If the timer is stopping, it could be a physical obstruction. Or it could be an electrical mis wiring so that the timer is turning itself off at that point, check the incoming wiring and see if it makes sense, and follow the diagram to see if the incoming power is definitely not on any switched terminals, they would maybe be marked with NO , NC,

Describe your Malibu 600W Power Pack Transformer Problem When it is time for the low voltage lights to come on the timer can not get past the pin to turn it on, however when I turn the timer dial it...


When dial gets stuck at tripper, then clock motor has gotten weak.
1) Some people report taking apart the clock motor, cleaning gears, and adding vaseline to gears.
-Some people write and ask how to put gears back together after taking timer apart.
-Some people find the gears are stripped.
-There are no replacement clock motors or timer modules for Malibu/Intermatic timers.
2) Easiest solution might be to buy cheap plug in timer, set power pack to override, then plug power pack into cheap timer.
3) Power packs come with a warranty, but warranty requires sales receipt.

Timer rotates but whenever it reaches the tripper to turn the lights on it gets stuck there. It's like there isn't enough power to rotat the switch to turn the lights on. Have checked the switch...


The clock motor gets weak and sticks on the tripper and then stops working.
Possible solution: Some people report they disassembled clock motor, cleaned the gears and added a bit of vaseline or white grease to gears because they get dirty.
Then afterward, you might try duct tape to seal unit from dust
Others report they got the clock motor apart and didn't mark parts and take photos along the way, and forgot how tiny gears went back.
My experience with clock motors, and motors in general, is when they slow down, they overheat and don't last much longer.
There are no replacement clock motors for ML series power packs, which is shortcoming since Intermatic makes replacement clock motors and modules for many of their products.

Work-around: Set timer to override, then plug power pack into cheap wall timer.

The timer works but gets "stuck" when it comes to the ON time. it will continue this cycle if i force it to click past the ON time; but when it comes around the next day it sticks again.


You posted under malibu power pack.

When clock motor gets weak, it can no longer push timer dial past the trip point switch.
Right now the clock motor is overheating and will stop functioning.
This timer does not have replacement clock motor, but comes with 5-year limited warranty.
Buy cheap plug-in timer, set power pack to override, and plug power pack into cheap timer.

You need to trace the power feeding the high voltage transfomer. Because the table doesn't turn, it implies that a door switch or safety interlock is the problem.
