To try everything separately was my first thought. The safelight turns on when plugged into the wall, but not the timer (red status light does not turn on, won't turn on safelight etc), and the enlarger won't work when plugged into the wall either. Seemed like a strange coincidence for both the enlarger bulb and timer fuse to go at once, though! But that must be what happened.

I can hear filaments rattling inside both the enlarger bulb and timer fuse, so they must both be gone...
If the timer must be replaced (I really hope this isn't the case) then I think I'll have no choice but to buy an old dial timer like a Gralab...the digital ones cost much more than I can afford at the moment. The f-stop timer looks fantastic, though. One day
