Fuses Help Guide

Fuses “blow” if a current exceeding the 3.15A or 5A fuse rating is drawn from the socket.

High wattage devices, such as floor-standing printers, vacuum cleaners, heaters, hair dryers and kettles, may cause a fuse to blow.
High wattage electricals should be plugged into a 13A wall socket.

Heater that may have high wattage
Lower wattage devices such as laptops, desktop printers, mobile phones and printers are unlikely to blow fuses.
If your device or equipment isn’t working when plugged in to an OE unit, check the socket with a low power device, such as a phone.
•If only one socket is not working, then replace the fuse.
•If all the sockets are not working, check the mains and replace all the fuses.


Step 1

Check the fuse clip to see which fuse is required. Red=3.15A Yellow=5A

Step 2

Place the flat end of a flat ended screwdriver into the indent in the fuse holder, then lever it out to reveal the fuse.

Step 3

Push the fuse out of the holder and fit the new fuse. Then push the carrier down until the top of the fuse holder is flush with the socket face.
If all the sockets in a power module are not working, then first check the power supply to the module is correctly plugged into the mains and change all the fuses.
If the unit is still not working after replacing the fuse, then call our dedicated Customer Support team, who are ready to help.
