Just take a screwdriver and short across the terminals 3 to 4 times. The first time might scare you but just hold the screwdriver well back from the steel shank and ground the 2 terminals repeatedly. Then change your fuse.

Testimonial: "Thanks...Looks like I have to short the terminals to one another and then each one to ground....appreciate the help. "
Time will allow the natural leakage of any capacitor to bleed off stored charge but if you want to be sure, you need to have a simple multimeter to check its condition and it should be one with a 1000V DC range. You can buy these for under $20 US at auto parts stores or electronic outlets. There are safe ways to discharge them but you would need some clip leads and a medium power resistor of ~ 1,000 ohms to avoid arcing. Shorting the terminals with a screwdriver is hard on the tool and your nerves and may even kill a capacitor.

This model is inverter-based, so it does not use the larger, exposed capacitor that transformer-based models do. It uses one or more small capacitors hidden on the inverter board.
As long as the high voltage section was not energized within about a half-hour of disassembly, and one does not contact the high voltage connections, there's really no need to discharge high voltage capacitors.
They have built-in bleeder resistors that bleed off the charge in seconds. But there is that one in a zillion chance the resistor inside is defective, etc.
The shock from stored DC high voltage isn't what hurts you. What hurts is getting sliced up by the sharp metal chassis when you reflexively pull back your hand after the shock.
I'm also curious as to what problem you're troubleshooting.
