The best way to identify the fuse is by the part number. Usually there is a manufacturer name, the amperes and voltage, and the type or speed of the fuse. Any markings on the fuse, the amps, volts, speed, and size, will help in the identification. We can also try to identify it by the description: measure the size of the fuse in mm or inches (both diameter and length), the amps, the volts, any letters or numbers on the fuse, any pictures on the fuse. You can email or fax a picture of the fuse to us and we can see if you have enough information to identify it.
Different companies manufacture identical fuses. If you call with a part number and we can offer you that part or another brand that may be in stock or less expensive we may offer that to you. You may need a large quantity that we can supply in a variety of brands. Also, if the part you are looking for is obsolete or may have a long lead time, we may offer you an equivalent that may be in stock or that will not take as long to order in for you. Another reason why we may offer you a cross is that you need the fuse immediately and we may have the same fuse in a different brand sitting in our warehouse that we can supply to you right away. We will always make you aware of the new part number and manufacturer if we cross your fuse. You can also tell us that “no cross” will be acceptable and then we will only quote you on the fuse you ask for.
For items shipping from our warehouse in Ohio the cut off time is 4:00PM ET. The cut off time varies when shipping from other facilities. It is best to call us if you need an item shipped the same day and we will advise if it is possible. Normally in stock items ship the same day.
If the item is in stock and is received before 4:00PM ET it will ship the same day. If it is shipping from an alternate location there is no guarantee the order will ship the same day. If there are discrepancies on pricing or other issues with your order there is no guarantee the order will ship the same day. If you have an emergency please call us to discuss your order.

Please contact a customer service representative. Our policy is that you must obtain an RMA before any return. We may charge a restocking fee, non-stock items may be non-returnable, and some items may not be returnable. Normally after 30 days no item may be returned. If we issue you an RMA you are responsible to pay the freight and ship the package back to us. At the time we receive the return we will inspect the merchandise returned and decide if it is in good condition. At that time a credit will be issued. If an item is damaged in shipping no credit will be issued. Please note: all Made to Order items are Non-Returnable.
