Could anyone tell me what the red electronic component might be?
It's a slow blow micro fuse 3Amp @ 250v one time fuse.
Looks like a 1/4 watt resistor, beige body with 1 brown stripe in the center of the body

BTW, Thanks for the best answer.
Presuming you know the item in your possession.
All I know when searching the TR5® > I read ... Slow-Blow ..... But I was tired and could have scanned the article badly :-(
It did make sense to me that a fuse that needs soldering to change would be less annoying protection if it was not a hair trigger.
I know I would never put such a fuse in any of my creations !
