Some how this ended up in the riding mower section. You didn't indicate what brand of timer.
If it is a tork then here is a typical diagram: The incoming hot ( BLACK) would connect to the L the out going black would connect to X. The white neutral coming in and out would connect to the terminal without number. Intermatic timers are similar, not same terminal numbers. You can download a intermatic manual at www.intermatic.com

We have an indoor light switch timer and it is going on and off all the time. How do I reset it so that there is no program on it? or just reset the program?


Timer is not identified. You posted under Sylvania timer:
Open following link for instruction manual for re-programming timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Sylvania-timers-and-manuals.html

Problem is not clear.
Do you want to permanently override timer?
Most in-wall timers have override button, but the timing programming resumes at next set point.
When you re-program timer, it lets you set on and off times, but does not let you convert the timer to an ordinary on-off switch.

There is 1 type of timer that has timing function, PLUS optional ordinary on-off capability: Intermatic KM series, Tork 701, Woods 59017, GE15070
http://waterheatertimer.org/Programmable.html#15070

To replace the timer with ordinary on-off switch:
Buy on-off switch at hardware store. Switch will have 2 brass-colored screws and 1 green-colored screw.
Turn off power.
Remove timer wires, but note 1) which wire connected to timer red-or-blue wire and 2) which wire connected to timer black wire.
These two wires will connect to different brass colored screw on new switch.

C8835 Intermatic Timer, 30 Minute Cycle, used for and EFM coal stoker to keep it burning in summer. We are not sure how to hook up the timer, we did put the green wire on the green nut, not sure which...


Intermatic C8835 is 120Volt 30-minute cycle timer, which repeats same timing cycle every 30 minutes.
Timer has NO and NC terminals.
You will not use the NC normally closed terminal for this application, so no wire will connect to far left NC screw.

Jodie,
Green wire on green screw is correct, so you have started off well.
Bare copper wire also connects to green screw, so no more talk is needed about ground wires.

If you are using 240V or 277V, then add a comment and we'll lay out a plan for that wiring.
Wiring below is for 120V only.

You have 2 120Volt cables.
1) One cable comes from circuit breaker and has 1 black and 1 white wire.
The black 'line' wire connects to 'switch common' terminal, which is 3rd screw from left.
The white 'neutral' wire connects to 'clock' terminal, which is 4th screw from left.

2) The second cable goes to coal stoker, and has 1 black and 1 white wire.
The black wire connects to Normally Open or NO terminal which is 2nd screw from left.
The white wire connects to Clock terminal, which is 4th screw from left.

Notice that both white wires connect to same screw.

Hi! Please help me. I am having trouble connecting the wires from my dead 220v T104 pool pump timer to a new 220v T104 timer. The old timer had posts marked G 1 2 3 4. The new one has posts marked L 1 X...


Open following link for T104 wiring diagram:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

Your new timer is L 1 X 2, so that is not Intermatic T104.
You might have GE/Tork 15061 that fits into Intermatic box.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#GE-replacement
First thing to check is if new timer is 240Volts to match old T104.

If new timer is 240V, then here is crossover:
"Old 1" goes to new L >> and notice that L and 1 are connected by brass bridge. If bridge is missing, add a jumper wire between L and 1 on new timer

"Old 2" goes to new 2

"Old 3" goes to new X
"Old 4" goes to new X

T104 Intermatic timer is SPDT single pull double throw, so it turns off both wires going to Load.
New L1X2 timer is SPST single pull single throw, so it turns off one wire going to Load, and that's why old 3 and old 4 both connect to terminal X.

If this is too complex, then add a comment or buy new trippers and a new WG1573 clock motor and repair T104 for $20.

I am replacting my T103 timer with a GE 15600. The posts on the T103 are marked 1 2 3 4. However on the 15600 they are marked L 1 X 2. How do these map to each other?


1) If you are replacing T103, the T103 can be wired many different ways. Not all wiring diagrams are supported by GE 15600 replacement timer that fits into Intermatic box.

2) Double check your T103 terminals
T103 terminals should be A 1 2 3 4
If terminals 3 and 4 have wires, then GE is not correct replacement.
You can buy repair parts for Intermatic timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T103

3) GE has terminals 1 and L which are connected by brass bridge. If brass bridge is removed, add a jumper wire and connect terminals 1 and L
GE has terminals 1-L X 2

4) Typical GE 15600 wiring shows on following link, in addition to links for parts and manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15306

White wires on terminal A connect to terminal X
Black wire on terminal 1 connects to terminal 1
Black wire on terminal 2 connects to terminal 2

I dont understand the digram im tring to hook a plug outlet to plug the the timmerin to the wall and out from the timmer i would like to put a outlet to be albe to plug in my lights


You posted under T102 timer.
This timer is 240Volts, and you can't hook this to ordinary outlet.

Look at inside of timer door to see brand and model number, and then add a comment.
Once I know model number of your timer, I can help you with wiring.

If you have T101 timer:
1) Your power outlet has two prong openings: 1 is wide and 1 is narrow.
2) Black Hot wire from narrow prong connects to Terminal 1
3) White Neutral wire from wide prong connects to Terminal A

4) Black wire going to new outlet connects to Terminal 2, and also connects to brass screw on new outlet.
5) White wire going to new outlet connects to Terminal A, along with other white wire, and also connects to silver screw on new outlet.
6) Bare ground wire connects to green screws.

7) This is code wiring. Black is for Hot and White is for Neutral.
Hot wires connect to brass screw on outlet. White to silver screw on outlet.
Narrow prong on outlet is Hot; Wide prong on outlet is Neutral.

