If you have an inverter at home you will know how common a blown fuse can be. It can be excruciatingly frustrating as well. You either try to fix the problem yourself or call up the customer service for assistance; only to realize that the service guy takes ages to show up at your house while you and your family sit in darkness.
What causes a fuse to blow?
Blown fuse in inverters is usually caused by reverse polarity or a short-circuit within the appliance or the equipment being operated.
When this happens you have to call up the customer service for assistance or undertake the following measures yourself:
- Disconnect the appliance or inverter immediately
- Find the source of the problem, and repair it.
- Install a new fuse
Here’s an easy solution
How would you feel if you have an inverter that has a fuse that can be reset with the push of a button?
Su-Kam’s Falcon+ is an inverter that comes with a resettable fuse which is blown in case of a short circuit. In Falcon plus, there is a mains fuse and a resettable fuse. The resettable fuse blows when there is an overload or a short circuit. The mains fuse on the other hand blows only during extreme conditions.
How this works?
Whenever there is a short circuit or overload the resettable fuse blows and simultaneously the ‘mains fuse on’ indication on the front screen starts glowing. This alerts you that the fuse has blown.
Now all you have to do is gradually decrease the load and then push the fuse inwards. Your system is now up and running!

You don’t have to change the wiring or replace the fuse. Just push the fuse in and your life is smooth again.
