I recently purchased a DoodleBug pinball machine and have done a basic tune up of it replacing the bulbs and rubbers in it and today replaced a bad coil. One thing that I'm still confused about is what fuses this machine uses.

If I examine the fuses in the fuse holder I have from top to bottom,

3AG 10A 311 32V
3AG 10A 311 32V
15 A 250V
3AG 10A 311 32V

Are those the correct fuses for this machine?

I haven't quite figured out how to read the schematics for the machine yet. This is my first pinball machine so I'm still learning the in's and out's of a EM machine. It's been really interesting learning about how it works. Reading the old post has been helpful in me learning how to fix a few problems already.

I purchased a few backup 3AG fuses but I wanted to make sure the 15 A 250V fuse what correct before ordering a backup of that.

Hey Kristina, Welcome to pinside!

Yes those fuses are correct. In particular, the fuse for the 24 volt circuits is 15 amps.

All the amps are correct. It's a bit weird that they're only rated for 32v though.

Thank you for the confirmation