I would like to wire the 60 minute timer to a plugin for my iron how do i go about it the timer has only two wire coming out Thank you mike


If I understand correctly, you have an outlet for your iron.
You have 60 minute timer with two black wires.
You want to connect 60 minute countdown timer to prevent iron from being left ON.
Good idea, and perfect application for this timer.

Your outlet has two insulated wires, one black wire that is connected to brass screw and one white wire that is connected to silver screw.
If you have 2 blacks and 2 whites, that is also covered below.

Here's is how to wire timer to outlet.
1) One black and one white:
Remove black wire from brass screw.
Connect this wire to either wire on timer.
Connect other timer wire to brass screw on outlet.

2) Two black wire and two white wires.
The easiest way to proceed is try one black outlet wire and if it doesn't work then try the other black outlet wire:
Remove one of the black outlet wires from brass screw.
Connect this wire to either wire on timer.
Connect other timer wire to brass screw on outlet.
If timer works to control outlet, then wiring is correct.
If timer does not control outlet, then try the other black outlet wire.

I have the unit wired and it does not wotk.I have black to black,red to red green to ground and white to white,any thoughts? Thank you


Electrician test wiring before connecting anything.
First of all, you don't mention what type of switch was replaced.

1) Leviton 6230 countdown timer is made to replace single-pole light switch only.
Single pole is where 1 switch controls the Load (light fan motor)

Your wiring sounds like 3-way switch.
3-way is where 2 switches control same Load.
For example a hallway usually has 3-way switches.

To confirm. If old switch has 1 dark screw, 2 brass screws, and 1 green screw, then that is 3-way switch. Use Leviton LTB15, LTB30, LTB60, LTB02, LTB12 countdown timer for 3-way.

http://www.smarthome.com/4255/Leviton-LTB60-1LZ-4-Button-10-20-30-60-Minute-Countdown-Timer-Switch/p.aspx


2) If old switch has 2 brass screws and 1 green screw then that is single-pole switch.

3) If you are replacing single-pole switch, here are testing & wiring instructions for Leviton timer.
Remove device and separate wires for testing.
Use ordinary two wire tester.
Tape tester leads to wood sticks so hands are away from power.
Do not untwist wires that were twisted together before you started.
Turn on power.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Hot wire. This wire will connect to timer black wire.
Now you know Hot wire.
Test Hot wire to each of the other wires, excluding bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on neutral. Timer white wire connects to Neutral wire.
If box does not contain Neutral wire, then timer white wire connects to bare ground.

Timer green wire connects to bare ground wire.
Timer red wire connects to wire going to Load.

I have a single pole lighted switch with no wiring diagram. it has two screws on one side and three push connection holes, two marked common the other not marked. how do i install it properly?


I hesitate to answer question because the color of the screws is not identified. The holes are not identified which color screw they are next to. You can fill in these blanks when answering if the following information is not complete.

First of all, the green screw goes to bare ground wire and isn't discussed further

Usually a single pole switch has 2 brass-colored screws.
This tells you the wires from old single pole switch can connect to either screw.
Normally the quick-connect holes are located next to a screw >> that screw and the hole are connected. Sometimes there are two holes next to a screw >> and the same rule applies that holes are connected to screws they are next to.

If your switch has two screws and the colors are brass and silver, then that tells you something else.
It says that black-hot-wire-from-breaker connects to brass screw.
And wire-going-to-load (fan, light, motor) connects to silver screw.
If you do not know which wire is which, connect wires, if device doesn't work, then reverse the wires.
Again the quick-connect holes are located next to screw they are connected to.

If your switch has threes screws, then that switch has 2 brass screws and 1 dark screw.
You can wire this device as a single pole by connecting wires to dark screw and either brass screw

I am replacting my T104 timer with a GE 15601. The posts on the T104 are marked 1 2 3 4. However on the 15601 they are marked L 1 X 2. How do these map to each other?


GE 15601 is a replacement module for Intermatic timers.
Intermatic timers can snap inside the old box without needing to replace the box, and GE has made a product that taps into that market.

But the GE manual is missing key facts like clock voltage and wiring.

The following information is correct ONLY if the GE timer is rated for 240Volts Why? The T-104 is a 240V timer. I have 10 different Intermatic timers on my office shelves right now, and wrote the T-104 page linked to above.

Below is picture of the back of GE timer taken from GE manual.


8d3440e.jpg

Please look at the image as a reverse image of your wiring poles.
T104 has poles A 1 2 3 4
Black wire on Intermatic Pole 1 is the Hot from Breaker
Black wire on Intermatic Pole 2 is the Black to Load
White wires on Intermatic Poles 3 and 4 are the White from breaker and White to Load. So on the GE timer, 2 white wires are on same pole.

On the GE timer, there is a brass connector between 2 of the Poles that connects those poles electrically, so no wire goes on one of the GE Poles

That's the wiring changeover.
Up-vote if the information helped you.

I have a 110 Pool Pump and I am trying to wire it into a Tork1103NC timer. From the pool pump I have a black, white and green wire that I need to wire into the timer. Can you tell me what position those...


0fde0d6.jpg

Here is Tork 1103 wired for single load.

1) The green pump wire and bare copper wire go to green ground screw
2) Pump black wire goes to pole 2, the NO (normally open) pole
3) Pump white wire goes to unmarked screw

4) Black from circuit breaker goes to pole L
The T1103 comes with a removable brass bar that connects pole L and pole 1
If that removable brass bar is not there, then add a jumper between pole L and pole 1 as shown in diagram above
5) White neutral from breaker box goes to unmarked pole (all whites connect to unmarked pole)

In your case, pole X is not used. Pole X is NC or normally closed > which means the power is ON continuously until timer turns on, and when timer turns ON, the NC pole turns OFF
