I am looking for an SF152E thermal fuse. This is used in a tabletop distiller. The distiller plugs into an standard 115volt 15 amp outlet(USA). This is a 152 degree C fuse rated at 10 amps.
Here is a link to a pdf,
I am able to find the fuse on ebay but the guy is asking $8.95 plus $2.00 shipping, yeesh! I can get them from Chatham Components for $2.00 a piece but they have a 10 piece minimum policy, plus what ever shipping. It is a toss up of $10.95 for one or $20.00 plus for ten. I checked Mouser, Digikey and Jameco with no luck.
Hmm, Hosfelt has 15 amp thermal fuses but that may be too high an amperage.
This morning I replaced the dead fuse with another , I wish I wrote down the specs, but it was a 139 degree C. So far it is working ok but I would rather be prepared for when it goes again. I believe the fuse failed initially because the distiller gets plugged and unplugged, a spike drooping the fuse until failure or just plain old age got it.
Thanks for any help, Thor
