Hello Steve. Usually 2 years is the point at which all halogen lamps should be replaced at the same time. Halogen lamps usually only last a couple of years and when a few go out, the rest are not far behind. When a lamp does go out it allows more voltage to flow to other lamps which usually means they are becoming over volted and will burn out quickly. Halogen lamps work best between 10.8 and 11.5 volts and if they get more than 12 volts they will not last long. Professional series low voltage transformers may have voltages of 15 or even 22 volts to compensate for voltage drop on a system. You can do a couple of things here. First, you can relamp your entire system at the same time, making sure you use the same wattage light bulbs that were originally installed. I would then suggest that you lower the voltage taps for each of your wires in the transformer to cut the amount of voltage going to each light by 1 volt which will really extend the life of the light bulbs (lamps). They may not seem as bright however on those lower voltage taps. One other thing you could do would be to convert the system to LED which would eliminate all of the problems you are having since they operate in much larger voltage ranges. I hope this helps.

Hello Steve. It sounds like you have a voltage problem. Check the voltage at the light fixtures, with them installed, to see what your actual voltage is at their locations. If they are 12 volt halogen or incandescent light bulbs they will need at least 11 watts of energy to look like they are not dimmed. The lower the voltage is at that point, the dimmer the lights will appear. To correct the problem you will either have to increase the size of the wire from the transformer, lower the wattage of your lamps or get a transformer with higher voltage taps to compensate for the voltage drop.

1. Burned out lamps (light bulbs). Because there are so many incandescent and halogen outdoor lighting systems out there, we get calls all the time asking for help with these systems. We arrive to find lot of lamps burned out. This may not seem like a big deal, but let me tell you why it really can be a big and costly deal. If we are talking about a DIY lighting system made up of products from a big box store (we do not work on these by the way), it’s probably installed in the dreaded “daisy chain” wiring method. This is bad because the first light is bright; the second is a little dimmer, and so on down the line. None of the lamps actually get the proper voltage and will burn out prematurely. This can also happen with professional grade outdoor lighting using a multi-tap transformer. These systems are balanced to operate between 10.5 and 11.5 volts — a very tight window. Depending on the size of the wire, distance from the transformer and voltage tap of the transformer that it is hooked up to, a single lamp burn outcan send too much voltage to the other lights on that circuit causing them to burn out prematurely. The moral here is that regular maintenance on a halogen/incandescent outdoor lighting system is crucial. We recommend maintenance at least twice each year for these types of systems, with a complete re-lamp every two years.

You are welcome sir and I’m glad to help. First, do you have a volt meter? If so, turn your transformer on and check the voltage coming out of the secondary (where your low voltage wires are hooked up). You’ll put one probe of the common and one probe on the 12 volt tap. See if any voltage comes out when the transformer turns on. If no voltage is coming out, check to see if there is a reset switch on your transformer. Some of them do and some do not but if yours does, go ahead and reset it. If it trips again, you most likely still have a short somewhere which is causing it to trip and you’ll need to make that repair. If you have no voltage coming out at all and your reset is fine, your controller or transformer itself has been damaged by your earlier problems and needs to be replaced. If so, I recommend stepping up to a professional grade transformer which can usually be purchased at a local irrigation supply house. Good luck and let me know how it goes.
