GE digital timer 15313 has 3 wires, black, blue and green. Wall switch wires have bare, black, red and white from one line, and black and white from the other line. I've tried every combination


It sounds like you are replacing 3-way switch.
Low voltage light? Are these lights connected to 120Volt circuit?

I think you want the GE 15312 timer, instead of GE 15313.

GE 15313 is for single-pole incandescent light bulbs only.

I don't have repair for defective transformer.
The transformer puts power on the wire. Buy multimeter and check voltage across the terminals.
If wires are loose, or bulbs are not connected to wire, or bulbs burned out, or if wattage of bulbs is mis-matched with transformer wattage, then lights might not work as expected.

How i can do the instalation


1) Need more information.
Heres some help to get you started, then you add a comment and fill in details so I can give accurate answer.

2) You posted under Paragon 7008-00 timer.

3) People post under Paragon when they have Tork, so I need exact model number and what voltage you have and what Load you are trying to wire.

4) Also what terminals appear on timer, since any timer can be in a box that is marked 7008.
Then add what color wires you have coming from breaker box, what size breaker, and if same breaker is going to supply voltage to timer and to Load, and what color wires are going to Load.

5) Open following link to identify timer for sure, and see manual and wiring diagrams.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#7000

6) Typical wiring diagram for 7008 showing one set of NO NC terminals:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Paragon-7008-00-timer-wiring-350.jpg

7) 7008 timer has 120Volt clock motor. So power to terminals A and B has to be 120V.
But timer can still control 120V or 240V loads.

8) According to manual, 7008 timer has 2 NO (normally open) terminals that are OFF when timer is OFF
Timer also has 2 NC (normally closed) terminals that are ON when timer is OFF

9) Both sets of terminals reverse when timer turns ON.

10) NO and NC terminals are frequently used for continuous-operation 2-speed motors, for example.
You do not want power to both speeds at same time, or motor will burn out. So low speed is connected to NO terminal, and high speed is connected to NC terminal. This way the motors windings are kept separate, and either low speed is ON or high speed is ON.

11) Another example of NO NC terminals could be store lighting. When store closes, the timer turns off exit signs and store-room lights inside store, and at same moment timer turns on burglar alarm and outdoor lights. In this example the timer controlled 4 different circuits: exit signs, store-room, alarm, and outdoor lights. With 2-NO and 2-NC terminals, that is possible.

I have the ML300RTW transformer. Just need to know about the trippers, one red and one black. Which one turns the system on and which one turns it off.


Here's how to check your power pack: Connect everything and set trippers randomly, and then manually rotate dial clockwise and watch when lights turn on-off, this will let you check if you have trippers set correctly.
As time passes, the dial rotates, and trippers push on-off lever that turns low-voltage lamps on-off.

If trippers no longer work, it's because trippers are worn down or the lever is worn out or the electrical contacts have burned. And the clock motors slow down and burn out.
There are no repair parts for low-voltage transformers. No trippers or timers.
"Harry" wrote to fixya with idea when timer no longer works: he bought cheap plug-in timer, set power pack to override, and then plugged power pack into cheap timer.

Since there are no repairs for low voltage transformers, I found tips 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 it may burn out.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

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.

I have the ml121rt transformer. the lights work fine but the dial on the timer doesn't spin on its own to keep time so i have to manually turn them on and off. what can be done?


Power pack is getting electricity.
Connections are good where lights tie into wire.

My power pack was doing same thing.
I tried everything from spraying WD40 to trying to taking it apart.
Power pack doesn't come apart.
I turned it upside down thinking water or dirt got into timer.
I took it inside and let it warm up.
It still wouldn't work.
Then I searched Intermatic and Malibulights.com for answer, but they have no troubleshooting or repair.
Conclusion: when power pack doesn't work, it is broken.

I found tips to preserve power packs, but over the years I pretty much followed these steps and power pack still failed.
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.

My malibu transformer has a reset button on the back near the terminal connections. If the transformer is on (time displays on the panel) but the light fixtures are not lit, look for the reset button on the back and depress it.

I have a Model ml 44t, when the temp outside became cooler my timer would not turn on the lights, it would stop rotating at the red post.

-I think your outdoor plug is connected to GFI plug in bathroom or kitchen >>> check reset on GFI.
-Next, plug your hair dryer into same outdoor plug to see if plug has electricity >>> electrical plugs outside wear out quicker, and get loose wires.
-Move timer cord to the other plug
-I don't know if a bit of WD 40 would help or not .... couldn't hurt to spry some on the pins at this point ...UNPLUG timer because WD is very flammable...
-Tips from manual mention checking for burned out bulbs ... I've seen that mentioned other places and don't know if bulb problems shorten life of low-volt transformer inside the box.
-I worked with timers for years, and never seen replacement clocks or transformers for Malibu-type timers
-Timers located outside get damp and dirty ... these things cause small gears inside timers to oxidize and clog so they don't work after a while ... again, a bit of WD-40 might help

Tips copied from manual:
• Make sure power pack is plugged in. Is outlet working?
• Turn manual ON/OFF switch to "ON" or rotate dial so "ON" tripper passes time line indicator.
• Is lamp burned out? Use another lamp to test.
NOTE: This lighting system is designed to last many years under normal conditions. However, lamps eventually burn out and operating with one lamp out can shorten the life of the others. IT IS IMPORTANT TO REPLACE BURNED OUT LAMPS PROMPTLY.
Conditions beyond your control such as abnormally high household voltage due to poor utility voltage regulation will also affect lamp life.

The timer has 1 year warranty.

If other lights are working the power pack is OK. Usually, as in your case, if changing the bulb doesn't work, check the connection where the light ties into the main run.
