Hey, you're in the home improvement zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Electrical Category: Fuses

Problem: 

Fuse is blown or otherwise bad and in need of replacement.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • Fuse puller (that is nonconductive)

Solution:

 

So, you have determined that either your plug fuse or cartridge fuse is blown and otherwise bad; if you need help determining the condition of your fuse, see the section on how to identify a blown fuse or otherwise bad fuse.  You'll need to replace the blown/bad fuse.

Caution: When dealing with any device that requires electrical power, make sure you take precautions before you work on it, including disconnecting the power; in this light, before disconnecting any fuse, make sure you turn off the main power, and have a flashlight in your hands to carefully navigate around.

Removing and Replacing a Plug Fuse

Removing a blown plug fuse is easy to do.  Unscrew a plug fuse counterclockwise from the fuse box (with one hand to do the actual unscrewing and the other hand on yourself for the time being to avoid a ground contact as a precaution).  Once unscrewed, throw this unscrewed, blown plug fuse into the trash.  Screw in this now available socket of the fuse box a replacement plug fuse of the same amperage rating as that of the old one, screwing it in clockwise.

Removing and Replacing a Cartridge Fuse

Removing a blown cartridge fuse is also easy to do.  For safety purposes, use a fuse puller that is nonconductive to pull out the cartridge fuse from the spring clips of the fuse box. Once removed, throw this blown cartridge fuse into the trash.  In its place, install a replacement cartridge fuse of the same amperage rating as that of the old one by engaging this replacement cartridge fuse with the spring clips of the fuse box, making sure the replacement cartridge fuse is secured to the spring clips.

These are generally the ways of replacing a plug fuse and cartridge fuse.
