Put a 100 amp fuse in or call a technician - I think the llatter would be very sensible - if you go for option 1 though can you film it and put it on Utube?

blowing a 3amp fuse could be a short in the system or I've seen that it should be a 5 amp fuse check your 24v wires ohm them out make sure theirs not a break and make sure your getting 24 out of your transformer

Thirty amp fuse blows. Disconnected the compressor wires and the fan runs and does not blow the fuse. Is the electrical part of the compressor serviceable on it's own or does the entire compressor...

Hello, yes it sounds like your compressor windings are shorting to ground thus blowing the fuse. The whole compressor must be replaced in this situation.

Goodmen 5ton ckl060 condenser breaker keeps tripping has 50amp breaker #6 wire unit runs but tripps out 5 times a day

Your condenser is either pulling too many amps and needs to be service by a tech or you have a weak breaker that needs replaced by an electrician.

3 amp fuse blowing in York central A/c

a blown fuse is a sign of a short circuit. either connections are touching each other or a relay is busted. Have it checked. Have the system leak checked also, this would result to better cooling/heating and energy savings.

Blowing 3amp fuses

You have a low voltage short. A lot of low voltage shorts come from the wires that go out to the outdoor unit. Go outside and inspect those wires and that they are in good condition. Also check for any splices in those wires that they haven't degraded in any way. This is the only thing that will blow the fuse. That's why it's only 3 amps and based on the size of your fuse, it's a gas fired unit right? Have a great day!
