The 3A fuse blows on the main board when the bottom door switch is pushed

I have a GMH 951155DX furnace. The heat cycle works okay. When I switch to A/C and push the bottom door switch the 2A fuse on the main board blows. I put a new main board in. I removed the condensor two wires, I removed all the wires and plugged them one at a time, when I plugged the wire into the rollout sensor, it blew the fuse. I get 6 blinks, which says "bad fuse" or "rollout sensor open" I disconnected the wires to the thermostat, hooked them up one at a time, when I hooked the red wire the fuse blew. I replaced the thermostat, no help. This is a new installation, it did work for a while, I had a freon leak, when I repaired that, then the condensor would not come on, that is when I found the fuse blown.

    I did remove the thermostat wires at both ends, did a continuity check, all okay. I tried hooking up the roll-out sensor, with the thermostat wires off at the thermo. touched the red to the yellow to turn on the condensor, it blew the fuse. As long as I have the "roll-out sensor" hooked up it will blow a fuse. I checked the 24v transformer, 115 ac in and 27v out. With that out of the system no fuse blow, but no action either. With the thermostat out of the system no fuse blow, but no action either. I am at a loss. thanks for your help

    I found the problem. When I repaired the leak, the heat passed through the plenum to the thermostat wire, melted the insulation and caused a short in the yellow wire, when 24v was put on it, the fuse blew. a piece of tape fixed the problem when we found it. Interestilgly enough an ohm test of the thermostat wires did not reveal the problem, only a look at the wire found it. thanks for your help.

There is definitely a short in the 24volt(low voltage) system. You have done the right things so far. I would begin by physically inspecting the wires for damage and performing continuity checks for each wire as well as each wire to the furnace. These checks should be done with a meter and disconnecting each wire at both ends.

Sometimes there is a very small bare spot touching the furnace or ductwork. You can diagnose this by checking continuity from the wire to the ductwork. If there is continuity then that is your problem.

    Try checking the continuity on the 2, 24volt wires that go to the condenser unit. The problem may be in this part of the system. Check these wires as you did the thermostat wires before. The problem may be in the wires themselves or the contactor relay located in the condenser electrical panel. give that a try.

    I am glad you found it. That is one of the most difficult shorts to locate. Good Job!

do you have the lower door in place tight ?? because there is a door button switch. so if its not pushed in all the way you would have no power at furnace. also make sure nobody turned off the on off service switch usually above furnace or sometimes one at top of stairs and one down by the furnace .if those suggestions don't work you might want to turn each breaker off then back on incase one is tripped. if that don't work check for 120 volt at your fan timer board also it may have a automotive style fuse on the board which if blown it wont do anything. if there is 120 volt at board and the 24 volt circuit fuse is good its probably the fan timer board.

Kenmore thermal fuse keeps blowing and im getting a white powdery film


If the thermal fuse blows it is a direct result of heat. The most common place for the heat to be generated is the wire connections to the fuse, the wire connections on the main control board and the door switch.

The thermal fuse comes with a small wire kit, be sure you or the technician used that wire kit if not you will continue to have trouble. If you have then look the board over closely, especially the black plastic plugs, if you see any dark spots or loose connections make sure to tighten them up. Then check the wires to the door switches make sure they are tight connections. If all these are okay then check the gasket on the left side that surrounds the vent, if heat escapes this gasket it can migrate over toward that thermal fuse.

I hope this helps

Nu wave oven no power in heating part--stopped working after two uses


It doesn't work at all If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these: Fuses Door switch Fuses Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it. Door switch If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work. It sounds normal, but there's no heat When the microwave sounds okay, but there's no heat, one of the internal door switches, the high voltage circuitry, or the circuit board may have a problem. To resolve this problem, you need the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THE DOOR SWITCHES, MY FIRST ANSWER WOULD BE REPLACE THE SWITCH SECOND WOULD BE OPEN THE DOOR AND PUSH THE BUTTON IN AND SEE IF THE FURNACE WILL WORK.

Ruud achiever 90 plus gas furnace not blowing any heat


These new furnaces are trouble. Ive been in the htg trade for 25 yrs. The fan is running because they are now controlled by a timer instead of a temperature control. Rather than sensing a preset temperature and turning on the fan, it comes on by a preset time. Couple of things, does either of the doors have an inspection window? most newer furnaces have what is called a smart board. The board will flash a trouble code. ie: 1 long 2 short etc. #1 turn your thermostat to off, youll need 2 people for this! Go to the furnace, If it has the above mentioned inspection window ( usually about 2" round) while peering through the window have someone turn the thermostat to about 80 degrees. Let the furnace cycle and see if it flashes a code. If it does the codes are usually on the bottom door, May be on the inside. The most common cause is either a bad transformer, bad hot surface ignitor or pressure switch failure. Further questions feel free to ask. Steve
