Question about Paragon 4001-0G Defrost Timer

1 Answer

We have an AMF Paragon 4001 timer for the light outside our building. The light goes on lately at the wrong time. We want it to be on at 7:00pm and off and 5:00am but it goes on at 12:00 at noon.

Paragon no longer makes timers, except for commercial defrost series.
There is a cheap knock-off that looks like the old 4001, but I cannot find seller any longer and do not recommend.

Instead, order 120Volt Intermatic T101 timer to replace Paragon 4001.
Or order T101R for indoor-outdoor weather-tight enclosure

Paragon 4001 terminals are 1-2-3

Intermatic T101 terminals A-1-2
Paragon terminal 1 Hot goes to Intermatic terminal 1
Paragon terminal 2 Load goes to Intermatic terminal 2
Paragon terminal 3 Neutral goes to Intermatic terminal A

Intermatic makes replacement clock motors and trippers for T100 series, so this timer will last decades.

Tork also makes a line of mecanical timers sold through home depot under GE brand name:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15145
These are also good timers, but lighter construction than Intermatic T101.

Not keeping correct time


You posted under Paragon 4001-00 120Volt SPST timer

1) If timer is not keeping correct time, generally you need to buy new clock motor.
However Paragon is no longer making timers and parts, except for defrost timers.
4001-00 is not defrost timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#Paragon4000

2) You probably need to replace timer
Intermatic cross reference shows T101 timer is correct replacement.
http://www.intermatic.com/customer%20service/competitive%20cross%20reference.aspx

3) Amazon sells T101 for $43.
This price is a lot lower than trying to find somebody who has specific Paragon clock motor
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-T101-Hour-Dial-Timer/dp/B00002N5FN

4) Grainger and many other places sell T100 series replacement trippers and motors.
No worry about defunct product

5) Wiring for T101 appears below:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

Cross-over wiring is as follows:
Paragon terminal 1 goes to T101 terminal 1
Paragon terminal 2 goes to T101 terminal 2
Paragon terminal 3 goes to T101 terminal A

I'm trying to set the times on a paragon amf 7 day timer


There should be 2 trippers for each day, the trippers slide on the outside of the dial and would point to the time of day you want your lights on and off. The silver trippers may be gone on that aged time clock, but are easily obtainable.
