Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

If you have not provided the model number of the unit you are needing help with please go ahead and supply that information to me now so that I can give you model specific information on that unit, if you have already provided the model number please give me a few minutes to prepare your answer as I may need to look up part numbers, schematics, etc; depending on your question.

Thank you for your patience.

ok so on that model its fairly old and there is not fuse or reset switch at all, the only thing you can do is kill power at the breaker for a few minutes restore power and see if the unit resets if not and its getting proper voltage from your home wiring that is connected to it then the switch control has failed. The problem with that is since the unit is older they no longer make replacement parts for it so you cant order new parts for that unit, not the control parts anyhow.

The part number you would need is WD21X10115 and everywhere I looked its no longer available.
