If the clock dial does not rotate >> and the manual override works >> the the clock motor is bad.

The clock motor is replaceable. Snap out the insides, and the clock is attached with 2 small screws >>> sometimes these take a start screwdriver from the auto parts store.

On the inside cover of your timer is a sheet showing the clock voltage. Some clocks are 240 Volts, some are 120 Volts.

The back of the clock also has identifying numbers.

You say the timer is outdoor. A pool timer is probably 240Volt timer, with a 240Volt clock.
If the timer controls the sprinkler or lights, then the clock motor is probably 120V, with 120V clock motor

Grainger sells 120 and 240 clocks for the T100 series timer

A+ sells a long list of Intermatic clock motors

If your timer is an Intermatic, you can also buy the whole timer, and then swap the insides without changing the box.

Hi - My Intermatic T101P3 timer motor stops after it turns off the pool pump. I have one start and one stop time in a 24 hr period. I have to manually start the pump at the timer in the morning,...


Sounds like the clock leads are on the wrong posts, or at least the hot one is. If if was moved to the load side then manually starting the timer will also power up the clock motor. As soon as the clock trips the off timer, the pump and the clock motor are both off. Examine the clock leads to the wiring diagram inside the clock box cover to ensure they are connected correctly. I bet you'll find one of the wires is misplaced.

If you only have a Black wire, White wire and a ground wire, you are only wired for 120 volts. For 240 volts you have to have two Black wires or a Black and a Red as well as a White (neutral) and a ground.

I have a 4003 osz time clock and it does not turn lights on and off. Where can I get new insides for the same box.


As of November 2010 or before, Paragon is no longer making timers or parts except Defrost timers.
4003 0SZ is not a defrost timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html

0SZ suffix appears to be 120Volt astronomic time clock that turns ON at Dusk and OFF at Dawn
4003 is DPST 120Volt 40 amp mechanical timer

MR Supply sells 7200

Intermatic mechanical astronomic clocks:
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/mechanical%20time%20switches/astronomic.aspx
These time clocks are Indoor-outdoor and can control 3 different 120V Loads, for example store light in front, outdoor light in back, and outdoor sign. All Loads turn on-off at same time.
Beverly Hills shows the V4547r

Intermatic also makes electronic astronomic time pieces where voltage is selectable, with many timing options (programming is detailed and complicated):
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/electronic%20time%20switches/astronomic%20electronic.aspx
NEMA1 is indoor box
NEMA 3R is indoor-outdoor box.
SPST means timer can control 1 Load
SPDT can control 2 120V Loads
1000 Bubs sells the ET8115C

My HB31R runs slow. Is there any adjustment ability to the timer mechanism to achieve a correct 24 hour timer.


http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/consumer%20outdoor%20timers/electromechanical%20timers/hb31r.aspx

HB31R heavy duty 1800 Watt outdoor plug-in timer is one-piece unit that does not come apart for repairs.

Usually with these mechanical dial timers, when the clock motor starts getting weak, the timer dial starts to stall when tripper meets on-off lever.
And then timers runs slow.
At this point, the little plastic gears are getting stripped out, or the clock motor is overheating.
In either case, the clock motor is spiraling downward.

If this is new timer, take it back.
If this is older timer, the manual and fact sheet do not show a warranty.
New HB31R on ebay for $15

Woods makes 1200 Watt outdoor timer, but lighter weight than Intermatic:
http://www.amazon.com/Woods-59204-Weather-Outdoor-Repeats/dp/B0014WRNNK

With larger heavy duty outdoor timers like the Intermatic T-101R outdoor 120Volt timer, you can buy the clock motor separate and replace when clock goes bad. And you can buy the trippers separate. However T100 series timers are not plug-in, they are hard-wired. T-101 is made to last 10-15 years, but cost $60-70. My local Lowes sells them in stock for less.

Need manual to set timer


You posted under T-100 series outdoor timer
If you have different timer, add a comment with timer model number located inside cover.

T-104, T-103, T-101 timer manuals show on following page:
If your timer has R suffix, like T-101R, that means box is Raintight for outdoor use.
T-101R and T-101 mechanisms are identical except for box. T-101 box is indoor use.
Click model number and drop-down menu reveals link to manual
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/mechanical%20time%20switches/24%20hour%20dial.aspx

If you need simple wiring diagrams, and explanation for each T-104, T-103, T-101 timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

Here's how to set Intermatic T100 series timers:
Lift and rotate yellow dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.
Silver pointer is stationary at 6 o'clock position.
Put ON-OFF trippers on dial at times you want ON OFF functions.
Minimum on-off is 1 hour because of tripper width.
If timer is not working, add a comment and we'll troubleshoot.

These timers have replacement trippers and clock motors at Grainger
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi

How timer works:
Clock motor, located on back of mechanism, rotates yellow dial.
Trippers on dial push lever that turns power ON and OFF.
Off tripper pushes lever one direction.
ON tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
When lever is pushed, manual override lever clicks back and forth with audible click sound.

The timer clicked OFF but poot pump kept running. Had to trip breaker to stop pool pump.


Your Intermatic timer has a manual override.
The override is a good diagnostic.
Click the manual override and see if pump turns on and off.

Next, watch if the clock is rotating.
If the clock is rotating, the OFF tripper may be worn out and you need a new tripper

geno_3245_4.jpg

If the clock wheel is not rotating, you need a new clock motor.
If you have T104, your clock motor is 240Volts
If you have T101 or T103, your clock motor is 125Volts
Buy trippers and clock motors at Grainger
Clock motor replacement takes a small star-screwdriver bit
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi

If your manual override is not working, then the gears might be rusty and need to be cleaned or your timer needs to be replaced.
You can buy same model number timer and then swap the insides without changing boxes.

Add a comment if you need more help.

Timer stopped working Manual mode turns things


Usually the timer motor is bad when that happens. You can purchase a new timer motor here (or at a similar website):
http://www.aplussupply.com/intermatic/timer.htm
If you don't want to mess with replacing the timer motor can can buy another time clock and as long as your existing enclosure is still in good shape, just swap out the guts.

On the model that I have you set the time by pulling the dial out and turning it to the current time.  If it does not "seat" fully when you release the dial it will not engage teh timer gear.  Make sure it is seated by trying to move it slightly in both directions.  If it turns frely it is not seated.  If there is some resistance (don't force it) then it is seated and should keep correct time.  If you have moved the manual lever to the ON position and the lights still do not work you need to make sure the power to the time clock is live.  The timer motor (and the lights) will not work if the power supply is off.  If the power is on and the lights still aren't working on Manual then there is a problem beyond the time clock (broken wire, burned out bulbs, etc.).
