What timer is this?
http://www.electricsupplyonline.com/prod/intermatic-springwound_timers.php

Sounds like a defective timer.
I have three Intermatic spring wound timers that are used every day, and never have that problem.
After all, how does the timer 'know' when it's set on the 'hour' since the dial does not have stop points at specific times?

SOURCE: I have a 6 station

I am somewhat confused about your station numbers. How many stations do you have? What is Ihappening with stations 1, 3, 5, 6?
Regardless, this is probably what is happening.
No matter how many stations you have, YOU ONLY PUT IN ONE START TIME. That one start time begins the cycle that starts with station 1 and proceeds to the other stations based on your station RUN times.
If you have one start time of 6:00 am, and a run time of 60 minutes for each zone, then
At 6:00 am station 1 starts.
at 7:00, station 1 shuts off & station 2 starts.
at 8:00, station 2 shuts and station 3 starts, etc.
You are not programming the individual start times for each station.
If you put in more than one start time, the timer remembers and will run all stations then go back and begin again and if there is a third start time, it will begin a third time.

I have an Orbit 9 Station Sprinkler System & the manual watering feature isn't working. I replaced the 2 AA batteries & the fuse in the control box but it still won't come on. Can you help me?


Based on my knowledge of Orbit branded products like yours your timer has failed and you need to replace the unit with another more reliable brand. Orbit has real issues with their designs.

Most likely timer is not plugged in or outlet has no power. Should display a plug with a circle around it with a line through it. If not. Check the wiring be sure the same color wire used for Common in the timer is used in the field. Should have 1 wire from each valve connected to it.

Mod 57880 am setting ok pm setting wont come on ?


Is this new timer?
Or timer that worked before and stopped working?

Check outlet with circuit analyzer for correct polarity and grounding.
Reset timer and re-program, being careful to avoid conflicts and/or overlaps. Each ON time must also have OFF time with consistent days for each. If selected time is 12:00, then use 11:59 instead to avoid possible problems with am and pm conflict.
product comes with 1 year limited warranty.

Orbit digital 57880 sprinkler timer manual is 19 pages long, which is good argument for using analog timers with 1 page manual.
Troubleshoot appears on page 18 of manual, and includes Tech service number.

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.
