Question about Garden
more than likely a bad solenoid or valve.
maybe a bad wiring connection.
you should have a white wire (common)
and a lead wire for each different zone (say you have four zones, you will have 4 lead wires)
get some 1.5 amp fuses from any local hardware store.
un hook the timer's transformer wires and be careful not to touch them together or you will fry the transformer.
touch one end of the transformer wire to the common,
and the other transformer wire to the lead wires one at a timewith a fuse in between the lead and the transformer wires.
when you are doing this you are simply bypassing the timer.
the good zones should come on when you touch their wires to the power.
when the fuse blows.. you know which valve has a problem.
more than likely you have a bad solenoid.
they get hit by lightening pretty often.
if you know where the valves are in your yard you can fix it yourself by checking for power at the valve or valves that are blowing fuses.
if you get power but no water. replace the solenoid. if still no go, replace the valve top too.
if you do not know where the valves are you should calla professional company in.
check for a leak on the fourth zone. a leak will sometimes cause an entire zone to not work.
but, always start at your timer when troubleshooting.
hope this helps
