old school rb controller-Hard wired sucks

A first for me to see this. Some may know it well? I'm use to the other rain bird rc mech controller

In any case I was at a restaurant- system hadn't been touched in years. This controller was just hanging off the wall . I freaking bumped it and all of a sudden sparks start -a flying! 2 Rooms over I'm hearing screams ! A gfi popped off and shot some sparks too.

I was pissed .. serious code violation. ... The wires were just disconnected in the back of the controller only half a inch from eachother and they were live...

Got a new controller in- used a different plug and circuit..

I think I have the manual for that, and a more in-depth repair guide you will not find.
