    Intermatic Timer losing time

    Just getting moved into the new house and discovered that the timer for the booster has gone kaput. Is there more than one flavor of Intermatic timer or am I good with ordering the T104M?

    Thanks!

    There are a few different versions depending on the voltage and use.

    If the old one was the T104 (@ 230V), then that is right part number to just replace the mechanism (assuming you are keeping the same enclosure).

    Depending on what is wrong with it, you can often replace just the timer motor and save money.

    Re: Intermatic Timer losing time

    OK headed to the house shortly... What do I need to look at when I get there to determine part number ... or timer mechanism? I would LOVE to replace just the timer mechanism.

    As always you guys rock with the responses. Hopefully one day soon I will be able to contribute instead of just consume.

    Cheers
    Chris

    Is the motor different than the mechanism? Maybe I have never see the motor part offered separately.

    AH, a quick Google does show just the motor ... just never saw them listed on the Intermatic website:

    Amazon lists the timer motors for $19 with shipping (for now anyway). You just need to make sure you get the correct operating voltage.
