Will not turn on

There are buss fuses inside. Most likely one or 2 are blown. There are 5-6 screws in the bottom(4 corners and 2 in the middle) that are in deep holes. these hold the cover on. The other screws on the surface are for various mechanisms, and should not be removed. Turn it over, lift off the cover (leave the cord attached, after unplugging it..). The fuses were right on top for my 3000 AF. Replacements may be available at an auto parts or hardware store. The type is usually marked on the cap on the end (voltage and amperage). You should check for any frayed or loose wires that caused it to blow, but sometimes, with age, heat, shock (dropped it?) they go out.

The fuse for the heat keeps blowing but dryer runs

if its an old round buss fuse that screws in the panel(especially an old 60 amp panel),sometimes the center where the fuse lands the insulation gets weak in this area and lets it arc over when the dryer calls for current to heat the element replace this with a sub box and breaker set-up.the other thing it can be is the element is touching the units case and grounding out causing the same problem

No sound: The receiver has suddenly stopped giving out any sound, regardless on which input I use. Have tried powering off/on (disconnecting all power), and checked front-speakers on another receiver.

That sounds like you blew the fuses inside the receiver. Take the cover off and check them. Typically thats the problem and if I'm not mistaken they are AGC-5 Buss fuses available at your local hardware store.

New dryer keep blowing 30 amp fuses

your problem (especially if you are using screw-in "plug fuses") i.e. BUSS fuses and cartridge fuses they get hot and with time the insulating disc that insulates hot from neutral (grnd) breaks down and with dryer current draw it arcs over and in summer its more humid which contributes to moisture,have a new sub(pony) panel if you have no room for another 240volt circuit in your main panel,that should cure your trouble

What type of fuse do you get for a Breeze AT EcoQuest unit?

A buss type fuse is like the glass tubeb with metal ends and just snaps in two clamp type holder. Any automotive store carries them. know what amperage, like 5, 10,15 ,20 etc. The 250 v is the norm. The fuse protects against amperage overload not voltage. They come in tins of assorted or specifc in fives. Good luck

89 f-150 no power to fuel pump

If it takes buying a set of fuses (which it might not even be a normal/buss fuse anyways), then I think it's worth it.
Most autoparts stores will help you out with locating where the part goes.

Fuse blue in the car adapter and at the same time garmin 300 nuvi went dead and wont start up with either car power or battery power.

Blue fuses are usually 5 amps.
Red ones, 10.
Yellow, 20.

The fuse inside a cigarette adapter is usually a 1A, buss fuse - available from Radio Shack or "The Source By Circuit City".

If your blue fuse blew, then visit your nearest department store, and purchase a new fuse. Buy a box of 5 or so just in case.
