The fuse in the power plug is there to protect the cable. The fuse in the plug should be the same as the cable. For instance a 5amp cable should have a 5amp fuse. If the fuse blows all the time the cable could be faulty or there could be an overload in the power supply (perhaps the transformer has failed) that is causing the supply to draw more amps than the cable and fuse can cope with.
WARNING fitting a fuse higher than the cable rating could cause the cable to overheat and catch fire!

Why does my cigarette lighter keep blowing fuses every time I plug something into it

First make sure you have the right size fuse in it look at your owners manual it should tell you what size to put in there sometimes people blow a fuse and replace it with a weaker fuse it will work for a while till they plug something in that overloads the fuse then blows and if they sell the car the new owners don't know this they just keep replacing it with same type fuse that's in it. Second make sure whatever it is you are plugging in doesn't have a short itself try plugging in something different and see if it blows then if it doesn't then you know where your problem lies.

Why does my Definitive Pro Sub 1000 keep blowing fuses the second I put them in?

Sounds like the amp is shoot.
Never power on the amp without speaker connected.

Keep blowing fuses on gps 21 pro

Might want to list it in another area. If its blowing fuses you know you have something wrong--if it (I presume it does) has an external unit for power the problem is there. Also be aware not all fuses are the same--a generic fuse like radio shack etc may even if correct amperage pop for no reason.

Either a incorrect fuse (not talking about wrong amperage) or a short in the unit--one or the other.

My inverter keep blowing 40 amp fuses without load

Hi Trevor,
A 1000W can barely supply 5A at 220V, less than 10A at 110V. So if a 40A fuse blows, there is a serious problem and you should not attempt to use this unit after it has been checked by a qualified person. Please be careful!

Good luck!

What size wire should i use from battery to motor - bought a plug at bass pro for motor and wired with inline fuse of 15amps but keeps blowing fuse - wire i am using is typical auto wire (don't know guage)...

The new cost of your motor is nearly 1000 dollars, presumably there are comprehensive instructions on installation to minimise the risk of damage which could be very expensive. In particular damage to the motor control circuits due to incorrect fusing.
Do yourself a favour and contact the manufacturers directly

Definitive Pro-Sub 1000 subwoofer replacement fuse.

Fit a 3 or 2.5 anything lower, if you can get away with it, but nothing higher.
However the chances are that it blew due to an overload, often caused by a shorted semi-conductor acting like it was a piece of wire. So even fitting a smaller one and it blowing again doesn't mean it's due to the rating.

42" LCD HD TV keeps blowing fuses.

A ceramic fuse stands up to heat better than a non-ceramic fuse. I'm no pro, but it sounds like your power inverter board maybe bad. There are replacements out there. Good luck

What eq settings do i need

Hello ed4037, If you are blowing fuses this means that you are drawing too much current check your impedance value on your amplifier it should be 8 ohms to match the subwoofer's 8 ohms of impedance. In addition make sure that you have the proper value fuses. In other words you should not be tuning the amp not to blow fuses, because you should be able to go to full amplitude on your amp without blowing anything. As I alluded to this sounds like an impedance mismatch problem. I hope this helps, Thank you, Shuttle83
