it works, does that mean we need to purchase a new fuse, can we get it at a Home Depot or someplace else? Also, what caused it to trip.

Oh no you have to get this either at appliance repair center or online. If you have a Sears near you you can order one there. At some point in time it gotten over heated thats all.

Next time you test this or a thermastat use OHMS Okay.
