The fuse in the unit should be in the top right if you are looking at it. You have to remove the 2-3 screws holding the vent on top and that should slide and remove. Then you should see it behind a little grating area. However generally if that fuse is out it cuts all power to the unit, so if you are getting lights and the fan the fuse is probably good.
