Electrical Part (Safety)


FUSES



New appliances have to be supplied with a plug that is fused in accordance with manufacturers' instructions.

Always follow manufacturers' recommendations for fuses, or seek expert advice.

If a fuse blows for no obvious reason or an appliance is not working properly, switch off the appliance at the socket and unplug it before trying to find out why. If the fault can't be found or you are uncertain how to find the fault, get expert advice.

The same principles apply to fuse boxes or circuit breakers-always switch off at the mains before you investigate and remember to replace the cover before switcing back on. If you need to change a main fuse, check the correct rating for that circuit-the blown fuse might have been incorrect in the first place. Using a thicker fuse wire than the correct rating is dangerous.
