What is the schematic symbol for a thermal fuse / cutout? ZedZzizz 06:09, 12 April 2007 (UTC)
How a thermal fuse senses heat?
Here is a picture of a thermal fuse showing how it is used. I was going to upload it to Wikipedia, but got directed to Wikimedia. I don't know the proper way to add it to an article here and I don't feel like trying to figure it out. http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Thermal-Fuse-CJC01.png C J Cowie (talk) 21:36, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
This is very inadequate limited coverage of the large topic of "Thermal protection". In many cases, protection would be implemented by gradually reducing function in a proportional way, rather than completely ceasing operation to protect.-220.127.116.11 (talk) 03:24, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
Potentially Misleading Pictures
In the article we have pictures of thermal fuses and thermal switches. Some of the most common thermal switches I have seen in many consumer electrical devices look much more like the thermal fuse pictures than the switch pictures. For example for many years I have blown hair dryers using them not as intended, to have the thermal switch temporarily cut power. They were almost identical to the ones pictured as thermal fuses but do reset once some time has passed to allow cool down.18.104.22.168 (talk) 05:59, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
