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?

SOURCE: I have an Orbit WaterMaster Sprinkler control, it

There are 3 things this "off power" "light bulb" could be. Blinking red light? means fuse has gone out. Check the power source where the unit is plugged in to. Is the GFI popped out? plug something else like a fan or something into the socket to test. the third thing is a short internally. Call orbit technical assistance. they're great.

Timer has 4 year warranty

The manual has troubleshooting

Looking through the manual I can see potential trouble areas:
-Water pressure too high > 60 psi is ordinary household pressure > order Brady BTG pressure gauge that connects to hose
-Overlapping times are 'stacked' by timer ... but 'more than one start time' is listed as cause of stations turning on when not supposed to >> reset and re-program timer, make chart of on-off times
-Weak or missing AA batteries >> clean terminal inside timer and replace batteries
-Hard water deposits or unfiltered water clogging water valve (water softeners frequently have this problem) >>> see if vinegar or CLR cleaner can help flush water valve >>> add sediment filter in front of timer
-Look at screen > does display show Manual? As in manual mode2322052.jpg
-Fuse blown
-Bad solenoid
-A combination of problems listed above with sediment -or- solenoid as main suspects

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.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Inside-Main-Breaker-Box-8-8.jpg

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.

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.
