Help - can't find the correct low voltage lighting transformer


We have lights installed under our kitchen cabinets and the low voltage transformer in one of them is going bad. It's a 12.8V Model DR16S (not even sure who the manufacturer is though), but I can't seem to find it anywhere? Who sells these components?

Thanks - Best regards,
Sherm

partsexpress.com, or even Radio Shack may be able to order through their parts system. Also check with the manufacturer of the lights.

Your under cabinet lighting is manufactured by Kichler Lighting. You could probably call their tech support and order a new transformer.(www.kichler.com)

Yep, exactly! I may have a problem though. After posting this thread, I found this ... http://forum.doityourself.com/lighti...on-lights.html

I turned it off that night when I went to bed.

Next day, flip the switch and nothing. Press on the black transformer in the light housing and it comes on. So....it's definately the transformer.

I'm in the process of finding just the transformer as there is no need to replace the whole fixture.

Light: K-10566-WH
Transformer: DR16S

If I can find an exact replacement it's a piece of cake to swap out. The transformer is about half the size of a deck of cards and is held in place by double sided tape. A couple of wire nuts and it's done.

Now to shop.
And, there was no solution posted. I've already done a pretty good amount of searching ... so, I may actually have to buy another light!?
