New to Rachio, and have learned a lot in the community. I have what I hope is a simple wiring issue, and hope to take advantage of the group wisdom, please. I have looked through many postings, and have not found where I may have gone wrong
I installed the Rachio 3 over the winter, replacing a RainBird. The system was closed for the winter; at that time everything worked as it has for years. When the sprinkler company came to open the system last week, none of the zones worked. Here is what I have done…
*Took the wiring out and re-attached
*Ensured the Advanced Wiring “Neither” button is checked
*Manually opened valves (water is flowing)
*Checked wiring with meter:
…28 volts when zone is on; 5-6 volts when the zone is off
Below are photos of the RainBird and Rachio setups. The gray wire with wire nuts on the RainBird is the rain sensor, which is not connected to the Rachio.
Thank you for reading this, and thank you very much for your help!
