I am having the same issue. My flex schedule did not run this morning and when I tried to set the start time later so it would run I got the “Error - the request could not be completed” message.
Does highlight a major design flaw in the system and how dependent we are on Racio and their servers. Can only water manually in 3 minute increments. Not realistic when I have 13 zones.
same here, flawless until today ;-(
Hope that this will be fixed without requiring physical access to device (for those of us traveling!)
We all are having this same issue. I think there is an issue at Rachio Central
I called there phone tech support
Dumps to voicemail and says they are in winter hours support mode. This contradicts what there web-site says below. You can use manual mode and water a zone for 3 min…this is very disappointing to say the least. Is there a way to water manually for more than 3 min at a time ?

I have the same issue. Good to know it’s not my unit but disappointing anyway. I just got mine yesterday and already having issues due to its designed cloud dependency. Err…
Same issue. Rachio you need to get on this…
I tried using the web app. My browser indicates that it’s trying to connect with ps7.pubnub.com. There are no responses to pings for that address. I expect there is at least one server down.
@franz @emil Experiencing the issue as everyone else Request failed, please check your connection. Schedule did not run today. Manual run not working as well on my Gen 2 model. Gen 1 Iro shows that it watered successfully. Not sure if that info helps in anyway.
I’m getting the exact same error. I put my system on standby mode a while ago before getting repairs done on my irrigation system. Tried to take it off standby mode this morning and now I’m seeing this same error.
