the yoke coil is very critical component of tv. it matches with the picture tube & the circuit. one can not replace with another kind of yoke. these yoke coils are very rare to get. i m so sad to say if it is not available you have to replace the whole tv.
Absolutely not worth repair. You have described a classic symptom of Zenith picture tube failure, and about 99% of the time the main board in the TV is ruined as well. You've gotten good life from the set (manufacturers figure tube life is around 7 years these days), so it's time to replace it.
Sounds like the red picture tube could be shorting internally which would cause the "all red" condition. In which case you'd have to replace the red tube. Are there horizontal (slightly slanted) lines through the picture as well when this is happening and a very very bright screen? If so it's most likely the tube.
My first inclination would be to check the picture tube, especially if the set is over 7 years old. If it is not that, then anything from bad solder connections to capacitors or a defective IC could be the cause. If it's over 10 years old, replace it. No use flogging a dead horse.
It certainly sounds like a drive problem in the set. It could be a bad connection on the CRT socket, a componet on the CRT driver board, a bad drive transistor, a connection between the CRT driver board and the RGB /video jungle IC, or the RGB/video jungle IC itself. If you know how to solder and or have some sort of solid state repair experience, you should be able to find this problem by simply probing around with a wooden or plastic tool tilll the problem arises. If you have no experience, there is no easy quick fix. You should find a local repair person to assist you with this repair. good luck

Sounds like you have a vertical failure, and is causing the power supply to shut down. A repair person can probably repair this main board in this set but it will cost more in time and labor to repair. So the right thing to do is replace the entire module. This Zenith was designed to replace the boards completely to shorten down time as well as labor. The board this set needs is a 9-02107 module, and is avail from http://www.partstore.com for 52.44 + shipping. I dont think you should attemp to do this repair by yourself if you have no electronics training or tv training. This is just so you know what you need and get an idea on what this will cost you to repair. Good Luck
