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.

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

I have 4 zones can run them manually; but they will not come on the automatic setting. Springs are strong; timer itself keeps accurate time. I did read inside the box about a "Silver Pin"...


If zones are not advancing, then 1) Clock motor is not rotating dial > replace clock motor, 2) on-off trippers are worn down > replace trippers, 3) or the day skipper is set to skip all days and all skipper pins are pushed down, 4) or sprinkler valve is bad.

The sprinkler timer dial rotates each 24 hours. The trippers cause sprinkler head to turn on zone 1 for example. Zone 1 waters until the dial rotates to part of dial with no tripper. Without a tripper on the dial, the timer turns off circuit to sprinkler. At this point, the sprinkler valve mechanically advances to zone 2 and waits for timer to turn off again. The timer does not advance sprinkler to next zone > the sprinkler valve is designed to advance each time circuit turns off. The timer just turns on and off. When next tripper rotates around, the timer turn on the circuit and zone 2 begins to water.

The silver pin inserted at 12midnight position is for advancing the day skipper wheel.

How do you set the days that you want the system to operate ?


R88 series timers at Intermatic.
Click on model number to see manual:
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/mechanical%20time%20switches/sprinkler%20irrigation%20timers.aspx

Add a comment if you have different timer

At fixya, we're not supposed to copy-paste from manual, but manual says information clearly.
If timer has the day-skipper wheel located lower left of large yellow dial:
Not every timer has day-skipper wheel, in which case timer works same for each day.
TO SKIP DAYS: Turn black skipper wheel COUNTER-CLOCKWISE
until today's day is in front of "14" arrow. Press pins DOWN on days
of NO watering. The skipper wheel must have all pins UP for daily
watering.

Additional instructions:
1. TO SET FIRST ZONE: For watering, push gold pin into slot on yellow
dial at desired ON time. For each 12 minutes of additional watering
add one pin WITHOUT skipping a slot.
2. TO CHANGE ZONES: Leave one blank slot on yellow dial after ON
line (gold pin), and valve will automatically advance to next zone.
3. TO SET ADDITIONAL ZONES: Repeat steps 1 and 2. REMEMBER
to leave blank space between zones
4. TO SET TIME OF DAY: Turn yellow dial CLOCKWISE, until correct
line is at end of silver time pointer. Do NOT turn silver pointer.
5. TO SKIP DAYS: Turn black skipper wheel COUNTER-CLOCKWISE
until today's day is in front of "14" arrow. Press pins DOWN on days
of NO watering. The skipper wheel must have all pins UP for daily
watering.
6. PUT SELECTOR SWITCH IN AUTO: This switch can be used to turn
the system ON or OFF for manual operation without affecting the set
program.

My paragon timing motors model 1015-00RSB are not timing as desired,how can i or guide me on how to programme and make schedule adjustments on it? Please help me


http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#1015

The Paragon 1015 timer is a 24-hour timer.
The tripper pins or tabs are built into the timer dial.
This timer has NO and NC terminals.
NO NC terminals mean the timer can control two different circuits.
One circuit would be ON when the other circuit is OFF.
When the timer turns on, the circuits change so now one circuit is OFF and the other circuit is ON.

If you have just one circuit, then the following instructions will help you.
If your timer controls two circuits, you can add a comment and I can help further.

OK, your timer controls one circuit.
Locate the tabs on the timer dial.
Push down all the tabs.
Now lift all the tabs for the times you want your Load to turn ON
So if you want the Load to turn ON from 7pm to 5am, then lift all the tabs between those times.
Now when the timer dial rotates, the tripper tabs operate an on-off lever that turns the Load ON and OFF.

Set current time of day
The timer has to be set to current time.
For example it's 6pm.
Grasp and rotate dial until 6pm lines up with the stationary red pointer

Skipper wheel:
The 1015 series has a skipper wheel that lets you skip days of the week.
On these days the timer program will not turn the Load ON or OFF
So if your regular schedule is ON from 7pm to 5am, then the Load will remain OFF for those times.

Set skipper wheel:
Locate day to be skipped on the small dial.
Raise the set screws for the days you want to skip
Raise set screw until it is tight, but do not force

After a power failure, current time of day has to be reset.

If you need more help, add a comment and I will assist.

HOW DO I SET TODAY MONDAY, SO THE PUMP WILL START ON WEDNESDAY? I PUT MONDAY IN FRONT OF 14 ARROW AND PULL THE PIN OUT FOR WEDNESDAY BUT AS ALL PINS PASS ON YELLOW DIAL TO GET TO WEDNESDAY AND THE 12 MIN....


http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#sprinkler
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/R8806P101C-timer-778.jpg

1) The silver pin goes at 12 midnight on large yellow dial. This pin advances the skipper wheel each day.
2) Turn yellow dial clockwise until current time lines up with silver pointer.
3) Rotate skipper wheel counter-clockwise until today's day (Monday) is in front of 14 arrow.
4) To skip a day of watering, the skipper pin is pushed down for that day. So you want to push down Monday and Tuesday.
For watering, the skipper pins is up for that day. So you want The skipper pin up for Tuesday.
5) The brass trippers are inserted on yellow wheel. Each brass tripper represents 12 minutes of watering for example. So if you want to water for 1/2 hour, then put two consecutive pins on the yellow timer wheel. For 1 hour, put 4 consecutive pins.

My intermatic controller only works manually?


That is a 120 volt timer with a 24 volt output .. if the valves are being activated manually but the clock wheel is not turning to select the zones automatically, first check the wheel . it can become hung up when setting the time, and not be set on its spindlle so it can rotate with the clock motor. If the clock wheel is set and still does not turn, then the clock may be bad
