If your supplying 240 vac to a 208 vac element it will work but shorten the life of it.Goto 3wire.com and register,they should have a 208vac element.The wild leg could also be an issue but if you get a 208 vac element it shouldnt hurt it that much.Why you would be getting a reading of 240 vac on l1-l2-l1-l3-l2-l3 is strange.Let me know.

Use a series 100 watt lamp in the hot side of the power to allow testing wothout popping the fuse... the lamp will limit the current.
If there was a utility power "incident", report that to your power company as a possible damage claim before doing anything.

Well is the new fuse still good or out again. if its good, then you probably fried the main board on the amplifier. These computer speakers do not handel big power serge's.

A fuse is rated for it's current carrying capacity so yes you can use a 240 volt 5 Amp fuse in a 12 Volt circuit.
The Voltage is given to indicate the insulation of the fuse, i.e. if you used a 12 volt fuse in a 240 Volt circuit it may arc and therefore is not suitable. You can always use a fuse with a higher voltage rating in a lower voltage rated circuit.
A 5 Amp fuse will carry 5 Amps indefinately and will only blow at 2 or three times it's rated current.

If you are asking how to wire up a receptacle to run a 240 volt pump, you need to have a box on the roof first of all. You will need a 20 amp double pole breaker for this. You will need to pull 2- hot wires from the breaker box, 1- neutral, and a bare ground wire. Size of wire would be # 12 THHN stranded wire. A total of 4 wires. This would be to code. Or, buy enough Romex wire, #12 with ground wire and red, black, and white in side, tie into the breaker that way. Red and black will be your hot wires to pump, if it has no neutral you can use both the white and bare to ground, very easy to do.I hope this is what you wanted to know.
