I Have A Richdel Lawn Sprinkler Control That Operates 6 Zones. When In Automatic Mode Now, And The Timer Turns On The First Zone, It Remains There, And Never Moves On To The Next Zone. What Is Causing This? I Can Move The Zones Manually, But I Need That Automatic Operation As I'm Out Of Town A Lot.
