    what is the typical cutoff temperature of the thermal fuse inside a hair
    dryer?

    the label on it has been partially burned off and is unreadable

    I guess the fuse blew because I used it inside my blankets (to quickly warm
    the bed).

    What temperature do you think a human/ human hair can stand ?

    Well the fuse is there for safety purposes and not to regulate the temp.
    Hard to say what the temp is inside on the highest heat setting where the
    fuse is located. I suppose the air temp at the nozzle is around 150F but
    again who knows what it is inside.

    I would just go to Radio Shack, see what they had, and pick whichever
    one seems reasonable. Assuming they still sell them, which they
    probably don't.

    If it`s a microtemp, I understand that they are colour coded by the
    seal. It`s been a few years since I bothered repairing domestic
    appliances, so I dont recall what the colours denote.
