Copy following link to identify timer:

Paragon 4000 series uses X2772 tripper
Paragon is no longer making timers except for defrost times.
There is a new line of timers coming from China that looks identical to Paragon 4000, and uses same tripper. As a result this timer design and trippers could be around for years to come.

Replacement timer is Intermatic T104R 240Volt indoor outdoor enclosure, with replacement parts widely available

1) If timer dial is not rotating, then the clock motor has gone bad.
New paragon clock motors are not sold anywhere I know about.

2) If dial rotates on time, but trippers don't work, then buy new X2772 trippers.

3) Buy new 120Volt 4003-00 timer at Southside for $86:

4) BuildingHVAC sells 4003-00 timer for $56.00

Paragon no longer makes timers or parts, except defrost timers.
Typically, defrost timers are not used for pools.
Open following link to possibly identify timer and tripper part number.

If you want a new timer for pools, Intermatic makes the T101 120Volt and T104 240Volt:

If you want T100 series timer with fireman's switch that turns off heater 10 minutes before turning off pump:

If you have energy-saving 2-speed pool pump, and thermostat and pool light, then buy P1353 digital timer with enclosure. Enclosure and timer sold together as P1353ME.
P1353 is not easy to wire or program for novice, so you can add a comment or repost question on fixya and I will catch it.

1) You posted under paragon 7008-00 timer.
It is not necessary to know voltage of motor to order tripper

2) Model number of timer is usually located on inside door panel

3) Paragon is no longer making timers or parts.
Open following link to identify timer for sure:

4) Following link from Paragon gives links for folks who might still sell parts:
Expect some suppliers to overcharge for parts.
I've seen paragon trippers selling for $60.

5) It might be easier to buy another time clock.
Refer to Intermatic Competitive cross reference chart.
For example replacement for 7008-20 is Intermatic T7802B which is a 7-day, 40 amp 240V timer.

6) You are working for your church, probably as a volunteer.
I also volunteer several places in my community.
I have extensive files on timers and can help you choose and install a new timer if I know the model number.
Just add a comment to this post and I will answer if needed.

Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

If I understand you correctly, these are the movable / adjustable parts that are placed and secured at the time of day an "on" and "off" operation is to be performed. Most brands of timers use two similar yet different types of trippers. One type performs an "on" function and another performs the "off" functions. They may be color coded or have some other distinguishing mark to differentiate between the two function types. The AMF Paragon 7008-00 uses black and silver to indicated off and on, respectively.

There are several terms used for these parts; "trippers" or "dogs" are the most common - but there are others. Some people even combine the two above to something like "trip dogs" too. Of course, timer pins also convey the part that you're speaking of just as well.

A larger picture with the black and silver trippers installed can be seen easily below:

Intermatic clock motors are everywhere, but Paragon and Tork clock motors are a mystery.
Shows manuals and resources

According to Paragon accessory chart:
7000 series 240V clock motor M3193-71
7000 series 120V clock motor M3099-00

7008-00 is listed as 120V clock motor

I cannot find M3099 120V clock motor on internet
Now Paragon has contact-us page for customer service:

I will also contact Paragon, and post results here if Paragon responds.

There are a lot of timers out there.
Add a comment with brand and model number to give us a shot at finding the information.

You posted under paragon 7008-00 timer
7008 is 120V timer with 120V clock motor
Power lines connect to Terminals A and B

Going through Paragon timers, I don't see terminals M and T

Looking at Tork timers, I dont see terminals M and T:

Looking at GE timers, I don't see M and T

Woods timers, Sylavania timers don't have M and T

Intermatic makes more timers than I can go through in one night, but I don't recall M and T terminals.
