Timer clock not working. can it be replaced?


You posted under malibu power pack.

Power packs do not have repair parts.
Occasionally folks write fixya saying they took power pack apart, but nobody reports repairing transformer or timer.

'Harry' wrote fixya with helpful information.
His timer stopped working so he bought cheap plug-in timer, set power pack to override, and then plugged power pack into cheap timer.
Harry said his power pack has 5 year warranty and he was negotiating with Malibulights.com for replacement. No word how that came out.

Best I found are tips for next power pack that might save money:
The reason I add tips now, before power pack needs replacement is some fella wrote fixya.
He bought 500 Watt power pack to replace 300 Watt > thinking bigger was better.
Power pack burned out. Here's why:
a) Match wattage of bulbs with wattage of power pack
Lets say you have fifteen 20 watt bulbs = 300 watts, so install 300Watt power pack
b) Installing a 500W power pack on 300W of bulbs will burn out bulbs and power pack.
c) Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out or other bulbs will burn out and power pack will burn out.
d) When working on bulbs, unplug power pack or power pack may burn out.

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.

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.

My malibu landscape 300w transformer does not want to come on


Check that power pack is getting electricity.
Power pack should make a small humming sound when on.
Scratch a wire across both terminal screws and see if there is spark.
If a bulb burns out, and is not replaced, additional voltage can burn out other bulbs.
Power pack should be unplugged if bulbs are not burning since that can burn out power pack.
Change out a couple bulbs and then plug-in power pack.
Check connections where lights tie into wire.

My power pack was doing same thing, I bought another power pack from Home Depot to check my lights. All but 2 bulbs were burned out. I replaced bulbs and returned new power pack.. and then power pack quit for good a month later.

I found tips to preserve power packs:
1) Match wattage of bulbs with wattage of power pack
-15 each X 20 watt bulbs = 300 watts, so install 300Watt power pack
2) Installing a 500W power pack on 300W of bulbs will burn out bulbs and power pack.
3) Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out or other bulbs will burn out and power pack will burn out.
4) When working on bulbs, unplug power pack or it may burn out.

Can you replace timer on ML300RTW - Power pack still works timer does not turn.


I answer questions for free.
I specialize in timers and electrical devices.
I hesitate to answer about Malibu power packs because there are no parts or repairs for a power pack.

Here's what I've done for fixya customers.
For hours, I searched Intermatic Timers, Malibulights.com, and the web looking for parts and solutions for the Malibu power pack. There are no parts or solutions.

I purchased a power pack from Home Depot and examined it and then read the manual from head to toe.

The answer is this: if the power pack is not working in any way and the receptacle has power, then the power pack is busted and you need another one.

However I can save you money on your next power pack:
Your next power pack:
1) Match up wattage of bulbs with wattage of power pack.
15 each - 20 watt bulbs = 300 watts = 300 watt power pack ... if you buy the 500 watt power pack for 300Watts of bulbs, then it will burn up the bulbs and the power pack.
2) Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out or other bulbs will burn out and the power pack will burn out
3) When working on bulbs, unplug power pack or the power pack may burn out
4) Use the link below to help plan your low-voltage lighting

Is there a fuse (or similar) INSIDE a Malibu 600 TW (6.0 Amp)?


There is no fuse
There are no replacement parts for Malibu power packs

Malibulights.com has no troubleshooting steps

Here's what I learned:

Power packs are made to last many years 'in ordinary conditions' >> but they do give out.
Malibu power packs stop working and have to be replaced, they can't be fixed.
Power packs frequently stop working when people disconnect all the lights to work on the system, but they leave the power pack plugged in.
Power packs make a humming sound when ON.
Check electricity to unit to see if power pack has electricity.
Check your GFCIs in bathroom and kitchen.
Plug hair dryer into same receptacle to see if there is power.
Lights have to be replaced as soon as they burn out.
With burned out lights, the power pack will overpower and burn out other lights.
Evidently the power pack with no lights can also burn itself out.
When buying a new power pack, match bulb wattage with power pack wattage.
10 - 20 watt bulbs = 200Watt power pack.
15 - 20 watt bulbs = 300Watt power pack.

Hello i am using a Canon EOS Rebel T1i, with a DynaLite kit, but I can't see where to attach the sync cable to the camera


Your camera has no PC Socket.
Buy a NIKON AS-15 and you are ready to shoot. Or just buy a cheap Nikon flash that has a PC Socket.

What timer motor fits in Intermatic ML121RT Power Pack ?


The PB912M10 timer clock motor is not sold separately. Aug 2010.
If power pack transformer still works: buy cheap plug-in timer, set power pack to override, and plug power pack into cheap timer.
With receipt, power pack might still be under warranty.
