Best to go to Rheem website and download the right wiring diagram. You don't want to take a chance and damage something else.

Heating element, REALLY? Your gas furnace has high temp limits around the burners, heat exchanger, and probably the blower also. The little switches have 2 wires connected to it, and a small reset between the wires. Should have a little red dot/color on the push button that resets. I'd suggest calling a professional.

that reset is for the high pressure switch. this means your compressor is getting to hot which is then increasing the pressure and tripping the switch because the fan isn't running. usually if a capacitor is bad you can give the motor a "kick start " and the blade will then start turning. use a long stick or screwdriver to spin the blade but then you will know you need a cap. that switch is protecting your compressor, don't hold it down to keep it running.

Likely a bad motor. If you have a meter and electricity confidence you need to verify that you have high and low voltage AT the motor. If both voltages present and still no motor you know it's bad. If no low voltage, possibly have a bad control board.

Replace the fuse with a light bulb. You should be able to take some measurements now to find the fault.
