Default fuse blowing when lid opens

I had bypassed the lid switch, The check switch mechanically failed and was replaced . When I open lid th fuse blows immediately 4x. I was able to complete a wash by not opening lid but at end the fuse blew.
Why is the fuse failing?
what is the purpose of the check switch? I have a copy of a generic schematic so a brief explanation would be helpful.

thanks, ron

If you bypass one switch, the fuse will blow.

Just replace the switch you have bypassed and the fuse blowing should cease.
