The Dig Timer quit turning on!
I bought this timer this season in hopes it would work as well as the old Dig timer which was black with a square top and took two 9volt batteries to run. But sadly this timer has stopped turning on, leaving a patch of the garden dry.
I brought it in the house, got out the instructions, put in a new battery, and carefullly followed the programming instructions and got nothing. I have a friend who is a wizard at these kind of mechanical failures, usually saying something like the orifice is plugged, but I am not so good at taking things apart and getting them back together properly. But the main issue is that the timer should work for more than four months and that is a huge disappointment and $40 gone after $5 worth of work.
So beware of this product. It was an analog timer which i like better than digital as it's less confusing and has less electronics to go wrong, but in this case, a bad choice.
However as an addendum, I called their 800 service number and answered the questions and was told to send in the timer for a replacement. So it's not all bad.
