Is the fuse still good? If it blew right away then that would indicate a short in your circuit.
If the fuse is still good and the socket doesn't work, then it could mean that you have an open circuit (disconnected circuit) or it could mean that you are not making good contact with whatever you are plugging in.
To test the latter, use a multimeter and check the connections in the socket to see if you are getting voltage. If you are, then you have a connection problem. If not, then it is likely you have an open circuit. Then it is "trace the wires" time.
