There can be several reasons for transformers to fail.

1: when an original transformer fails it should be replaced with an exact or equal one.

2: power surges. Even an unoticed power surge ( lightning storm) home generators, etc, can damage transformers.

Surge protectors can be used to prevent this.

3: improper voltage feeding transformer.

Check power source of feed to transformer. Make sure it is wired correctly.

If not sure have an electrician do this.

Note: transformers can be slightly warm but never hot.

i will be glad to answer any questions you may have.

Be sure to check the numbers on any replacement transformer for compatibility.
