Question about Intermatic Mechanical Timer Switch - Pool Fountain T101
If the clock runs, the only thing left is the switches - and trippers.
If you can power up the pump by manually moving the switch from OFF to ON, that means the switches are good. The trippers are likely going to be the problem.
This timer needs white (or bright metal) "ON" trippers and black "OFF" trippers to turn the pump on and off at the times you select. The picture below shows a white ON tripper at 3PM (between 2 and 4) and a black OFF tripper at 11PM (between 10 and 12). This timer turns the load on at 3PM for eight hours and shuts it off at 11PM. You must have BOTH color trippers to turn ON and OFF. The trippers should be seated fully against the edge of the timer disc, and the screw tightened fully by hand.
More below the picture.
The manual can be seen here. Please rate my reply and good luck!
