Glass Fuses

So I traced a few problems back to the glass fuse panel (obv), cleaned the connections, and set new fuses. Nothing. Went to try and roll the fuse around a bit and found that when I apply pressure and push it inwards a bid, the fan started working! Obviously, switching to blades is the right move; however, does anyone have a temporary fix for maintaining that connection? Is there any way to manipulate the clips to set the fuse in where it needs to be? Thanks so much. Dave

Get a fibreglass contact cleaner pen from Tandy or any electrics shop or rap some very fine emery cloth around the fuse and give a couple of turns. More likely the holder is green dirty.

Edward Teach is the Blackbeard, and is a member of the Birmabright Brotherhood.

Still looking for that place where I can carry a paddle and get asked what's that.

Carefully bend the spring clips closer together.

You could try wrapping the ends of the fuse with foil or wire but that has mixed results.
