I have an older Toro residential irrigation timer. I don't know the model number. How do I find the model number?

I don't know where the battery is located. How do I find the battery so I can change it? Or at least find the model number?

Call Toro Tech. help and describe the timer to them and they should be able to guess the model. Sorry, don't have Toro's number because I will not use anything made by Toro. If it was me I would replace the timer. .

    I agree that you should probably call the company above. They should have all the model numbers of everything that they have made and sold. This should help you with everything you need. Good luck and I hope you're able to find what you're looking for! http://www.michaelsirrigation.com/reside...

Somewhere on the unit, you will find the model number, along with a serial number and some other data. If there is a battery box, check inside it.

Toro Visiion Sprinkler Controller Troubleshooting


There are two Toro timer manuals posted:
Copy following links, for ez word search for each manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Toro-53794_UserGuide.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/Toro-53794_UserGuide.pdf
http://www.toro.com/en-us/homeowner/do-it-yourself-irrigation/timers/Pages/default.aspx

The timer can be reset to factory defaults by 'clearing program memory' following steps in manual.
Warranty period is 1 year protection against defects in workmanship, which is standard for timers from Woods to Intermatic to GE etc.

If the display is not working, and zone does not show, then that implies internal defect, or lack of power. Resetting timer might repair problem.
The timer has electro-magnetic relays, and not an internal solenoid.
The timer turns ON or turns OFF electric power to the water valves.
Water valves have solenoids that open and close when power from timer arrives at each zone.
The solenoid can make the sound you describe, but the timer relays with make small click sound as the electromagnetic relay opens and closes.

In addition to resetting timer to factory defaults, and then reprogramming you might try changing wires to different terminals.

Also the timer works on 24Volt AC transformer that plugs into outlet. It is possible to get display errors on timers when voltage is incorrect, or outlet and transformer are not connected well. Test outlet with circuit analyzer. Change outlet because outdoor outlets get corroded. Clean blades on transformer plug.

Power surge and other events can damage timers. Nearby lightning strike. Power outage causes surge when power resumes.

There is 24-hour backup battery, but the battery does not appear to be replaceable type and instead is rechargeable or capacitor type backup. So the battery is probably not the problem

How to wire hunter rain clik rain sensor to r8816p101c


1) There are different rain clik model numbers shown in manual
Open 24 volt Rain clik manual:
http://www.hunterindustries.com/resources/pdfs/instructions/domestic/lit358w.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Hunter-rain-clik-instruction-manual.pdf

2) The rain sensor has two wires.
And two additional wires are needed to run from rain sensor to sprinkler timer. For example, buy thermostat wire from local hardware store if wire is not supplied.

3) The rain sensor has a terminal block where wires are connected. .
Open manual above to identify markings on your terminal block.
For example Figure 1 shows SRC model, and with this model number, the rain sensor wires connect to terminals RS and C, and then two wires going to timer connect to terminals RS and and 1.

4) R8816P101C is 208-240Volt 24-hour irrigation timer.
Timer has two separate terminals for attaching rain sensor.

5) Timer power connections have 4 terminals. Do not connect rain sensor to power terminals.
Connect wires from sensor to the two sensor terminals.

6) Timer slide-switch must be set to ON position for rain sensor operation.
Sensor sends continuous 24Volts to irrigation timer.
When it rains, the rain sensor stops sending 24Volts to timer. Timer responds by not turning on power to irrigation pump.
To by-pass rain sensor, move timer slide-switch to off position.

7) Open following link for Intermatic replacement parts:

8) Take a moment and rate answer:
And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Thank you for including model number of product.
R8806P101C is 240Volt timer with 4 wiring terminals.

You removed factory wiring and want to reattach.
