The timer works just like a lamp timer. First set it up on the correct time (white arrow on the inner circle). Next push the 15 minute increments down when you want the heater to run.

SOURCE: Lights won't automatically turn on BUT will automatically go off

Are you using the red peg for 'on' and black for 'off'?

SOURCE: Timer not working Malibu ML88T Power pack

there are multipul 12 timers on the market BUT if you use a 12 volt power pack designed for a car radio display or even a simple 12v 5 amp laptop power suply and a cheep outdoor timer or cheeper indoor timer and run wires inside you can add lights
remember theise lights are low voltage and if you change the bulbs out you can really strech out the amprage too
low amp led automotive bulbs are a great invention they draw mili amps and use 12 volts
i converted my noma moonrays to a laptop power supply and added 30 more to a single string so i curently have 50 lights on 1 power suply pulling aprox 4.5 amps out of a 5A power supply i used led bulbs and simple moma cord now i can light the whole back yard with 1 ps and it's really bright if i use the led headlamps mounted under the soffit on the house

SOURCE: Clock is set properly.

I answer questions for free.
I know timers and electrical devices, and have tested most of the brands.
You posted under the Woods 7-day timer 59018 or 59028.
Here is the manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Woods-59018-59028.pdf

There are several programmable timers today that look like Woods, and each brand has different programming.

If you do not have Woods, add a comment and I will walk through programming your brand

1) You have the clock set correctly which implies the wiring is correct. Good job!
2) Programming review:
Each program requires ON time to be set, and then OFF time to be set
For example you set Program1 ON 5:00PM for ALL days.
And then you set Program1 OFF 11PM for ALL days.

3) Programming steps:
Press PROG button until Timer 1 ON appears on display
Use Hour button to set 5 PM
Use MIN button to set :00
Default selects ALL days
(If you want other days, press DAY button until display shows correct block of days)
Press PROG button again to save Program1 ON

4) Now for Program1 OFF

5) To set Program1 Off
Press PROG button until Timer 1 OFF shows in display.
Use Hour button to set 11 PM
Use MIN button to set :00
Default selects ALL days
(If you want other days, press DAY button until display shows correct block of days)
Press PROG button again to save Program1 OFF

6) Program 1ON and Program1 OFF have been set ... so press the CLOCK button to return to current time.
If you want to set another program, press PROG button until Timer 2 ON displays

7) After setting programs, press Clock button so current time shows.

8) The manual shows one more thing ... if you program the timer during the hours 5-11pm, and the timer should be ON during those hours, you have to 'tell' the timer to turn ON by pressing the manual override ... after that the timer will operate normally.

If you need more assistance, add a comment.
If instructions help, give it a 4-thumb

1 Answer

Can I set the Malibu 8100-0600-01 to operate at 2 different times at night-(ie- on at 7:00pm-off at 10:00pm then on again at 5:00am and off at 7:00 am)


Yes: Rotate power pack selector to ON. Buy analog wall timer with 3-prong plug from local store. Plug power pack into analog wall timer that will turn power pack on-off twice a night.
Copy following link to identify timer and also see tips for prolonging power pack life:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Malibu-power-pack-stopped-working.html#dawn-dusk
Analog timers:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59200

The 1-year warranty digital transformers sold by Malibu and other vendors are made for single on-off events per each night.
If you manually set power pack to ON so lights are on all the time, then plug power pack into ordinary analog wall timer, then the analog timer turns power pack on-off when you want.

Other option is to buy 5-year warranty Intermatic-Malibu power pack with built-in analog timer dial and set trippers to turn on-off when you want. Order extra trippers for more on-off operations per each 24-hour day.

The timer went out and the time of day no longer changes. I can manually turn the lights on by rotating the switch on top of the timer. How would I go about replacing the timer?


Question posted under Intermatic/Malibu power pack.
Timer clock modules are not sold separately for this timer.
Some people report being able to take the clock module apart, cleaning gears and re-lube with Vaseline. Mark parts carefully so re-assembly is easy.
Power packs have 1-5 year warranty.
Another work around is to buy cheap plug-in timer, set power pack to override, and then plug power pack into cheap timer.

