Question about Hardware & Accessories
Manual says 'tappets are pre-set to off-peak.
However if you want different time, move tappets outward.'
Timer dial is ordinary 24-hour analog.
You can remove glass cover, and manually rotate the dial around and observe what happens to get best idea how you want to set timer.
Set current time by manually rotating dial until current time lines up with winter or summer time arrowhead

SOURCE: I have a Orbit 57161
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 mode
-A combination of problems listed above with sediment -or- solenoid as main suspects
