To: ***** ***** knows about these things:
this might be something different. I have a Rain Bird RC-7Bi irrigation unit that I have used for many years without any problem now that it isn’t working properly I need some help. The unit runs fine when I roll to section 1 ( or for that matter ) any other section. I have all the necessary buttons in as per the AM times I want it to start up. I am going in the correct sequence and ending at the rest station which is what it should do. I can’t figure out how to set the hour dial. Do I put it in or near the current time or do I put it in the time I want it to start. The hour dial (clock is working) now. Last put it on at 1:00 to see if it is working and it is. I put the clock an hour ahead to see if it would work and it is, so what can I possibly be doing wrong. All stations work when done manually but yesterday I set it for Friday and it did not work. Anyone know. I hate to spend 80.00 for something that is probably simple. When it hits one of my start buttons will it start. I can’t do it now because I watered the grass earlier but the buttons read Saturday and Wednesday. If it wasn’t working I would blame the fuse but since it is working I don’t believe it could be the fuse.

Since you can't find someone perhaps a (slow step by step instruction might help) OR GIVE ME SOMEONE ELSE. I set it last night to see if it would work this morning and even checked the fuse. The fuse is good. I reset it for sunday morning to see if it would work.
