My furnace won't light. American standard. About 13 years old. No pilot. I shut gas off for five minutes. Still blowing cold air. Any suggestions

The most common issue would be the gas valve has failed or the transformer is defective, I strongly suggest you call a professional service business as this can be a fire/explosion hazard.

We have a Malibu 300 low wattage transformer for 13- 20 watt landscape lights.

Try connecting a lamp (correct voltage, etc) directly to the transformer. Most likely, the wire from the transformer to your lights is broken... The reset button can't reset anything, if there's nothing wrong there.

Schematic malibu 8100-9120-01

I don't think they post schematic for the transformer
But generally, the primary coil receives 120Volt AC input from household electrical outlet
And the secondary coil produces 12Volt AC output for the low voltage lights.
The 'coil' is a coil of insulated wire wrapped around a metal core. Two coils set side by side create a transformer... when primary is energized, the secondary responds to the magnetic field caused by primary core... resulting in a current that flows on the secondary coil.
Output voltage on secondary coil is determined by the number of wraps and diameter of wire.

Some transformers offer a choice of secondary output... Kichler for example... you can select 12-13-14-15 Volt AC output
This is achieved by the way the secondary coil is wrapped.... for less voltage a wire is tapped at one point on the coil... for more voltage, a wire is tapped at another point on coil. This gives the user several wire choices to connect the lights.

Mark 7 work for awhile and stops

Sounds like the input circut board. they had an issue with a resetable fuse. it will damage the PCB, so it will need the entire board replaced.

Pool ligth stop working

10-16-2012
Question posted under T10004RT3 pool panel with transformer.

If the pool light inside the swimming pool is out, but bulbs are new, then those lights receive power from the transformer. Check if transformer is humming and putting out 12Volts ac.
Check that bulbs are rated for transformer output voltage.
Replace transformer with 119T340 or 119T267.

If the 120Volt lights are not working, then these usually turn on-off with a switch. Check the switch

There is no sound from my speakers

Dose the green LED light up at the front ? . If it does not its a power supply issue. You must have burnt the transformer in the power supply unit. If the light lights up ans there is no sound it could be the Amplifier Chip (IC ) problem. This will involve soldering and desoldering work not to mention procuring the IC.Cos wise the IC just cost about 3$ ans the transformer about 7$.

I have a self-installed Leviton TTI06-1LM dimmer (600w capacity) that controls a halogen light that uses 12x 12v/20w (140w total) halogen lights. The dimmer works fine, but once a day, or perhaps every...

Your issue is that the dimmer is not rated to handle the type of fixture/lamps its controlling.

From a lighting control standpoint, the 12V-lamps classify as "low-voltage halogen" and, somewhere in that circuit, have a transformer(s) converting the 120V~ down to 12V~. Using incandescent dimmers (like the one you are using) can cause compatibility issues with those transformers. What I suspect is happening is that the incompatibily is either throwing voltage spikes or current spikes on the line which are causing the dimmer to enter some sort of "safety" mode to shut everything down before any problems occur.

My recommendation is to first figure out what type of transformer it is: Either magnetic low-voltage, or electronic low-voltage. Ideally you would contact the transformer manufacturer (or look up their specs online) to figure that out. Other rules of thumb: if the transformer's big & bulky, it's probably magnetic - conversely if its lightweight, it's probably electronic. If its only one transformer controlling all of the lamps together, it's probably magnetic - conversely if its one of those transformers where the transformer and light bulb come togheter as one assembled unit and then snap into the track, it's probably electronic.

Then make sure the dimmer is rated for magnetic low-voltage, or electronic low-voltage (depending upon what the transformer is).

Intermatic ML300RTW not working

Yes this loose strands is probably the issue, the Transformer is working too hard and shuts down. you can make sure by removing all the bulbs but the last one and turning the transformer on, if it fails- you've got bad wiring. move the x-former closer to the lights so you don't have very much bad wiring.

What Kind of Dimmer?

If the low voltage lighting system uses an electronic transformer, then a dimmer designed for this type of transformer should be used. Likewise, if the low voltage lighting system uses a magnetic transformer, then a dimmer designed for this type of transformer should be used.
