Question about Paragon Hardware & Accessories

1 Answer

We have a Paragon Time, Model #4001-00, TD-1744-00 at our softball field to control bathroom lights. The 2 ears or shut-off and turn-on devices were lost during some electrical work and we cannot find them anywhere in our area. So, we need new ones.

Thank you for including model number.

1) Open following link to identify timer and download manual
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#4000
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Paragon-4000-24hr-7000-7day.pdf

2) 4001-00 series is heavy duty Nema 1 indoor 40 amp 120Volt mechanical timer with analog dial.
I don't recognize TD-1744-00

I'm not sure what you mean by 'ears'

3) Maybe you mean X2772 trippers?
Trippers are set on dial to control on-off switching.
If trippers are missing, Google search for X2772 tripper and some places still sell them.

4) If another part is missing, you might not be able to find that part, but you can photograph the problem and add a comment to this thread and include photograph so I can look at it.

5) if you have to replace timer, some places still sell Paragon 4001-00, or replacement is Intermatic T101 or T103 timer

1) If circuit breaker is not tripped or shorted, then timer clock motor has probably gone bad.

2) Some places still sell paragon timers, depending on model number.
But model number given is for 240Volt timer.

3) The clock motor is not available that I can find.
Paragon is no longer making the 4000 series timers or parts
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#4000

4) Model number given does not match wiring terminals shown in manual.
4014 is DPST 240Volt timer with 4 wiring terminals labeled 1 2 3 4.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Paragon-4000-series.pdf

5) Paragon 4000 series timer with terminals 1 2 3 is 120Volt timer.

6) Replace 120Volt timer with Intermatic T101 indoor timer or T101R outdoor timer.

How i can do the instalation


1) Need more information.
Heres some help to get you started, then you add a comment and fill in details so I can give accurate answer.

2) You posted under Paragon 7008-00 timer.

3) People post under Paragon when they have Tork, so I need exact model number and what voltage you have and what Load you are trying to wire.

4) Also what terminals appear on timer, since any timer can be in a box that is marked 7008.
Then add what color wires you have coming from breaker box, what size breaker, and if same breaker is going to supply voltage to timer and to Load, and what color wires are going to Load.

5) Open following link to identify timer for sure, and see manual and wiring diagrams.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#7000

6) Typical wiring diagram for 7008 showing one set of NO NC terminals:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Paragon-7008-00-timer-wiring-350.jpg

7) 7008 timer has 120Volt clock motor. So power to terminals A and B has to be 120V.
But timer can still control 120V or 240V loads.

8) According to manual, 7008 timer has 2 NO (normally open) terminals that are OFF when timer is OFF
Timer also has 2 NC (normally closed) terminals that are ON when timer is OFF

9) Both sets of terminals reverse when timer turns ON.

10) NO and NC terminals are frequently used for continuous-operation 2-speed motors, for example.
You do not want power to both speeds at same time, or motor will burn out. So low speed is connected to NO terminal, and high speed is connected to NC terminal. This way the motors windings are kept separate, and either low speed is ON or high speed is ON.

11) Another example of NO NC terminals could be store lighting. When store closes, the timer turns off exit signs and store-room lights inside store, and at same moment timer turns on burglar alarm and outdoor lights. In this example the timer controlled 4 different circuits: exit signs, store-room, alarm, and outdoor lights. With 2-NO and 2-NC terminals, that is possible.

I have a 4003 osz time clock and it does not turn lights on and off. Where can I get new insides for the same box.


As of November 2010 or before, Paragon is no longer making timers or parts except Defrost timers.
4003 0SZ is not a defrost timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html

0SZ suffix appears to be 120Volt astronomic time clock that turns ON at Dusk and OFF at Dawn
4003 is DPST 120Volt 40 amp mechanical timer

Intermatic mechanical astronomic clocks:
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/mechanical%20time%20switches/astronomic.aspx
These time clocks are Indoor-outdoor and can control 3 different 120V Loads, for example store light in front, outdoor light in back, and outdoor sign. All Loads turn on-off at same time.
Beverly Hills shows the V4547r

Intermatic also makes electronic astronomic time pieces where voltage is selectable, with many timing options (programming is detailed and complicated):
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/electronic%20time%20switches/astronomic%20electronic.aspx
NEMA1 is indoor box
NEMA 3R is indoor-outdoor box.
SPST means timer can control 1 Load
SPDT can control 2 120V Loads
1000 Bubs sells the ET8115C

NEED TO REPLACE A PARAGON MODEL 4001 24 HOUR TIME SWITCH WITH KNOCK OUT FOR CONDUIT CONNECTION ON TOP


Paragon 4001 is 120Volt SPST indoor timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html

I've never seen knock-outs for these timers on top because the timing mechanism is in the way.

Turn timer sideways, the timing mechanism still works.

We have an AMF Paragon 4001 timer for the light outside our building. The light goes on lately at the wrong time. We want it to be on at 7:00pm and off and 5:00am but it goes on at 12:00 at noon.


To set paragon timer: Pull large round dial straight out towards you, then rotate dial until correct time is lined up with stationary 'pointer' on front of dial

I'm trying to set the times on a paragon amf 7 day timer


There should be 2 trippers for each day, the trippers slide on the outside of the dial and would point to the time of day you want your lights on and off. The silver trippers may be gone on that aged time clock, but are easily obtainable.
