york heat pump

I have a york heat pump model #E1F024506B. I changed the thermostat on it a month ago. the a/c was working fine but when it started getting cold my heat wasn't working so I put the old thermostat back on it then only the air handler was working. I checked the voltage at my pumps contactor and I was getting 26 volts to ground but 0 across the coil so I checked my board in my air handler and someone put a 30 amp fuse where a 5 amp suppose to be. I took off the board and found a burnt spot on it. I soldered the bad spot and put 5 amp fuse back in it now my air blower and aux heat is working but not my heat pump. Any ideas what could be wrong.

Thank you,
Jason

Does the A/C work?

When you said you got the fan and Aux heat to work, is this with the old or new t-stat?

Check your Y wire hook up on the board to see if you are getting power from the t-stat, and there should be another wire from the outdoor unit meeting on the board's Y.

It sounds like you are getting 24 volts control voltage at the contactor, so IS the Contactor pulling IN?

I was before I fixed that burnt spot but it looked like I wasn't getting my common. I even tried to hook up another contactor
and it still wasn't closing. After I fixed the burnt spot I'm reading nothing to ground or across the coil.

The burnt spot I fixed on the board was for the common.

sounds like we may have a board failure if it is not sending the 24 volts out, the soldering iron may have damaged one of the little diodes or something. I guess you will have to put a new board on dont you think?
