Transformer doesn't shut off completely
I have a new Lionel set with a CW-80 transformer. At first it worked fine. Gradually it began behaving strangely. More throttle was needed to get the train moving, train speed changed abruptly without any throttle change, the reverse function became erratic, and then the engine stopped moving. It's not dead completely, lights and sounds still come on, but erratically. The power to the track never shuts off completely like it used to. Even at zero throttle, lights and sounds still come on.
Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
