Zone 2 valve turns on and off repeatedly

I have 5 zones, and the only change I have made is to replace a few sprinkler heads on several zones. Everything was working fine until one morning zone 2 came on with the timer and started shaking the whole house. I went outside to see that the water was turning on and off over and over until I turned off the zone. If I manually turn on the zone, I do not have this problem. It only occurs with the timer. All other zones are working fine. Any advice will be much appreciated. Thank you!

It sounds like the timer's bad. I've seen this a few times on the RainDial timer.

That could be. It is a Champion “water champ” professional. Do you think that could cause just one zone to have troubles?

Try moving the number 2 wire to another slot that doesn't have problems at the controller. Do you still have the problem?
