What kind of system do you have? The fuse is usually located on the circuit board inside the furnace/air handler. It's probably a spade type and would be either amber or purple. 3 or 5 amps.

    If you have power to but no 24 volts from the Transformer then yes you fried it.

Turn off breaker. Remove red, green and yellow wires from tstat. Wire nut the 3 together. Turn on breaker. If unit runs and cools you have a bad tstat

I installed a goodman 5 ton heat cool unit and a 5 wire battery operated tstat, the unit is 2 stage will it work with this tstat cant get anything to work even jumping the tstat

See if there is 124 VAC across the common and the red wire. If not then the thermostat transformer inside the unit will have to be replaced or the fuse changed if it has one(not likely).All t/stats are not the same. If your T/stat doesn't have a provision for the 2nd stage or emergency heat then you have the wrong T/stat That will definitely blow the transformer that supplies 24 vac to the control relays

How are the wires connected from intertherm thermostat to nordyne E1EB-015HA unit

There's probably about 10 different ways to wire them together. If rh & rc where jumped together an tstat then R-RED W-WHITE G-GREEN Yellow (from tstat) to Red to outdoor unit if that's what they had connected outside(should be a red & white outside). If rc & rh were not jumped together @ tstat? The unit has 2 transformers and its a bit different. Rh is 24v from the inside and rc 24v from outside. And also we can use any color we want so who knows what the last guy used. Try this, install the new tformer and at the line voltage wire(L1 or load wire) get a couple of spade connectors(terminal clips) and put one on the tformer and one one the line wire. Then use a 3amp or 5amp blade fuse(auto parts store) and connect your line voltage wire end and tformer wire end to that fuse. But don't let them touch metal or each other. And buy a handful of them fuses(no greater than 5a!!). This protects the tformer as long as its done right. Then reconnect what you remember to be right or just connect 1 wire at a time. Try fan on and cool or heat, 1 wire at a time, and if the fuse opens you know that one is wrong. There is no way you can get the answer you need without knowing what wires are connected to what inside, outside and at tstat. Hope this helps and WORK SAFE!!!

Furnace won't cut off tstat has been replaced

Tstat wires touching? Disconnect wire from gas valve and see if it still stays on. If it does replace gas valve.

Miller furnance Lp that interm.will not shut off

if you turn Tstat off and it still runs then there must be a wire touching another either in the Tstat on wall or in the furnace. i would suggest you look close at wires to R and W to make sure they are not touching.

I have a carrier 38ycc030340 that keeps blowing the airhandler 5 amp fuse

Hello, check the tstat wiring from the air handler to the outside unit and check for any wires that are loose or possibly touching metal, also, make sure the wires are connected securely at the air handler, tstat, and outdoor unit.

I set the tstat to cool everything ok i set tstat to heat it blows the fuse on pc board

Check for wires rubbing together from the thermostat to the furnace. More than likely there is a short somewhere in the low voltage wiring. Check the wires on the thermostat also to make sure none are touching together.

3 ton carrier split unit heat&cool,mod#38QH036300DL, Heat is good, thermostat will not shut it off. only way to shut the inside unit off is turn off the circuit breaker

Sounds like a bad tstat. The Tstat does control the on and off of the unit.
You can check the Tstat by taking off the white wire to the tstat and turning the heat to the on position and if it still comes on you have a bad wire. If it does not come on then you have a bad tstat.
Another option is to open the furnace and look inside at the control wires and follow them back to ensure that they are not shorted together anywhere inside the unit before checking the tstat wires.
If its the control wires then follow option 1 if not follow option 2.
1.Normally people who run tstat wire pull more wires than necessary to the tstat. Because of this you can use a different one for the heat which is white on the tstat. Remember that if you use another color on this then you need to change it on the inside unit as well. Otherwise it will not work. In other words change it on one end of the line you have to change it on the other to make it work.
To check the tstat wires, use continuity. Take all the wires off the tstat and the inside unit. These are the small control wires, not the main 110 wires. Check each one against each other to see if any of them are shorted together. Be sure to write down the wire colors and the terminals that they belong to on both sides before you take them off otherwise you will have big problems...
If you do not have another wire then pulling a new wire will be the next option.

2. If this does not solve it, then its the TSTAT, Replace it. Hope this helps.

Have Amana furnace model GUIB070A30 condenser model RCA24A2A. Replaced a battery and since then neither the air conditioner or furnace will come on. Any ideas? Is there a reset button? Where is it to try?

sounds like you shorted out the t-stat or transformer, low voltage is real sensitive on this type of unit and the only reset button would be on the tstat depending on which type and model thermostat look in owners manual on tstat reset if you cant find take stat off wall and twist red , green, and yellow wires together and if the whole system comes on replace stat if it doesnt the transformer in a/h went bad

Tstat wiring

Thanks for your Question,
one of two possiblities, first and most likely is that you have blown the Transformer in the Furnace, second would be that you have blown the small car fuse that is on the circuit board in the furnace, if you look really hard you will find it, it looks like an automotive fuse, should be about three amps, if it is the fuse, then its a simple fix, make sure the power is off, replace the fuse, if its the transformer, a little more involved work is needed, but still should be pretty straight forword, and again, please make sure the power is off when replacing, hope that helped ! please be sure to come back and let us know how I did for ya, thanks again,
