Apparently, the spring under the timer dial on my 4001 timer has been broken and the timer will no longer trip the trippers. Can this be fixed? It is a nearly-new unit and I like it.


Open following link for Paragon resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#4000

Individual parts are not sold except for X2772 tripper.
Move the manual override lever back and forth and see if load turns on-off.
Watch if on-and-off trippers are moving override lever back and forth, to see if problem is a worn tripper instead of broken spring.

Replacement 4001-00 timers are sold, even though Paragon is no longer making timers except defrost timers.

Replacement timer is Intermatic T101

My timer manual switch works,it turns the outside lights on and off. However the automatic dial,even when plled out and set to time to operate does not work.What 's going on? Isit me?


The two tabs are for On ad OFF.
One is slightly longer than the other. If the OFF tab is in the ON location, it won't work, it'll just click past the time and not flip the paddle to ON.

Try this, turn the dial (NOT pulled out) around slowly and see if it flips the paddle to ON. Keep turning it, slowly, and see if it flips to OFF.
If it works while you're "helping it" then it should work automatically. If it doesn't, maybe the gear is damaged and it can't move past a certain point.

Does the time move? Do you hear the motor running? I've seen the motors go bad. The manual flipping will work then, but the motor isn't running the clock around.

My t1004r timer does not run any more. The manual switch still works. The problem may be due to rain getting inside. Does the whole unit needs to be changed out?


If manual override works, then timer is basically sound.

1) If dial does not rotate, then replace clock motor: T104 timer uses 240Volt clock motor. T101 and T103 use 125Volt clock motor

2) If dial rotates, but trippers are missing or trippers are worn down and no longer click on-off lever, then buy new trippers.
T100 series trippers and clocks are shown following link:
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi

3) If you have different timer than T101-103-104, then add a comment.

4) Clock motors are located on back of mechanism.
Mechanism snaps out with thumb spring located top inside box.
Clocks have identifying numbers: google search for that clock number if different that shown above.

5) If you buy new timer, then specify T104R.
R suffix is for raintight box.

How do I reset the time needle on my intermatic modle t101 The screw was loose and the needle move so


T101 Intermatic is 120Volt electro-mechanical timer

Silver pointer is located at 6:00 position.
Tighten the center screw with star screwdriver
Lift and rotate yellow dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.

How electro-mechanical timers work:
Place ON-OFF trippers on dial.
Trippers rotate around with passing time.
Trippers encounter on-off lever.
OFF tripper clicks lever one direction.
ON tripper clicks lever other direction.
Manual override lever clicks back and forth each time on-off lever is clicked.

I have a T101 Mechanical timer that isn't working properly. The clock seems to be working fine, and if you turn it to manual, the lights come on. However, the lights do not turn on automatically. Any...


First be sure dial is actually turning. Are the trippers tight on the dial? Sometimes when the gears and motors are going bad, the dial will turn until it gets to the tripper, then stops. It doesn't have enough forct to trip the switch. You can buy just a motor if that's the problem. www.intermatic.com

T101 clock runs but doesn't turn on some days, other days it does


Check the 'tripper' on the dial and give the contact a good look. These have been known to break and also move out of the tripper path. If it's not that then you could have an intermittent connection going on you. Give all connections a good check.
