Question about Orbit 3/4-in Brass Electric Anti-Siphon Irrigation Valve 57065

Open Question

My Orbit brass sprinkle will not shut off the water flow to the sprinklers. I took it apart. The plunger is free, the magnet controller is working and I have a steady flow of water to the controller. Is there an o-ring or a needle valve I may have lost in the process... The spring that piston back down on top of the inlet water port doesn't seem strong enough to stop water flow of 50 to 60 pounds water pressure.

Have you programmed the new one with all the info for date and time? Did you set the zones for the days you want and watering times?

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.

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

SOURCE: My orbit tractor lawn sprinkler

try turning the nozzles the other way - they should turn counter clockwise when looking from the top, not clockwise.

Make sure the bleeder is closed or solenoid is tight. Sometimes valves just fail without a obvious reason. Suggest purchasing the same jar top valve and rebuilt it using the new diaphragm, spring, bonnet and solenoid. This should correct the problem.

First thing to check is the power supply. Are the batteries fresh? Most likely you need to reprogram. There is likely a previous program that is causing the errant watering. Here is a good video on how to program.

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.
