Describe your Malibu 121W Power

Power pack wattage has to match bulb wattage, or it shortens life of power pack.
I don't know physics and electrical engineering enough to know why this happens.
Also when working on bulbs, manual says to unplug power pack so it doesn't burn up.
If bulb is under water that's fine, but wiring cannot be underwater where it shorts out, or suspect this action might also shorten life of power pack.
With receipt, power pack could still be under warranty.

Power pack doesnt work and

'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.
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.

Power into unit ok power

If you have a volt meter, check the voltage, I believe it is supposed to be 12 volts.
Are your bulbs the proper voltage rating, that is 12 volts.
Do you have enough bulbs connected to the transformer, connected load should be close to 121 watts when you add up all your bulb wattages.
Don't confuse volts with watts. The transformer reduces voltage to 12 volts, but the wattage of the transformer is 121 watts. Each bulb must be 12 volts but wattage (brightness) can vary depending on the fixture from maybe 7 watts to over 50 watts.
