You can use a fuse which is rated 110, 115, 120, 125V; these all mean the same thing in North American wiring.

Yes, it has to be four amps. Check electronic repair shops. This is the type of item they would have in stock and probably be willing to sell pretty cheap.

Any fuse that is rated to safely carry 250 volts can be used in a 120 volt circuit as long as it will fit in the fuseholder. The 250 volt rating means that the fuse cansafely handle up to 250 volts. The fuse is an overcurrent device, meaning it is made to protect against too many amps.

This fuse should work just fine for you.
