Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

This sounds like an electric clutch problem not a fuse problem. Can you tell me if you are still getting 12+ volts to the electric clutch when it disengages. Once the blades quit running keep everything on or running and check the voltage at the electric clutch connector. If you still have good voltage there then the problem has to be the clutch itself, some of these clutches are adjustable. If it has a triangle plate style clutch then you can adjust the clearance to .012 inches at the three slots on the clutch plate then try to run the machine and see what happens. If it has the round style clutch then there is no adjustment and you will need to replace the clutch itself.

Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
