New Hunter Rain-Clik does not turn off sprinkler

My old Rain-Clik (wired, not wireless) stopped turning off the sprinklers after rain and the dry test button did not stop them either. I got a new Rain-Clik but it does not turn off the sprinklers when I dry test. Is there something inside the controller (Hunter Pro-C) that might have failed and that I could test? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Is the sensor bypass switch on the faceplate of the controller in the bypass position?

Did you remove jumper plate when connecting wires?

jumper, bypass

Thanks for the suggestions.
The jumper plate was not there. I guess it was removed when the previous sensor was installed.
I moved the slider from bypass to the active position after I started single station watering but before I did the dry test.

Read the hunter manual, because there is a function of the controller that when you turn on manually the rain sensor is bypassed. I have had this happen. It depends how it is turned on if the sensor works.

That is how it used to be :thumbsup:

Solved - used wrong controller function to test

You are right - the MANUAL - SINGLE STATION function bypasses the sensor (manual page eight). When I dry test using MANUAL - ALL STATIONS, the sensor turns off the sprinkler.
Thank you!
