6. How to change a plug fuse


You may find that one of your kitchen appliances makes the fuses “bang out” when it’s used / turned on. This may mean that the appliance’s mains plug needs a new fuse. Unplug the appliance, unscrew the plastic casing on the plug.


Remove the old plug fuse and check the amperage – usually 13A.


Replace with a new fuse of the same amperage and replace the plastic plug cover.


Plug the appliance back in and test, if it no longer makes the fuse box “bang out” you have been successful!
