"Goldwing" strobes

Anyone got any tech info on these old gadgets please?
Mine - which came with an a/c I bought last year - kind of work with a pretty good flash but (a) it's only a single flash, it's meant to be double (b) the frequency is meant to be 3 seconds, it's rather longer and (c) one of the 2 strobes (always the same one) misses out a flash sometimes.
My first suspicions are tired flash tubes or tired capacitors (assuming it's a CD circuit, I haven't opened the box yet to look.)
Any clues appreciated!
Yes I'd like to fit new LED ones but have other priorities for the beer tokens.
