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?

How to wire


First check the solenoids by performing a continuity test on all of them. For all the solenoids that test good, power each one with 24 volts to make sure that the plunger moves. Then go to the timer and initiate an ON cycle for, say, zone one. Go to the zone 1 connector on timer and check for presence of 24 volts ac. If not present try zone 2 for output. If nada then there is something wrong with the electronics of the timer.

My sprinkler head is stuck spaying in one spot and I can't figure out how to adjust the range and distance of it.


Sounds like you have a bucket impact sprinkler. These are problematic as they tend to beat themselves into non-operation from the moving parts involved and the impacts. They stop turning for a number of reasons, low water pressure, dirt and debris filling the bucket impeding rotation, plants covering the sprinkler etc. If no debris is found and others continue to work on same zone the water pressure is probably unchanged it may just be tired. I suggest replacing it using a pop-up rotor preferably a Hunter PGP-ADJ or PGJ-ADJ Rotor as rotors have only 1 moving part a gear which is sealed inside the sprinkler making them very dependable.

Need operating instructions


Go to Orbits web site and download instructions. Or since you have the least expensive timer known to man simply buy another one for $20.00 then you will have instructions and a spare timer. You will need it trust me.

Does it work manually? If so, which is rare and almost unheard of I would replace the timer. You can't buy a less expensive timer $20 for a 4 station. Which explains why it is not working. If it doesn't work make sure it is plugged in and outlet has power.

What model number of timer? I have to see exactly which timer you have to answer question.
What wire goes where?
Are you using 120Volts?

What voltage is solenoid? 24Volt or 120Volt?

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

Orbit Model 57896 I can only get 4 stations I seem to have lost two that I did have.


Try removing the battery, unplugging the timer, plugging the timer back in, pushing the reset button (if you can find it) and try reprogramming for all 6 zones. Post again after trying.
