Not a good idea. The fuse protects the wiring of the equipment. To high of an amperage fuse will let the wiring get hot. Being only a 15 amp fuse I assume the fuse is located on your furnace, if so your blower is drawing to many amps. Check for dirty air filters and dirty blower fins. If you have an old 60 amp house panel and that's where the fuse is located you might have additional house circuits using that fuse too pulling to many amps causing it to blow.

My 2008 suzuki grand vitara keeps blowing the fuses for the ACC outlets. both are 15AMP, but even with nothing plugged in, nothing down in the outlets and even with larger AMP fuses, they keep blowin


If you use too large a fuse, the wiring can catch on fire, and the whole car could burn up. You'll need an auto electrician to trace that problem. You can remove any bulb and unplug any device that is on the Acc(essories?) circuit; then see if a fuse will stay; start replacing items till you blow the fuse. It seems like a dead short which can surely melt wires if you keep taking chances. good luck.

2002 tracker,keeps blowing 15 amp fuse that runs heatr fan and lets car shift out of park


I looked at the wiring diagrams and those two circuits should be on two different fuses.
The shift lock solenoid is powered by the 10amp turn signal fuse and the 15amp stop light fuse. If the fuse blows when you put it in park, I would say the shift lock solenoid is the problem and the stop light fuse is the one that is blowing.
The heater fan and relay are powered by a 60amp fuse and a 15amp fuse but not the stop light fuse.
Its possible there is a short some where that has connected these two circuits.
You could disconnect the shift lock solenoid to see if the fuse still blows.

Why does my honda shadow 1100 american classic keep blowing 10 amp ignition fuse


DOES YOUR BIKE HAVE CORRECT IGNITION COIL IF IT TOO HIGHLY RATED I.E A SPORTS COIL YOU WILL PUT EXCESSIVE CURRENT THROUGH FUSE CAUSING IT TO BLOW. IS THE FUSE HOLDER SECURED DOWN VIBRATION CAN MAKE FUSES BLOW LIKE BULB FILAMENTS {TRY A 15AMP FUSE] IF THAT BLOWS DEFINATE OVER RATED COIL

Keeps blowing 15 amp fuses


your dryer element is shorted to the element housing which is the same as ground and this will blow the fuses,remove the elements electrical connections and isolate the connections, and now if the 15amp fuses don't blow then you know the element is the problem

The microwave won't turn on. it is off completely. Just happened last night. Have checked the electric fuses, poked the buttons, but noty on. Stove is ok.


You have to open it up and see if you can find the power fuse, usually a BUSS 15amp Slo Blo that protects the Microwave Tube from drawing too much current and causing a fire. These fuses degrade over time or some get through that are not quite 15 amps and blow.

I have a 99 windstar fuel pump was replaced but it keeps blowing the 15amp fuse under the hood, it wants to start but fuse keeps blowing. any ideas?


If it is blowing the fuel pump fuse, then when replacing the fuel pump one of the wires are pinched. Check the wiring. Even if the fuel pump is bound up or something then it still would not blow the fuse. More than likely the hot wire to the pump is pinched and grounding out.

Right turn signal blowing fuse


Fuses are a SAFETY device. Never replace fuses with larger amp ones. Take the bike to an authorized repair shop and get it done right. There could be a short or relay problem that can lead to more extensive problems down the road. Safety devices are put in place to protect you and the system. Like in a home: if you run 14-2w/grd to light fixture the max fuse to use is 15amp fuse. never put a 20 in because the wire can melt at higher amps. Same with your bike. the wire is not rated to handel more than is was designed and fused for.
