Default Battery Charger Smoking

When I plug up my portable battery charger the transformer heats up quickly and smokes.

What will cause this and how can I repair it?

Sounds like a short somewhere.
Do you have the schematics?
Do you have pictures to post?

You don't have to know everything, if you know where to find it.
When you do ask questions, you may look stupid.
When you do NOT ask questions, you will STAY stupid.

It would be nice to have the Timezone ( GMT +/- x ) in the location field in the profile.
