I dropped my tablet and now everything is backwards words,screen,everything help


Hello! you might need to calibrate your tablet`s sensor, if that doesn`t work please turn off the auto rotation on your tablet, and then reboot your tablet. if that doesn`t work, please do a factory reset on your tablet by pressing power button + volume down, your tablet will go into recovery mode and look for factory reset.

Most likely timer is not plugged in or outlet has no power. Should display a plug with a circle around it with a line through it. If not. Check the wiring be sure the same color wire used for Common in the timer is used in the field. Should have 1 wire from each valve connected to it.

Yardworks timer 59-3213-8 not functioning properly


Yardworks is a non-supported brand name that re-packages timers from different manufacturers including Orbit, Melnor, Tork etc.
Copy following link to access sprinkler timer manuals, to help identify product.

Most Yardwork timers are sprinkler, but I have also seen auto-off christmas light timers.
Add a comment and describe timer in detail. Otherwise the only google result for that timer model is fixya, which indicates there are no online resources.
Also check battery ... if timer has battery, it will last about 3 years.
Also do not expose water timers to freezing temperatures.
Most timers last a couple years, and most have 1 year limited warranty against defects in workmanship. Unknown who supplies warranty coverage for Yardworks.

Hardwire the orbit outdoor sprinkler timer


Reset the timer? This will sometimes resolve many problems.

Are you sure the conduit has 120Volt? Is the timer connected to single breaker?
Or is circuit 240V? Timer connected to double breaker.

What do you mean green wire to negative?

What else is on the conduit circuit?
Motors, fluorescent lights, and other electronics can interfere with electronic timers.
Run extension cord to timer from another electrical source and see if problem continues.

Re-post question with model number so timer-electricity expert can read the troubleshoot section of manual.

Orbit 57004 sprinkler controller does not turn on valves in Auto mode. Works OK in manual mode. All settings were checked carefully and repeatedly and verified by Orbit tech assistant by walk through


I am experiencing the same problem with my Orbit 57004. Did you ever figure out what was causing it not to start in "Auto" mode? he solutions above are not panning out for me.

Manual test does not work Looks like it does but water does not come on


If the manual test doesn't work, I think the auto function won't work either. If that is true, your timer is running on the battery and there is no power. Remove the battery and see if it appears to be working. If not, check your outlet to ensure that there is 120 volts ac. Plug a light or shaver into the outlet. If the outlet is good and the clock has no power when the transformer is plugged, you probably need a new transformer.

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 am looking for a battery water timer that does not need pressure to operate. Just gravity. Any ideas?


Google search: 'battery operated timer' and 'battery operated hose end'

Smarthome shows the Orbit: and has manual:
http://www.smarthome.com/31035/Orbit-57860-Battery-Operated-Sprinkler-Timer-with-Inline-Valve/p.aspx

The manual says 'turn down water pressure.' It looks to me like this timer opens and closes the valve with or without water pressure.
Sounds like it would be perfect timer for above ground cistern where gravity cause water to flow when valve is opened.

Amazon shows battery operated hose end, but doesn't show manual:
Hose end timers are not going to have a pressure gauge.
