Vigoro 3015V Sprinkler Timer Internals and Valve DesignVeey good work JonC!
Your post is so wonderful that helped me greatly while I doing my repairing.
My Vigoro 3015 had a totally different problem. The location of my hose bibb is bad which resulted in the timer got wet fiarly easy. During our 1 week off time a small amount of water was leaking in on the LCD desplay and I can’t read it any more. After several hours of try I concluded I had to tear the case appart and clear the display surface. Right before I did that I found your post and immediately realized it was not reversible and I won’t be able to seal it back on as good as manufacturer orignally did.
I made another approach and patiently “cook” it in oven at 170 F (no and off every 5 minutes to avoid overheating).I am still half way done but I knew it was a better way because I could barely see the numbers now already.

Thanks so much!
