Here are electric motor links that might help.
Or not.

You have to test the windings with multimeter to identify start winding, vrs run winding.
Both windings receive power at same time.
The start winding is like first gear on a car. It starts the motor rotation.
The run winding brings motor up to rated speed.

Sometimes categories at Fixya are muddied, and people do not say which product they have, or give UL number instead of product number, and sometimes fixya questions are truncated onscreen ... so person answering question thinks the product is a gasoline powered bobcat, instead of hybrid car, or 120Volt single-phase electric motor.

If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at

What is a comintator

According to wikipedia. a commutator is the moving part of a rotary electrical switch in certain types of electric motors and electrical generators that periodically reverses the current in a DC motor. It's part of what makes the motor run.

A commentator HOWEVER, is a person who comments or expresses an opinion on a subject.

I installed a new Intermatic timer, model # T8805P101C, it works manually but the wheel doesn't turn to automatic set timings

If the dial does not rotate but manual override works, then the timer is wired incorrectly or polarity of line is reversed or you are connecting to 240Volt line instead of 120V.
1) You have wires from breaker box reversed with wires that goes to sprinkler solenoid. Switch black wires and see if that corrects problem.
2) Check that breaker supplying voltage is 120Volt.
3) Test if black wire from breaker tests 120V to ground wire, and test that white wire from breaker tests 0 volts to ground.

We install the timer and it does not work automatically. We can switch it on only manually

You posted under T103 Intermatic 120V timer.

Sounds like you wired the timer wrong:
Timer has 120V clock motor and requires Hot from breaker on terminal 1, and Neutral from breaker on terminal A. This will power clock motor.
If you have any of the wires reversed, timer will do what you describe.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

WH40 water heater timer: Does black wire from service box go to terminal #1 and black wire to water heater to terminal #2? Does neutral (white) from service box go to terminal #3 and neutral (white) to...

WH40 is 240Volt timer.
WH40 will not work with 120V circuit.

See WH40 wiring illustration at following link:

There are two hot wires in 240V circuit because every circuit requires two wires to complete the circuit.
Hot wires from breaker connect to terminal 1 and 3.
Notice that small white wires are also connected to terminals 1 and 3.
Small white wires power clock motor located on back of mechanism, so this says power from breaker box must arrive on terminals 1 and 3. This insures that clock motor runs continuously.
If clock motor only runs when manual override switch is clicked ON, then your Hot and Load wires are reversed.

Bare ground wire connects to green ground screw.
Wires going to Load (water heater) connect to terminals 2 and 4.

FYI: Terminal A is not used unless circuit also has a Neutral wire,
See basic water heater circuit Diagram #2:

Terminal A is also used if you want to convert WH40 to 120V timer by replacing 240V clock with 120V clock.

Hilti TE 17 Rotary Hammer repair switch fix The wirei loose how to reatach to motor?

If you are talking about the wire going from the switch to the stator it difficult to get to. You have to remove the motor end cap, cooling fan and handle holding the switch. this will get you to the brush holders. These can be brittle so you need to be carefull. Turn the motor over and tap the end of the armature on concrete checking the brush holders every couple of taps to see if they are coming out of the motor housing. after they clear they will just come out. If you havn't done so already remove the wires going to the brush holders. Your stator will simply slide out after your brush holder comes out. This will give you access to the wires to repair.

Hope this helps.

Hilti Hammer Drill 76p atc wont spin, has flashing led

Sounds like it needs new brushes. Schematics can be found on tech support - rotary hammers/ combi. Look up model number. Some of the older stuff is obsolete. Should find info there.Please rate me

Window Fan switch bad

Steve, Your fan model is HV-18-WR; I have 2 with the same problem. I can't find a source for DYE-3606 switches either. Here is one source for rotary switches; one might be suitable: I can draw a diagram of how the existing switch is connected, but I don't know how that would translate to a replacement switch.
