gotoman for ac :

Check the inside unit to see if you have a blown fuse. It will be on fan board. 5 amp auto fuse. Russ

Customer:

Is that the upper door or lower door?

gotoman for ac :

If it is furnace lower door. Air handler upper door. Russ

Customer:

How do I check the fuse.

Customer:

How do i check the fuse?

gotoman for ac :

The fuse just unplugs and is clear plastic. Hold it up and look thru you can see element. If it is bad you will know. Russ

Customer:

Ok that one looks good. It's only a 3amp. does it need to be bigger?

gotoman for ac :

If fuse looks good reinstall. Look for a float switch in the white PVC drain line. Has two wires out of it. It could be tripped. Russ

Customer:

The PVC drain line doesn't have any wires coming out of it. It runs in to a black box. Could that be the problem?

gotoman for ac :

That may be the sump pump. It has a safety switch in it. Tap on top of box and see if it comes on. Russ

Customer:

I tapped on it, it didn't turn on. I lifted it up and lifted the floats and nothing happened. Is water supposed to be in the box?

gotoman for ac :

Yes.Water should be in pump. Does the inside fan run in the on position. Just trying to find out if we have control voltage. Russ

Customer:

No it doesn't

gotoman for ac :

What is model number of unit inside. Need to pull manual. Russ

Customer:

the furnance, it's model number gsc130301a

gotoman for ac :

Thanks. Look on control board where fuse was located and see if you see a light. If you open blower door you will have to push door switch in to see light. Russ

Customer:

I have to push in the button. There is no light on when I push it in

gotoman for ac :

Are you sure the fuse is OK. If light is not own you have no power to unit or dead board. Russ

Customer:

Its a 3amp fuse. Should I put a different one in?

gotoman for ac :

Not a bigger one just change fuse. Russ

Customer:

I put a 5amp in. the light still didn't turn on

gotoman for ac :

Check breaker to unit. If it is Ok You have a bad door switch or bad board. Russ

Customer:

The Breaker is good. How do I check the door switch? Or how do I check the board?

gotoman for ac :

You will need a voltmeter to check the voltage to board and from transformer. Russ
