    Rheem RGRL-04EMAES blowing 3-amp fuse

    Hey guys, I have a Rheem furnace model number RGRL-04emaes that blows the 3-amp fuse about every 24-hours or so. I have checked the wiring, and found no bare wires or bad connections. After extensive electrical testing on the 24-volt side I haven't found anything abnormal with the voltage on that side. Any ideas on where and what to start looking for? Thanks in advance!

    extensive electrical checking of voltage won't get you anywhere, you have a short somewhere.
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    Could be a LOT of different things, so call a professional and get it repaired.

    Okay....I'll give you a hint....it could be a short in the thermal exchange enclosure.

    You guys are off the mark. It's got to be the muffler bearing.
    The picture in my avatar is of the Houston Ship Channel and was taken from my backyard. I like to sit outside and slap mosquitos while watching countless supertankers, barges and cargo ships of every shape and size carry all sorts of deadly toxins to and fro. It's really beautiful at times.....just don't eat the three eyed fish....
