DIY Heat Pump Fuse Replacement

Prerequisite reading to this post. Upon further inspection, one of the fuses on the handle was blown. Went to the local big box home store and got a 2 of the same fuses for $10. Replaced blown fuse and the heat pump worked again. Hooray. I realize the sample size is small for this (n=2, me and my neighbor), but if you have a new heat pump, then most likely it is a fuse and not the heat pump that is actually broken. Make sure the system is turned off before you pull the fuse holders out, or just call someone who know what they are doing.
