Program settings lost after power failure

I have a Pro-c controller. After a power failure the progrmed settings go crazy and must reprogram.
Is there any fix for this? I would like for it to resume with out having to reprogram run times.

I don't know how old your controller is but Hunter claims all their controllers have a non-volatile memory. Which means the controller retains the programming forever even without power. I'm not even sure when Hunter incorporated this feature.

Try taking out the back up battery and unplug the controller for a couple of minutes. See if that resets your programming back to where it was.

Older SRC controllers needed a backup battery to retain programming - maybe old Pro-C controllers are the same - in any event, keep a fresh backup battery installed in the controller, and don't unplug it in the winter
