OK So let me get this straight...One of your zones stays on even with the controller at the "Off" position? Right? It could be a possibility that either your soleniod is "dead" for some reason(we have lots of those around here) or you could have debris in your diaphram. Let me know if I got that right....

** Alex...you've been so patient with me and I'm not doing a very good job at describing what my problem (was) and I thank you very much for your time and patience. Where I am right now is that the control box has been swapped out and a new solenoid has been installed in the circuit breaking culprit and all seems to be normal. I'm going to monitor the temp on the transformer and when access to a meter comes along, be sure that there is not too much power coming into it from the service. But for now, it's all working.

Many more thanks to you!

Bob

Is the transformer still hot?

+++ Pretty warm to the touch.

Well, It is normal for the transformer to be a little warm, but not hot to the touch. Is there any thing large on the same electrical circuit?

Also Bob,
Where did you get the new controller from? Did you check out SW's prices?

(This may be a second reply...if the first one shows up.)

Alex;

The circuit also has my outdoor lighting transformer and my irrigation well pump on it.

I checked the temp again today and was able to leave my hand on the transformer...it was quite warm...but seemingly not as HOT as it had been getting for some reason.

I did check SW for a new ESP-6 and while the $119.00 price was very good -- especially as RB wants that much plus for a rebuilt -- I opted for a $105 deal here in town for a new one. Saved time and shipping.

Thanks again!

Bob
