Where to buy a fuse
#1
I need to buy a particular type of fuse (for the inside of a bluray player). It is, for full information, a 15 amp ceramic fuse (20mm x 5mm) 240 volts (or thereabouts).
Does anyone know where I might buy one on the Island? I tried ChinaTown and looked in Superbarato at Matorral.

I’m not sure, but what about Ideal or Electron ?, or maybe the Botique up in the industrial estate in PdR ?

Try Dielca - on the same industrial estate as Ideal, next road back - the down road  - and it  is on the last block on the right as far as I remember ... All things electrical in there.  Can you take a photo of it to show them what you need/

Ferreteria la Hondura in Caleta should stock fuses like this. I would also ask at Petrol station and visit Electron/Ideal as suggested by Can.

Hard to believe that Blu-ray player would pull 15A from the socket.

Just crossed my mind, if you need the fuse urgently, look around the house for a spare UK (extension?) lead. Most of them contain a 13 amp fuse.

Funny thing is I went to put the car through the car wash and took the fuse out of my pocket 'for safe keeping' and put it in the tray near the handbrake. After washing the car forgot to pick up the fuse drove away and a few minutes later heard the fuse roll and disappear never to be seen again.

Yes, I think I will do that. The fuse was 15amp  from INSIDE the machine, so a 13amp should blow quicker (?) - why would they put a larger capacity fuse inside?
I think a standard fuse may be a tad big though.

Yes it will. But if it will blow the fuse (again - I guess) than there's something seriously wrong with the player. 13-16A breakers are usually serving multiple sockets around the house.

Thanks, but I found a fuse and as I thought it is a little too big. i think what I need is 20mm x 5mm - a standard UK fuse is 25mm x 6mm
