The bearings could be going bad the will create a large load that will blow fuses i would lubricate them first and look into getting new ones from a place like motion industries or some kind of bearing supply house

98 Dodge Caravan keeps blowing the wiper fuse. Works for a few seconds then blows.

check for bare wires grounding out , wiper motor failure or wiper shafts seizing up and overloading the motor
using a bigger fuse will only result in the wiring harness burning out and possible fire in the car

2003 bick lesabre blower not working, changed both blower and resistor and fuses. Worked for a few days then quit.

Did you carefully clean out all the debris from the heater box? Did your new blower come with a new fan unit, or re-use the old one? Can you hear the motor run but not blow? These fans are fragile when old, and sometime break right where they attach, thus no blow. If not running, check for current at motor, then resistor, then fuse. Only thing left is the switch.

Honda metropolitan 05 Met II blowing 15 amp fuse

Did the scooter start OK when you first started it after bringing it out of storage, or did you have to use the kick starter? Maybe the battery is faulty and is pulling a lot of power.
Check the charge rate with an ammeter (use a multimeter that can measure 20 Amps DC) and see if the current exceeds the 15A rating of the fuse. If it does, replace the battery.

Husqvarna 2246LS blows fuse 5 to 30 secounds after running, not if the regulator or stator is disconnected.

Since it only blows the fuses while running and it doesn't do it with the regulator and stator disconnected I would suspect the battery of having a shorted cell or two, some problem with the starter solenoid, or a pinched wire.
Here is copy of the OM with the circuit diagram in it.

Why is our SPE150 KH is blowing fuses, gets started runs awhile then it blows a fuse. does any one have any ideas?

Have you checked if anything is wrapped around the blade shaft? Anything that gets in there and causes the motor shaft to slow down will cause the motor to draw more current and trip a breaker. Does the unit have an overheat sensor on the motor (may are built in..check the manual) If the cooling slots are too dirty the overheat sensor shuts down the motor to keep it from burning itself out.

Fuses only fail if there is high current. Either the motor has a serious short or the motor circuit has a relatively high resistance short causing the high current. Check the motor windings , equipment has to be de-energized and compare the readings to normal for that motor. Typical readings should be about the same for a same size motor. Another possibility is the start winding (button controlled) is not disengaging. This could be as simple as the push button to start the motor is cloed all the time or does not become disconnected after the button is let go of. Once damaged these buttons tend to "weld" closed so the high current of the start winding is always ON and not OFF after the push to start button is released.

Engine fan fuse blows every few days2001 volvo s40

Fuses are there for a reason, if they keep blowing it stands a chance your fan motor is on the fritz and overloading the fuse so it pops. Make sure the tempreture sensor is working ok and not keeping the fan running when it should be turning off.

Fuse keeps blowing

The amplifier probably has shorted output transistors. If the amp only blows the fuse after remote voltage is applied, the damage may be minor. They generally blow two transistors. Sometimes that's all that needs to be replaced.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
