Intermatic t101

99% chance the Timer wires are reversed ... and line from breaker and line to pump are reversed. Or remotely possibly the circuit is 240V, and somebody changed clock motor on old T101 from WG1570 to WG1573, converting old T101 into T102...

How to wire a ge 15350 timer for two 120 circuits

1) Copy following links for GE 15350 timer single-pole single-throw 120Volt timer (Made by Tork, same as Tork 1101):

2) Use following link to control one 120volt load

2) To control two 120Volt loads:
Use wiring illustration above.
2nd 120V load will have black and white wire, same as 1st 120V load..
Connect 2nd black wire to terminal 2.
Both wires must be same gauge and solid wire. Do not use stranded wire under screw-down plates.
Connect 2nd white wire to terminal X.
Except do not connect more than 2 wires to screw-down terminals. Instead join white wires with wire nut, and then add jumper that connects between wire nut and screw-down terminal.

Can't get timer to work. Wires R red, blue,green. Is red hot, blue neutral?

You should've fixed your Intermatic timer for $20 with new clock motor or trippers.

GE 15306 is 120Volt timer.
You probably have 240Volt power to pump.

Copy following links to help solve problem, and repair the Intermatic timer so you can return the GE for refund at Home Depot.

I have a new GE 15306 Mechanical Time Switch and need to wire it up to 2 white and 2 black wires that I had on my old timer. I need more information on the wiring than is on the diagram on cover of metal...

GE 15306 is a version of 120Volt Tork 1101 indoor-outdoor timer sold at Home Depot under GE name and number.

You have 2 cables.
One cable comes from Breaker box, and other cable goes to Load (light, fan, motor, pump).
Each cable has black and white wire.
1) Cable from breaker box: Black wire H Hot connects to to terminal L.
Notice there is a metal bridge that connects terminal L and terminal 1.
If metal bridge is missing, use a jumper wire and connect L and 1.
White N Neutral from breaker box connects to terminal X.
2) Cable going to Load:
Black connects to terminal 2
White connects to terminal X.
So both white wires are on terminal X.

GE Mechanical Timer Box 15306. The manual on off works the sign but the timer is not keeping time. The clock hasn't changed at all. Is there a way to start clock. This is a brand new timer

Make sure the bridge is installed between terminal L and terminal 1. Make sure the incoming hot wire is connected to terminal 1 and the outgoing load wire is connected to terminal 2. If they are swapped it will give the symptoms that you described. Both neutrals should be connected to the X terminal. If the connections are as above and the timer still doesn't work, it's defective, return it to the store for a replacement.

GE Indoor Outdoor Timer # 15306 the clock is working and the when the time for it to go on it goes on but when the time comes for it to shut off it does not trip the off switch. I then have to shut it down...

1) If analog dial keeps time, I can only guess that OFF tripper is not in position correctly, or tripper is worn or defective, or that manual override lever is defective. Trippers are made of softer metal so they wear down before other parts of timer.
2) Buy Tork P47 trippers to replace GE 15306 trippers

3) Open following link for GE timer resources:

4) 15306 is heavy-duty indoor-outdoor version of Tork 1800 series or 7200 series 120Volt analog timer that is sold online and at Home Depot under GE brand name.

5) You can buy new timer at Home Depot and return defective one in new package.

6) The on and off trippers are attached to the analog dial.
Dial rotates as time passes.
Trippers make physical contact with the manual override lever. The ON tripper pushes lever one direction and the OFF tripper moves lever other direction.
The override lever rotates a cam located on back of timer that opens and closes electrical contacts.

Installing a outdoor timer t104m this is for the pool cleaner,need wireing to pool pump timer.

Open following link for wiring diagrams and manual.

240Volt T104 can be wired many different ways.
What is the significance of 'next to the pool pump timer?'
Are you getting power off the 240V pool pump timer to operate the new T104? This is perfectly fine. The pool pump wires would bring power from the breaker box.
Is the new T104 going to control 120Volt lights? The timer can do that, it just has to be wired correctly.
In any case, the T104 has 240Volt (or 277V) clock motor, and clock will not operate with 120V

If you add specific details, I can help with exact wiring diagram for your project.
