Question
Where is t.he fuse

Answer
If you take the case off of the frame you should discharge the main capacitor before doing anything on the unit.  Sometimes they hold a charge and can shock.  

If you follow the power cord into the unit it should be located on the hot side of the power cord inside the case.  You will need a special slow blow fuse.  Also do not place a higher amperage fuse in the unit than is in it now.  It should look like a car fuse and will be in a holder.
