Question about Intermatic 24 Hour Outdoor Timer HB31R

1 Answer

Product: Intermatic 24 Hour Outdoor Timer HB31R. After many years of service, this unit suddenly stopped working. The unit was always turned on manually and allowed to shut off at a specified time . . . 2-4 hours. It is used to run an irrigation pump. We plugged the unit in, turned it on, and checked the outflow plug with a volt meter . . . nothing. Is it fixable or does it need to be trashed? Many thanks for your input!

I need replacement clips to a hb31r timer, were can i find them?


I have 2 links to plastic Intermatic trippers.
I search timers each day, and have not run across a different plastic Intermatic tripper.
images on page will let you compare with your tripper:

http://www.hottubwarehouse.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=156PB10398A

If this tripper is correct, add a comment and help fixya community give this information to others asking same question.

If this tripper is incorrect, then HB31 tripper may not be available.
Large number of timers do not have replacement trippers.

My HB31R runs slow. Is there any adjustment ability to the timer mechanism to achieve a correct 24 hour timer.


http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/consumer%20outdoor%20timers/electromechanical%20timers/hb31r.aspx

HB31R heavy duty 1800 Watt outdoor plug-in timer is one-piece unit that does not come apart for repairs.

Usually with these mechanical dial timers, when the clock motor starts getting weak, the timer dial starts to stall when tripper meets on-off lever.
And then timers runs slow.
At this point, the little plastic gears are getting stripped out, or the clock motor is overheating.
In either case, the clock motor is spiraling downward.

If this is new timer, take it back.
If this is older timer, the manual and fact sheet do not show a warranty.
New HB31R on ebay for $15

Woods makes 1200 Watt outdoor timer, but lighter weight than Intermatic:
http://www.amazon.com/Woods-59204-Weather-Outdoor-Repeats/dp/B0014WRNNK

With larger heavy duty outdoor timers like the Intermatic T-101R outdoor 120Volt timer, you can buy the clock motor separate and replace when clock goes bad. And you can buy the trippers separate. However T100 series timers are not plug-in, they are hard-wired. T-101 is made to last 10-15 years, but cost $60-70. My local Lowes sells them in stock for less.

Open following link to identify timer and download manual:
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/consumer%20outdoor%20timers/electromechanical%20timers/hb31r.aspx

Manual has too many words than fixya allows for free answer.
So I cannot copy manual here.

However you can add a comment any time and say exactly where the manual is confusing. I will respond back and help if possible.

Where to find intermediate gear -about 1/2 " in diameter.


The following is a link to the only site I have seen that sells just the gears for the Intermatic timer clock motors. I took my clock motor apart and this was the gear that was bad. The first link is to the site and the second link is to the picture of the gears to make sure it is what you are looking for. http://www.stuartsinger.com/ballclock.htm#Replacement Parts
Picture of gears: http://www.stuartsinger.com/Ball%20Clock%20Web/Ball%20Clock%20Pics/Gears.jpg
Hope this helps, Chuck
