Here are some tips for how to replace a fuse and check a circuit breaker.

  • NEVER install a larger amperage fuse when a fuse keeps blowing. Installing a fuse with a larger amperage will cause the wire to overheat and cause a fire. IF THE FUSE BLOWS OR KEEPS BLOWING, CALL A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN AND HAVE THE CIRCUIT CHECKED!
  • Keep a supply of all your fuse sizes on hand (preferably by the fuse box). This way you will have the correct fuse ready to replace if you have a blown fuse.
  • Immediately throw away all blown fuses. Burnt-out fuses have a way of turning up at the most inopportune times.
