If it is an irritrol 2400T thats easy to fix. Go online to sprinklerwarehouse and buy on. When it comes unsrew the bonnet. (Grey Ring) and pull out all the insides and top including the black ring. Then bring that outside to the bad valve. Unscrew the bad valve and then put in the new valve, into the old body (before putting the new guts in flush the valve. Also shut off the water before doing this) Then scew the bonnet on nice and tight, re wire, and turn on the water. If that dosnt work check your timer and wiring. HOpe that helps. Where are you located?

What kind of valve is it?

I would just replace the valve. Go to either Sprinkler Warehouse's online store and order the replacement before it gets too dry.

Thanks again!

Ok now I switched valve 6 & 7 and when I turn the water supply on zone 6 runs continuously while zone 7 stays off. Looks more and more like a bad valve / solenoid from the original zone 7. Agree? Thanks.

Irritrol Total Control 9 station. I disconnected the power and had the same behavior as before.

I unscrewed, cleaned and reassembled. The problem still persists. I also noted this situation (I assume this was like this before). It is the zone 7 valve that runs continuously in the "off" position. If I turn this valuve "on" then zone 6 begins to run continuously even though the zone 6 valve is "off".

All valves "off" - zone 7 runs continuously
Valves 1-6 "off", zone 7 "on" - zones 6 & 7 run continuously

Any idea why this happens?

Does the diaphragm just screw off by hand, or do you need any tools?
