Remove the backup battery.
Unplug the timer for 10 seconds, this will do a full electronic reset.
Try to reprogram "program 1".
If this doesn't work, "program 1" may be damaged internally in the controller.
If it is adequate, use "program 2".
Reinstall backup battery.

How to wire


First check the solenoids by performing a continuity test on all of them. For all the solenoids that test good, power each one with 24 volts to make sure that the plunger moves. Then go to the timer and initiate an ON cycle for, say, zone one. Go to the zone 1 connector on timer and check for presence of 24 volts ac. If not present try zone 2 for output. If nada then there is something wrong with the electronics of the timer.

Need operating instructions


Go to Orbits web site and download instructions. Or since you have the least expensive timer known to man simply buy another one for $20.00 then you will have instructions and a spare timer. You will need it trust me.

"my orbit easy dial 6 station quit working in auto


Does it work manually? If so, which is rare and almost unheard of I would replace the timer. You can't buy a less expensive timer $20 for a 4 station. Which explains why it is not working. If it doesn't work make sure it is plugged in and outlet has power.

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.

Lost instruction manual to set timer on oasis dundee 6 station sprinkler system


I can't locate any info on that timer. There is no timer that I can't figure out, I'm an irrigation contractor. Tell me what the face looks like or what buttons or dials are on it and I'll see if I can help.

Some sections of RainBird irrigation system not working.


The next step is to go to the control valves, can you turn on the remaining 4 via manual lever?

If so, the next step is to test the valve itself. disconnect the wires from one valve that IS working, and connect to one that is not. If that one works, then the issue moves upstream to any other connections, and the unit's programming...

Typically, you just turn off the water source, and not the controller... as you can still have water flow....
