Place green tripper at ON time & red tripper at OFF time. Twist timer dial one or more times until current time of day is aligned on pointer. When twisting timer, the trippers should actuate the manual knob on and off each time you make a full turn. Make sure trippers are fully inserted so that they engage the "catch" of the override knob - if not they will not cycle power to the output.

T104 cannot be easily set up to handle 2-speed motors
You need T106 timer with NO NC terminals.

Or you can use the T104 to control relay with NO NC terminals... relay would need 240 Volt coil. Problem is most relays with NO NC terminals are 120 Volt coil or rated too low amperage for motor.

Or move T104 clock motor wires to A and 1... connect 240Volt power to A and 1... then terminals 3-4 are dry and can be used to control any voltage relay coil (120 Volt for example).
When T104 is ON, then relay uses NC terminals to send power to low speed. When T104 is OFF, then relay uses NO terminals to send power to high speed.
Buying T106 timer is probably cheaper and simpler.

DANGER WILL ROBINSON!

Transformers get hot when the load side sees a short (0 ohms) or very little resistance. V = I R or I = V / R. The voltage is a constant. As the resistance approaches 0, the current draw soars heating up both windings in the transformer.

Your transformer has an over temp sensor that shuts down the supply side before the transformer bursts into flames.

Find the short or replace the device. YESTERDAY!
