Auto Cycle won't shut off

I have a four zone system. When I use manual mode the system goes through the four zones and shuts off - great. However, when I set it to AUTO the system goes through the four zones then repeats itself - it doesn't stop. I have each zone set to 30 minutes; I have only one cycle set up.

How many start times have you set up? You do know that you need only one start time.

Auto Cycle won't shut off

Replying... each valve has it's own start time. Valve 1 starts at 3:30; valve 2 at 4:00; valve 3 at 4:30; valve 4 at 5:00. I then have each valve set to run for 30 minutes. At 5:30 valve 4 shuts off but then valve 1 starts all over again.

What boots said. Erase all the start times but number 1. Then the valves run in sequence. The way you have it set up it's going to run thru all the valves 4 times in a row.
