal, in either order. One wire on each terminal.
White wire connects to Neutral wire and is covered with wire nut.

SOURCE: I have a Tork 1104

Hi,
The internal mechanism will wear and then the timer mechanically will not turn of...but if you do it manually the contacts will break, shutting the load off...

You will need to replace the complete timer...there is no way to rebuild the mechanical part of the timer...

I think you have 120Volt pool pump.
Add a comment if this is incorrect since wiring information is based on this assumption.

(1) Wiring problem:
Evidence shows timer is wired in reverse (dial only rotates when pump is ON, and dial stops rotating when pool pump is OFF)
Electrician reversed the wires, but wires need to be tested.
Hot wire from circuit breaker always connects to L
Neutral wire from breaker box connects to unmarked terminal.
This will give clock motor continuous power.
Next:
Black wire going to Load (pump) connects to X
White wire going to Load connects to unmarked terminal along with Neutral wire.

Tork 1103 is SPDT timer with 3 watt 120volt clock motor that can control multiple loads and voltages, and can be wired many different ways.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/1103INSTALLOP.pdf

(2) Loose dial. The dial should only rotate counterclockwise when moved with hand. The fact that trippers work when rotated by hand says dial is probably not problem. If timer is used, and trippers skip over and do not turn on Load (pump) then order P47 replacement trippers.

This is probably very similar to your timer.
The Tork 1100 series is electro-mechanical timer.
Lift and rotate dial to set current time.
Line up current time with the word Time located to lower right of dial.
The trippers are black and silver.
I think the black is OFF and silver is ON
Clock motor rotates dial as time passes.
Trippers contact a lever.
Off tripper pushes lever one way.
On tripper pushes lever other way.
The manual override clicks back and forth as trippers move lever.
To check function of timer, click manual override
Common problems:
1) Clock motor is not rotating dial
2) Trippers get stuck on lever and can't move lever because timer is dirty or worn out, or clock motor is bad.
3) Trippers are worn down and won't trip the lever.

Replacement of these timers is simple
Check out the functions and problems and then answer this post and I will help more if needed

I have a 110 Pool Pump and I am trying to wire it into a Tork1103NC timer. From the pool pump I have a black, white and green wire that I need to wire into the timer. Can you tell me what position those...


0fde0d6.jpg

Here is Tork 1103 wired for single load.

1) The green pump wire and bare copper wire go to green ground screw
2) Pump black wire goes to pole 2, the NO (normally open) pole
3) Pump white wire goes to unmarked screw

4) Black from circuit breaker goes to pole L
The T1103 comes with a removable brass bar that connects pole L and pole 1
If that removable brass bar is not there, then add a jumper between pole L and pole 1 as shown in diagram above
5) White neutral from breaker box goes to unmarked pole (all whites connect to unmarked pole)

In your case, pole X is not used. Pole X is NC or normally closed > which means the power is ON continuously until timer turns on, and when timer turns ON, the NC pole turns OFF

My tork pool timer is not shutting the filter off. It gets stuck in the area that turns the pool filter off. The timer turns the filter on fine. When it gets stuck it also stops the timer. Any ideas????...


Turn the electric off to the timer and carefully try to clean and dust, dirt, corrosion off the timer points. Turn the electric back on and try it out. If it is still malfunctioning it is probably time to replace it. Good luck.
