Hi I'm Brian and I'm here to help!

I'm sure I can help with this. A little more info would be helpful. The make and model number of the furnace, which fuse you are referring to, where it's located and at what point in the last cycle you referred to did the fuse blow? Did the furnace light and run for a full cycle or did the fuse blow at the point where it should have lit?
