I bought a 2000 watt transformer a little bit ago and plugged it into my wall. (I live in Germany and we use 220 outlets instead of the 110/120 outlets in the states). Anyway. I hooked up a 750watt appliance into the transformer and it wouldnt work. I tried a different outlet and still nothing. So I try it in the living room on my laptop, the transformer isnt giving out any power.

Now every outlet in my living room and kitchen arent working. I've tried messing with the power source and it's not working. Anyone know something that'll get my power back on in my living room and kitchen?

 Sorry no clue either. Just wanted to share that if you plug America clear Christmas lights in to transformer that they glow black. Our first Christmas in Germany was so much fun, my hubby was stationed their 10 years ago.
