My parafon 4001-0 is coming on at the wrong time..i have one set of trippers and they are correctly, and now have turned off the breaker to shut the lgihts off. I don't know what to do

Is the dial rotating and keeping good time?
Are the X2772 trippers worn down?
Does the manual override lever turn load on-off.

You can buy replacement trippers online.
Otherwise if the clock dial is slow, then clock motor is bad, and you need to replace timer.

Replace the 4001-1 120Volt timer with Intermatic T101 timer.
Crossover wiring is as follows.
Paragon terminal 1 => Intermatic 1
Paragon 2 => Intermatic 2
Paragon 3 => Intermatic A
Intermatic timers are easily repairable and adaptable for various voltages and different countries by changing clock motors

Refrigerator and freezer not getting cold enough

Yes the defrost timer should come on by itself and if it does not just turn the timer again clockwise and replace timer because this will cause the refrigerator to not defrost. I don't have the amount of time off for yours but some timers are off for up to 30 minutes three times a day.When looking at the rear wall of freezer do you see frost build up? The ice maker will stop making ice most times above 5 degrees inside freezer. Let me know Thanks Sea Breeze
The defrost timer for your model is=> 68233-3 Defrost Timer

I have the 59017 Mechanical. I set the pins and turned on in timer mode. It comes on at specified time, goes off after specified time, but then does not come on again the next night.

I don't have repair for defective timer:
If Load and Line wires are reversed, that could explain problem. Reverse timer red and timer black wires. Symptom of this problem: the clock dial stops rotating after tripper pin.

Troubleshoot run-through:
1) Use fingers and manually rotate timer dial several times and watch if Load turns ON-and-OFF
This will tell you if load is operational, and pins are set correctly.
2) Set slide switch to Timer.
3) Make sure timer is wired correctly. This timer needs neutral wire to operate clock motor. Open following link to see illustration and read about wiring. Line and load wires must be correct.
4) Check that wire nuts are attached very tight and there are no loose wires.

The timer has started stopping at the time it should switch on, as though it is stuck. It works fine if I turn it on manually and turns off at scheduled time. I am thinking it might be the timer tripper...

You can buy trippers, but problem is the timer clock motor has gone bad.
Clock modules are not sold separately.

Maybe easiest to buy cheap plug-in timer, set power pack override to ON, then plug power pack into cheap timer.

4003-0s clock wont count does turn to show time or swicth on lights

1) If timer dial is not rotating, then the clock motor has gone bad.
New paragon clock motors are not sold anywhere I know about.

2) If dial rotates on time, but trippers don't work, then buy new X2772 trippers.

3) Buy new 120Volt 4003-00 timer at Southside for $86:

4) BuildingHVAC sells 4003-00 timer for $56.00

Lights come on but don't stay on even though the tabs are set for it to stay on say from 4-12 it will go off at 7:30. Someone got thier hands on this before i did---could the tabs have been broken if...

GM40 is commercial-grade electronic time piece with FM1 analog timer dial.
I bought a used GM40 once and the electronics were bad, so if this is a used timer, it might not function as expected.

I don't think the tabs/pins are broken. FM1 timer module is heavy duty.
Turning the dial clockwise does not damage timer. That's how you set current time and test timer.
Rotating dial counterclockwise is not possible without breaking the timer.

FM1 analog timer module can be replaced if timer stopped working.

If certain pins/tabs are broken, you might be able to work around problem by offsetting current time by 6 hours or 12 hours. Or you can move wires from NO to NC terminals and see if the relays are causing a problem.

To set FM1 timer, the pins are pushed outward or inward.
For example to turn on Load for 1 hour, then 4 consecutive pins are moved.
To turn on Load for 3 hours, then 12 consecutive pins are moved.
To test if pins need to be inward or outward, set some pins and then manually rotate timer dial clockwise and watch when the Load turns on-off.
