SOURCE: My Malibu 200 Watt Power

There is no fuse and no repair parts

I've been all over the Malibulights.com website looking for anything that might help the large number of people with Malibu questions. The website has very little information and no parts and the site offers no help except the following:

1) Malibu gets the customer money, and other people troubleshoot for their customers
2) When buying a power pack, the total bulb wattage on the line has to match the power pack wattage
10 - 20 watt bulbs = 200 Watt power pack
15 -20 watt bulbs = 300 Watt power pack
http://www.malibulights.com/guides_support/low_voltage_planning_guide/select_your_power_pack.aspx
If your power pack is oversized, it will burn out the bulbs and burn out the power pack

3) A power pack makes a humming noise when it has power >>> check your power source if power pack won't work >>> no other troubleshooting is offered
4) Replace burned out bulbs ASAP or the power pack burns out the other bulbs
5) Unplug power pack when working on bulbs [otherwise, the power pack burns out which is why people write fixya asking why their power pack won't work after replacing all their bulbs]
6) Nowhere on the Malibu site does it offer-or-explain burned out power packs or power packs that don't work, but they show plenty of new products for you to buy.

SOURCE: how to troulbe shoot my 300-Watt Power Pack/Timer.

'Harry' wrote to me yesterday with handy malibu information.
1) Power packs come with 5 year limited warranty.
He is contacting Malibulights.com for a refund of some type.
Hope he writes back and says how that comes out.
2) He was having problem and plugged power pack into wall timer, then set timer.
Heh heh, pretty clever: Malibu transformer works, but timer doesn't, so plug power pack into a wall timer!!

That being said, I had same problem with my power pack.
I used blower to remove dirt and sprayed wd-40 and tried to take it apart.
My power pack was getting electricity.
Connections were good where lights tie into wire.
My lights never turned off.

Power pack doesn't come apart.
I turned it upside down thinking water got into timer.
I took it inside and let it warm up.
It still wouldn't work so bought another one.
Then I searched Intermatic and Malibulights.com for answer, but they have no troubleshooting or repair other than check electricity and check bulbs.
Conclusion: when power pack doesn't work, it is broken.
Unless you buy a separate timer and plug power pack into that timer as Harry suggests.

After researching power packs at Intermatic, Malubulights.com, ebay etc, the best I found were tips for next power pack that might save money:
The reason I add these tips now, before your power pack needs replacement is some fella wrote-in.
He bought 500 Watt power pack to replace 300 Watt > thinking bigger was better.
Power pack burned out. Here's why:
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.

SOURCE: How do I set my

Resourceful do-it-yourselfer will find following information helpful for solving problem.
Max Load 1000Watts incandescent
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-program-Hagar-timer.html#700-series
Manual uses several languages including English
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Hager-EH711-Timer.pdf

Hagar 700 series analog timer has mechanical dial that rotates as time passes.
Segments located on outer edge of dial are moved down-and-out, or up-and-inward to set on-off times.
As dial rotates, segments move lever that turns Load on-off.

With segment timers, all consecutive segments between on and off times have to be pushed in place.
Since EH700 series timer has NO NC terminals, segment position is determined by how timer was wired.
This is because segments-in and segments-out turn different terminals ON.

As a result, the best way to set this timer is to push 10 consecutive segments down-and-out.
Leave rest of segments up-and-inward.
Then manually rotate timer dial to watch when Load turns on-off.

Hagar analog timers also have a switch located in bottom right.
This is the manual override switch.
Set switch in position "I" and then rotate timer dial to watch when Load turns of-off.
Set switch in position "O" and then rotate timer dial again to watch when Load turns of-off.

Manually rotating dial and experimenting with segments and switch will tell resourceful do-it-yourselfer exactly how to set timer.
Once segments and switch are set, then rotate timer hands until current time shows on analog dial face.

I purchase a Malibu ML600TW. My quest is. In this unit are there 2 separate 300 watt transformer. or when you contact the line in you are wiring to 600 watts.


With the 600 watt ML series, there are two sets of a-b-c terminals. C terminals are used with photo eye.
Connect 300 watts of bulbs to one set a-b terminals, connect 300 watts to other set of a-b terminals.
I'm not sure what is inside the power pack. However if you run less than or more than 600 watts or let your bulbs burn out for any length of time, the power pack can burn out. Save your receipt for limited 5-year warranty.

For your benefit, open following link for more information on ML power packs, plus troubleshoot, plus tips to keep power pack from burning out, and links to trippers:

Power packs do not have repair parts.

His timer stopped working so he bought cheap plug-in timer, set power pack to override, and then plugged power pack into cheap timer.
Harry said his power pack has 5 year warranty and he was negotiating with Malibulights.com for replacement. No word how that came out.

I have a Malibu 200 watt transformer with timer and I'm not sure why the timer is not working. Is there an instruction manual on line that I can read to see what I should do?


Malibulights.com has manuals.

People post malibu questions on Fixya each day.
Some people report being able to take apart power pack and timers, but nobody reports being able to fix power pack once it stops functioning.

If you can get manual override to turn lights on, 'Harry' wrote to fixya with some help.

You have malibu-type low-voltage transformer.

There are no repair parts for this type of timer, and nobody reports being able to fix timer once it goes bad.

Apparently the motor is working but the timer is not running


These dang power packs don't have replacement parts. You can see if the manual override turns lights on and off. The power pack makes a humming noise. If the timer is not rotating, then try setting the current time.

Malibu manuals are located on this page
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 http://www.malibulights.com/customer_service/owners_manuals.aspx

If you buy another one, be sure to match up total wattage of bulbs to the power pack wattage.
For example 10 - 20 watt bulbs = 200 Watts >> you should buy 200 Watt power pack
15 - 20 watt bulbs = 300 Watt power pack
Oversized power pack will burn out the bulbs
Also if you let bulbs burn out, it will shorten life of power pack
Unplug the power pack when working on the bulbs

I've done a lot of reading and research on Malibu

No replacement parts for Power pack, or schematic >> Malibulights.com shows replacement lights and replacement power packs
Manual for Malibu 600 Watt power pack

SAVE the pins off old power pack and see if they match pins on new power pack ... because you can't find pins on the internet

When the power pack goes bad or you lose the pins, then you buy another power pack

Things to remember:
Match number of lights to power pack wattage
30 - 20 Watt bulbs => 30 x 20 = 600 Watt power pack
Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out, or other bulbs will burn out quickly, and I think it causes power pack to burn out sooner too.

Up-vote if this helped. Thanks for the feedback.

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
