    Okay here's the deal I just started as a property manager at a condominium complex. I have 3 wells that supply the irrigation systems. There are 3 controllers all different all my heads are different models it's a mess (3 irrigation companys in the last 2 years!!!). Anyway I have gotten everything up and running except my one Weathermatic controller. I have tested all my zones and they all are up and running but now my controller will not run a program. I have set it numerous times but doesn't run, I can manually activate zones (sometimes) and I cannot reset the unit. Is my controller fried???? Any help would be appreciated cause my grass is dying. :cry: :cry: :cry:

    Do you have a voltage meter?

    LMCs are terrible.

    LMCs are notorious for going bad out of nowhere and this sounds like a classic case. I swap them out regularly, more than any other clock. Get a decent timer in there now--you'll need to soon than later regardless.

    The voltimeter could help you test it, but it's a moot point.
