Is It a Problem if You Put a Fuse in Your Starter Circuit?


Love your YouTube videos - thank you!  I was wondering if it is a problem if you put a fuse in your starter circuit?


Definitely could be, if the fuse is wrongly sized. Starters have large inrush of current and sometimes that can cause nuisance tripping of the fuse. The ABYC code states that you don't need to fuse the starter as long as great care is taken to make sure you don't have a accidental short.
