    Copper fuses! Get em while they're hot!

    Really Hot.

    This is on a large split system condenser. Data tag (right where they mounted this disconnect) clearly says "breaker or fuse size 110 amps"

    Is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

    A positive attidude will not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worthwhile.

    Spray it down with some WD-40, it'll be good for another 10 years.
    The picture in my avatar is of the Houston Ship Channel and was taken from my backyard. I like to sit outside and slap mosquitos while watching countless supertankers, barges and cargo ships of every shape and size carry all sorts of deadly toxins to and fro. It's really beautiful at times.....just don't eat the three eyed fish....

    Thats the best thing..they had a set of 200 amp mega fuses powering two condensing units. I got out of there and didnt look back.

    That's what you get when you use Type M fuses instead of Type L fuses
