Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kikarikki no support on this product
Like others have said, Malibu doesn't even have a website. This product was installed by my landscape designer and I don't believe I ever got a manual for it. So, when I do an online search for a user manual, you can't even find one. No support whatsoever. I had someone look at it and they said there is a bypass function where you should be able to turn the lights on. The programming doesn't seem to be working right. My guess is that it is not working properly and needs to be replaced. It would have been nice to be able to look up a manual online to doublecheck we are doing everything correctly. One link, Bobsmanuals, did not work and just brought up a bunch of ads and my virus software wanted to block it, so not worth trying to proceed any further on that one....

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Willa1962 No Opinion...just offering help for those looking for a manual...
For those experiencing issues, I also was not able to find a manual so I decided to look through the Installation Guide link for this product and it does have a section on page 2 on the left side on how to operate the Power Pack.
Hope this helps.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ThermalHunter09 The Malibu 8100-0300-01 300 watt transformer was not one of my best purchases from HD!
The transformer was very noisy and it failed in the on position after 5 years. Not sure on the value since it was very noisy for all of the 5 years of service.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jc 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.

I have owned two of these and they last just long enough to be out of warranty then they go bad. I am going to purchase a different brand this time and see if I have better results.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by hdfap Nice design, poor quality
Quit right after the warranty ended. Also their toll free number on the instructions was disconnected and their direct web address no longer appears to work.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by hb 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 !!!!!
