Default Help with Repair to Kenwood FL180A Wow and Flutter Meter

Currently blowing mains chassis fuse on the primary side of transformer! Suspecting transformer itself if spare part or equivalent to restore operation to this piece of equipment.

Many Thanks

Hi Hector, try a simple test of disconnecting secondary side of mains transformer an see if fuses still blow. If not the transformer may be OK and the problem lies within the circuitry.
If they still blow then the problem is likely within the transformer, physically examine it for signs of damage or overheating.
No great problem if it is the transformer as they can be rewound
