While working as a plumber in Marin Ca. a gentleman gave me a JBL Paragon, two ML-2 mono blocks and ML Preamp and Crossover. The speaker actually works and is flawless.One of the mono blocks trips when turned on. How do I go about fixing this or getting it fixed? Is it worth it?

... somebody gave you a Paragon ?
My ! What a gift !

The ML-2 are worth fixing, even for their resale value, especially in Japan.

JBL Paragon is worth somewhere North of of $25,000 USD to the right buyer in Japan, although just right now we've a few other things on our minds. Eventually normal life, and audio, will return...
You might ask JBL in Northridge if they know of someone reliable who could fix it.

You lucky, lucky, lucky git. I have no way to match your good fortune but I did once serve a customer who left a 'tip' of a Linn Troika cartridge. (Big sale, had to travel down from London to 'evaluate' his Bristol home).

I was using a mid-range JVC turntable at the time so 'sold it back' to my cheap-ass employer for about a third of its real value.

Many druken nights out with mates followed...
