You need a cheap volt meter to check wire lugs on both ends of the fuse to ground. And all the way back to where you have power if needed.

I have tried that before and got a good reading at the box but still not enough getting to the tool for it to work. Not uncommon to get a false reading with a meter and when that happens it can get you to the point of pulling your hair out. BTDT to many times and when the Captain of the ship is yelling he want such and such fixed that does not help either also BTDT

Put 1 test lead to the top of the fuse and the other lead to the bottom of the fuse. If the fuse is blown you will get a reading, provided there is a load on the line, no matter how small. If there is no reading the fuse is good.

Yeppers, there shouldnt be much of any voltage drop across an almost dead short circuit...

I did miss the word FUSE but as I said seen more then once you get what looks good as in 120 volt on one leg but find that it is not a true volt reading and it reads good but no amps behind that reading

What I am talking about is the fact that a meter can sometimes see voltage say at the area of a box where the wires hook up but in fact not have true power there due to just enough of a connection to read voltage on a meter but not have any real current value to do work with say a motor

My son lost one leg of feed from transformer pole and when we tested power panel my digital vm showed 120v seperately on both sides, but no 240v across. chased it around for a while with the transient voltage on the bad let, but nothing on 240 v would work, Went and looked at the transformer and could see one leg was broken off caused by hi winds (gusts to 60). Power co had it fixed in 1.5 hrs
