Timer not advancing

I have just installed an Intermatic T104 timer to my pool pump, however the timer is not advancing. Could I have damaged it by not wiring it correctly the first time, or am I missing something. The manual which came with the timer is of no help.

My only guess is that you didn't connect it correctly. How did you connect it?

Way too little info. What model number? 120V or 240v? How did you wire it wrong. Is the pump 120v or 240v. If 240 v do you have a neutral? Does the timer have a 120v or 240v motor?

Are these the instructions that are of no help?

With this type of Intermatic timer you should have a true 240 volt supply comming in the timer and the line side { incomming } should land on #1 and #3 screw it is very clear marked if that the case you done it right then you will need to get a voltmeter to verify that you got legit 240 volts there.

{ slighty off topic but it is related to this situation some case someone may end up put in wrong timer motor or if you have GE twinner breakers you may have them landed on wrong spot }

Merci,Marc

Just in case the OP ever comes back, which seems unlikely since he hasn't visited this web site since the minute he posted his question, another reader solved this problem:

Thanks John for the head up with the info I almost forgot about backward connections on some Intermatic timers.

Merci,Marc
