You need to start tracing wires, the Larger Fuse can cause some MAJOR issues with the Sled. What you have is a HOT wire grounding out to another wire or metal. I would be looking close to the Engine FIRST and then tracing wires to lights...
If while you have the right fuse in, you can ISOLATE different systems and narrow your search that way

How do i fix prob with fuse blown on new world range cooker.replaced fuse but it blows again and sml pop sound and flash from knob control panel

You have to find where the dead short is.

The pop sound is the fuse blowing. The flash is where the short is. If you can get in behind the control panel and look for something that is obviously wrong, loose wire, burned wire touching the frame, but to test you really need a multimeter.

Easy way, call a service engineer.

The fuse pops when I plug in the set. Otherwise there is no power.

Does the fuse pop even when you have the TV off? If so, it's most likely it's a short in the power cord. Examine the cord closely, and see if there are any breaks in it. If you have a voltmeter, see if you're getting much resistance if you put one tip on each prong of the plug (while it's unplugged, of course). You should have infinite resistance, while the TV's off.

It could be something within the TV's power supply, but I think a damaged cord is more likely (and it's MUCH easier to fix, just cut the cord and splice a new one on). If you're sure it's not the cord, check it again... and if you're still sure, let me know and we can delve into the difficult things that are less likely, but possible, to be the cause.

My 98 oldsmobile regency keeps popping 15amp fuse tal lights and speedometer are out. Replaced once it lasted 2 days. Tried to replace again and it popped as soon as I put it in the slot. HELP and Thank...

You most likely have a short to ground in the supply circuit. Work from the bulb socket backwards to the fuse. Check between the hot supply line to ground there should be not circuit when the fuse is out. If you find one at any point, the short is between the last 2 points you checked. As a visual inspection, look for any blackened metal around any of the contact points that will usually indicate a short.

Brake lights saying on

I would suggest a circuit for the brake lights has shorted out somewhere causing the brake lights to have power constantly!

you will need to trace the wiring from the brake switch to the brake lights and check for shorting out.

you have a short on that fuse wire somewhere look for broken wires. dont put in a bigger fuse cause all you will do is melt the wire plus every wire around it and that will be really expensive. have somebody trace the short if you can't yourself. goodluck

Randy2465@yahoo.comwhen you turn setting on thermostat to cool the thermostat clicks but outside unit and the inside fan neither come on?

Sounds like you might have a low voltage short possibly at contactor at outside unit (Condenser).
What happens is if your contactor has a short it will pop a 3 or 5 amp fuse at the furnace circuit board. This fuse will continue to pop until the short is fixed the best way I have found is to take off all low voltage wiring at furnace circuit board put them back one by one first with R then W then G then Y if it pops at Y your contactor has to be replaced.

Oven blew a fuse

The POP sound normally indicates a short circuit fault (as opposed to overload) you need to have it looked at by a competent person.

GE spacemaker xl1800 and Pop tarts bad mix

it sound to me as if the high voltage diode is shorted. It could be inside the capacitor or out board the cap. The capactor could also be short but this is a rarity. Diodes are a cheep item . repace it and if it don't work its probably the magnatro. good luck.
