How do you set the timer on a Malibu lighting transformer?

Quick Answer

To set the timer on a Malibu Lighting transformer, users should first turn the dial until the arrow lines up with the correct current time, then set the green tripper at the time they want the lights to turn on and the red tripper to the time they want the lights to turn off. They can then rotate the manual override wheel to turn the lights on if the current time is within the "on" interval of the green and red trippers. The timer does not take into account daylight savings time, so the timer may need to be readjusted twice a year.

Malibu lighting kits offer scheduled outdoor lighting. The lights can be programmed to turn on and off on a timer.

  1. Set the timer to the correct time
  2. Turn the timer dial so that the arrow points at the correct current time.

  3. Set the on and off trippers
  4. The trippers have a groove that allows them to be pushed in next to the dial. Place the green tripper at the time on the dial that the lights should turn on, and the red tripper at the time that the lights should turn off.

  5. Set the lights to on or off and finish setting the timer
  6. Use the manual override wheel to turn the lights either on or off. If the current time is within the interval that the lights should be on, turn the lights on. If the lights should be off, use the wheel to make sure the lights are off. Close the lid of the unit and the light timer should be set.
