Fuses, like circuit breakers, work on a simple principle, Each is designed to handle a specified amount of current. When the current exceeds that amount, a metal linkage in the fuse melts: The current stops flowing before the overloaded wires can heat up. A fuse, then, is a safety device, and you should never try to circumvent it.
