Question about Maytag M3DH30B2A Dehumidifier
I have a Maytag M3DH30B2A dehumidifier, about 5 years old. The compressor was not turning on, while the fan was turning on. I traced the problem down to a fuse attached directly on the compressor unit, and this fuse is blown.
In looking for a replacement, I would like to know what type of fuse I can use. The dehumidifier itself has a rating of 4.7 A (at 115 V), while the compressor unit has a rating of 23 LRA. Hence, what fuse should I use? Does it need to be a delay type to accomodate the 23 LRA? The package of the fuse is something round that I have never seen before - about 1 inch diameter and 3/4 inch high. It has a number B170-150-241C.
Thanks for any info!
That part is a thermal protector. If you can't find it at Radio Shack they should be able to direct you to an appropriate electronics store.
