SOURCE: Intermatic pool pump timer, time clock won't turn

Check your wiring, it sounds like it's not right. The clock needs 120 volts to run.

Have you programmed the new one with all the info for date and time? Did you set the zones for the days you want and watering times?

SOURCE: Starck clock wrong time zone

-Make sure clock is in radio sync mode. This is in the manual so won't repeat here.
-Press & release SELECT. Clock time numbers should flash
-Press & hold SELECT. It should enter clock settings mode
-Bottom of screen next to moon phase you should see the current time zone. PST after reset
-UP & DOWN will move through time zones.
-Press & release SELECT when done.
-Each time SELECT is pressed will move to a new setting like 12/24 hour etc.
-Press SELECT until clock numbers stop blinking or leave it alone to return to normal mode
-This should also work on the other Oregon Scientific Starck models.

How can the orbit mdoel 57894 be progrmed for multiple start times?


The product manual is confusing... how do you set 1-5 am and 2-12 pm and 3-5 pm? The manual says to press program button to choose A B or C programs, but does not give steps for programming or when to press enter to confirm setting... or say which position the dial should be in when programming.

57894 lets you program separately for each station...turn dial to Run Time and use arrow keys to select a station. Press enter or arrow keys to advance to next station.
57894 offers 'select a station', 'pick days of the week or interval between watering for that station', 'duration of watering for that station'. But picking days of the week is not the same as setting exact times 1-5 am and 2-12 pm.
The dial is set to auto for programs to operate..
Don't forget to activate battery located top right on face of timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Orbit-57894.pdf

So the 57894 has more options than a 24-hour analog sprinkler timer that repeats same cycle each day with 14-day-skipper.

I just replaced my pump and rewired it exactly as it was on my other pump. The pump works when I click the breaker on the power panel but the intermatic timer no longer works. Its like it skips it. No...


Question posted under R8806P101C 240Volt sprinkler timer.
With different timer, add a comment for possible help:

Open following links to identify timer and replacement parts, and see typical manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#sprinkler
http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/files/intermatic/products/instructions/timers/r8806p101c%20-%20english.ashx

Your timer is stuck ON.
Temporarily disconnect ground wire at pump to make sure short is not somehow completing 240Volt circuit.
Move toggle switch to Auto position, and then ON and then OFF > Toggle should be able to switch Load on-off. If toggle is problem, then order 133T1115A switch.
Note if the timer dial is rotating and keeping good time: if dial is not rotating, then replace WG733-14D clock motor.
If dial is rotating, the trippers might be worn down. Order 156T1950A trippers.
If dial is rotating, and trippers are good, then relay might be bad. Order 143T139A relay.

Add a comment and say what you discover.

My ge model 15117 heavy duty timer will not go off in the auto mode. I changed it from auto to off to turn my pump on and then went back to auto and now did not turn off when timer expired


I cannot repair defective timers, and there are complaints about this timer's MODE button.
Most people complain they can't get mode to set.
Avoid the MODE button after programming timer.
Reset the timer by pushing CLOCK PROG MODE buttons. Then re-program the timer per instructions, and then press CLOCK button to exit programming and timer is in Auto mode and ready to work.
No need to press MODE after programming timer.
Typically, this timer has limited 1 year warranty.

http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/GE-15117-Manual.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15117
15117 is not heavy duty timer. Both outlets combined are rated 1000 watts incandescent and 1/4 HP. Check nameplate on your pump for HP rating.

For limited-lifetime-warranty timer, rated 1/3 HP, choose Intermatic HB800RCL 2-outlet timer.
Cost twice as much as GE 15117.
For 1HP outdoor pumps choose Intermatic P1121

I have 4 zones can run them manually; but they will not come on the automatic setting. Springs are strong; timer itself keeps accurate time. I did read inside the box about a "Silver Pin"...


If zones are not advancing, then 1) Clock motor is not rotating dial > replace clock motor, 2) on-off trippers are worn down > replace trippers, 3) or the day skipper is set to skip all days and all skipper pins are pushed down, 4) or sprinkler valve is bad.

The sprinkler timer dial rotates each 24 hours. The trippers cause sprinkler head to turn on zone 1 for example. Zone 1 waters until the dial rotates to part of dial with no tripper. Without a tripper on the dial, the timer turns off circuit to sprinkler. At this point, the sprinkler valve mechanically advances to zone 2 and waits for timer to turn off again. The timer does not advance sprinkler to next zone > the sprinkler valve is designed to advance each time circuit turns off. The timer just turns on and off. When next tripper rotates around, the timer turn on the circuit and zone 2 begins to water.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/How-to-Set-and-Troubleshoot-Intermatic-sprinkler-timer.pdf

The silver pin inserted at 12midnight position is for advancing the day skipper wheel.

Have a intermatic sprinkler timer that is has been reconnected to the pump. it works in the manual mode but the timer does not work looking for help on the wiring (video for dummies preferred)


No video.
If manual override works, look to see if dial rotates on time for full 24 hours. If dial keeps good time, then timer clock motor is wired correctly. If dial stops rotating after tripper passes, then wiring is wrong. If trippers are absent or worn down then timer will not turn Load on-and-off.

If this is not your timer, then add a comment with model number that appears on door panel.
The wiring block has 4 screw terminals. From left to right: 1 2 3 4
240Volts cable has two hot leads from breaker box. Hot leads from breaker box connect to screw terminals 1 and 3.
Timer operates 240Volt pump load. Cable to pump load has 2 wires. Connect Load wires to terminals 2 and 4.

I have a GE Heavy Duty Digital Timer product # 15117. It also says it is a Jasco Product. I am having a problem getting the clock function to work. I can set the time yet I do know see where there is an...


My auto function on my GE outdoor timer didn't work orginally. So, I programmed the "on" time to be 5 minutes from the current time (10:15 p.m.), and the "off" time to be the time I wanted (10:30 p.m.). Then I put it on automatic and waited for 10:15 p.m. to arrive. It turned on. Then, I set the "on" time to 5:30 p.m. and it works fine now. Apparently, it has to cycle through the "on" time in order to activate the auto function.

The yellow time dial has stopped turning and the auto switch cannot activate the sprinklers


If I understand correctly, the manual override does not work, and the clock dial does not turn.

It seems odd that both things would happen together. Usually the clock motor stops but the manual override still works.

Check that your timer has electricity. Check your breaker. It sounds like the electricity is off.

Does your manual override snap clean and crisp, or it it sluggish? If the manual override is sluggish, the timer mechanism may be rusted.

Snap the timer out from the box and look at the condition of the gears, and the override lever. If the timer is rusty and the manual override does not snap clean and crisp, then the timer needs to be replaced. Buy a new timer and swap out the insides without changing the box.

You might need a clock motor

Snap out the mechanism and get the number off clock

Intermatic site shows pages of clock motors: They are priced high, but cheaper than new timer.
https://www.intermaticstore.com/ASPI700W.pgm?task=menucntrl&menuopt=TM

Aplus supply sells assortment of Intermatic clock motors.
http://www.aplussupply.com/intermatic/timermotors.htm

To search these pages quickly for your clock numbers, use browser Find (Click edit at top of bowser, click Find)

Intermatic has a page with manuals:
Open page, click plus next to timers and scroll down to sprinkler and irrigation timers
http://www.intermatic.com/customer%20service/instruction%20manuals.aspx
It's good to have the manual on hand in case the product is discontinued
