1) Dayton 2E214 timer is Grainger number for Intermatic 7801B timer.
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Electromechanical-Indoor-7-Day-2E214

2) Grainger page also show extra on-off trippers for the timer

3) Same/similar timer shows for water heater on following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Boxtype.html#T7400

4) I have a similar manual in my files:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/t7802b-2no-2nc.pdf

5) Intermatic site is offline this weekend but link to iNTERMATIC manuals is following:
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/mechanical%20time%20switches/7%20day%2040%20amp.aspx

6) If link above does now show exact product, then type Intermatic model number into search bar, and it will show manuals.

7) To operate the timer, attach silver and gold trippers to face of dial. See image below of Intermatic 24-hour dial.
The trippers are labeled on and off.
Buy more trippers at grainger if needed.
I have a Dayton time - geno_3245_296.jpg

ON tripper pushes lever that closes circuit and turns water heater ON.
OFF tripper pushes same lever other direction that closes circuit and turns water heater OFF.
Dial rotates as time passes.
To set current time, rotate dial until current time lines up with pointer. The pointer is stationary.
I believe this model has to be reset after power outage.

I don't understand how to set the timer on my UP 15-10-B5/TLC Grundfos circulating pump. When it is not plugged in, we have a hard time getting hot water


Sounds like 2 problems:
1) Crossover and 2) Setting timer
Recirculation system has check valve that stops backflow of water when pump is turned off.
When check valve is clogged with sediment, or has worn out, then cold water enters hot pipe or hot water enters cold pipe when faucet is turned on.
Take apart connection where grundfos connects to both hot and cold pipes, and clean with white vinegar or CLR.

Open following link for setting typical FM/1 analog timer module on Grundfos recirculation pump:
Your timer module may vary in appearance.
Slide switch selector might be located below timer dial.

I don't understand everything being asked, so add a comment any time.

Problem1 is excessive electric bill.
Suspect is new 120Volt Taco recirculation pump.
Look at motor nameplate for amps and watts and HP. Taco pump is usually robust 1/3 HP which is 252 watts or same as running four 60 watt light bulbs.
If pump runs 18 hours per day x 252 watts = 4536 watts or 4.5 Kilowatts per day
Buy a kill-o-watt meter that plugs into outlet, and plug Taco pump into the meter for 48 hours.
This will give you total watts used for that time period.
1000 watts = 1 kilowatt.
Electric bill is probably 12 to 20 cents per kilowatt.
So if Taco uses 4.5 kilowatts per day, that is $.54 to $.90 per day multiplied by 30 days.
So cost is $15 to $30 per month.

Problem2 is Taco runs too long.
Taco operates either by thermostat or by timer. You choose which mode by using slide switch that is usually located under the timer dial. Set switch to TIMER to use timer, and ON to use thermostat, and off to turn TACO off.
If Taco is set for thermostatic operation, the Taco might be defective. Or there could be crossover problem at single handled faucet.
Another problem could be air in the water line: install air vent.

Open following link for Intermatic troubleshoot checklist.

Once timer checks out, you need to check circuit going to water heater.
Water heater might be the problem.
Remove trippers from timer dial and set override lever to ON.

I have a Paragon model 4004-20 Water Heater Timer and I moved the TIME arrow. Now the water heater is not working at all. I am thinking of just restoring full time power to the water heater. I did not...


You are not supposed to move the time arrow.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html

4000 series time arrow is pointed at 8:00.
geno_3245_97.jpg
To set current time, lift and rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with pointer.
Put X2772 trippers on dial at times you want water heater to turn on.
Minimum on-off with Paragon 4000 is 1-1/2 hours because trippers are so fat.
You can replace 4000 timer with electronic timer and control exact on-off down to the minute:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Boxtype.html

Electric water heater heats about 21 gallons of water per hour.
Shower uses 6-9 gallons hot water.
Bath uses 10-12 gallons hot water.
Average water heater that is not connected to timer, runs about 3 hours a day. You can make timer pay off by keeping time schedule lower than 3 hours.

Just bought a house and it has a grundfos timer/pump attached at the hot water tank. I have no hot water and the timer doesn't turn (as I've seen other timers do). Is it supposed to turn so that the...


Grundfos is a sealed unit and not a repairable item.
The timer dial should turn.
And pins located around dial control ON-OFF functions as timer dial rotates.

Does the receptacle have power?
If receptacle has power, and Grundfos is not working, then it is broken.
Grundfos manuals for UP series pumps do not show breakdown or parts list of any kind.
http://www.us.grundfos.com/web/download.nsf/Pages

Bigger question:
Why don't you have hot water?
Is water heater functioning?
Water heater is a separate appliance from Grundfos pump.
Grundfos pump circulates hot water from tank into the lines so there is no waiting for hot water ... but hot water heater should still make hot water.

Add a comment about water heater if that is also a problem.
You could have 2 problems, and water heater is main issue.

NO HOT WATER ON OTHER SIDE OF HOUSE


All of the white pegs on the outside of the dial are on and off times. If they are pushed out they are on and pushed toward the center is off. You want to set those for the times you would usually used hot water. There is a white arrow on the face. You want to rotate the face clockwise until the time of day is infront of the arrow to set the time. Last but not least there is a switch on the right side of the dial it has three settings, on off and timer. If you set it to the clock the pump will turn on and off at the times that were selected on the face. You can also turn it to the constant on position and it will run constantly. I would suggest flipping it to constant on and wait a few minutes to see if it fixes your hot water problems. If not the pump might be bad.

We have a timer on our tankless hot water heater-how do I set it to reflect the current time? It is a large dial with tiny pins to pull/push backward. I understand the on off function of the pins but need...


very simple you push the middle and turn to set it to the timing you want current timing. the best times to set a recirculating pump in a water heater is 20 to 30 min before you take a shower in the mornings 15 min is adeal and dont leave the timer on for more than 15 min which represents each pin. Remember you are trying to recirculate the cold water out off the lines and replace it with new water so next time you open your faucet you get instant hot water. ones hot water is in the line you do not need the pump. i also recomend to set the pump 15 min before you get home or before you take a shower int he afternoons there is really no pint to leave the pump all day or for longer than that because the objective is to replace cold with hot water you can even set it to turn on and off every hour for 15 min at a time if someone is home all day but remember usually the recirculating pump is there for the faucets that are far away from the water heater so if you do not used them all day and only in the morning and at night before going to bed then there is really no point to leave the pump on and waste more electricity.

Need a manual for drayton tempus 3 heating control


I've ended up with a Drayton Tempus 3 when I bought my house, and I think this is how it works. It allows you to set 2 Timers (I'll call them timer 1 and timer 2) so that you can control Hot Water or Heating On/Off times twice a day. The unit has 6 buttons - 2 for Adjustment, 2 for Hot Water and 2 for Heating. The 2 Adjustment buttons allow you adjust the Clock Time, or allow you to adjust Timer 1 and/or Timer 2. NOTE: Timer 1 is the time refered to on the Heating / Hot Water Select buttons if you press "Once". If you select "Twice" on these the both Timer 1 and Timer 2 are taken into account. For example if you want Hot Water to come on Once between 8pm -10pm, but you want Heating to come on Twice between 6am - 7am, and 8pm -10pm, you have to do the following: Set Timer 1 to 8pm - 10pm, and set Timer 2 to 6am -7pm. Then select Once for Hot Water, and select Twice for Heating. Hope this helps.
