How can I clear all the programming and reset my Rain Bird ESP-Me sprinkler timer back to the factory default settings?
If you are unsure about the programming settings or are experiencing erratic behavior that might have been caused by lightning or a power surge, you may want to clear all the programming and reset the Rain Bird ESP-ME sprinkler timer back to the factory default settings. The following steps will show you how.
Warning: before attempting this, remember that all of your program settings will be completely cleared. The current date and time will not be affected.
Turn the dial to Seasonal Adjust.
Press and hold the left and right arrow buttons at the same time for at least 3 seconds.
Until you see the word “CLEARED” on the screen.
Turn the dial back to AUTO RUN
Your ESP-Me is now restored to the factory default settings. Program A now has a single start time of 8:00 am, with run times of 10 minutes each on stations 1, 2, 3, and 4. It is also set to water every day of the week.
