My Intermatic T101 has power going to it and the clock works normally. But when the clock trips the switching lever to ON or I manually turn it to on, it does not put out power. Is there any sort of fuse...


There is no fuse inside the T101.
If timer clock motor is working correctly, then 120Volt circuit is fine up to the timer.
Unknown if this is new installation , or old installation that stopped working.
Wiring might be bad, such that line and load wires are reversed.
Or light bulb might be bad.

I just replaced my filters and turned on the power and now I get nothing?


More information is needed.
Question posted under Intermatic T101 120Volt timer. Timer model number appears on inside of timer door. Add a comment any time and it sends email and I will respond.

Open following link for Intermatic timer troubleshoot walk-thru:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-Intermatic-timer.html

When you turned off power, did you turn off circuit breaker? Or turn off manual override on timer?
If circuit breaker is turned on, does the timer dial rotate?
If timer dial rotates and keeps good time, then electricity to timer is good, timer clock motor is good.
If dial is rotating, what happens when you move override lever back and forth? Does load turn on?
Read through troubleshoot on link above and then add a comment with more details if needed.

Apparently, the spring under the timer dial on my 4001 timer has been broken and the timer will no longer trip the trippers. Can this be fixed? It is a nearly-new unit and I like it.


Open following link for Paragon resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#4000

Individual parts are not sold except for X2772 tripper.
Move the manual override lever back and forth and see if load turns on-off.
Watch if on-and-off trippers are moving override lever back and forth, to see if problem is a worn tripper instead of broken spring.

Replacement 4001-00 timers are sold, even though Paragon is no longer making timers except defrost timers.

Intermatic T101 timer


T101 timer is strictly 120Volt timer
Wiring and manual show on following link
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

See another image of wiring:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T-101-control-120V-Load-450.jpg

Amazon sells T101:
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-T101-Hour-Dial-Timer/dp/B00002N5FN

If timer is not functioning, add a comment.

Grainger sells 125V clock motor and tripper for T100 series timers.
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi
If manual override does not turn Load ON, and the lever snaps crisp and clean, then check electric circuit. Check if load is operable.
If override does not snap crisp and clean, then timer may be worn out.
If dial does not rotate, replace clock motor.
If dial rotates but does not click override back and forth, then replace trippers.

How T101 works:
Lift and rotate dial until current time lines up with silver pointer
Clock motor rotates dial.
ON-OFF trippers attached outer edge of dial contact a lever.
ON tripper pushes lever one direction.
Off tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
Lever opens and closes electrical contacts.
Lever also pushes manual override lever back and forth with audible click.

Don't know what is it used for,and how it operates?I don't have any instructions for it.


You posted under T101 timer.
Most box timers have model number and instructions pasted on inside of door.
Instructions can seems a foreign language sometimes.

If your timer is different than T101, then add a comment with timer number.
I have extensive files on timers.

Box timers are generally used for heavy amperage loads like outdoor lights, swimming pool pumps, water heaters, parking lot lights and lighted outdoor signs.
They are surface mounted near breaker box, or in attic or basement, or garage.
Box timers are used in schools to ring bells, and inside factories to run processes and fans.
Some are complicated electronic devices used to control machines with one second precision.
Mechanical box timers are noisy when turning on-off, so are generally not installed in living area of house.

T101 timer is least complicated of any timer.
It is used for ordinary household 120V circuit.
Timer has 120Volt clock motor, and controls 120Volt circuit.
For example 120Volt water heater, or 120V grow lights, or aquarium, or any application up to 2 horsepower, for example timer can be located inside garage to control outdoor lights.
T101R is raintight outdoor box, with rubber gasket on door that seals tight when closed.
Raintight boxes are installed outdoors to operate 120Volt spas and pool pumps.
When box timer is rated for indoor, there is no rubber gasket on door, and that box is called NEMA 1 enclosure.
My local Lowes sells T101 T103 T104 > and each is for slightly different purpose and each wires differently.
Link below shows wiring and manuals for T100 series timers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

Here's how T100 series timer works:
Lift and rotate yellow dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.
Clock motor rotates dial as time passes.
Clock motors are accurate for years, but current time has to be reset after power outage.
ON-OFF trippers are placed on outer edge of dial.
Trippers push a lever, and lever turns circuit on-and-off.
ON tripper pushes lever one direction.
OFF tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
Each time lever is pushed, manual-override lever clicks back and forth with audible sound.

How do I reset the time needle on my intermatic modle t101 The screw was loose and the needle move so


T101 Intermatic is 120Volt electro-mechanical timer

Silver pointer is located at 6:00 position.
Tighten the center screw with star screwdriver
Lift and rotate yellow dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.

geno_3245_71.jpg

How electro-mechanical timers work:
Place ON-OFF trippers on dial.
Trippers rotate around with passing time.
Trippers encounter on-off lever.
OFF tripper clicks lever one direction.
ON tripper clicks lever other direction.
Manual override lever clicks back and forth each time on-off lever is clicked.
