LawnGenie System Won't Turn on - Model 406HLG

We live in a rental home. It has a LawnGenie irrgation system - Model 406HLG. Due to the drought here in California, I had to turn the system off and change when it went on. It had a 6 spoke skip-a-day dial. Last weekend, I replaced it with a 7 spoke dial and inserted skip-a-day pins in the Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday spokes since we are only allowed to water on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. I moved the time dial counterclockwise to set to current time.

Last Wednesday the sprinklers went on. However they didn't go on on Friday. Today is Sunday so it will be interesting to see if it does tonight. One issue is the Circuit Selector Knob doesn't have an arrow in the middle. It looks like that is supposed to be pointing at the closest time on the time dial. I'm guessing its pointing to it but who knows. I've tried moving the Circuit Selector Knob but that seems to turn the system on and never go off. Trying to figure out what is wrong.

That clock is dead simple in design. It's far more likely to stop working from user interference than it is to fail on its own.

Does it still keep time?

It appears to. Its turning. I just wonder if the Circuit Selector Knob needs to be turned to a certain position for it to turn on.

That knob should have a notch on the edge of the wheel and an arrow in the center. Point the arrow at the center of the time dial and the notch should softly click into place.
