Bryant Plus 90 fuse replacement
 
Hello and thanks for reading,
I have a Bryant Plus90 furnace model #350MAV048100
This is a picture of the sticker. http://img221.imageshack.us/img221/592/bryant6dy3.jpg

Some googling tells me the fuse on the board is a 3amp fuse, even though it has the letter E on it. Can I replace this with a typical 3amp fuse?
I found a listing on Ebay for one the title was this
ATO3 CARRIER/BRYANT GAS FURNACE CIRCUIT BOARD 3AMP FUSE

What does "ATO3" mean?

I would like to pick one up at walmart on my way home so I don't have to bundle up tonight.

I accidentally blew it while shorting R and G together trying to set the blower speed.

Try turning the fuse over. it might say three then.

That was my initial thought, but for some reason it just didn't look like a 3. :) However if you go with LED numbers then it's got to be a 3.

After some more searching it looks like ATO simple means a standard auto fuse. Picking one up at walmart should do the trick. The one that I have is made by littlefuse and is rated 32V. It looks like a car fuse and I might be able to borrow one out of my car if I want to save myself a trip to walmart tonight.

OIE! (smacking forehead with open palm)

I think you are just trying to have a little fun and are not completely serious .

I edited my post (no longer 100% certain). :wink: I think my dyslexia got the better of me.

Good thing it wasn't a 460 v 3 phase cartridge fuse.

Poor guy may have tried buying a shock absorber in stead.

The 50 cent walmart special did the trick.

Now your SURE you didn't get the Matel Slot Car fuse by mistake?

dgbehrends 11-11-2008 04:45 PM

Yep I'm pretty sure. I think the slot car fuse was a lot more expensive. :laughing:
