    I need your help! I have a Rainbird ESP-6TM Controller. The Sprinkler heads don't popout with water. The controller has power but the output power is always 0. Fuse is also good. I also used the spare fuse. I tried to remove the battery to reset, but it did not work. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for all of your help!
    By the way, my house got some T-storms as well as power interruptions recently.

    Allow for the possibility of a dead controller.

    Storms (or garage door openers) can do a number on these clocks. Pull the
    battery, unplug from wall...wait overnight. They DO have surge protection,
    but I've fried a lot of clocks that had protection, also. The transformer is
    probably fine, but the surge creeped in the "back door". The pros in lightning
    prone areas use 14 gauge wire with multiple loops to absorb the "hit". A new
    clock is probably cheaper than the repair.:cry:
