    Hi Fred,

    Just to be sure, I would test them one more time separately:
    1. remove Zone B wires from your RainMachine and turn Zone A ON
    2. remove Zone A wires from your RainMachine and turn Zone B ON

    If you see two valves running during any of these tests, there might be a short between your valves someplace other than in your RainMachine. Which outputs are you connecting your Zone A and Zone B? Do you have a Master Valve configured?

    Istvan - Many thanks for the advice.  I did run through those steps and found that both valves worked properly.  Irrigation folks came out yesterday. After a lot of digging, discovered that they had cross-connected the 2 zones with pipe when they made the earlier changes.  Problem had nothing to do with the controller, valves or wiring!
