Hunter SRC-900i Cycles Through Zones, Won't stop

I bought a replacement Hunter SRC 900i controller a few months ago and it has never stopped after the last zone completed. It has 8 zones and i'm only using 6. After zone 6 shuts off, Zone 1 starts again and it will cycle like this until the switch is set to OFF.

Pilot error

Hi, what you have described is a common mistake people make when programming their controller. There's a good chance that you have programmed more than one start time. You only need one start time then the stations will run in sequence. What people do is something like this, start time one 6 am, start time two 6:15 am, start time three 6:30 am and so on. If programmed this way the controller will restart after the last zone finishes. Check your start times on all programs, ABC. Only the 6 am start time is necessary. The zone run times tell each zone how long to run not the start times. Good luck!

Zones keep repeating until I turn SRC control box to OFF

Zones keep repeating until I turn it to OFF. I have only one time set. Also I have tried running all zones manually and they keep repeating until I turn it off. Can you tell me how to correct this? Do I need a new control box.

Check every program on that controller - they generally only do what you tell them to do
