Maybe try a larger amperage fuse and if it blows, you may have a short somewhere and not have a quick fix. Try resetting breakers in converter??

You need to be carefull trying the larger fuse, if you go too big the fuse may hold but the result could be melted wires or even a fire. I would start by checking for a short and then turn off as many breakers as possible to see if the short will clear, if it does then you can turn them back on a few at a time to isolate the problem. If that doesn't work then you need to to check at the furnace end of your wire, the problem may be in the furnace itself. Good luck.
