No power to my thermostat. not electrical savy and thought…

Customer Question
Hello. no power...

Hello. no power to my thermostat. not electrical savy and thought maybe it went dead on it's own but now see that power is supplied to it via blue wire? i guess somewhere there is a blown fuse?

Contractor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Thermostat had now power, so thought I would put new smart one on but no power to that so there must not be getting power. sorry, don't know what to say.

Usually in blower panel on furnace. Remove panel on furnace and look inside for a control board with a small auto type fuse.

ok found fuse but not broken
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago

Did you remove fuse and make sure it is intact , No burned spot? If so lets next look to see if maybe you have a float switch or condensate pump for drain that might be breaking circuit.
