    My wife and kids are down in a country house here in Ireland (I will join them tomorrow)

    They seemed to have blown a fuse, but they can't find a breaker box.

    This is on the wall

    I know those are fuses, but how does one reset these? If i remember correctly, they actually have to be screwed out and a new one back in?

    Does this seem odd? Should there definitely be a breaker box somewhere?

    Tell them to take a shower and then immediately stick their fingers in every hole they can find

    Unscrew the blown fuse and replace with a new fuse of the same rating.

    Or if you have a sense of adventure, remove the blown fuse and replace with a coin of the same size and wait for the fun to start.

    ....there should be a rating on there that she can read but thats here in america. to find the one thats blown look inside the center of it for a burnt spot or sometimes you can see the metal strip is broken. very important that you use the same amp fuse and then try to find out why it blew out like too many things plugged in one circuit. no breaker box shown there probably because the place is old construction.
