Rain Bird RC-1260 - Not Advancing to Next Zone - Has to be manually moved from one zone to the next

My Rain Bird RC-1260 all of a sudden stopped advancing through each zone. I turned it on last night, went outside this morning and the first zone had been going all night. When I manually advance it the zone will get watered but it just stays in that zone until I manually advance to the next.

What part would I need to fix it and where would I buy it from?

Thank you.

Does the controller still keep the correct time of day?

It does not keep the correct time of day - it stopped at the time it was set to water - 10:30 p.m.

An irrigation supply house such as, Hydroscape, Ewing or John Deere Irrigation should have one. Or they'll ship one in from another store.

One of those would cost you over a hundred dollars, if you could find one. Rainbird doesn't even include those controllers in their parts breakouts any more.

Why did you tell the guy he needs a new motor if they're not available.

The guy says he needs a new motor, and you can still find it in a current price list, so maybe he lucks out, but for a hundred and change, it looks like a new controller is the way to go.
