murphy pullout fuse block contains fuses of different amperages
Hello and thanks in advance...
Let me start out by saying that I am no electrician. I am handy but will not be making adjustments to my fuse/ breaker panel without having a professional out to the house. That said, I'd love some opinions on my situation.
My house has an older fuse panel with two pullout fuse blocks. In 8 years I have never had a problem with these fuses burning out, but lately we have been encountering a situation where all of the lights and appliances running through one of the blocks will get partial power. (diagnosed by dim lighting and slowly running electric motors on plugged appliances) The fix seems to be replacing one of the cartridge fuses inside one of the blocks. On pulling those things out though, I discovered that one of the blocks contains two non-40 amp fuses and the other contains a non-40 and a non-60. shouldn't both of the fuses in the block be the same? If so, how can I determine which fuse is correct?
