Stopped working over night


#1

Everything worked fine all season then went to manually turn on sprinklers and nothing. Blue light on controller everything seems to work but no watering


#2

Do you have a master valve or rain sensor?


#3

No master valve and rain sensor is disconnected. Worked one day and the next day nothing since


#4

Did someone shut the irrigation water off?

Did the program get disabled by accident or the sensor enabled by accident?

Did you have any work done around the house?


#5

Water is on no yard work done. Tried to manually run zones blue light comes on the rachio but no sprinklers so i know the unit is online. Thanks


#6

Do you have a voltmeter?

Check the output when zone 1 is turned on. Red lead on zone 1 and black lead on the common. You may have to strip the wires back a little to make contact with the wire while there in the terminals.

If there is output, check ohms across the wires with no output. Reading should be between 25-60 ohms.

@Chief0322 – do you know if the rain sensor is wired into your common wire? If so, disconnecting it might have caused the issue you’re experiencing.

Are you able to manually open a valve?

Found the problem. Broken rain sensor wire. Thanks for all your help!!
