I have a Malibu 300 watt transformer that is 4 years old. it is working but after about 15 minutes the lights turn off and the red rest button pops. I tested so it is not the outlet.

check what you have running from the transformer
if it uses more than 280 watts the transformer is overheating and throwing the reset button

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.

I have (7) 20W bulbs on a newly wired line running on a brand new 200W Malibu transformer, worked fine for 2 days and now it's tripping the reset button - Any suggestions ??

Inspect for damage on outdoor outlet.
Replace outdoor outlet, and do not use quick connects. Connect wire directly to screws on side of device.
Replace GFCI outlet.

The digital transformer has 5 year warranty.
Otherwise plug power pack into cheap wall timer

Don't buy digital. This type timer can be easily knocked out with simple power outage.
Also bulb outages and cord problems and moisture and probably direct sun can affect digital more easily than analog.

I bought a Malibu 300W low voltage landscape transformer to replace a 200W unit that stopped working. It worked for 1 week, then stopped .. the reset **** doen't work. The LED works, I do see a...

I don't know if it burned out, but something is not right.
Malibu products come with 1-5 year warranty.
New product that stopped working should be exchanged for full replacement at place of purchase, except possibly the auction sites.
New Malibu product should work for many years.
Be sure to match bulb voltage with transformer voltage to avoid possible problems.
Mismatched bulb and transformer wattage should not affect a timer in short period such as 1 week.
Another thing to check is outlet polarity. Use circuit analyzer from home center to check outlet.

My malibu transformer has a reset button on the back near the terminal connections. If the transformer is on (time displays on the panel) but the light fixtures are not lit, look for the reset button on the back and depress it.
