Your tech is probably lying. He caused the short. Then he put in a new
fuse without you knowing. Fire him and find another.
Replace your thermostat.

Stormin's right, the fuse on the board is used to protect the low
voltage side of the system, 24v thermostat ect...
Your relay/inducer are 120v. Poof! So the inducer ran before the
tech got there? Relay's on boards go sometimes...nobody's faulty.
And there have been alot of revisions for the boards carrier/brayant
use, and lots of revisions of inducers. They all have problems with
boards. 5yrs sounds about right though, I guess the warranty just
expired? The shit is all engineered to fail. Yup crapola! And
everything is marked up 400%. And to get it done you have to deal
with some BS call center. Life sucks I know. Keep insurance on
your shit. That's all anyone can do :(

A bit late here, but let me suggest you pick a brand / model for good
reviews but stick to the basic model (single speed) and get your HVAC
guy to install the "FanHandler" product. I have it and it's just
awesome. Makes your furnace work like a variable speed. It's only
$200US (if you can get it yourself--good luck) for the part.... just
make sure that the motor that comes with the furnace is a high-quality
No, I don't work for them... check my posts on the matter...
