Question about Weatherproof WT-12 - Single Circuit Transformer - Landscape Lighting

1 Answer

Landscape lighting transformer won't keep time. Anything I can do other than getting a new one. It seems like I have to get one every six months. Also my lights frequently go out, but if I give them a slight tap they come on. This would seem to be a loose connection to me, but everything seems snug. Any thoughts.

If its only the timer part that doesnt work why dont you buy a normal plug timer [you know the ones you use for home use like radios and light etc ] and plug the transformer into that and then set the timer and plug that into the outlet , there is no reason that would not work , hope this helps smirf617

We have a Malibu 300 low wattage transformer for 13- 20 watt landscape lights.

Try connecting a lamp (correct voltage, etc) directly to the transformer. Most likely, the wire from the transformer to your lights is broken... The reset button can't reset anything, if there's nothing wrong there.

No Power to my landscape lights from transformer. Thank-you

Disconnect the wires on the transformer that go out to the lites. Voltage should be 24 + volts. If not then the internal safety fuse is burned out. You'll have to get a new transformer. If voltage is present then the wires to the lites has an open which will stop the lites from working.

Have Malibu ML300RTW Transformer...

Doesn't seem to me it could be the transformer/controller as it either puts out voltage and current or it doesn't. I can't think of any way it would selectively operate certain bulbs. You said wiring is fine, but you should check voltage at the end of the line to ensure it's getting close to 12 volts all the way down the wiring. If not, there may be a problem between transformer and misbehaving bulbs. Doesn't seem likely that 5 bulbs would go out a once, but that would be all that's left.

Replaced the thermostat on a rbhc-24 with a honeywell and unit won't run now

transformer has a fuse buried in the windings making it impossible to change. It's new transformer time.

Problem with Malibu Landscape Lights Transformer ML900TW

Use an extension cord to plug the transformer into a different "test" GFCI receptacle, if it holds on the test GFCI you know that the GFCI for the transformer needs replaced. If it doesn't hold, then the transformer is on the way out and should be replaced. Sometimes motors and transformers will "leak" current and still work, but not trip a regular circuit breaker. A GFCI that is doing it's job will catch it though. Don't force a GFCI like can wear it out prematurely.

Malibu landscape transformer

I discovered that I hadn't turned the manual switch to off on the one that wasn't working properly.
Now they both work fine. The instructions that come with the Malibu Transformer is not easy to understand and it does not go into enough detail. There isn't a trouble shooting section which would help.

Malibu landscape transformer

If it is keeping time try moving the stops. If it is not keeping time the motor is probably burned out. These transformers don't have a lot of serviceable parts to them.
