Pool Timer not working

I installed this pool timer to replace the previous one that broke and can't get the dial to work. I can manually turn it on and off, but the timer is not turning at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome to the forums!

Your picture is great for context, but it doesn't provide the information we need to help you. A new picture showing the connections on the timer, with their designations, and also shows where each wire connected to it is going, would be helpful.

What's behind that cover at the upper left?

I don't see a neutral connected to the timer. Is the new timers clock 240 volts? If a 240 volt clock are you sure you have both hots connected to the Line side What voltage do you get when measuring between the two Line terminals?

Hard to tell from picture but it looks like all those breakers are being fed with 12 gauge wire?
