Hello all, my postwar lionel ZW R model red light will not go out. It stays on all the time. How do I fix this? I am only running one train off the U and D posts. I have 3 other transformers on the layout: two Zs and a KW. I took off the ZW and plugged it into another wall outlet and separate test track. Red light is still on. Is my circuit breaker done for or broken? I have my KW running my track voltage now. I have all transformers in phase. All the grounds tied together amongst the transformers. But, still the ZW red light will not go out. Stays lit up all the time. What can I do to fix this?

Have the circuit breaker replaced. Should be done by a knowledgeable repair person
What does the circuit breaker look like? What type do I need? I am good with my hands. I have a soldering gun and tools to do it. Just need some instructions on how to replace the circuit breaker.

In case someone doesn't respond on this, you can search threads on here about replacing the main circuit breaker and even alternate, perhaps better, choices (the old circuit breakers were slow, not necessarily great). The other thing is to look on you tube, there are a lot of videos on there about repairing ZW's I have come across.
