Hi I amCustomer a independent technician, I will assist you with your issue.

Don't forget to rate the 5 star rating AT THE TOP OF PAGE if we are done. this will credit me for assisting you.

There should be a diagram on furnace panels or on the blower.

But you dont need that to locate the fuse on the control board of furnace.

Fuse is either 3 or 5 amps orange or purple. pull it out and see if its burnt in the center

The model number you provided is not of the air handler but the coil, please provide exact make and model or air handler.

I checked the air handler. The fuse wasn't blown but one of the breakers in the air handler was tripped but when I turned the breaker back on it still didn't work.
HVAC Technician: Gaztech, HVAC Technician replied 8 months ago

When you reset breaker flip completly off then back on.

Also check the breakers on the house main breaker panel.

Then you will need to confirm voltage to air handler with a volt meter (240 V) between main power cables Black and red usually

I did all of that except for check the volts. Is it possible that the capacitor in the air handler is bad?
HVAC Technician: Gaztech, HVAC Technician replied 8 months ago

Capacitor can be bad but heat pump would start anyways.

If you put fan on at t-stat and turn the blower wheel by hand does it want to continiue turning.

If not.. its not Capacitor.

check for voltage ASAP, stop gessing this and thAT

the fan will come on if it's put on fan
HVAC Technician: Gaztech, HVAC Technician replied 8 months ago

Then you know the capacitor is good

Put t-stat to fan Auto, then

on the control board of air handler, put a jumper wire between R and W,

Thet should start flower and elements .

HVAC Technician: Gaztech, HVAC Technician replied 8 months ago

That should start blower and elements .

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I haven't had a chance to check that yet. If that starts it, what's the problem.
HVAC Technician: Gaztech, HVAC Technician replied 8 months ago

Means you might have a problem with thermostat or wiring.

Have you had the change YET?

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Not yet. It's not at my house it is at the church. I will probably check it today. It has 2 thermostats. If I take the face off and switch would I be able to tell if the thermostat is bad?
HVAC Technician: Gaztech, HVAC Technician replied 7 months ago

Visual inspection of T-stat is not the way to check. Checking T-stat is done with a multi meter..

First You need to do the jumper at the furnace like I said first
