TORO ECx Sprinkler system


I had a bit of an Oops yesterday. I accidently hit the wall mounted timer in the garage and it fell to the floor leaving 3 dislodged wires where it used to be mounted. Regardless of what the zones used to be, I simply took the 3 wires and attached them in the back to the snap in connectors which are labeled 1, 2, 3, etc.

Nothing's working

Any advise?

were the power cord wires yanked out as well? does it power up? usually the white wire is a common and the colored wires are for the valve zone power.

How many zones do you have ?

If only three wires it would appear two.
So your wires would connect to C, Z1, Z2

What color are your three wires?

If you've got power to the controller and it appears OK then like PJmax said, you've got two zones. The key is figuring out which wire is the common as it has to be connected properly for either zone to work. The common wire should attach to the terminal marked COM. The Toro manual says white is the common wire color but it could be anything depending on how your system was wired/installed. Then your zone wires will attach to the terminals marked 1 and 2.
