I just don't understand why you are replacing things with out diagnosing the issue.

Didn't replace the pump.

Why did you replace the pump and relay without electrically testing everything out.

Get a technician in there.. and test everything out.

Craftsman 390.262653 Sprinkler pump won't shut off

I have replaced the pump start relay & the controller but pump continues to run though the stations are shut off. I have to shut off the power to the controller or the pump continues to run.

turning off the pump breaker and using a multimeter on the controller should have been done a long time ago

is your pump running right now , like 24/7? It's probably fried lol

Thankfully, I've been pulling the circuit breaker on this unless I'm actually (manually) watering the yard. :) I'm going to open the relay (Hunter PSR-22) and check for bugs,etc. Or, I may simply replace the damn thing.

The best thing to do here instead of speculating is to electrically diagnose it out

Use a multimeter- check for proper voltage at the controller> Turn zones on/ off and verify that voltage stops at the pump port when it is turned off.
check your relay ( Best to have a remote for this) . Diagnose that 24v is coming in and what ever 120 or 240 going out

Have you tried turning the controller off during a program? Does it shut the pump off? If it doesn't, try turning the power off to the timer. Once you turn the power off to the timer if it then shuts the pump off, it probably is a timer issue and not a relay issue. Im thinking that if the relay turns the pump on then its probably not the relay. I could be wrong on that but give it a try.

Good point. However, the pump runs even when the controller is turned off. And there are 8 zones and a controller with a maximum of 8 zones. This is a system that had run well for years until recently.

Other ideas?
