20 Most Recent Woods Outdoor Photoelectric 24 Hour Mechanical Timer (2001) Questions & Answers


1) Put black tape over photoelectric eye on timer.
Photo-eye is small round eyeball that bulges out.
See of lights stay on.

2) Turn timer away from source of light so photoelectric eye does not pick up feedback from lights.

It sounds like photo eye is receiving enough light that it turns off, 'thinking' it's dawn.
And then when lights are off, photo eye 'thinks' it's dark again, so lights come back on.

Let me know if this is the answer, because it's Christmas season, and folks have been asking about blinking outdoor timers. And then you're en-route to become fixya expert and boost your GNP by 3 cents an answer.

Some timers let you select hours of operation once timer turns ON at dusk.
Each timer is slightly different, depending on brand, type, and if timer is digital or mechanical.

My files do not show Woods 13360.
I am very interesting to identify your timer.
If you have outdoor timer, then timer photoeye can be getting feedback from surrounding lights.
If you have indoor hardwire timer, then white and red wires are probably connected incorrectly.

1) Open following link to identify timer and download manual, and then add a comment and say which timer resembles your timer. From there I can add a comment with possible solution.

2) Add a comment with photograph of your timer so I can identify timer and add possible solution.

4) Add a comment with your experience so others with same-similar problem can benefit.

I think this switch is set to go on at dark, then you can set how many hours after it goes on you want it go off. If you want the device to go on at dark and run for 2 hours, you stop at 2.

Paragon 4004-71 is 240Volt timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#Paragon4000

1) If your trippers are worn down, the timer will not turn on and off
Google search for X2772 trippers.
2) If your timer dial is not rotating, then timer clock motor is bad.

3) According to e-mail I received from Paragon Nov 2010, Paragon is no longer making timers and parts, except for their line of defrost timers.
4004-71 is not a defrost timer, so it is no longer being made according to Paragon representative.

4) To change timer brands: Intermatic cross reference shows Paragon 4004-71 can be replaced with Intermatic T-104 timer.
Intermatic cross reference link:
http://www.intermatic.com/customer%20service/competitive%20cross%20reference.aspx
Lowes and Grainger and many other outlet sell T-104 240V timer.

5) How to wire T-104
