Right. It`s funny here, too. I mean in Argentina we still call it the fusebox, and they have almost disappeared and have been replaced by circuit breakers, too.JamesM said:The fuse is located in a central fusebox somewhere. The light bulb has a little metal coil in it called the filament which breaks from the intense heat. The two problems are different.
It's funny... people my age will often still call it the fusebox when fuses have long since been replaced by circuit breakers in most U.S. homes.
