I have the same problem, and I found the manual reset inside the unit. Turn the power off, and unplug the unit. Remove the outer cover of the unit ( inside cover ) , and remove the 2 screws holding the " wire mesh " in the front of the cover. Pull the wire mesh up and out of the way, then carefully pull out the heating element.
On the heating element, where the wires are connected, there is a manual reset button... Push the button in, till it resets...

My reset was on the upper left connection of the wires... just looks like a small push button, but the reset is recessed a bit.
Replace all covers and plug back in.. working fine..

first check you thermostat settings and make sure that it is on a cooling setting if ok it can be the fuse that sends the power to the outside unit if fuse is ok it can be the capasitor for the compressor if ok you may have to check the compressor for open windings or ground fault so you will have to replace the compressor or the relay which is after the thermostat

a fuse blows for a reason. dry bearings will increase amp draw, a non rotating fan rotor will blow a fuse. burnt windings will almost instantly blow a fuse. just changing the fuse may not solve your problem. find the problem and fix it THEN replace the fuse.

most boards have a small 3 or 5 amp fuse on the board it looks just like a car fuse. do not put in wrong size fuse it can allow damage to the board.

4 wire what? Was the unit working before this? Sounds like some wires crossed

the unit works by chilling air and the byproduct is heat in the compressor, this is used for heating in the winter and then reversed in summer to blow cold air. It has to blow cold and warm up before it can blow heat.

I've replaced many Amanda control boards. They have micro relays attached to the board. These relays are about a half inch by 1 inch in size, and control line voltage to the compressor and blower motor, and give up quite often. Its probably the board if its a digital controlled board. If it has manual, turn to select, type knob, it will be in that fan section knob. Hope this helps!
