Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Unplug the electric clutch , then flip on the switch and see if the fuse blows. If not, check the clutch for a short. See if either of the wires in the clutch connection is showing a connection to the clutch itself. If it does, the clutch is shorted and needs to be replaced. You need a volt/ohmmeter to check the clutch
