Hi,
Hook the green wires to the metal of the switch...
Then hook the black coming in to one of the outer screws, then hook the white coming in to the other outer screw...
Hook the two leads from the pump to the inner screws and you will be good to go!!!..
It really is not that hard...

Here is a tip that has a picture of a pressure switch wired...in this one there is a red and black for the power in and the power out...the in wires are on the one side of each contact and the out wires are on the other side..

I have a pressure switch tc2151 that I want to replace as the original was acting up. Now the new one pops the breaker. we have switched the wires around and nothing. please help


The wiring could be wrong. Make sure the two pump leads are one on each side of the switch and the same with the black and white power leads. They should also be opposite each other on the switch. If you look at it from left to right, it should be white (neutral), motor lead, motor lead, black power (hot). Make sure that the switch is set right for how much power your putting to it. If your power is 230 volts ac, make sure the switch is set for that much voltage. If it's 115 volts ac, make sure the switch is set for that. Another problem could be the motor. If its having a hard time starting up, that could blow the breaker. Motors use up to 10 times their operating amps when they start up. Let me know if this helps.

How to wire recepticle for pump 240v, 2-speed fan motor 240v, purge pump 240v


If you are asking how to wire up a receptacle to run a 240 volt pump, you need to have a box on the roof first of all. You will need a 20 amp double pole breaker for this. You will need to pull 2- hot wires from the breaker box, 1- neutral, and a bare ground wire. Size of wire would be # 12 THHN stranded wire. A total of 4 wires. This would be to code. Or, buy enough Romex wire, #12 with ground wire and red, black, and white in side, tie into the breaker that way. Red and black will be your hot wires to pump, if it has no neutral you can use both the white and bare to ground, very easy to do.I hope this is what you wanted to know.

WH40 water heater timer: Does black wire from service box go to terminal #1 and black wire to water heater to terminal #2? Does neutral (white) from service box go to terminal #3 and neutral (white) to...


WH40 is 240Volt timer.
WH40 will not work with 120V circuit.

See WH40 wiring illustration at following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-EH40-hot-water-heater-timer.html

There are two hot wires in 240V circuit because every circuit requires two wires to complete the circuit.
Hot wires from breaker connect to terminal 1 and 3.
Notice that small white wires are also connected to terminals 1 and 3.
Small white wires power clock motor located on back of mechanism, so this says power from breaker box must arrive on terminals 1 and 3. This insures that clock motor runs continuously.
If clock motor only runs when manual override switch is clicked ON, then your Hot and Load wires are reversed.

Bare ground wire connects to green ground screw.
Wires going to Load (water heater) connect to terminals 2 and 4.

FYI: Terminal A is not used unless circuit also has a Neutral wire,
See basic water heater circuit Diagram #2:
http://waterheatertimer.org/240-v-water-heater-circuit.html

Terminal A is also used if you want to convert WH40 to 120V timer by replacing 240V clock with 120V clock.

How to wire a 1104 series time switch


8896f6e.jpgTork 1100 series

Tork 1103 can control 120V or 240V Loads (fan light motor)
It can control 1 or 2 different Loads
Tork 1103 has 5 screw terminals
L 1 Unmarked X 2

The Tork 1103 has a 120V clock motor that consumes 3 Watts and costs $3.50 per year to operate.
1) You have to have a white Neutral wire from breaker box connected to Unmarked terminal no matter if you are controlling 120V or 240V Load
2) You have to have a black Hot wire from breaker connected to terminal L no matter what load

If you have 1 Load 120V:
Terminal L black hot from breaker
Terminal 1 no wire
Unmarked terminal white neutral from breaker
Terminal X black wire going to Load
Terminal 2 no wire
White wire going to Load connects to Unmarked terminal
So 2 white wires are on terminal 2

If you have 2 Loads 120V (Load1 Load2)
Terminal L black hot from breaker
Terminal 1 jumper your black hot from Terminal 1
Unmarked terminal white neutral from breaker
Terminal X black wire going to Load1
White wire going to Load1 connects to Unmarked terminal
Terminal 2 black wire going to Load2
White wire from Load2 connects to Unmarked terminal
So 3 white wires are on terminal 2

If you have 2 Loads 240V
Terminal L black hot from breaker
Terminal 1 jumper your black hot from Terminal 1
Unmarked terminal white neutral from breaker (no other wires connect to this terminal)
Terminal X black wire going to Load1
White wire going to Load1 connects back to 240V breaker
Terminal 2 black wire going to Load2
White wire from Load2 connects back to 240V breaker

How do I wire an intermatic t-103 timer switch


The T-103 has a 120Volt clock motor

From there, the wiring can go two directions depending on your Load voltage (load is the fan, light or motor that timer turns on-off)

Here is a link that shows exact wiring:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T103

When wiring the T-103, steps 1-2-3 are true for 120V or 240V installation:
1) A white Neutral wire is always connected to terminal A (Neutral wire connects to Neutral busbar in breaker box)
2) A black Hot wire is always connected to terminal 1 >> this hot wire can come from 120V or 240V breaker
3) Black wire going to Load (fan, light, motor) is always connected to terminal 2
The following step is true for 120V Load
4) if Load is 120V, then white wire from Load connects to terminal A
The following steps are true for 240V Load
5) Only the neutral wire connects to terminal A as described in (1
6) The second Black hot from breaker box (240V has 2 hot wires) connects to terminal 3
7) The second White going to Load connects to terminal 4

Here are 2 more links that show how 120V and 240V circuits are wired

I need a wiring diagram for hayward pool filter model K48m2n11b3


Are you trying to wire a pool pump?
I found manuals at the Haywood site > I saw nothing for K48m2n11b or anything close to that number
http://www.haywardnet.com/inground/products/manuals.cfm

But lets work on the problem and see if I can give you some help:

After opening a few manual and searching for the word 'volt' and 'pump' ... each manual talks about 'pumps' generically, as if the pump is a separate purchase item.

