I am currently in contact with support who thinks it may be a faulty ac adapter but I still want to throw it out to the community to see if I am not thinking of something…
I am coming from a Hunter XC controller. 7 zones. All zones operating correctly. I removed the Hunter, and installed the Rachio inside the rachio waterproof case. Wired it all up. No wires touching, no loose wires, all in the correct place. Setup went correctly with the android app. Connected to wifi fine. Now to set up zones.
When I went to setup zone 1, it starts the zone. Water sprays for 2-3 seconds shuts off and then the rachio reboots. I get a fault detection for zone 1. It allows me to continue with setup once rebooted. On to zone 2. Runs for 2-3 seconds… Fault. On and on
All 7 zones run for 2-3 seconds, shut off and the rachio reboots.
The solenoids work fine because they are turning on and off before the reboot. All the wiring is dry and properly installed.
I then unhooked everything and reinstalled the Hunter and all the zones operated correctly. All normal.
Reinstalled the Rachio and Fault City.
I tried plugging the rachio adapter directly to an outlet. Fault
Tries wiring different zones to different terminals. Fault.
Tried to run a zone with the common wire unplugged. NO REBOOT. Obviously the valve was not activated but it did not reboot.
Any suggestions??? Could it be the adapter? I get 4 lights after the unit reboots. It seems though as soon as it turns on a zone it shuts off.
ANY suggestions would help… Thanks!
