    24v transformer

    R any 24v transformer with a 240 volt primary and the right VA rating should work. I know this is a stupid question but there is a fuse on the circuit board that protects that transformer did you check it. Also there is a switch on most of the new FAU units so that if the door is off to the fan unit it kills the power to the board. (safety switch)
    Any A/C supply house can find you a transformer that will work.
    Graingers, Johnston, CED, Graybar should be able to cross referance that # as well.

    george,
    there is oddly no inline fuse.
    the unit is only 1-2 years old.

    i tested the transformer itself. it has power going in to it but none coming out

    i was no sure if any would work or if i needed to do something excatly like this one.

    thanks
    for your help guys

    Give me the brand name of the unit.
    A OEM replacement transformer would be nice to find as it will fit and attach exactly the same.
    Tthe fuse should be on the card (circuit board) not in the wiring. Sometime the primary and secondary are fused. But if your checking the actuall output of the Transformer and you have power going in and nothing coming out then you have a bad transformer just like you figured out.

    Don't forget to try a search on ebay, use " hvac transformer" as the search term.
