    unlikely to be switch pump or short on wiring would be most likely, try pulling wire off pump to eliminate faulty pump that would be a good start:thumb:

    as Mick said...its a process of elimination.

    if the fuse blows immediately it could be a trapped/shorted wire....dead short.

    if it last a second or two then blows, then it could be the pump has seized....overload

    Are you sure 5A is the correct rated fuse. Mine has 10A fuse and can draw 4A+ on startup.
