August 15, 2015
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

Answer: 
Max capacity is 200watts for this transformer. Add the watt rating for each bulb you plan to install. The total should equal to or less than 200watts.

Answer: 
There is no set number of lights, you just need to make sure the sum of all watts for all the lights does not exceed 200-Watts.

Answer: 
It is the wattage of the lights that determines this, not any number. Add up the wattages on the circuit you want to install, and that number must be less than 200. For instance- 4 spot lights at 50watts each is 200w, 18 walk lights at 11w each is 198 watts. You can mix and match wattages but stay below 200 by a little bit

Answer: 
I have one of these units that is several years old. The digital timer is terrible. I use the Auto setting via the photo cell. It has worked great for years without needing to adjust the timer if the power goes off, etc.
Will your unit turn on/off using AUTO and the photo cell? If so, I suggest you use it. If not, might be time for a new unit. Malibu filed for bankruptcy and is no longer in business.

Think there is no fix for that unless you are an electrical circuit repair person. Unplug the eye sensor and use stranded timer . If eye is covered it will turn on 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?

Answer: 
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 Read More

Answer: 
I installed to replace just this situation. I had to buy a length of wire and a couple of good wire nuts and create a wiring harness to connect to the single set of terminals.
Hope that helps a bit!

Answer: 
You would need to just place the 2 sets of wires in the same terminals or look at our 600W transformer which has multiple terminal sets.

Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 148 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waisting my valuable time This product lasted a week before it quit. The lights wont turn off even when the switch is set to off July 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst Quality 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. July 21, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 8, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Going back for second one yes junk yes cheap Need one of these every 2 years. At $69 why not buy as easy install (most are) fits my location. Going today for my 3rd..Am I stupid?? Fits the spot for it and takes 15 min to cut off plug and wire into my box inchs away. April 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Malibu Transformer Right out of the box. Timer setting buttons wouldn't work at all. Tried returning to Home Depot (it was over 30 days)- no luck. Malibu doesn't even have a website anymore. Does that tell you something??? April 18, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Outlived the warranty I bought the unit from HD in March of 2015. It died yesterday, a couple of weeks after the warranty expired. April 2, 2016
