20 Most Recent Intermatic ET171C8 Electronic Timer - Page 9 Questions & Answers


T104 and ET1725 are wired differently since ET series timers have dry switching terminals. Dry terminals receive no power when timer is energized. So ET series timers require jumper wire.
Here is crossover wiring:

ED811 is older analog timer for turning table lamps on-off.
Copy following link for setting analog timers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-toset-timers.html
If dial does not rotate once each 24 hours, then timer motor has gone bad, replace with new analog timer.

1) The door is not sold separately, but enclosures are sold separately, and timer can snap into new enclosure:

http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#T100

2) The identifying number 2T2501A does not match listed Intermatic timers or enclosures.

1) DT27 timer is same as Kichler 15559.
I don't think either product is still available unless another company such as Brinks has taken over the design.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#DT27

2) Change LR44 batteries
And then reset timer by depressing reset button.
Reprogram.
Check light bulb is operable, and lamp switch is ON. Move timer to different outlet.
Check circuit breaker.
Plug in different lamp.
If functionality is not restored, then buy another timer such as Intermatic DT620 with lifetime warranty (shows just above DT27.)

3) Many timers today do not require battery and have internal rechargeable battery instead.
Timer designs change because CFL and LED bulbs are inductive loads, while many older timers were rated only for resistive loads such as incandescent bulbs.

You need 2 ON trippers and 2 OFF trippers.
Part number 156T1976A sold at WW Grainger etc.

1) Copy following links for WH40 little grey box Intermatic timer operation and resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/How-to-operate-and-set-T104-timer.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T104

2) WH40 timer is identical to T104, same replacement parts, same operation, same wiring options, except the grey box timer has override lever that sticks out of box. Both WH40 and T104 have override levers, the WH40 override can be moved without opening box door.
This allows you to use the WH40 as ordinary on-off switch if the trippers are removed from dial.

1) Probably not if the timer looks identical and is approximately the same weight, and not a lightweight knock-off product.
Which doesn't make sense why a chinese company would knock off a timer that doesn't sell in giant quantities, and there are so many other similar timers on the market from Utilitec, Woods, GE, Tork, etc.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Countdown-timer-horsepower-ratings.html#FD
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/038_FD-series-sell-sheet-with-wiring.pdf

2) The Intermatic brand FD and FF series timers have phillips-head screw terminals for connecting wire, and wire enters on the side.

3) All spring-wound timers are rated heavy-duty for 1HP at 120Volt and 2 HP at 240Volt. Set times are approximate. Timer has 1 year limited warranty against defects in manufacture and will last many years as long as amp-rating is not overloaded.

4) Call Intermatic customer service

885L is a UL number and not Intermatic model number.
You probably have mechanical dial-type timer with red and turquoise trippers.
Likely you have one of the consumer outdoor timers showing on following page:
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/consumer%20outdoor%20timers/electromechanical%20timers.aspx

Dials and knobs are not available for Intermatic outdoor timers.
You can buy trippers, and some box-type models have separate clock motors
