looks like we are confused as to your test points,...where are you reading that voltage?
use reply

Any 24 V wire with ground has 115 V reading
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 year ago.
Mt first concern is that the transformer is wrong...
If by chance it is correct...the transformer is bad or hooked up wrong.
With just the line side hooked and not the low...what is voltage direct from the 2 wires...wire to wire not to ground
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
any 24 v wire with com (24 V com) is reading 22,7 V
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 year ago.
Ok so the 115v is gone from the 24v circuit now?
Or was the 22.7 direct from transformer with nothing else hooked up?
