When i turn the system to run hear a click in the pump relay but system does not come on


Turning the dial to run should not send any electrical current anywhere it simply is set to come on at the scheduled time. If your turning the dial to run and attempting to start the valve manually and a click the pump or valve solenoid clicks, the flow control may be closed, the water is off or the valve has failed to open. Try opening the bleeder screw to see if the valve opens this way. If so, try replacing the solenoid if no, replace the valve.

I have a watermaster timer and the fuse keeps blowing. It's kept indoor so it's not getting wet. What would you recommend checking?


Watermaster timer has 24V AC transformer that plugs into outlet.
I don't know if the transformer is causing problem, or is circuit has a problem.

1) Use cheap circuit analyzer from home center to check outlet for problems.
2) If possible, replace Watermaster transformer with 24V AC transformer available from home center doorbell section.
3) Move transformer to another outlet and see if problem persists.
4) Actions above can give some indication if transformer or circuit are causing problem. If circuit is suspect, move wire to another circuit breaker, and/or replace circuit breaker.

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?

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

I have an Orbit WaterMaster Sprinkler control, it is hooked up, but there is a light bulb that says power off and the sprinklers won't turn on. They will turn on manually at the sprinkler station. Can...


There are 3 things this "off power" "light bulb" could be. Blinking red light? means fuse has gone out. Check the power source where the unit is plugged in to. Is the GFI popped out? plug something else like a fan or something into the socket to test. the third thing is a short internally. Call orbit technical assistance. they're great.
