Default Carver PM-300 needs repaired

My good ol' Carver PM-300 finally died after 20yrs! I opened it up to see what was wrong with it and it looks like the internal power supply is shorted out. When I jiggle it around it arks and then blows the fuse. I called the Sunfire Corp. in Washington and they no longer service Carver amps...they referred me to a guy in Oregon who will fix it for a flat rate of $299.00. This seems excessive in price to me and was wondering if anyone on here could fix it for less? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Looks like Bob and Rita have a new web address. The rates have increased of course. Check here: Rates - Carver Service. I just emailed them looking for specs on some fan motors or replacements.
