Transformer Question

I replaced a transformer on my furnace and when connected I got an orange glow at a 12 pin connector point on a White Rodgers 50A50 241 control panel. The transformer was a dayton 120v 24v 40VA transformer I burnt out the board. I got a new transformer and board. Now that I finished getting my furnace up and running, I tested the transformer I bought and there is 120v coming from the input and the output side. I would have thought that the transformer would have been dead.

I am wondering whether I have any claim with Dayton or Grainger where I bought it. I was expecting the transformer to be dead rather than having any output let alone 120v.

I have never seen a 24vac transformer put out 120vac.

If it, in fact, is new and putting out 120vac then you should have some recourse with Grainger.
Make sure you double check that transformer because if you bring it back to them.... they will.

Please let us know how you make out.

Wow interesting. That will make you double check some voltages before you hook anything up. I am sure that is an anomaly but I will keep that in mind for the future.
