A transformer is a bunch of wire wrapped around a steel core. The only thing that can go wrong with it is burning up (unless you somehow physically abuse it). The only thing that can make it burn up is to hit the input with too high voltage (like maybe lightning) or try to suck too much current out of it (like maybe a short on the load/circuit side).

If you simply replace the transformer, there is about a 99.999% chance that it will just burn up again.

You need to find the cause of the problem, correct it, then replace the transformer.

Most CD players aren't worth so much effort/expense.
