Any ideas on what replacement fuse to use?
Does this fuse go into an in-line fuse holder?
If so and if you are unable to find the right 30mm length fuse, one, then as long as the amperage rating is the same for the 20mm one you can find, or pretty close to the same rating, then couldn't you just use a sawn- off bit of 5mm bolt x 10mm long to make up the difference between a 30mm length and a 20mm length?
Just a thought, Its the kind of mickey mouse fix I would likely try! Not teh best solution but should work ok!
