Question about Maytag Refrigerators

1 Answer

The light bulb went out and I got a new one to replace it and it won't work. I tried both bulbs in the pack and neither one will come on. It is the same kind as was in before and says refrigerator bulb on the pack. What else could the problem be?

Will my new LED malibu lights work with with my ML200RT transformer? They use considerably less wattage than my old bulb type lamps.


Malibu puts out 12 Volt AC without specifying type of bulb
If new bulbs work on 12 Volt AC, then they should work
http://waterheatertimer.org/Malibu-power-pack-stopped-working.html#install

Wattage on bulbs should match power pack wattage, or damage can occur to power pack.
Buy new power pack, call Intermatic, or Try it out and see if it works

I lost the small clip that is inserted into the timer at the time yo want the lights to come on,.


Trippers for low voltage timers are not available at Malibulights.com or Intermatic, or ebay.
That explains why folks ask power pack questions on fixya instead of finding results at the manufacturer's website.
New Malibu power packs are electronic and not mechanical

'Harry' wrote me about a work-around for lost trippers.
He bought ordinary 3-prong wall timer, and then set malibu power pack override to ON, and then plugged power pack into wall timer. 3-prong timers sell for $10 at Walmart and Target.

My research into power pack issues resulted in tips for maintaining and setting up power packs.
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.

I just purchased a 2003 Buick Century (one owner car) and the right front turn signal lamp went out, so replaced the bulb and it went out again a few hours later. What could cause this? My mechanic...


Is the bulb really burned out,black or wire in bulb broken,If ok have the bulb socket contacts checked to see if they are the problem or posable bad ground for that bulb.

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.

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.

My malibu landscape 300w transformer does not want to come on


Check that power pack is getting electricity.
Power pack should make a small humming sound when on.
Scratch a wire across both terminal screws and see if there is spark.
If a bulb burns out, and is not replaced, additional voltage can burn out other bulbs.
Power pack should be unplugged if bulbs are not burning since that can burn out power pack.
Change out a couple bulbs and then plug-in power pack.
Check connections where lights tie into wire.

My power pack was doing same thing, I bought another power pack from Home Depot to check my lights. All but 2 bulbs were burned out. I replaced bulbs and returned new power pack.. and then power pack quit for good a month later.

I found tips to preserve power packs:
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.

The lights stay on all the time and won't shut off. The front ones work fine but not the back lights. Any idea's? thanks,


Unfortunately when the power pack stops working there is no solution.
Your power pack has electricity so that is not the problem.
The bulbs turn on, so the bulbs are ok.
That means the power pack has malfunctioned, and needs to be replaced.

I did find some tips to help folks preserve their power packs:
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.

The timer feature of my Malibu 300 watt power pack just stopped working. The lights can still be turned on/off manually. Anything I can do other than buy a new one?

Low beams stopped working simultaneously


Well I would certainly check the fuse because that both lights burned out. If only one had burned out I would replace the bulb. If the fuse is good I would purchase 1 bulb and see if the new bulb works. Often times people will replace both bulbs because they come in 2 packs cheaper than singles. This also can cause both to burn out at the same time. Check the fuse and then replace a light, if replacing one light works replace the other, this should cure the problem.
