In-line fuses are not necessairly evil but have to be the right kind and rated for the load - motor starting, in this case. A fan that pulls 10 amps is going to need at least a 20 amp slow blow fuse to survive. Your generic SAE20 likely won't cut it for that application.
BTW, fusable link in that application really is a pretty good idea.
