Question about Intermatic & Malibu& 300 Watt Power/Pack Timer

1 Answer

I have a Malibu 900W transformer for low voltage landscape lighting. There are three sets of terminals (300 watts each), but each set has three connections labeled A, B, and C. Why three connections when there are only two wires to connect?

We have a Malibu 300 low wattage transformer for 13- 20 watt landscape lights.


Try connecting a lamp (correct voltage, etc) directly to the transformer. Most likely, the wire from the transformer to your lights is broken... The reset button can't reset anything, if there's nothing wrong there.

Loud huming from my 300v low voltage lighting transformer


Transformers make humming sound.
ML300 series transformers make sound.
Used styrafoam to separate transformer from contact with building so sound is not carried.
These transformers have 10 year limited warranty.

Copy following link for general troubleshoot and tips, and warranty information, and trippers.

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:

My 600 watt 12 volt transformer timer for out door lighting does not keep time properly. HOw do I get and install a new timer?


1) Amazon sells 600Watt power pack:
http://www.amazon.com/Malibu-8100-9600-01-Voltage-Power-Transformer/sim/B002ZRPM4A/2

2) I bought new 300Watt Malibu power pack at Home Depot about 2 months ago.
Near the lighting section.
My new power pack has electronic time clock, so no more 'slow clock.'
I think Home Depot had 600Watt.
Lowes carries different brand.

3) Manuals for power packs at Malibu lights.com
http://www.malibulights.com/customer_service/owners_manuals.aspx

4) Tips for buying and taking care of power pack:
-Match up wattage of bulbs with wattage of power pack
-15 each X 20 watt bulbs = 300 watts, so install 300Watt power pack
-Installing a 500W power pack on 300W of bulbs will burn out bulbs and power pack.
-Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out or other bulbs will burn out and power pack will burn out.
-When working on bulbs, unplug power pack or it may burn out.
http://www.malibulights.com/guides_support/low_voltage_planning_guide/select_your_power_pack

5) How to install power pack.
Before unplugging old power pack, check which bulbs are not working.
Replace bulbs using phillips screwdriver.
Unplug power pack.
Notice how wires are connected to power pack, write down terminal connections.
Some power packs have three terminals ... extra terminal is for additional photoelectric eye.
Use pliers or screwdriver to disconnect wires.
New power pack has has same terminals.
Plug in power pack.
Read instruction manual before connecting wires.
Save instruction manual because a few years that manual won't be around as products change.
