Every time I've suspected that I may have a bad transformer, it's turned out to be something else. Usually a bad fuse holder.

That's why I check fuses through the fuse holder. I put one side of a continuity meter on one fuse solder lug and the other on the opposite solder lug with the fuse in the holder. If I get solid continuity, I know that not only is the fuse good but so is the holder.

I find an ohm meter to be much more useful than a volt meter. I'd check for any possible continuity (open circuit) issues before I would begin checking voltages. Because, the former is much more likely than the latter.

Quoted from Peruman:

Now that I know 25V is available I want to make sure all the switches are in the correct state before powering up.
When I look at the control bar and manually work the armatures, not much is happening with the switches on them.
If anyone owns a working Soccer, can you send me a photo of how the control bars are setup?[quoted image]


The state of the switches with the game off isn't really important. When you start a game and the arm resets the bank, all the relays will lock into the same state regardless of what position they started at. If you manually pressed the bar down you've already locked all the relays into the same position.

I would just plug it in and try to start a game and go from there.
