Marantz SA-1 reliability problem

I ran across a few threads regarding SA-1 update on AudioAsylum. I blew a fuse a week ago on this unit. Since the fuse is concealed inside the power supply, replacing it would have voided the warranty. Living in California, I suspect this has something to do with the fluctuating voltage caused by the energy crisis since one of my friend who has the same unit suffered the same problem one month ago. Do any other SA-1 owners have the same problem?

I read from AudioAsylum that there are TOC reading problems in both SA-1 and SA-14. Do they have the same transport ? Could other owners of these units comment on their reliability please ?
