Imperial Valet Timer

Hi:
I have an Imperial Valet Timer. It was working well for over 15 years. Since last week in the Auto mode the timer and the day dials work but the station dial does not buge at the set time the sprinklers do not come on. If I move the station dial beyond the off position manually then the dial moves automatically to station #1 and the sprinklers come on and the unit cycles through all the stations as programmed.

I reset day and time etc but no luck. Any help will be very welcome.

Thanks
Gee

You might consider a repair service. This controller uses line voltage and soldered connections.

Microswitch

Thank you.

Might be cheaper to buy a new unit as the controller is already very old.

15 years you say?

Definitely Replace the controller.
