Having problems trouble shooting a 12v track fixture. The fixture shuts off. I replaced the dimmer switch with a common slide type to rule out a switch problem. Have replaced the transformer also. Are these type fixtures equiped with a thermal-overload device? Thanks!!

Does the wattage range xfmr match up to track head loading and line distance. rbj

Yes, the replacement transformer is the exact transformer that worked on the fixture for 5 years.
Was the replaced xfmr heat failed? The xfmr should last indefinitely if the max wiring length was not over spec and track lamping was not overloaded. rbj
