Default Fender Amp Can Fuse?

Howdy,
Has anyone replaced the fuse on an Amp Can and remember the ampage? It does not appear on the fuse...most frustrating...
Any Help Appreciated,

Default from the schematic

"F1 is a narrowed trace in the PCB copper. should trace be blown, replace with 30 AWG bus bar."

here is the schematic PDF also:

Default Dumb Down Here

Thanks Mr Q...
...but evidently I need this dumbed down a couple notches. I did my net research before posting and found that schematic...more research found the symbol for fuse...more research found out that AWG is acronymonious for American Wire Gauge...now I presume there must be formula to figure the ampage that can run through a given gauge of wire but heck if I can find it...I got a favourite tech nerd in a dusty electronic parts place, desperate for company who I know can help...but it is cold out...
Anyway...Thanks Again

hey you know more than I do then.
I studied Electronic Engineering at Uni before becoming a clown, and had no idea what AWG bus bar meant either...

Exclamation ...

...just in case anyone comes across this thread searching for the knowing...it is a 5mmx20mm fast blow 4 amp fuse...and it wasn't blown but the little springs in the fuse holder had compressed so much they were no longer making a strong enough contact......stretched them out and amp can is alive again...
