Can I use a 250v fuse instead of 32v?
Question: Will this 250v 4 amp fuse work to replace a 4amp 32v fuse (in an old amplifier/receiver)? Answer: 250V is the max current the fuse can take, it is fine as long as that rating is at or above the current being passed through the fuse, in this case 32V.
Can you replace a 5amp fuse with a 3 amp fuse?
A 3A fuse was used for a reason. If so, yes, you can replace a 3A fuse with a 5A fuse. Never replace a blown fuse with a higher-amp fuse. Always replace the fuse with one with the specified amp rating.
Can I replace a 5amp fuse with a 13 amp?
A 13 will be ok in a 5amp device as long as its ok and your going to get the correct ampage soon. Not a good idea at all, if there is a fault with them you risk a shock or a fire.
How long does a 13 amp fuse last?
BS 1362 Fuse Operation Characteristics In fact a 13A fuse will allow a current of 20A to pass indefinitely without blowing.
Can I use a 15a fuse in a 10a?
You can, it will may immediately blow, but it won’t hurt anything other than the fuse. What you don’t want to do is use a higher amp fuse or something like a jumper wire. That could damage the wiring and start a fire.
Why is it dangerous to use the wrong fuse in an appliance?
The fuse breaks the circuit if a fault in an appliance causes too much current to flow. This protects the wiring and the appliance if something goes wrong. The fuse contains a piece of wire that melts easily. If the current going through the fuse is too great, the wire heats up until it melts and breaks the circuit.
Can I use a 30 amp fuse instead of 20?
A 20 Amp fuse should easily cope with the current demands of the motor but will blow if exceeds it by too much. You then replace this 20A fuse with a 30A. Everything is fine for a while until something breaks and jams the motor. They keep heating and the fuse still doesn’t blow.
