Almost any store sells timers for like 7 bucks, just look in the bulb section, its a little square with a dial in the middle you plug in a outlet.

The spring that turns off the power in my Intermatic WH21 timer is broken. Where can I buy a new spring?


Parts are not available for WH21 240V water heater timer.
Timer has 1 year limited warranty.
http://www.intermatic.com/customer%20service/frequently%20asked%20questions.aspx
WH21 is rated for 25Amps and works on water heaters up to 4500Watts.
Look at label on side of tank to see wattage.
WH21 is SPST and turns off one hot wire to water heater.

I ran a business for many years.
Cost of stocking, organizing, and shipping parts is near same cost as new timer.

Following page shows selection of replacement timers:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Boxtype.html

For example, I have tested WH40 and T104 and other timers that show on page.
Trippers and motors are available for Intermatic box timers WH40 and T104, so you can maintain these specific models for many years.
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi
WH40 and T104 timers are SPDT and turn off both hot wires to water heater.
Both timers will work on any wattage residential water heater

I have lost one of the little plastic pegs on my 24 hour timer.. where can i get replacements?


Only plastic trippers on market are for Intermatic:
http://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=intermatic+timer+trippers&tag=googhydr-20&index=aps&hvadid=5156211581&ref=pd_sl_1b2t69w1k6_b

The reason for this: Low cost of buying new timer.
Trippers plus shipping-handling cost more than most new timers.

Look at timers on following links to find replacement that suits your purpose:

My intermatic switch won't turn off the outdoor lights. It covers the original light switch. It has a plastic cover with a extention that press smaller button underneath that says no op see inst. Please...


I answer questions for free.
I specialize in timers.
According to Intermatic, they no longer make the light switch timer.
I cannot find the instruction manual on Intermatic.
http://www.intermatic.com/customer%20service/instruction%20manuals.aspx

From my experience, I suspect that the timer is old and does not function any more.
If this is not correct, add a comment and I will answer

Do you have the auto-circ recirculation pump with timer?
If so, here is manual for that specific product:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}

http://waterheatertimer.org/Auto-circ-manual.pdf
Manual gives instructions for a different timer dial than timer than shows on unit, so they must come with different dials.

Instructions say pegs pulled out = timer on
Conversely, pegs pushed in = timer off
You might be able to hear the pump operating to see if these instructions are correct for your recirculation timer. The kids would love a listening assignment under the sink.

To see images showing how recirculation system operates:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-recirculation-system.html

Setting times:
Try 1/2 hour ON in morning and 1/2 hour ON in evening. Warm water will stay in pipe for a while.

Recirculation system with timer costs $10-17 per year to operate, assuming timer runs 1 hour per day with electric prices at 10 cents per kilowatt hour. Operation cost is straight line ... so if timer runs 2 hours per day, cost is $20-34 per year at 10 cents per Kwh.

Water saved might equal 5 gallons per day, or 1825 gallons per year depending on usage. Average water wasted waiting for hot water is 1/2- 2/3 gallon depending on length of pipe. Set a bucket under spigot to test your home when circulation system is not ON.

Cost of water depends on local billing rate. The municipality saves purifying water, pumping water to your home, and finally pumping and processing sewage drainwater.

If you are on a water well, the pump electricity from saving 2000 gallons a year is a dollar or two per year since water well generally consumes less than 1Kwh per day for ordinary house.

Lighting apparrently killed the timer but manually it will still operate. Is it repairable and at what cost?


There are no replacement timer modules.

Easiest solution might be to buy cheap plug-in timer, set power pack to override, then plug power pack into cheap timer.

Replacement Cost


For a pretty simple work it should cost something like 200 dollars. For a more complicated work it can get to around 500-600 dollar.
