Hunter Pro-C Front Panel

How to Replace a PRO-C Front Panel

Note: The Pro-C controller is truly modular in design. This means that most components of the controller can be removed and replaced if needed. For the newer style Pro-C (blue panel and buttons) the part number for the front panel is 821501. The part number for the older style Pro-C controllers (green buttons) is 526200.

Steps 1 Steps 2
Valve and Boxes

To remove the Pro-C's front panel, start by removing all power from the controller. Unplugging the transformer or shutting off the circuit breaker will be necessary to do this properly.

Valve and Boxes

Open the front panel similar to how the controllers door opens, this should expose the battery compartment on the back of the front panel.

Steps 3 Steps 4
Valve and Boxes

Locate the gray ribbon cable in the upper right corner on the back of the front panel.

Valve and Boxes

Disconnect the ribbon cable from the back of the front panel by carefully pulling the plastic cable connector off the back of the front panel.

Steps 5 Steps 6
Valve and Boxes

Locate the Hinge Release switch below the ribbon cable connector on the back of the control panel. Push down on the white tab, the hinge pins will retract and allow the front panel to come free from the cabinet.

Valve and Boxes

After the panel is removed you can reverse this process to install the new face panel.

Needed a replacement for my control panel due to lightening. This fit the bill, and given shipping was free and the price was very competitive I place my order. Hoping it arrives as quickly as advertised.

Required due to front panel failure. Tried the outlet, bought a new transformer, and now getting a new faceplate. Current system is 10 years old.

I have a Hunter pro-c with 6 stations. In manual or normal run mode none of the solenoids are energized although the display shows it is watering. Is the problem the controller or the plug in modules?

My current controler' calendar has run out and I can't up date it to conform with the current year. Unit is starting up again after running once in each zone. What can I do?
Dave R on Jun 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Have the same problem
what does bypass mode do?
A shopper on May 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I believe this applies to the rain sensor if one is fitted. Bypass will ignore the rain sensor.
Unit was in 'Run' mode and someone turned the water off at the source. The modules, that lock into the box, where the pump wires go are charred. Would the burn out of the modules prevent the pumps from burning out? I'm not sure how long it has been in the 'Run' state and the time the water was turned off.
Veeeee F on Jun 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No it would not damage your unit for it to run with no water flowing through the system. My system has had the pump throw the breaker several times in the past and it's run for weeks at a time without watering and it has never damaged the panel. The panel simply provides 24 volts to the valves or relay and they don't care if there's water running through the pipes or not. If the wires are charged it's likely due to a power supply issue..
what is the diff in a 300 or 400 front panel ?
brad o on Jun 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Check the ribbon that connects to the other side where all of your stations are wired in. One of these models fits a single row of pins in he door and the other model fits a double row of pins that plug into the ribbon Be sure to determine which version you have and let them know. The older model has the single row of pins.
My Pro C controller has no indication it is powered up but the transformer output is 24 volts. It is a 12 station outdoor controller. Do you think replacing the door will solve the problem?
A shopper on Mar 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Verify that you have power going to the transformer there is a reset button on the face plate backside also make sure the gray ribbon is pushed in all of the way if you do all that and nothing shows up you need a new face plate sometimes they are underneath warranty
How do I get an operational manual?
Jim M on Jul 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Just do a google search for "Hunter pro-c manual". The first result is the manual.
Hi folks,
It appears that we had a power surge in our neighborhood in Bee Cave, TX and the our Hunter Pro-C was a casualty. The only number I could find was inside the cover door (700765). I suspect the PCB needs replacement. Is the Hunter 526200 PRO-C Controller Front Panel the correct part (we have 10 stations and the controller is in the garage (indoor)?
Thomas L on Mar 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There are two different front panels I first ordered the 821505, when my system met Mr. Lightining, but it didn't fit. Some years ago there was a redesign, and my system dated before that change. The latest version, 821505, didn't work. I had to order a different part number: 526200, the older version. You just need to be sure when your system was built, and order the correct version. My system was purchased and installed in 2011. If yours is much newer you might need the other panel.
Does this front panel work for the hunter model pcc600i?
eric c on Jul 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I found while the pro c hunter controllers all appear the same extetnally, there are specific controllers for specific models. I had to call hunter to secure the correct number controller panel. The ribbon cable on the back varies as does the solar selection option. I suggest calling hunters free teck number and asking them to prevent return shipping expenses like I incurred!
Does it come with conneting wire with 20 pins?
AFZAL S on Jul 10, 2018

will this panel replace a PC-300 model?
A shopper on Apr 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Have this Question too
Can Front panel # 821501 be used to directly replace Front panel #526200?
The front panel I have is #526200 which is no longer working due to a lightening surge.
So, because I have to replace the panel, I was thinking of replacing it with Front Panel #821501 which has the Solar Sync circuitry directly built in. This way I can upgrade my system next year with the addition of a Solar Sync Sensor.
But I would only get the #821501 (with the Solar Sync circuitry) if this front panel was a direct replacement of the #526200 with the same exact Ribbon Connector. Thank you.

my controller enables valves when the system is turned off why?
steve on Oct 13, 2018
My original controller is a Pro-C PCC-900i, 9 station. I purchased a replacement 526200 Front Panel from you some years back. I now need another replacement front panel. Can I now use the new 821501 Front Panel as a replacement?
John K on Jul 14, 2018
My Hunter Pro-C front panel gets moderately hot to the touch (top left corner, next to the dial) and has a hot, plasticky smell. Is that normal, or is there an electrical problem? Thank you.

I programmed my controller but when setting days to water it does not show what the book says it should. The book says a rain drop should display above days to water but it shows blank. Is it set correctly even without the drop?
