Old fuse boxes with degraded/ aged/ corroded "socket" metal contact surfaces WILL do that , especially during prolonged HIGH CURRENT DRAW JUST UNDER AMP RATING . For a "short' or superhigh overcurrent situation simply IMMEDIATELY blows a fuse - doesn't give any time to do the meltdown act :eek: Any poor contact is what develops heat directly proportionate to AMPS & TIME.
