3 amp fuse blows after three hours on Goodman 4 ton 16 seer pump

I have the Model# MBE2000 & CAPF4860D6A 16 seer 4 ton heat pump. After two-four hours the heat pump blows the fuse on the circut board in the indoor unit. Is very annoying. I have been replacing these 3 amp fuses at a rate of 5 per day. Started satruday when temps were down in 20's. Furnace runs normally untill the fuse blows then shuts off. Circut breakers are not tripping or anything. Tried to un plug the hudistate and that didn't help. Please any help would be nice. 50 degree mornings ****.

I would suspect you have a problem in the defrost circuit of your heat pump. there are a couple of things you can try. first just run the system on emergency heat and see what happens. you could have a defrost board that is shorting when it kicks into defrost. it sends a signal back to the furnace so it will come on during defrost. if you do not blow a fuse as long as you are running in emergency heat, i would suspect the defrost control board. also you could have a dead short in the wire that runs from the "w" terminal on furnace control board, out to the heat pump. keep in mind that any of the wires could be the cause and i am just tying to give you the most common things. your furnace will still run if you unhook all the low voltage wiring out at the heat pump. if you do this and stop blowing fuses. you know it is something on that wiring. goodl luck.

3a fuse blowing on the blower motor board


The 3 amp fuse blowing indicates some control function is either grounding out (probably a worn insulation on control wire) or one or more of the solenoid controls is pulling more wattage than it is designed to draw. The solenoids for the main contactor and reversing valves should only draw about 0.1 to 0.25 amp. Any more than this the solenoid overheats and causes the control fuse to blow. I have actually had to replace the thermostat wire on some units because the control that was pulling more than designed caused the entire length of thermostat wire to overheat and break down the insulation, causing the control wire to short to the common wire or others and cause more than required operations to occur simultaniosly. One unit had a short and emergy heat was coming on the same time cooling was on.

Buy a heat kit from a Goodman dealer. Check that your existing wire will carry the amp load.

Goodman package unit heat strips will not turn on


Put meter probes at in put terminal of the element if you read 220volts that mean your relay is good. if you got it there use amp meter on one leg of that element. You should read some amp draw there but if there is no amp draw it mean the element broke.

I have a 16-seer goodman heat pump , why does my 3 amp control power fuse blow


Hi,
that fuse is there to protect the control board and the transformer...you have a problem with the wiring or the control board is shorted...to find the problem can be very difficult!! Using an OHM meter and tracing circuits can help, but sometimes they will only short when power is applied, so that makes it very difficult and you just need to unhook things one by one to eliminate potential problems...
