Question about Intermatic & Indoor/Outdoor Rain Tight Timer

1 Answer

Clock will not turn or is turning at the rate of one hour for ever 6. (approx) I do have 240 volts across the 1 & 3 poles of the timer and both white wires for the clock are in place on these same terminals. Also all other pump and thermostat functions work properly when using the manual switch so I'm reasonably sure it's wired correctly. What's up?

You didn't indicate what model tomer you have. Check the badck of the motor to see what voltage the motor is. Be sure it is a 240V motor. If all that is in place, suspect a bad timer motor. You can buy a replacement motor. www.intermatic.com for manual and parts.

I have 110 volts n each leg but not 220 across both why??


In a traditional North American residential electrical panel (120/240 volt, single phase), installing a single width or single pole circuit breaker, you would expect to read 120 volts from the breaker terminal screw to either ground or neutral. A double width or double pole breaker would provide 120 volts from either of the breaker terminal screws to ground or neutral AND it will provide 240 volts BETWEEN the TWO breaker terminals.

A single-width circuit breaker case that contains two handles is NOT a two pole circuit breaker (these are called "tandem" or "1/2 size" breakers). This is because a single width breaker engages only one "line" in the panel. A double width breaker will engage 2 "lines" as a triple width breaker would engage 3 "lines" of a 3 phase panel. A single wide breaker can not physically engage more than 1 "line" so it will never be able to pass 240 volts.

You must install a double width / double pole breaker to safely supply a 240 volt circuit / device.

How do I wire a double pole double throw 240 volt ge intermatic timer to 4 240 volt plugs?


You posted under GE timer, but added the brand name Intermatic.
GE and Intermatic timers are totally different.
Wiring below is for GE and will not apply to Intermatic.

Step 1) lets cover basic GE timer wiring for 240Volt load.
Be sure to set dip switches BEFORE applying power.
Step by step illustrations show on following link.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-GE-15207-timer.html

Step 2) Load wires exit GE timer.
There are two Hot wires and 1 bare ground wire.

Step 3) Wire the outlets: You have 4 240Volt plugs.
This could mean a receptacle-type outlet like a clothes dryer outlet or air conditioner outlet.
Or it could be a twist-lock receptacle or extension-cord-type stage plug.
In all cases, look at screw color on device.
Connect Hot wires to brass colored screws.
Connect ground wire to green screw.

Step 4) Calculate total Load
Manual appears below: Look at Normally Open contacts. These contacts turn ON when timer turns ON.
http://waterheatertimer.org/15087-15207-56922-Manual-eng.pdf
Total load on all 4 plugs cannot exceed 2 HP
Generally, a 30 amp timer is rated for max 24 Amps or 6 amps per each of the 4 plugs.
Volts x amps = watts.
Take total watts and divide by 240Volts to get amps.

Hello can i get the instuctions for tork timer model 1191 please?


According to Intermatic conversion chart, Tork 1191 is same as Tork 1101.

Link to 1101 .pdf
Link to Tork manuals

Tork 1101 is dial-type mechanical timer. Dark pins turn OFF. Light pins turn ON.

Clock motor is 120V
Hot black wire from breaker connects to pole L
Neutral white wire from breaker connects to pole X
Removable bridge connects poles L &1 together
If bridge is gone, Hot from breaker must also connect to pole 1
Black wire to Load connects to pole 2
White wire to Load connects to pole X

Timer can control 240V Load if removable bridge between poles L and 1 is taken out.
Timer clock is still 120V: so 120V Hot still connects to pole L and neutral from breaker connect to poles X
240 V circuit has two hot lines: Hot line 1 and Hot line 2
240 volt Hot line 1 from breaker connects to pole 1
240 volt Hot line 1 to load connects to pole 2
240V Hot line 2 goes directly to Load and does not connect to any pole

Clock turns untill pump turns on then stops. does c8866 timer work with well control box?


If I understand correctly, you are controlling 240V water well pump with Intermatic C8866 Repeat timer.

So you must be using pump to irrigate, and want to turn pump on at certain times of day for short periods ... and want this schedule to repeat continually non-stop.

1) The c8866 repeats the same program every 4 hours so this is good choice for irrigation and it just turns the circuit on-and-off so it works fine with well control box (unless you want more complex programming).
Many types and prices of cycle timers
More cycle timers

Let me give a buckshot answer and see if I hit one of the targets you have.

2) C8866 according to manual:
a) You have on-off trippers
b) First ON tripper turns on load for 32-40 seconds
c) Each additional ON tripper will lengthen ON time by 30 seconds

3) To lengthen ON time: add successive ON trippers into dial. Each successive tripper adds 30 seconds. Let's say you want ON time to be 3 minutes, you need 6 successive ON trippers.
Maximum timer setting is 240 minutes, so your ON-OFF program repeats every 4 hours.
10 Tripper pins come with timer.
Buy more pins at Grainger for 2.69

4) Did you say the clock stops running after hitting the tripper? If so, maybe you need a bit of grease on the pins ... or a new clock motor? Buy clock motors at Aplus
5) Review the wiring
Hots from Breaker connect to COM and CLOCK poles
1 Hot to Load connects to NO normally open pole
Other Hot to load connects to CLOCK pole

6) You can reverse ON-OFF programming by the following:
Change Hot to Load from NO to NC pole and this will reverse on-off programming

How do i wire my diehl 880 ?


