Rachio 3 stopped working

Controller worked fine all of last season. Tried to re-start the system for this season and we’re not getting any water.

The app works fine.
The station light indicator on the controller shows up properly.
No water on any of the stations.

Water is on.

Could the controller be faulty?

@celloshred - could be a broken common wire or a rain sensor that is tripped that is installed in-line on the common wire. Get a multi-meter and test resistivity down the common line and back on one of the zones when those two wires are disconnected from the Rachio to test.

Do you have a master valve in the system? If so and that valve is not working no water will come out.


Turn on the valves manually and see if water comes out to rule out a non timer issue.
