I have a Hampton Bay Model XR071 300W Landscape Power Unit which has worked fine up until recently when I drove in a few days agon and my entire front yard was flashing on and off. I tried to power down the unit and let it sit however when plugging it back in I had the same results. Is the transformer bad?

Answer: 
The transformer is still fine, it just means there is less than 20w being drawn on the circuit -- the flashing problem is mentioned briefly in the manual, and it says the circuit requires at least 20w. If the lights used to work fine but they just started to flash, a bulb must have burnt out on your circuit so that the remaining ones are now drawing too little current. The same thing happened to me Read More

If the lights used to work fine but they just started to flash, a bulb must have burnt out on your circuit so that the remaining ones are now drawing too little current. The same thing happened to me (although I've found that a single 11w bulb is sufficient). This could also happen if you replace all your incandescent bulbs with LED bulbs that draw too little current. Read Less

I need one with three connection locations. My current unit has 'high', 'com' and 'low' ports. Unfortunately, the picture does not show the bottom of the unit.

Check Circuit Light is on

This question is from 300-watt Landscape Lighting Transformer
Asked by
Massapequa, NY
Read all my Q&A
August 12, 2014
I have a Hampton Bay Landscape Power Unit. Input: 120V AC, 60Hz, 2.6A, Output: 12V/14V AC. Max 300 watt lamp load. SKL.XR034 -- SKU#590-313. Vendor# RK610543. It has been working great for about 6 years now. This week I noticed it was making a buzzing sound & the lights were no longer going on. When I looked at the unit I noticed the Check Circuit light was red. I unplugged the unit & plugged it back in. Now it doesn't light up any buttons, nor can I test the lights. Does anyone have any suggestions -- I see on the back of the unit there is a small face plate that can be removed with a small screw - is there a fuse in there that needs replacing or is my whole unit shot?
Thanks for any help you can provide.

Answer: 
It sounds like to me the landscape wire outside may have grounded out…meaning the positive and negative wires at the end of the run or somewhere along the wire are touching together. Sometimes the wire casing can degrade in the sun causing the positive and negative copper wires to make contact and cause this.

Maybe try trouble shooting and connect a new fresh landscape short wire to the transformer and connect one light fixture to see if the xfmr still works with one light on the system. Thanks.... Read Less

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well worth the money These transformers are no longer offered in store, and may only be ordered online, which is a negative. Significantly more costly than other transformers of the same wattage. However, they do seem to be of superior quality and function for years with absolutely no maintenance. In commercial applications I prefer this brand to the less expensive offerings. August 15, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Short life I had this powering 200 watts of lights, for two years, The unit then gave up the magic smoke and died. January 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does the Job I have had this unit for years and it has worked flawlessly. There isn't much to it, it just works. I wanted a single unit that could handle all of my landscape lighting without worrying about too little power and this unit has not dissipated me. The connectors for the low voltage lines are a bit clumsy, but you can put up with that because you only have to connect the wires once. Check the price, I don't remember paying over $100, but I could have, it has been a while. June 15, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by this product did not have two circuits I returned the item since your website did not explain it did not have dual circuits for the transformer. May 20, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by First One Whined, Second One DOA & Used So ordering from Home Depot rocked and it shipped to my home quickly but when it was on it made a high pitched whine. I returned it to my local Home Depot and ordered another. I just tested the new one and it doesn't even work. It is obviously used. July 25, 2013
