Need to know which 20 Amp fuse is blowing.
This is the starter fuse I am talking about. It doesn't blow every time. It might go weeks before it blows again.
A current greater than 5 amps; check for short circuits.
Short in the speed control switch or the wiring.
What Causes Any Fuse to "Blow?"The cause is what fuses were invented and are used for:to detect and protect against SHORT CIRCUIT conditions, and /or CIRCUIT OVERLOAD conditions.
It will draw over 18 amps and will blow a 15 amp fuse.
a massive overload of that particular circuit... cheers Aussie charlie..........
Probably a short to ground.
Yes, as long as it doesn't blow. You can always go lower with a fuse, but not higher.
The starter is failing.
You cannot because a five amp fuse would blow because the original fuse was seven point five. and a ten amp fuse would not blow quick enough to save or even be safe to use it in whatever you are using it for.
If you do that the likelihood is that you will blow the 3A fuse quickly. There is a reason why the current fuse is what it is, because it is expecting currents around 80% of 13 A or around 10 A.
A fuse is a safety device which is designed to blow (fuse) if a larger current than it is rated for passes through it. So a 10 amp fuse can pass anything up to 10 amps.
No. You will blow the fuse or trip the breaker at the main panel.
The 13 amp fuse with blow at the lower rate to the 15 amp fuse. And At 15 amp the motor is normally more powerful - check the wattage used in both
Check fuse #34 in the passenger compartment fuse panel. It is a 20 amp fuse. It is YELLOW.
Only if you want to blow up the microwave. That will let 20 amps go through before the fuse blows when the manufacture is telling you 18 amps max. <<>> Yes, you can use the 20 amp fuse. At 250 volts 2 amps is no problem and you are not going to blow up the microwave. On a fault current the 20 amp fuse will trip just as fast as an 18 amp fuse.
If the fuse thsat has blown is a 3 amp, you should only replace it with a 3 amp fuse, which is good for appliances up to 700 watts (In the UK, on 240 volts). Do not replace a 3 amp fuse with a 13 amp fuse, it gives much less protection. If you replace a 13 amp fuse with a 3 amp fuse, the 3 amp will likely blow, since the 13 amp fuse should be protecting a powerful appliance such as a heater, between 2000 watts and 3000 watts.
Surely you have had too much eggnog. A fuse is designed to blow if the rated current is exceeded. So the answer is definitely no. If there were such a thing as a million amp fuse you would need a giant crane to even lift it.
If the circuit is rated for 20 Amps you can use a smaller fuse as long as it doesn't blow when the circuit is loaded.
not smart to do it cant carry the load of the circuit it will blow. in emergency maybe but never go with a higher rating
something on that circuit is shorted, the short needs to be repaired.
Yes you can. It will provide better protection because it will blow quicker than a 20 amp if there is a fault in the circuit.Not advisable. If the normal current is little more than 15 amps, then the fuse will blow. If the actual current is less than 15 amps, then it would work.
A short somewhere could do it.
Yes I do not see why not as long as the in line fuse does not exceed the power the amp is pulling. You want the fuse to blow instead of the amp so you need a fuse that can only handle 1600 watts or the equivalent to....
