My son bought a new house. It has an Intermatic K4221 photo cell that never appears to work. It looks like it is connected to porch lights. They won't come on either by photocell or manual light switch. He...


Place tape over photocell lens, and flash switch off-on. Did the light come on?If you know how - remove the photocell from the circuit and see if the light works. If the light works, then the photocell is probably bad. Check power from switch to photocell with test meter.

Outdoor 3-Outlet Photocell Timer


Photocell is 'seeing' lights and thinks it's dawn so it turns off.
When lights are off, timer thinks it's night and clicks back on.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#troubleshoot

1) Turn photoeye away from lights.
2) Buy new timer since photoeye is first thing to malfunction on cheap Christmas timers.
3) Buy new timer at Lowes, and return defect in new package

My house is wired thru a 120v photocell for the exterior lights. It will not turn off and the lens is clean. There is no wall box behind it. There is just a small black photocell in the exterior stucco....


If you can't remove or replace that photocell, you can bypass it. Since the lights stay on, you could locate the circuit elsewhere and wire into that location another photocell or timer or both.

The lights do not go off ?? Is it a bad photocell? They are on all day..and night..


Photocells go bad.
If photocell was working before and stopped working, then photocell is bad.
If photocell never worked, then check wiring.
I buy cheap 120Volt photocells at home center, and when they go bad, buy same brand again, and return bad one in new package if bad one still looks new.

Intermatic has 120V and 240V photocells.

Aquaman987 - Tonight I hid the photocell between two transformers, definitely NO ambient light, no luck. Placed black electrical tape over the photocell, no luck. On again and off again in 2 to 32 minute...


1) If this is new installation: Check wiring.
Black to Hot from breaker.
White to Neutral from breaker box.
Red to Load (light)

Neutral wire is necessary to operate photoeye.

2) If installation worked at one time but doesn't work now, then photocell is bad.
Or if photocell is new, they arrive defective sometimes.
Proof is your black-tape test.
Buy new photocell from Home Center electric department, or lighting department and connect wiring as described above.

I want to wire a photocell to overide my T101 timer for cloudy overcast days. Please provide a wiring diagram. Thank you


You need to come off the line side of the clock to feed your photocell. And then from the load side of the photocell you can feed to the load side of the time clock. Leave the time clock wired the way it is now. What this will do is feed the light with the photocell or the time clock, but keep in mind by doing this the light will always remain on when it is dark. There is no other way to do it.

All Pro 200t Will not ignite


John- the ignitor does not stay on for the duration of the running time. It only stays on for the first 5 seconds. This is long enough for the flame to ignite and perpetuate itself, assuming the fuel delivery system is up-to-par. The photocell monitors the flame color and if the flame becomes off-color then the photocell tells the control board to shut the unit down. Naturally, too rich or too lean affects flame color.

Now, I'm confused by your description "the heater cycles 3 times". Tell me more.

I'm glad to see that you checked the pump pressure. Have you used soapy water to check for air leaks all the way to the nozzle? A leak in the airline, fuel line, or a crack in the nozzle adapter will cause no fuel delivery, or reduced fuel delivery as well as reduced atomization of the fuel - all of which can cause a lack of combustion. A restricted fuel filter will cause starvation.

Eliminate all possibilities of a fuel delivery problem before you start blaming electronics because there is not much way to test the board or the photocell successfully without DESA's diagnostic tool. Unfortunately, replacement of the componants is cheaper than the tool.
