            Comments about RadioShack 288°F (140°C) Thermal Protector Fuse:

            Just to note, this thermal fuse can be soldered if you use a clip-on heatsink between the fuse and the solder joint. However I used a thermal controlled soldering iron so I could adjust the temperature (about 30W works fine).

            Otherwise, the fuse works as intended. I used it to replace the fuse in a Euro-Pro Toaster oven purchased back in 2005. Hardest part was putting back the cover for the toaster (it bends out of shape over time).

                  Comments about RadioShack 288°F (140°C) Thermal Protector Fuse:

                  I have used these to repair blow dryers, box fans, portable heaters, etc. It seems that nearly all of our appliances contain this component and at some point it decides to fail. But heed this bit of advice: this component must be replaced using crimp connectors! The first time I replaced one of these I mistakenly soldered it into place, which (of course) overheated it and caused to fail.
                  Also, look for the number on your existing device before seeking a replacement - the number is the key to replacing it with the proper temp setting.
                  Have fun keeping those reliable appliances out of our landfills!

                  Saved a $200 dehumidifier from the trash

                        This fuse got a dead dehumidifier up and running perfectly for [$] doesn't get much better than that. Replaced fuse which is mounted on fan motor windings. Small bone to pick, as previous reviewer said, the package says 139º C, not 140 as website says. 10 amp capacity is plenty for my application. Glad I could replace the fuse rather than jumper it and give up safety protection for overheating.

                              Good to have these available for repairs, but the actual part 270-1320 is labeled 282 degF/139 degC (not 140degC as above)--close but would be nice to have the website match the part.
