How to make multiple runs for low voltage transformer

300 W transformer #590 313. A Home Depot purchase. I want to make 2 separate short runs using 12 ga. cable. Can I connect the 2 wires from each of of the two cables to the LOW and Com cable ports? One run is ~50' with between 50-100 watts. the other run is ~40' with between 40-70 watts. Each run is in opposite directions. Using the loop method is not feasible.

Yes, It will work fine splitting it into 2 runs connecting them together in the transformer. It will work better than running them all on one line. Sometimes running them all on one line the last light s dimmer than the first light. I was an electrician for 14 yrs. and I promise you it will work.

Always a good idea to check outlet with cheap circuit analyzer.
And move timer to different outlet to see if difficulties are outlet-specific.
Try timer at neighbor's house.
Having 3 defects in a row is unusual.

There are no repairs for defective timers.

Timer clock motors stop working for many reasons, bad manufacturing of plastic gears and power surge and dirt and reversed polarity among the causes.
Using household plug-in timer is typical solution since clock modules are not sold separately.

Hello, in order to turn your humidifier on with the furnace the 120 volts coming from your humidifer you must hook it up to a step down transformer, then the transformer will provide 24 volts to you humidistat and solenoid valve. So you need a wire from the HUM on your control board to transformer primary side and a wire from neutral on the board to primary side of transformer. Then you need low voltage wire from secondary side of transformer to humidistat from humidistat to humidifier.

My 600 watt 12 volt transformer timer for out door lighting does not keep time properly. HOw do I get and install a new timer?


1) Amazon sells 600Watt power pack:
http://www.amazon.com/Malibu-8100-9600-01-Voltage-Power-Transformer/sim/B002ZRPM4A/2

2) I bought new 300Watt Malibu power pack at Home Depot about 2 months ago.
Near the lighting section.
My new power pack has electronic time clock, so no more 'slow clock.'
I think Home Depot had 600Watt.
Lowes carries different brand.

3) Manuals for power packs at Malibu lights.com
http://www.malibulights.com/customer_service/owners_manuals.aspx

4) Tips for buying and taking care of power pack:
-Match up wattage of bulbs with wattage of power pack
-15 each X 20 watt bulbs = 300 watts, so install 300Watt power pack
-Installing a 500W power pack on 300W of bulbs will burn out bulbs and power pack.
-Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out or other bulbs will burn out and power pack will burn out.
-When working on bulbs, unplug power pack or it may burn out.
http://www.malibulights.com/guides_support/low_voltage_planning_guide/select_your_power_pack

5) How to install power pack.
Before unplugging old power pack, check which bulbs are not working.
Replace bulbs using phillips screwdriver.
Unplug power pack.
Notice how wires are connected to power pack, write down terminal connections.
Some power packs have three terminals ... extra terminal is for additional photoelectric eye.
Use pliers or screwdriver to disconnect wires.
New power pack has has same terminals.
Plug in power pack.
Read instruction manual before connecting wires.
Save instruction manual because a few years that manual won't be around as products change.

Find where the voltage source is controlled to turn the present lights on and off and disconnect. You need to retrofit a Malibu type voltage transformer that will provide the appropriate voltage; from what you say you want a transformer that provides the voltage of the 1.4 watt blue light, most likely 12 volts. When the switch that controlled the old lights is turned on, it will now provide voltage to the Malibu type transformer.
You can check out the Malibu web site for what's available or go to Lowes or Home Depot. Please let me know if you have questions.

Boosting output power


When you place the transformer in series you will be affecting the voltage on the output, placing them in parallel with give you the same voltage, but will increase the amperage output. Both transformers MUST be Identical. A switch must be used on the line side to disconnect Both simultaneously, for safety reasons.

If you don't have a volt meter, purchase one. I've seen them as low as $20.00 at Sears and even lower at Home Depot and other discount stores. The HUM terminals are most likely low voltage (24v). The "N" is the neutral. Assuming you have confirmed this is low voltage (24v, you will use HUM and "N" terminals. This control sequence is typically to allow for operation of your humidifier only when there is a call for your fan to run. The brown wires coming from your Humidifier are your low voltage circuit. One should be directly wired to "N". The other should be ran to your humidistat. The other side of the switch of your humidistat should be wired to the HUM terminal.
I hope you will find this helpful. Good Luck!!!!

Stinger Electronic Insect Killer Model# UVB45 will not work I put in a new light blub and it stll does not light up It was purchased on 5/05/09 at Home Depot. How do I return for repair?


Attached is a redesign for those interested in a permanent repair.
simply remove the old bulb and socket and starter. Purchase new standard rubberized bulb socket from Lowe's or Home Depot and connect with the socket and transformer primary in parallel. Neutral (white) to the white on the socket and the newly liberated black transformer (primary) wire. The Red or hot wire from the light-sense board then goes to the black on the socket. The other black from the transformer should already be connected to this wire. Purchase a blacklight bulb of the same type as the new energy saver flourescent bulbs in use in most homes. These can be found at specialty lighting stores and in some Home Depot or Lowe's stores. Place this new bulb in new socket and Voila. No more hassels!!!b12b882.jpg

Humidifier not working


Depending on the age, transformers do go bad. It will have a odor to it if it is burned out, I just checked and the doorbell transformer at home depot is sufficient to run the humidifer. Dont worry that it is 20VA instead of 10VA. The VA is just the load it can handle, the higher the number, the higher the load. The transformer at home depot is around $15 dollars. You will use the 2 outer of the 3 screw terminals for the low voltage. I hope the helps. Steve
