My Kitchenaid Double (KEBS208SSS04) oven blew a fuse after self cleaning and has no continuity. The OEM replacement is not avaiblable anywhere around me in the Toronto area. (I could order online from the US but will take some time) The part is WP89304452 and it is a less common fuse for these types of ovens rated at 250V 10A and 105C. I wanted to know if it is a good or bad idea to use a different non-oem fuse with the same specs/rating which is both available and a lot cheaper. In addition, I believe the cheaper is auto resettable. Just want to do the right repair but want to know if using this other fuse is a bad idea. I have attached pictures of the two different fuses. Thanks

Hi,

Resettable is a waste for me....once it trips it will loose some of it's value.
As long as the specs and mounting is the same, can't see why not try it.
