My HVAC stopped working, no matter what state the thermostat is in there is no fan, no compressor, no heat, etc. Using a multimeter, I found that the output voltage on the transformer was 0V. Unplugging the transformer, I checked the voltage across the two blade connectors. The power side shows 117V. So I went ahead and ordered a replacement transformer.
After installing the new transformer, the HVAC still was not working. I checked the output on the new transformer and it is still 0V. Is the new transformer faulty? What else should I be testing? When I plugged the unit in, there was no smoke or smells that may indicate the transformer being fried.
Using the multimeter, and testing the transformer independant of the circuit, the high side is showing 20 ohms resistance, the low side shows 1.6 ohms. Checking the wires that shouldn't be connected internally shows no continuity.
