Where to find fuses...
In regards to my MFD not working...
Ok, I pulled the fuses and checked them out...they don't appear to be blown, but both of them look as if there is some sort of oil insde the glass. The entire box is dry as a bone, with the normal dielectric grease on the contacts, but the fuses look wet on the inside. It isn't water, because it doesn't slosh around, but I just can't tell exactly what it is. I was going to just replace them, but nobody has any ¼-amp long or 3-amp medium fuses. I checked all the local auto-parts houses to no avail, but haven't tried any hardware stores yet...where do you guys get your fuses?

Electronic supply, electronic repair, even Radio Shack should have them.
Check the fuses with an ohm-meter. If they read zero ohms, with no intermittent contact, then you can still use them.
Better to replace them with new, of course, but if they have not failed yet, you have some time to source the replacements.

There I go over-thinking things again...Radio Shack, duh! Thanks!

Even if they look good for the price of the fuse while you are in there I would just replace them with new ones anyways.
