Well, here i am again, the thermal fuse on my tv630 has blown again. The dryer is about 5 years old and this is the 3rd time its gone. I'm fed up paying £30-£40 for replacement heaters when the fuse is only about 50p.
ok, so i have a background in electronics so i intend to replace the fuse with one of these parts I have found on Farnells web site....

physically, its almost a direct replacement for the microtemp device fitted as standard.
I have read conflicting advice re the opening temperature of the thermal fuse. Some posts put it at 152c whilst the microtemp unit itself is maked 206c.
Which is correct 152 or 206 ?
As I understand it the fuse will 'blow' at the indicated temperature, is this correct ? secondly, the replacement part from farnell, which is rated at 15a and 'blows' at 190c should be as near as damn it, a suitable replacement. ?
Thanks for the help
