Glass fuses have a low breaking capacity. It's easy to see when they're blown: the glass will be discolored and the filament broken. Replace yours today!

Ceramic fuses are high or low breaking capacity and can be used in many applications. Ceramic color can vary from a very light beige to dark gray.

Glass and Ceramic Fuses

Replacing a blown fuse

Got a blown fuse but aren't sure about a replacement? Here is a video and simple guide on choosing a correct replacement based on part number, material and dimensions. 



Deciphering the part number:

The part number will be stamped on one end cap of the fuse. Each element is shown below.


F = Fast Acting

T = Time Delay

Current Rating:

1A, 5A,

32mA (.032A)

Breaking Capacity:

L = Low

(glass or ceramic)

H = High


Voltage Rating:



So based on the chart:

T1AL250V - time delay, 1 amp, glass, 250 volts

F5AH125V - fast acting, 5 amp, ceramic, 125 volts

Fast acting is sometimes listed as quick blow. Time delay is sometimes listed as slow blow.

The voltage rating must match or exceed the one stamped on the fuse. 250V fuses can replace both 125V and 250V fuses. In the example above the 5A fuse can be replaced by a 250V fuse.

NOTE: Voltage does not affect the physical size of the fuse. Please see below for different dimensions.

These types fuses come in 3 standard measurements as well as with axial leads. If you are replacing axial fuses you can use a larger fuse size to replace the blown fuse, provided you have the space to fit the larger dimensions.
