The transformer gets slightly warm when plugged in but when moved into the forward or revesre postion the trains do not move or make any noise. Where shoud l I begin in trying diagnos and fix the problem? We don't even remember the configuration of how the transformer is to be plugged into the tracks.

SOURCE: Need Z4000 transformer (trains) manual

We were able to locate a Z4000 transformer manual. Found out our problem was a connection problem with the track and not a problem with the transformer. Thanks anyway.

Check the engine motor and second car motor with a digital multimeter for continuity. Make sure the track is connected properly. Also probe the transformer and see if it is sending out power to the track

Driver Wheels are not aligned properly. Will not run in reverse without de-railing.


Best best is to send it back to the parts & service department, they will either repair it or replace it. It should have a lifetime warrantyif you are the original owne If not under warranty, I believe the charge is $35.00 for repair/replacement.But check with parts & service.

Tyco trains are set up have power but trains will not move


Check the engine and transformer by taking the two wires from the transformer and, while holding the engine upside down put on wire against one side wheels and the other wire on the other sides wheels...that will tell you if the engine is at fault.

ENGINE DOES NOT MOVE VERY WELL AND IS LOUD


Sounds like the wheels may be dirty on the one . Have you tried cleaning them? The noisey one may need a little grease on the gears. The one that does not move but lights up, not sure. Have you tried to take the body off and see if a wire is disconnected?
Try going on line and look for a group on Yahoo Groups for N-scale. They will probably be more helpful and you will get more information about N scale trains. Good luck!
