Strange behavior with this RD600 sprinkler timer.
I have 3 programs set ( 3 separate valves), Those programs functions and
the zones get watered as scheduled.
BUT if I try to manually run a valve...
choose valve, +/- to determine time, push "manual" to start, the display
flickers for a moment then shows a flashing "OFF"...this indicates a short,
but since the zones/valves function from the programming I am not sure what
could be happening.
I redid all electrical connections ay the solenoids and used moisture proof
With this units...if "skip days" is set to 1, does that mean it skips one
day , the manual reads to make it sound like it will water every "one"
day...I suppose I could just set it and see when it waters..
I have a RainDial, but diff model. When you attempt to start it
manually is the main switch in the "run" position? On mine, if the
main switch is in the"off"position, it will not run at all. But it
also has never flashed anything.
Since it works fine in auto mode, I think you can rule out anything to
do with wire nuts, connections, etc. It would seem that something
would have to be wrong with the controller itself. Like when you
push the "manual" button it creates some kind of internal short.
Time to call the manufacturer.
Yes, 1 means water it every day. If it didn't, you could never set
it to water each day in skip mode.
