I have a Rainbird ISA 300/400 sprinkler system. It has a dual A& B program. I would like only program A to water. How do I deactiveate B?

    Then why does the sprinkler go through its cycle twice rather than the one time I have chosen?

    Clearly, I don't know what I'm doing. Guess I would rather call in a sprinkler company. Thanks, anyway.

All you have to do is set the program 'A B' switch to the 'A' position. The program that you have set for A will run only. B is not active.

    position. The program that you have set for A will run only. B is not

    If you are still not getting what you want, go to the 'advanced'
    position on the rotary dial position and make sure that you are set for
    either odd, even or custom. Custom will run the days of the week that
    are set to 'on'. Odd setting runs Tues, Thur, Sat. Even runs Mon, Wed
    and Fri

    It's all on the door for your of the controller. Or go to the web site

    Go to the 'watering times 'setting on the dial and only put one watering time. Hit the manual button and get rid of the other watering times, just the one.

Rainbird ITC4 - We inherited this sprinkler system but no manual - I would like instructions on how to program it?

I don't see the ITC4 on the rainbird website? Id this an extremely old system? Other user manuals can be found here:

If you can find the most similar modern version of the system, there might be strong similarities in the operation. Also, just familiarizing yourself with the operation of some of the other systems could help you figure out how to operate the old one.

Rainbird troubleshooting

It could be not enough water pressure, dirt on the shaft or it is worn out assuming the parts are all there. They are not very expensive you might just want to buy a new one.

Rainbird troubleshooting

It is likely the water pressure is low (perhaps a leak in the irrigation pipe) or simply the spring is stuck. Wonder if you have more than one sprinkler connected and if all are having the same problem.
