    Hi, one of my three hanging lights has stopped working and I have established that the light is ok but the transformer appears to be duff. The lights are out of stock so I can't replace the whole thing but as the transformer element of it is situated in the loft out of sight, I think that I will just be able to buy a bog standard transformer to replace the IKEA one.
    Can anyone advise please:
    1. A suitible transformer to power 12V - 10 x 5W bulbs?
    2. Thinking to the future, should I power all three lights from the one transformer (30 x 5W)?
    Thanks,
    Oscar

    Fixed already - If only everything was so simple!

    Many thanks for your very quick advice.
