1 Answer

The red tripper is ON.

Put trippers into dial, and then manually rotate dial to see how the lights turn on-off.
Rotate the round override switch and then rotate the dial again to see what affect the override switch has.
These actions will help you understand how to set power pack.

Sounds like the OFF tripper is worn down.
Timer needs to be replaced unless you have Intermatic-brand timer.

Intermatic is only company that sells plastic replacement trippers for their timers.
Except Intermatic on-off trippers are typically red-green.
It's possible your trippers faded in color.

How to set times


You posted under Tork 8000 series cycling timer
Open following link to identify timer for sure and download wiring and instruction manuals.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#8000

Cycling timers have built-in trippers (or tabs) located on outer edge of dial
Lift each tripper up and rotate it toward center of dial to set on-off times.
The dial rotates as time passes, and the trippers move lever that turns load on-off.

For example if you have 8601 timer, the dial cycles every 60 minutes or once per hour.
Each tripper represents 1 minute.
So if you want NO terminals turned ON for 2 minutes each hour, then move 2 successive trippers up.
If you want NC terminals turned ON for 58 minutes, then leave 58 successive trippers down.

How to set it to switch on for 5 minutes every 15minutes.


If you add a comment and say which timer you have, I can help with specific information.
Regular off-the-shelf timers will not cycle the way you want.
If you want a timer to cycle ON 5 minutes for every 15 minutes, you will need a cycle timer.
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-C8835-Timer-Minute-Cycle/dp/B000GHLV5K
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/mechanical%20time%20switches/repeat%20cycle.aspx
This timer rotates around in full circle each 30 minutes.
Set trippers around outer edge of timer dial.
Unit shipped with 10 trippers, each tripper represents 15 seconds so you would need 40 trippers.
20 trippers = 5 minutes.

I need a set of trippers for a Paragon 4001 switch timer. Need both "On " and "off" trippers. Can you find some?


Paragon 4000 series timers uses X2772 tripper
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html

Google search x2772 tripper
Frontier Lighting shows they are out.
A couple other places show 56-60 dollars for the tripper

In November 2010, I got e-mail from Paragon saying that Paragon stopped making timers and parts for timers, except for defrost timers. 4001 is not defrost timer.

Intermatic has cross-reference link if you want to buy new timer:
http://www.intermatic.com/customer%20service/competitive%20cross%20reference.aspx
Cross reference shows T-101 timer matches your timer.

Aplus supply sells T101 for $60
http://www.aplussupply.com/intermatic/timer.htm
Amazon sells T101 for 43$ with free shipping over 25$

How do you set the timer? It stays on after it has been tripped "off"


15004 timer with 2-prong polarized outlet is carried by Amazon
1 reviewer said OFF pin broke soon after timer was in service.
http://www.amazon.com/review/R1Z9VUX53Y61C1

Jasco does not have 15004 manual posted yet,.
I looked yesterday, and will continue searching.

15004 timer operates by putting green and red trippers in place at times you want timer to turn on-off.
Motor rotates clock dial as time passes.
Plastic trippers located on outer edge of dial contact a lever.
Trippers flip lever back and forth.
On tripper flips lever one direction.
Off tripper flips lever other direction.
Lever closes and opens electrical contacts that turn lights on-and-off.

Since this $7.35 timer is made of plastic, and has trippers, it will break easily. Which is confirmed by Amazon review.

GE markets heavier duty timer that costs more.
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002HEY300/?tag=picc-20
This type of timer has segments located around edge of dial.
When segments are down, lights are ON
Lever rides along segments until a segment is pulled up.
When segments are up, lever springs inward which opens electrical circuit and turns lights OFF.
This system is more reliable than trippers, and timer lasts longer.
But it's still made of plastic.

Woods markets similar 3-prong timer.

How to wire T-101 120Volt timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

How Intermatic dial timer clock works.
Clock motor rotates dial.
Intermatic clock motor, located on back of mechanism, are replaceable
Trippers located on outer edge of dial push on-off lever
ON tripper pushes lever one direction
OFF tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
Lever pushes electrical contacts together and pulls contacts apart.
When lever moves, manual override also clicks back and forth with audible click.
To replace timer, replacement snaps into box without needing to changing box.

T-101, T013, T-104 use same trippers.

I want a programmable timer that can, eg, switch on a single phase electric motor for 10 seconds every hour. It may be 9 secs or 11 secs.


You need a programmable interval timer.

http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#ET70
Intermatic and Tork make digital timers with interval settings that can be set for specific short-duration with 1 minute minimum.
(Or set to pulse bell ringing with 1-127 seconds.
10 minutes is 600 seconds)
For example ET70115 single-channel timer.
The timer would be set for 24-hour operation, and then programmed for Pulse, and then set timer with 24 programs, with 1 program for each hour.

Mechanical cycle timers from Intermatic:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#cycle
1) Talento 1 hour cycle timer/ each tripper represents 1.25 minutes
2) Model C8835/ each tripper represents 15 seconds.
To operate these timers certain hours of the day, add another timer in-line.
The in-line timer could be digital, but remember digital timers are not protected from power surge and tend to have more problems, and do not have replaceable clock motors and trippers.
