How do I wire a Woods 59402 timer 240v input running two 120v outlets

Woods 59402 timer wires identical to Intermatic GM40, with same ratings and dip-switch settings.

Here is specific wiring diagram per your request, showing 240Volt input controlling two 120Volt outlets.

Keep in mind that with 240Volt, both hot wires coming from breaker box carry 120Volt each, with 240Volt potential across both hot leads.
Each 120Volt Hot from breaker box, also carries 120Volt potential to Neutral or ground wire.
So the 240Volt wires from breaker box can supply the Hot for a 240Volt circuit, but the circuit must also have a neutral wire to complete 120Volt circuit.

Be mindful that timer is not 2-channel, so both outlets are controlled by same timing schedule.
If you want two different schedules for the outlets, then buy a 2-channel timer like Intermatic ET1125. Wiring for ET series remains similar to illustration link above.

How connect a new intermatic t104r 120v

T104 timer is 240Volts.
Not 120Volt
You can convert timer into 120V by changing clock motor from WG1573 to WG1570. This action will convert the T104 into T103.

The T104 timer can be wired many different ways:
Copy following link for illustrations showing both T104 and T103 wiring

Add a comment with specifically what you are connecting to timer, and I will comment back with more detail as needed.

How can i install the transformer for intermatic timer t10004rt3

Intermatic phone number: 815-675-7076

T104RT3 has 120Volt 300 watt transformer with 12-13-14Volt output.

The timer mechanism is 240Volt T104M.

Since both 120Volt and 240Volt are needed, the wire coming from breaker box should have 2 Hots and a neutral, plus the ground wire.
So you need 12-3 with/ground wire or 10-3 with/ground wire.
See image of typical wires plus ratings:
See example image showing 2 hots and neutral and ground coming from breaker box:

The 2 hot wires come from a 240Volt circuit breaker.
The neutral comes from the neutral busbar, or can be accessed from tying into any white neutral on nearby 120Volt outlet.

How to wire timer:
Connect 240Volt hot wires to terminals 1 and 3 on timer. Connect 240Volt timed output to terminals 2 and 4 on timer.

How to wire transformer:
Connect 120Volt transformer two different ways. (a) white wire connects to neutral wire and black wire connects to terminal 1 on timer. With this wiring, the transformer is ON at all times. (b) white wire connects to neutral wire and black wire connects to terminal 2 on timer. With this wiring, the transformer will be ON when timer turns on.
Do not put both stranded wire and copper wire under same screw terminal. Instead connect transformer wire to solid copper wire using wire nut.

Im trying to change out my automatic sprikler timer, the new one is Intermatic model T8845PV. Its an old house I have two hot wires going in to the old timer, and I only see one spot for my hot wire in the...

Open following links for resources:

If you have 2 hot wires, then you have 240Volt circuit from breaker box.
T8845PV is 120Volt timer.
How to wire for 120Volt: Use one hot wire to connect to LINE terminal. Cap off other hot wire. Then connect bare ground wire to terminal marked NEUTRAL.
This is not code, but it will work until you have time to run 120Volt line from nearby 120Volt outlet.
Read about 120 and 240Volt circuits

T8845PV is 120Volt timer, made to control 24Volt sprinkler valve.
Inside the timer, there are two wiring terminals marked LINE and NEUTRAL
120Volt cable from circuit breaker has black hot wire and white neutral wire.
Connect black hot to terminal marked LINE
Connect white neutral to terminal marked NEUTRAL

The yellow wires are 24Volt output.
Yellow wires connect to sprinkler valve.
Do not connect 120Volt to yellow wires.
This timer does not have terminals for rain sensor:

I have a T104R timer and not sure how to wire it. I have 240v supply from breaker box, 2 black wires and both hot. Does it matter which wire goes to the#1 terminal and which one goes to #3 terminal....

Two hot wires from the panel go to "line" and two wires from motor go to "load". See the diagram on the inside of the door. You should consider running the "load" to a 220 wall switch and then to the motor so you can turn it off quickly if necessary without fooling with the timer.

After Six years the clock still works fine, just it gets stuck when is is time to turn the trippers on and off

The clock motor has gotten weak.

Google search for this product shows these trippers selling for 50-60$

3) Intermatic cross-reference chart shows T104R 240Volt raintight is replacement
I saw T104R at Lowes today for around 90$

Wiring of the 2-5-10-15 timer to a jucuzee bath tub it has three wires black blue green. Thanks. Terry.

First thing to consider is size of Load.
Leviton countdown-timer Load rating is 1800 Watt, 120Volt.
Look inside Jacuzzi at rating plate on motor.
Rating plate on motor should give Volts, Watts and Amps.
Formula Volts x Amps = Watts.
Sometimes motor shows VA which is Watts
Is Jacuzzi on 240Volt breaker or 120V breaker?
Leviton countdown timer is not for 240V load.

A) If 120Volt electric Load checks out, here's how to wire timer if 1 cable enter box.
Timer-black-wire connects to jacuzzi-black
Timer-white-wire connects to ground.
Timer-green connects to ground.
Timer-red connects to jacuzzi-blue.

B) Here's how to wire timer if 2 cables enter box.
120Volt cable coming from breaker box has black, white and bare copper wire.
Timer-black-wire connects to black-wire-from-breaker
Timer-white-wire connects to white-wire-from-breaker-box.
Timer-green and jacuzzi-ground connect to ground

Timer-red-wire connects to jacuzzi-black-wire.

Jacuzzi-blue-wire connects to white.
I am puzzled why this wire is blue if circuit is 120Volt.
