Pool timer

I have a t-104 Intermatic timer. It has A 1234 connection terminals with the load on the 2 & 4 terminals. The line are 1& 3 with 2 white wires from factory under the hubs. One thing which I am confused by is the old installation had a short white wire going from the A terminal to the grounding bar in the box. I put this back in the same way connected the load from the breaker on the 2 & 4 terminals and line on the 1-3 terminals on the timer with the white wires from timer. Turned back on power and motor works fine but timer does not run. Any ideas???

A terminal is not used, unless it is a 277 volt application, which you do not have .
Make ssure that line from breaker is on term 1 & 3, than load to term 2& 4.

Pool timer

Assuming you changed out the timer becuase it was not working. The mechancial timer is what usually goes bad, and you can buy just that and swap it into - no wiring, no mounting, etc. Cheaper and easier than changing the whole unit.
