Customer Questions & Answers

I have now purchased this item twice, and with both, the sprinkler goes in one direction and then just stops. What am I doing wrong???

Asked by: Anonymous
My NO-REVERSE PROBLEM SOLVED. This has nothing to do with the "flipping wire" hairpin that hangs down and limit switch slip rings of stainless steel. You can test the sprinkler by flipping the "flipping wire" up and see if the head rotates 360 degrees. If not, screw the needle valve all the way in so it is hit by the moving diffuser solidly at the point of the needle. This should make the sprinkler head rotate 360 but it will never reverse, of course. Back off the needle screw. You have lost the plastic hammering part on the diffuser pin. You have my problem, no reversing. Look from one side and find the flat sheet metal that is L shaped with a bent over tang. Look just above the top most part of the hairpin "flipping wire". Reference Melnor 3910 sprinkler instructions for the Melnor terms below in the parenthesis. So, there is a stud or pin that points downward on the moving balance hammering weight (the "diffuser") and it hits the bent over tang on the larger and bigger flat sheet metal piece above where the limit switch and "flipping wire" assembly are located. The pin is above the very top of the ends of the "flipping wire" or hairpin. On the longer flat sheet metal with the bent over tang. the diffuser's pin hits this flat 3 mm horizontal by 8 mm vertical bent over tang to reverse reset the sprinkler using a hammering action of the moving "diffuser" on that tang. The problem is that the HARD plastic breaks off with time. You put a piece of short heat shrink tubing on the pin and shrink it down to increase the diameter slightly. That is a spacer. Cut the bottom flush with the bottom of this metal stud or pin on the diffuser. The pin on my older unit has a flat spot on one pin side, FYI. The pin is on the moving oscillating balance weight or diffuser and is molded right into it.. Take a hard blue plastic solderless connector terminal and pull the metal part out. Force the blue tubing over the heat shrink tubing on the pin. Cut the bottom blue plastic off flush with the pin. This pin and blue plastic should miss the top horizontal part of the sheet metal that is not part of the vertical bent tang area. It must pass over that top sheet metal flat area without hitting it. You can't drive nail in with a rubber hammer. It takes a solid metal hammer. This takes a hard plastic tubing piece on the pin to hit that tang and transfer the diffuser energy of motion to the head. That hammering then re-cocks or reverses the sprinkler head with that flit-flit-flit sound you used to hear. I am sorry but this is hard to describe but mine works fine now. HTH, Stefan

Should the sprinkler work automatically when you turn on the water or is there an on/off switch on the sprinkler? Water is going through the hose.

but not coming out the sprinkler
Asked by: Anonymous
I had trouble with water coming out the bottom as well. Remove the small mesh ball and rubber washer from the sprinkler's hose connector. I then used a rubber washer I had on hand and it works great. I'm not sure what the mesh ball did - looked like a diffuser but it didn't work for me.

Is each leg adjustable independently?

in other words, can it be setup on a hill and adjusted so it would be level.
Asked by: hillside
Each leg is adjustable from below the connecting strut. SO the top third is not, but the bottom two thirds are.
