Q: Fan blower won't work

asked by on January 26, 2016

My fan blower control does not work.

If your blower does not work at all, there could be several issues. The two most common are the blower motor itself begin bad, and the other is the blower motor resistor. The resistor is what controls the speeds of the blower motor. It does this by regulating the amount of electricity that gets to the blower. If the resistor goes bad all together, the blower will usually stop working. There are other components to this circuit, but these two are the most common issues that come up. I would definitely suggest seeking help from a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to help you diagnose this issue.
