Thanks JW. that was the 2nd thing I tested, I removed it and tested it function it is opening and closing normally. I 1st tested the valve with a test cord, works great. I have no power to the float switch, next component up the line is the timer, have no power from the timer to float switch but have power to the timer. Replaced timer still have no power to water circuit. I'm stuck now with no flow drawings. I have looked inside and out for wiring diagrams on the unit. who ever installed it must have removed them. Guess we need to lobby the politicians have appliance labels like bedding do not remove under penalty of law.
