SOURCE: Have a hampton bay 24000
I checked wiring on my other 17,000 BTU Hampton bay AC & noted there was no overload switch wired into capacitor. So i just removed the burnt out overload switch which was causing a ground & blowing breaker. I noted it was not wired in between the compressor circuit but just attached to the compressor terminal & common terminal on capacitor. I guess it is a sacrafise type device that saves the compressor from burning out on overload. Anyway The AC worked fine with the burnt overload switch removed. It has been runnning 2 days now with no problems. I however did replace the capacitor with a new one. You can use either an oval or round capacitor as there is ample room. Just make sure your cap. values match old one. I will probable try & purchase a new overload switch if possable & install it at a later date, for the extra protection.

SOURCE: overload burnouts
Check the back coil from the inside and see if they are plugged up, where the fan blades throws the water and air on the back coils ( If this is plugged solid and can,t get rid of heat, the Iamps wll climb and tripp out the overloads, and will restart later on when it cools down and continue to trip this cycles till the overloads burnout! Thank You very much!

no we did not solve, also we do not have your slim a/c but an old outside model as above.
sorry if I have filed in the wrong box for help.

If you can't find the fuse how do you know it needs to be replaced?
The fuse will probably be located at the beginning of the circuit, so somewhere near the plug.
