Hidden Heat Pump Fuses

One day our heat pump stops working. I hear a clicking sound when turning on the thermostat, but the heat pump no run. I figure electricity must be trying to get there, and being a manly man, went to assess the situation. I must have pulled that little on/off handle out of this box right above the heat pump about 3 or 4 times, only to discover absolutely nothing. Finally, right before calling someone to take a look at the unit (probably costing $100), I pulled the handle one more time and lo and behold, there were fuses on the actual handle (not in the box, where I was stupidly looking). Story continued here.
