How wiring diagram for christmas lights work


All the bulbs in a section of lights are connected in series, meaning one after the other, like links in a chain. If one bulb goes out the chain is broken and that section goes out. All modern light sets have bulbs which have a built-in feature called a shunt. The shunt in the bulb is supposed to short out if the bulb filament burns out. The advertising wording would be something like 'if one bulb burns out, the others stay lit'. It usually works, but there are limits. Sometimes the shunt in the burned-out bulb fails to work and the chain remains broken. You have to find the bad bulb and replace it. Also, every time a bulb burns out, if the shunt is working and the other bulbs stay on, the power to each remaining lit bulb increases. This puts a strain on the remaining bulbs, which is why you should always replace burned out bulbs as soon as you discover them. If you don't and more bulbs in the same section burn out, you can reach a point where there's too much power for the remaining bulbs to handle, and all (or at least many) of the remaining bulbs will burn out, necessitating a replacement of the string.

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.

The lights stay on all the time and won't shut off. The front ones work fine but not the back lights. Any idea's? thanks,


Unfortunately when the power pack stops working there is no solution.
Your power pack has electricity so that is not the problem.
The bulbs turn on, so the bulbs are ok.
That means the power pack has malfunctioned, and needs to be replaced.

I did find some tips to help folks preserve their 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.

The transformer will work if I manually turn the dial. The dial will not automatically turn anymore.


If the bulbs turn on when you manually rotate dial, then the power pack has electricity.
A lot of people ask for replacement Malibu tripper pins on Fixya, and it sounds like your trippers are working fine.
If clock has stopped rotating, that means the power pack has malfunctioned, and needs to be replaced.

Keeps burning out when i replace them-headlights.


I had the same problem with 2 different vehicles. Kept burning out the replacement bulbs, and they never lasted very long. I was told that I should never touch the bulbs with my bare hands/fingers because it transferred oil onto the bulb which would in turn create a hot spot on the bulb and cause it to burn out. I tried changing the bulb while wearing hospital type thin latex gloves. I also made sure not to touch the bulb to anything else while guiding it into its proper position. I know it sounds silly, and it may just be a coincidence, but I have not had the problem since I started installing bulbs this way.

GE GTS20ICNCC Refrigerator light bulb burns out quickly


Use the correct wattage bulbs. If they fail often then you may need to get it checked by an electrician.
Filament bulbs easily burn out. What you can do is to buy cheap bulbs and replace as soon as they burn. This is the problem which is why tube lights and LEDs were invented!
