You have an intermitent short in your low voltage wires. You need to trace the wire all the way to the A/H and then to the condensing unit. I bet you will find a bare spot. Check where the wire goes through the brick to the condensing unit. Ground squirrels are bad about chewing though the insulation. if this is where the short is, replace the wire from the A/H to condensing unit.

Panasonic microwave keeps blowing fuses jus put in a new fuse but after a few days blowes another fuse


Luzetta
This is a common problem with microwave ovens and is easy to diagnose. Whenever I replace the fuse, I always perform this test. I don't want the unit coming back in a couple of days with the same problem.
Install a known good fuse. It should be a 20 Amp, Slo-Blo, with a ceramic body. Leave the cover off. Place a container with at least 2 cups of water inside the unit. Cook on high for at least 5 minutes. As soon as it finishes, UNPLUG the unit and feel the fuse. If it is extremely hot, the fuse is going to fail in a short period of time. The fusible material inside the fuse is melting from this excessive heat. It only takes a small amount of resistance at the fuse holder contacts to create this amount of heat. Replace the fuse holder rated at least 20 Amps. The higher the better.

2004 jeep grand cherokee laredo keeps blowing the fuse for the parking lights and taillights


If it "keeps" lowing the fuse, there can be only one reason for it...you "keep" replacing the fuse without diagnosing the circuits to find out WHY the fuse is blowing in the first place.
When a fuse blows, there is a reason for it. If you do not find the reason and correct it, the fuse will continue to blow.

Please also review this article: Where's The Fuse?

With all of that said, the first thing I would check is all of the light bulbs. Sometimes the bulbs get really hot and melt inside and it causes the metal contacts in the bulbs to touch each other and short the circuit out. This is especially true if you can replace the fuse and everything seems to work ok for a while. They will all work until the offending bulb gets hot and "POOF" there goes the fuse again.

This condition can be hard to diagnose since the short circuit usually goes away as soon as the bulb cools off for a few seconds. In cases like this, what I usually recommend to save time and money is to replace all of the bulbs.

If it is fuse #6 (15 Amp) in the Central Junction Block that keeps blowing, it only powers the tail lamps, licence plate lamps, front park lamps and the front side marker lamps. The cost of replacing all of these bulbs is a LOT cheaper than an hour of diagnostic time at most shops. If this does not fix the problem, then you will have to trace all of the wires going to all of these bulbs to find out which one is shorting and where it is shorting. This could turn out to be very time-consuming and expensive, but at least, you will have eliminated the likelyhood that it is caused by a bulb.

1992 gmc pickup keeps blowing heater fuses I replaced the blow motor and it keeps blowing


Have you replaced the blower resistor . some times they can cause the fuse to blow . You may need a muiltmeter to test the current draw on the blower motor circuit. the draw should be less then half of the rated fuse .( 20 amp fues draw is less then 10 amps) You did not say but does the blower work on high only or the lower speeds with out blowing the fuse ? if it does work on low or high with out blowing the fuse i would replace the blower resistor

Thermostat keeps blowing fuses


There is a short in one of the thermostat wires. The fuse is triggered on the low voltage side of the unit. Replace the wires.

I have a 2000 Hyundai Accent that keeps blowing the ECU 1 Fuse. I can change it one time and it will last for three weeks then before you know it I can change it 5 times in one day. What does the ECU 1...


The ECM1 fuse blowing usually indicates that the fuel pump wires shorted inside the tank. If you drop the tank and remove the module, you will probably find the insulation burned off the gray pump wire.

One unit runs a while, powers down, other unit blows transformer


you say it keeps blowing the transformer? you mean circuit breaker? if it is the circuit breaker, have the wiring checked for a short, if no short do a ohm test on the compressor. it may have shorted out internaly.

Thermostat


Several things cause fuses to go. But you ace in the hole is that it works for sometime before it goes out. This suggests that a relay or contactor is not pulling in as it should. I would try replacing the fan relay (if so equipped) and definitely the compressor contactor. If either of these try to pull in and are off center internally the result can be blown fuses intermittently.

DO NOT GO ABOVE 5 amp fuse or you may burn out the transformer.
The other things that can cause a blown fuse intermittently where your describing (although less likely unless subject to rodents and or high or low voltage spikes)
1 a temporary short in the control wiring (wire to or from the thermostat).
2 A short intermittent on the control board (if so equipped)
3 A relay on the control board or the SS circuitry is not operating with in design parameters.

I would really like to know what you discover the problem is.

If this helped you understand your system or problem please rate me as high as you can and thank you for using fix ya. Good Luck.
