How can onr tell if timer on Tork 1101 is not working?


Is the dial rotating?

1) Copy following link for Tork 1101 product wiring and manuals:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101

2) Tork 1101 120Volt timer uses #101 clock motor.
If clock motor is working, then dial rotates around clockwise once each 24 hours... assuming timer is wired correctly.

3) Jan 2013, Add a comment and say what you are wiring.

If you have T900, then rotate dial until current time lines up with time pointer located to right of word Tork at bottom of dial.
This timer uses P69 tripper.
#36 120Volt clock motor is dial is lagging or no longer rotating.

15600 wiring problems


You probably have wrong voltage, or wrong wiring.
For example 15600 is 120Volt timer mechanism made by Tork and sold by GE.
This timer will not work with 240volts.
Other cause: Line and Load wires might be reversed.
Check circuit breaker.
Use non-contact voltage tester to see if power is live at timer.
Check wires at each terminal and make sure wire insulation is not under the screw plate.
Copy following link for wiring diagram:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15600

FYI, it is usually cheaper to buy T101 timer than GE15600, and then parts are more widely available and cheaper.
For example WG1570 clock motor for Intermatic T101 is $16.
Tork replacement motor is twice as much.
If you have 240Volt power, instead of 120Volt required by 15600, then you can buy Tork 201 clock motor and replace the 101 motor.
GE 15600 uses Tork p47 trippers.

When pool pump stops at various times when it should be running and not everyday, but sometimes twice a day, if I tap the Tork timer dial it turns on. Only the timer dial, tapping anything else does not...


Could be loose wiring, or bad clock motor.
Check if wires are connected, and make sure only the copper part of wire and no insulation is under the screw plate.
Make sure all wires are same gauge so that screw plate clamps down on wires.
Open following link to identify timer and then add a comment with model number and voltage for possible help. Tork T1100 series has replacement clock motor.

Tork 1104 has 240Volt clock motor

Frontier lighting sells the >> 120V Tork motor: List price 40.33/ your price 45.49
So 120Volt replacement motor costs as much as new replacement timer

GE sells the same 240Volt Tork timer under GE model 15307 in indoor-outdoor enclosure available at Home Depot for $59.00. Year 2011, GE does not pay US income tax, but takes US profits and pays tax in foreign nations. No replacement clock motor is available, but crossover wiring is same.

Tork timer "time clock motor"kaput...someone set


You posted under Tork 8601 timer:
I don't think that clock motor is sold separately.
New timer costs 115 at Chapman:
http://shop.chapmanelectric.com/tork-8601-minute-120v-spdt-p-2361-l-en.html

120Volt Tork clock motor that fits some models is sold at frontier for $43:
http://www.frontierlighting.com/product.jsp?part=10431&process=search&show=&ID=,Photo.Cells...Time.Controls,Replacement.Motors

Usually the clock motor is held with 2 screws and then wires attach to screw terminals.
Look close at your screw terminals to see clock wires.
Normally timer mechanism snaps out of box and clock motor is on back of mechanism.

I have a w100 tork timer and i would like to know how to repair it and how to position the time pointer.


How to position time pointer
Rotate disk counterclockwise until current time lines up with silver pointer
Place trippers on outer edge of dial > trippers are reversible so one side of tripper in ON > flip tripper over and it is OFF.
Disk rotates with passing time, trippers click lever ON and OFF at set times

How to repair W100:
If dial is not rotating, then clock motor is bad >> W100 uses 120V clock > check markings on clock. Internet shows Tork T101M and T201M clock motors, but unclear if either clock matches W100 timer.
If dial rotates but trippers do not turn Load on-off then buy P-69 trippers
If manual override turns Loan on-off then electric circuit is working
If manual override does not operate Load, then check electric circuit or Load (light bulbs burned out)
If manual override is sluggish or stuck, and doesn't click crisp and clean, then timer is worn out or needs to be cleaned.

Product Manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#W-series
Link above shows manuals
Manual for W100 does not show specific clock-motor model

To buy parts or another timer
P-69 trippers available on web
Tork T101M and T201M clock motors available on web but unclear if they match W100

http://www.weisd.com/store2/tork/torktimer1.php
Page above sell W-series time dial part #70159 for 72$.
Page does not include photo, so unclear if dial includes clock-motor, or if voltage is 120V
Tork accessories pdf shows part #70159 as dial for W, with no other information

Same seller shows new W100 sells for $148.

Replace Tork with Intermatic, buy T7401B
Website sells T7401B for $114
T7401B is 120V timer and has 120V clock motor
http://www.1000bulbs.com/product/3377/ELEC-T7401B.html

Calibrate clock


http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Tork-8000Series.pdf

Tork 8600 is variable cycle timer.
Each revolution of dial is 60 minutes, 30 minutes or 6 minutes depending on model.
60 minute timer has 2 models, 120V and 240V.
Other models are 120V.
If clock is not keeping time, then clock motor is bad.
I don't have a source for clock motor, and suspect that a new timer is purchased and then installed into existing box.

Link below sells 8601 60 minute 120Volt
http://www.weisd.com/store2/tork/torktimer1.php

To set times, the dial has tabs located around dial.
Tabs are tilted in or out
Tab out = NC terminal has power
Tab in = NO terminal has power
