Hello and thanks for donating

The fuse can blow due to a system short, a metallic object getting into the outlet and shorting the terminals together or a device being used which exceeds the Amp rating of the fuse. Most likely you have a short on the circuit which is why the fuse blows instantly. The wiring of that particular fuses circuit will need carefully inspected/tested.
