I can't find the where the fuse is at


    Your owner's manual will tell you where your vehicle's fuse panel is. Most models situate the fuse panel on the driver's side of the dashboard and under the steering wheel, or in the engine compartment, but location varies from vehicle to vehicle. Other are found in the front dash door jambs or in the glove box.

How do I run from a 100 amp main panel to a 60 amp subpanel, 125 from my house to the garage


See 60 Amp sub-panel image

Above image shows drawing of 60Amp sub-panel located next to main panel. Drawing shows #6 wire... 125' distance to garage calls for #4 wire. I ran #4 to my barn and have no problems.

Give thought to how many new breakers you want at garage.
See photo of subpanel that holds three 240V breakers

Using drawing as a guide. Replace existing 240Volt breaker with new 60 Amp breaker. Two hot wires connect to new 60 Amp breaker. Neutral connects to neutral busbar.

More space: You can free up space in main breaker box using a tandem breaker. Or by doubling up 2 lightly used 120V circuits onto one breaker. Do not double-up on 240 Breakers

Conduit: You want PVC conduit large enough to fit three #4 wires. Bigger conduit is easier to pull wires ... and maybe later ethernet wire, or alarm wire etc.

Ground wire: You can put a ground rod at garage and run #6 bare copper between sub-panel neutral-busbar and ground rod. Attach ground wire firmly with grounding clamp.

I want you to check with local electrical supply for exact code in your area concerning conduit requirements, grounding, and wire size. Tighten all lugs very tight against wire.

Renting old house with old power box uses 'plug in fuses' , doesnt have cut off safety switch ,i heard that i can by circut breakers to stop any surges and plug them into fuse box ,does that sound right ?...


Wow, all due respect, but someone would really be negligent to offer you a solution to this problem. An electrical panel isn't something to mess with, especially if you're asking these type of questions. Contact a professional electrician in your area or run the risk of electrocuting (that's DEAD by electricity) yourself. Good luck, and please be safe.

What you are wanting is an Outdoor Disconnect Switch- 100 AMP, but this panel is an example of what to look for,

Could it be the heating element/coils?


From the info you've given, I'd suggest confirming whether the electrical circuit breaker arrangement for the dryer is single-pole (one wire and handle, 120V) or two-pole (2 wires and handles, 240V).  The heating element requires 240V.  Also, you mentioned a "fuse box". Hopefully you meant circuit breaker panel.  The wiring in any house old enough to have fuses instead of breakers would be a major concern unless you're into indoor barbeques in the middle of the night.

F2e0 error on stove


"cycle the circuit breakers" is to turn the switch for the stove at the electric switch box at the main feed of the house electric panel. This is equivalent to unplugging the stove and plugging it back in.

In the old days, a circuit breaker was a "fuse" in the "fuse box"...

Jenn-Air Electric stovetop / oven range SCE4340B - Fuse blown ? ? ?


Andy, sounds like you lost a leg of power. Check the breaker box first. Maybe the contractors tapped an existing breaker instead of adding one for the burner/broiler. You would have to check the terminal block on the range. Should read 120V from each end to center and 220V across the two outer terminals. If you don't have this, something got messed up with the contractors. Catriver..post back
