Carpentry & Home Improvement Skills : How to Replace a Blown Fuse


So usually the usually the hardest thing about
replacing a blown fuse is finding the fuse box because very often it is in a very dusty
corner of the basement and they are a bunch of them down there. So this is Robert Markey.
I’ve been in construction for many years and we are going to talk about how to replace
a blown fuse. So once you actually find the fuse box and it is the right one and you make
sure it is the right one, open up and if there is a list of what is what over here of which
room, what things there are, it’s going to give you a clue as to which fuse it is. Sometimes
you can’t read that so you have to look right at the fuse and find the one that is blown
which is sort of purplish and it is sort of obvious that it is blown. There is stuff that
you can see on the inside so when that happens you take the blown fuse out and you take the
replacement fuse and you want to make sure that it is the same ampage, that’s a 20 amp
fuse so your replacement also wants to be a 20 amp fuse. Screw it back in, close it
up and then if you want to go check and make sure that whatever didn’t work before it blew
now works. I’m Robert Markey and we have been talking about how to replace a blown fuse.

  1. I know this really simple, but when your fuse is blown and you are used to a circuit breaker instead of a fuse box this is video is really useful. Thanks Robert Markey, you help me fixed a problem that I could do it myself.

  2. I have a fuse box nearly identical to the one in this video and one blew. Before I attempt to replace it (with the exact same type of fuse, I'm already aware), are there any safety steps I need to take, or is it really as simply as screwing the blown one out and screwing the new one in?
