That's because the timer is mis-wired. The incoming wires from the circuit breaker _must_ be connected to terminals 1 and 3. The out going wires to the water heater must be connected to terminals 2 and 4.

The clock timer motor is connected internally to terminals 1 and 3, so it won't work if the incoming (always hot) wires are connected to terminals 2 and 4 (until you close the contacts by moving the manual lever to the ON position)

Why is my timer runnung backwards


Timer is not identified.
Analog timers have clock motor.
If the gears strip out, then timer can run backwards.
Some timers have replaceable clock motors, such as Intermatic and Tork box timers, and pool timers.

While small plug in timers generally do not have replacement parts.

ML600 won't turn off


The clock module for power pack is not sold separately.
Set timer to auto using override knob so lights are on, then plug power pack into cheap timer.
Check outlet with circuit analyzer.
Try connecting power pack to another outlet.
Copy following link for warranty information, tips to help power pack last longer, links to trippers, troubleshoot, etc.

Intermatic T104 timer wont turn pump on,despite being tripped


If override lever snaps back and forth crisp, and turns pump ON-OFF, then timer switch is good.
Try installing new trippers. The trippers wear down and start to slip over the trip lever.
If pump does not turn on-off with override, look for loose wires at breaker or pump.

Where can I find the manual for the Intermatic Incorporated Timer, Spst-125V 24Hr Mechanical 2 On/Off - PB913N84


There is no manual specific to the PB800-900 series timers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#PB
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Intermatic-PB800-PB900-timers.pdf

Timer uses 107TTN222 ON tripper and 107TN221 OFF tripper.
Push trippers onto dial at times you want timer to turn on-off.
Rotate dial until current time lines up with arrowhead located in center of timer dial.
images show that timer has override knob that can be rotated.
Timer has 4 terminal connections. 2 connections are for 120Volt clock motor, and 2 terminals are the switch for turning Load on-off.
Black hot wire and white neutral wire connect to clock terminals.
Switch terminals are dry.
Dry terminals mean they have no power when wires are connected to clock motor.
The switch terminals wire just like ordinary light switch: Power connects to one of the terminals, and wire to Load connects to other terminal. Neutral wire does not connect to switch terminals, just like wiring an ordinary light switch.
Offhand I do not know which set of terminals is for clock motor.
Use continuity tester on each set of terminals.
Clock terminals will show continuity at all times, no matter which position override knob is set.
Switch terminals will show continuity with override knob in one position, but not the other position.

I have an Intermatic T104R timer set up for my pool pump. It seems that the clock is running backwards. Why is that?


If dial is not rotating clockwise and keeping correct time on 240Volt T104 timer, then WG1573 clock motor is probably bad.

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.
