My timer only shows off. It won’t let me set any times. I thought it was the fuse, but that wasn’t it. This is about a hunter sprinkler timer.

For a small price, it's worth it to replace it with another Hunter PGP. Don't settle for cheaper products as the PGP is the best in the industry, bar none.

SOURCE: hunter sprinklers vs rainbow sprinklers

I work with both Hunter and Rainbird irrigation components. Both companies have good products. But, I prefer Hunter for the sprinkler heads and Rainbird for the controllers and valves.

4 station timer help


Copy following link to help identify timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#sprinkler
Most major brands are linked here, including manuals for each.
Some brands such as yardworks, etc, repackage other brands and have no online support or clear resolution for warranty claim.
Open link, then add a comment with brand and model and voltage so expert can access same manual.
Replace battery. Reset timer. Check if unit is getting power. Check if outlet has correct polarity. Are some basic troubleshoot steps.
Most timers have 1 year limited warranty, and timer that came with used house may no longer be functioning. Or the sprinkler hear has gone bad.
For replacement, I think Intermatic mechanical sprinkler timers are better value than digital timers, since the mechanicals have repair motors and trippers and can last 25 years.

Intermatic dial doesn't automatically switch sprinklers


1) Trippers can wear down. Transformer can go bad if model has 24Volt output. Relay can go bad.

http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#sprinkler

2) Add a comment Feb 2013 with model number, and include if this is new timer or older timer that worked before and stopped working.

Hunter pro C will not allow all zones to water.


The fact that you are getting no error message indicates that programming is not right, or there is electrical short between timer and sprinkler solenoid:

With all digital timers, it is important to clear memory before starting, and then double-check there are no conflicts in programming.
Page 22-23 of the manual has quick-check procedure for identifying shorts that would cause problems.
Check outlet with circuit analyzer to check for correct polarity and grounding.
Google search Hunter Pro C manual to download searchable pdf manual
Keep in mind also that digital timers are susceptible to line noise, and power surge. Simple power outage can disable digital timer. There are no replacement parts.
That's why I recommend good old fashion 14-day repeat-cycle mechanical sprinkler timer with fewer features, but replaceable parts.
For example T8845PV with 24Volt ac output

How to wire hunter rain clik rain sensor to r8816p101c


1) There are different rain clik model numbers shown in manual
Open 24 volt Rain clik manual:
http://www.hunterindustries.com/resources/pdfs/instructions/domestic/lit358w.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Hunter-rain-clik-instruction-manual.pdf

2) The rain sensor has two wires.
And two additional wires are needed to run from rain sensor to sprinkler timer. For example, buy thermostat wire from local hardware store if wire is not supplied.

3) The rain sensor has a terminal block where wires are connected. .
Open manual above to identify markings on your terminal block.
For example Figure 1 shows SRC model, and with this model number, the rain sensor wires connect to terminals RS and C, and then two wires going to timer connect to terminals RS and and 1.

4) R8816P101C is 208-240Volt 24-hour irrigation timer.
Timer has two separate terminals for attaching rain sensor.

5) Timer power connections have 4 terminals. Do not connect rain sensor to power terminals.
Connect wires from sensor to the two sensor terminals.

6) Timer slide-switch must be set to ON position for rain sensor operation.
Sensor sends continuous 24Volts to irrigation timer.
When it rains, the rain sensor stops sending 24Volts to timer. Timer responds by not turning on power to irrigation pump.
To by-pass rain sensor, move timer slide-switch to off position.

7) Open following link for Intermatic replacement parts:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#sprinkler

8) Take a moment and rate answer:
And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

I have 4 zones can run them manually; but they will not come on the automatic setting. Springs are strong; timer itself keeps accurate time. I did read inside the box about a "Silver Pin"...


If zones are not advancing, then 1) Clock motor is not rotating dial > replace clock motor, 2) on-off trippers are worn down > replace trippers, 3) or the day skipper is set to skip all days and all skipper pins are pushed down, 4) or sprinkler valve is bad.

The sprinkler timer dial rotates each 24 hours. The trippers cause sprinkler head to turn on zone 1 for example. Zone 1 waters until the dial rotates to part of dial with no tripper. Without a tripper on the dial, the timer turns off circuit to sprinkler. At this point, the sprinkler valve mechanically advances to zone 2 and waits for timer to turn off again. The timer does not advance sprinkler to next zone > the sprinkler valve is designed to advance each time circuit turns off. The timer just turns on and off. When next tripper rotates around, the timer turn on the circuit and zone 2 begins to water.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/How-to-Set-and-Troubleshoot-Intermatic-sprinkler-timer.pdf

The silver pin inserted at 12midnight position is for advancing the day skipper wheel.

I have a Orbit 57161 Sprinkler System 6-Station Standard Indoor Mounted Control Timer with rainbird sprinklers the issue that I have is the sprinklers stay on and don;t turn off.what do i do?


Manual:
http://www.orbitonline.com/lib/media/57114-14%20rF_Eng.pdf
Website:
http://www.orbitonline.com/products/Timers/02/01/19/671/
Tech service 1-800-488-6156
Timer has 4 year warranty

The manual has troubleshooting

Looking through the manual I can see potential trouble areas:
-Water pressure too high > 60 psi is ordinary household pressure > order Brady BTG pressure gauge that connects to hose
-Overlapping times are 'stacked' by timer ... but 'more than one start time' is listed as cause of stations turning on when not supposed to >> reset and re-program timer, make chart of on-off times
-Weak or missing AA batteries >> clean terminal inside timer and replace batteries
-Hard water deposits or unfiltered water clogging water valve (water softeners frequently have this problem) >>> see if vinegar or CLR cleaner can help flush water valve >>> add sediment filter in front of timer
-Look at screen > does display show Manual? As in manual mode2322052.jpg
-Fuse blown
-Bad solenoid
-A combination of problems listed above with sediment -or- solenoid as main suspects

Hunter XG sprinkler timer not working

https://www.hunterindustries.com/sites/default/files/LIT-397-RevG-OM-X-CORE-EN-web.pdf
REPLACE the alkaline battery can be used to program the controller in the absence of AC power. Even without a 9-volt battery the EC will keep track of time for up to 1 month and retain the program indefinitely in the event of a power outage.
