Trains do not work Bachman HO

After three years in a box we set up the train set last night and it does not work. 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.
