Schematic or solution for Mr Christmas light controller

Purchased this product to do the Xmas lights on my house. Wonderfull product BUT when it is cold the unit runs a double speed. Cycling the power will eventually clear the issue and it is fine till next time. Heard on a message board that others are having the same problem but I don't want to wait 30 days to have it replaced. Xmas will be over.

I work in electronics for Fluke and if someone could give me a solution or a schematic I would like to try to fix it for this years lights.

I don't see it on this web site. Any help would be great.

    Thanks for the idea.

    What I did last year worked well.

    I opened the unit and added a 7W Xmas light bulb (could also use a night light bulb).

    This added enough heat within the case to have the unit work for the whole holiday season.

    Getting ready to use it again this year.

    How did you add the 7 watt bulb. We have the same problem.

Cold, possibly? Try putting the unit under a plastic container (like a large rubbermaid tub) with about a 100 watt bulb (work light) this should generate enough heat to keep it warm. My bet is moisture, rain, snow, cover it with a garbage bag when you put it out at xmas, also makes the unit some what invisible to thieves. just a thought

I am looking for a remote control to control multiple lights in my house

U can get one of those remotes that are used to turn on Xmas decorations and a power strip. Plug all into the power strip and the power strip goes to receiving unit of remote. And that will do it on the cheap. Hopefully all of the lights you wish to control are close together and close to the strip.
