I have framed a rectifier circuit and I got an output greater than the input........ how it came?


I framed a bridge rectifier using ordinary PN junction diode and gave an input of 12V AC. I also added a capacitor 2200uF for filtering. Initially I was getting a proper output of 12V DC. But suddenly I started getting 16V at the output, input remained unaltered. Can any one help me to troubleshoot.......
