look around where the thermostat is . do you see a 1/2 inch hole where there's a small button where a flat screwdriver can turn it then that's the defrost control. remove the upper panel and you should have access to the control. Good Luck

SOURCE: Can't figure out how to set Intermatic timer 111c up to nightlight

Hello. I can help you with this times.

Step one - insert the pins at the times you want the night light to come on and go off. The green pins will turn on the night light and the red pins will turn it off. If you just want one on time and one off time just use one pin of each color.

After you have the pins inserted, set the correct time on the timer and plug it into an outlet that is always on [not one that is controlled by a wall switch].

The override switch will turn the device off if it is on, but just one time. As the next time it turns on it will once again be controlled by the times.

If ou want the night light to come on and off in the evening and again in the morninng, use two green pins and two red pins. Push in a green pin at each time where you want the night light to come on and push in a red pin at each time you want it to go off.

Get back if you need additional clarification.

Most makers recommend regular servicing, so perhaps a visit to the makers service center would solve the problem.

The charges for this are indicated on their web site (tissot.ch). Go to the bottom of the page and their is a link marked "repairs". Click on this to see their charges. Alternatively you could contact their service centers to confirm servicing charges are the same as the repairs

Timer has non-replaceable capacitor battery for 15 minute carryover during power outage.
Timer can be affected by radio and TV receivers. Unplug those devices and check if function is restored.
Reset timer and program again.
If timer function is not restored after reset, then buy new timer.
Timer has 1-year limited warranty, and is rated for incandescent only, up to 150Watts.

Pool pump starts randomly (as if there is a short) even when it is not set to start and stop. Otherwise works fine, not sure if I need to replace unit or dissassemble and clean or ????? T21004R


Sounds like 240Volt WG1573 clock motor has gone bad and needs replacement. But more checking is needed.

You posted under T2100-4R which is 60 amp Intermatic control panel with a single T104M 240Volt timer mechanism.
All Intermatic timer mechanisms can fit into same control center, so you can possibly have different timer mechanism inserted into the T2100-4R control center.
The control center can have up to 4 circuit breakers.
Instruction manual shows that timer can also have fireman's switch that is wired to pool heater and causes pool heater to turn off 20 minutes before pool pump turns off.
http://www.poolandspacontrols.com/products/mechanical%20controls/60%20amp%20pool%20and%20spa%20control%20panels.aspx

(1) First thing: If you have T104 mechanism, do a troubleshoot run-down to see if trippers, clock motor, or wiring are suspect:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-Intermatic-timer.html

(2) Next would be to check the circuit breakers for loose wires, burned connections, or the smell of burning or crackling sound that says breaker is loose on the busbar.

(3) Check for loose wiring on T104 and test circuit:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html
(a) Push the manual override lever to OFF position and test across terminals 1 and 2 and then across terminals 3 and 4 to make sure timer is turning off power to pump. Both tests should show 0 volts.
(b) Push manual override lever to to ON position and repeat test above. Both tests should show 240 volts.
If the test fails, then buy new T104M timer mechanism.

(4) If the T104 timer is turning off both lines in the 240Volt circuit, then pump cannot turn on since neither wire is Hot.
However if your T104 timer is actually a T101 timer or if timer has different wiring, where timer is turning off only 1 leg and not both legs of 240Volt circuit, then pump has one hot wire available and a short to ground could cause pump to turn on unexpectedly.

Intermatic T101 timer


T101 timer is strictly 120Volt timer
Wiring and manual show on following link
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

See another image of wiring:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T-101-control-120V-Load-450.jpg

Amazon sells T101:
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-T101-Hour-Dial-Timer/dp/B00002N5FN

If timer is not functioning, add a comment.

Grainger sells 125V clock motor and tripper for T100 series timers.
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/timer-accessories/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hi
If manual override does not turn Load ON, and the lever snaps crisp and clean, then check electric circuit. Check if load is operable.
If override does not snap crisp and clean, then timer may be worn out.
If dial does not rotate, replace clock motor.
If dial rotates but does not click override back and forth, then replace trippers.

How T101 works:
Lift and rotate dial until current time lines up with silver pointer
Clock motor rotates dial.
ON-OFF trippers attached outer edge of dial contact a lever.
ON tripper pushes lever one direction.
Off tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
Lever opens and closes electrical contacts.
Lever also pushes manual override lever back and forth with audible click.

I have a Woods TM1710 outdoor timer and the instructions are not very clear. First, what is the manual overide switch. Second, what are all the on/off positions on the dial for. Third, which part of the...


Woods timers and manuals
Woods TM1710 shows at page bottom, and does not have online manual that I can find
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html

TH1710 is a promotional timer for outdoor use.
TD series and TM series timers are evidently sold at a price point, and not made with same features as more expensive timers.

That being said, TM1710 has a dial that rotates as time passes.
Poor image quality is hard to make out, but dial looks like 12 hour.
If this is true, then time programs repeat each 12 hours.
Set timer and the lights turn on-off during am hours, and then cycle repeats for pm hours.
Kinda silly to make 12-hour outdoor repeat timer since you want outdoor lights ON during pm but not am. But cheap prices sway we shoppers who later discover a saw horse that is supposed to balance on 2 legs.

To set ON-OFF times, there are segments located around outer edge of dial.
Pull segments up or leave them pushed down to set ON-OFF.
Most timers are OFF during hours when segments are pulled up, and ON when segments down, but this timer may be opposite.

Manual override is button or switch that overrides timer functions and turns light ON full time.
Again poor image quality makes it impossible to see manual override, but it looks like manual override is white button to lower right of dial.
If that button is manual override, then it appears to rotate.
Usually you set override one direction to override, and other direction for timer to operate

Not turning itself on and off. tigger are set clock is running. light are on 24 hours. model no T101 diana or shannon


1) The on-off tripper pins might be worn out. Buy new pins
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Timer-Tripper-2E054?Pid=search

Do you need new pins?
2) The manual override will click on and off with timer. Watch if manual lever is moving to OFF when timer is off ... and moving to ON when timer is on.

3) Timer might be worn out. Click manual override lever back and forth.

Is manual override loose? Or does it click crisp ON and OFF? This test would indicate general wear on timer. If manual override is loose or broken, the tripper pins may pass right over without tripping lever.

4) If manual override clicks on and off with timer, and lights stay on, then there might be a short between timer and lights.

Test for short to ground. Turn off power. Inside timer box, disconnect ground wire going to light. Do not disconnect ground wire unless power is off. Turn power back on. If lights are off, then the wire going to light is bad, or a light fixture is bad.

Caution. If there is a short, do NOT touch light fixture when power is on.

How long does a cranium timer last?


Crainium games include an hour-glass timer that takes the equivalent of 60 seconds to empty.

Can not shut entire timer off.


To disconnect a box timer so it does not run or control the circuit, then remove wires from terminals.
If you simply want to override timer now and then, then remove trippers from timer dial. Then use manual override switch to set timer ON or OFF.
If you remove wires from terminals, and want circuit to operate, then as a general rule, you connect black wires together and connect white wire together. However you did not specify which timer you have and timers and circuits vary, so it would be wise to test the wires.
