Sorry bout the melt down ....... the heater fuse is the 25 amp one on the left hand side ( when you are looking at it ) closest to the relay ....... you need a whole new harnes because the fuse box is not sold by itself ....... Its not hard to change takes bout an hour

You can get some in line fuse holders , the flat style I find better , and wire it into the harness , stick the wires thru the fuse box so the fuse will be under the cover and you will not have to change the harness , I never did a harness on a S130 but have done a lot of other models and it was a job , alot more than an hour and the harnesses cost in the $600-$1000 range for the models I did

Thanks guys for the repleys took the fuse block out today cleaned it up seems like the holder for the front light fuse had opened up cozing it to ark thus melting the plastic between that fuse and the heater fuse. anyways i cleaned it up squeezed the holder back together tight put the fuses back in and it worked im gonna run it for a while with the cover off to make sure its not arking and getting hot when it snows up here we can run the machines for a weeks around the clock without stopping and i went to the dealer and they wanted $1300 for a new block and harness i would of went with inlines before i spend that kinda coin.

Wow , Snowcat where is your dealership that you got a quote from located , that is the most expensive harness I have ever came across , and for such a small machine , a T190 , T250 and T300 harness didn't cost that much -------------it may never happen again to you , but I think I would put the inline fuse in cause if it does melt down again it could do alot more damage to other curcuit as I have seen the whole fuse box melt

The reason I ask what dealer is that a while back I called dealers of Bobcats from Orlando Fla to Houston Tex and was amazed how different the pricing was on some major components such as rollers , idlers and travel motors , the most expensive by far was Orlando and the cheapest was Jackson Miss , there was no consistancy , no two dealers had the same price , not even close , the range from high to low was extreme , was happy with our dealer as he was second place out of 15 dealers
