Need to reset and/or replace fuse on A/C unit, but how?

I recently tried installing a new thermostat in my house. I can't get
it to work and support from the tstat manufacturer determined I must
have blown a fuse, because when I touch the R(red), Y(yellow) and
G(green) wires together it doesn't make the fan or compressor turn on.

I have a Goodman unit (split system heat pump) for a 1,900 sq. ft.
house. Anyone know if it's easy to reset this unit? Flipping breakers
for A/C and A/H on outside elec. box doesn't fix it. There is a small
box next to the A/C unit, but it looks like a pull-out breaker that
says "on or off" on it. I don't know anything about this, so am
leaving it alone for now.

Any ideas?

Your anwser lies in the Yellow Pages, under Air Conditioning
Contractors. Call one and tell them to come fix whatever you blew up.

I know pretty much exactly what you did and what its gonna take to fix it.

However, being as I can't do it over the internet, I would recommend calling
your favorite *competent*, licensed, insured, professionaly trained, HVAC
technician to diagnose and repair the system.

This is Turtle.

I have a good ideal as to what the part that is burnt up is. You have burnt
up your Low Power converter emitter which controls everything if it is
emitting right. If you short it out it become a Demitter and will not do
anything at all. You need to check to see if it is emitting , demitting, or
Admitting. If it is admitting anything. You need to reverse the polarity to
get it to emitting back to 24 volts.

TURTLE
And to keep the transmitting down he needs the tin foil hat. Helps reduce
the "Lux" so he can permit to commit to remit the cash.
