Replace with the same rating fuse, but if still burn out or will not function then there is something wrong with the unit. You need a qualified technician for thorough checking.

Hi,
Does not matter which way the fuses go....
The contacts are bad and will cause the fuses to blow sooner because they are heating up...
It will not cause a fire, but you should have the disconnect replaced or you will have continuous problems...

The 5 amp fuse on the board keeps blowing the transformer smoked i replaced that but it still blows the fuse when i install a new fuse.the contactor buzzes then the fuse blows.


You ahve a short in the low voltage system, thats why the fuse blows and the transformer burned out. Find the short and then replace that fuse and that should solve your problem.

I can't get my programmable thermostat to come on


Hi, if you have lost the display, check to see if you have batteries in the stat. If so, replace them. If not, and this is a somewhat new system and you have the indoor and outdoor unit, go to the indoor unit, pull the panel and look for the circuit board. It will have a 3 to 5 amp plug in type fuse that may have blown. You can tell if the top of the fuse has a burned spot on it, or the metal strip is burned in half. Check these things and get back to me.

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,
