No. Parallel circuits are not fuses. Fuses can be used to protect parallel circuits.

Fuses don't operate anything,you do. fuses protect electrical circuits from overload

Do fuses protect against high voltages?

Fuses (and circuit breakers) are overcurrent protection devices, which means that they are designed to protect a circuit against either an overload current (too much load) or a short-circuit fault. Fuses do not protect a circuit against a high voltage.

Check the fuses first, if not most likely the switch. Being right next to the window it is bound to have gotten wet and started corroding

How are fuses and circuit breaker alike?

They both (try to) protect the rest of the circuit.

How do fuses or circuit breakers help protect homes?

During an electrical fault, be it a short circuit or circuit overload, fuses and breakers are designed to open at a specific amperage. This opening of either device eliminates a fire hazard before it gets a chance to start. This is how fuses and breakers protect the home.

Can you touch a fuse if your car is off?

You can touch one with it on. Fuses are fuses... they have a plastic outer shell to protect them, and if you touch that, it's not going to hurt anything.

Why are fuses important?

Fuses are needed and used to remove any fault currents from the circuit load in an electrical circuit.

How do fuses and circuit breakers protect against electrocution and household fires?

Fuses and circuit breakers do not protect a person from electrocution. They are in the circuit to protect the feeder conductors from having over current applied to them. The only type of breaker that will protect you from getting a shock is a GFCI.The way that fuses and breakers stop household fires is by opening the fault current on the circuit before the fault temperature can rise high enough to ignite any surrounding combustible materials.

Does anyone have a map of the power distribution box for a 1999 Jeep Cherokee?

I have a 99 wrangler and have had problems with the wires shorting out or corroding under the box. I had to remove the box and replace some wires, the fuses in the box did not blow.

What do fuses and circuit breakers protect circuits from?

They protect the downstream components from spikes in the eletrical system.CommentFuses and circuit breakers do not protect against 'spikes', which are near-instantaneous voltage increases. Fuses and circuit breakers are overcurrent protection devices, which protect appliances against excessive current due to overloads or short circuits. CommentFuses and circuit breakers are used to protect the wire feeder that supplies the load. A load could be connected to a circuit that would cause an increase of amperage above what the wire is rated for. If this condition happens the fuse or circuit breaker will open the load from the supply service.

Why are fuses needed in circuits?

Fuses are there to protect the wiring within the circuit from overheating and catching on fire. The fuse blows and stops the flow of electrons thus preventing the wires from getting so hot they catch fire. The fuse is not there to protect things plugged into the circuit.

What metal is used in electrical fuses?

Fuses have tinned copper wire* in them.The normal current-carrying capacity of a fuse is determined by the thickness of the wire, as is the final rupture current.Because fuses "melt" like solder, some people think they must contain solder wire, but that is not true.Solder has a lower temperature melting point than either lead or tin but it is not used in fuses because it does not have as good a normal current-carrying capacity as tinned copper.* "Tinned copper wire" means the copper wire has been dipped in a bath of molten tin during its manufacture, leaving a thin coating of tin on the surface of the copper. (The tin is used to help protect the copper from corroding in the atmosphere.)
