I bought this Phillips 212 new from HI Fi Buys in 1972. One day it would not turn on so I started looking around on Ebay for parts. Found a place selling on off switches for $12.00 so I ordered one. Replaced the on off switch and noticed when I turn it on it kicks the breaker on my plug in strip. Well, I wonder what is next. Probably the motor. I have a parts 212 I saw one day for $25. Anybody ever messed around with one of these?

I just repaired an 877 last night, so Philips is still fresh in my mind, LOL!
You may have hooked the switch up so it shorts the line
The motors in those, even if shorted, couldn't do more than pop TS440, a BC338 (use a 2N2222 if it is popped).
Transformers rarely short, but test the primary with an ohm meter (snip & strip the wires to rule out primary side bollox). Should be >2 ohms for that little guy and likely between 4 and 5.
After that's done and before re-attaching the transformer leads, put the ohm meter to the plug and turn it on. Resistance drop to zero? Yep, switch in wrong or a bum switch got sent.
As for the rest of the table, recap the 'lytics. Most TT's I do come alive after that
