SOURCE: wiring a dayton timer relay

If i understand you correctly you want to push the button, release it and have the timer give power to the solenoid for 3 more seconds, correct? If this is the case you will need an off delay timer. On delay timers work like this. You push the button, power goes through the timer, at this point the timer starts counting, when the timer reaches its preset point,(3 seconds we'll say) the contacts change till the power to the timer goes off.

If you hook this up with an on-delay timer this is what will happen:
Push the button and release, the timer will tick as long as you hold the button down, till three seconds, then the solenoid will raise until you release the button.

With an off delay this will happen: push button , solenoid begins working, when button is released timer counts 3 seconds while solenoid is still working, then removes power to the solenoid.

The way you would wire the off-delay is like this:
Connect line side of your pushbutton(incoming power side),incoming power and terminal 1 on your base together. next connect the load side (outgoing power side) of your pushbutton and terminal 2 on your base together. Connect terminal 3 to the hot wire or terminal on your solenoid. Lastly connect terminal 7 the incoming neutral wire and the neutral wire or terminal of the solenoid together.

I am telling you how to wire it in my head, if you'll write back with some specifics such as what wire you will use, where your getting power from,what the solenoid current draw is and such i can get a little more detailed. maybe it will make more sense.

Also make sure the timer and pushbutton are rated to handle the solenoids running current. The timer appears to handle 10 amps im not sure what you pushbutton can handle. Also keep in mind the solenoid will operate for whatever time u set it to, after the button is released. There are other ways to do it but this would be the most economical way.

And of course turn the breaker off and test that it is off before working on the circuit. Write back with any problems.

I need wiring diagram for Amana AKT3650E. I have 220VAC supply without a neutral. Electricain says the warning lights need 115VAC. How it that achieved?

So the manual:

says the power requirements are 120/240 VAC 3 wire single phase.

Almost all wiring includes a ground wire, so saying 3 wire also says it additionally has a ground wire. However, many oven outlets were wired using the neutral as the ground (now considered illegal - especially for new installations) - so they had a 3 prong plug.

Metering from any 2 holes (at a time) in the receptacle should reveal 240 V (across the similar slots) and 120 V and 120 V (from outside slots to middle slot).

I want to connect my hayward motor. it has L1, L2, C and ground. i have 4 wires from the control panel 2 black 1 red and green ground. i connected the 2 blacks to the L1 and L2 and the red to the C and the...

Hey Joey-
We need to establish something first!
Is this for a spa or pool. Are you aware that spa motors for the most normal part are "TWO" Speed. When the diagram on a motor shows: L1, L2, C, and then your Ground lug, that is for a 2 speed motor.
A single speed motor will normally be labeled L1, C or N & Ground. Sometimes C or N will be labeled as L2.
Motor manufacturers will normally label the former for 120 vac and the latter for 240 vac powered motors

Now, 2nd-
Electricity is color blind!!! It does not care what color the wire is that it is flowing thru, nor does know what color it is! It will not let the installer know when he is using green wire to connect between a breaker and say L1 of a motor. So, wire colors really will not help us assist you to tell you for sure which color to put where! Just Saying!

What you need to do is get a multi-meter and check each wire to ground. Since you said you have 4 wires, you probably have a 240 vac system and it is not unusual to have two of the same color for each hot 120 vac line. In your case the 2 black wires. Then normally a 3rd wire will be a different color from the two hot lines, which may have been like your Red line. and then a 3rd color wire for the ground, which is normally Green - but again, electricity is Color Blind, and it doesn't care what color the wire is. It is for our convenience to quickly identify wires by an accepted standard of colored wires. Black or Red for hot, White for common/neutral and Green for ground.

Anyway if you get two wires reading hot - 120 vac, take note of those wires. Then read across both of them - should be 240 or there abouts. Then check for continuity between the two other wires. If there is they are both downstream connected to a ground, but one is probably connected to an isolated neutral bus bar & is used as your 120 vac common or neutral and the last one is ground.

Tork 1104 is wired 120 vac. hot wire connected to L with jumper wire to wire for outdoor lights connected to X. nuetral wires are wire nutted together. not connected to timer. clock not working....

The clock isn't working because the Tork 1104 clock motor requires 240 volts. Jumping the 120 volts over from terminal L to terminal 1 doesn't make it 240 volts. You need another 120 volt leg (180 degrees out of phase) to do that. The Tork 1103 timer is what you need, or change the 1104 clock motor to a 120 volt.

Heater is not heating up.

First, is this a 120 VAC or 240 VAC heater? 120 VAC heater will usually have one Black & one White wire and 240 VAC heater will usually have two Black wires or one Black & one Red wire. If it is a 120 VAC heater then you need to supply the white wire at the heater with a neutral (white) wire from the breaker panel. If it is a 240 VAC heater then you need to verify that you have 240 VAC at the heater from Black lead to Red lead. If you are not sure about how to do this please have an experienced electrician look at it so you don't get electrocuted and/or burn up your new heater. Hope this helps!
