    5amp fuse blowing

    I've been working on a ducane gas furnace and have replace almost every part but the 5 amp fuse keeps blowing every 6 hrs or so. I even changed the thermostat wire the t-stat itself, the control board, the gas valve and even, the blower and it still blows could it be the condensing unit

    just keep changing parts youll get it eventually and call someone who knows what theyre doing. It would be cheaper to stop now a call a certified tech to fix it. When you try to go cheap you usually end up paying twice, or in your case 5 times and counting.

    No I'm not. And I am universal epa certified. And the gas valve was first bad which is why I changed it and I only changed blower because home owner asked. I have asked many other techs I know and no one think of what it could be.

    what does being epa certified have to do with the price of beans in africa? Theres only so many things a LV short could be a good tech would find the problem before unneccassarily changing parts. Why would a homeowner want their blower changed if it wasnt bad?

    Because there the EPA they have to monitor the beans sold there, because they only allow so many farts in one day.

    how many places do you have to post the same question?
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

    Could be the condensing unit. Why have you replaced so many parts without isolating the actual problem?
