T10604R wiring for 2 speed pump

For controlling 2-speed pool pump with minimum cost and long-term reliability. Replacement parts are available and installed DIY with screwdriver.
240 volts supply voltage is connected to Terminals 1 and 2 on T104 timer on right side.
Both timers have a clock motor that rotates the yellow dial once per day. The dial can hold up to 12 sets of trippers. Typically, the swimming pool timer has 2 sets of trippers for 2 OFF and 2 ON each day. Both clock motors are connected to terminals 1 and 2 on the T104 timer.

The way it works: T104 timer controls the on-off function for the pump. When T104 turns on, power is sent to T106 timer. T106 timer has NO and NC terminals. One set of terminals or the other set of terminals is ON at all times. When power arrives from T104, the power is sent to either low or high speed on the pool pump. Trippers on the dial of the T106 timer control when the pump is high speed or low speed. When power arrives at the filter pump from T106, the circuit is completed through terminal 4 on T104.

Troubleshoot T10604R
-Flip circuit breaker fully off and then back on.
-Check that both clock motors are connected to terminals 1 and 2 on the T104 timer.
-Observe if both clock dials are rotating 1 revolution per day. If dials are not rotating, then clock motor is bad, unit is not getting voltage, or is getting incorrect voltage.
-Convert timer to either 120 Volt or 240 volt by changing clock motor

120 volt clock motor for T10101R

-Check if each clock dial has ON and OFF trippers fastened to yellow dial.
-Move both override levers to ON position and pump should turn ON. If pump worked previously and doesn't work with both overrides in ON position, then check for 240 volt actoss terminals 1 and 2 on T104.
-If pump turns ON when overrides are in ON position, but pump does not turn ON when timers operate normally, then replace trippers.
-Observe if the trippers push the override lever back and forth between ON position and OFF position. If the dial rotates tripper past the override lever, and override lever does not change position, then most likely problem is worn trippers need to be replaced.

-If the trippers are sliding past the override lever, and new trippers do not solve problem, then replace timer module.

- Undersized wire and breaker can cause malfunctions.
- Check that motor load is working correctly. Look at rating plate on motor for voltage and amperage requirements.
- Convert control center timers to either 120 Volt or 240 volt by changing clock motor

240 volt clock motor for T104 or T106
120 volt clock motor for T104 or T106

-If the above steps check OK, then check terminal connections and wires. Max 2 wires under a terminals. Do not use stranded wire. Clean corroded wires with sandpaper, or use white vinegar to help dissolve build-up on terminals. Tighten screws very tight against copper wire. Use only copper wire.

10 gauge or 12 gauge?
10 gauge is larger/ for 30 amp breaker. 12 gauge is smaller/ for 20 amp breaker
10 gauge wire can have black-white or black-red
12 gauge will have black and white wires

Buy short pieces 10 and 12 gauge wire at local box store
Compare with your wire.
