Fuses

A blown fuse can be a symptom of an inherent supply or equipment failure and there are several things you can do to solve the problem.


An electrical fuse works by overheating, then breaking its internal wire before the same fate can destroy more expensive parts of the electrical system.


The fuse is cheap and easy to replace. The other components could cost lots of time and money to replace.
