Question about Intermatic & Indoor/Outdoor Rain Tight Timer

1 Answer

I just had a new pool installed and it has a T104P3 timer. The timer worked satisfactory for the first week but will not turn the pump on in the morning. I have to manually turn the pump on and the off trip will turn it off at night. Why does the on trip not turn the pump on in the morning.

I bought a new intermatic t104p3 and it wouldn't turn on automatically


You have to have the On and Off "trippers" firmly installed against the yellow timer dial and the thumb screws on them must be tight. Turn the time dial by hand to be sure it trips the lever back and forth. If that part if working OK then you will need someone to come and make sure the load (device you're controlling) is connected to it properly and of course the timer is indeed running and appears to be keeping the correct time. You can check that a half hour after setting it to the current time.

What position is lever on intermatic pool timer t104p3 for timer to work?


Lever automatically moves back and forth as trippers pass.
Move lever to ON position, move to the right.
If timer dial is not rotating, then check wiring, or replace clock motor:
If timer worked before and stopped working, but dial still rotates, the trippers are worn down, replace trippers:

I have a T104P3 timer for my pool pump. It has already been replaced once by the pool installers. However, they are not helping me again with my problem. The time is set correctly as well as the turn on...


Sounds like the ON tripper is worn down.
Check that dial is rotating correctly each 24-hours. If not then wiring might be wrong.

Intermatic t104p3 pool timer will turn pump ""ON" with Manual Switch but will not shut "OFF" using Manual Toggle. Pool store showed me how to remove and look at the contacts on...


Thank you for including model number so answer can be accurate as possible.

T104P3 timer works with manual override so timer is basically sound.
Clock dial rotates and keeps good time, so WG1573 240Volt clock motor is good.
Trippers do not click on-off lever, so trippers are suspect.
Trippers are made to wear down so that timer mechanism lasts years longer.

How to set Intermatic T104P3 - Pool-Spa Mechanical Time Switch... I believe this is the correct model. There are no instructions or data left on the gray metal box to verify what it is.. I got the model...


The T-104 is a 240Volt timer that will not work for 120V circuits
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

The above link gives you information about the T104 T103 T101 in case you need to buy another timer
The difference is the voltages on the lines and voltage of the clock

1) How to sort out what you have:
-Which circuit breaker operates the timer and pump? If your circuit breaker is 240, then the pump is 240 and the timer is 240 so you most likely have the T-104
-To double-check: turn off the power and look at the name plate on the pump >>> the name plate will show voltage of the pump
-If breaker is 120, then you have T-101 that has three terminal screws inside the timer, or you have T-103 with 5 terminal screws inside the timer.

OK that's the basic information:
You say your trippers don't work.
Does the manual override work?

2) If the manual override does NOT work when you click it back and forth, and the unit has electricity, then the timer is probably bad. You can buy a new timer, and swap out the insides with old timer without replacing box.

3) If the manual override DOES work, then best news of all ... you may need new tripper pins

I moved the time pinter by accident. now the timer


Did you mix up the pointers? One of them is for off and one for on. Dont know any other reason. If the timer is working all the pointers do is manually trip the lever as it comes past. On and Off should be stamped on the pointer.
