As loon as the power switch is not also a circuit breaker, just change the switch. If it is also a circuit breaker then there probably is some problem with the amp.

Adam a7x same box with defferent fuse,why?

do you mean you got a new one and it just has a different fuse? if so you may have already got a newer model or older model where the pc board inside has differnt "Revisions". just meaning the designers changed a thing here or there such as rev. a or rev. b. shouldn't be a big deal but it does state you do not have identical speakers hence they may also filter sound differently.

Transformers RARELY fail. It is likely that either one side of the amplifier has shorted or there is a failure in the rectifier/filter circuit of the power supply. Take it for repair unless you are adept at electronic repair. Do NOT continue to replace the fuse as you MAY cause futher damage. Use a 25 or 40 watt lamp in series with your power cord to limit current while troubleshooting.

Unplug the audio cable to it... IF hum persists, possibly a filter capacitor in the power supply has failed.. If it is quiet with no audio connected, look for bad cable or improper grounding such as running these from different receptacles in your facility.

When I press the on button the red light fades and shuts down completely. sometimes it can be turned on but it won't stay that way much longer and it starts flipping the drive channel and the more drive...

This is likely a failure of the power switch. It momentarily contacts, charges the power supply caps and then breaks the contact. This is not that uncommon as these switches are not well made and often not designed to handle the inrush surge current.

Did you just use adapters or actual step-down transformers?
A lot of equipment today is 110/220 auto-switching, but if you get something built for 110V (120V, 100V, markings may vary) only, then you need more than an adapter, you need a transformer!
