Temperature Protection Fuse
If you are repairing Hair Dryer, Iron and other type of set that have heating element in it then chances is high you could see the temperature protection fuse in it. The common specification that you can see from the fuse (printed on its body) are the Volt, Ampere and the Celsius. If you want to locate the parts from any electronics shop make sure you get the exact spec. Assuming if you really can’t locate any of the original spec then there are two important things that you need to know. You need to find the replacement that have lesser ampere and lower Celsius. For the volt, it will always be standard. If your country is using 240 volt then the fuse rating would be 250volt.
Please do not get a replacement fuse that have higher ampere and Celsius because if the set have problem and the fuse did not break, the whole set will catch fire or it will melt the casing! As usual, before replace the fuse, one must always check the connection, wiring, insulation and etc because there must be a reason why the fuse blow in the first place. After replace the fuse, fully test the set before returning to customer.
