A circuit breaker is similiar to a fuse (a circuit protector that will burn out when too much current is pushed through it). The difference is that when a fuse goes it is no longer usable. When a circuit breaker goes it will reset itself when it cools and become usable again. Circuit breakers are usually used on circuits with heavier loads such as windwield wiper motors etc.

My dls45 keeps blowing circuit breaker tried different circuit and does the same. Any suggestions

IF this device is causing a household circuit breaker to trip, the issue is related to the transformer being shorted. This is something that you should have repaired. The availability of parts is the main issue.

Fuse blows as soon as you incert it into yhe ignition circuit on my C300H countax

You have a short somewhere and you need to trace the wiring. For your diagnosis, use "circuit breaker" fuse which will auto-trip/reset if there is a short or high amp draw. I even replaced some of my fuse with circuit breaker.

Hey Strech thanks again there are six terminals on switch the red is on the one 10:00 and that is going to the circuit breaker underneath the dash the blue is on the one about 1:00 that also is going to...

The older Knuckleheads (and flatheads) and early Pans had 5 terminals, but later ones (like yours) had 6 terminals.

You keep saying the BLACK one goes back to the battery, but you haven't told me (I have only been ASSUMING) if it goes to the POSITIVE terminal of the battery, NOT the negative, correct?

IF the BLACK wire is in fact coming from the battery's POSITIVE side, hook it up to the 4 o'clock position - the jumper wire going from this terminal to the one at 1 o'clock IS NEEDED TO FUNCTION PROPERLY!

You stated, "the red is on the one 10:00 and that is going to the circuit breaker underneath the dash the blue is on the one about 1:00 that also is going to the circuit breaker"

Does this mean BOTH the RED and BLUE wires are going to the SAME circuit breaker?
If so, do they BOTH connect at the same circuit breaker terminal stud, or one to one stud (at one end of the circuit breaker), and the other to the other stud (at other end of circuit breaker)?

30 amp Starter/Ignition fuse keeps blowing when i turn the ignition key. The instrumentpanel lights are dim and then the fuse blows.

I am assuming you are talking about the circuit that powers the key switch. I'm showing a fuseable link to the starter relay instead of a fuse.
If it is the circuit that powers the switch, I would disconnect the switch and see if the fuse blows as each circuit is powered one at a time using a jumper wire. You can get 30amp circuit breakers that plug into the fuse slot to use while you are testing circuits.
You may need a repair book or shop manual to find out what is powered by that fuse since it is most everything on the car.

2004 mercury 40hp 2 stroke will not start. Fire to the brand new spark plugs. Turns over strong. just no internal combustion. Seems like it's missing the internal "boom" to ignite. Carbs are clean....

if you have spark at the plugs there is a complete ignition circuit for it to start
fuel is the question --are the plugs wet or dry
dry plugs indicate no fuel
wet plugs indicate flooding
inside these motors there are reed valves that open on induction and close for the compression stroke so the mixture is pushed into the combustion chamber
these reed valves fail and the mixture is swapped between cylinders in the inlet manifold hence no combustion mixture for the cylinders
Talk wit a mercury service center for the parts and processes

Light downstair keep tripping our fuse box

Is it really a fuse box ? or breakers ? If nothing is running on that circuit ,you probably have a short circuit , the fuse or breaker is saving you from a fire.

Where doze the 30 amp fuze go for the power windows on a 1997 chevy suburan

There isn't a "fuse" but there is a circuit breaker for the power windows. I'm not sure of the amps but I can tell you the location of this. It is located in the fuse panel inside the vehicle (below is a picture of its location). Also below is a diagram of the fuse/circuit breaker layout (sorry it's a little blurry but the best I could do). The circuit breaker I am talking about will be the one marked "B". I hope this helps and good luck.

Why do the headlamps keep flashing

you probably have a bad circuit breaker. in the head light circuit there is a self resetting breaker that can get week over time. thats what i would suspect in this case.

Wiper fuse keeps blowing intermittently.

It looks like the wire circuit for the wiper motor is touching the car body when shaken so the only thing you can do is shake the wires and terminals yourself while engine is running then maybe you can pinpoint where the earthing is.
