Melnor 4 zone aqua timer dosent follow program

My aqua timer is set to water each zone in one hour increments 1:00 2:00 3:00 and 4:00, the trouble is that it will turn one of the zones on at 11:00, which zone appears to be random. Time of day and zone times have been checked a number of times and are set correct.

Water timers and Melnor timers last a year or two. They come with 1 year warranty for defects in workmanship.
Change batteries, reset timer if there is a reset protocol, buy another timer. Melnor, Orbit, are major brands. Gardena is not supported. Yardworks repackages other brands.
Copy following link for all watering and irrigation timers on market, with links to manuals for each brand:

SOURCE: Problem programming timer settings. Is it supposed to be random or continuous?

1) Copy following link to identify timer and download possible manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#50006



2) How to set analog timers by experimenting with features:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-set-timers.html



3) 50001 timer is not random vacation timer like the 50003.
50000 series timers by Woods have 1 year limited warranty, and they are a new design released this year. However the analog timer design has been around for many years.


4) If timer is acting randomly, then
a) timer is defective,
b) the override switch is not fully positioned at 'timer on,'
c) segments are not lifted fully in position,


5) ... other more remote causes: outlet might not test 80% rated voltage?, outlet might have reversed polarity?


5) Try timer on different outlet with different light.


6) As the timer dial rotates, the segments push small lever, and the lever moves switch that turns lights on-off. I suppose if this lever was broken or switch was broken, then timer would act more randomly.

SOURCE: How to set time on Yardworks two zone water timer

Copy following link to access manuals for each brand of water timer on market 2013:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#sprinkler
Yardworks does not have website, manuals or warranty claim procedure.
Instead, yardworks repackages other brands of timer, generally water timers, such as orbit or melnor and raindrip. And sometimes repackages other brands of outdoor timers.
Recommend folks stay away from timer-repackagers such as Yardworks, Timex, First Alert, and buy brand names that have clear customer resources.

Melnor water timer


Melnor is major water timer company, and not off-brand. However, water timers last a couple years, or less, sometimes they last long time but that is not often.
If not drained completely of water, they will break when water freezes.

Regarding the Vigoro Electronic Water Timer, Model 196 036: How do I program the timer to water every day, in the early a.m., then in the evening? Is the greatest hourly spread per day 12 hrs.? In...


I think you almost have it right, you can program how many hours apart.
4=6 x per day
6=4 x per day
8=3 x per day
12= 2 x per day
24=1 x per day
Then you set how long you want it to be on, but that can't exceed your hour setting. I believe these are the same timers as Melnor. You can go to their web site for manuals. http://www.melnor.com/instructions.php. If you really want exact timing, I'd get a quality electric timer, and then buy a electric valve such as you'd use for a sprinkler system.

Can it be set to water every other day


Assuming that your model number is 3018 you just need to keep cycling through the frequency options by pressing "change". The hourly options end with "h" and the day options end with "d". So "2d" means every other day. Press "accept" when you come to "2d".
