I would try tracing the entire wiring to see if any are exposed and are touching metal.

Try checking the battery - make sure it is not under rated - over rated and be sure the starter it's self isn't drawing too much amperage.
the battery may need replacing and for a temp fix - put in a larger fuse - say 50 amp.

Check for a wire that has a bare spot on it rubbing the body of this mower. The vibration the engine makes shakes the wiring so it must have a bare spot somewhere under the seat or towards the engine

My Briggs and Stratton did the same. Look under the hood along the wiring harness for a 20 amp automotive type plug in fuse. Mine was blown, but fuses blow for a reason. One of my headlight connections came loose and shorted to ground. If yours has that fuse look for a short.

KEEPS BLOWING FUSE ON CRAFTMAN 19.5 BRIGGS, WHEN TURN KEY TO START


In my experience, and i have a good bit, when you turn the key and it always blows the fuse, the magnets under the flywheel are in direct contact with the stator (alternator). Both will need to be replaced...sorry
