If you have a Holman 4/6/9 controller and the display looks ok, but it doesn’t seem to be working then the first thing to check out is whether the rain sensor display says ‘rain sensor wet’ or ‘rain sensor dry’.
If it displays a ‘wet’ message then it means that there is no 24v power going to the controller and therefore no power to operate solenoids.
There are a few things that could cause this:
1) check your RCDs in your meter box as if one of these has tripped then you won’t have power to the box.
2) check your fuse. Most likely a fault will have blown the fuse.
3) It may be that the transformer that converts 240V to 24V has died. Not much you can do here but replace the unit.
But before you call someone out do the ‘wet/dry’ check first!
