Billy, I have a 1992 Payne VCD0060. I had a full service cleaning

Customer Question

Billy, I have a 1992 Payne VCD0060. I had a full service cleaning done on Friday. A/C worked great. I did see initially the guys had a problem with start up but then I went back in. Today, it will not start. There is an LCD light that does 2 long blinks and 4 short blinks. I tried to follow the instructions to do a relay test but it didn't work. What is wrong with my HVAC?

Hello,
Can you take the doors off and locate the circuit board in the blower section?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes I see it. I can take a pic if you like
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 year ago.
Now next to the red light is a blade fuse like found in a car.
Remove that and look at side. The 24 code is telling us we may have a blown fuse
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't see a fuse
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 year ago.
can you remove the metal piece hiding the rest of board?...do you see where the blinking light would be?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's that little red LED in pic
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
2 longer blinks then 4 faster blinks
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
then repeat
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 year ago.
I cannot see it in the pic...all I see is the thermostat connections and the metal panel that hides the rest of board.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
check these out
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 year ago.
ok see the red and blue wire at back edge?
Then the purple blade fuse in front of those wires? I can see in the pic it is blown and needs replaced
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
see arrow
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 year ago.
this is an older board so the fuse is not next to the light like on newer one. now from that arrow....move to the opposite end of the board...look for where a red and blue wire connect and then you will see a purple blade fuse.
If you can see it I will copy pi and mark

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
3A?
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 year ago.
CORRECT....
Now replace that..but alo check the wires outside that go to ac (thermostat wires) and make sure no damage, chewed, weed wacked etc,
Then you should be all set
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay I will run out and grab one and let you know.
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 year ago.
Get a 5 pack in case....
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay update..... I grabbed the fuses. I put it in and it blew. Next time I put it in with the A/C off and I turned the blower from auto to on. The blower motor fired up. I turned on and off a few time without issue. Then when I flipped the A/C on the blower ran for maybe 15 seconds at the most and then the fuse blew.
