Can I use 1A 240V fuse in place of 1A 125V fuse?


Few months back my humidifire stoped working. I opened it and saw that fuse was blown. Original fuse specification was 1A 125V. I checked Fry's Electronics and Radio Shack. But could not find fuse with exact same specification. They did have 1A 240V fuse.

My question is can I replace 1A 125V fuse with 1A 240V fuse?

Yes. A search should show a thread on this that was started a couple of weeks ago.
