Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Need your model number to be sure, but the snapper looks to use a circuit breaker not a fuse. So it may start in the AM. As soon as the circuit breaker cools, it should reset. But you could have a short, causing the breaker to trip. Look at the clutch wires again and the wires associated to it, and look for bare or damaged wires that could cause a short. I doubt the clutch is damaged.
