Red face Forte Model 1 wont turn on!

Forte Model 1 suddenly stopped working. Doesn't turn on, the red indicator does not light up.

What the things to check up??

Thanks.

I checked briefly in the morning - they looks not burned. Will take them off when back home and check precisely.
Is Model 1 is repairable nowadays?

Main fuse seems OK but all 4 fuses inside look like burned down/melted.
What's their nominal for repairs?
Have not a clue how to release them... They sit too tight to lift them up..

Click the image to open in full size.

Got one out, glass damaged. Very strange wire. Others are white metal, curvy.
