    Looking for who makes those furnace fuse circuit breakers. Do they make a 7A?

    Used one the othr day. Brand new, smelled smoke and found the xformer fried and the thing never did pop. Oh well, found the short fixed and ate the $11 for a new xformer. From nw on ill just blow a. 75 fuse and be done with it.
    Went home and messed around in the shop with popper, worked a couple times, didnt work a bunch, prolly just a fluke, so in the trash it went.
    My thought is, if a fuse is blowing, seek and ye shall find, rather than pop, pop, pop.

    Should've used the 3 amp, instead of the 5 amp popper.:chairshot:

    For a simple short or high amp draw issue I wouldn't need one either

    Just a thought for future. I stole the low voltage circuit breaker out of old York units going to the recyclers. Have a 3 and a 5 Before I thought of that I used fuses. Usually find the short before I use a box of 5 lol

    I had one of those one time troubleshooting an intermittent short. It tripped the first time, second time the board fried. Turned out to be a shorted heat relay. It went in the trash after that.

    Now I use an amp clamp on the transformer and briefly install the fuse or jumper. If the load is too high pull out or kill power.
