Why might a multimeter ask for the "wrong" sizes of fuses?
On the front of my Fluke 87 multimeter, the two probe ports for amperage are labeled as fused at 10A (max) and 400mA (max). When opening the multimeter to check the fuses (both are burned out), however, the fuses are different -- 15A and 1A, respectively. Their places on the PCB are even labeled as 15A and 1A fuses.
Further, while looking up replacement fuses on Amazon's site, I see a number of reviews of people with Fluke 87's recommending an 11A fuse.
Is there some latitude with fuse selection, where the size of fuse you pick correlates with your favorite number of the day... or something?
