Could not locate heatsink, component in question is located over a small "v" slot about 1/2 inch long in front of transformer, hope this helps to locate said component.

There is a small glass fuse there as well. These units have aswitch mode power supply and the transistor that is attached to the heatsink sometimes gets shorted. This is the most likely problem. If you feel comfortable working on these and can solder, let me know and I'll provide more detailed information.
