Melted 25amp fuse....

So i replaced my blower/rear hatch fuse the other day, the previous fuse having been sacrificed to slot #6 and the Evil fuse eating AC gods.

A few hours later I was driving along basking in the moist antifreeze laden air coming from the few vents that work and my blower started working intermittently and then quit.

I checked the fuse and found that while the metal part was still intact and almost in place, the plastic section was nowhere to be seen. It was later found under the mat with both ends melted off.... The second fuse did the same....

Must be a new fuse design whereby the plastic melts before the metal does....

Has this happened to anyone else? I took the fuses back and got a refund. I'm buying a fire extinguisher today... Just in case...
