I've had my 3 TTX1s for a few years, I've gave them some hours but I take care of them. They've been run great until now. One of them malfunctioned during normal use. At first the brake failed, so I shut it down and turned it back on after a pause. At this point the turntable stays on 45RPM, the platter begins spinning as soon as the table is turned on, the brakes don't work, and when you try to switch to 33 rpm it goes into 78 and is stuck there. Like said, this just happened under normal use. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

Fuses blow when there's an overload. Most are caused by a semi-conductor that has shorted. If it was the bridge you can test with an ohm meter. Connection across it's leads will be just like touching the test probes together. That goes for any of the semi-conductor devices.
You are correct. Most are caused by a semi-conductor device. So the rectifier is a possibility. But also check devices with heat sinks on such as voltage regulators. Transistors and diodes and the transformer are easily checked with an Ohm meter. If it's faulty it will be just like you have touched the test probes together!
If they are belt drive then you can get replacement belts from **** Smith Electronics for under 30 dollars if they are direct drive then you could check the fuses if its not either of these you might have to replace the motors which is quite inexpensive anyway