I need instructions for setting the timer


Malibu product manuals
http://www.malibulights.com/customer_service/owners_manuals.aspx

Manual for 300 Watt power pack
http://malibulights.com/docs/pdf/8100-9300-01.pdf
Read cautions

Tips
300 Watt power pack requires sum of bulbs to equal 300 Watts
If you use 10 - 20 watt bulbs that is only 200 Watts so you need 200 Watt power pack

Replace burnt out bulbs immediately or other bulbs will burn out and shorten life of power pack
When working on bulbs, unplug power pack so it does not shorten life of power pack

Set Malibu Timer:
Red trippers are ON
Black trippers are OFF
Place trippers on dial at ON OFF times/ AM and PM

Set current time of day:
Plug in power pack
Trippers are installed
Rotate dial counter-clockwise to current time, say 9 am
Rotate dial 2 more revolutions and then return to current time
That's it

Timer worked for years. Just replaced lights. There were (8) but now there are (10). I didn't do the work and didn't know the wattage (and am not positive, but this looks like the unit). The lights work,...


Download manual for Malibu 200 Watt power pack

According to Malibu website information, your power pack is correct size if lights come on.
The way to figure is this
10 bulbs x 18 watts each = 180 Watts
so 200 watt power pack is good

Does the manual override work?
Rotate the on-off button counterclockwise
If override does not turn lights on-and-off, then timer has a short

Does the center dial turn when power is on?
If the dial is not turning, then power pack is kaput, or time of day is not set

Did you reset the time of day?


2205f7b.jpg

How to set time of day:
Put your trippers in place
Red = ON
Black = OFF
Plug in power pack
Rotate arrow (colored blue in diagram) as follows
Turn dial clockwise to present time of day (diagram shows 9 o'clock)
Turn dial one or more full revolutions, then return to present time of day

If center dial is still not rotating after setting time of day, it's time for new $50-80 power pack, unless you put a $15 timer on that plug. A cheap timer might work ... keep it going for couple more years.

Having trouble setting timer o ML200RT


Set on-off times by setting trippers
-Insert trippers
-Red tripper is ON
-Black tripper is OFF
-New timer has 2 sets of trippers

Set time
-Plug-in & turn-on power pack
Turn dial clockwise to set time of day

Manual override:
Turn manual-on-off switch counterclockwise

Troubleshoot:
-Power pack not turned on
-Plug does not have power > try hair dryer in plug to see if it turns on, check GFI breaker in bathroom, replace plug
-Manual-on-off is set to OFF > rotate to ON
-Outdoor lamp burned out > test with another lamp
-Important to replace burned out lamps promptly, or other lamps burn out quickly
-High household voltage will reduce life of timer
-Timer designed to last for many years under normal conditions

The timer remains on all the time. I have to actually go out there and manually turn the timer off. I don't have a manual, so I don't know what the little red plastic flag amd the little black plastic flag...


The BLACK flag is for ON time.The RED flag is for OFF time. Set the Black flag into the rotating timer for the time of day you want the timers to turn ON and the Red flag for the time you want to turn the lights OFF. Once you have the flags in rotate the timer dial by hand and note when the lights go on and off. Adjust the flags as needed. Set the timer for the correct time of day and plug in. Also, you can check the Intermatic web site for additional information.

Why is my malibu 200 watts transformer not working, the timer will set off the lights but then not turn them off, then the next day they wont come on but when I rotate the dial they come on? Frank


Tripper might be worn down and not pushing switch.
Switch might be broken or worn down.
Improvise by setting timer to override and plug power into cheap plug-in timer.

Malibu TDC PTST-30012 turns on in the middle of the day


1) Contact malibu lights directly.
Their site does not acknowledge TDC PTST-30012, so I cannot access a manual with best information.
Their products come with a warranty.
http://malibulights.com/customer_service/contact_us.aspx
http://malibulights.com/customer_service/owners_manuals.aspx

2) If unit can be set to override, you can buy cheap photo eye timer, and then plug power pack into cheap timer, but there is no guarantee this will work, or that power pack will burn out.
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-HB61RC-Digital-Outdoor-Control/dp/B00004W4X5

3) Buy ordinary power pack with dial-type timer, and then buy photo eye that fits.

http://store.nexternal.com/intermatic/categories.aspx?Keyword=ML814DRP&x=15&y=10

4) As electrician, I would not buy anything that costs more than $15 that comes with built-in photo eye that cannot be replaced.
Especially something as buggy as a low voltage power pack.
