There are only a couple of thins that can blow the fuse - the fan and the pump. Are you able to disconnect them safely and see if the fuse holds?

Sorry for the delay, yes I have disconnected them both separately and it seems to be the pump. The connections on the capacitor within the pump were slack so I re-terminated them.
It now seems like everything is running properly apart from the ignitor which is striking but not firing up?

Are you able clean the electrode to create a hotter spark?
