Since the cap is broken, it sounds like you will need to replace the 10A Screw Cap Fuse Holder. You can try to google it or search on Amazon.

You want something similar to this. Make sure you order one that takes a 1/4" x 1 1/4" glass tube fuse, and don't forget to buy a fuse that will fit that holder.
10A Screw Cap AGC Fuse Holder

The 10A Screw Cap Fuse Holder is easy to remove and install, especially since you got the cover off.
  • First take a picture of the area you will be working on. This can be view for reference while you are reassembling the holder.
  • Next unplug the wires going to the holder; and note which wire goes to each terminal.
  • There is a nut holding the fuse holder to the generator. Unscrew that nut and remove that nut - you may find that a pair of pliers work best, but a wrench may fit in there. Once the nut is loosen, it can be easily turned by hand.
  • Once the nut is off, push the holder outward. Reverse the procedure to reinstall.
