Hi Andy, I think I have found a solution to your problem. With the time and day set, clear the program for each station by selecting Start 1, station 1, off, and repeat for each station. Then select Start 1, Station 1 and hold down the Day button. The Mon for Week 1 of the cycle should appear. Then if you hold down the Off button, the Mon will scroll down to your allocated watering day of week 1 eg Sat. Then, Hold down the Day button again until the next day appears eg Sun in my example above. If you again hold down the Off button, that Sun will scroll through to your allocated day of the week in Week 2. Hope this helps. Next job will be to change it when restrictions change in summer!

Hi i am also looking for that manual!
Anyway make sure you push the black "day selection" button then go back up to the second row to select/deselect the correct days. then use arrows to set minutes up and down. Then push red stop button to save so you can then choose the next station and repeat.
if you found the manual let me know please!!

    I'd also love to see the manual - all I've got is a faded instruction overview stuck to the inside of the controller box door - and thats no use to man nor beast.
    If anyone's managed how to program the RB1 and to save it (I can't even get manual start to work) I'd really appreciate some hints!
    cheers

    I've just bought a new house with an RB1 also with the faded instruction overview inside the box. I was able to get the manual start and system test cycle to work but the actual programming sequence must still be at NASA. I've got the system coming on - but the wrong day, wrong time, and wrong length. Any help would be appreciated. It really shouldn't be rocket science surely?!!!

    HOLMAN industries are the people resopnsible for the design and manafacture of this usless controller also know by name as Ezy 1( ha!!) it was designed by their Rocket Scientest who thought it may be used by equally minded Scientest who like to take simple stuff and make it as complated as the can MY advise is get a new on and nothing that has HOLMAN INDUSTRIES attached to 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.

Understand the instructions for TS EE8


Following link has product manual that might match your timer:
Use + button at top of manual to enlarge print.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Argos-7day-Electronic-Timer-Manual-TS-EE8.pdf

Please add a comment and say if this manual matches your timer...fixya will send me email... and I will answer.

Include where you get confused.
You set current time first... that's the time that shows on your wristwatch right now.
You set day of the week... same day it is right now.
You set hour and minute.

The timer allows you to set up to 8 programs... you can set just 1 program or 2 or 3 etc.
Each program must have ON time
You set program 1 ON
Each program must have OFF time.
You set program 1 OFF
Each program must have a day or days of operation
So you might select monday ON at 10:10 am and OFF at 3:36 pm.
And other program for Tuesday ON at 10:45 and OFF at 4:00 pm.

When programming is finished, you set mode to auto for programs to run on the schedule you set.

How do i set the system to run 2 times per day


You have multiple start times in 1 or all of the programs A,B,C or D. 1 start time in the A program will run the zones in this program once on the days it is schedule to water. Example: Think of each program as a separate timer. All want to know 3 things What time to water, how long to water for and what days to water. Timer 1 is the A program. Set to water everyday at 8 am for every zone which has a duration. Don't want the plants to water everyday take the minutes out of zone run time in this timer or the A program. Want the plants to water M,W,F add a start time, a run time to corresponding zone and M,W,F in timer 2 or B program. Want the plants to water twice in a 24 hr period add a second start time to each timer or program. and so on. The programs are only used for watering schedules with more or less days per week you want a specific zone to water. Otherwise use only the A program with 1 start time for once a day or whatever days you desire for all zones.

Have a fleck 5600 water softener timer (not economider) dont understand the setting of the days of week when there is 12 pointers on the skipper wheel?


The 12 day wheel is used primarily so that the unit does NOT regenerate on the same day of the week, every week.
There is a 7 day wheel available for this valve so if you irrigate on specific days, and you need it to cycle on specific days, you have the ability to do it without the softener cycling at the same time as watering schedule.

I have a whirlpool DU943PWKQU, first about 6 months ago all the push buttons except light wash stopped working. Now this week it started giving me problems starting all together at first I resolved by...


It seems to be the program controller and you will have to get this checked. Remove the power off for some time and reset it back . If the programs are not responding then you will need to check from the power cord to the control panel to see if this is working and can give hte output with the required inputs when the program is selected.
So does the water go in , if not the controller is faulty.

Icemaker overflows water , repairman has replaced the icemaker twice, after this last time, it started making 1 tray of cubes per week, then after about 2 weeks, started overflowing water again.


Good day,
If it is erratic as you describe and replacing the ice maker twice has not resolved the issue it would make sense to replace the water valve in the back rear of the machine, if it hasn't been done so yet. It's the flakiest part of the system and has the highest failure rate. It's been known to fill too little, to much, and sometimes not at all.

RE: Installing rainbow E series water pan latch

Need to know how to install rainbow water pan latch and spring latch

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Rainbow E Series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum. The Rainbow latch can be replaced but I believe it is a pop rivet that holds and replaces the old latch and to replace the new latch, I have seen it done but if you don’t have the right tools you may want to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area, it can be done. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

The Rainbow / RexAir Factory phone number is listed below:
http://rainbowvacuum.com Customer Service
1-248-643-7222 Monday thru Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EST

Thanks, Don the Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.
