There are two different trip switches that you manually place on the timer. One is an on trip and one is an off trip. You probably are using only the on trip. Check with your supplier to find the off switch.

I hope this has helped you

Intermatic T104 timer wont turn pump on,despite being tripped


If override lever snaps back and forth crisp, and turns pump ON-OFF, then timer switch is good.
Try installing new trippers. The trippers wear down and start to slip over the trip lever.
If pump does not turn on-off with override, look for loose wires at breaker or pump.

Lights come on for two seconds then turn off


Check that wire is attached firmly to A and B terminals.
Check that outlet does not have loose wire.
Tripper might be worn down so it does not fully push the on-off lever.
Push tripper all the way down so it will contact the on-off lever.
Check that lights work with override switch.
If lights turn on-off with override, then set timer to ON, buy cheap plug-in timer, and plug power pack into cheap timer.

Generally, there is not good news if power pack stopped working.
Trippers can be replaced, but there are no repair parts for power packs.

I have an intermatic t104p3. The tripper goes right over the manual on and off, replaced the tripper and still goes over it.


Repeating the obvious: If new tripper goes over on-off lever, then the timer will not work.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-Intermatic-timer.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#T100

Check that you have correct ON or OFF tripper > they are different and have marking embossed into the metal.
Check that you have correct replacement tripper, and that tripper is new.

Intermatic trippers are made of softer metal than on-off lever.
This design means tripper wears out, but the timer mechanism is still good.

It seems odd that on-off lever was worn down by trippers, but there can be manufacturing problems. It's been known that manufacturing subcontractor substitutes second-best metal to shave costs.

Here is a close-up photo showing off tripper getting ready to push on-off lever.
Note there is a bit of white grease on the on-off lever.
You can add a comment and include in-focus photo of your timer posted on Flickr

Can't figure out how to set the times to turn power off/on.The metal trippers seem to be permanently in there.


Remove dial from body of timer.
So now the timer is apart in 2 pieces.
Silver ON trippers and brass OFF trippers can be removed.

Place trippers in times you want timer to operate.
OFF trippers have to be at least 2 hours apart.
ON trippers have to be at least 2 hours apart
Minimum on-off function is one hour

Snap timer back together.

Tripper rotates around with dial.
When tripper contacts on-off lever, it physically moves lever like turning on light switch.
ON tripper moves lever one direction.
OFF tripper moves lever opposite direction.

Yes, the T101M 120Volt pool timer requires both ON and OFF trippers:

Timer will not turn water heater ON at set time, has to be done manually. However, it will turn water heater OFF at set time.


If this is new installation, check wiring. Hot and Load wires might be reversed.
Check that ON OFF trippers are both attached to yellow dial.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-WH40.html

If timer worked fine before, and started missing recently, then tripper pins probably worn out.
Trippers contact mechanical lever, and push lever on-and-off.
Trippers are softer metal and designed to wear out before lever.
If lever is worn out, timer needs to be replaced, but try new trippers first.

How WH40 timer works:
Clock motor rotates dial.
ON-OFF trippers on dial contact lever.
ON tripper pushes lever one direction.
OFF tripper pushes lever other direction.
Lever moves electrical contacts together, or pulls contacts apart.
When lever moves on-and-off, manual override lever also snaps back and forth with audible clicking sound.

Using q-tip, add touch of white grease to lever where trippers contact.

Power is good going into the timer but the timer is not running. I am wondering if there is a fuse that needs to be changed or a reset switch? The timer has been replaced in the last year.


If I understand correctly, you have T-104 240V timer.
Timer was running fine before, and recently stopped working.
If this is not your timer, add a comment.

1) Click manual override back and forth to see if Load turns on-off.
If Load does not turn on-off, then check power at Load.
Timer has 5 terminals A 1 2 3 4
Check terminals 2 and 4 for 240Volts when Load is ON

2) Check terminals 1 and 3 for 240Volts to make sure timer has full 240V and breaker is not tripped OFF on one leg. If timer has 120V, it appears to have voltage, but clock will not rotate and Load will not turn on-off. Check breaker for 240V across both screws.

3) Is dial rotating?
If dial is not rotating or is stuck in place, replace 208-277V clock motor.
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Time-Clock-Motor-1PNK2?Pid=search

4) If dial is rotating, but trippers don't flip on-off lever, then trippers may be worn down. Buy new trippers.

5) How to wire T104 timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

How timer works
:
Clock motor rotates dial.
ON-OFF trippers on dial contact lever.
ON tripper pushes lever one direction.
OFF tripper pushes lever other direction.
Lever moves electrical contacts together, or pulls contacts apart.
When lever moves on-off, manual override lever also snaps back and forth with audible clicking sound.

How do I reset the time needle on my intermatic modle t101 The screw was loose and the needle move so


T101 Intermatic is 120Volt electro-mechanical timer

Silver pointer is located at 6:00 position.
Tighten the center screw with star screwdriver
Lift and rotate yellow dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.

geno_3245_71.jpg

How electro-mechanical timers work:
Place ON-OFF trippers on dial.
Trippers rotate around with passing time.
Trippers encounter on-off lever.
OFF tripper clicks lever one direction.
ON tripper clicks lever other direction.
Manual override lever clicks back and forth each time on-off lever is clicked.

The off tripper pin is not turning off my timer. Why?


Does the manual override work?
If manual override does not work, then the timer is probably worn out.
Buy new T-104 (not T-101 or T-103 because these have 120V motor)
No need to replace box >>> new T-104 mechanism snaps out and fits old box

If override works then the tripper pin could be worn out.

How it works is this: The tripper pin come into contact with a metal lever, and the clock motor pushes the wheel until the tripper clicks the metal lever. The manual override is connected to same metal lever.
Tripper is softer metal and wears out before lever
