Power Issue

We needed to replace our bathroom switch, it is a rocker switch with plug in, as the rocker was broken.
Hubby pulled the fuse that sent power to this switch and plug.
He installed the new switch.
He went and put the fuse back in and no power. Light or plug in.
He checked with a fuse we knew worked and still nothing.

Thoughts?

It worked before. It doesn't work after he worked on it. He connected something wrong or not tight enough.

He disturbed something. remove the new switch and make sure it was wired correctly. White or neutral all wired together and capped. Black connected to the switch.

Could be two issues.
Could be a fault in his wiring.
Could be an issue with the fuse install. Some fuses have plastic spacer devices in the bottom to prevent the wrong fuse from being installed. If the device shifted or the wrong fuse was used then the entire circuit would remain dead. Does any portion of the circuit came on when the fuse is replaced?

You are saying fuse so I assume you have actual screw in fuses and not breakers.
