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.

You have one start time. The other zones are continuous after the first zone ends.

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 is output voltage of timer?
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

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.

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.
