Re: GDS80904BXBC WILL FIRE FOR A FEW SECONDS AND THEN...
If it is the fuse on the furnace board,disconnect all low voltage wires to r-g-w-y-c.make sure you label where they go.jump out red to white if unit comes on and runs,chances are you have a bad t-stat wire or tstat.

check for bare wires grounding out , wiper motor failure or wiper shafts seizing up and overloading the motor
using a bigger fuse will only result in the wiring harness burning out and possible fire in the car
Fuse holders sometimes become weak due to heating. If the fuse is not held very tightly by the holder, the fuse will blow because it gets hot, not because the current exceeds the fuse's rating. If this is the case, replacing the fuse holder would be in order. This is not to be confused with the situation where the fuse blows when the door is opened or closed. In that case it's a door switch sequencing issue, or a bad switch.
what 13 amp external fuse are you speaking about? if this is a power line fuse feeding the dryer then its way too small normally you use 2 30 amp fuses or a 30 amp tandem pole breaker to power the receptacle where the dryer plug plugs in
A bigger fuse can burn things, be careful.
You have an amp draw bigger than the fuse can take, that's why it blows, and the clutch on the compressor for the A/C may be your culprit. If you can unplug the wiring to the compressor, replace the fuse with the correct one, and see if it fails then.
If it blows the fuse as soon as you hit the START button, it's almost certainly a shorted high-voltage capacitor.
If it blows a few seconds after you hit the START button, it's probably the high-voltage transformer. You'll possibly also smell a faint electrical burning smell from the rear vent after you shut if off.
If it blows the fuse as soon as it's plugged in, you probably have a shorted door switch, a shorted varistor, or an internally exposed wire shorting to the chassis, etc.
If the fuse blows as soon as you hit START, then it's likely that you have a shorted high-voltage capacitor.
If the fuse blows a few seconds after you hit START, then it's likely that you have an overheating / shorting high-voltage transformer.
