Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. What you described sounds like a bad connection making and breaking under load. It could be in the receptacle the transformer is plugged into. With a 2 wite voltage tester you could check that outlet when the unit stops working. If not the outlet, check the low voltage terminations. Let me know how it goes.
