SOURCE: wiring connections for Kichler 900w transformer

You need to connect one wire from each cable to one of the com terminals. The other wire from each cable has to connect to a tap terminal. The tap terminal you use will depend how many lights and the length of the cable. For short cable runs like 25' use tap 1 50' tap 2 100' tap 3 more than 100' tap 4. you may need to connect all three cables to the same tap terminal. If you turn it on and one string of lights is dimmer than the others move the tap connection from that wire to a higher number. The tap terminals send out a little higher voltage the higher the tap number. The obect is to get the same light output of each light compensating for the voltage drop of the cable. This is a lot of info so I hope this answers your question. If you need more help let me know.

Just install a lyric round thermostat on both floors.He did not add a 24 v transformer to the first floor, he used the existing transformer on my hot water heater that controls the two zone valves.


Can't say it is correct but a 40 va transformer (which is most common) should be just fine. Why did he not use the existing hot wire for the old tstat?

Need a diagram of a Kichler 15E120BK


Installation appears to hook over a nail.
If you're trying to get inside the mechanism, I suspect the unit is sealed and non-repairable.

I have a kichler 15pl300 where it does not transform from 120 Volts coming and it does not want to send out 12 V on the other side. The 120 volts has confirmed for be live.


I have been unable to locate manual for Kitchler low voltage products.
The troubleshoot page says check on-off switch, and put black tape over photoeye for two minutes, but does not elaborate on what to do.

1) Kitchler e-mail and contact information:
