SOURCE: I have an Orbit WaterMaster Sprinkler control, it

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.

SOURCE: Trying to find a manual

1) Copy following link for sprinkler timer links:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#sprinkler

2) Add comment March 2013 and describe timer in detail.
This will let me search files for same-similar timer, and find manuals that might be same-similar

3) Old timers, especially digital timers, are sometimes easier replaced with new.

Model 57882 9 station timer I did set up station 1 where do I begin in order to set up station 3


Question is not clear.
Do you have programming problem with the timer?
Or problem locating sprinkler heads?
Or a sprinkler valve problem?
Add a comment with detailed information.

Sprinkler timer turns ON-and-OFF.
Timer does not advance the sprinkler to next station. The sprinkler valve advances to next station when timer turns OFF.
For example, when timer turns ON, then station 1 starts watering.
Timer turns off, and then sprinkler valve automatically advances to station 2.
Timer turns on again, and station 2 starts watering.

I have Intermatic sprinkler model T8845pv. I want to set it for daily watering in only one of 8 zones. When I remove the gold pins in the main dial and locate the zone I want to water, it waters the...


Intermatic sprinkler timers are 24 hour repeat cycle, with day-skipper option.
The timer does not change zones. The timer just turns ON-and-OFF at scheduled times.
Each tripper represents 12-15 minutes of watering. And then the timer circuit turns OFF.
When timer circuit turns OFF, the sprinkler system is designed to advance to next zone each time.
So when the timer circuit turns OFF and then turns ON again, your sprinkler control starts watering the next zone. This is the way sprinkler systems are designed.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#sprinkler

If you had a sprinkler system with 1 zone, or could change your sprinkler system to 1 zone on certain days, then the timer would turn that zone on-off each time.
Call a local sprinkler company and see if they have a dual control or some solution >> but sprinkler controls are outside my area of expertise. I am timer expert.

You could solve problem with two separate sprinkler systems, but that would require two timers. I have never seen a 2-channel sprinkler timer. There are electronic two-channel timers that can handle two different programming schedules with minimum 1 minute on-off, and these timers can cost a few hundred dollars up to thousands, PLUS cost of the dual sprinkler system. Add a comment and let me know if two-channel timers are something you want information on.

This device is simply a 24 hour timer. It has a special enclosure classified as "Rain Tight" that helps prevent rain from entering - as water from a hose directed at it would enter the enclosure causing damage to the timer.

It is NOT a timer designed to operate a traditional pop-up sprinkler system. Those timing devices allow water to flow into the lawn sprinkler system and spray out from a certain area of sprinklers for a predetermined amount of time, then switches this area or zone off and turns on the next. This continues until all zones have watered the area where sprinklers have been installed.

The device you are asking about simply switches power on and off to one load. It can not control multiple loads - or as in your case "zones". You would install ON trippers at the time of day on the yellow time disc when the load would be ON and install OFF tripper when the load should be turned OFF. If the load were a light, you could turn this light on and off many times a day - dependent only on how many ON and OFF trippers you installed on the yellow time disc.

A sprinkler timer must be selected instead. This will allow you to select the number of days between watering, will operate many zones, control of how long the water is to remain on to each zone, detect if it has recently rained or if it is currently raining, etc. One is pictured below:

I hope this helps. If you have additional questions or comments, please provide the manufacturer's name AND the exact model number of the timer you are talking about. Good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.
