    Exclamation

    Hello to all. I'm taking a test today in controls, relays, diagrams, cooling & heating anticipators....etc.

    I'm stuck with two questions, please help.

    * Plug Type fuses are restricted to 30 amps or less.
    True or False

    I'm going with TRUE

    * Cartridge Type fuses dual element slow blow fuses are for motor loads.
    True or False

    I'm stuck, not a clue. I can not find a fact in my notes or book.

    Your knowledge is greatly appreciate.

    True on the plug fuses.
    Cartridge type slo blow or dual element are for motor loads, but not all cartridge fuses are such, many used for other applications.
    Vague question but think they are looking for true there as well.

    I'd go with T & T as well. If we are wrong blame it on Dice.

    On RTU's with large fuses. What's the best/safest method of pulling and installing the fuses. Help settle an argument.

    Mike j

    With the power off and a pair of fuse pullers.

    Roman:
    Yes true & true ( dual-element fuses were made to handle starting current of motors )Only use for them.

    That is what helpers are for.
    Seriously though, how hard is it to change a fuse, even Dave Lennox and Bob Villa can do it........I think they can, but I'm not sure.
