Gilmour 9400 water timer won't turn on

My Gilmour 9400 water timer won't turn on. The timer was set (working fine) then I began to notice it was not coming on. I tried turning it on manually (using the display) and it tries to come on but it just makes a clicking noise and won't turn on. Thought it might be a battery problem (although the display was working fine) so I took the timer off changed the batteries tried it off the hose bib (worked fine the valve turned) and before replacing it I turned the valve on the hose manually it worked fine so I replaced it and tried to turn on and still the clicking and would not turn on!!!! This timer is at the most 3 years old

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.

I need the valve part of a Gilmour 9400 timer. It is the black portion that snaps off of the power/timer portion. It has the spigot, water feed, and ball valve. Can this part be purchased? Mine froze and blew out the O-ring and O-ring support. If your timer portion has stripped gears, but your valve is fine, maybe we can work out a swap to fix yours or mine.. Let me know!

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.

If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at

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!
