SOURCE: I received a new circuit

Its on the back panel of the fireplace...take all screws off back panel and its mounted on the other sure to put you wires back in the PCB as they are on the old on!!!

I install a new limit switch and now something keep burning out the transformer i replace it also and something keep burning it out what the problem could be

All transformer comes with a current limit specification in terms of VA units. For example a 24 v secondary coil with 6 VA specification only can hold a current of of 4 amps for a short period of time. So to prevent that it burned out you only pass an 80% of that current, then it really can hold 3.2 amps continuously.
Other possibles causes for burning the transformer are:
1. Accidentally connecting the primary and secondary reversed, the secondary can not manage the voltage and current of the primary .
2. A coil or device that is connected to the secondary is demanding to much current because is shorted or stuck in a position causing an increase on current.
3. The primary have multiple taps to operate on different voltages and the combination is wrong.
3. Faulty wiring. Some times the insulation of the wires became worm, cracked or melted, with the wires torches the metal a short is produced and the transformer burns. Check the wires carefully.

Hope these tips help,.

Schematic malibu 8100-9120-01

I don't think they post schematic for the transformer
But generally, the primary coil receives 120Volt AC input from household electrical outlet
And the secondary coil produces 12Volt AC output for the low voltage lights.
The 'coil' is a coil of insulated wire wrapped around a metal core. Two coils set side by side create a transformer... when primary is energized, the secondary responds to the magnetic field caused by primary core... resulting in a current that flows on the secondary coil.
Output voltage on secondary coil is determined by the number of wraps and diameter of wire.

Some transformers offer a choice of secondary output... Kichler for example... you can select 12-13-14-15 Volt AC output
This is achieved by the way the secondary coil is wrapped.... for less voltage a wire is tapped at one point on the coil... for more voltage, a wire is tapped at another point on coil. This gives the user several wire choices to connect the lights.

I am trying to replace the transformer in a intertherm electric furnace . I wound up with a jard model 7541c . I know that i need to use the black and white wires for 120 but the old transformer had black...

The important thing to remember is that a transformer has two sides, a primary and secondary side. The primary side should have the 120 volt wires connected to it. It doesn't matter which one of the 120 vac wires goes to what terminal on this side as long as they are both on the primary side. Same with the other two wires, they go to the two wires on the secondary side of the transformer. Hope this helps! Jim

I received a new circuit board for a Paramount DBL-2000-MS electric fireplace, but not sure where to start looking for it.

Its on the back panel of the fireplace...take all screws off back panel and its mounted on the other sure to put you wires back in the PCB as they are on the old on!!!

Audio video control centre. digatal delayed surronds,model no str-d350z was plugged into wrong voltage,part burned out,can you help

You have not specified the make/model. But if you set is having the transformer as the case may be, and you have plugged into the 220volt with the 120 volt settting, then the transformer would have burned off. If so identify the secondary voltage of the DC cicuit and use a 220volt transformer to replace. If you are not able to identify multiple tappings then you must get the primary of the burned tranformer wound for 220volts. If at all this is aSMPS unit then you will need to replace the full unit as the ratings inthe power will be different.Since you have not specified details of voltage and ratings,I am not able to advice more. Hope you decide. Good day
