Irrigation/hunter ec-400 bad?


we just recentantly moved in to this house. I've tried to set the water controller up water the lawn. I've downloaded the instruction for the ec-400 when I try to set the day/time it will only do the hours, I can't go to the minutes/am/pm. I tried to push the "arrow" button but I think it doesn't register. is the controller bad? this system was installed in appr. 2004.


If you are unable to get the controller to recognize a button you may attempt to reset the controller before replacing it. I am currently out of town and away from my computer and unable to download that user manual. I recommend that you call the Hunter support number 760-591-7383 as the support is top notch.  Thanks

I am able to answer any questions related to lawn irrigation systems and backflow devices. But pumps are not my speciality since they are not common in my area. Most of my product experience is in Hunter, Rainbird and Irritrol components.
