    Shout out when you see the issue! haha..

    The homeowner did not do this, but he is an electrical engineer and he saw it as soon as i did. He was not happy. Was a 2nd transformer installed to supply pwr for a zone system.

    A piece of cardboard looked like the box the Transformer came in. Notice the red wires sticking up, the black ones were at the same height! 2 screws fixed the problem, Not hard.

    Black and White Primary leads are for 120V.
    It looks like the contactor is wired for 240V.....
