How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

If the system doesn`t seem to be running, check that the controller is set to auto or run. Remember: while scheduled settings may be programmed, they are not activated until the controller is set to auto. If you see that the controller is set to run, the start time may not have been saved.
When the sprinkler zones do not turn on at all, it is generally a problem with the electrical signals running from the controller to the valve solenoids. More rarely, it is caused by a faulty valve that needs to be rebuilt or replaced.
The TMC-212 provides three independent watering programs, designated A, B and C, and are established by specifying: what day(s) of the week to water – called watering days, what time to start watering – called start time and how long each station runs – called station time.
If your sprinkler system isn`t working in all zones, chances are the problem is localized to the one or two zones that aren`t working. Each zone has its own valve, so that`s a good place to look. Head out to each valve and see if it is opened fully, broken, rusted, or stuck. Turn valves to the left to open them more.
Whichever valve you are turning on, it is always safe to manually turn on sprinklers and make sure to open it slowly, give it time to pressurize before opening it all the way.
The Reason why a Controller Repeats a Cycle Over and Over

The answer is usually there are too many programmed start times — program start times are being confused with zone (station) run times. Some controllers have up to eight start times per day to a single program (e.g. A).

Often the valves are located inside one or more in-ground valve boxes. The tops of these boxes will be at ground level, and these, too, are usually fairly easy to spot and access. The valve box, or sometimes the valves themselves, are sometimes buried underground.
If you turn the solenoid counter clockwise 1/2 turn, the valve should come on in a matter of seconds. You should be able to hear the water flowing through the pipe before you see it come out of the sprinklers.
Unplug your console`s power cable and leave it unplugged for a few minutes. Use a USB cable you know is good (try others if the first doesn`t work) to connect your controller to the system. Plug your Xbox back in and turn it on using the power button on the system.

Highlights. The poor rotation may be caused by debris trapped in the sprinkler head. Your water filter might need to be cleaned or replaced. Poor water pressure can affect sprinkler head rotation.

Toro jar top valve quit working
ANSWER : When I work on a valve in the field we usually just leave the valve body in place and change out the parts from a new unit. As long as the valve body is intact as you have described this should remedy whatever problem you are having. Make certain all wire connections are good and that you are getting 24 – 28 volts to the valve selenoid when the timer has selected that station.

Toro recycler will start until primed gas is consumed.
ANSWER : I had similar problem and cleaned the spark plug and that seemed to have worked, but I think that may be a temporary fix because the engine still seems to be running unevenly. I feel that it must be a larger problem with the carb. If anyone can help this novice to adjust the carb or clean both carb and filter, or offer other solutions I would appreciate your assistance.
