The manual for these old Orbit controllers POORLY explain the setting function for multiple stations. In a program (A/B/C) all stations you set up will run when that program starts. And all stations on the same frequency, Daily, etc! I found that I need to place station 1 under Program A, and station 2 under Program B, in order to properly schedule my plants, and my trees, for individually different watering schedules. So yes, in a Program, only set up ONE start time under your first station, and then all will run consecutively. Use Programs to separate your station's schedules.

Have you programmed the new one with all the info for date and time? Did you set the zones for the days you want and watering times?

To reset your timer, you'll need to replace the 3 AA batteries then press the reset button on the back of the housing.
If you'd like to refer to the manual, you can find the manual at orbitonline.com. Just click on the "manual and guides" link under the "Support" heading found on the left hand side of the home page. Enter the model number of your timer "62015" and click the quick search button. Your search will provide a link to the manual in up to 5 different languages in a pdf. file format. Click on the manual of your choice. Once the manual is downloaded (this will take a second or two if you have high speed) onto your computer you can print out the manual for future reference.
Hope this helps.

You don't program each station. You only program one start time that begins the cycle that consists of the three stations.
Remove all start times but the first one and make that 5:45.
Set the station times to whatever you want, 12 minutes.
At 5:45, station 1 starts.
at 5:57, station 1 shuts off, station 2 starts.
at 6:09, station 2 shuts and station 3 starts.
at 6:21, station 3 shuts.

I have a 12 station Orbit Model #57900and I want to water the same stations two to three times a day


Program modes
Program A or 1 is your primary program setting. All Zones will run on this program.
Select program B. Or 2
Set start time for program B usually an hour or two after the LAST zone (12) run time on program A or 1
1. set selected run time for the zones you want to run. 5 min -20 min ( leave the others 00:00 or off)
Select program C or 3
And repeat above.

Keep track of the start times of each program as 12 zones running for 10 min will add up to 120 min or 2 hours total. So if Program A/1 starts at 6am it will finish at 8 am. Set program B/2 start time at 11am. Them select the specific area/zone you want to run again will water the area a second time. Just remember to leave the other areas you don't want to water Set at 00:00 or off. Repeat through all the programs and you off to enjoy your day. Cheers

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.

I have a 6 station orbit timer and I have problem with station 2 odd days coming on again after station 4 odd days the time is set to come on at 6 am and run for 60 min an10 min after it shuts off to start...


I am somewhat confused about your station numbers. How many stations do you have? What is Ihappening with stations 1, 3, 5, 6?
Regardless, this is probably what is happening.
No matter how many stations you have, YOU ONLY PUT IN ONE START TIME. That one start time begins the cycle that starts with station 1 and proceeds to the other stations based on your station RUN times.
If you have one start time of 6:00 am, and a run time of 60 minutes for each zone, then
At 6:00 am station 1 starts.
at 7:00, station 1 shuts off & station 2 starts.
at 8:00, station 2 shuts and station 3 starts, etc.
You are not programming the individual start times for each station.
If you put in more than one start time, the timer remembers and will run all stations then go back and begin again and if there is a third start time, it will begin a third time.

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.
