Question about Individual Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My sprinkler system will not run when I push the on button. I can however run individual stations by using the manual button but that only runs one station at a time. I want all the stations to run.

It won't run automatically either. I tried resetting it by removing battery and Ac.

Any time you remove battery or unplug both at the same time your system will need to be reprogram. the "on" button just turns system on you need to turn your function button to what you want to do... in your case just use the "test" button it will turn on all zones one at a time.

SOURCE: I have a Orbit 57161

Manual:
http://www.orbitonline.com/lib/media/57114-14%20rF_Eng.pdf
Website:
http://www.orbitonline.com/products/Timers/02/01/19/671/
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 mode2322052.jpg
-Fuse blown
-Bad solenoid
-A combination of problems listed above with sediment -or- solenoid as main suspects

SOURCE: black and decker air station won 't work

My Air Station blew a fuse also. The fuse that came with the inflator may be a bit too small amperage wise so I stepped up to .25 Amps more which is just a very small increase.

It is really ill advise to solder a wire in the place of a fuse. You are just asking for it.

The way I did it is I went to my local Radio Shack and got a small fuse holder with red leads and 1.5 Amp fuses. I soldered the fuse holder in place with the new fuse. And now I don't have to deal with any more solder. Just twist the fuse holder, take out the burnt out fuse and replace it with a new one. And wahlah. I'm back in business again.

SOURCE: How do I preset individual radio station frequencies?

To set individual presets: 1. tune to the station you want as a preset 2. hold down the number (ie "1") on the remote until the number blinks on the system 3. repeat for all other stations
press the number on the remote to tune to your preset
this is very similar to setting the presets on my car radio

Unplug it and take out the battery for a minute to see if it resets. If it does not, you need to replace it.

How can the orbit mdoel 57894 be progrmed for multiple start times?


The product manual is confusing... how do you set 1-5 am and 2-12 pm and 3-5 pm? The manual says to press program button to choose A B or C programs, but does not give steps for programming or when to press enter to confirm setting... or say which position the dial should be in when programming.

57894 lets you program separately for each station...turn dial to Run Time and use arrow keys to select a station. Press enter or arrow keys to advance to next station.
57894 offers 'select a station', 'pick days of the week or interval between watering for that station', 'duration of watering for that station'. But picking days of the week is not the same as setting exact times 1-5 am and 2-12 pm.
The dial is set to auto for programs to operate..
Don't forget to activate battery located top right on face of timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Orbit-57894.pdf

So the 57894 has more options than a 24-hour analog sprinkler timer that repeats same cycle each day with 14-day-skipper.

Make sure the bleeders are closed. Sounds like all the valves are open and all are running at the same time.

I just got an Orbit 4 Station Sprinkler Timer with Easy Dial from the landscaper who did my sprinkler system a week ago, he set the timing at 6:30 AM I changed it to 5:45 and SET it and now its running...


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.

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.

I have a TORO ECx controller for my sprinkler system with 8 stations. My gardener turned the system off last fall and I cannot get it to come on this spring. I have turned the main water valve on, and hit...


1. Make sure that there are no other valves on the piping. There may be a backflow preventer outside with valves on it that may have been closed.
2. Do you have a rain sensor? Has it rained in your area in the past two days?
3. Try to run different zones. I can't find the ECX controller so I can't help you.
If you have 7 zones, try running zone 6 or 7.
