Question about Intermatic Hardware & Accessories

I disconnected my model ML300TW which was attached to my barn in order to replace the barn. I reinstalled the transformer on the new barn and hooked up the wires. The clock works and the transformer is hot but my lights will not light up. I have checked the reset button. I don't know where else to look. Where is my problem and how do I get power to my lights?

    What about the W-shaped clip that fell off. Where does it go? I will try your suggestions tomorrow when it is light.

    Where is the contactor wire? All I have is 4 terminals. What kind of wire connection am I missing? Please explain in layman terms to someone who is not an electrical engineer.

    I don't understand what the expert is telling me. I am not an electrical engineer. I am a home owner.

Check the contactor for power to the coil. You may have not gotten that contactor wire connected to the input power lead when you re-connected your Timer. Also check for 12VDV on both sides of the contactor. You may have 12VDC in but nothing out which means the contactor is not energizing.
Power for the contactors' coil is supplied either with manual selected or Auto and the timer set times are active.
Yu need to find out why the contactor is not being powered. In your case I just think it is a missing wire connection due to the fact that it was fine before you moved it.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

    Hi again and my apology for not communicating well. One of the contactor wires connects to the A terminal of the transformer. My concern is the W clip that you said you did not know where is goes sounds like the center piece that the contactor spring is attached to. Without that clip the contactor can attempt to work but due to the real possibly of the now missing clip and spring the contacts of the contactor may never close.

    Again I apologize. The only way for me to find out at this point would be to remove the case. I will say that if the spring came off of the contactor you should still hear a rattle inside the unit as you moved it around from the spring being loose inside the case.

    Maybe another FixYa Expert has a better idea. No worries here if you go expert shopping. I just would like to see your transformer back on the job. I have been an electrician since the late 60's. I wish I could do more for you but without that physical look inside of your transformer I am not much help.

I don't know what you did, but I'll guess, you disconnected a timer for the lights? It is a 220 volt timer? You disconnected both line and load? So now you hook it back up with the same power supply, which is hot, the clock works and the transformer works, the transformer is just for the clock. You have 2 hot wires coming in or just 110 volts? One hot wire, on the line side, white to neutral, and you have one wire on the load side, that goes to the lights, white to neutral again. Make sure the pins have not been moved or the timer set to manual or something. I can't see why it won't work if it is wired this way. Let me know. Hope this helps.

Hello, in order to turn your humidifier on with the furnace the 120 volts coming from your humidifer you must hook it up to a step down transformer, then the transformer will provide 24 volts to you humidistat and solenoid valve. So you need a wire from the HUM on your control board to transformer primary side and a wire from neutral on the board to primary side of transformer. Then you need low voltage wire from secondary side of transformer to humidistat from humidistat to humidifier.

The PTD1640U output is 16 volts AC (alternating current) so there is no polarity to the wires. You can hook either wire to either terminal on the wall transformer.

Fan is not running can we fix this ourselves


Hello.

You can test the fan motor. Unplug the refrig. and hook up a temporary power cord directly to the disconnected motor wires. If it is OK, clean the coils of lint build-up, disconnect the wires attached to the relay plugged onto the side of the compressor. Pop the relay apart and see if it is fried inside. If so, buy a new relay or kit, about $50 and reinstall it.

Note that
That fan keeps the compressor cool. Without it the compressor shuts down early. You should be able to easily change out that fan by getting one at an appliance parts dealer. On line you could go to www.repairclinic.com to order one.

Good luck

One year outdoor lighting (300V #135708) Transformer not working


You need to disconnect the lighting load completely from the transformer and check it's output. If it is dead unloaded, replace the transformer. If it seems to work now, then some part of the lighting circuit has probably shorted out. If there are several circuits coming to the transformer, attach each one separately and recheck for power. When one is attached that kills the output, investigate that circuit. Check for any broken lamps first, then the wiring must be opened at each lamp location to check for a local short circuit. A somewhat tedious fix. Hope this helps!

Water leaking out of fountain


You have a bad water valve. Order a new valve using your model number, pull the refrigerator out, turn off the water and find the valve by following the house water line to where it attaches on the refrigerator. This is your valve. You usually have to remove the backing plate to get to the valve. Remove the valve mounting screws, disconnect the waterlines and reattach to the new valve one at a time. Same with the two sets of wires, one at a time. Reinstall and test. Fairly straightforward. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Trying to replace honeywell T8001C thermostat with new honeywell RTH7600. The old had a brown not used & a blue. On the new unit not sure where they go. Hooked it up with red,yellow,white,green &...


Red is usually hot side of transformer,yellow is for the a/c compressor,white is for heater,green is for the blower fan,now the blue could be energize for heat or the common side for the transformer,brown can also be the common side of the transformer. It sounds like you need the blue wire connected to the common side for the thermostat....but be careful. Some units use this as a energize wire and are not a common. I would find out what furnace model you have then look online and double check what this wire is or you could damage the new thermostat and/or the 24 volt system on your fau. And also always have the power to the unit disconnected so you do not ground a circuit.

Honeywell thermostat


If you have a forced air furnace with an air conditioner attached make sure you have a jumper wire between Rh and Rc. If the Bryant thermostat had a wire hooked up to C you do not want to hook this up to Rc. Just cap it off and put it back in the wall or disconnect that wire down in the furnace.
