Orbit walking sprinkler

Help. Why is my orbit walking sprinkler walking backwards? I do not know how to make it walk forwards. Is there some adjustment I accidentally hit or moved?

You probably just have the arms pointed the wrong way. To travel forward the angled part of the arm should be pointed in a clockwise direction. Aim them the other way and it travels backward.

My orbit is wired right, but only sprinkler number 2 will work. It comes on when I push for 1 3and 4


If indeed it is wired correctly, and your wires go where you think they do, then your Orbit is defective.
Test by removing wires 1,2,3, and 4.
Push for 1, and touch wire 1 to the connector for 1. Sprinkler 1 comes on? Touch wire 1 to the connector for 2. Sprinkler 1 comes on?
If yes to both, then Orbit is broken.

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.

My orbit tractor lawn sprinkler goes backwards instead of forward. So, it won't track on the water hose. What's wrong?


try turning the nozzles the other way - they should turn counter clockwise when looking from the top, not clockwise.

I have an Orbit WaterMaster Sprinkler control, it is hooked up, but there is a light bulb that says power off and the sprinklers won't turn on. They will turn on manually at the sprinkler station. Can...


There are 3 things this "off power" "light bulb" could be. Blinking red light? means fuse has gone out. Check the power source where the unit is plugged in to. Is the GFI popped out? plug something else like a fan or something into the socket to test. the third thing is a short internally. Call orbit technical assistance. they're great.
