An 800 watt appliance consumes just over three amps with maybe a surge on switch-on but a thermal fuse isn't primarily rated in amps but in degrees (temperature).
The temperature of the replacement fuse should be identical to the original - usually marked on the body. If the original marking has disappeared you will need to use an educated guess or draw on the experience of an appliance engineer if the appliance specifications aren't available.
Get a switch with the same or higher voltage and current rating, and similar mounting and terminal connections. If you can't find the rating on the switch itself, use the nameplate rating on the appliance label.
Once you have these numbers, go to the Carling Tech toggle switch page and drill down through the selections to identify what you need. Toggle Switches
When replacing the fuse must be consistent with the original fuse specification, cannot arbitrarily increase the current rating of the fuse, cannot use other conductive objects instead of more. If change to once again blow a fuse, circuit fault has occurred, should ask professional troubleshooting again after mount fuse, must not with increasing fuse specification to deal with, or is likely to cause a fire.auto diagnostic tool
you must read the same fuse in the metal part, the specification, normally will be 15amp, 240VAC, However confirm with the indication printing specification in the same fuse, You can buy from R. schak or another electronic store. God bless you
You can call it a fuse box or panel. The unit usually comes as part of the harness. You can usually find a good used unit in most scrapyards or, you can make a "work around" by detaching the box and locating the wiring that feeds and is served the broken fuse holder. Then, all you need to do is buy an in-line fuse holder and bypass the original by attaching the wires from the holder to the backside of the panel. Use one rated at or above whatever the fuse you are replacing and use the same fuse that belongs there. If you do this, the only caution is to make sure you don't pinch any wires when you put it back together. It sounds complicated but it's far easier than installing a complete unit and it shouldn't cost you more than $10.00.
If you have the original fuse, it's the number stamped on one of the end caps after the three letters denoting the fuse type. Most manufacturers also print the fuse rating on the power supply circuit board ("Caution: replace fuse only with...")
I have one of these sets in the shop now, but I haven't opened it yet. Post a reply if you can't find the fuse type and rating, and I'll let you know what my project uses.
I assume you already know fuses in TV sets don't blow by themselves, but indicate another part is shorted. Check the diodes, transistors and power ICs in the power supply before plugging the set in. If you see any bad capacitors, fix those also.
Try putting a 20a fuse in it . if it blows, call a pontiac dealer and ask to speak with a technician. You can also buy a chilton or online repair manual at mitchel 1.com to get a diagram. The horn may need to be replaced.
