Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! If you unplug the clutch ,does the fuse blow? If not, the clutch may be shorted. Does the clutch blow the fuse as soon as you turn it on? If so, you likely need a new clutch, but you could try adjusting clutch, can be adjusted to help the amp pull, by moving the three self locking nuts in, to move the magnet closer to the armature. I may help. Clutch should only draw 5 amps or less!
