Sounds like a downflow electric furnace? If so it sounds like you have 15kw worth of electric heat, you might have a defective heating sequencer, witch is what they call a dual on one plate.

Is this a 120v motor, or 220v? If you checked for power, I assume you kind of know your way around a meter. When checking for power, don't check to ground, check the line. You could have power going in, but unless its going back out, completing the circuit, or missing a leg, in 220v case, it still will not work. Also, most heaters have some sort of delay, so after you hook it back up, and the burner heats up wait a few minutes for the fan to come on.

It's the heat kit in the unit that is causing the problem. You need to do a continuity test on it to eleminate that they have shorted. This is the only thing in an electric furnace that will blow a fuse on it. Intertherm is a Nordyne product for manufactured homes. Of coarse they still sell them! I am a Nordyne dealer. Also a sequencer can not cause a fuse to blow. The service guy just wants to make money from you by installing a new unit. You can either re-wire the heat kit or you can purchase a new one and have it installed. If you are referring to the heat kit for 159.00, then that's a fair price for it if you are a non licensed person.

Honeywell makes an electronic ignition conversion kit. (White rodgers also has one but it uses a mercury switch which can be expense if it goes bad). A good service man can install the "Honeywell Y86 Universal Intermittent Pilot Retrofit Kit". This is a "complete" kit for converting a standing pilot system to electronic ignition. It includes a new gas valve, ignition cables with connectors. ignition module and a pilot assembly. It does not include pilot tubing (pilot tubing is cheap). This kit also comes equipped for either natural gas or propane. Your heating guys probably don't know about it because they are to young and not familiar with the old days. Or they just don't care and would rather sell you a furnace. I think that they just don't care. I live in Ohio I just opened up the "new" Johnstone Supply catalog. This part is "not" outdated its on page 450. Do not let these heating guys buffalo you into a new furnace. You are to smart for that! If you weren't you would have believed them and bought something you don't need. Instead of researching on the internet.
The bad news is this kit lists for $456. plus labor.
