Quoted from CharlesZ:

Thanks for all of the input. Unfortunately changing those two fuses to a more standard 1/8 amp 250 V fuse did not change the problem. I measured the fuses with the resistors at approximately 30 ohms each. The ones I replaced them with were 11 ohms so there is some difference there but not enough to make a difference in my machine.
[quoted image]

Top fuses are typical Littelfuse brand 0313.125 fuses (slow, 1/8Amp). They control the 'cold' resistance with these and are set at 30 ohms for the 1/8 amp fuse, these tend to handle vibration a bit better. So the top ones are fine.
Lower two fuses are typical of Bussman or Belfuse (both with typical cold resistance of about 12 ohms).
Any of these would be fine.

The MDQ's (Dual element fuses) would also work. The Dual elements provide fast short circuit protection and better survival ability for temporary overloads - but these tend to cost considerably more.

The fuses with the three solder 'dots' are typical of cheap Chinese fuses, I avoid those.
