Sprinkler will not change zones


You mean timer will not change zones? Is it from zone 1 to zone 2? Does the timer say it is watering zone 2 and no water, does it default and shut down on zone 2? Does zone 2 have run time? Can you be a little more specific?

My Nelson SmartZone Ez operates 4 zones. Zone no. 1, 3 and 4 operate normally but zone no. 2 doesn't. I can hear a click when the program tries to run the pump for this zone zone but after a second it...


Let me answer your second question first. The rain sensor should take a day or two to dry out, it is supposed to duplicate drying of the earth. It is, however, adjustable so it requires more rain to shut off and comes back on quicker.
Your timer may be operating properly but you may have a faulty control valve for Zone 2. In many systems, there are control valves for each zone.

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.

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