Could be a stuck open valve- If your not familiar with these systems, I would call the homeowner - they probably have a company that already maintains the system and I wouldnt see why you should pay for the repair unless it was any fault on your part.

Perhaps that first zone is staying on? The timer could be cycling thru the next 2 zones but since the first valve will not close, it stays on untiul the systems shuts down the pump?

No clue about the controller or the zone valves. It was working fine on Saturday, but I noticed over the past 2 days that is wasn't cycling through the zones. We are renters and the landlord installed the system, but if you tell me where and what to look for I can check on these things. It is a Sears pump and I know how to program it and prime it but thats about it.

It sounds like a problem with your controller. What type of controller is it. Are you sure that it is programmed correctly? Did it work before and just started happening?

Or it could be a problem down at the valve or short in the wiring. ARe all 3 zone valves located in the same box

1 out of 3 zones working

Only one zone out of 3 is working. The timer is working but one zone is getting watered 3 times. It is not switching to the other 2 zones.
