Hi. Thanks for posting your question on JustAnswer...
Do you have the model# XXXXX your timer?
Dayton model 2E022
Hmmm... That model isn't listed. Any other part#'s?
Found it... just a moment.
Ok... your "line" black connects to the line 1
"line" white and "load" white connect to clock.
the back of the unit says intermatic model #wg-430-3 / 60c, which I'm guessing has to do with
And then "load" black connects to "load" 1
And your "line" is the wire coming from the breaker. "Load" is the wire going to the pump.
Looks like you're having a hard time using the chat. I'll close it for now...
...and we can continue via Q&A if need to ask any follow-up questions.
In this case, would "load" black actually be "load" blue, as there is no black wire going
to the pool pump motor, only blue, green, and white? Also, there are 2 small white wires that came already attached to the unit. Ones goes from the the "clock" terminal to the one side of the clock mechanism and the other one goes from the clock mechanism to
the terminal labeled "line 1" if that makes a difference...
I've got it all hooked up and its running. I have set it so that it should turn itself off in the next 5 minutes or so. If it does, I'll accept your answer and we're good to go!
Thanks for the help...
I wired everything up as you told me I should, and the pool pump works great, but the timer that turns the unit off/on doesn't seem to be working. I have removed the clock mechanism from the timer unit and was wondering if there is a way to test the clock to see if that's the problem. The timer unit has 2 white wires coming out of it. Can I hook it
up directly to, let's say a wall outlet using an old lamp cord with a plug and if the gears move, I know the timer is working. If the gears don't move, maybe the clock mechanism is burned out and I need to replace it and not the whole timer unit. Either way, I will pay you for your time and effort in this matter.
