My Central Pneumatic compressor (60637) blew a fuse.
It’s a 3 amp and I think it’s a slo blo but I don’t know the type (littelfuse 312,314 etc. Can you help?
What is the fuse size and number for a 60637 air compressor?
Fuse type for 60637
Turns out that’s a 5x20mm 3A slow blow.
Buss calls it a GDC-3.
Littlfuse calls it 0239003.vxp
NTE calls it 74-5SG3A
You will not find these at auto stores, but they are readily available at decent electronics parts stores – I got some yesterday and tried it in HFT store.
BTW, you should find these for under a dollar – but I’ve seen them priced much higher.
I recently bought the 60637 model and it ran perfectly for one use then a few days later it blows a fuse

My Central Pneumatic portatble air compressor was instantly blowing the 3 amp fuse when turned on . After further investigation I found one of the diodes on the bridge rectifier was absolutely shorted out. I replaced the bridge rectifier and the fuse, it’s now running like a champ. Don’t try this fix unless you have technical skills and training.
The motor runs on DC!? Interesting.
I bought the pancake compressor as well and it did nothing, but blow fuses and Harbor Freight refused to hear my story! I never got one use out of it!
