The transformer is made by Westinghouse (older model) rated at 120 volts and 500 watts. (.5 kilo watts)
the timer seems to work properly the battery is a brand new 9 volt battery (replaced) but the problem is the transformer is getting quite warm without even any valves energized.However the fuse rated at 2 amps is ok so there should be no big current draw to heat up the transformer.
What could be the problem??????
