I have a lennox electric heat pump. The system kept blowing

Customer Question

I have a lennox electric heat pump. The system kept blowing the 3 amp fuse in the air handler in the attic. I had a professional service come out to fix and they informed me that there is a short in the wires from the condenser to the handler. I ran a new line and the system fire up and cold air flowed. For a day. Now the fan kicks on at the condenser but no cold air flowing in the house. On the condenser circuit board there is a red and green light flashing together. I am clueless as to what to do next.

Probably coinicidental about that wire .Sounds like a totally different issue. If outdoor fan is coming on it will have no relationship to the new wire.We are getting signal from air handler. What is model on outdoor?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
This is a problem. The sticker with that information has been removed. The air handler MN is cbx27uh. Is there an alternative place I might find the MN on the outside unit
