hello,

my name is Billy.

Does the furnace blower run even if thermostat turned off?

HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 1 year ago

thank you...do you mind taking the doors off the furnace?

we need to check a small fuse....also is there a chance any thermostat wire to the outdoor unit was, weedwacked, pulled, chewed etc?

Ok doors are off...The cables to the condenser is pretty thick
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 1 year ago

Not the 220v wires...there is a small thermostat cable that runs to ac along with the refrigerant pipe.

Now..on the circuit board with the blinking light...do you see a blade fuse like in a car..or can you post a pic?

HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 1 year ago

Fault recall
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Damn fuse burnt
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ok I replaced it with a good one I had in the garage
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Can I turn it on?
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 1 year ago

you can....but if the short is still there...bad wire, bare wire etc...the fuse will blow again.

If it does. get more fuses and start searching that small wire into the outdoor unit
