You probably need new 156T1978A tripper.
Trippers are made of softer metal and are designed to wear down and be replaced.

My parafon 4001-0 is coming on at the wrong time..i have one set of trippers and they are correctly, and now have turned off the breaker to shut the lgihts off. I don't know what to do


Is the dial rotating and keeping good time?
Are the X2772 trippers worn down?
Does the manual override lever turn load on-off.

You can buy replacement trippers online.
Otherwise if the clock dial is slow, then clock motor is bad, and you need to replace timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html

Replace the 4001-1 120Volt timer with Intermatic T101 timer.
Crossover wiring is as follows.
Paragon terminal 1 => Intermatic 1
Paragon 2 => Intermatic 2
Paragon 3 => Intermatic A
Intermatic timers are easily repairable and adaptable for various voltages and different countries by changing clock motors

My Intermatic T101 has power going to it and the clock works normally. But when the clock trips the switching lever to ON or I manually turn it to on, it does not put out power. Is there any sort of fuse...


There is no fuse inside the T101.
If timer clock motor is working correctly, then 120Volt circuit is fine up to the timer.
Unknown if this is new installation , or old installation that stopped working.
Wiring might be bad, such that line and load wires are reversed.
Or light bulb might be bad.

1 Answer

On my t101 timer the lights come on a said time by never turn off.the time on the clock is always wrong even when i reset the correct time.


Thank you for including model number of timer.

1) If T101 timer worked correctly before, and suddenly stopped working, then clock motor is suspect.
Order WG1570 clock motor and buy extra trippers also:
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi

2) If this is new installation, then wiring is suspect.
Line wires come from circuit breaker.
Load wires go to lights.

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

New intermatic T101 timer problem - timer is not


Manual override lever is good overall test of T101 120Volt timer.
T101 timer has 3 terminals: A 1 2

See wiring diagram on following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

Electricians test, they don't guess.
So test your wire:
Separate all wires for testing.
Use ordinary 2 prong tester.
Tape wood sticks to tester leads to keep hands away from power.
Stand on dry boards. Do not hold or touch anything metal.
Turn power ON.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Hot wire. 120V circuit has only 1 Hot wire. If you have 2 Hot wires, you might have 240Volt circuit and need T104 timer. If circuit has 1 Hot wire, then that Hot wire must connect to terminal 1.
If you have NO Hot wire, then check circuit breaker.
Hot wire is identified.
Now test Hot wire to all other wires, except bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Neutral wire. Neutral wire must connect to terminal A.
If you have NO Neutral wire, then additional wiring is needed, or circuit needs further testing to see what type of wiring you are working with.
Bare ground wires connect to green ground screw.

Notice there are small white wires also connected to terminals A and 1. These small white wires power the 120V clock motor. With Hot on terminal 1 and Neutral on terminal A, the clock motor will run, and yellow dial will rotate.

If timer dial does not rotate after connecting Hot ans Neutral, then test voltage across Hot and Neutral to make sure it reads 120V.

Your circuit should have 2 wires remaining.
These wires go to 120Volt load (fan, light, motor)
Connect these two wires to terminals A and 2.
Try manual override.
If Load turns ON-OFF, then timer is wired correctly.
If Load does NOT turn ON-OFF, then reverse Load wires on terminals A and 2.

Add a comment any time.

Intermatic T101 timer


T101 timer is strictly 120Volt timer
Wiring and manual show on following link
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

See another image of wiring:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T-101-control-120V-Load-450.jpg

Amazon sells T101:
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-T101-Hour-Dial-Timer/dp/B00002N5FN

If timer is not functioning, add a comment.

Grainger sells 125V clock motor and tripper for T100 series timers.
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi
If manual override does not turn Load ON, and the lever snaps crisp and clean, then check electric circuit. Check if load is operable.
If override does not snap crisp and clean, then timer may be worn out.
If dial does not rotate, replace clock motor.
If dial rotates but does not click override back and forth, then replace trippers.

How T101 works:
Lift and rotate dial until current time lines up with silver pointer
Clock motor rotates dial.
ON-OFF trippers attached outer edge of dial contact a lever.
ON tripper pushes lever one direction.
Off tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
Lever opens and closes electrical contacts.
Lever also pushes manual override lever back and forth with audible click.

Hey there, I have a Tork 1101 time switch. I actually have 2 right next to each other for different controls. I wired both of them and I know they're wired correctly. One works fine and i have no...


It sounds like the clock motor has gone bad, which is why the trippers cause the wheel to stall.
Frontier lighting sells the clock motor for 43$:
http://www.frontierlighting.com/product.jsp?part=10431&process=search&show=&ID=,Photo.Cells...Time.Controls,Replacement.Motors

Why one of the timers works fine and the other habitually fails is a mystery. You might use a circuit analyzer or test the load. Try switching loads to other timer.

Since the Tork 1101 clock motor sells for $43, I suggest T-101 as crossover product in Intermatic.

Don't know what is it used for,and how it operates?I don't have any instructions for it.


You posted under T101 timer.
Most box timers have model number and instructions pasted on inside of door.
Instructions can seems a foreign language sometimes.

If your timer is different than T101, then add a comment with timer number.
I have extensive files on timers.

Box timers are generally used for heavy amperage loads like outdoor lights, swimming pool pumps, water heaters, parking lot lights and lighted outdoor signs.
They are surface mounted near breaker box, or in attic or basement, or garage.
Box timers are used in schools to ring bells, and inside factories to run processes and fans.
Some are complicated electronic devices used to control machines with one second precision.
Mechanical box timers are noisy when turning on-off, so are generally not installed in living area of house.

T101 timer is least complicated of any timer.
It is used for ordinary household 120V circuit.
Timer has 120Volt clock motor, and controls 120Volt circuit.
For example 120Volt water heater, or 120V grow lights, or aquarium, or any application up to 2 horsepower, for example timer can be located inside garage to control outdoor lights.
T101R is raintight outdoor box, with rubber gasket on door that seals tight when closed.
Raintight boxes are installed outdoors to operate 120Volt spas and pool pumps.
When box timer is rated for indoor, there is no rubber gasket on door, and that box is called NEMA 1 enclosure.
My local Lowes sells T101 T103 T104 > and each is for slightly different purpose and each wires differently.
Link below shows wiring and manuals for T100 series timers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

Here's how T100 series timer works:
Lift and rotate yellow dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.
Clock motor rotates dial as time passes.
Clock motors are accurate for years, but current time has to be reset after power outage.
ON-OFF trippers are placed on outer edge of dial.
Trippers push a lever, and lever turns circuit on-and-off.
ON tripper pushes lever one direction.
OFF tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
Each time lever is pushed, manual-override lever clicks back and forth with audible sound.
