Why is my blower motor not working?
In a situation where the motor doesn’t work on any speed, the most likely causes are: a blown power supply fuse, a bad motor ground connection, bad motor speed control module or a failed motor. On all systems, a failed blower motor is least likely. Start by checking the blower fuse and HVAC controller fuse.
Is there a fuse for the blower motor?
Many vehicles have two fuses for the blower motor, one in the interior fuse block and the other under the hood. The blower motor is usually under the dashboard on the passenger side.
How do I know if my blower relay is bad?
If you have a faulty blower motor, you may experience low airflow from the vents, even when the fan is on high. There will be no air coming from the vents if your fan isn’t working due to a bad blower motor resistor.
How do you test a blower motor switch?
Test the switch. Plug the connector back in to the blower motor, and then trace the wire harness back to the connector closest to the blower motor switch, usually located under the dash. Disconnect the connector and set the multimeter to ohms.
Locate the reset button on the furnace and press it to reset the furnace. It is usually located inside the blower compartment on the side of the blower motor. Be cautious as the housing may be hot. If the button is popped up, press it down.
How do I reset my blower motor?
How to Find and Reset your Furnace Motor Blower
- Step 1: Turn off the power to the furnace.
- Step 2: Remove the blower compartment cover.
- Step 3: Make sure the blower is completely cooled off.
- Step 4: Locate the reset button.
- Step 5: Press the button in (assuming that this is your issue and that the button has popped).
Where is the blower motor fuse and relay?
The blower relay is located near the front of the fuse block and is labeled “Blower.” Inspect the center of the relay. If the metal rod inside is broken, the relay will need to be replaced.
What relay controls the blower motor?
The blower motor relay is the electrical switch that is used to supply the power for the vehicle’s blower motor. The blower motor is the component responsible for pushing air through the vents of your vehicle’s heating and air conditioning systems.
Where is the blower motor relay located?
under-hood fuse box
The blower motor relay is generally located in the under-hood fuse box or in the under-dash fuse box. A blown fuse can mimic relay failure.
How do you check a blower motor resistor?
Place one lead of the Ohmmeter on terminal 1 of the resistor. Place the other lead on terminal 2 and check against specifications. If this circuit is open, showing infinity on the Ohmmeter, the blower resistor must be replaced. Move the lead from terminal 2 to terminal 3 and check this reading against specifications.
Do all blower motors have a reset button?
All furnaces are equipped with a reset button. They are generally red or yellow and are located inside the blower compartment. The reset button is a safety feature that will shut down the furnace when a problem is detected, often a hot or overheating furnace, before it trips the circuit breaker.
