What is the origin of that transformer you are testing with ?

I have seen some pretty extreme cases where an American sourced transformer originally designed for 220v 60Hz, often located inside a piece of equipment, has been used at 240v 50Hz and has subsequently failed due to saturation causing the primary to overheat and eventually burn out.
