SOURCE: I have a Orbit 57161
Tech service 1-800-488-6156
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 mode
-A combination of problems listed above with sediment -or- solenoid as main suspects

To reset your timer, you'll need to replace the 3 AA batteries then press the reset button on the back of the housing.
If you'd like to refer to the manual, you can find the manual at orbitonline.com. Just click on the "manual and guides" link under the "Support" heading found on the left hand side of the home page. Enter the model number of your timer "62015" and click the quick search button. Your search will provide a link to the manual in up to 5 different languages in a pdf. file format. Click on the manual of your choice. Once the manual is downloaded (this will take a second or two if you have high speed) onto your computer you can print out the manual for future reference.
Hope this helps.

You don't program each station. You only program one start time that begins the cycle that consists of the three stations.
Remove all start times but the first one and make that 5:45.
Set the station times to whatever you want, 12 minutes.
At 5:45, station 1 starts.
at 5:57, station 1 shuts off, station 2 starts.
at 6:09, station 2 shuts and station 3 starts.
at 6:21, station 3 shuts.
