Intermatic Timer
 
Will the Intermatic T103 timer control lights on 2 seperate circuits?

Yes...I have 4 installed at my house that are controlling 8 20a circuits

Scuba Dave, you're the man. Thanks again.

When the motor dies on any Intermatic mechanical timer they can be replaced. The quickest source is a local Electrical supply house (not a big box store) or a good hardware.like B&B in Culver City.

How cost effective is it to replace the motor? Unfortunately on a lot of things for the 2 bucks you save it doesn't seem to be worth the hassle. :( Some stuff is more expensive to repair than replace.

The timers are usally around $40-45
I picked up a few for $7

So if picking up a timer (and inexpensive) gets it working well worth the cost
Replacement is fairly easy
The guts come out for easy access

BK is right, Those replacement clock motors seem to be overpriced. The biggest advantage I see is that replacing the motor (the only part that normally wears out) is easier and a little cheaper most times than replacing the whole timer.
