    I have the same problem except my fan will work on high only, AC or heater. I've read about this a bit online and apparently this is a common problem with the HHR. My problem seems to be the blower resistor is shot and needs changing out. On Chevy trucks a common problem to is that the plastic on wire casings near the resistor melt and short out on the metal body.

    Hope this helps

    Yeah I had/have the same issue. Had the resistor changed out a few months ago and now have similar/worse issue. It went back to only working on High but now stopped working all together. I saw other sites indicating a leak in the cabin where water is getting in and shorting it out. I believe my blower motor and resistor is now bad. Chevy should really do something about this. This is the first car I owned with such annoying issues.

    Mine also worked only on high for awhile then it gave out, I also noted a puddle on the passenger side floor after a very heavy rain. Is there a re-call or anything? I really enjoy the car otherwise.

    I have an 06 HHR and I am now on my 3rd resistor replacement. Of course a month later it has stopped working again. The blower will only run on high, AC or heat. This is ridiculous. From what I've read this is a common problem that requires looking into and modified by Chevrolet. 
    Has anybody had any luck with talking to Chevy?

Check the fuse first, then check this:

    Sorry For The Text above, Here is the info:The blower motor resistor is located inside the HVAC duct, (heating,
    ventalation, and cooling) on the passenger side footwell area. It is
    accessed from inside the passenger compartment.You can test it with a
    multimeter to see if it is open. it looks like this when removed.They
    are about 33.00 from When you find the connector on the
    duct that is connected to this resistor block, remove the connector
    with a small screwdriver, you have to find the lock tab and gently lift
    it up and pull on the connector to remove the connector. remove one
    screw and it will come out. most times you can tell if they are bad by
    looking at them. if you cant test it have someone you know that can do
    it. I am 99% positive that that is your problem, Unless the connector
    came loose. Please let us know if this was helpful as i strive to
    improve helping others on a daily basis.

Blower fan, is there a fuse for this?

Yes there is but you can use a test light at blower motor. Simple power and ground test. If test is good replace motor. If no ground replace your resistor

2006 chevy hhr hvac blower/fan

The fan is normally used for both heating and cooling. Check the owners manual for the fuse location and see if it is blown. If so, replace it and try the fan again. If the fuse blows again, the motor is probably seized and will need a mechanic to oil and free or replace it. If you can get to it your self, BE CAREFUL, and touch the motor when it is turned on. if it gets hot without turning, it is probably electrically OK and seized. If it does't get hot or hum and the fuse is OK, Its either bad or has a problem that will need to be traced. Best to take it to a GOOD mechanic that you trust. Trouble shooting can get complicated.

Heater fan seems to run at very low speed

If it smells like "Burnt Plastic",stop using it,and take it somewhere to get looked at,if your not a mechanic.
It's a pretty big job to remove the dash to get to the
blower fan. It sounds like the resistor, or fan blades are hitting the housing of the fan.Good luck.
