GBC Laminator Issue

    I have a GBC 1064WFC laminator and for some reason it's blowing the main fuze in the plug socket all the time.

    It had stayed on for quite some time as I guess I forgot to shut it off for awhile and it sat there powered up for a few weeks.

    Does anybody have any experience fixing these things? It would have to be one of three items that use power. The motor, the transformer or the main board.

    Would sitting on (but unused) for so long blow the transformer? It's like like it has any moving parts.

    start disconnecting things and see if it blows or not, eventually you'll find the problem.

    Could also be the fuse?
