Timer doesn't run correctly (Vigoro Water Timer)

I had a similar problem, unable to set the date and time, but could enter the program. However then manual on/off wouldn't work, nor would the program run. Turns out water had gotten into the battery compartment because the seal at the top wasn't good enough. I carefully dried it out using a cloth covered screwdriver, then turned it onto its side and ran a hair dryer on low into the battery opening for half an hour, twice. It now programs normally. Water, or just moisture could have gotten in the battery compartment. The battery compartment cover seems not to be waterproof.

I have 2 Vigoro 196-036 watering timers. Why does water come out of the three holes near the battery compartment on one of them?


It comes out of the holes because the water goes in the holes. That might sound dumb but Vigoro designed these only to be in dry conditions, such as attached to the water line. I used them for sprinklers, but the water poured into the timer so bad it shorted it out in a week. I did find a vigoro timer with no holes and a sealed unit, and they work great. But I can't find them anymore.

How to set the time on a vigoro water timer


Most timers for irrigation are easy just take the control knob and put it on the timers face for example it will say set- time to set the time, next it will it will say date ,water times and days there will be a --- or a + sign this will make it go forward or backwards for example to set time push + button and it will start at 12:00am keep going until you reach desired time once you get time click knob to next assignment and it will set automatic repeat and go to each assignment than put knob on auto make sure you have back up batteries in case electric goes out it will keep timer set.
