    The Apex was made to burn out and you can't get parts for them unless you go to ebay and find one for parts only the transformer is made just for the company who builds the units. I had to fix meny of those, but you can make them last longer by installing a second cooling fan pointed at the power board and when not in use unplug it from the wall.

    The power supply has burn marks on the pcb. The unit shows no lights when plugged in. Several capacitors show signs of melting.

The Power supply was made to fail on this model. I would recommend using a Regular Computer Power Supply. It would cost $20 to $30 dollars for a brand new supply if you don't already have one to use.

Can the two transformers be hooked in parallel to service a 500 W zone?

If you are talking about low voltage light transformers, then answer is probably NO... but you could try it and see if it works... but I am almost certain that both transformers will probably burn out.
Output is 12 Volt AC... the transformer coils will probably burn out because the waveform from each transformer cannot be guaranteed to be the same.... even if both transformers are seemingly identical and plugged into same outlet.

For additional information, read transformer installation tips on following page.

Power company transformers can be wired together in specific ways to produce 3-phase waveform, but these transformers are specifically engineered for the task. And the transformers do not combine the output (as you would be doing with yard transformer), instead each power company transformer produces 1 leg of power in a 3-leg power supply.

How do i rewire a broomwade 3 phase compressor 1970

Rewire for ?? High voltage motor wiring is L1-T1, L2-T2, L3-T3, T4-T7, T5-T8, T6-T9. Low voltage is L1-T1-T4, L2-T2-T5, L3-T3-T6. The motor protection overloads will need to be sized accordingly, to the motor's FLA ( full load amps) for the voltage used. The control needs to be looked at also, if there is a control transformer, the transformer needs to be wired or repaced for the new supply power voltage used.

Hello! I have a Malibu transformer for my outdoor lighting. Last night, we had a severe rain storm. During the storm, my outdoor lighting went out. When I went to check the transformer box this...

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.

Blown transformer

I also have the GPX under-counter TV, same problem. I believe the transformer is AC-AC, because both wires out are red... I actually have two of these units, one doesn't work at all, the other has enough power to play the radio, but not the TV. I swapped the transformer from 1 into the one that was completely dead thinking #1 had a bad tuner, but the same symptoms exist now in #2, making me think that one transformer is completely gone and the other is malfunctioning. I'll try the VX 79NP on both and try to remember to post the results back here....

36" RCA- loud whine/squeal when it is plugged in, otherwise no power.

The HOT Hortz output transistor has gone home, 99% of the time from a faulty IVHT (Flyback Transformer), very common on the ctc187cl* chassis. The factory Flyback is no longer available, I have had problems finding an aftermarket one to replace it with.

The HOT is a BUH517, but you can also use a 2SD5129. It is the transistor mounted on the siler heat sink with a metal clip rather than a screw, just in front of the flyback.....

If you replace just the HOT, most of the time you will get a rapid arc (27,000volts - BE CAREFUL!!!) from the lower (yoke) post on the flyback. If the flyback is shorted, It may also just burn out the HOT and go right back to "squealing"....

Good luck finding the flyback!!!
