3.15 amp 250 vac fuse

Recommended Posts

 I am curious where one may find one of these locally. Or in another controller used on RVs.

 

https://www.alliedelec.com/search/productview.aspx?SKU=70149708

 

This is just a picture, but I need one that is 3.15 amps 250 vac.

 I have a power gear leveling controller that has stoped retracting a rear jack. I talked to power gear and they say, and there service documents say to replace the fuse.

 So I never Sean a fuse as such or did not realize what it was. The customer would like it fixed a sap . So just wondering where one may find one . I have lots of RV boards laying around . But I even thought they may be in a CB radio..

 

 

  Thanks. Vern

A radial sub-mini you'll likely only lay hands on at an electronics supply store. Can't think of any RV appliance boards that might have one. Possibly out of a stand alone battery charger, a TV power adapter/power supply, lighting ballast... (?) It'll have to be a 120/240 device for any hope of finding one to rob.

Might consider just "MacGyver'ing" a standard fuse holder onto the board to hold them over for a couple of days while you order one in.

You don't say where local is local. I found many suppliers on-line. The most recognized is Granger, they may have a store near you. I searched 'Buss SR-5-3.15-BK'

I've seen that style fuse in a cordless drill battery charger. I  soldered an inline fuse holder in it's place, as a temporary fix. It's still there. There is a Grainger store in Billings.

Thanks for all the good thoughts. If it was mine I would do something to fix it.

 

 But it is a customers , so should be done correctly.

 

 I did think of a appliance repair shop that I am going by today so will stop there.

 

 No Grainger in the local.

An appliance repair might have them as some microwave units do use such a fuse but I'm not sure of the value those are. I can't think of much else that I have seen those used in for appliances, but it is very possible that they might be there. Any good electronic supply house should be able to get them if not in stock.

Montana is similar to Canada, "local" is a rather open definition of geography. 

Just make sure the problem is resolved before smoking the replacement fuse.

I would want to know whats wrong with the unit that is causing the fuse to blow( If it is in fact blown). You may be spending a lot of time for a final fix only to find that you need more fuses during trouble shooting.

 Customer is getting the fuse. Could not find it locally.

 

 It operates a coile to release pressure on a rear jack.

 

 Will keep informed.
