My guess is the power switch is shot.

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 don't know if you already solved the problem, but did you check what the maximum output power of your aircraft is? The nespresso machine needs about 1250 Watts, which is a lot of power. A vacuum cleaner or microwave use less power than that (maybe between 800 - 1000 Watts). Maybe that difference is the reason. Also, you mentioned that you converted from 220V 50Hz to 120V 60Hz. I think you only converted the voltage, a frequency converter would cost thousands of dollars.

There are no fixes for Power Packs once they go bad.
"Harry" wrote in with a work-around: He purchased inexpensive plug-in timer, set power pack to override, and then plugged power pack into wall timer.

Harry also said his power pack gave out after 4 years and he was negoiating with Malibulights.com for the 5 year warranty. No word how that was resolved.

Some guys write into fixya saying they took the timer apart and messed around with it, but I've never heard anyone say they fixed it. Once the little motors and gears malfunction, the motor slows down, and when motors slow, they overheat and lose power. New Power Packs at Home Depot are digital.

After hours looking for power pack solutions at Intermatic, Malubulights.com, ebay, Home Depot etc, the best I found were tips for next power pack that might save money:
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.

Suddenly my inverter connected lights stopped working, i went and saw what happened to my inverter, everything was fine in terms of lights that it indicates in normal conditions, only i saw a fuse was...


The most likely reason is that you tried to draw more power than it was capable of supplying. The maximum amount the inverter can supply is usually measured in watts and should be written on it. If the inverter can supply 60 watts it should in theory be able to operate a 60 watt bulb. In practice however if you draw the maximum that the inverter can supply it will cause something to give. You should use no more than 45 watts from a 60 watt inverter i.e. approx three quarters of the rated watts.

My ML200RT Malibu Transformer is working bu the timer is not. I hear it ticking but the timer doesn't rotate. I can manually rotate the timer to turn the lights on and off. If I buy a cheap timer for...


If the timer does not rotate, then the clock motor gears have been stripped, or the motor has gotten weak.
With most expensive timers, you can buy and replace the clock motor.
But not with the Malibu power pack.

I tried spraying WD-40 on my timer dial.
And broke the power pack apart looking for ways to disassemble it.
Power packs are one-piece units.
New power packs have electronic clock, so test your circuit with circuit analyzer before assuming new electronic gizmo will work better.

"Harry" wrote in two months ago with a brilliant work-around.
His timer stopped working.
He bought a cheap plug-in timer and then connected power pack to that timer.

Harry also said that his power pack has 5 year warranty.
He was 'negotiating' with malibulights.com over the warranty.
I hope he writes back and says how it went.

My transformer stopped working after the last rain but had been working fine for the past several months


When power pack malfunctions, you have to buy another one

I have looked for solutions at Intermatic, at malibulights.com and the internet

Your next power pack:
Match up wattage of bulbs with wattage of power pack
15 - 20 watt bulbs = 300 watts
-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

I've done a lot of reading and research on Malibu

No replacement parts for Power pack, or schematic >> Malibulights.com shows replacement lights and replacement power packs
Manual for Malibu 600 Watt power pack

SAVE the pins off old power pack and see if they match pins on new power pack ... because you can't find pins on the internet

When the power pack goes bad or you lose the pins, then you buy another power pack

Things to remember:
Match number of lights to power pack wattage
30 - 20 Watt bulbs => 30 x 20 = 600 Watt power pack
Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out, or other bulbs will burn out quickly, and I think it causes power pack to burn out sooner too.

Up-vote if this helped. Thanks for the feedback.

Question about light bulb problem in ceiling fan


Check wiring @ ceiling. Should b a black, white, green & red wire coming frm fan. Green is ground. Black & Red is power. White is neutral. Black provides power to fan, red provides lat power 4 lights. Remove light assembly, blue wire provides power. B sure 2 turn off power 2 fan b 4 working on it w/switch & breaker. Maybe lose wire connection or pinched wire grounding out. Fans require vibration proof bulbs regular bulb elements will break after short time use. Fan bulbs have larger filiments inside bulb.
