Hunter XC Controller problem

Ebart01August 27, 2011

First time posting!

I have a Hunter XC controller connected to 3 lines- the first two lines are for the lawn, and the third is for the shrubs. We had a power outage on the controller, and since power was restored I can't get the controller to recognize the third line in any of the menu options except "Start Times" (so no "Manual One Station", no "Run Times"). I set the start time, but nothing happened when it was supposed to start off. Anyone have a suggestion? The other two lines work fine.

try resetting the controller by disconnecting the back-up battery and cutting power to the clock for 1 to 2 minutes. that will reset the factory defaults and should cure the problem, if not, try moving the station wire to another terminal.

Ebart01 Did you find any resolution to the zone not being recognized? I am having the same issue, zone 3 wont show up anywhere. I am thinking of changing out the controller.
