I'm just short of pulling out what little hair I have over this. I've been searching on the internet and on this site for any clue as to why I can't get this stinking thing to work. I have a door chime transformer that has three voltage options (8v10A, 16v10A and 24v20A) like this
. When you combine the 8V and 16V you should get 24V which is the case when I touch my black and red cable on my multi-meter directly to the transformer with power applied. As soon and I combine those two onto what I have set up as my 24V terminal strip, I get a reading of zero and the transformer starts to heat up. How am I supposed to get 24V to my Auber controls and to my switches like this?
Here are a couple pics of my wiring:

The color of the wiring is ambiguous.
Two of the leads coming from that strip go one each to my Aubers and the other two go to a three position switch. That way I can switch on my honeywell furnace valves when I need to bypass the PID's. My system should end up being almost identical to jlandin's and this
All of that to say...can anyone help with the transformer wiring situation? Why am I getting zero volts when combining those two wires? Thanks for any help.
