Replace backup battery


Posted under orbit timers... product not identified
Many timers today have a backup 'battery' that is actually a capacitor located on the circuit board.
Generally the battery is not replaceable and is specific to the circuit board design and model of product.
Product manuals and manufacturers call it a battery because it works like a battery to preserve settings during brief power outage.

If the timer has a replaceable battery, then there will be a small door located somewhere on timer that can usually be popped open using thumb or small tool.

There are some timers that have a replaceable battery... this applies to wall timers, box timers, timer modules, and sprinkler timers etc... and this is very useful for some applications because the timer can operate loads independent of using voltage.
Disadvantage of replaceable battery is failure due to cold weather or bad battery connection. Advantage of capacitor-type battery is low cost and high reliability.

WHY THE SPRINKLER IS NOT OSCILLATING?


Either it's jammed or the water pressure isn't high enough. Try to free it up or if you can, open the tap further.

Link has all sprinkler timer manuals available online 2012.
Probably does not include older timers since manufacturers post recent manuals, with expectation that today's sprinkler timers do not last long. Except for Intermatic 120V-240V sprinkler timers that are made to last decades and have replacement parts.

Okay, then you answered your own question. I like it! However, did you test the wire to see if it will start a different valve and vise versa?

Hunter pro C will not allow all zones to water.


The fact that you are getting no error message indicates that programming is not right, or there is electrical short between timer and sprinkler solenoid:

With all digital timers, it is important to clear memory before starting, and then double-check there are no conflicts in programming.
Page 22-23 of the manual has quick-check procedure for identifying shorts that would cause problems.
Check outlet with circuit analyzer to check for correct polarity and grounding.
Google search Hunter Pro C manual to download searchable pdf manual
Keep in mind also that digital timers are susceptible to line noise, and power surge. Simple power outage can disable digital timer. There are no replacement parts.
That's why I recommend good old fashion 14-day repeat-cycle mechanical sprinkler timer with fewer features, but replaceable parts.
For example T8845PV with 24Volt ac output

Im trying to change out my automatic sprikler timer, the new one is Intermatic model T8845PV. Its an old house I have two hot wires going in to the old timer, and I only see one spot for my hot wire in the...

http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T8845PV-image-700.jpg

If you have 2 hot wires, then you have 240Volt circuit from breaker box.
T8845PV is 120Volt timer.
How to wire for 120Volt: Use one hot wire to connect to LINE terminal. Cap off other hot wire. Then connect bare ground wire to terminal marked NEUTRAL.
This is not code, but it will work until you have time to run 120Volt line from nearby 120Volt outlet.
Read about 120 and 240Volt circuits
http://waterheatertimer.org/B220C.html

T8845PV is 120Volt timer, made to control 24Volt sprinkler valve.
Inside the timer, there are two wiring terminals marked LINE and NEUTRAL
120Volt cable from circuit breaker has black hot wire and white neutral wire.
Connect black hot to terminal marked LINE
Connect white neutral to terminal marked NEUTRAL

The yellow wires are 24Volt output.
Yellow wires connect to sprinkler valve.
Do not connect 120Volt to yellow wires.
This timer does not have terminals for rain sensor:

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.

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.
