IF it has one its usually but not always close to the 2 copper lines on the outdoor unit. BUT not all units have a high pressure reset. LOOK inside the outdoor section for a bare looking copper "wire", It will atach to the smaller copper line comming off thecompressor. If you dont see one it dosnt have one.
If you find it trace it down to the other end and usually has a piece simmlar to a battery sometimes no bigger than a golf ball and the button is usually pointed toward the outside on the other end.
2nd question as far as Im able to tell the fuses (and again it may not require fuses as long as it has a breaker or other means of protection) will be in a usually gr\ay box usually attached to the wall. Trace the wires comming into the unit back to the power source.  And generally the box you find on the wall ois where the fuses are. Now this box is only a disconnect and its reason for being is so hyou can remove power from the oudoor section and work on it sepperately. IT MAY NOT HAVE FUSES AND STILL BE APPROPERATE FOR YOUR TYPE OF INSTALLATION as ameans f disconnecting.

I have control pcb on my bryant hvac home unit. HK42FZ009 blows F1 24 3amp fuse. It happened about a year ago and replacing the fuse solved it until now. New fuse blows immediately. Looking for...

Take everything off the board. With power on and carefully, one by one put all components back on until fuse pops. This will narrow it down. Obvious short to ground in one piece. Verify 24 volts from transformer.

Have a bryant 3.5 ton outside can I change to a bryant 4.0 ton and still use the same inside equipment

This is true as long as it is not a heat pump. Make sure they replace the piston (metering device to match the outdoor units required piston size. Or if the indoor coil is metered via TXV, it will automatically meter the refrigerant flow. If you are mismatching a system, make sure an acid test is performed on the old refrigerant and take appropriate measures with the new system if the test shows positive acid. They need to definitely install a liquid line drier. Hope this helps.

Do bryant condensing units have a reset button? We can't get the unit to kick on. All power is correct and fan starts inside, but can't get condensing unit to kick on.

Most Bryant units do not have a reset button but could have a low pressure or high pressure switch for a safety to protect the compressor. Verify power from the thermostat to the contactor by following the thermostat wires all the way to contactor inside of electrical compartment... TURN POWER OFF BEFORE OPENING.... If power is to contactor and contactor is pulled in then you would need to look at the capacitor of which is a canister about 6 inshes tall with wire terminals on top.. this part should be flat on the top and if it is rounded then thats your problem.. if not then contact a local company to troubleshoot and make necessary repairs.

Air conditioner is only 2 years old. Outdoor fan is not working. Air is circulating inside house but not cool. Bryant Legacy line Model No. 123R Help - seems too soon for the compressor to go bad. What...

You said the outdoor fan is not running, can you hear the compressor running? If you can hear the compressor running then start by checking the fan capacitor. If you can't hear the compressor, then check the breakers or fuses or disconnect. One of these should be located near the outside unit. If you look at the contactor you can see the contacts. When the unit is off they should not be touching, when it is on then the moveable contacts should be pulled down and touching the stationary contacts. You can get some on at the thermostat while you watch the contactor to see if it moves when they change the thermostat to call for a/c. Let me know what you find and I can give you more advice.

Bryant model 594DNO24-E Air out of vents not cool, fan is not moving on AC unit.

I think you are talking about the outdoor unit so see if you can hear the compressor running. If it isn't running then set the thermostat so that the unit is not running and give the pressure time to come down.(15mins-30mins) Discharge pressure will build up if the fan isn't running and cause the compressor to shut down that's the reason for doing this. After this set the thermostat to call for a/c then see if the compressor is running. If it isn't first check your circuit breaker or disconnect or fuses. One of these should be located close to the outdoor unit. If you have power and it's not running then look at the contactor to see if it is pulled in. The contactor supplies both the fan and compressor. After that then check you capacitor. Some use a double capacitor that works the fan and the compressor. Let me know what you find

Outside fan not turning on.

Reset buttons (if applicable) are usually located near the brass service valves.
There is a circuit breaker in your electrical panel that furnishes voltage to your outdoor unit. This is a seperate circuit from the indoor unit.
Outdoor units should have a service disconnect mounted within 10-15 feet. This service disconnect may have fuses or a circuit breaker in it.
Usually if a fuse opens, you will not be able to tell from a visual inspection. It is best to take the fuse to your local hardware store where they can test it and offer a replacement if needed.
I hope you find this to be very helpful moving forward.

What is the part number for the outdoor fan motor?

as old as this unit is you probably cannot read the label on the motor it is either a 1/4 or 1/3 horse power 230 volt motor. a generic motor will work fine, use a 1/3 to be sure. also replace the capacitor so it matches the new motor. if you can read the label the part number is on it, should be an HK # with about 7 more digits

Heat pump Bryant model 541DJ024 Is there a reset switch. The fan comes on but no cold air coming out after power surge/outage 3 days ago.

their is sometimes a high psi switch that has a manual reset. it is red with a red rubber button. it is usualy lokated in th outdoor unit. in most areas it is code that their is a disconnect within 10 ft of the unit most of the time they have fuses in them. open the disconnect and their is a plastic sheild that needs removed sometimes.
