Safety fuse? Will this fuse need to be replaced or just re-set?

  • Eric Smith Apr 28, 2007

    I took the back off the oven and can't find that part. The only part that looks close is a WP 3196958. Not sure if this is the thermostat safety switch or not. Do I have to take any other panels off the back to get to the thermostat?

The fuse is typically a one time item. It should be replaced. The oven will act as if it is pre-heating but will not actually heat. There is usually a couple of different ones in use , one common part number is a whirlpool part 4451442. This may not be the actual one for your range but it will be similar.

What kind of thermal fuse do i need for a Haan Si-35R steamer mop ?

Unfortunately, I don't have specific information on the Haan Si-35R steamer mop, including details about its thermal fuse. However, I can provide you with some general guidance on thermal fuses.
A thermal fuse is a safety device that interrupts the flow of electricity in case of overheating. They are typically designed to be non-resettable and need to be replaced if they are triggered. Here are some steps you can take to determine the type of thermal fuse needed for your steamer mop:
1. **Check the Manual:**
Refer to the user manual or any documentation that came with your Haan Si-35R steamer mop. The manual may contain information about the thermal fuse, its specifications, and where to obtain a replacement.
2. **Inspect the Existing Thermal Fuse:**
If the thermal fuse in your steamer mop has blown, you can inspect the fuse itself for any markings or labels that indicate its specifications. Note down any information such as voltage, current, and temperature rating.
3. **Contact the Manufacturer:**
Reach out to Haan customer support or the manufacturer to inquire about the specific thermal fuse needed for your model. They may be able to provide you with the exact specifications or recommend a suitable replacement.
4. **Measure the Fuse:**
If you have the technical expertise and the necessary tools, you can measure the dimensions of the existing thermal fuse and check its electrical specifications. Be cautious and ensure the device is unplugged before attempting any measurements.
5. **Professional Assistance:**
If you're uncertain about the replacement process or lack the technical knowledge, consider seeking assistance from a professional appliance repair service. They may have access to replacement parts and can ensure the correct installation.
When replacing a thermal fuse, it's crucial to use a fuse with the same or equivalent specifications to maintain the safety and proper functioning of the appliance. Using an incorrect or incompatible thermal fuse can pose a safety risk.
Keep in mind that the availability of replacement parts may vary, and it's essential to obtain the correct part for your specific model. Always prioritize safety and, if in doubt, consult with the manufacturer or a qualified technician.

Use of Fuses in Equipment for Safety

Never bypass a fuse. Replace it with the same rating of fuse. Do not use a wire to replace the fuse. Fuses are used for the protection of the equipment & safety of the user. Doing anything against these rules means your equipment will have more damage & may catch fire.<br /><br />- sonsunny

Replaced air compressor in1999 mercury mystique replaced fuses worked for few minutes then stopped

If you mean A/C compressor, there are safety switches for high and low pressure. You need to evacuate the A/C system with a Vacuum pump and then fill it with Freon. If you already did this, chances are that when the Freon stabilized, it was either too high or too low of a pressure and the safety switches worked.

You will need a set of safety torx screw drivers to remove the cover of the microwave. On the circuit board you should see the fuse. In some cases the fuse is soldered in and cannot be changed with out the use of a solder extractor and solder iron to reinstall.

My Bose wave radio suddenly is dead as a doornail. It showed no signs of malfunction, just won't work now.

Perhaps it is just a fuse blown. There is one small fuse inside the unit. If the fuse is OK, then the next step might the transformer. If the transformer is OK, then it might be the Bridge rectifier IC GBU series

Sunbeam SMW5500 micro/convection oven shorted out when opening door

You are decribing a typical Door Safety Switch problem. The Door Safety Switches has Failed.The Door Safety Switch is designed to shut down the Micro in the event the Micro is still cooking when the door is being opened. The first "Click" of the switch cuts off the "Cook". If it does not cut off the "Cook", the second "Click" blows the power. Otherwise it would "Cook" with the door open, and I need not to tell you how DANGEROUS that could be. It first Tripped the Circuit Breaker which supplies power to the Microwave. After Re-Setting the Breaker the same thing happened except this time the Micro is DEAD- not even a light working. Yes, there is a line FUSE inside the Micro. You however need to address the Door Switch SHORT before replacing the fuse. If not, it will just Blow The Fuse Again, and Again, until the Short is corrected.
Call around, ask How much to replace a Door Safety Switch.
Good Luck!
