How Do I Know if I Blew a Fuse?
Blowing a fuse is essentially synonymous (in function) to a breaker in a breaker box tripping. When the fuse blows, it will deactivate the associated circuit that the fuse was protecting, cutting off any associated lights, appliances, or other electrical applications.
What Does a Blown Fuse Look Like?
A “bad” or blown fuse will look cloudy and opaque, black, or grey. Some fuses may otherwise look fine, but the glass cylinder may be cracked or broken, or possibly the internal filament may have melted or snapped.
How Do I Reset a Fuse Box?
The process functions the same as, but works a bit differently than, a breaker box. Though with a breaker box resetting is as simple as flipping the breaker, a fuse has to actually be changed out and replaced if it fails. A blown fuse is used up, and no longer usable.
How Do I Change a Fuse?
Always start by shutting off your home electrical completely when working with your fuse box. First you’ll need to find out what size (amperage) the blown fuse is. This is usually printed clearly on the fuse box, and also can be found denoted by a small number on the fuse itself. Once you have the right size, the process is as simple as changing a light bulb; simply unscrew the old fuse, replace it, and then close the box.
