Where are you seeing this? On the furnace or air conditioner condensing unit? Because the model you gave me is for the furnace.

The whole unit outside.
I took the cover off and cleaned the inside. Of the unit while checking the wires
Expert:  Tim H. replied 1 year ago.
Check the circuit breaker and also, many times the outside disconnect electrical box has fuses in it. Check these, too, if you can. Let me know what you find.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What is the fuse going to look like if it is bad. I looked at the box and it looks good
Expert:  Tim H. replied 1 year ago.
If a fuse in the outside disconnect is blown, it won't be visual. You'll need to take it up to a local hardware store and have it checked.
