Hello im here to assist you, it sounds like the starter is sticky , remove and lubricate then bench test it. Any problems with bench test renew starter..

I changed the fuse and it started straight away. I left it running for a while the turned it off.. I went back 1hour later and again it would not start

The starter is sticking thats why the fuse is blowing..
