According to HFT customer service: “Unfortunately, the replacement part you’re requesting for #97080 3G Oilless Hot Dog Compressor is not available and cannot be ordered separately from our manufacturer.
Harbor Freight goes on to say “here is the specifications requested:
The fuses are not standard size glass and are not available locally or online. We recommend for the fuse holder to be replaced with a standard size fuse, chassis mount fuse holder. FUSE: 250V – 3A”
Well, that means modifying the case because a regular AGC style holder won’t fit there. 13 vs 15mm hole required.
The fuse is a gdc-3.
I’m sure this fits the 97080, and probably the other 1/3 HP models.
You might also consider using a 4a breaker as on the 61615, but I can’t promise that one will fit or if it’s even available from HFT.
What size are they?
Diameter and length in mm
As shown in the pix:
5 x 20mm
If you google 5×20 3a slow blow you’ll find at least three sources, including Buss GDC-3.
New comment? New question? Please add it here along with photos to help others help you with your compressor and equipment problem!
The inside diameter of the fuse holder cap is 6mm. I didn’t have the old fuse to measure, because somebody had replaced it with a wad of aluminum foil 🙂 I will try the GDC-3. Thank you!
We found them overseas through Aliexpress – 10 for $1 30. Just took 45 days to get them ?
