Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Full model number? Have you checked the charging system when unit is running? You may have voltage regulator that is blowing fuse by over voltage! I think this could have a start relay between the keyswitch and the starter solenoid. Do you have a voltmeter or test light to check the voltage from keyswitch to the starter solenoid? When you jump the solenoid to start, are you jumping the two cable terminals or going from battery cable to the switch wire on solenoid?
