Tork makes a page-full of timers.

Rotate dial until current time lines up with arrow, then set the pins as shown in photo below

1) If timer plugs into wall receptacle, it has pins around the dial.
2) If timer replaced a wall switch it also has pins around dial.

GE and Woods and Tork and Intermatic each make similar timers.
Pull and push the pins to set times.
The wall-switch type timer also has a switch >>> move switch to Timer

SOURCE: i do not know how

Open following link to identify timer, with information for trippers and replacement clock motor:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101

The clock motor rotates analog timer dial clockwise as time passes.
Trippers on the dial move lever that rotates a cam that opens and closes electric circuit.
To set current time, manually rotate timer dial until current time lines up with the word Timer located near the 5 o'clock position.
If the dial is not rotating oe keeping good time, then clock motor is bad.
If trippers don't move the lever, then trippers are worn down.

You posted under Tork 8601 timer:
I don't think that clock motor is sold separately.
New timer costs 115 at Chapman:
http://shop.chapmanelectric.com/tork-8601-minute-120v-spdt-p-2361-l-en.html

120Volt Tork clock motor that fits some models is sold at frontier for $43:
http://www.frontierlighting.com/product.jsp?part=10431&process=search&show=&ID=,Photo.Cells...Time.Controls,Replacement.Motors

Usually the clock motor is held with 2 screws and then wires attach to screw terminals.
Look close at your screw terminals to see clock wires.
Normally timer mechanism snaps out of box and clock motor is on back of mechanism.

How do i program a tork dtu40 timer


1) Copy following link for programming manual and wiring Tork DTU40 40amp timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Tork-DTU40-timer.html

2) The timer mechanism is old Intermatic/Grasslin/GE discontinued model, and then newly re-minted by Tork in 2012. Timer has 1 year limited warranty against defects in workmanship. This timer is protected from surge by the reset feature, but can burn out in heavy surge event. Non-replaceable Internal rechargeable battery retains programming until timer is reset. Always reset new timer to delete trace memories.

3) This timer can be wired many different ways, and timer automatically detects voltage, so there are no dip switches to set. Timer must be wired before power is turned on. Do not spark-test across terminals.

I have a tork 651a . that only works at knight and its a photo cell,go figure....can you help???????????????


Tork 651 timer is dawn-dusk that automatically turns on at dusk.
Open following link to identify timer and download instructions:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-consumer-timers-and-manuals.html#651

If you want ordinary 24-hour on-off timer for outdoors, instead of dawn-dusk timer, then select Tork 611A or Tork 601, or Tork 611 timer shown on same link above.

How do you program a Tork 602A timer? I can't get mine to cycle on and off at a desired time.


The Tork 602A mechanical outdoor timer with 2 grounded outlets.
Tork 601A and 602A manual
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Tork-601A-Manual.pdf
Manual has images of timer that will help.

Plug timer into outdoor outlet.
To set current time, rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Dial is divided into light and dark sections that represent day or nighttime hours.
Reset time after power outage.

96 pins located around timer dial are used to set on-off times.
Each pin represents 15 minutes in 24 hour day
Move pins in-or-out with fingernail or ink pen to set timer on-off functions.
With Tork timers, usually when pins are out, timer is ON.
When pins are in, timer is OFF.
To double-check pin setting, manually rotate timer to watch when lights turn on-off.

Set multiple ON/OFFs each day.
Change on-off times by resetting a pin or two.
Timer repeats every 24-hours.

Manual ON/TIMER switch is located on inner dial.

Set Manual switch to TIMER for programs to operate.
To override time and turn on Load, move override to ON position.
