Good point Jim. I missed that. In that case likely the fault would be the
bias control on the Bias/QSK board.
Without doing a magnetization test, as the primaries will show a very low DC
resistance, a primary short would be difficult to determine. Of course if
the primary is shorted to the frame, a DC measurement would show this.
Sounds like further and detail trouble shooting might be in order.
