ZLC fuses
12/22/21 at 18:26:40
 
Recently I've been reminded of the great value in having spare fuses for all equipment.

I want to get backup fuses for my ZLC. I know that Steve put 8 amp fuses in there and it's also rated for 10 amps. I know there are dual fuses. Are both fuses the same, 8 or 10 amps? Thanks!

As I recall they are both the same.  Mine blew on initial start up and Steve sent me new ones.  I also bought some ceramic back ups (that I never put in since I was afraid to turn my ZLC off) and they were all the same amperage.

I don't remember what Steve sent me but the ceramic fuses I bought are all 10A.

Thanks Archie.

I have turned my ZLC on and off dozens of times with no issue. I've had it in three locations. When I first got it it would blow the breaker for that area a few times, but not the fuses.

Steve mentioned he sent 8 amp fuses with it and they're original. I'll get 10 amp replacements. Appreciate that.

As it turns out, over the years with the ZLC my power has gone off a few times and the ZLC fuses have been fine.  Now my excuse for not putting the new fuses in is that I don't want to hassle with unplugging everything and taking that heavy brick off the shelf!

I hear you. That is part of my exercise regimen.
