My elderly mother's house still has re-wireable fuses. Nothing wrong with
that, but one of the lighting 5A circuit fuses went the other day,
fortunately while I was there.
It was a melt type failure - ie just an aging piece of fuse wire - but it
did make me wonder about the ease anyone else would have in sorting this out
for her in comparison to just being able to flip an MCB back on.
Unfortunately the electrics is complicated by it being a three phase supply
which my father split between various sections of the house in three 3 way
fuse boxes. There is inadequate height to fit a 9/10 way CU without moving
the meter which in turn might land us with Scottish Power looking for money
and possibly a new incomer, etc.
So a plug-in MCB is attractive but can you still get them ?
Is it a Wylex fuse board? If so then yes.
