Okay, I think you have two unrelated issues.

First, the short on the output isn't really a short. I think you have a bad PIC (no code) and the outputs are just at ground potential (no signal). New PIC on the way.

Your trafo wiring is also wrong for 220V primaries.

Click the image to open in full size.

You should tie the black and red primaries together (and to nothing else), then connect your AC to the yellow and violet. The way you have it, you are providing 24V to the Kook. The VRegs shoudl handle that okay, but the relay is before the regs, and may have been damaged.

After you fix the wiring, listen for the relay clicking at power-up. If it does not click, I will send you a new one.

Ok Brian,
I have explained badly: I have tie the black and red primaries together (and to nothing else) and I have connected AC to the yellow and violet. Therefore I measured 15.4-0-15.3 on secondary (green--red/brown--blue)to kookaburra.
I listen for the relay and I heard click (light sincerely)at power up
and nothing other....

Brian your mail folder is full. i tried to reply to the "potential problem with kooka" mail saying that mine appears to be one of the non programmed ones. anyways the mail was bounced.
"The e-mail message could not be delivered because the user's mailfolder is full"

i had another question as well

are these the same relays as can be used on kooka?

Yes, those are the relays used on the Kookaburra. Of course, you already knew that, right?

Btw Russ/Brian, Omeron?

The G6H-12(100 version is high reliability) are indeed correct for the kookaburra, but not for the Darwin, or the Joshua Tree. Those take the smaller G6K relay.

Thanks. Fixed.

Incidently, any relay with that footprint will work on the Kook. I have a bunch of Zettlers that I got from surplus that work great. I think about all the big relay makers have one.

Hello,
Problem resolved !!
The new PIC has arrived, I exchanged it, and now all is OK.
The Kookaburra works, and works fine!
Thanks you all.
Alessandro.
