Blowing 50 amp high blower fuse instantly in 1997 3500HD sierra GMC.. all other speeds work except for High speed..

I would suspect a short in the blower motor. Lower speeds are through resistors, high speed is direct to the motor. Unplug the motor and try going through the speeds.

I changed blower motor & resistor. I to replace motor and keeps blowing 2 15 amp fuses in box under hood.

well the blower is not shorted.
there can be a short anywhere from the switch to the blower.
did you look at the operators guide first to see if the fuse size is correct. man blower suck 13 amps. or more.
changed? does that mean a new blower or used?????

a blower can be hand tested and hot wired
i do that with 2 things.
a jumper clip with 20amp inline fuse and 16gage wire.
and my ammeter connected. (clamp)
if the blower works and does not suck too much current its ok.
its just a simple DC brush motor.
and can blow and still be bad, see why? ( armature segment shorts)
but sounds to me like harness shorts.
if the fuse blows with no resistor and no blower, its a harness short.
i dont have fuse box spec, so you will have to find that.

OMG, i looked in the online fsm.
what wierd car..... this blower.
its got 2 fuses for that blower,
EB5 and EB6 wired in parallel,, what joke that is.
the short must be on the blue-white wire (ONLY)
if at all.

here is the proof.
amazing how books work. huh?

My girl's '99 Hyundai Sonata all windows are stuck. I replaced the blown fuse, but the new one blew too. I watched a third fuse while someone else turned the key to the "on" position, and the...

Hi, I wouldn't open the door just yet. Not sure what you have now that someone has "made it to work," but below is the stock setup. I'm assuming the fuse that is blowing is the 10 amp fuse #16 in the dash fuse box. There is a relay in the passenger compartment relay box that you need to check. First pull the relay out and put a fresh fuse in. Does the fuse still blow when you turn the key on? If yes, suspect the fuse box itself has a short, or the wiring is not as it should be. If not, suspect the relay has a short--try another relay (you can borrow a similar relay from somewhere else in the car for troubleshooting). Please try this, and we'll go from there.

What size fuses for the plug does the hitachi mcb30 microwave take? 2 13 amp fuses have now blown?please advise?

It should normally use 13 amp fuses. The blowing of the fuses could be caused by a short somewhere either in the plug top or somewhere else along the circuit.

No wipers, blows fuse immediately after insertion.

bottom line is that you have a short to ground in the wiper circuit

these are some of the toughest to repair

first thing you want to do is follow ALL the wires from the wiper motor and switch

inspect for anything that looks like it has been rubbed raw!

there are some tools I have that you can buy at most pro-shops, most are called short-finders

they work by applying a small current on the suspected circuit and then use a "finder" to indicate where the short is located

another old school method is to install a bigger fuse and follow the smoke! not a good choice on anything since 1980

good luck and keep us posted

The dryer isn't getting hot. I know there's a


Thanks for using FixYa. If your dryer isn't working or isn't getting heated up, you'll need to check the following to be sure what exactly the issue is--
Blows fuses or trips circuit breaker —ELECTRIC Models:
• The amperage readings are at 240 volts. One line will be 24 amps and the other line will be 21 amps. The neutral line will be at 3 amps. If the above amperages are not present, then the house wiring, fuse box or circuit breaker should be suspect.
• Shorted heating element to housing.
• Incorrect wiring or a wire shorting to ground.
• Drive motor winding shorting to ground.

Blows fuses or trips circuit breaker —GAS Models:
• If igniter is not glowing, check for 120 V at igniter.
• Igniter harness may be loose and shorted to base.
• Incorrect wiring or a wire shorted to ground.
• Drive motor winding shorting to ground.

If it runs for a few minutes and then stops, then check for the following:--
• Empty dryer.
• Check motor spins freely.
• Lint buildup around drive motor.
• Low voltage present.
• Blower impeller blocked in blower housing.
• Drive motor - start switch contacts stuck closed.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Adcom gfa 555 blows the 10 amp fuse and the 6 amp fuse on the far right

Any fuse blowing is caused by a shorted component in either the power supply section or main audio amp part. Follow the fuse circuit and see where it leads you. Look around for burnt of damaged parts. Suspect anything sitting on a heat sink. The most common culprit is the audio amp main transistors, especially if someone shorted the speaker leads together. In the power part it could be the transformer, the large Electrolytic capacitors, rectifier, or voltage regulator. Some amps use an IC for amplification and this can blow the fuse.

Blowing a 40 amp ignition fuse everytime I turn the key over. Suspect short in starter

It is a grounding problem.Your motor does not have a good ground from the motor to the frame..Bad starter will not blow a fuse. Clean all of the grounding straps especially the big ground wire from the battery to the motor. Bet if you check that little ground from the battery to the frame it will be melted..because the main ground to the engine is bad..
