Nelso Smartzone EZ zone controller problem

Controller goes off every night no matter what program is on. Every other day(odd/even), every three days(Interval). This happens on Program A,B and C.
I removed the battery overnight and reprogram. Same result.
I unplug it and remove the battery overnight and reprogram it. Same result.
I'm up for suggestions.
Thanks.

You're either programming it wrong or the controller's shot.

I am not familiar with this controller, but most controllers will run every program that is set regardless of where the Program switch is. The program switch is for programming and manual operation.

Program buttons

This controller has two sets of "program" buttons. One is for actually programming the device. You can set the Program A, B and C buttons individually and then, "program" each while on the "program" selection.The other 3 have various stored programs you can switch to during the year.
The controller was working fine up to a point and then it wasn't. There wasn't any programming modification done between it's working correctly and not working correctly.

Check your owners manual (available online) and make certain that every program in the controller is not active at all times. All programs running is the norm, and switching from one program to another is not. The norm allows systems to have a separate schedule for less-often shrub watering.

Probably easier to swap it out.
Thanks.
