I need a fuse for Central Pneumatic Model 97080 / unable locate replacement glass fuse / are they available?
The fuse on my 3 gal hot dog CP compressor blew and I am finding difficult to locate a replacement. It is a 3amp 250V miniature fuse (slow blow)
I’m not sure why you are having a problem finding this fuse for your Central Pneumatic air compressor.
A slow blow fuse is a slow blow fuse, and when I Googled “buy a 250V 3A slow blow fuse” I found a number of sources.
It doesn’t matter to the compressor where you buy the fuse as long as it’s the same rating and fits the fuse holder.
97080 fuse, not as easy as you think!
You would think it would be an easy find and trust me I have been to Auto parts, hardware,an electrical specialty store and yes Google. Everything ends up too big or fast blow. I was just throwing this out there to see if anyone else has gone through this and had any specific luck finding a source to replace them.
Does this one not suit?
If not, publish the dimensions of your existing fuse, please.
Don’t buy Central Pneumatic – no parts including fuses
This is my second air compressor bought from Harbor Freight Tools. The first one, the gauge started to leak. I called about replacement parts and was told it was on back order and they would contact me when it was available. Months went by, the ending result, they changed it from back order to not available. Finally, I used silicone to seal, thankfully, it worked.
Then the regulator valve took a poop. I, of course, called the company, who told me straight up, they did not have part and it was discontinued. I tried to locate on internet but eventually it became more of a problem than its worth.
I bought the 97080. The fuse blew and they do not stock, no one stocks and the company says find it on line. I have not been successful yet. I would just say not to buy their products. Stick with tried and true companies.
