  • Transformer Maybe?

    Ok guys, I don't have a spare transformer at the moment to swap out but here's the deal.

    Decided to rewire an electrical box on 208 voltage. Before I did any work, everything appeared to be working normally. The only change I made was switch the wiring to A2 style with Terminal 9 being on the 3 amp fuse. After I got everything wired up, I plugged it in and turned the machine on. No ball lights, and won't reset. Check voltages: Terminals 4 & 9 read 5 volts, terminals 6 & 9 read 25 volts. I'm assuming something has gone wrong with the Transformer, or is it possible I wired something up wrong that would cause a voltage drop on terminal 4? I just think it's a little weird that it worked when I took it out, and now it doesn't when I put it back in.

    I'll be picking up another transformer from our home location tomorrow, just wanted to get your guys input before I do that swap (not the easiest thing in the world).

    I've looked over all my wiring and don't see anything out of the ordinary, I've wired up a ton of these boxes now, to the point a wiring schematic is no longer needed, but this is the 1st time a curve ball like this has been thrown at me.

    The low voltage strip wasn't wired anywhere close to begin with. I'm beginning to think maybe someone made it work with that bad lead, but I don't know...

    Disregaurd. I had the Yellow and Orange leads backwards. It's an old transformer with the fabric covered wires, couldn't tell the difference in colors... All is well now..
