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.

Does Malibu still make a model number ML500TW timer transformer

None of the other brands sells 500 watt either.
Kichler sells 300 and 600 and 900Watts
Paradise does not have 500 watt
Malibu brand does not carry 500 watt
Portfolio does not carry 500 watt

MALIBU 200 WATT IRON CORE TRANSFORMER MODEL NO 8100-0200-01 LIGHTS WONT TURN OFF


Plug power pack into cheap wall timer, and that will operate lights until warranty is resolved with Malibu or product-seller.

Simple power outage, or nearby lightning strike, can cause surge that will knock out digital timers. And knock out analog series power packs too.
You probably need receipt for warranty claim.
This timer is not shown on Intermatic site, and not subject to Intermatic 5-year warranty, but certainly Malibu must have a warranty of unknown length, and a corresponding claim procedure.

Double-check your installation, and additional resources:

Whole-house surge protection is hot item among folks these days since so many household items are now electronic, including appliances, washer-dryer, water heaters, timers, etc.
This will protect both 120Volt and 240Volt circuits, although it is unknown if your timer failed because of surge..

My Malibu ML 300 RTW has stopped working, but I can hear the timer. No lights come on, though.


Sounds like the transformer died which isn't uncommon. One cause is overloading the circuit (too many lights) figure out the total wattage by adding the bulb watttage usually 11 by the amount of lights you have. I would buy a transformer with around 200 Watts higher than you need to allow for expansion and the transformer wont have to "work" as hard.

I don't have repair for defective transformer.
The transformer puts power on the wire. Buy multimeter and check voltage across the terminals.
If wires are loose, or bulbs are not connected to wire, or bulbs burned out, or if wattage of bulbs is mis-matched with transformer wattage, then lights might not work as expected.

I need instructions for setting the timer


Malibu product manuals

Manual for 300 Watt power pack

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

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?

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.

working with those outdoors transformer I have ran into couple would short the unit out by installing it wrong or exposing to lots of waters/moister. Again, it could also be a factory fault unit, some products will only last only few days before it blow out. It happen and most of those unit have 5 years warranty on them. I would take it back and get another and if it happens again than you may not installing it correctly or installing too close exposing to lots of moister and may short the unit out. I don't recommend trying to fix it still having warranty on them, get a replacement and start over. good luck and i hope that help some
