The fault is a failed winding on the pulsing relay, but dont worry we have plenty of spare coils to keep it working. These particular ones have to work quite hard, electrically speaking, they have three separate coils on the one core. One acts as a transformer to inject dial tone back down the line.
Not something to repair in a cold locking room but easy enough on a well lit bench with a cup of coffee to hand!
