    Wasn't sure where to post this, but here goes.

    I had bought a used Chef Choice (Edgecraft) Model 610 meat slicer off of eBay at a good price.  But, no manual came with it.

    So I called Chef Choice (800-342-3255) and talked with Customer Service rep and they emailed one out same day.

    As I talked with the gal, she said that they can sell replacement parts direct and mentioned fuses.  I asked what kind it took and she said that they were a "special" fuse and she'd send me two at no charge!  Good to know they can get you fixed up with replacement parts too!

    Wow, talk about service!  I'm impressed!  Two thumbs up!  [​IMG]   [​IMG]
     
  2. Thanks for the post. Now days it is hard to find good customer service. Glad to hear it still exist. 

    Happy smoken.

  3. Glad things worked out for you.  When that "special" fuse comes in , please take a couple of pictures so we can see what a "special" fuse looks like.[​IMG]

    Yeah, she was a sweet young thang, so it'll be interesting to see what a "special" fuse looks like.

    Got the fuses quickly, within 5 days.  I was impressed!

    The fuse is 3/4" long, Says it is a JET 51S brand (?) with the following specs:  250v 1.25A.  The "filament" inside has two tiny balls of mat'l about 1/4" apart visible.  Sorry, I'm not an electrician, and evidently not much of a close up photographer, either.


    Best photo I could get, but evidently they really want you to use this fuse.

    I did check my reference chart to see if I had anything close to this, just in case:


    Sorry, couldn't resist...... [​IMG]

    What makes the fuse special is that it is a "Slow Blow" fuse.  It will not pop during average stress on your slicer, such as slicing thicker, but it will blow when excessive current draw, such as bogging down the slicer and overheating the motor.
