Nor have I, actually. Annother curious one is the fuse in the PSU of a
Canon SX Laser printer (HP Laserjet 2, etc). It's in fuse clips at one
end of the PSU board, and is accessible without removing the metal case
from the PSU. Canon don't supply any parts for the internals of the PSU
(IIRC even the case is not available separtely), there's no PSU
schemmatic in the official service manual. But the fuse is a listed
spare part. Again, I've never seen it blow.

I don't thionk I've ever seen the fuse in the mains side of an SMPSU blow
unless there were other faults in the PSU.
