They are usually very simple inside, so open it up and make a few tests.  If
the transformer is gone, it's probably not worth replacing.  But if it's
just a diode, or circuit breaker, they are fairly easy and cheap to replace.

I've been using an old Schumacher 2/10/50 model for many years now that was
given to me in "quit working" condition.  All it needed were some diodes,
which I salvaged from a scrap alternator.
