Hi everyone! I have an ACS Vesuvius which is acting up. It keeps blowing its fuse, the little glass tube fuse by the power inlet. It doesn’t happen immediately, but the last few fuses I’ve installed have not even lasted a day. Since it’s not right away, it doesn’t sound like anything is short circuited. I am using slow-blow 10 A fuses.
Does anyone know what might cause this? The very first time a fuse blew it melted some of the plastic in there and I had a hard time removing all of the fuse (which broke in my attempts). Would it be worth trying to simply replace the plastic part where the cable connects? Also, why is the fuse even needed? My household sockets are already in 10 A breakers.
