ZW problem
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, December 10, 2002 11:08 PM
I have a ZW transformer that just gave up on me. The red "overload lamp illuminated when any of the levers are moved above stop. Any input on this would be appreciated. Family gathering on Saturday may result in sad faces if I don't get this working.

Thanks

Sounds like the circuit breaker may have went bad. Had this happen to a Z type transformer but it would run a train for only a short time and then trip.

Bob,
Thanks for the reply. Turns out that it is the cicuit breaker.The contact points are no longer touching. I jumped it and I now have output. Thankfully my local train supply has one so I will be up and running this weekend! Have a great holiday.
