Simplicity does not use a fuse, but a circuit breaker, it likley will reset and engine will start again, but it trips because it has a short or overloaded circuit, tripping the circuit breaker. Look for bare wires and check the voltage regulator , by unplugging it, for short while, to see if the circuit breaker still throws. Also check the fule solenoid in the carburetor, it may be shorting out.
