my tork 1101 timer will not trip on. It trips off ok. Manual override works fine, trip pins fine. When I manually rotate the dial it trips off fine, i hear and feel it click when the on pin pass, but the timer does not turn on. What to do?
Posted by lden58 on
as per geno,
Tork T1101 has 120 Volt clock motor and is generally used for 120Volt loads but can be wired other ways to handle 240Volt circuits.
Here are basic wiring instructions for 120Volt.
1) Black Hot wire from breaker connects to both terminal 1 and terminal L.
There is usually a brass connector plate between these two terminals. If that plate is present, then connect Hot wire to one terminal or the other.
2) White Neutral wire from breaker box connects to terminal X.
3) Black wire going to Load (light, fan, motor) connects to terminal 2
4) White neutral wire going to Load connects to terminal X along with other neutral wire.
That's the wiring.
To operate timer:
1) Set current time: rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with the word TIME that is located to lower right of dial at about 5 o'clock position.
2) Put on-off trippers on outer edge of dial at times you want timer to turn on and off.
The trippers are marked ON and OFF.
3) The ON tripper rotates around on the dial until it encounters a lever, and then it pushes the lever.
The lever clicks one direction for ON tripper, and then OFF tripper pushes lever other direction.
The lever opens and closes electrical contacts which turns the Load on-and-off.

NEED INSTRUCTION OR MANUAL
Posted by Anonymous... on
I don't have an instruction manual but there's not much to know. Set the on/off times by depressing the white and grey tabs just above the hour notation for the times you want. If the tabs are up then the power is off. If they are pressed in then power's on. Plug it in, turn the dial to the current time and attach a device using less than 500 watts and you're good to go. There is a # to the helpdesk 800-562-5625

The Intermatic face plate seems bigger than the cover plate. Does the knob come off in order to only remove the face place? I want to paint the wall behind it.

That knob should just pull straight off. Check to make sure there isn't a tiny set screw on the side, but otherwise you can pull it off and remove the cover plate.

My Intermatic T104P3 timer will not turn the pump on. The manual switch works and it does turn off, as set.
Posted by stephenhlo... on
1) Manual switch is working, and that says electricity, circuit breaker, wiring, and pump are good.
If timer dial is rotating and keeping good time, then order new 156T1978A trippers.
If dial is not rotating, then order 240Volt WG1573 clock motor.
2) Open following links for troubleshoot walk-thru and replacement parts list.
3) Take a moment and rate answer:

My Intermatic pool timer is not working. It is not keeping time. The timer wheel does not advance at all, so, the pool pump runs 24 hours. I can switch the pool timer on and off manually. I replaced the entire mechanism and the new timer does the same thing. It doesn't run either!

I need the instruction manual for Model # R8806R101C.
Posted by margie... on
R8806R101C manual is not shown on Intermatic, even among discontinued models.
But product is still for sale.
R8806P manual is available:
I suspect manual is very similar since it's a mechanical time piece. If not, then add a comment with specifics and I will help.

I thought my old timer was bad, the clock won't run, I have to manually turn the pump on & off, so I replaced the clock, and it does the same, I set the current time and come back in 1 hour, it stay at the same time, what did I do wrong? Please help. Thank you.

Check your wiring, it sounds like it's not right. The clock needs 120 volts to run.

Need instructions on how to program the timer for christmas light display. Do not want to hook to computer - only want to set lights in a timed sequence.
Posted by smile62 on
Do you have the screw on trip pieces? They look like little arrows with a thumb screw on them. Some of them should say On, some Off Place the on trips over the time you want the lights to com on vice versa for off. To set the time pull out on the yellow time wheel and rotate until the arrow that is pointing down is over the current time. I hope this helps.

I have an Intermatic timer Model HB71R and I've lost the instructions. Could you please send them to me? please send to the following email

Slide the middle left switch to TIME SET. Use the DAY, HOUR and MINUTE buttons to set the current day and time.
Slide the middle left switch to PROG.
When you set the switch to PROG, the number on the right on the LCD display will be a 1, and it will say ON above it. Adjust the DAY, HOUR and TIME for when you want your first program to turn on. Then press the bottom left EVENT button to proceed to set the OFF time for program 1. Adjust the DAY, HOUR and TIME for when you want your first program to turn off.
Press the bottom left EVENT button to move on to your 2nd event, and set the ON time. Again, press the bottom left button to move on to your second event OFF time. Continue in this way until you have programmed up to six different ON/OFF events. When you have programmed as many events as you need, slide the middle left switch to RUN at the center position.
To use the timer now, slide the upper left switch to AUTO at the middle position. The upper left switch, when moved to the right hand AUTO RAND position, will run the programs, but randomly start and stop them within a half hour of their programmed settings.
To use the timer manually, slide the upper left switch fully to the left to MAN, and press the bottom left switch to cycle between ON and OFF.
