Trane heat pump information

I just replaced the thermastatin my house. But it stillisn't working. I had a friend (hes an electrcian, just begining)look at it. He says the fuse or the transformer is bad. He couldnt find the fuse. I need to find out where its located, and I would also like to know where the transformer is. I have a Trane heat pump. Thanks for any help I can get

If your friend can't figure out where the xformer is and whether there's a fuse, then I'd say he's still a piss poor electrician and ought to keep his hands off that kind of equipment until he knows what he's about..
What caused you to replace the thermostat, and by saying "you" replaced it do you mean you did the work yourself? If by chance you did, I hope you killed the appropriate power source before you started removing and replacing wires from terminals?.
Just wondering, but you'd prolly be MUCH better off calling in a Trane service technician rather than learning what the term "golden screwdriver" means, the expensive way.

That is a nice, expensive brand of HVAC equipment.
Call a local service company, explain what you have done, and throw yourself on their mercy. Hopefully for $150 or so they will repair whatever damage you have done and get you back up and working again.

If you installed the new thermostat without turning off the power to it, you may have killed the thermostat. I'm making the assumption you didn't turn off the power, since you don't know where the fuze/breaker to do so is. If you have a meter, you can check to see if there is any power currently coming to the thermostat. If there is, you can then simply go through your panel, securing one circuit at a time, until you find the one that turns off the power to the thermostat. If you don't have a meter, call a tech; in fact, call one anyway.
