Transformer replacement Mine stopped working, traced it to a faulty transformer. Got the replacement but, oops, can't remember where the wires go!? I know where the 110 goes but there are 4 other wires - an orange and white pair (I presume that is the 12V pair, correct?) and a pair of light blue. Where do these two go? one to each side of the transformer? which pole? Thanks in advance

GE parts folks says that the wiring diagram is either taped inside the back control panel, or someplace else inconvenient. Try that first, and then perhaps you'll find the information. Nada on the net.

transformer or fuse would not cause a problem. seems like cheap asian electronics are the problem. its a control panel issue

If the plug is not keyed and you cant tell from the wires, it probably doesn't make a difference. You are telling me it is 21 VAC ... AC dont care - and you dont appear to have a common ground situation.

I have a blodgett zephaire gl oven. unit kept buring up 24v transformer, was old bad centrifical switch in motor. I replaced motor with brand new one, unit still buring up 24v transformer.....why ?

A short somewhere causing it to overamp. Put a 3amp inline fuse on the secondary side (24v side) on the hot wire. This will save the transformer and blow the fuse not the transformer. The centrifugal switch prolly wasn't bad. So I would trace the wire coming off transformer and look for bare wire or loose wires. Anything that would cause a short

Reddy heater pro 110

check that power is getting to the transformer, if so test the transformer for continuity. if it is good look for a short in the high voltage(spark plug) wire, and that one side of the secondary is connected firmly to the chassis of the heater. if no power to the transformer then trace the wiring to find the defect.

Thermostat is new but no 24 vac at contactor

If you are handy with meters and electrical work try this.
Somewhere there is a small transformer that supplies the 24volts.
If you trace the wires from the contactor coil back to the big circuit board then the transformer is probably on that board. Make sure you are tracing the COIL wires. If the wires go to a small transformer mounted separately then your in luck. That transformer steps down the voltage to 24 volts used as a "control" voltage for the unit. If you have 24vac output at the transformer, and no 24vac at the contactor then a control or thermostat circuit is open.

How easy is it to replace an intermatic ML300RTW malibu tranformer?

Question is not 100% clear.
Add a comment any time, and that sends email, and I will respond with more information if needed.

1) Are you trying to repair a transformer?
I do not know of any repair for the transformer, or available parts sold to repair transformer, although the product does have a warranty, and Intermatic might have a repair protocol for the transformer.

2) Are you replacing existing transformer with a new transformer?
The transformer plugs directly into outdoor outlet, and wires are connected to A and B terminals.

My door chime (Honeywell) is not working anymore after a recent power outage. How do I get it to work?

The transformer may have been fried. test this with a line testing kit like you would use to trace a line in a car. If the power is not going threw the transformer then you can just replace it of by a new door bell. they are fairly in expensive.

Not working keeps blowing transformer

If the transformer is blowing then you have the wires shorted somewhere. Trace down the thermostat wire and correct the short. To keep from ruining a transformer install an inline fuse on the low voltage side. How it works: transformer 101

replace the button with a new one just remember which wire goes to which terminal. you will need a soldering iron and electronic solder to do this trick , also make sure you un plug the transformer. by any chance you got any n-scale trains you want to get rid of . If you do send me the info @ I'am a disabled veteran with little funds.

I am replacing the flyback transformer

You should post here pictures of old transformer and point out what wire you want to remove, then I can give you an idea what to do as flyback transformer is not in front of me.

Doesnt do anything

It's the transformer. Match the new one as close as possible to the old if not exact.

Unit won't power up completely

The clicks you hear are the relay that completes the circuit for 110V AC to the main power transformer. Mine had the same problem and here's how I've gotten it to work. A lightning strike near our house caused it to fail, and I traced it to the power transformer relay activation circuit. The tuner and amp were fine. I found a bad transistor in the relay circuit, but didn't have a replacement on hand, so I soldered a jumper wire across the relay switch connections on the power transformer circuit board. This connects the 110V AC directly to the power transformer. DC Power to the amp and tuner circuits will still be controlled by the power switch, but the transformer will be supplying all the AC voltages to the main board. If there is a real problem with the circuits that load the transformer or the transformer itself, then the fuse will blow. If the fuse doesn't blow then I suspect the problem is just in the power sequencing circuit itself, that is not needed for operation other than to make the unit "Energy Star Compliant". A lot of electronic items have a transformer that is not switched, and only fused, so that the supplies are available at all times.
