Problem with the internal electrical transformer

I´ve got a split and the internal electrical transformer burned out, so I need to replace it. But I need info about type, resistance and capacity of it, for the 18,000 btu air split model.
Thank you.

P.S.: I am in Brasil, so if you have any distributor in here I´d like to know about.

How do I fix an ikea lamp with a burned out transformer.

go to an electrical whole sale business and see if there are transformers available that meet the specifications on the side of the original units and if so then consider getting them and have an accredited electrician change the plugs / sockets for transformers to burn out I suspect that the input voltage into the transformer is not as specified on the trans former and any transformers that you get will have to have the same primary voltage as wht is available at you place

Find out the electronic circuit voltage

I am an electrical engineer and I do not fully understand your question. If the unit is designed to operate on 50/60 Hz, it cannot be damaged by operating it at either of those line frequencies. Mnay products today will operate at either line frequency.However, if you used an adjustable voltage power transformer (a.k.a. "Variac"), you may have "under-voltaged" or "over-voltaged" the device. If there is a circuit breaker, try resetting it. Otherwise, there may be a circuit board-mounted fuse internally that is now electrically "open." That can be tested with an Ohmmeter for continuity. (Finding a replacement may prove difficult.)

Operating a line-powered device above or below its input limitations can permanently damage internal power supply functions and, perhaps, other circuitry as well.

Solid state components can fail "open" or "shorted." If they fail "open" they will not draw appreciable current to "burn" them in any obvious way.

Wall oven bake element split

Was there a burning smell before at the time when it heated up slowly?A burning smell suggests there was a (possibly continuous) spark at the splitted place.If it was split earlier then the slower warming up was possibly due to a continuous spark, because then there won't be much energy left for heating.It's like an added resistance.So it could've been there for a while already.
The element just needs to connect again where it splitted and should stay there, then it should work again.

No voltage from 24 volt transformer power in no power out .

The transformer is burnt out... you will need to replace it... this is common and they burn out easily if a low voltage wire it shorted even for a split second, or if there is a brown out...

They best way to prevent this is by installing a 5 amp fuse ahead of the transformer in the high voltage line so that it blows before the transformer goes...

Marantz amplifier pm-34

the transformer has an internal thermal fuse. If you study the terminations coming out from the internals of the transformer you may notice either a pair of tinned thicker wires or insulated. This may be open circuit. I have often bypassed this internal fuse(they are notoriously common failures) to get a transformer going. You can get a replacement one from a parts supplier if you felt the need. I would just bypass it anyway.:)This may make the amp somewhat "illegal" in the US. We use the MEN (multiple earth neutral) mains power distribution in Australia and the transformer(if melting) would short out to earth and blow the mains primary fuse, the internal thermal is a US requirement.

Vibrating Noise and Electrical Smell

The noise and smell usually come from a bad transformer. If the magnetron has burned out usually the transformer will need to be replaced as well. The transformer is right behind the grille on the right hand side.
