Rain Bird help

Hi, I have a Rain Bird ESP 6. All my zones are coming on and working fine except zone 1. I can turn the valve on manually(at the valve), but it is not responding to the control box. Any suggestions would be helpful. We just moved into this house and I'm trying to get the sprinklers squared away thanks to the help

Try switching the wire of the bad valve in the terminal section of the controller with one of the good valve wires that is working. If the same valve doesn't work in the new terminal location, the wiring to that controller needs to checked/redone or the solenoid replaced (not hard or expensive). If it does work in the new terminal, I hope you have a spare terminal but you would have to reprogram using that new terminal zone number. aloha
