The PB912M10 motor/timer unit in my Malibu outdoor lighting system has failed. Motor is running and I can see gears turning, but will not trip the off/on switch. Can I purchase this as a direct replacement?

SOURCE: Whirlpool LSR7133KQ0 no pumpout, rinse, or spin.

NO...the problem you are describing are the typical symptoms of a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch shuts the washer off when you open the lid while the drum is spinning. This is a safety feature to prevent injury from moving parts if you decide to add a garment or stick your hands in the tub for some reason while it is in operation. On some model Whirpool's the washer WILL work initially for the wash cycle, then stop when it gets to the rinse cycle. I would recommend you check your lid switch to make it is not loose or broken. Your washer is also equipped with a lid strike (a small plastic piece on the lid that activates the switch) make sure it is not broken off or missing. This will give the same symptoms of a broken lid switch.

If you require a replacement switch, they can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com, or you can go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. The part number for the switch is 3949247. The lid strike (if required) is part number 358684. If you need instructions on how to replace the lid switch, you can use this link if you like:

I don't know how savvy you are, so I thought I would add the instructions just in case. I hope you find all this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

SOURCE: Outdoor fan motor is not running fast enough?

Thanks for the suggestion. I figured out the problem. The replacement fan motor I bought was general fan motor. it had 5 wires. Two of them went to the capacitor (this unit has combo capacitor, 3 leg). I followed the schematic diag on the motor and connected one leg to the C and the other leg to the FAN on capacitor. what was happening, the start winding was working against the run winding in the motor. Once I switch the wires in the capacitor, fan ran at full speed. thanks again for your reply.

Let's review your wiring. There's probably something miswired when you get symptoms like that. Let's work one circuit at a time.

For circuit #1, the incoming (LINE) black (hot) wire is connected to the #3 terminal. The white (neutral) is connected to the "A" terminal. The bare equipment grounding wire is connected to the "GR" terminal (the green screw on the case).

The outgoing (LOAD) black wire to the first set of lights is connected to terminal #4 and the outgoing white (neutral) wire connects to the "A" terminal. The outgoing bare wire to the lights goes to the "GR" terminal. It's best to twist the wires together with a pigtail, wirenut them and connect the pigtail to the "GR" terminal.

Now for separate circuit #2. The incoming (LINE) black (hot) connects to terminal #1. The incoming white (neutral) connects to terminal "A". The incoming bare wire connects to the "GR" terminal.

The outgoing (LOAD) black wire to the 2nd set of lights connects to the #2 terminal. The outgoing white (neutral) goes to the "A" terminal. It's OK to twist all the white neutral wires (incoming _and_ outgoing for _both_ circuits) together with a pigtail that goes to the "A" terminal. Use a red wirenut.

As long as you don't load the 15 amp breaker over 12 amps (this is considered a continuous circuit and it cannot be loaded over 80% per NEC), you don't have to have two circuits if you don't want too. Figure about 1 amp per light as long as the lights aren't over 100 watt. (100 watt lamp/120 volts = 0.83 amps (round to one amp)

SOURCE: E100 scooter wont run. Battery

It is possible the new controller is defective, however just because the voltage is showing 24v it may not be outputting the correct amount of amps so don not rule out batteries before checking the following:
To test a battery you need to 'load test' so (with help) connect the battery directly to the motor when weight is on the scooter to see if it will still pull.
Please also remember that you do have to push the e100 to 3mph before starting (many users do not know or forget this step)

If clock motor no longer operates, you can set power pack to override and then plug power pack into cheap in-wall timer.
Some people report being able to disassemble clock motor and clean gears and reassemble with a bit of white grease on gears. Other people report they took it apart and forgot to mark the tiny gears and couldn't reassemble the parts. My experience with clock motors and motors in general is once they slow down and overheat, they never work correctly again and are sorely underpowered afterwards. It would be easier to buy a cheap plug-in timer.

Timer will not tirun on the lights, it stops when it gets to the time to turn on.


Malibu home page
Malibu manuals

Try the manual override >>> un-plug power pack and try loosening manual override with WD-40

It sounds like the clock motor is unable to push the manual override
Don't continue to run power pack or the clock motor will burn up or break a plastic gear

If manual override will not work, or clock will not trip on lights, you need a new power pack
Power pack size chart and wire length

Be sure to buy same wattage power pack as you have
The 300 Watt unit is made for 15 - 20watt bulbs (15 x 20 = 300)
If you buy 600 Watt power pack and hook it up to 10 - 20 watt bulbs, it will burn out the bulbs
Manual also says to replace burned out bulbs ASAP or other bulbs will burn out.
