# Can time delay house fuse replace an ordinary fuse?

You could, but it would be safest not to. A time delay fuse will allow for a short (12 seconds or less) spike in the current (up to three times the rated current for the fuse)

# How can you measure a time delay fuse with a multimeter to determine if it is good or bad?

Set the multimeter for the "buzz" mode. This mode checks for electrical continuity. This means that the multimeter checks to see if there is a path for electricity to pass thr

# Is a time delay fuse the same as a slow burn fuse?

The short answer: Yes. The Long Answer: In Layman's terms yes, but not necessarily. It depends on who you're talking to. If you are talking to anyone working on electrical thi

# Why use a Time delay fuse versus non time delay?

A time delay fuse will allow for a temporary spike in the current (up to 100 or 200% of the fuse rating), such as when starting a motor. A regular (non-time delay fuse) will n

# What is the function of the time delay Fuse?

The time delay fuse allows a momentary overload due to startup current.

# What is the difference between a fuse and a time delay fuse?

A time delay fuse will not blow at the first sign of an overload. It will delay blowing just long enough to allow a motor to start or a compressor to startup.

# What is a time delay fuse used for?

A standard fuse will blow in just milliseconds when excess current flow or a short is detected. A time delay fuse on the other hand may take 5-10 seconds to blow under the sam

# What does a 35 amp time delay fuse look like when it blows?

If you can observe the fusible link it should be open and there should be some charring on the glass. Use an Ohm meter to confirm fuse is blown. If it is zero ohms across the

# What is the difference between a slo-blo fuse and a time delay fuse?

There is no difference. Slo-Blo is just a trademarked name for a time delay fuse.

# How can you tell if a time-delay fuse is burned out?

If you cannot tell by looking then check the continuity with an ohm meter.

# Can you use a 30 amp time delay fuse instead of a 30 amp inverse time circuit breaker?

Fuses and circuit breakers are rated differently as applied to electrical loads. A motor load of 12 amps would require a fuse rating of 21 amps ( 12 X 1.75=21) or the next sta

# How to know when a time-delay fuse is old or burn?

Check it with an OHM meter for continuity.

# What makes a time delay fuse burn out?

Short in circuit wiring or circuit overloaded.

# Can you use a time delay fuse in your central air conditioner of the same amp rating?

Yes, and you should use a time delay fuse.

# Should you use time delay fuse when installing a range?

No, use a standard fuse.

# What is a time delay relay function used for?

A time delay relay is used in applications that have a need to be automatically switched on and off. A few applications that require time delay relays are strobe lights, stop

# What size time delay fuse do you use on a 40 hp 230 volt 3 phase motor?

The electrical code book states that a 40 HP 230 volt three phase motor draws 104 amps. For that motor the wire must be rated for 131 amps, Non time delay fuses at 300 amps, t
