The fuse just isn't there any more; it's all carbon charred dust, with black soot all inside the enclosure.Fuses typically do that because the spring clips that hold them are "sprung" this causes the clip to run hot. This oxidizes the clip material. Wh..Fuses are rated for 480 VAC. Your comment seems reasonable, even though the type of fuse block used does not have a spring. So, I would suspect tha..Actually loose connections are what generates heat. Ohmic drop dissipates power = heat.
