rheem model rcba 3765 gg17

I damaged outside thermostat line with weedeater. Checked all wire nuts and no lights on inside control board. I believe that the 120/24 transformer is blown because the wires were exposed and touched on contact. Can not find fuse near transformer

That model number is for a coil not an airhandler or furnace.

it doesnt have to be near the transformer, they can be hard to find. look over the control board thoroughly to see if you find one.

Many older Rheem gas furnaces do not have a fuse and will lose the transformer when you short your condenser control wiring.

24vac 40VA transformers are inexpensive if you intend to replace this yourself. Remember to remove power first.

I think I've also seen em at Fry's.
