I'm in need of an inexpensive timer, preferably - 9b115a6.jpg
Instruction sheet
Sales sheet

Deihl spa-and-pool timer shows a 15A DPST NC NO timer in sales sheet
Wiring diagrams show DPST.
However most 880's sold are 125V SPST.
Deihl makes 125 V, 24V and 240V models ... but I don't have product sheet that shows all models

I don't see any NO NC wall-timers while looking at: Woods, GE, Intermatic, Aube, Hagar, Leviton, Lutron, Paragon, Pass and Seymour, Swilight, Sylvania, Timex, Tork, UPM, Utilitec

Box timers by Intermatic offer NO NC:
T1900 series
T171

Ordinary 3-way switch is NC NO
Ordinary 4-way switch is NC NO can be wired to control 2 independent circuits

There are heavy load NO NC contactors (relays)
Item 2cg37
You can wire ordinary wall timer to control the contactor

Resetting a tripped kitchler low voltage transformer


Model number is not known.
I did not know that Kitchler transformers have a circuit breaker.
Usually they have an override switch.
Did you set the timer to override, what does your product manual say?
Is the transformer humming? Kitchler transformer are supposedly non-audible, but there should be some indicating sound. The humming sound indicates the transformer is working.
Does the unit have photoeye? Cover photoeye with black tape.
Test outlet with circuit analyzer.
Check outlet voltage: if you have 120Volt then output is 10% or 12Volts. If you have reduced voltage, then output is still 10% but might be lower than needed to operate bulbs.
Plug timer into different outlet.
Test output terminals with low voltage tester.
Did you have power outage or nearby lightning strike? Transformers are not protected from surge.
Suggest you contact kitchler.
Kitchler.com website is useless
888-412-4877
7711 E Pleasant Valley Rd
PO Box 318010
Cleveland, OH 44131
Kitchler products are probably warranted through the seller.
Kitchler product manuals are almost non-existent.
Scan your product operating manual and parts list into .pdf format and post on web for others to access.

How can i install the transformer for intermatic timer t10004rt3


Intermatic phone number: 815-675-7076

T104RT3 has 120Volt 300 watt transformer with 12-13-14Volt output.

The timer mechanism is 240Volt T104M.

Since both 120Volt and 240Volt are needed, the wire coming from breaker box should have 2 Hots and a neutral, plus the ground wire.
So you need 12-3 with/ground wire or 10-3 with/ground wire.
See image of typical wires plus ratings:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire.html
See example image showing 2 hots and neutral and ground coming from breaker box:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Basic-240-Volt-water-heater-circuit-2.jpg

The 2 hot wires come from a 240Volt circuit breaker.
The neutral comes from the neutral busbar, or can be accessed from tying into any white neutral on nearby 120Volt outlet.

How to wire timer:
Connect 240Volt hot wires to terminals 1 and 3 on timer. Connect 240Volt timed output to terminals 2 and 4 on timer.

How to wire transformer:
Connect 120Volt transformer two different ways. (a) white wire connects to neutral wire and black wire connects to terminal 1 on timer. With this wiring, the transformer is ON at all times. (b) white wire connects to neutral wire and black wire connects to terminal 2 on timer. With this wiring, the transformer will be ON when timer turns on.
Do not put both stranded wire and copper wire under same screw terminal. Instead connect transformer wire to solid copper wire using wire nut.

I have a TORK 920L timer for our church parking lights. The timer is supposed to be a 7 day timer according to the dial. Right now it is turning one revolution per 36 hours. How do I get it to turn in an...


1) It sounds like the clock motor is not operating correctly.

2) This timer is not supposed to be connected directly to the lighting circuit, and should control contactors instead.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#900
See what contactors look like
http://waterheatertimer.org/H230A.html

3) I cannot find replacement clock motor for that timer.

4) Tork 920L mechanical dawn-dusk timer seems to sell for $1200

Looking for a timer to turn a 120volt 2amp water pump on for 1min 2 times aday that will last for more than 3 years please help


1) You need 120V timer to control 2 amp water pump.
V x A = watts so 120V x 2amp = 240 watt
754 watts per HP divided by 240W = 1/3 HP horsepower.

2) To get 1 minute time periods, you need electronic timer.
Most electronic timers have minimum 1 minute set time.
Same schedule each day, you can use 356-day, 7-day or 24-hour electronic timer.

3) To have electronic timer last longer than 3 years you need a clean circuit and expensive timer.
Use circuit analyzer to check circuit. Hire electrician to check circuit and replace pump if necessary to make sure timer will last as long as possible.

4) Intermatic ET70115C should last for many years. Battery is replaced every 8 years.
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/electronic%20time%20switches/next%20generation%20time%20switches.aspx
ET70115C $379
http://www.1000bulbs.com/product/3391/ELEC-ET70115C.html

5) You posted under EH10 water heater timer, which is inexpensive water heater timer rated for 1HP. You can't expect inexpensive timer to last as long when using a motor, although 1/3 HP is lightweight motor.

6) You can buy five EH10's for same price as one ET70115C.

7) List of ordinary electronic timers, each with slightly different features
Intermatic EH10 $73

Intermatic ET1105C $96

My yard stake is a tower with 6 outlets and a single button to set, the brand is Holiday Living. I can't get it to come on at dusk and run for 4 hours without the lights blinking. I want a constant...


Put black tape over photo electric eye and see if lights stay on without blinking.

Dusk-type yard stake has photo electric eye, which is visible as round glass ball.
Lights from circuit can cause photo-eye to think it is daylight, so circuit turns OFF.
Moment later, photo-eye thinks it's dark and lights click back ON

Usually 6-outlet yard stakes have 4 top outlets controlled by timer.
Normally bottom 2 outlets are ON full time.
Make sure bottom outlets are not blinking also, which implies problem with outdoor circuit or basic timer problem.
Check circuit with inexpensive circuit analyzer from Home Depot electric department.

Photoelectric eyes go bad easily, but usually they don't blink.
They stick ON or OFF.

I need a plug-in timer that I can turn something ON for 5 minutes every hour. What can you suggest? Henry


You need a 60 minute cycle timer capable of running 12 cycles per hour.
Usually this type of timer is heavier duty for commercial applications like garden irrigation or misting, stock feeding, or cattle barn ventilation. Commercial applications require reliable long-term product with higher price.
Average mass market plug-in timer is lighter duty, and is used for turning on indoor lamp or outdoor christmas lights a few times per day. These timers are inexpensive 'corner store' items priced at 6-15$. There would be no mass market for for a plug-in cycle timer as specific as your requirement.

Intermatic makes a panel-mount digital cycle timer you could wire to short extension cord.

Tork ACT cycle timer is less precise, but could be wired to short extension cord:

I want to wire 2 driving lamps into my discovery


Instal a relay (preferably in a mounting socket); Wire one side of the control coil to the +12v mainbeam 'on' circuit.
Take the other relay coil control connection to the additional 'Driving-lamp on' control switch (switched to ground).
Supply relay contacts 'common' with a fused +12V from battery - use wire with sufficient current carry capacity to feed driving lights. Connect switched +12V output to the driving lamps.
