Blown fuse in Control Panel of Carrier Heater


I'm quite the idiot, I was taking off the cover of my thermostat while it was running and I believe I blew a fuse in the control panel of my Carrier Heater. There was a 5 amp blown fuse inside when I opened it up. However, I cannot figure out how to replace it. I've never dealt with fuses before. Any ideas on what I should do would be very helpful. Its getting cold in here!

It's a car fuse. It pulls straight up away from the board. Caution make sure you turn power off to the furnace before removing the fuse.

Blown fuse in Control Panel of Carrier Heater


I'm still an idiot, I can't locate where I need to replace the fuse. I have located the board but I don't see anything that looks like a blown fuse. What would it look like?

take alook at the transformer might be there or even just a push button reset on the transformer itself....if you power down then back on do you get any lights or action within the furnace without touching anything?if it is car fuse it should be facing you as you look into the board with a stamped rating number on it.
