Hi. We have identitical halogen light fittings in the Living room and dining room, they take the little tiny halogen bulbs and were fitted about 12 m ago. We got them from Asda.

After about 3 months the LR fitting didn't work and we identified the transformer had gone so got it replaced.

Now, within days of each other both fittings have stopped working, it doesn't look like the transformer this time (last time it was browned). Are these fittings like Xmas tree lights and if one bulb goes then none of them work? Incidentally, after the LR one stopped working the switch was left 'on' and when I turned on the oven it fused the switch.

Thanks for any help,

K

I doubt they'll be wired in series however stranger things have happened!
You can't really tell by looking at a transformer if it is shot - you'll need to test it.
