I had a small TC which I used for demo. It was easily to assemble and
disassemble. On one occasion it behaved exactly as you described. I tried
raising and lowering the terminal, various break points, etc. to little
avail. Then I discovered the ground connection to the bottom of the
secondary was not connected. Correcting this fixed the problem.
