POWER TRANSFORMER KEEPS GOING OUT

THIS HEATER (3E369D) IS POSSESSED. OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS IT HAS CONSUMED MANY TRANSFORMERS. SOMETIMES IT WOULD USE 2 PER SEASON(2MONTHS), SOMETIMES IT WOULD LAST 2 DAYS. ONE ACTUALLY LASTED 2 YEARS. NEED SOME INFO ON WHAT THE MOST LIKELY COMPONENT WOULD BE AT FAULT OR IF THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM AND WHAT IS THE FIX?

You obviously have an intermittent low voltage short. I would visually inspect all low voltage wiring to try to locate the problem. Pay good attention to the limit circuit, I have seen wires melted to the inducer housing before causing this problem. also, install a 3A fuse inline till you find the problem to save on transformers.

My furnance keeps turning off and I could go to furnance flip switch on and it only last 5 minutes then shuts off again


You may want to check the limit switch or you could have a issue with the gas valve or transformer. I would check the low voltage transformer first, Sometimes I have found that under load the transformer will open ( quit working) and will close after power is removed and it cools down, It indicates a bad internal connection.

When the unit powers up it blows the fuse at the primary transformer side of the pc board. Is the transformer bad, how do I check the transformer to see if it bad?


If the smoke got out of it it's bad. ;-)
Most transformers are 110v and 220v be sure how you are wiring it. I this is a Hayward heater you can find a book for it at
http://www.haywardnet.com/inground/products/manuals.cfm
Their are a couple of different heaters but they should all take the same transformer. I would go ahead and find the correct heater and print the book so you have it.
Once your sure of the wiring make sure you have the proper power going to the unit. To say if it is kicking the breaker you may just be getting half the power to come back on. Then unhook the transformer from the heater and see how much power you have. If your not getting a full 24v you may have burnt half the transformer. This means a new transformer. If it is still kicking the fuse you need to check all the wiring to the box and make sure that your problem is not there. If it's not kicking the fuse and you have good power, It will be in your heater and you will have to go through that to check for shorts. Your book will have a trouble shooting flow chart to help with this. Good luck.

Can not get readings on unit but there is power an changed fuse


I would check voltage to the transformer and from the transformer. Either 120 or 240 VAC to the transformer and 24 VAC from the transformer. The co ntrol panel runs on the 24 VAC. The transformer should be located in the junction box on the heater where the external power is connected.

AV Receiver buzzing with nothing connected


Hi 
Do you have any warranty on the refurbished unit? I would be first attempting to pursue the supplier that sold it to you to resolve the problem. 
If not.... the buzzing is caused by a loose lamination in the power transformer. Replacing the transformer will solve the drama. there are a few things that you can do to attempt a repair.  These are the measures that I have found to  have worked in the past when repairing this sort of problem. 
  1. Check and tighten all the casing and transformers mounting hardware/screws. Tighten any screws that pass through the transformer also. Try the amp to see what happens. If still buzzing, onto the next step.
  2. To settle the loose lamination, you can try to "Tap" the outside metal parts of the transformer about the laminations from several different directions   with a ball peen hammer (round end). You could also use a center punch to do this to produce a mechanical dent that puts pressure onto the laminations to resolve the problem.BEWARE- DO NOT HIT THE WINDINGS OR PLASTIC PARTS OF THE TRANSFORMER. The amount of force that you use here is up to you. don't go overboard, and watch your aim, don't hit anything but the transformer. It will often take some "denting" to produce the result we are looking for. Try it and see what happens
  3. Put a spacer under one mounting tab of the transformer to "flex" the casings. You may need to try all corners. 
Keep trying different combinations of the above, and hopefully you will be able to resolve it. Sometimes, there is nothing you can do but replace the transformer. I would spend at least 1 hour mucking around with it in the fashion described above, and you should be able to stop the buzzing. , I hope that you get it sorted. I have many times in the past. Good luck, let me know how you get on. Cheers
regards robotek

Transformers and fuses keep blowing


If you are where it's warm and you are using air conditioning, have the technician check the coil in the relay in the outdoor unit. I replaced 2 transformers before I figured out the coil was shorted out and drawing too much current.
