All 5 valves in the box not working, others are fine.

Hi all,

All 5 valves in this box all of a sudden stopped working (after getting rid of a bamboo root in it). But I can still manually turn it on by turning the solenoid or the bleeder. The controller still opens the other valves in a different box. Is it because of the wires got loosen? How to find out and how to fix please? I know nothing about sprinkler, just reading through old posts, but cannot find similar issue.

Thanks!

You probably cut the wires. I've done more than once thinking the cable was a root. Backtrack the wire at the valves until you see where you cut it.
It sounds like you were cutting inside the box so that's probably where it is.

I didn't see any cut wires. But I will check more carefully tomorrow again.
