Hi, The fuse blows due to a fault in the circuitry which can be: the final transistor pairs or in the DC to DC converter (if it is present) or shorted reverse protection diode (which only happens when the amp is wired wrong even if for just an instant). In any event, it would require going inside. You have to be familiar with component level repair to correct the problem, otherwise it would be best to have an electronics technician have a look at it. Hope this be of some help and pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.

Amp fuse 30a keep blowing

You have possibly melted a couple of wires together along the radio circuit. Also the radio unit itself has 1 or more protection fuses actually inside the unit that have blown, usually at back of unit in little bay near the wire clusters.
Check your relays too, a blow out through jump starting can do all sorts of little burn-outs.

97 chey blazer alernator overcharging, blowing fuses

Sounds like the 10 amp fuse was too small to begin with. Possibly the old alternator was too weak to blow it. 20 amp sounds more like it. Someone probably stuck the wrong fuse in at some time.

30amp AM 2 fuse blows as soon you turn on the key & car will not start

This is common about this time on these Camrys. I own three. The AM2 fuse is blowing because a coil, capacitor, or supressor has gone bad in the distributor. To test this disconnect the two wire connectors to the distributor. Replace the AM2 fuse. Turn the ignition. If the fuse doesn't blow. The distributor.

You only replace a fuse 1 time,then if it blows, you know
what circuit has a problem

Then you get out your wiring diagrams & start at the
fuse & work your way to the most common item, that
would cause a fuse to blow

Testing as you go,if necessary.

If you want to keep asking questions,guessing,
and wasting time,that is up to you

Blowing 20 amp fuse

Hi that fuse should be a 25 amp and it runs the blower, heater, the day time running lamps, automatic light control and the rear defogger you would have to check each unit at a time what I would do is put a hire fuse and look for smoke on the wiring as soon as iI see whats burning I take the fuse off but you have to be quick and pull out the fuse before any thing burns if not check each unit mention and look for good luck.

Blowing of fuses

The reason your blowing fuses is the amp needs at the least a 150 amp fuse on the wire that runs to your bat. There are fuse blocks that you can put 4 40amp fuse and theres the high dollor ones that you can put all the way to 200amp. When you trun up your amp its drawing to much current for the little 40 amp fuse that you have and will blow it everytime. I recomend Running a 4 gage wire to bat and ground with same. Get you a 150 or above amp fuse from a car audio shop somewhere. anyway sounds like from what you decribed, theres nothing wrong with your amp just the wires and fuse are not big enouf to handle the current that your amp pulls.

If the amp blows a fuse with no remote voltage applied, the amp has a short in the primary side of the power supply. If the fuse only blows after remote voltage is applied, the amp probably has shorted output transistors.

Washing machine fuse blows every couple of washes

the machine is pulling to much power.check to see if it is on a 15 or 20 amp outlet. you said you replaced the fuse. the amp size should be on it. if it is a 15 amp fuse,plug the machine into a 20 amp circuit and see if the fuse blows then. it shouldn't since it wasn't blowing everytime on the 15 amp circuit, but never put a 20 amp fuse in a 15 amp socket! the fuse can handle the load[ no pun intended], but the electrical wire would burn not blowing the fuse, thus causing a fire.
hope this helps.
