SOURCE: I have a Malibu ML88T timer on the garden lights.

Is the timer wheel rotating - keeping time?
If so, are there pins for the wheel?
The other option is to purchase a photo sensor and let your lights stay on from dusk til dawn. The benefit of this arrangement is that as dusk changes across the seasons and daylight savings time, you don't have to keep adjusting on/off times.

Just bought a new Malibu 120 runs a few minutes and shuts off repeat ly after reset


Malibu 120 has photoeye.
At night, the darkness causes photoeye to turn lights ON
Lights located near to the photoeye can cause the photoeye to 'think' it is daytime... so photoeye turns lights OFF...
Then it's dark again because lights are off... so photoeye turns lights ON.
The cycle repeats ON-OFF all night long.

Why won't my ml44t transformer turn the connected lights on or off?


1) Copy following link for installing and troubleshooting power pack
http://waterheatertimer.org/Malibu-power-pack-stopped-working.html

2) Test outlet for power.
Temporarily run extension cord from another outlet.
Connect wires to terminals a and b ... make sure no insulation is under screw plate.
44 watt power pack will operate 44 watts of low-voltage lights (12Volt).
If 300 watts of lights are installed on line, then lights probably will not light up.

I replaced an old Malibu 300 watt powerpack with a new digital 300 watt Malibu power pack and when I turn it on it runs for about a miniut and then shuts down. I have 15 11watt light on it, the same as the...


300 watt power pack should have 300 watt load.
You have 165 watt load.
Copy following link for general tips to get Malibu power pack to last longer.

Problem might be the photo eye.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Malibu-8100-9045-01-large.jpg
Rotate manual dial to ON position and see if lights turn ON.
Keep in mind the digital power pack has photoeye that is light sensitive, and must be exposed to dark light to activate.
For timed functions. Rotate manual dial until it points at timer. Press clock set function button, and use up-down buttons to set current time. Press timer ON button, and then use up-down to set ON timer. Then press timer OFF button , and use arrow keys to set OFF time.

This product has 1 year limited warranty, contrast with old-type analog power pack with 5-year warranty.
Malibu does not even post a manual on their site, which might have troubleshoot section to illuminate why your system has problem,

Malibu timer motor won't turn on, but it turns off ok. I want to replace the timer unit, where can i get one


The timer module is not sold separately.
Malibu has 5-year limited warranty against defects in workmanship.
If the transformer still works, then plug unit into cheap wall timer.
If the timer dial still keeps good timer, then order trippers.
Copy following link for manuals, tips, replacement tripper numbers and general troubleshoot:
