Replace and/or reset

No, I haven't tried reset, but I will and if that doesn't help I now feel better about replacing it. THANKS a lot for your help. Oldsguy

Have you tried resetting the controller? If it still acts up after doing a reset then go for a new controller.

There won't be any issues replacing an ESP-8 with a new ESP controller.

more than a brand name is needed - model number helps - photos help even better

Trying to revive and old rainbird system that works "Half-way"

I have an old rainbird system (about 10 years) old. It is stuck in on position. Using master switch I can turn it on and it cycles through it's 6 cycles watering fine. After the 6th cycle it continues running but no water coming out. I have to turn it off with the master switch. (there are actuually 8 cycles and the last 2 are not wired, contrary to the manual instruction, but this system has worked ok for 10 years). I can remove the circuit board. Is there any way to get it repaired? I would just replace the whole system except I am afraid I will find that the wiring inlet holes are in different places on the box and I will get involved in a major wiring job. The only help rainbird offers is buy a new system. Any advice appreciated. Oldman
