Contactor Replacement problem


New transformer and you should be good to go now. The wires, the way they were in the picture, were a direct short. That's why the transformer burnt out.

Now that I look at it again. And for longer. Your right, the terminals are on both side of it.

Rick. Get a transformer with a resetable breaker.
