    I recently noticed two zones just spitting water instead of staying on when in "automatic" mode. I pulled one valve apart, cleaned it and it still isn't working right. I can hear the solenoid on the other zones that are working, clicking but on these zones the solenoid goes much slower. I replaced one valve with a Rain Bird and it now works fine. I thought it might be the solenoid so I replaced it on the other valve and it still is just spitting water. I took the valve apart, cleaned it, inspected it for damage, put it back together but it still isn't working right. Any ideas?

    Age of Irritrol valve? Part number? Photos?

    Knowing Dallas it sounds like a 205 richdel. What color is it and does it have screws on the top?
