Yes I really think that. If the flow control is open all the way the valve may not shut off. It was just a possibility.
If you think the controller's keeping the valve on, unplug the controller and see if the valve shuts off. Maybe disconnect the ground wire and see if it shuts off. If it stays on there's a problem with the valve. If it shuts right off then there's a problem with the controller.
The common wire is inside the bottom panel.
I asked what you meant by, "There are for some reason 4 stations on this one valve." but I didn't get a response.

reply to sounds like a valve




There are for some reason 4 stations on this one valve. I
have replace the selinoid and the diaphram. So do u really think that
if I turn down the flow down it will shut this station off and not allow
it to stay on or is it really the timer instead. Remember I had this
station at zero so it should have cycled right past it instead it stayed
on even after the whole system shut off.

I'm a little confused here. You say it didn't cycle past the zone and you also said the whole system shut off. How is this possible? Doesn't the Imperial have to cycle past all the zones to reach off?
What do you mean there's four stations on the one valve? Like a master valve? I didn't know the Imperial had a master valve option.
Then again I've never had the need.

Sounds like the valve to me. Turn the flow control down a bit and see if that helps.

Imperial Timer failure????

I too have the same timer with 6 stations. My issue is this: I went out by the pool and noticed that the station 4 was on when it shouldn't be on because the timer was off. I went to the timer and it was indeed off. I replaced the selinoid at the valve and the diaphram and it seemed to work. Mow this morning I have discovered it on again. I even place that station on zero minutes but it still went on and stayed on. The only way to get the station to shut off was to turn the main water off and on again. Is this time bad??? My last water bill was over $300. Help anyone.

If you are going to fix that thing, you need skills enough that you wouldn't even be asking questions. There was never any repair guide on these.

Think about it a bit, and ask whether you wouldn't be happier having it repaired by pros.
