I have 6 downlights in my kitchen . 3 have gone in the last couple of months .
I have investigated and found disturbing burned charred wiring in the wiring box of each
Does this just happen due to the transformer going ?or is there a possible other cause.
I am worried this could have caused a fire !
I have checked the 3 working units and there is very slight discolouration showing in the joint boxes but minimal.

That sort of burning/charring is typical of a badly made connection, when replacing make sure you cut the cores back to sound wiring and check that the terminals are tight.
