# What are Blown Fuses?

Fuses are safety devices installed in electrical systems to protect wires from overloads or short circuits. A blown fuse indicates:

– **Too many appliances/devices drawing power** on a single circuit, overloading the fuse’s capacity.

– **Worn or faulty electrical equipment** can draw excess current blowing the fuse, like a appliance motor or switch.

– **Accidental crossings** of electrical wires causing an overload short.

– **Loose connections** between terminals and the fuse itself hinders normal power flow.

– **Pre-existing wire damage** inside walls.

Blown fuses should be replaced with properly rated replacements only after determining and addressing the root overloading cause. left unaddressed, fuses may continue blowing.
