Blade Fuse Disconnect

Mike Lamb

Recommended Posts

Yes, a disconnect is required as a rule, but there may be one hidden closer to the source?

Does pulling the inner door out and down maybe open the circuit? I can't see the diagram very well. But it looks like it may be a disconnect as well as a door.

10KA is a fuse rating, but not the size, and many different sizes of fuses come in green, so no help there.

The nuts and bolts are from where?

The screws and nuts are there 'cuz someone tampered with it. The cover and pull block were one unit. When that cover/pull block is in place the two blades on the pull block engage the contacts circled in the photo below. Someone unscrewed those screws and the nuts fell inside. They're lucky they didn't short something out and cause an arc flash.
