Electrical technicians have a big resposibity to be carefully solve electrical fault. Because electrical technical 's one mistake can lead to loss of property and life. I understand above problem how technical without knowing problem changes the fuse.

And to think. I actually held repair technicians above most car mechanics. I guess it all depends on the person.

The repair technician had a nice and easy repair going that he could make a nice profit on and you went and screwed it up.

In aFender amp there are a few things that will make a fuse pop. A leaky filter cap will certainly cause a problem, as will a leaky cap across the cathode bias resistor. But the very nastiest ones are tose capacitors coupling to the output tube grids, because a leak there will also cause the tube life to be shorter by a large amount and possibly burn the output transformer, an item expensive to replace, if it can be found at any price. That is why I recommended replacing them with 600 volt units, or even 1000 volt caps. And the low leakage ones were the best choice.

It worked perfectly.  The replacement breaker was huge, but the spec was perfect.

So I am wondering if the replacement breaker worked out as intended? Or NOT?

 Being a huge Fender fan, I gotta ask, why in the world was the fuse blowing? The only one I ever took out was when my drummer knocked a Coke bottle off my amp and something akin to a Mentos fountain showered my 6L6s. The Coke shorted the plate to the filament, wiping out a 6L6, opening the hum balance control and burning the fuse. Fortunately there was a spare amp because it was the opening tune.

I had a plasma TV that would frequently open its ill-sized, mini fuse. I was sure it was simply getting too hot in the fuse holder, so I replaced the fuse with a breaker that was carefully selected to have the same current and trip time specs.
