Fuse blowing on model #lat8440oaa w

This machine has worked well for the three years I have owned it, butrecently I blew a fuse when I started the machine. I replaced the fuse, a 1 amp 250 volt fuse and the same thing happened. the machine is in excellent condition but dates back to 1992. the model # is lat8440aa. My question is, what is causing the problem? Is it as simple as a lid switch or is it more serious?

I have Hayward H400IDL2 heater 6 years old. I recently had #1 and #2 1.5 amp fuses blow. I replaced them and then the #4 2.5 amp blew so I replaced it. When I press the mode button to spa the heater


Hi, this is John the Hayward tech. If you are now seeing the #4 fuse go that is on the low voltage side. I would guess the main circuit board. I left a manual on your other post.

I have a 2007 Honda Civic 2 door bought the car found the legacy LA 960 in the trunk worked great for 1 year took on a 500 mile ride and woofer gave out. Took to a repair shop they said fuse of 20 amps...


1. Stop going to this shop.
A fuse that keeps blowing is a sign of a problem. You never replace a fuse with one of a higher amperage because the idea is the fuse is suppose to blow before the the wires melt and catch on fire. The reason it stopped working and the fuse didn't blow is probably be cause the wire did melt someplace and you are lucky the car didn't burn. If it did burn and the insurance company found the 40 amp fuse, they would probably have refused to pay.
The idea that a repair shop would do this tells me that they don't know what they are doing. Read this

The fuse in my Jensen JEN50 voltage converter blew and I need a new one. what size is this fuse?


Look at he fuse on the very end of the fuse there are some numbers. Amps and volts, go by that and replace it with the same exact fuse. If not , you can damage the equipment

Fan and lights come on and go off all day long on their own


We installed our Broan-Allure range hood about ten years ago. On three seperate occasions since, the fan has randomly turned on and none of the control buttons would turn it off. After a while it turns itself off. During those same times, when you turned the lights on, they would blink before finally staying on. On each occasion, I have removed the screens and metal underpieces to gain access to the circut board. Once you can see the circut board, remove and replace the 3 Amp fuse that is mounted on the board. (Radio Shack part # 270-1054)...even if the fuse looks good, replace it. Each time this has work for about three years, then it acts up again..
