almost has to be the electric heat strip coils. they usually come on in stages. when the damaged strip comes on it kicks breaker. turn off all power, check with a meter , gently remove strips and inspect for broken or shorted coils. usually best to buy a new heat strip module. they are usually held in place as a module with 4 screws and a snap together wire connector .good luck. i have had some success if the wires are broken and not to brittle by bending a minute loop in the end of each wire and reconnect with the tiniest screw and washer and nut you can find, i'm talking real tiny. about the size of a bb if you can find em , or you can remove the damaged strip wire entirely to get some heat from remaining.

Make sure a back draft in the flue is not happening. Wind can blow it out until the flue heats up. The flame sensor may not be close enough to the burner flame. It may be weak and need to be replaced or if its an optical one it may be dirty and not see the flame very well. Its not wasting much gas but it puts extra wear and tear on the gas controls, is noisy, and, as you said, blows cold drafty air. A gas control system that has issues of any kind is not real safe. It needs to get fixed.

SOURCE: Code 32 when wind blows
Hi and welcome to Fixya. I believe that the wind is affecting the draft. What I would recommend is to install a cap on the flue that is similar to a weather vane in that it rotates to block the wind from creating a downdraft in the flue. Some times depending on the direction and strength of the wind it will come up over the roof peak and then down the flue. A regular fixed cap may work too. You should be able to purchase one at your local hardware store. Please let me know if this was helpful. Good luck.

the fuse is for low voltage 24v wires it is most likely located on the control board inside your furnace or air handler most of the time it will look like an automotive fuse there is probably a reason why its blowing usually a pinch or short in the wire if its a re accuring problem you might want to get a resetable 3amp fuse or popper i would be more concrned about calling the company and saying you charged me and never fixed the problem

You're unit is a 31/2 ton according to the numbers.Normally, breakers will only be in a half way posistion when tripped. Yes, under most conditions, the fuse will blow before the breaker trips. I have seen this many times, the breaker may be weak, burned, loose wires and so tighten wires, check the condition of the breaker.It sounds like the breaker even though it is 60 amps, is the problem and you should replace it with out hesitating. This will solve you're problem. When you pull the breaker out, look at the metal clips that snap in on the buss bar to see if they have been overheating.And the buss bar its self. You will know. I am sure this will take care of you're problem. Good Luck,
