Default Re: Blower motor resistor problems

Here's a screen grab of an old thread.
Note the cylinder on the left side of the resistor.
That's a "thermal fuse" .. and when it pops, the motor stops.
You could replace it with a (not too much) higher-rated fuse, or at least with the 420F part listed in the text:


good luck
