Valve turns off after only 30 seconds

Hello, I need troubleshooting tips on my sprinkler issue. It seems that using manual watering on the sprinkler timer, 4 out of 9 stations are only watering for 30 seconds each, even though it's set for 2 min. I have a new orbit 57950 and on the display I don't see any fault error message when each of those 4 zones is turned on from the timer. I thought it was the timer going bad, that's why I replaced it.

Thanks in advance

What happens when you set it for 3 minutes? Does it still turn off after 30 seconds or does it run 1 min 30?
I know some timers run 30 seconds if you set them for 1 minute. I can't say I've seen what you've described though.
They don't keep the same time in China that we do here.
