Flipper Fair wants a 7.5 amp 115v line fuse. Best I can find is 7.5 amp 32 v, in packages of more than I need.

What it has now is 10 amp at, I think, 32 v. The machine works. The fuse comes right off the transformer, in line with the power switch (coin drop) and anti cheating switches. The machine is using the low power lug on the transformer, but I may want to up to the high power mode once I get the game working.

What is the modern rated fuse that will work and be safe?

Small fuses could blow and arc over if voltage is high enough to jump gap . Fuses do have voltage rating just for that reason .

I'd find a higher voltage 7.5 amp fuse.

Pinball Life carries appropriate fuses. It’s unlikely you need 7 1/2 amp.

vid1900 suggests a 4 amp: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/replacing-line-cords-plugs-wall-sockets-vids-guide#post-1945119

Why is it unlikely I need what the schematic and fuse holder label say?

Hey there! Got a moment?
