Customer Questions & Answers

I have a 200 watt unit--it will be 2 yrs old on 5/30/16. It has worked fine. Now it stays on 24 hrs, regardless of the setting. It will not turn off.

Asked by: recycler
It probably got a power surge and that's scrambled the electronics. Just recently happened to me. I'll stick with mechanical timers from now on, easier to keep running and the brains won't get fried when a power surge happens.

Lights not working

I insalled all the transformer with 5 LED lights, everything worked perfect for 8 days, now the lights don't turn on, I have to reset the circuit, they lights turn on for 15 seconds and they go off again, any clues? I already checked all the wires and everything seems to be perfect, could it be the transformer? Thanks

for how many lights is this transformer?

Asked by: Anonymous
You have to total up your lights wattage, this wattage total should not exceed the transformers max wattage.

HOW do you run 2 separate lines from this unit?

I saw in previous Q&A that you can run two separate lines... however, I think there is only 1 spot for them to attach to the transformer. How do you properly connect the second line?
Asked by: Gretchen
If you have extra wire left over from your first run that is long enough to accommodate your second run, cut it off about a foot beyond your last light connection. Put a piece of duct tape over the end. Take the spare piece of wire, strip the ends and hook it up to the same terminals as the first run. If you don't have enough wire, purchase another roll and use it hooked up the same way. The terminals will easily accommodate two sets of wires.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy this. it's garbage It lasted a year. The transformer kept going out and began making a loud buzzing sound.

Twice before the timing circuit has failed. Once it wouldn't turn on at all. The next time the lights were always on; even turning the switch to off would not turn off the lights. The last time the unit lasted for 2.5 years before failure. There is only a one year limited warantee.

Now all it does is quickly display a time and no other functions work. Appears to not be suitable for outdoor use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only one on-off period My last 200W Malibu had the old, familiar plastic clock face with movable pegs for setting the on-off periods. It came with two sets of pegs so you could have the lights come on in the evening, go off at midnight or so, then back on for a while in the early morning hours. The new digital version has lots of options, but only allows one on-off period. To accomplish what I am used to, I'll have to install a timer between the power and the transformer. Don't product developers ever use their own products? I've had good luck with Malibu transformers, but I could have done without the digital clock (that you can hardly read in the daylight) and wish they would not have eliminated the additional time period.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Listen to the Reviews! I should have read the reviews before buying old Malibu (with the rotary timer and pins) never gave me a lick of trouble...until a hail storm did a number on it. I bought this unit to replace it. At first, I was like some of the five-star reviewers - loved it! First, it fit perfectly onto the old mounting screws which made me very happy that I didn't have to drill into brick (and the reason for replacing with the same brand), second - the dusk/dawn sensor and digital read-out are vast improvements over fumbling with pins, and finally, the magnetic door to seal everything away from the elements (like hail) is awesome. However, that's where the love ends. After just three months of flawless on-at-dusk/off-at-set-number-of-hours timing, the circuit breaker decided to go haywire. At first I thought it was the South Texas heat, but then I read all of these reviews. I go out and hit the breaker, lights come on, within 30 minutes (time varies) they're off again. I'm off to buy another brand. Yes, it's under warranty...but A) who saves receipts for purchases under $100? B) is it worth the hassle to call their 800 number, get a return authorization, box it up, wait, etc.? Nope.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from didnt last 6 months got mine in Nov 2013, stopped working in march 2014. Brought back to home depot - of course i dont have a receipt - and becuase of that i need to send to malibu for warranty of 1 yr. home depot would exchange under 90days with receipt. bottom line, you are risking defect - save receipt and be prepared to pay shipping to malibu for warranty. someone please comment if you know of a brand thats any good, i use 4 of these to run my lights. i am tired of the junk !!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Malibu not built to last! My yard lights were flashing on & off like it was Christmas. I thought it was a bad photocell but after troubleshooting found that the transformer was failing after a year and a half. This was my third failed Malibu transformer and after reading the reviews I now realize it was due to poor quality and not electrical surges or weather.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from only works for short period of time I don't know why I went back for the 3rd one to replace the ones that didn't work prior. It worked great for about 1 month, then it wouldn't turn off. Then I got another one & the breaker keeps tripping; same for the next one. I should have stopped then, but off to buy another brand & hope for the best.
