My Dewalt 735 planer won't turn on. I blew the house fuse a few times, it would start after I came out. Now it won't start at all and it's been a couple days

The 735 draws 15 amps, which is the rating of typical lighting circuits in homes. The receptical in the wall is sometimes 15 amps although those circuits usually have 20 amp breakers. Since you said "fuse", it might be a bad fuse or even the wiring between the two. Circuit breakers go bad also. If you can confirm the receptical supplies voltage, it is time to check the 735.

Unknown if the device has a termal switch inside. I doubt it would go bad, but you implied a resting period allowed it to run several more times after the fuse in the basement was replaced. If it reset once, it should do it again. If you can find a diagram, there might be a fuse inside, but someone would have to take it apart to check.

A motor can get so hot that a solder joint inside can let loose and it will never run again. Sometimes the coil (windings of the motor) can short out (melt together) and this will increase how much current goes through it and also generate more heat and melt more windings together. Besides producing a smell, your house fuse would burn out real quick.

I had a chuckle over your 2nd sentence but I dare not say why. If it started after you came out (of the house), why did you not run it for a longer time?

A motor requires more power at the instant of turn on. 15 amps of running current will require 20 amps or more when starting. "slow blow" fuses (vs quick action) and circuit breakers can deal with the short period over current requirements.

How do i fix my dewalt 55155 air compressor

It is a 15 amps motor and will need 6 times (90) that amount of amps to start up. Plugging it into a 15 amps circuit may work but a 20 amps circuit is more apropiate. Kitchen circuits are 20 amp circuits.
You can try plugging the compressor directly into the wall and see if it refills with air without trippiing the circuit breaker. Using an extension cord should be done with a #12 or #10 wire gage type, smaller type will cause a power loss in the cord and will cause the compressor motor to trip the circuit breaker.
Power formula is I square R, or the amps multiplied by itself and by the resistance of the wire. E.G. 90x90x4 = 3200 watts. This is at start up. To find the voltage drop divide the watts by current, 3200/90 = .... get the point? Keep voltage drops to a minimum, use heavy wire gage extension cords.

Why does dewalt 55155 keeps tripping motor reset. Plenty of current on a 20 amp circuit

Place amp meter into circuit to determine amp draw at time of reset trip. If higher than 15 amps suspect leaking check valve or failing capacitor. If it trips at lower than 15 amps suspect weak reset breaker. Good luck

Need a 12 volt relay with operating current less than 0.1 amp and switching current below 1 amp

most relays run on 9v up and can be from 0.1 amp up to 1 amp but it depends on the pin type. 5 pin or 4 or 3. 3 pin is live feed type. 4 and 5 pin are separate feeds one to the switch and then the power from what you want to use feeds the circuit. if its on a volvo as stated you will need a high rating amp type as it will just burn out.

We have a lioghtolier 600 volt dimmer switch talking to an HAI OmniPro and it stopped working. It has two other switches nearby and they work fine. The problem switch has no blue LED on when the light is...

Recycle the the dimmer switch and replace it with a new one. The dimmer switch was probably rated at 600 Watts. Therefore, 600 Watts/120 Volt which you house voltage equals= 5 amperes.
5 amps is the maximum current for the dimmer switch.

That means the voltage is 120V/240V with max current 5amp/2 1/2 amp. The HAI OminPro is drawing to much current and it's exceeding the the current limits of the dimmer switch.

Get a new dimmer switch that maximum current of 15 amps with 120 volt house voltage. That will fix you problem. GB....stewbison

Easy to replace - IF you can find spares !
Most manufacturers declare their products obsolete after 10 years (some even earlier).
However, you may be able to fit a standard chassis mount ON/OFF toggle switch and solve the problem (assuming that only the ON/OFF switch is faulty).
Use a switch that has a plastic body and mounting shaft, to avoid safety problems.
Select a switch with a current rating equal to the stated rating on the machine's spec label (usually at the rear of the machine). If the rating is only stated in Watts, then simply divide Watts by the rated mains voltage to get the current.
If no lable can be found, then select a switch that can handle at least 10 amps if the rated mains voltage is 110 - 120Vac, or 5 amps if the rated mains voltage is 220 - 240 Vac.

Can I use a 5 amp 240v AC domestic fuse to replace 5 amp 12v fuse

A fuse is rated for it's current carrying capacity so yes you can use a 240 volt 5 Amp fuse in a 12 Volt circuit.
The Voltage is given to indicate the insulation of the fuse, i.e. if you used a 12 volt fuse in a 240 Volt circuit it may arc and therefore is not suitable. You can always use a fuse with a higher voltage rating in a lower voltage rated circuit.
A 5 Amp fuse will carry 5 Amps indefinately and will only blow at 2 or three times it's rated current.

I have a 13.2v battery and a 35 watt bulb. How

What's the voltage rating for the bulb ?

current flow would be approx 2.65 Amp, the switch should sustain atleast 30 - 50% excess current, 4 or 5 amp switch would be a better choice.
