Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my light transformer is working?

Test the transformer's output voltage with the multimeter. Compare the reading to the stated output voltage. If the output voltage has a correct reading, the transformer works properly. If the input voltage has a correct reading, but the output voltage has a high or low reading, the secondary windings have a fault.

How do you know if a light transformer is bad?

Look for a reading of somewhere between one and about 10 ohms. If any winding reads higher than 10 ohms you have probably found a bad transformer. Unless you didn't get a good connection to the coil leads with your test leads. Always check at least 3 times before you draw a conclusion.

How to test a low voltage lighting transformer?

If the transformer is in a high location, position the ladder securely before climbing it to remove the cover. If you have retained the manual that relates to the transformer, it will be useful to check it to determine what to expect. You will find that the low voltage lighting transformer comprises two test wires.
