How to Troubleshoot a Hose Faucet Timer with No Display
Does your timer have no display?
Let’s do some troubleshooting.
Always make sure that:
- Remove the battery tray by squeezing the tabs on each side of the battery tray and pulling. Also, don’t forget to push the tray back in tightly and as far as it will go when done. Remember, the tray needs to be tight in order to keep out moisture, dirt and debris.
- The timer has new alkaline batteries in it.
- Batteries are in the correct direction.
- Rechargeable batteries do not provide an adequate power source to run Orbit timers. Alkaline batteries are recommended.
- The timer is drained and stored in a warm dry place before temperatures fall below 32 degrees F.
Push the reset button located between the dial and the manual button. All of the icons on the display should come on for a minute (see below).
Important Tip: Make sure the screen washer is clean and inserted into the hose faucet side of the timer and the battery tray is pushed in all the way.
Does your Timer Have a Partial Display or display fades after showing?
