Ok...I blew a fuse the other day on my 2 channel/triple rectifier. The fuse that was in it was a 3.5A/250v SB, the owner's manual says 4A/250V ...but (plot twist) - the markings on the back of the cab around the fuse holder says 3A on top and 6.25A SB on the bottom. Given the owner's manual for a 2 channel triple rec, I would have expected it to say 4A on top and 2A SB on the bottom. So...2 questions: what's the story with my amp being different and what fuse should I put in it? A 6.25A SB/250V? Thanks for any help you can offer and please pardon my idiocy if this is a silly question!

A 120V amp is a 4A Slow Blow
A 240V amp is a 2A Slow Blow

Can you post a pic of the area you are talking about?

The older 2 channel triples take a 6.25 amp SB fuse, the newer rev g triples are 4 amp.

I have 2 of the older rev f triples.

I clearly see 6.25 A listed below the fuse holder, that is the correct fuse rating.

I don't see the 3A marking above it that you mention tho ......

Sorry so long in responding...I'm not sure how to upload an image...Anyhow mine seems consistent with what the other feedback on older ones. Now why was there a 3A fuse in there, I wonder? Thanks anyhow!

I posted the picture.
Yes, 250V fuse.
The 3A fuse is there because someone put it there.