Lower down on the manual page they have a list of pool pumps. A search for the word 'volt' inside the pump manuals says 'match supply voltage to motor nameplate voltage.'

As you know, each electric device has a label showing voltage, wattage, etc. Your pump should show 120Volts or 240V. I didn't see any mention of 3 phase wiring, so I assume your Haywood pump runs on typical residential wiring? And that you are not using 440Volt or 3 phase.

The 120Volt pump will have a black, white and bare ground.
The 240Volt pump will probably have a black, white, red and bare ground
The 240Volt pump could have a black white and bare ground

First the 120V pump:
The 120Volt line from your breaker box will have a black Hot wire, white Neutral wire and bare ground >>> this wire connects color-to-color with pool pump

Next the 240V pump with black, white, red and bare ground
a) The 240Volt line from your breaker box can have the same 4 wires, in which case they connect color-to-color
b) The 240Volt line from your breaker box could have a black white and bare ground, in which case the black goes to black, the white goes to red, the bare coppers are connected, the white pump wire is capped off and not used. If pump does not operate with this wiring, another line from the breaker with wires that match pump might be necessary.

The 240V pump with black white and bare ground
a) The 240Volt line from breaker can have black, white, red and bare ground, in which case the black goes to black, the red goes to white, bare grounds are connected, the white wire is capped off
b) The 240Volt line from from breaker can have black white and bare ground, and this connects color-to-color to the pump

HOW do you know if line from breaker is 120V or 240V?
If you know which breaker wire is connected to, then it's easy
If you do not know which breaker
-turn off power
-separate wires so they can be tested
-use ordinary tester
-stand on dry boards
-tape tester leads to sticks so hands are away from power

-turn on power
-test each wire to bare copper
-tester lights up on Hot wire
-120V line will have 1 Hot wire
-240V line will have 2 Hot wires

How do you wire a intermatic t103


I'm looking at the T-103 sitting here in my office.
Terminals are labeled: A 1 2 3 4
I have about 10 different Intermatic timers on the shelves & each is a bit different

The T103 has a 120Volt (or 110V) clock motor
You need a white Neutral wire to operate the T103 clock

120V: Let's say your Load (light, fan, pump) is 120V
The white Neutral from breaker box connects to Terminal A
The 120V black Hot wire from breaker box connects to Terminal 1
The black wire going to Load (fan, light, motor) connects to terminal 2
The white wire going to Load connects to terminal A along with the Neutral
Ground wires connects to green ground screw
If your wires from breaker and wires to load are wired in reverse, the timer will turn ON the Load but the timer will not shut the circuit OFF.
To test which wire is Hot and Neutral, look at explanation at bottom of page.

240V: Let's say your Load is 240 Volts (or 220 Volts)
The clock motor is still 120V so you still need a white Neutral wire connected on Terminal A
Now you have 2 Hot wires coming from breaker box
Hot wire 1 from breaker box connects to Terminal 1
Hot wire 2 from breaker box connects to Terminal 3
Wire 1 going to Load connects to Terminal 2
Wire 2 going to Load connects to Terminal 4
Ground wires connects to green ground screw

What if you don't have a Neutral wire and you are wiring a 240V circuit?
240V circuits normally have 2 hots and a ground, but no neutral
Buy the T-104 timer
The T-104 has a 240V clock motor
Wiring for the T-104 is exactly the same as 240V wiring shown above for T103 EXCEPT there is no Neutral on Terminal A, and Terminal A is bare
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

How to test which wire is Hot
Test requires wires with live electricity >>> this is not advisable without precaution
Stand on dry boards, do not touch anything metal, wear dry clothes, do not hold screwdriver in mouth, wear gloves, tape tester leads to wood sticks so hands are away from power
Remove wires from terminals
Separate wires so they can be tested
Turn on power
Test each wire to bare ground wire
Tester lights up on Hot wire(s)
If circuit is 120V, then there is only one Hot wire
If circuit is 240V, then 2 wires will test hot to ground >> these wires will be Hots 1 & 2
Test assumes circuit breaker is functioning normally.

How do you test for neutral?
If you have 120V line with only 1 hot wire, then one of the white wires will be Neutral?
Test Hot wire to each white wire
Tester lights up on neutral

I am trying to connect my new pool motor. I have 3 wires coming out of the box. a black one 120v a white one 120v and a copper (ground). How do I test if it has 240v? How can I connect the motor so works....


Most probable cause is that you have the black and white on the same phase, and that's why you have 120 volts from black to ground and from white to ground, but 0 across black and white. If the motor ran on 120 volts, why are you connecting it to 240?

In any event, in order to get 240 volts, move the white to a circuit breaker that is directly above or below the breaker that feed the black wire. You are supposed to use a 2 pole breaker for 240 volts anyway
