Irrigation System problem
« on: January 14, 2016, 12:50:43 am »

Hi, I purchased a Orbit 6 Station Timer (91876) and 3 Orbit sprinkler valves.

I have connected all and programmed the timer......... easy, but when the timer started the valves opened all was well until shut off time came.  The valves will not shut off.
I have tested everything many times but the valves will not shut off!

I turned the timer power off and then and only then the valves shut off.

What can be the problem..... it appears the timer is keeping the valves open.

Can anyone help ?

Cheers,  John

This forum is only for Vera controlled devices, not generic sprinkler help.

Hi Terryn

  See http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,30727.msg271521.html#msg271521

  It appears this is a recurring problem for this specific sprinkler controller.
