Ring doorbell wired blowing transformers

My latest Ring doorbell wired is blowing transformers immediately upon installation. After 2 blown transformers I dismounted the Ring and took it to my workbench to ensure no issues with the wiring to the transformer etc… Upon connecting to another transformer on my workbench it blew this one as well. All wiring, voltage, amps are withing specs. Very frustrating as never had this issue on prior generations of Ring doorbells and previous installations. This doorbell is the wired 2021 release.

I’m getting the same problem with Ring doorbell 3 - installed with a transformer but quickly stopped registering as ‘wired’. Bought another transformer but didn’t seem to work so returned it. Got a third transformer - tested it before installing and it showed 22v fine. Just connected it to the RING 3 doorbell and it no longer works - removed the transformer and tested at another electrical socket - dead when it worked perfectly 5 minutes ago - so definitely blown. Did you ever get a resolution ?
