I purchased two Gilmour 9400 Electric Water Timers. One, I bumped with the mower and broke the "black" back part that hooks to the Water Faucet & Hose. The other, I left on too long last Fall and it froze and split. Called Gilmour Customer Service and they said they don't sell this part! The most vulnerable part and they don't stock it! Looks like we all have the same problem, any one have the parts out there?

I have the same problem. Mine blew out the O ring and it pops back out when under pressure. I just need the black back part, the electronics are fine.

I have a gilmour 9100 watering timer given to me, but, the intruction sticker is gone. Can you help me!

Evidently Gilmour does not show that product any more, nor post product manuals.

However, I might be able to help with a clear description of your timer.
Add a comment and describe which Gilmore timer on the Gilmour site most resembles your timer, and then describe timer in detail, including any buttons that show on face.

Re Gilmour water timer 9200 - if timer not working (water is going thru but time does not change) is there a battery inside to change? How get at?

There is no battery, this timer is water driven. I looked on an Amazon site and several users were complaining that it doesn't shut off once it starts.
Check the inlet for debris in the filter or inlet opening.
I have no other ideas.

I need a copy of Gilmour 9600 programming instructions

Hello. Have found a link that may help, the category for electronic timers is listed as the 9400 series. I'm guessing Gilmour has generic instructions for all their timers. If this is not the case, the toll free number at the top of the page should yield some positive results - just use the "satisfaction for the life of the product..." line and I'm certain they will assist.

If this helps, please don't forget to rate this answer a four-thumbs up, Thank You.

Please send me a copy of the model 9600 manual for the Gilmore timer if you have it. Thanks a bunch!

Glad to HELP YOU!

I didn't find a MODEL #9600 but I've found a GILMOUR OUTDOOR TIMER MANUAL for MODEL #9400.
They are absolute SIMILAR!
So you can take the manual from HERE.

My best regards!

After winter storage and frost interference my gardena water control T1030 plus seems to misbehave. There is a small hole on the side of the filter (which I haven't noticed before) through which a strong...

If you leave water inside plastic timer or plastic hose parts, and water freezes during winter, then the plastic will split as frozen water expands.
Buy new water control.

Open link below for some Gardena manuals including T1030

By the way, if they made the same parts out of brass or copper, the brass and copper would expand instead of crack during a freeze, but the internal valves would be ruined anyway.
So plastic is a good material, just bring these things indoors or drain the water for winter storage.

Add a comment with your experience so others with same-similar problem can benefit.

Gilmour 9400 water timer won't turn on

Well, I have the same problem. In fact, I just took mine apart (look for 4 screws on the back gray plastic) and found that the gears are stripped. About 3 of the teeth are broke off. I've been looking for parts on the Internet, but no luck yet. I'm afraid the only solution is to purchase a new timer.
