    Hi every one
    Have an air pump which has blown the fuse and can not under stand what it states on the fuse,
    1125 TAM
    250V 2A
    7-C 045
    S>E JET
    I get no reading off the fuse on Ω so im sure it has blown,i have another one in the pump on the other side, is there any way of testing it to find out what the thermal rateing is ? and understanding the rest of it ,as ive tryed to get one from electrical supplyers and no one seemes to no what fuse it is.

    Some part of that should give the temperature that causes fusing, but it's a factory code. One way to get some idea of that temp is to look up the pump online and see if they give that spec.

    Before going too far, you might try a 2 amp fuse on a pigtail to see if the pump winding is shorted. If that fuse pops immediately, a pump replacement is more sensible than a thermal fuse.

    A slow blow should work ok for that, you also get 250V polly fuses nowadays.

    The thermal fuse serves a dual purpose. It protects against overcurrent and overheating.

    Hello,

    You can attach pictures using the "manage attachments" button a little bit down the page when you reply.
