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.

Make sure the bleeder is closed or solenoid is tight. Sometimes valves just fail without a obvious reason. Suggest purchasing the same jar top valve and rebuilt it using the new diaphragm, spring, bonnet and solenoid. This should correct the problem.

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.
