(3)Replacing the fuse

The fuse protects the electric system against overcurrent. Use the specific ampere rating of the fuse. Check to see that the components in each circuit are operating properly. If every component in a circuit is not functioning, it is an indication that the corresponding fuse is blown out. Replace the blown fuse with a spare fuse of the same capacity. If a part of the components in the circuit does not function properly, it is suspected that a bulb has burnt out. The burnt bulb should be replaced with a new one of the same capacity.