1) Here is Diehl 880 instruction manual

2) Diehl 880 is 120V timer
-1/2 HP
-1000 Watt tungsten. Tungsten means incandescent light bulbs.

3) Checklist:
a) Your load does not exceed capacity > Timer is too lightweight to control 1500 toaster oven.
b) You need 120V line coming from breaker box with black Hot wire and white Neutral
c) You need 120V line going to Load that also has black and white wire
d) Test each black wire to ground to see which black wire is HOT

4) Deihl 880 sell sheet pdf says 880 is available SPST (single pole single throw) -or- SPDT (single pole double throw).
-The difference is pole #4 on the timer.
-If you are trying to turn one circuit off just as another circuit turns on, then you need the SPDT
-If you are turning one circuit on-and off, then the following instructions are for you

5609d99.jpg

5) Wire clock
-There are 5 poles > look for markings 1-thru-5
-If no marking, then poles 1&2 are probably spaced apart from other poles
-Connect Hot and Neutral wires to poles 1&2 >> this powers clock motor, they go on either pole

-Pole 4 not used

6) Wire timer
-Poles 3&5 are timer circuits
-Connect Hot line to pole 3
-Connect black wire going to Load to pole 5
-Connect white wire from Load to Neutral

Clock does not work to turn pool filter on and off. do I need a new timer mechanism or clock motor


Things to check:

1) Is yellow dial rotating? If not, then clock motor is probably bad. T-100 240V time clock motor sells for $16 at grainger.
Also timer may not be getting 240V so check manual override.

2) If clock motor is turning, but manual override never clicks on-and-off, then pins are probably worn out. Buy pins at grainger

3) Does manual override work? Does it click crisp? If manual override clicks crisp on-and-off, and pool filter turns on-and-off normally, then a) the circuit is getting 240V and b) the timer mechanism is ok ... so clock motor is probably bad.

4) If manual override snaps crisp but pool timer does not turn on, then then circuit breaker could be bad, wire is loose, motor has gone bad
Test for 240 across poles 1 and 2
... or timer contacts are worn out & you need new T-104
See back of mechanical timer

5) If manual override is loose or sluggish, then you need new T104. You can buy a T-104, T-104R, T-104M etc ... and the interior body will snap into old box.

Note: Do not buy T-101 or T-103 as these have 120V motor.

Re-check your wiring. The 2 incoming 240 volt wires from the circuit breaker connect to terminals 1 and 3. The 2 outgoing 240 volt wires going to the load connect to terminals 2 and 4. If it is connected any other way you will get symptoms such as you describe.

The 240 volt timer clock motor is connected internally to terminals 1 and 3, so if you connected the incoming 240 volt wires to say, terminals 1 and 2, then the clock motor is only getting 120 volts. If you inadvertently connected the incoming 240 volt wires to terminals 2 and 4, then the timer clock motor is getting no voltage.

In both cases of mis-wiring stated above, the timer clock motor will start running when the manual lever is in the ON position, and of course, the load will then turn ON.

Timer stopped running so I replace timer motor. However the timer still does not run. I can still turn pool pump on manually. Will I have to replace entire unit?


T103 clock motor is 125 volt WG1570
1) If you bought the 240V WG1573, the clock will not operate
2) If you connected the motor wires to wrong terminals, then clock will not operate.
3) If original box label says T103, but 240V T104 was installed in same box, and you bought wrong voltage motor
4) Test for 120Volts across terminals A and 1, and make sure clock motor matches voltage of timer, and clock motor wires are connected to terminals A and 1.

T103 clock not working


Please read all of this post. You may burn up the 120 volt T103 timer motor is you are not careful.

The statement: "I have 120v board with 120 constant and 240 timed" is not very clear to me as to what you mean.

In US residential wiring, the white wire is not always the "neutral;" The white wire is sometimes used for 240 volt circuits.

We cannot tell you how to wire your timer unless we know _exactly_ what you have.

If your incoming supply cable (from the breaker box) has 3 wires (black, white, and bare), there are two scenarios:

1...If the voltage from black (hot) to white (ALSO hot in this case) is 240 volts, and you have only 3 wires (black, white, and bare), then the T103 is the _wrong_ timer if you are trying to control a 240 volt load. You should use a T104 timer.

The T104 uses a 240 volt timer motor and the T103 uses a 120 volt timer motor.

2...If the voltage between black and white is 120 volts, then you will only be able to control 120 volt loads; then the incoming black supply wire is connected to terminal 3 and the white (neutral) wire is connected to the "A" terminal. The bare equipment grounding wire is then connected to the "GR" terminal.

To show the difference, if you are trying to control a 240 volt load, to use a T103 and wire it _correctly_, you would need to have a incoming supply cable with a total of 4 wires (black, red, white (neutral), and bare) Black to red would be 240 volts. Black to white would be 120 volts. Red to white would be 120 volts.
The connections would be as follows:
White (neutral in this case) to the "A" terminal
Black to terminal 1
Red to terminal 3
The 240 volt load would then connect to terminals 2 and 4
Both the bare equipment grounding wires are connected to the "GR" terminal.

Since you did not mention a red wire, I can only ASSUME that this is not the case.

Sorry, we can't tell you how to wire this timer based upon assumptions.

So, what do you have?

My intermatic timer won't trip back on


I don't think the timer runs on 240 volts does it? You can switch 240, but the timer uses 120 volts to run. You might check the connections and timer clock rating more closely. Also, the 'off' & 'on' trippers are different, make sure you use the right one.
