Irrigation/Changing strart times from PM to AM


I have a Hardie Rain Dial controller for my sprinklers and flower beds. when I try to set the start times I am not able to change from PM to AM.  The manual says I can have up to 3 start times per day and states start times can be AM or PM but does not explain how to make that change.  Thank you in advance for your help.

Hey Stan, it is hard to tell, but as you go from am to pm, the display changes from AM to PM. Look closely, but the A changes to a P when you go from am to pm. Just hold the plus(+) button down and it will rapidly move the time for you. If you are at 11:59PM, hit the plus button one time, and it will show you 12:00AM. Likewise, if it is at 11:59AM, hit the button one time and it will change to 12:00PM. Good luck and have a great day.

I have been installing and repairing sprinkling systems since I was 15 years old. Have owned my own sprinkler system contracting business for over 26 years. It is basically the only job I've ever done, except for being a paper boy when I was young.
