    You want the same secondary output voltage(s) and capacity (voltamp rating) as the original 230v.

    Post a picture of its specs.

    Did you check to see that on the off chance the primary may be dual winding, 120/240 ?

    ...so, Goldilocks installed the first transformer and said "this one is too big!" And then she installed a second transformer....

    Antek makes and sells a nice line of Toroidal, you need to know the secondaries required and the approx Va size.

    Hello,

    As others said, post some pictures of the primairy and secondairy side.
    If there are extra connections on the primairy side, it could be the transformer connections can be changed for 120 V.
