Station 2 & 3 Do Not Work!!!!
I purchased 2 of these units and in both cases only station 1 works. I set the stations to run consecutively for 20 minutes with a 5 minute break between the start of station 2 and station 3. Only station 1 activates. I even had an Orbit rep on the phone and he couldn't help me either. So what's the secret and what am I doing wrong? I have other Orbit single timers and know how to set them up. Any help is appreciated, otherwise, this expensive item is going back.

I had the same issue, but the tech had me push the RESET. A small hole on front of unit with tooth pick. Now it kicks on.
I only have experience with one of these units, but found that sometimes I had to press the right or left arrows more than once to advance or go back on the station. The dial does have to be set on "set time". The other thing I noticed was that it "defaults" stations rather strangely and I had to be very careful I was in the station that I chose. Each time I rotated the dial to set the next one, it would revert back to the prior station I set. Hope that helps.
This should be a very simple fix. Please call Orbit's tech support team at 1-801-299-5555. They can trouble shoot it while you are at your timer. Thanks!
