I think that its now worth it.
Time you spend rewinding it will probably buy you a new one, especially it itsa small one.

The thermal fuses have opened.

Question is ..... why? I know, do you?

Give Denon a call and price those transformers. Do you have the part number printed on the outside? Could be 233 .... and so on.

Hi,
Is it worth repairing?

The Orientals started the trend of throwing things away after six months by releasing the new super dooper version.

Hi,
if a thermal breaker is fitted it will more likely be under the secondary winding.
If the windings are on separate spools, it could be under the primary insulation or buried in the primary winding.

These thermal fuses are not intended to be easily repairable/replaceable due to the damage to insulation that is likely at the high temperature that causes the thermal to eventually trip.
Another case of throw it away ideology.

Just get a new one. You will damage some of the laminations trying to get them apart, if you manage at all. The whole thing is soaked in varnish so must be solvent dipped to clean it off you you will simply be fighting all the way and ruin it.

And if the secondary has been wound over the primary it's lot of work, you'll probably need a helper if you don't have a winding machine as well.

WOW. much more complicated than I thought. Wrote an e-mail to denon to have the cost for two brand new transformer. Will depend on the price, else will salvage the 3 amps. One transformer still good so I have one power amp at 120w. and two board which I could find an old transformer with approx. 45v 0 45v to go with the two remaining boards. As always, thanks for your help.
