Timer clock not working. can it be replaced?


You posted under malibu power pack.

Power packs do not have repair parts.
Occasionally folks write fixya saying they took power pack apart, but nobody reports repairing transformer or timer.

'Harry' wrote fixya with helpful information.
His timer stopped working so he bought cheap plug-in timer, set power pack to override, and then plugged power pack into cheap timer.
Harry said his power pack has 5 year warranty and he was negotiating with Malibulights.com for replacement. No word how that came out.

Best I found are tips for next power pack that might save money:
The reason I add tips now, before power pack needs replacement is some fella wrote fixya.
He bought 500 Watt power pack to replace 300 Watt > thinking bigger was better.
Power pack burned out. Here's why:
a) Match wattage of bulbs with wattage of power pack
Lets say you have fifteen 20 watt bulbs = 300 watts, so install 300Watt power pack
b) Installing a 500W power pack on 300W of bulbs will burn out bulbs and power pack.
c) Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out or other bulbs will burn out and power pack will burn out.
d) When working on bulbs, unplug power pack or power pack may burn out.

I have a Malibu 200 watt transformer with timer and I'm not sure why the timer is not working. Is there an instruction manual on line that I can read to see what I should do?


Malibulights.com has manuals.
http://malibulights.com/customer_service/owners_manuals.aspx

People post malibu questions on Fixya each day.
Some people report being able to take apart power pack and timers, but nobody reports being able to fix power pack once it stops functioning.

If you can get manual override to turn lights on, 'Harry' wrote to fixya with some help.
His timer stopped working so he bought cheap plug-in timer, set power pack to override, and then plugged power pack into cheap timer.
Harry also said his power pack has 5 year warranty and he was negotiating with Malibulights.com for replacement. No word how that came out.

There are no parts for power packs.

I NEED A REPLACEMENT TIMER (PB912M10).


1.remove timer from power pack. this includes all wiring to timer and switch.
2. buy a timer at Home depot.
3. plug power pack into timer,
4. reattach low voltage output wires to garden lighting system or whatever you use the low voltage for.

this is the second time I had to do this remedy. the timer that comes with the power pack really stinks!

The clock has stopped working. Can clock be replaced?


If I understand correctly, you have Malibu power pack and can manually turn lights on-off but timer is not working.

1) 'Harry' wrote fixya with a work-around. He bought cheap plug-in timer. Set power pack to override and then plugged power pack into cheap timer.

2) Harry also said he has 5 year warranty and was negotiating with malibulights.com for refund.
No word how that came out.

3) Other than Harry's solution, I have not found repairs and parts for power packs.
Hours of reading manuals, searching Malibu, Intermatic, ebay etc turned up nothing.
There are folks who write fixya how they took apart their power pack, but nobody reports fixing a power pack once it goes bad.

4) Best I found are tips for next power pack that might save money:

Power pack burned out. Here's why:
a) Match wattage of bulbs with wattage of power pack
-15 each X 20 watt bulbs = 300 watts, so install 300Watt power pack

c) Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out or other bulbs will burn out and power pack will burn out.

Power pack doesnt work and is under warranty how do I get a new power pack?


'Harry' wrote me Nov 2010 and said his power pack has 5 year warranty and quit after 4 years.
He said he was 'in negotiations' with Malibulights.com
http://malibulights.com/home.aspx
http://malibulights.com/customer_service.aspx

I asked him to let me know what happens, but no report yet.
Same for you please: Add a comment and let me know what Malibu says so information is available for all Malibu owners and fixya supporters.

'Harry' also gave me a tip.
He said Malibu timer stopped working on his power pack, so he bought ordinary plug-in timer, and set Malibu override to ON, and plugged power pack into timer.

While researching Malibu problems, I assembled some power pack tips.
The reason I add these tips now, before your power pack needs replacement is some fella wrote-in.

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.

Is there a fuse (or similar) INSIDE a Malibu 600 TW (6.0 Amp)?


There is no fuse
There are no replacement parts for Malibu power packs

Malibulights.com has no troubleshooting steps

Here's what I learned:

Power packs are made to last many years 'in ordinary conditions' >> but they do give out.
Malibu power packs stop working and have to be replaced, they can't be fixed.
Power packs frequently stop working when people disconnect all the lights to work on the system, but they leave the power pack plugged in.
Power packs make a humming sound when ON.
Check electricity to unit to see if power pack has electricity.
Check your GFCIs in bathroom and kitchen.
Plug hair dryer into same receptacle to see if there is power.
Lights have to be replaced as soon as they burn out.
With burned out lights, the power pack will overpower and burn out other lights.
Evidently the power pack with no lights can also burn itself out.
When buying a new power pack, match bulb wattage with power pack wattage.
10 - 20 watt bulbs = 200Watt power pack.
15 - 20 watt bulbs = 300Watt power pack.

My Malibu 200 Watt Power Pack/Transformer & Timer - ML200RT powers up but won't turn on lights. Is there a fuse that can be replaced in the unit?


There is no fuse and no repair parts

I've been all over the Malibulights.com website looking for anything that might help the large number of people with Malibu questions. The website has very little information and no parts and the site offers no help except the following:

1) Malibu gets the customer money, and other people troubleshoot for their customers
2) When buying a power pack, the total bulb wattage on the line has to match the power pack wattage
10 - 20 watt bulbs = 200 Watt power pack
15 -20 watt bulbs = 300 Watt power pack
http://www.malibulights.com/guides_support/low_voltage_planning_guide/select_your_power_pack.aspx
If your power pack is oversized, it will burn out the bulbs and burn out the power pack

3) A power pack makes a humming noise when it has power >>> check your power source if power pack won't work >>> no other troubleshooting is offered
4) Replace burned out bulbs ASAP or the power pack burns out the other bulbs
5) Unplug power pack when working on bulbs [otherwise, the power pack burns out which is why people write fixya asking why their power pack won't work after replacing all their bulbs]
6) Nowhere on the Malibu site does it offer-or-explain burned out power packs or power packs that don't work, but they show plenty of new products for you to buy.

Getting sticky, losing time as a result. No longer dependable for super time keeping as before. Is any lube, etc possible?


Power packs wear out

Usually people have old power pack and then remove all the bulbs while replacing and doing maintenance, and the old power pack burns up because it has no load. Unplug power pack when replacing all the bulbs, and keep burned-out bulbs replaced

In your case, the plastic gears have gotten dirty over time. Gears are probably worn. Un-plug power pack and spray WD-40 in and around plastic dial. Turn dial to see if it gets better.

Power pack should match total wattage of bulbs

10 - 20 watt bubs = 200 Watt power pack

10 - 15 watt bulbs = 300 Watt power pack
