Where to buy thermal fuse?

    I have a steam mop that has a bad thermal fuse

    192 degree C

    Frys and radio shack sell thermal fuse for $1 to $2, unfortunately they are
    all lower temperature rated. I could mail order it, but it's silly to mail
    order a $1 part and pay $5 shipping.

    What other local stores are likely to carry thermal fuse?

    The fuse is crimped to the other wires. Once I have the replacement, do I
    have to crimp it, or can I solder it? I already have soldering iron but
    don't have crimping tools.

    I have soldered thermal fuses before and lower temp than that, but you need
    freezer spray on the bulge, leave the leads long with enough room for
    heatsinking clamps/forceps or the like, in between bulge and solder point.
    For 10 amps you need a reliable crimping system

    Radio Shack 270-1321 is a 228C. If you can't find the right fuse, stick
    in a bigger one, I say.

    Here you go. $.98 for quantity one.

    They only have 1330 in stock. Specify USPS First Class Mail for
    shipping. It'll cost about $2.00 for shipping and will be in your
    hands in two days.
