I have just bought a door bell from the State however, I am staying in Singapore, where the voltage is 240 in oppose to 110. The vendor told me to simply get a 16-24VAC transformer with 40VA. After installation, the system worked only half a day and it stopped working and there seems to be a burning smell from the transformer. Did the vendor give me the right set of information?
Do I need a step down from 240v to 110v then use another transformer to transform it to the required 40VA?
Please advise as I am stuck and need to install the system asap.
My transformer has the following set of data: Input: AC220V 50 Mhz Output: AC24V 2A
