Questions we've already answered:

Q: I've just bought a second hand espresso machine with an electrical heater connected to a 440 V mains supply. The heater is 3.5 kW. What fuse do I need?

Answer from Amy: You need a 10 amp fuse.

Q: Our factory lights are flickering and our circuit breakers keep tripping. Are we using the wrong fuses?

Answer from Amy: Your electrical circuits are overloaded - you're drawing more electricity than your circuit can safely handle. This need attention immediately. Fuses blow and breakers trip for a reason. If your wall plates are warm or discoloured that's further proof that you have a problem.

 The main advantage of using fuses is that:

a. They provide the cheapest type of protection.
