I have not had any problems after changing the internal voltage tap and my FCB1010 is fully functional for the last four years.

A local electrician noted the step up transformers do not alter the operating frequency - 50hz at 240V, vs 60hz at 120V. Does the present an issue if the internal voltage is switched down to 120?
Yep, it looks like I was right. As I said, by decreasing the voltage by 1/2 you double the value of the fuse rating. At 240 the rating is 50mA and at 120 the rating is 100mA. Simple electronics math. to maintain the same poer rating P=I*E where P = Power or Wats, I is Amps and E is Voltage
