Fuses and Residual-Current Device
Fuses and in newer houses,
residual-current devices make sure electronic devices work safely. Fuses react
to overcharge and they cut out the power. Fuses and the residual-current device
are often located in the fuse board that is in the entrance of the apartment.
We recommend you to check the condition of the device that is being used when a
fuse burns out.

When a plug fuse is blown, the "dot" in the bottom of the fuse loosens. Before changing the fuses remember to switch off the current. You have to replace the blown fuse with a new one with the same "dot" colour. You can buy these plug fuses from ordinary grocery stores. If the fuse is blowing again check that no faulty appliances are plugged in.
