I have a countertop 15 amp GFCI receptacle in my kitchen and I would like to replace the fuse for it.
It's currently on a time-delay 30 amp fuse (it's a cartridge/capsule style fuse), which is too much, since the wire going to the receptacle is 12 gauge aluminum (which as far as I know is rated for max 15 amps).
My question is, should I use a time-delay fuse or a fast acting fuse for this receptacle?
I've read that time-delay fuses are for appliances which may have large electric motors, but I'm not sure what's considered large in this context. The outlet will connect things like a toaster, kettle, blender, slow cooker, microwave, etc. This receptacle is the only one on this circuit.
