Control Valve

New System! Valve for #3 Zone remains open when testing all valves. Will only shut off when the controller is in off position.

Couple of questions. Have you checked the orientation of the valve (ie is it installed with the flow arrow pointing the proper direction). Second, does the system have a master valve? If the system has a master valve, then that explains why it goes off with the system off. How long has the system run before the problems were found? Did valve 3 start closed, open when supposed to and then never shut off or did it open as soon as you put water to the system?
