SOURCE: I just bought a new Malibu Landscape Lighting 200

working with those outdoors transformer I have ran into couple would short the unit out by installing it wrong or exposing to lots of waters/moister. Again, it could also be a factory fault unit, some products will only last only few days before it blow out. It happen and most of those unit have 5 years warranty on them. I would take it back and get another and if it happens again than you may not installing it correctly or installing too close exposing to lots of moister and may short the unit out. I don't recommend trying to fix it still having warranty on them, get a replacement and start over. good luck and i hope that help some

SOURCE: how do I do the wire connection to the

I'm assuming that you have a cord that has 2 leads, similar to a black extension cord. Connect one lead to the farthest one on the left screw, skip the middle screw, then connect the other lead to the right screw. Why they did this might be because they used a standard terminal block on all their product and were too lazy to take out the middle screw.

SOURCE: My Malibu 200 Watt Power

There is no fuse and no repair parts

I've been all over the Malibulights.com website looking for anything that might help the large number of people with Malibu questions. The website has very little information and no parts and the site offers no help except the following:

1) Malibu gets the customer money, and other people troubleshoot for their customers
2) When buying a power pack, the total bulb wattage on the line has to match the power pack wattage
10 - 20 watt bulbs = 200 Watt power pack
15 -20 watt bulbs = 300 Watt power pack
http://www.malibulights.com/guides_support/low_voltage_planning_guide/select_your_power_pack.aspx
If your power pack is oversized, it will burn out the bulbs and burn out the power pack

3) A power pack makes a humming noise when it has power >>> check your power source if power pack won't work >>> no other troubleshooting is offered
4) Replace burned out bulbs ASAP or the power pack burns out the other bulbs
5) Unplug power pack when working on bulbs [otherwise, the power pack burns out which is why people write fixya asking why their power pack won't work after replacing all their bulbs]
6) Nowhere on the Malibu site does it offer-or-explain burned out power packs or power packs that don't work, but they show plenty of new products for you to buy.

Tripper might be worn down and not pushing switch.
Switch might be broken or worn down.
Improvise by setting timer to override and plug power into cheap plug-in timer.

Kill the power at the fuse box, remove the light fixture and make sure your wires are not shorted behind the fixture... usually happens when they are bunched up in the electrical box and squeezed.... could be a fire hazzard

You posted under Intermatic or Malibu power packs:
These units come with 5-year limited warranty.
Check that override button is working correctly and that trippers are in place.
If timer is defective, then exchange for new one.

Apparently the motor is working but the timer is not running


These dang power packs don't have replacement parts. You can see if the manual override turns lights on and off. The power pack makes a humming noise. If the timer is not rotating, then try setting the current time.

Malibu manuals are located on this page
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 http://www.malibulights.com/customer_service/owners_manuals.aspx

If you buy another one, be sure to match up total wattage of bulbs to the power pack wattage.
For example 10 - 20 watt bulbs = 200 Watts >> you should buy 200 Watt power pack
15 - 20 watt bulbs = 300 Watt power pack
Oversized power pack will burn out the bulbs
Also if you let bulbs burn out, it will shorten life of power pack
Unplug the power pack when working on the bulbs
